At Polaris Bikewear our aim is making sure you get your order as quickly as possible. Below each header is information relating to how we get our goods in your hands and how our costs are calculated.
Please ensure all your contact details are 100% correct at the time of ordering. Help us deliver your order as efficiently as possibly by providing us with a mobile telephone number when placing your order on our website. This way your parcel carrier can contact you, should they need to on the day of your delivery. If you are ordering from overseas a telephone number is a requirement for customs and providing one will speed up your clearance / delivery speed.
- General Order Information
We aim to process and ship all orders placed before 2pm (Monday to Friday) within 1-2 working days. This may not always be possible during the busy trading periods such as Christmas and may lead up to a delay of an extra 1-2 working week days. Orders received after 2pm on a Friday will be shipped the following Monday at the earliest - You can always guarantee same day dispatch and fast track delivery within 1-2 working week days when placing your order Monday to Friday and upgrading your chosen delivery method during checkout.
Our next day services exclude the Highlands & Islands of the United Kingdom unless specified.
Please be aware that during busy holiday periods, such as Christmas we cannot be held responsible for delivery delays that have occurred once an order has left our premises. This is then the responsibility of your dedicated courier. In all circumstances we do our best to ensure your delivery arrives on time but we cannot account for external factors. Our last postage date is dictated by the postal service or courier working dates through these periods and this information will be displayed prominently on our website and social channels.
- Non Polaris Brand Items Shipping
Please be aware that some non-home-brand / outsourced product may be subject to an extended delivery period due to demand, shipping forwarding or warehouse locations. We endeavour to keep shipping times as low as possible for these product but it may be unavoidable, especially at times when demand outweighs supply.
All Polaris orders are subject to our flat rate charge unless under special circumstance, all clothing orders under £50 GBP will cost between a flat rate weight based fee from £5.99 to £7.99 depending on your selected service. These advertised postage pricing values refer to domestic UK shipping.
Our postage costs are calculated from the combined cost of; postage, packaging, man hours and the living wage pay of our staff.
We offer a FREE "collect from store" service from our HQ in Dronfield (S18 1PN) which we encourage local customers to use, our collection opening times are 10am - 5pm.

If your order is marked as "shipped" but selected "collect from store" this means your order is ready for collection.
