For orders outside the UK and EU countries listed above, duties and taxes may need to be paid locally, so you may incur additional local charges.

If your are unsure, we recommend you check with your local customs office rules before ordering.

Can I combine postage on multiple product orders?

Our postage is calculated on the optimum balance of fixed cost and weight, so you don’t need to do anything.

If you have any special requirements, want special delivery or courier services, let us know. We promise we’re very approachable!

Is the package insured?

Yes - we will always either replace or refund any lost items - it doesn’t happen often, thankfully! Please be patient…sometimes they take longer than you want to arrive!


We use recyclable paper packaging other than on large and some international orders where that is not allowed. Despite being recyclable, it is robust with several layers and provides good protection for your order. We have tested it…rigorously!
