Overseas Delivery and Terms:
We send goods all around the World. The cost is based on the weight of the Goods and Volumetric size. Select the destination in the Country drop down menu at the check out and the cost of despatch will be calculated. We reserve the right to amend charges or not send goods where the cost in sending is prohibitive or where we consider the goods unlikely to make safe passage. You will be notified in advance of any issues.
The sending of certain goods is also prohibited in most countries. Alcohol being a main issue and all goods containing alcohol cannot be sent overseas.
Deliveries to most European destinations allow 2 to 3 days, United States and Canada 2 to 3 days, Australia 3 to 5 days. Delivery can be delayed to remote areas or by local Customs officials.
AS OF 30th JUNE 2021 DUE TO YET ANOTHER CHANGE IN LEGISLATION FOLLOWING BREXIT, WE RESERVE THE RIGHT NOT TO SEND ORDERS TO CERTAIN COUNTRIES IN THE EU UNDER THE VALUE OF 150 EUROS OR £135.00. WE BELIEVE THE ADDITIONAL DELIVERY AND CLEARANCE COSTS DO NOT MAKE IT BENEFICIAL TO OUR CUSTOMERS. WE WILL ADVISE ONCE THE ORDER IS PLACED AND BEFORE ANY PAYMENT IS TAKEN.
Since Brexit Countries in the EU are now exempt from our UK VAT Tax currently 20% will have the Tax element of the Goods, approximately 19%, deducted from the final amount payable. We do that manual before payment is taken.
PLEASE NOTE: We cannot be held responsible for any Local Tax, Duty or any Fees payable at the delivery destination. Customs rules and their application by Local Customs Officials and Couriers, as their Agents, can be unpredictable and they may well make an import tax or duty demand before releasing your order, this is entirely your responsibility to Pay.
Any goods that are refused and returned to us will not have any Despatch costs refunded to you. We would only refund the value of the Goods less any Returns costs and any associated Fees with the return.
