UK Mainland customers, we have a 3 tier rate of packing, handling and delivery.
Large or heavy items are shipped using a courier delivery service for delivery to your door (including VAT). Non-mainland/highland UK delivery areas or excessively heavy/large items may have a higher charge, depending on the size/weight of your total order and your location.
Please note that all courier and some Royal Mail delivered packages require a signature on delivery.
For all smaller, lighter items, we use UKMail or Royal Mail. The standard charge for these items is £2.95 (including VAT).
Please be advised that our overall shipping costs are calculated by weight and so larger orders, made up of a number of lighter items, may be charged at our courier rate.
