Payment is expected to be with us within 7 days of item ending. Only payment methods accepted are Paypal, Personal Cheque, Postal Order or Cash on Collection :- Direct Bank Transfer NOT Accepted. We are happy to accept payment by cheque but please remember to allow enough time for funds to clear before we post goods; at least 5 working days after receipt. Overseas buyers may also pay by cheque but only in Pounds Sterling drawn on a UK bank. All import taxes and customs duties are the responsibility of the purchaser, and we do not declare false values or mark items as "gift".
We aim to ship as economically as possible. Items over 1Kg for UK delivery will normally be sent by courier, which can take up to 5 working days. If there is any urgency with your order, please ask for an alternative shipping quote.
*Important note for overseas buyers*
The United States Department of Homeland Security is continuing to require increased security measures for items carried on passenger airlines incluging extra vigilant customs checks. As a result, parcels entering the US from the UK, that would normally have been sent via passenger aircraft may be sent by other means, including ships and cargo. Many of my customers are experiencing Air Mail delivery times to the US exceeding 6 weeks, other international countries about 4 weeks. Our current experience show this to apply only to regular Airmail (packages up to 2KG), and heavier items sent by courier are not significantly delayed. This is much slower than we would all like it to be but this is absolutely out of my control. If you have concerns about these delays, please contact me for clarification.
A contact telephone number is often required for UK courier deliveries and is essential for overseas couriers; please supply this at time of purchase if not already included in your address details or there may be a delay in shipping while this is obtained.
Heavy or bulky items going abroad are normally priced on an individual basis, and overseas buyers should confirm shipping costs prior to purchase. Please understand that there is no cheap way of sending goods thousands of miles!
*Please note, UK Shipping Rates apply to Mainland Only;* Courier deliveries for heavier items to the following locations may incur surcharges and we reserve the right to pass on this cost to the purchaser (Items sent by regular postal methods should not be affected) ;- Scilly Isles, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Channel Islands, Scottish Islands, Northern Ireland.
Auction items have shipping calculated assuming a final value of under £41.00. If items sell for over this, we will add extra postage as necessary to cover the insured value;- PLEASE WAIT FOR AN INVOICE BEFORE MAKING PAYMENT.
