A few of our items are very large or very heavy or very difficult to pack & post so they are not included in our free delivery offer sorry, but they are very clearly marked & priced to included p&p.
Prices are separated in the basket and at checkout and increase as each item is entered if it takes the total package into the next size / weight bracket.
Shipping prices include all packing materials etc and dependent on a mixture of Size / Cost / Weight items will go by Royal Mail, Recorded Delivery or Courier. We will use our judgement for which one is best.
UK mainland means all of the UK which is not on an island or accessed only by a toll bridge or is classed by the courier companies we use as the Scottish Highlands.
So UK mainland excludes: All UK islands, Scottish Highlands, Northern Ireland etc.
Some common sense is needed however, as extra costs are only incurred if we need to send via courier so if you need something that can be sent in the post then there will be no extra. If we can find an alternate courier who can deliver to you for no extra and you are happy for an extra day or two in shipping then we will email options.

Damage Or Loss In Transit -
We have a 48hr period to make claims with our courier so claims for damage or loss in transit must be made within this period by telephone or email with photos of the item and the box initially for speed in sufficient time for the shipper and insurers to be notified within that claim time.
Shipping Outside The UK Mainland -
The software for this current site doesn't automatically calculate global shipping costs.
We will be working on adding some standard costs into shipping section but the but the best way to order is to create an order, choose manual credit card as a payment method, and the order will be received here.
We'll then email an invoice and you can choose at that point to commit to the order.
Some items can't be shipped to specific countries so please check with your own authorities before ordering. Pressurised canisters, products containing seeds or plant extracts and some foodstuffs are among the products that often cause issues.
Batteries cannot be shipped via post or courier. Items usually sold containing batteries for LED or solar powered lights will have them removed before shipping, unfortunately no discount is given for this small loss and we will advise before shipping if the batteries are expensive or hard to purchase.
Australia & other islands often have the strictest controls and U.S.A. currently has very slow checking procedures, especially on posted mail through the USPS system. although courier packages get through faster.
