International Orders & Delivery
International orders are sent by Courier or Royal Mail Airmail and the delivery cost is calculated according to the order weight. International customers can see the estimated delivery cost by placing items into the shopping cart and selecting their country from the list. This automatically calculated delivery cost is correct for the majority of international orders, but in some cases this may need to be adjusted in which case customers will be notified by email and given the option to proceed or cancel the order.
For large orders or heavy items we recommend that International customers contact us prior to ordering to request a delivery cost estimate. Simply submit a provisional order by email so we can calculate the most competitive delivery price.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Goods sent outside the EU may incur additional customs duty, taxes and handling charges. It is the customers responsibility to pay these charges so we advise that the these costs are checked before ordering.

5. Items are returned at customers risk so customers are advised to pack items carefully and retain proof of posting. Valuable items should be sent using an insured service.
UK customers may exercise their rights under Consumer Contract Regulations to return a order and receive a full refund including any P&P charges if the complete order is returned within 14 days of receipt. Please note that return postage is at the customers expense.
