Delivery by our approved suppliers

What 'delivery by our approved supplier' means

Products labelled 'delivered by our approved suppliers' will be delivered directly by the manufacturer, or their chosen courier. By doing this, we can offer you an extended range of products.

For large, heavy items, delivery will be arranged directly by our supplier. You’ll be contacted by the supplier close to the delivery time with a proposed delivery date.

For smaller items, the supplier will not contact you prior to delivery and will despatch to you as soon as possible within your expected delivery time. If your order is overdue, contact Customer Services on 03456 049 049.

Why am I getting my delivery from an external supplier when I purchased from John Lewis & Partners?

In order to offer you an extended range, including specialist and personalised items, we arrange for certain products to be delivered by our approved suppliers.

Delivery in these cases will be managed directly by our suppliers, but we’ll do whatever we can to assist you in the event of any concerns.

Help with delivery from an approved supplier

Can I track my item from your approved supplier?

It may be possible for you to track smaller items - check your confirmation email or any communication from the supplier for further details. We’re sorry that you won’t be able to track large item deliveries being fulfilled by our approved suppliers. We’ll always help if you have any concerns, though please wait until your delivery due time has passed as it means we can assist you more easily.

To enquire about your order, contact Customer Services on 03456 049 049. They will be able to contact the supplier for you and then get back to you with an update.

Why is my delivery from your approved supplier slightly longer than I’d expect?
