We have gone to great lengths with our on-line shopping cart to ensure that customers are charged a reasonable postage rate. However due to the complexity of postal charges, parcel weight, class, size, destination etc., it just isn't possible for us to cover every permutation for every destination. When trying to calculate postage costs the following needs to be considered
UK Customers pay only £2.65 for postage & packing on small items weighing up to 100g and £3.95 for postage & packing on small items weighing up to 750g, this represents 90% of our products and services. For valuable items Royal Mail Special Delivery is also available from £7.25 up to £9.50 for 1kg. This is a fast, secure, tracked service that gets priority handling and registered next day delivery, with compensation up to £1,000.00.
International items weighing up to 1kg are sent via Royal Mail Signed For International. Prices for small items under 100g start at £9, under 500g £14, under 1000g up to £18, depending on location . This is a secure, tracked service that gets priority handling and registered delivery, with compensation up to £500.00. Royal Mail International Standard is also available, prices starting at £5, for small, low cost items. Heavier items weighing 2kg – 20kg are sent via Royal Mail Standard Parcels in the UK or via Parcel Force with additional compensation available. Items valued above £500.00 are sent via Parcel Force and all International packages heavier than 2kg are sent via Parcel Force Worldwide.
International customers placing orders weighing in excess of 1kg will incur significantly higher shipping charges. Items sent via Parcel Force Worldwide are the most difficult to calculate shipping on until we know the postal destination and parcel weight and dimensions.
We reserve the right to contact you for an additional payment to cover the correct amount of postage and packing prior to shipping your order if required. At this point you will have an opportunity to cancel your order if you decide that the postage is excessive.
There are 12 world postal pricing zones and the website by default is set to charge Europe, Rest of World (American/North America, Canada), Rest of World 2 (Australia, New Zealand). Please contact us if you feel that an unreasonable amount of postage + packing has been added to your order. Call our customer services on 01856 731269.
International customers should consider the following:
By default, some larger and heavier items on our website can only be shipped separately. This is due to packing and postal weight limitations. You will need to call us if you require a combined postage option on blocked products and we will advise you accordingly.
