Shipping to non-UK delivery addresses
We are happy to quote shipping costs for orders from outside UK - just complete
the order form and Submit it and we will advise you of the total cost (items
+ carriage) once we receive acceptable quotations from the shipping companies.
Any orders to be sent to non-EC destinations will be shipped exclusive of UK
VAT. Also please note that you may be liable for IMPORT DUTY and SALES
TAX at the point of import to your country. This may vary depending on the
declared value of the items purchased, so please check with your local
customs office concerning this potential extra cost.
Shipping charges (non-UK)
We have started to list the weights of each product so you can estimate the weight
of your entire order. All items are weighed NETT of any packing required for export
shipping. So, please add 250 g to the item weight(s) to allow for the necessary
Please be aware of certain things: 1) For order weights up to a total of 1.75
kg (or 2 kg including the 250 g packing allowance), we recommend International
Signed For Delivery which is an EXTRA COST INSURED AIRMAIL service, at a reasonable
2) If the total weight of your order exceeds 2 kg (including packing),
then shipping costs to non-UK destinations may be reduced if we can ship as a
number of separate consignments (all of which must be less than the 2 kg limit).
Otherwise, the shipping cost WILL be expensive as there is a 2 kg weight limit
if sending AirMail at Small Packet Rate. However, we will advise the shipping
charges in this instance.
3) If your total order weight is over 2 kg, then it is likely to be too
expensive to ship to you as we would need to ship as one single consignment
using the ParcelForce Euro 48 service (which does not have a 2 kg weight
limit. But unless the order is well over GBP 100 value, the shipping quotation
is most likely to be too expensive.
4) For VERY HEAVY ITEMS (such as loudspeakers), we tend to ship by pallet
service, as this is the most cost effective. We use DFDS and they ship to most
of Europe via truck. We can insure your order reasonably cheaply. Single parcels,
may be sent instead by Euro 48 service at reasonable rates.

website and then select 'Price a delivery')
You can also email us for
a shipping quotation. Let us know which products you want and we will quote you
an overall price which includes shipping and optional goods in transit insurance.
A door-to-door service can also be arranged. (Note: All weights shown on our website
are for the individually packed products and this is exclusive of any packaging
required for shipping).
