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. The website may instruct customers to contact us about delivery if the selected goods are outside the scope of our normal delivery service.
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 UK may incur additional charges including customs duty, taxes, handling and storage charges. It is the customers responsibility to pay these charges so we advise that customers these costs are checked before ordering.
Returned Undelivered Items
If your order is returned to us undelivered due to an incorrect or incomplete delivery address being provided or following an unsuccessful delivery attempt we will have to charge for re-delivery before sending it again. If redelivery is not required then a refund will be issued following return of the goods for the value of the goods less any delivery and return costs incurred.
