We want to ensure that our shipping fee is as competitive as possible, therefore we reserve the right to default some orders to quotation submission prior to payment. All shipping is subject to UK VAT at the standard rate dependent upon the delivery address:
Shipments within the EU are subject to UK VAT at the prevailing rate, currently 20%.
Shipments within Europe but outside the EU have a flat customs charge, this charge is included in the shipping costs but does not cover any duty which may apply at the port of entry.
Shipments outside the EU cover the cost of getting the goods to you, they do not cover any import duty and any local or federal sales taxes which may be applied.
Please remember that delivery charges are dependent upon the size and weight of the shipment. If a quotation is required prior to placing an order, please contact us and we will be pleased to supply a full quotation to you.
If you have any special requirements please contact us to discuss them.

Very Important Please Note:
UK Royal Mail postal deliveries are shipped entirely at the purchaser's risk unless the tracked and insured option is chosen. This is because it is Royal Mail's problem if they fail to deliver a parcel and not ours. Royal Mail will not accept any liablity for lost parcels for 15 working days and even then it's very difficult to get them to pay any compensation. 1st Class Mail is delivered with no problem most of the time but we do get problems. We would advise customers with expensive or urgent parcels to chose another delivery method that may be more secure and reliable. By using the Royal Mail tracked and insured option the purchaser is insured against loss or damage. All delivery options are available at the check out.
