SHIPPING

The current Covid-19 crisis has caused us and other businesses some initial problems with shipping but we are pleased to say that most of those issues have now been resolved.

 

We prefer to use Royal Mail “signed and tracked“ option where possible but for some larger or more valuable items we may insist on using direct priority couriers.

 

We charge flat rate shipping ( up to a certain weight or value) based on three zones:

 

£15 – Domestic – any address in the United Kingdom

£25 – Europe and USA and Canada

£45 – Rest of the World including Asia and South America

 

In recent months there has been a large increase in shipping costs to the far East and we have sadly had to raise our rates for sending there.

PACKING

We try to keep costs down and we are also aware of the effects of packing on the environment.

 

Where possible we try to recycle packaging materials. If you require new pristine packing boxes/envelopes (say for a gift) then please let us know.

 

Large posters are usually rolled and sent in firm tubes – if you require flat packing for any large item then please let us know on ordering:in such cases, there may be a surcharge to cover the extra costs.

 

Other items are send in appropriate packaging.

INSURANCE

We will cover all shipments with full loss insurance up to £250. Thereafter a surcharge is needed.

 

We will consider sending items without full insurance but this is at the purchaser’s decision and risk. If you wish us to do this then please indicate in writing what you want us to do.
