We like to keep things simple.
Our shipping charges are free for all retail orders shipped within the mainland United Kingdom. Our chosen carriers are reliable partners such as Royal Mail and a carefully selected group of carriers such as APC or Parcelforce, usually this will be by 2nd class postage (2-3 days UK) and for higher value orders a tracked service is always used. Need it fast? Then select the alternative carrier shown (if applicable) at checkout, we charge you roughly what it costs us and you will get your order on a first delivery attempt within one to two days. All non-retail domestic orders are sent by carrier with a one to two day transit on stock items. Again at as low a cost as possible with a last orders cut-off at midday during the working week.
International retail orders are again sent as above but at a subsidised cost. Depending upon where you are please allow good enough and reasonable time for transit by standard mail services, these can vary considerably and please allow for customs clearance and charges at import. From experience 'trouble spots' are Italy, Eire and Russia for extended transit and also Australia where customs are particularly problematic. For non-retail orders we have greater control and communications at point of import, again low as cost is offered and if you prefer just send us your prepaid labels to ship by your own carrier.
All charges are shown in the checkout pre-purchase so you know before you buy.
