Shipping & Returns
We endeavour to despatch all in stock items ordered before 12pm on the same working day, in stock orders placed after 12pm will be despatched next working day. For heavier or more valuable orders, we may upgrade to courier delivery at no extra cost if we think it provides a more appropriate level of tracking and cover.
When you place an order you will be able to select your preferred shipping method in the checkout.
Please also note that our shipping rates are weight-based and include a reasonable allowance for the weight of packaging materials. We do not make profit on shipping costs and will only charge what it costs us to ship the item.
Mini Saver Postage
Mini saver postage options where available will exclude most packaging allowing the parcel to fit within Royal Mails large letter PIP size. This allows for reductions in the cost of postage meaning you pay less but will exclude things like Boxes, Blister packaging Etc.
We ship products worldwide with very few exceptions, if for some reason you find that we do not have postage options for your location please let us know so we can add them in.
We are registered for VAT in the UK and our website shows both VAT and ex-VAT prices for you. When you place the order through the website, the Basket will automatically deduct the VAT from your order when you get to the Checkout. Printed materials are 0% rated for VAT, so there is no VAT to be deducted from our rulesets. For customers in the EU, please be aware that you may be liable for import VAT and handling fees on any packages coming into your country.
