If my order is split, what happens about shipping charges?
Occasionally we will be out of stock of a particular item or we will not have the quantities that you would like. You can still place an order but there may be a delay in shipping these items. Items that are in stock will be sent immediately. The rest of your order will be sent as the items become available.
If your order contains items that are being shipped from our fulfillment centers in the UK and the US and your order will therefore be dispatched in more than one package.

Will I be charged Customs & Import Duties?
Shipments to and from destinations outside the USA may be subject to import duties and taxes. These charges are determined by local laws. Unfortunately, we have no control over what these charges may be or whether they are applied at all as customs policies and import duties vary significantly from country to country.
These are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country and must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.
