Delivery Postage Bands

Every item on our site has a letter Delivery Code. This letter indicates the shipping price of each item, all you have to do is reference it against the charts below to see the shipping cost.  The band relates to the packed weight of each product.  (See the bottom of the page for the band weights.)

On a few fragile or bulky lighter items we have increased the postage band letter to cover sending the item with our courier, or so we can put more packaging around it.  You may have to pay a slightly higher postage cost, but the item can be packaged with more padding and will get to you in one piece.

Priority & Courier Upgrades

The majority of our packages go with Royal Mail First Class so cannot be tracked and are not a guaranteed service.  However when you would like to track your order, or you need it as quickly as possible then we offer two postage upgrade services for you to use
