We partner with Royal Mail and their agents around the world for the delivery of customer orders. As you can probably imagine, with the combined effects of less staff available and many, many more parcels to deliver, they are currently experiencing delays in all of their services.
This means that we are seeing delivery times of roughly double what we would normally expect, so we would ask that before you call or email about your order please check our Payment & Delivery page for the expected delivery time and if we’re still in that delivery window please continue to wait.
Not having to deal with those calls and emails will help us to concentrate on getting stock levels back to normal and will help us to despatch orders as quickly as we would wish to.

Thanks for your understanding at this difficult time and stay safe.
The UK's exit from the EU
Now that the UK has left the EU, we do not charge UK VAT on deliveries being made outside of the UK. It should be noted, though, that due to current agreements that are in place, customers outside of the UK may be liable for import duties, taxes or other charges before they can take delivery of their order.
These charges (if applicable) may vary from country to country and with the value of the goods being shipped. If you need further information about charges that may be levied in your country, please contact your local Customs Authorities.
Please be aware that any charges that may be levied upon import are the responsibility of the person receiving the goods.
