If you order the preserved option, you will receive bait that has been short-term preserved. As long as you store them sensibly in a cool place with the bag sealed, they will still be in top condition in 6-8 weeks. If you order the freezer option, they will be delivered ready for you to freeze immediately upon receipt. The boilies are freshly rolled to order, including the preserved baits, so allow a few days from placing your order to dispatch. Once dispatched, your order will be delivered on a 24 hour courier service. The courier can leave your parcel with a neighbour that you specify, or can deliver to your work. You will receive a tracking email from the courier, so you can keep an eye on it. Please be aware that although the stated sizes of boilie are usually accurate, the finished product can vary plus or minus by approximately a millimetre. Whilst we make efforts to produce the best boilies we can, the shape of the finished round boilies will not be a geometrically perfect sphere. Please do not order this product if you require an absolutely spherical bait for some reason.
