This is charged at a rate of 10% of your order value, with a minimum of £2.95 and a maximum of £5. This is intended to cover the cost of Royal Mail postage only, not packaging, time etc. A recorded delivery option is also available.

Any order placed prior to 24:00hrs today will be mailed tomorrow (we have no post collections on Saturday and Sunday) and will be with you by 13:00hrs the following working day. Please note that Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays are not considered to be delivery days under this service The cost of this is based on the weight of the items that you add to your shopping cart - the heavier the items, the more this service will cost.

Certain remote locations within mainland UK and some UK islands have longer delivery timescales under this service. If you are in one of these remote areas, please check the Royal Mail website for delivery details.
Postage - International
International delivery is made using the Royal Mail Airmail service. The cost is based on parcel weight and destination. The checkout process will calculate this automatically for you, based on the country of delivery. Airmail parcels are sent within 48 hours of order and delivery times will vary from country to country. Royal Mail state (although this is not guaranteed and does vary widely) that after despatch it "usually takes three more days to reach Western Europe, five days to reach Eastern Europe and seven days to the rest of the world". These are working days and are an indication ONLY.
Royal Mail Airmail has a maximum parcel weight of 2kg. Therefore, if your goods weigh more than this amount, you may receive your purchases in multiple parcels and some packs of heavier goods may have been split to keep the parcels within this weight limit.
Please note that we DO NOT send to overseas PO box addresses, please do not complete an order if this is part of your requirements for an overseas order.
