International Delivery Services
Additional taxes, fees or levies may apply according to local legislation. Recipients of deliveries made outside the UK may have to pay import duty or formal customs entry fees. Any customs or import duties are charged once the goods reach the destination country and these charges are your responsibility and must be paid by the recipient. Unfortunately we have no control over these charges and cannot tell you what the cost would be as customs policies and import duties vary from country to country.
In addition some countries have import restrictions on certain products or materials. You are responsible for determining whether there are any restrictions on delivery of our products to your selected destination. You can contact your local customs office for assistance regarding these matters.
Delivery may be delayed by local customs because of this but unfortunately this is out of our control.
We will begin our missing parcels procedure if your Order fails to arrive within 10 days (UK only) and 20 days (International) of despatch and you notify us in writing. We will investigate your claim and if we are satisfied that the non arrival of the Product(s) was attributable to us then a refund will be credited to the credit/debit card which was used to place the Order. Please note that we may refuse to make future deliveries to addresses that are considered to be insecure. In this event you will be contacted by our service team and asked to provide an alternative delivery location for future orders.
