Customs and Import Charges:

Any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country; the recipient of the parcel must pay for these charges.

Unfortunately, we do not have any control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary from country to country.

To avoid any surprises at charges you were not expecting, you might want to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order.

Other Information

Once your order has been dispatched we are unable to change a residential delivery address. Please allow an extra working day for Standard deliveries over UK Bank Holidays

Worldwide Delivery Service

For deliveries outside the UK, the estimated delivery time is 3-14 working days, depending on your location. However, please note that international orders can sometimes be delayed by customs.
