Please allow three business days from date of purchase to date of shipment. If you live in Northern Europe you should receive the Lairdship Portfolio within approximately 1.5 weeks. For deliveries to Southern Europe please allow for 2 weeks. If you live outside Europe, please allow approximately 2 – 4 weeks from date of order to delivery at your place. Certain countries, e.g. Australia, Far East and South America, may have longer delivery times.

The accessories are made-to-order dropshipped products and have approximately 3 – 4 weeks delivery time.

The shipping carriers used to transport our products are well-established international shipping carriers. However, once the product has left the place of fabrication Native Woods Preservation (NWP) does not control of the shipment and can therefore not warrant delivery time. Shipment delays may sometimes occur due to varying customs security processing.


There may still be some delays due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please allow for additional time for the order to arrive due to possible flight restrictions and cancellations.

Christmas shipping

In December all shipments take more time than during the rest of the year, particularly long-distance. Hence, in order to be safe you should order as early as possible and add a couple of weeks to our ordinary shipping times.
