    We will use a specialist courier to perform the same day delivery and the cost will be subject to quote based on the volume of the delivery and the destination post code.

    Delivery to Northern Ireland Post Codes

    Due to the post Brexit agreements made by UK Government, we are now having to treat shipments to Northern Ireland the same as export orders for any other country.

    This is not ideal and we have had to make changes to our internal process to accommodate these orders. FedEx and other carriers are now charging export rates for shipments to Northern Ireland, Silmid.com has chosen to absorb these costs to ensure we are doing everything possible to support our customers in Northern Ireland.

    If you are based in Northern Ireland please ensure we have the correct EORI XI number for your business to prevent snags and hold-ups when shipping to "BT" post codes.
