Delivery and postage information
If paying by credit/debit card or by Paypal your postage is calculated automatically at checkout. This calculation is based on postage volume and weight rather than JUST weight to offer you the best value for money. If you are paying by Personal Cheque or Postal order you must contact us prior to your order and your postage will be calculated separately and you will be contacted regarding this amount. If your order is delayed for any reason we will contact you to explain to you why your order has been delayed and confirm a new dispatch and delivery date. If this new date is unacceptable you have the right to cancel your order and a full refund will be paid. It is your responsibility to provide an accurate delivery address and contact details with your order in case we need to contact you. Postage charges are displayed in your Shopping Cart prior to you completing your purchase. All order are sent securely packaged with a quality packaging product and an invoice receipt. All mail is sent with a return address label and proof of posting is obtained at the time of posting. Please request updated postal costs from firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note the Channel Island, Scilly Island and Scottish Islands are listed under the Island names in the County selection drop down. Please select your island from the drop down list. Groups of Island listed as "Generic" can be ignored.
We would like to apologies to our customer for the increase in our postage costs from 28th March 20118. Unfortunately these costs have been imposed on us by the UK Post Office. We only charge a small additional amount to cover the cost of effective packaging for our products on top of our postage cost and we like to think we operate a fair postage policy. If you feel that the cost of your postage is excessive please contact us and we will willingly dispatch your bulky items by an alternative means (e.g.DPD or MyHermes). In order to have your items delivered by Courier please select the Courier Shipping option as your preferred method of dispatch. If you require additional services please email or contact us and we will assemble your parcel and you will then be invoiced separately for these additional costs.
