Postage & Packing – Inc International Postage
We charge for P&P using our standard flat rate. The charge for P&P does increase depending on the size and weight of each additional item added to your basket. Most of our items are classed as ‘Small Shipping’, however, larger building kits, rolling stock and locomotives are classed as ‘Medium Shipping’ and ‘Large Shipping’ which will increase the price. Please check your total balance in your basket at the time of your checkout.
Orders will be dispatched as soon as cleared funds are in our account. For customers who have a “Back Ordered” Item please see our Back Order Details Page for more information
Our standard P&P rates for the UK are assigned to the weight and/or size of each individual item and are clearly displayed at the checkout stage. A standard base rate minimum cost of £3.00 is in place, with additional items adding to the cost. UK customers should allow 30 Days for parcels to arrive from the date of ordering.
For International Postage (outside of the UK) The P&P rates are similar to our UK system with the Small Medium and Large items, however our Standard International Flat Rate is more than the UK Flat rate to cover the costs of international shipping. A standard minimum base rate of £10.00 is in place with additional items adding to the cost. Notes: Where possible All international parcels are tracked. International customers should allow 60 days for parcels to arrive from the date of ordering.
Should we need to increase or reduce the cost of postage then we will contact the customer prior to dispatching items.
Wherever possible, we always strive to dispatch orders on the same day if ordered before 3pm. Should orders arrive later than 3pm then we will aim to dispatch the following day. All orders are dispatched by Second Class delivery with exceptional items, such as expensive items or where specifically requested, dispatched by First Class recorded delivery.
Where ever possible we try and use recyclable and eco friendly packaging. With larger orders that require a box the infill packing will where possible be reused packing from our suppliers, this could include paper, bubble wrap and foam.
