All deliveries will be subject to an appropriate delivery charge. This will be detailed on the site during checkout. We strive to ship all orders, received by 9.00am on a working day, out that same day. We use Royal Mail or Parcelforce (for larger consignments). The customer will be responsible for the goods once delivery is made or if delivery is attempted. The customer will also be responsible for any additional costs incurred directly as a result of them delaying delivery and the order being returned to us.
Our standard UK service takes two to three working days. Cost is calculated by weight/size up to a maximum of £4.75. Our Express Service is £6.25 and £7.95 (for larger consignments) and is a next working day tracked service. These prices are for the UK Mainland and prices may differ non-mainland addresses such as Northern Ireland. Express orders will be shipped using Royal Mail 24 hour or Parcelforce 24 services. Please note that some destinations in the UK are a two day service. All our delivery options are tracked. Free Standard shipping is available on orders over £50.00 (UK Mainland orders only).
We will ship most items to International destinations. Some items are restricted to UK delivery, because of size, are too fragile or the licence forbids us from selling overseas. Any restrictions on delivery will be listed on the product page. International shipping will be with Royal Mail International "Signed For service" or Parcelforce "Global Priority" service. Delivery to European Destinations takes up to 5 working days, the Rest of the World 7 to 10 days working days. At busy periods, such as Christmas, delivery can take longer.
Payment is calculated by weight during checkout. Although we try our best to calculate the cost accurately, volume weight based on the size of the box is difficult to predict on orders with multiple items. Occasionally we may underestimate the cost involved. If there is a significant extra charge, we will approach you to see if you wish to pay the extra shipping or if you wish to cancel your order and receive a refund. All goods for destinations outside the European Union will be sent free of British VAT (Value Added Tax). Discount will calculated as you go through the checkout process.
You have the option of viewing our prices in British Pounds, US Dollars or Euros. However, your payment will always be in British Pounds and will be subject to changes in the Exchange Rate when your order is processed. If you do not see your country listed during checkout we do not accept online payments from that country. Please Email us your order at email@example.com and we can arrange for you to pay using Bank Transfer.
