Please be aware of the following conditions regarding postage and packing.
For heavier books (i.e. over 500gm packaged weight), I offer a cheaper P&P service, which will make use of Royal Mail Second Class rates and use less expensive or recycled packaging materials, where appropriate. I will still ensure that books are packed well and I will continue to offer First Class P&P and will let the buyer choose which service they require. I always obtain a proof of posting receipt from the post office.
Please also be aware of the following additional terms and conditions regarding postage and insurance :-
I will only post to the United Kingdom.
Single purchases. At my discretion and at my expense I may send single items via the Royal Mail Recorded Signed For service. I will inform the buyer before posting the item if this is the case.
Multiple purchases. I will combine postage for multiple purchases. However, two or more items posted as one package will ONLY be sent via the Royal Mail Recorded Signed For service. I will bear the additional cost for this service. Please wait for my invoice which will contain revised cost options for combined postage.
Please ask if you have any questions regarding postage and packing for this item.
