Purchases from abroad (outside of the UK)
- I may not be able to accept orders from countries beyond the United Kingdom (UK), this may be due to my limitation as a hobbyist, or due to either high postage costs or rigorous import requirements to your country. If this is the case, you will be informed as soon as possible but please feel free to contact me if you still wish to pursue a purchase. In any event please accept my apologies if this situation arises.
- Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, many countries are offering reduced services and experiencing significant delays in handling parcels. Your parcel may take an additional month to reach over normal posting times.
- Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, some countries are not able to accept international post at the moment, however this list changes every week. If your country cannot accept post at the time of ordering/posting, I shall inform you and offer you a full refund.
- VAT or Sales Tax is not applied at the point of purchase. The purchaser may be required to pay a tax charge or import duty determined by their local government (these charges will vary according to the laws of each country.)
Postage and handling charges
Each item will have a handling and postage charge applied to it during the checkout process.
This charge applies to postage within the UK only, for purchases from outside of the UK please select your destination country from the pull down menu or contact me using the contact page and I will quote you and invoice you separately for the items and postage to your country.
the postage charge applied at checkout, is to cover single item postage. If multiple items are purchased the postage and handling costs may increase, but I will endeavour to reduce the actual cost for multiple items if possible and then refund you the saving (less the Paypal transaction fee).
If you find that the costs for postage are getting too high, please contact me telling me the items you wish to purchase and I will quote you a postage price for the items you wish to order. If this is agreeable, I will then invoice you through Paypal and post the order once payment has been received.
Last dates for orders for Christmas:
