Calculating Shipping Costs
Both the shipping charge and the tax are automatically calculated at checkout. Simply add the items to your cart, then click on the Cart icon at the top of the screen and select Edit Cart and this will show you the shipping charge. If this is not the case click on the ? symbol to the right of "Shipping (to be calculated):" enter your Country, County and Post code. The shipping costs for your country and area will be displayed. VAT will also be deducted for those countries outside the EU. You do not need to enter payment details or set up an account to do this.
If you have selected items of unknown weight we will be unable to quote for shipping until the item is in stock, weights are automatically updated onto the website as soon as the information is known. To reduce shipping try and limit each order to less than 1800 grams, this is often the cheapest way to ship items. Items marked as Large or Restricted can not be shipped via Royal Mail or Airmail and must go via courier, this will automatically be calculated at checkout.
Expected Delivery Times
Delivery times are given as a guide only, if the delivery is urgent or required for a specific date then the next day delivery service should be used.
Royal Mail First Class aims to deliver within 1 working day from dispatch.
Royal Mail Overseas generally delivers within two weeks, although this can be longer at peak times and may be subject to customs delay at the destination country.
Royal Mail is not a guaranteed service, so items may take longer than expected.
Next Day Delivery
Orders for next day delivery should be placed before 10am, orders placed after 10am will not be shipped until the next working day. We ship Tuesday to Friday (we are closed Monday, any orders placed after 10am on Friday and before 10am on Tuesday are shipped on Tuesday). Certain areas may not offer next day delivery, these are shown at checkout.
