This tap comes from Hong Kong and when they say between 5-8 days for delivery that's exactly what they mean. Also, beware of the postage costs....after forking out over £110 for this tap, I ended having to pay an additional £32 for import duties and taxes which I was in no way expecting as this was not mentioned at the point of sale. There was an urgency to process the order as quickly as possible rather than spelling out any additional charges that there may be.
The tap isn't working the way it should but I seriously can't be bothered with returning and awaiting a replacement especially with me having fork out carriage charges and wait a further 8 days for delivery.
Overall though, a very attractive looking tap and will certainly be the topic of conversation when visitors use your bathroom!
