Shipping charges are calculated automatically after you have selected your region or UK postcode on the cart page up to certain maximum parcel weights depending on the destination. If your destination is not shown please email for a quote.
You can see the current shipping cost at any time by clicking on the drop down menu on the cart page which will then display the shipping choices available. You will need to select one of these before checking out. Note that you cannot checkout with £0.00 shipping option. If this option shows in the list then that is because a product in your basket has an over rider in place to restrict certain shipping methods (which would otherwise be available based on weight alone) due to the size or hazard rating of the product. Also note that the website only increments shipping costs upwards once a shipping method has been chosen. Therefore if you remove items from your basket you may need to re select a lower shipping method before checking out.
International orders will be sent by Royal Mail or Courier at our discretion depending on parcel size, shape and value.
In the event that your consignment does not arrive then we will compensate you for your loss or resend the order but only after the respective claim procedure has been completed for the chosen carrier. These procedures can be found on the respective carriers’ web sites. Note that although Royal Mail usually charge less for light weight parcels, the timescale for their claims procedure is often lengthy and we cannot compensate you or resend the order until this procedure has been completed.
Generally couriers will try to deliver a parcel up to three times before returning it to us. It is your responsibility to make arrangements to receive the consignment which will need signing for, and this may mean that you will need to have it shipped to a different address from where you live such as a work address or neighbour if you will not be in during normal working hours. If you place an order and are then not available to receive it resulting in it being returned to us, then we will refund to you the value of the order placed excluding the cost of both forward and return shipping.
Please note that in all cases we reserve the right to alter the shipping method chosen, which will be regarded only as your preferred shipping method.
