Shipping & Returns
Shipping costs are calculated by weight and destination and we endeavour to keep these charges to the absolute minimum.
Our standard small parcel UK service is Royal Mail 24 with an expected delivery schedule of 3-5 working days, however orders in excess of £50 will receive an automatic upgrade to 1st class recorded delivery.
If required for smaller value orders, you will be given the option to choose an insured service – either 1st class recorded or special delivery (next day) – both of which carry an additional charge.
Standard UK delivery rates start at £2.50 although most packages will fall into the £3.95 band
Special Delivery is available to UK addresses only and is a guaranteed next day service, if order placed before 12 noon weekdays; however, Royal Mail do not guarantee Saturday deliveries for orders sent using this service on Fridays. Orders placed over the weekend will be shipped on Monday (excluding bank holidays) for delivery the following day.
Special delivery rates start at £10, which will cover most packages, however larger items will be extra.
Large / heavy parcel delivery is made by courier and require a signature on delivery. Please ensure you provide a valid email address and mobile number in order for the courier to contact you with a 1 hour time slot on the day your goods will arrive.
Courier delivery rates start at £7.50

We are proud to say that we have customers in over 80 countries across the globe, therefore wherever in the world you are located, we’re sure to be able to ship to your destination.
All overseas orders are sent by Royal Mail International Signed for which is a tracked insured service that we have found to be the best priced, most speedy and reliable. In certain circumstances or for wholesale distribution, we may use an alternative carrier depending on the size and weight of your package.
Customers are responsible for checking with their local customs office and postal services to ensure that the products they are ordering are allowed entry into their country of residence. Customers are also reminded that local duty and taxes may be applicable when importing goods into your country.
We are not able to accept any responsibility or liability for products that are held by customs in a country outside the UK or for any surcharges that arise as a result of local duty or taxes. Customers requesting orders to be delivered to destinations outside the UK do so at their own risk.
Customs Fees, Duties & Taxes
As the UK is now no longer part of the EU, orders below €150 shipped internationally, including countries within Europe, may incur an import and/or customs charge before being released to you by your customs department. All orders in excess of €150 will incur import tax & duty at the %rate of your countries VAT plus customs clearance fees. UK taxes are discounted from the product's advertised price once you enter your address at checkout.
We do not deliver goods Duty Paid at the moment, therefore any external charges on an order are the responsibility of the customer/consignee.
The shipping fee calculated at checkout is unrelated to any potential import duties or customs clearance fees.
European delivery rates start at £9.00 | Rest of World delivery rates start at £12.00
