Postage to Russia/Ukraine +
Hello! We recently increased our
postage price for small parcels ( up to 2 kg) from £24 to £53 to provide more
secure postage service and protect ourselves from "missing" parcels.
There is a lack of postal services between the UK and Russia /post Soviet time countries. All items more than 2 kg can be
send by Parcelforce Global Priority service with a full insurance and a
tracking number. This costs £58 + depending on the insurance value.
The jackets up to 2 kg will be sent by
Parcelforce with a tracking number and insurance with a price of £53+. We can
send this type of parcel cheaper (£24+ ) by the Royal mail International Signed
for service that will include insurance and a tracking number UP TO the Russian
/ Ukrainian BORDER only. We will not be responsible for any updates or lost
parcels in this case as they are not fully trackable and if you choose this
type of service then you cannot come back to us with any claims.
However from our experience even this
fully traceable service cannot guarantee a fast delivery as this depends on the
Russian custom /political situation/events in your country, holiday time
and weather conditions.
Sorry to all my Russian customers but
the delivery and postal prices are out of my control.
Please contact me if you have any
questions about this or your postal service preference. Good luck with your
