GDS Delivery Options
We aim to keep as many products as possible in stock at all times however our website does not show live stock. If you wish to double check your dispatch just give us a call and we will confirm when we are dispatching and give you an ETA.
In most cases, orders placed before 3:30pm will be dispatched on the same day via Interlink Express who will endeavour to deliver the next working day (we don't ship weekends so orders placed after 3:30pm Friday will leave Monday (stock depending)). Tracking and a one hour delivery window will be provided where possible. You should also be offered the option to change your delivery.
Please note that under certain circumstances outside the control of us or our carrier, deliveries may occasionally be delayed. Please use the tracking number provided by email / text for up to date information. All goods will require a signature upon delivery.
On certain orders, to avoid delay, we may part ship stock items with other back order items to follow. You will be informed of this and no further delivery charge will be applied. If you prefer we can hold your order until all items are ready to ship – just let us know.
In some cases, again to avoid delaying your order, we may choose to ship items directly from manufacturers or distributors. These are usually shipped on a next day basis, but this may mean that you receive more than one delivery with items in various parcels. You will be informed of this with ETAs for each item.
Printers are all dispatched from the relevant distribution warehouse:
- For Canon Printers the order cut off is 3.15pm for next day
- For HP Printers the order cut off is 4pm for next day
We use as much recycled packaging as possible in our own warehouse to ensure that your goods are packed for safe transit.

Returning Faulty Items
If you discover that an item bought from GDS is faulty please call us as soon as possible so that we can investigate the claim. If the claim is valid, we will arrange to collect and replace / refund the item and in turn notify our supplier or the manufacturer. We may ask for a description and photos of the faulty item to enable us to investigate the fault.
Please note that in some cases the manufacturer may request that they deal with the faulty claim directly. If this is the case, we will provide the contact details for that manufacturer. Your printer serial number and your sales invoice will be required in some instances.
