Our shipping rates are based on the size and packed weight of each item, so it includes any packaging. We have contracts with major couriers and do ship Worldwide, so you can offer products to more people, plus we ship to BFPO service postcodes across the world. We aim to dispatch all orders within 72 hours, but during busier periods of the year this may take a little longer. At these busier times, Christmas for example we ask that you purchase early to avoid disappointment.
Shipping within Mainland UK and British Forces Postcodes
Every item on our site has a Delivery Code, a letter from A to M. This letter indicates the shipping price of the items, all you have to do is reference it against the charts below to see the price.
Postage Band Postage Price A, B £1.99 C, D, E, F £2.99 G, H £4.39 I, J £6.33 K, L, M £7.99
So its easy to work out the delivery for one item, but what if you want more than one item, how is that calculated?
If more than one item has been ordered for the same address, shipping will be charged at the highest banded item in your basket, plus 55% of any additional items prospective shipping band.
Example: You are ordering 3 items, all going together to a UK address.
Item 1 is postage band A, item 2 is postage Band B and item 3 is postage band C. The highest postage band is charged at full price, so thats item 3, price band C of £2.99. Items 1 and 2 will therefore be charged a 55% of the normal postage cost, so thats 55% of A which is £1.09, and 55% of band B which is also £1.09.
So thats £2.99 + £1.09+ £1.09 = £5.17
UK Delivery Addresses - Capped £9.85
Northern Ireland Addresses - Capped £16.45
Eire & Central Europe Countries Delivery Addresses - Capped £18.65
Lets say for example that you order 3 really big heavy items, the shipping would get silly quickly, so we cap the shipping on multiple items at £9.85 for UK, £16.45 for Northern Ireland and £18.65 for Eire & Central Europe countries. That means you will never be charged more than the capped delivery charge even if you order more that 20 items to the same address.
(Note that where items need to be ordered in multiples, e.g. figures where multiples of 16 have to be ordered, the 'quantity' ordered for delivery charge purposes is taken to be the actual quantity ordered divided by the mandatory multiple, so in this example ordering 32 is actually only counted as 2 items).
