EuropeDeliveries to European destinations are sent by Royal Mail International Tracked, signed for on delivery and insured service. Deliveries usually take 4 to 5 working days subject to seasonal variations. Costs are approximately 17.00 Euros for the first item and 2.50 Euros for subsequent items. About half the actual cost.
United StatesWe offer two delivery options for our US customers.
Royal Mail International Tracked which is charged at £18 for the first item and £4 for each subsequent item. This service typically takes 7 - 14 working days (and sometimes longer) to the USA. As it links up to USPS there is unlikely to be any Import Tax levied upon arrival to the USA.
Express UPS Shipping is charged at a flat rate of £25. This service typically takes 3-4 working days. Order before noon (UK time) for same day dispatch.
Please Note : Orders sent via UPS which exceed the US duty free import threshold (currently $800) are likely attract an import tax (see Tax on International Sales below). Splitting an order into separate lower value consignments may avoid duty.
Rest of the WorldWe use Royal Mail International Tracked to destinations where this service is available, tracked, signed for on delivery and insured. We charge £18 for the first item and £4 for each subsequent item. Delivery times depend on destination but can be as long as three weeks to Australia and New Zealand.
If you are in a hurry for your order, and prepared to pay a further sum (to be advised depending upon the weight of your parcel) we can quote you for a faster service.
Tax on International SalesOrders for delivery outside the UK and EU will be free of VAT (Sales Tax). This is reflected in the prices displayed on the web site where an applicable delivery country has been selected.
Although we do our best to ensure orders do not attract import duty, customers are liable for any such fees levied upon their purchase by their local customs authorities. Please check your local laws for more information.
