Carriage and Shipping

International retail/stockist shipping fees are calculated using Fed Ex software which compares location, size and weight. The current rates are updated as of March 2018, and will be reviewed under the next Fed Ex rates update.

International distributors/wholesalers will have shipping charges applied after their order is packed due to higher volume orders, we will email an updated invoice with shipping fees when the items are ready for despatch, until this stage in the process shipping charges will show as zero on the invoice.

Shipping timescales will vary depending on location, we currently use Fed Ex who list their approximate timescales on their website, alternatively please contact us with your location and we can check for you.

If you would prefer to instruct alternative couriers please contact us after placing your order and we can cancel out any shipping charges.

Upon despatch, tracking numbers are emailed automatically on all shipments once logged on FedEx, however, please contact us should you not receive a tracking reference and we can check for you.

Fed Ex will attempt delivery on separate working days up to a maximum of three, if a delivery cannot be made after 3 unsuccessful attempts we will contact you. If no response is received and an order is returned to us by Fed Ex due to unsuccessful delivery attempts the shipping fees will still be charged to your account in addition to any further shipping fees for re-delivery.

Customs and Importation Charges

Our shipping prices cover collection and transit of the items, any additional importation charges and tax will be the responsibility of the importing company, please check customs and excise charges for your location before placing an order if you are unsure.
