Shipping terms

These postal weights are based on the weight of the package prior to leaving our premises.
Please make allowances for the weight or tubs, bags, packaging etc when estimating this cost for yourself.

We realise that postage/shipping can seem expensive and will always do our best to keep the prices down. If we get a better deal from a courier than advertised below, then we will let you know and refund some money to your payment card or paypal account.

Our aim is to have your order delivered to you within five working days, often less.
If your order is urgent, please inform us, and we will do our best to get it to you sooner.
