YOUR ADDRESS DETAILS
Please ensure that the address supplied at checkout is your correct, current address and is formatted in accordance with the postal regulations of your country. If paying by PayPal, please double check that your PayPal shipping address is also current and correct.
I cannot accept responsibility or refund for lost or delayed packages due to incorrect address information.
TRACKING YOUR ORDER
As soon as your order has shipped, you'll receive an email notification to let you know. If you paid for tracked shipping, your tracking number will be included in this email.
If you don't receive a shipping notification email (or you've accidentally deleted it!), please get in touch I'll re-send the tracking number to you.
I ship in the UK using Royal Mail first class post. To keep postage costs to a minimum, I do not currently use a tracked/signed for service. Should you require a signed for/tracked service, please contact me prior to ordering.
UK first class post should arrive within one to two working days after posting but delays can occur at busy times, especially to more rural/remote locations. Please contact me if your item has not arrived after five working days (one week) following notification of dispatch (not the date of your order).
During checkout you can choose either International Standard shipping or International Tracked. Both options ship via Royal Mail Air Mail. International Standard service is not tracked and is therefore cheaper. International Tracked service provides tracking for your package throughout its journey but this option is more costly. Please note that International Tracked merely provides tracking for your package and does not guarantee a quicker delivery time or a specific delivery date.
Most international orders arrive within around 2 weeks. However, please bear in mind that international orders can take up to 4 weeks for delivery, depending on location and other factors outside of my control (such as busy periods, bad weather, Customs clearance, etc). During very busy times, this can be as long as 6 weeks so please allow for this time period when ordering. I cannot consider a package to be lost in the post until the 6 week delivery period has passed (from the date of dispatch of your order, not of your order date).
According to the information on Royal Mail’s website, delivery to Europe is within 3-5 working days and to the rest of the world within 5-7 working days of posting. This timescale refers to the time for the package to ARRIVE in the country of destination and not subsequent Customs clearance and onward transmission by local postal services, which can take much longer.
Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee a delivery date. Although Royal Mail will dispatch your package to the appropriate country on the first available flight, delivery standards in other countries do vary. Also packages can be held up in Customs in the country of arrival for several days. This is completely beyond my control and please do bear this in mind if you need your item for a specific date.
CUSTOMS AND IMPORT CHARGES
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Please note that each country charges different customs fees, taxes and charges on goods coming into the country. These fees are charged to you by your country/government and they are not additional shipping charges made by me.
Please be aware of such fees before committing to a purchase. Such fees and taxes are not included in my prices and are the sole responsibility of the buyer.
