FREE postage option
Simply choose the Free Delivery (UK) option during checkout, and we'll send your order free of charge to any address in the UK, using an economy service of our choice from the list below. This option is also suitable for BFPO (British Forces Post Office) addresses. If you need your items more quickly, please choose the Express Delivery (UK) option from as little as £3.99 extra, depending on the weight of your package, and we'll use a premium service of our choice (see below).
FREE packaging and handling
We charge no more than the standard rates for the various services, with no extra for packing or handling. We pride ourselves on the quality of our packaging, and your items will be well protected in transit.
FAST dispatch of your item
We usually send items by the next working day (Monday to Friday, but not weekends or public holidays) after receiving payment. We regret that we cannot accommodate personal collections. If the cost of postage shows in the checkout as £999,999 (!) this means the option you've selected isn't available - for example, Second Class Signed For or International over 2Kg, Special Delivery over 10Kg, or any weight over 30Kg.
Large (heavy) orders
If you want to buy several items which will exceed these weight limits, please contact us first and we will be happy to advise on the best way of splitting your order into multiple packages.
