We accept orders for both UK and Overseas delivery. Some of our products are not suitable for delivery outside of the UK and these will be identified in the listing. By the UK we mean the Mainland UK only. Orders placed for these products outside of the Mainland UK will be cancelled and a full refund made.
Our system will calculate the shipping cost for most countries. Where you believe the shipping cost to be above reasonable, please contact us by email before you purchase and we will validate the system calculated cost. Note that this situation is only likely to occur for countries that do not have traditional trading links with the UK where we have to arrange a courier delivery as a result of the combined weight of the shipment
Where an option for free delivery is shown in the price panel on checkout, you may select this if it is for UK postal area only. The system will show free shipping automatically if it is offered on selected products. Where free shipping items are mixed with non free shipping items, no free shipping allowance is made in the calculation. They should be ordered separately.
We endeavour to ship orders within 24 hours of order and typically for items over 2Kg in weight, they will be dispatched via courier. Delivery times vary according to destination but for most UK mainland locations it will be next working day when dispatched by courier. The Highlands and Islands of Scotland may take up to 3 days. We cannot be held responsible for shipping delays by the Royal Mail or our courier service providers
Should an item be out of stock and cannot be restocked within 3 working days of your order, we will contact you with details of when the item can be delivered and offer to cancel the order and provide a full refund.
Please inspect items before signing for them from any courier service. Any damage should be noted as an exception on the courier delivery form. Items accepted without notifying the courier of damage cannot be replaced or refunded.
