Postage Rates

♦ If you purchase and pay for your order before midday on a week day your order will usually be posted that day.  Orders placed after midday, bank holidays and weekends are posted the following working day.  

♦ ALL items are in stock unless stated otherwise.

♦ We do not post on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays.



UK postage is a flat rate of £2.95 for Second Class Postage and £3.95 for First Class Postage.  All items mailed within the UK will normally be sent using the Signed For service if over £25.  Royal Mail aim to deliver most First Class mail by the next working day, including Saturdays, but this is not guaranteed.  Second Class post usually arrives within 2-3 days.

If you require guaranteed next day delivery please select the Special Delivery option at checkout before midday. Special Delivery orders placed after midday may not be processed until the following weekday. Special Delivery orders weighing less than 2kg will cost £11, and those over 2kg will cost £28.

Please note that we only post Monday - Friday, therefore a Special Delivery purchase placed on a Friday afternoon will only be posted the following Monday to arrive on Tuesday. Special Delivery is only guaranteed for weekday delivery, and not Saturdays. A Saturday Guaranteed delivery option is also available at £14 for orders weighing less than 2kg, and £32 for those over 2kg. 



*Postage and packaging (P&P) using Royal Mail International Signed For is £9 for the first item and then £1 for each additional item (except light items such as jewellery) paid for on the same invoice (ie. £9 for one item, £10 for 2 items, £11 for 3 items). 

*Please note that postage of heavier items is an additional £3.

Royal Mail aim to deliver International Signed For Airmail within 3-8 working days to Europe and 5-10 working days to international locations outside Europe, but please allow up to 14 working days.  If an order consists of multiple items we may send 2 separate packages.



Delivery by courier is an option available to the following European countries:

Zone 1 - Belgium, France, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Ireland, Austria, Spain, Poland,  Portugal.
Zone 1 deliveries cost £9 and should be delivered in 3-5 working days.

Zone 2 - Italy, Sweden, Denmark.
Zone 2 deliveries cost £12 and should be delivered in 4-6 working days.

We can provide courier quotes for other countries if you need your parcel urgently.

For extra large or exceptionally heavy orders we reserve the right to amend shipping charges and we will send a Paypal payment request for the extra postage, or you may prefer to cancel the order.  Some of our heavier items are marked not available to buyers outside the EU as postage of these items is exorbitant and we wish to keep postage rates of the lighter typical orders as low as possible.  But, please contact us if you require a quote for the heavier items.

Import taxes: It is the buyer's responsibility to pay local customs fees, import tax etc.  We do not falsify information on the customs form as this is illegal.

If you have any queries about the P&P please contact us.
