Postage:

  • We offer free UK domestic postage as per recent ebay guidelines. We continue to recommend the use of tracked services to ensure your piece of mind, as we are unable to provide refunds or tracking on books sent via an unrecorded 1st or 2nd class service within the UK or standard airmail service on items sent abroad. 
  • Our recommended services for overseas postage are International Signed for, Airsure (Royal Mail) or Parcelforce (UK couriers): These are all tracked and fully insured. 
  • We will ensure that all items sold are packed and distributed securely and professionally. We will respond to any comments or queries as quickly as possible. When possible we always combine postage on multiple items purchased. Prices charged will depend on combined weight and size after being securely packed. Items up to 5kg and a maximum size of 90cms (hxwxd) and no longer than 60cms can be sent via Royal Mail using the Printed Paper service. Items larger and heavier than this have to be sent via courier service.
  • We offer a multi-ship service and can hold items until larger consignments can be sent. This helps reduce postage costs greatly, especially for overseas buyers. If buying more than one item, please allow us to invoice you before paying as we will combine the items to give you the cheapest Royal Mail or international service price.
  • We endeavour to send all packages at or under cost. 

 




 

  • We are more than happy to offer a full money back refund if the goods you have purchased are not as described. Customer satisfaction is our priority.
