When were these Delivery policies last updated?

  • Our Delivery policies were updated in February 2021.

My shipping options only show UK. But don’t you ship worldwide? 

  • Yes we do. Simply click on ‘Proceed To Checkout’ and select the country you wish to ship to in the ‘Shipping details’ section (below ‘Billing details’).

As an International or EU customer, are there any other charges?

  • May be. Any Customs, Excise Duties, VAT (Taxes) and/or Customs Clearance Fees are NOT included in the item price or shipping charges. EU Countries seem to have different policies in place, so you may or may not be charged extra.
  • As a result of Brexit, EU countries are responding differently; they seem to have different policies in place, which makes their charging unpredictable.
  • Some of our customers are not being charged anything, whereas some have been charged between 10 and 28 Euros.
