Shipping procedure

Once your online order is processed, you will be notified by your account email that a collection has been booked with First Freight Couriers. Thereafter you will receive regular email notifications of the delivery status up to and until you receive the order.

If you do not receive any emails regarding your order, please check your Spam and Junk Mail folders. If you still do not receive any email notifications, please contact BKA to investigate.


BKA uses appropriate packaging for the contents of online orders, and will use protection where needed. Where many items are ordered in one order, items will be packed in as few boxes/packages as possible. BKA re-uses packaging materials for shipping goods wherever possible to reduce impact on the environment.


If you experience any issues with your delivery such as unreasonable delays, not receiving any email notifications, inappropriate service from the couriers or damaged/missing items that you ordered, please contact BKA to investigate immediately.
