Regular policy is below, special Christmas considerations are here.
I try to keep items in stock. Note that I no longer make a daily dispatch. Dispatches will be Monday to Friday, two or three times per week, look for the 'next dispatch' beside the 'Add to cart' button.
I almost always dispatch within one working day Mon - Fri, and usually the same day for orders placed before lunch (Mon - Fri). For UK I use Royal Mail first class which is usually next-day delivery. Note that items over 61cm/24" are outsize for first class and so I would normally use Parcelforce 48. For Europe and the rest of the world, please see below.
During December, Parcelforce drop their 'same day collection' service and so larger items (wheels and drum carders) can only be dispatched the day after I receive the order.
Postage is added and combined automatically when you click 'Add to cart'. In an ideal world, I would charge postage at cost, but for convenience with e-ordering I use the following table.
|Total cost of items||Postage||Service|
|0 - £5.30||£1.50||first class|
|£5.30 - £42||£3.30||first class|
|£42 - £275||£3.90||first class if possible|
|over £275||£12||first class if possible|
|All small parcels||optional +£5||Special Delivery: 24hr + tracking|
|Wheels, drum carders & large parcels||Parcelforce Express 48hr|
|Wheels, drum carders & large parcels||optional +£5||Parcelforce Express 24hr|

Europe and the rest of the world
With apologies to the rest of the world, I have reluctantly had to stop posting anything overseas.
If you're outside the UK, please don't order, I'll have to return your money.
Unfortunately I'm unable to send larger parcels such as wheels or drum carders to the Channel Islands because my carrier treats Channel Islands as an international destination.
I have been registered for vat but as from April 2012 I am no longer registered. Therefore there is no VAT in the prices that you see and there is none to pay.
