We work with a combination of international couriers and postal services to deliver the most efficient and reliable shipping of goods possible. Where postage charges are present, these reflect very closely what it costs us to ship goods. Occasionally however, the shipping of exceptionally sized items or shipping to particularly remote ** locations will incur an additional postage charge. If this is the case, one of our sales team will contact you before dispatch to notify you of any surcharges and arrange payment.
** A Remote Area is defined as a post code or in the absence of post code, a suburb /town name that is difficult to serve.
This occasional passing on of postage costs is the only way to keep our prices low for the largest number of customers worldwide.
