The Shipping prices listed are for the UK Mainland only.
Free delivery is on orders over £30 to UK mainland only (and any other areas where we can match the cost) and on economy service.
Prices are separated in the basket and at checkout and increase as each item is entered if it takes the total package into the next size / weight bracket.
Shipping prices include all packing materials etc and depending on a mixture of Size / Cost / Weight items will go by Royal Mail, Recorded Delivery or Courier.
We will use our best judgement for which to use.
Packages upto 2kg in weight and 60x40x30cm can ship by royal mail.
UK mainland means all of the UK which is not on an island or accessed only by a toll bridge or is classed by the courier companies we use as the scottish highlands.
So UK mainland excludes: All UK islands, Scottish Highlands, Northern Ireland etc.
Some common sense is needed however, as extra costs are only incurred if we need to send via courier so if you need something that can be sent in the post then there will be no extra charge.
If we can find an alternate courier who can deliver to you for no extra and you are happy for an extra day or two in shipping then we will email with options.
If you get charged shipping and should qualify for free, we will refund you.
If you don't get charged but should have then we will email you.
Our despatch days are Monday to Friday.
If we are closed or cannot post out for what ever reason we will always state so on this page.
We aim to despatch your order within 24 Hours (when & if possable), most items are desptched the same day or next. Please note t&c's do apply (see below)
Our normal despatch days are Monday to Friday only.
An email will be sent when your order is despatched so if it's not received within 2-4 working days after that email then you should contact us.

While we will do our utmost to keep to to promised delivery dates, they are to be treated as estimates only.
We cannot be held liable for any delay in delivery or non-delivery or for any consequential loss.
If a customer has not been able to accept delivery when a courier or Royal Mail has attempted delivery then usually a card will be left.
Collection from the sorting office, depot or redelivery will be the customers responsibility to organise.
If a customer has not collected a parcel from a courier or Royal Mail following an attempted delivery and the parcel is subsequently returned to us then all costs incurred in such a redelivery shall be chargeable to the customer. Currently there is no charges to us for returned post, returned courier parcels cost £8.
If following return of a parcel to us, the customer wishes redelivery then the costs of carriage shall be borne by the customer.
Damage Or Loss In Transit -
We have a 48hr period to make claims with our courier so claims for damage or loss in transit must be made within this period by telephone or email initially for speed in sufficient time for the shipper and insurers to be notified within that claim time.
Shipping Outside The UK Mainland -
The software for this current site doesn't automatically calculate global shipping costs.
We will be working on adding some standard costs into shipping section but the but the best way to order is to create an order and we will then email an invoice and you can choose at that point to commit to the order or have an instant refund.
Some items can't be shipped to specific countries so please check with your own authorities before ordering. Pressurised canisters, products containing seeds or plant extracts and some foodstuffs are among the products that often cause issues.
Australia & other islands often have the strictest controls and U.S.A. currently has very slow checking procedures, especially on posted mail through the USPS system. although courier packages get through faster.
