All Countries not listed above:
We do not have a fixed price for countries other than those listed above, as parcels have to be weighed and measured for a price to be calculated. When placing your order, instead of completing checkout, your basket will be saved and submitted to us for a postage quote, which will then be updated in your online shopping basket. You will then be able to login to your account and complete checkout.

Despatch
All orders are carefully packed in our separate Mail Order dispatch department but in the rare event if you have reason to believe that damage may have occurred in transit, we must be notified as soon as practicable after the damage is discovered. If telephoning ask for despatch, this will expedite any enquiry re your order. If the damage is obvious on receipt of the package please mark the carriers docket as damaged and try to retain the packing material as on occasion the carriers will wish to see this.
