Most items in our stock include free UK packaging and delivery and some also have free international packing and shipping too. Please check the item listing for the postage pricing details. The cost of shipping comes up at the checkout and is dependent upon the ship to address and country. International items are usually sent by Royal Mail Tracked or Signed service but, this is limited to a packaged size being less than 90 cm Length+Breadth+Height and a packaged weight of 2 kg. Items exceeding this will be sent via a secure, tracked courier service. Possibly by UPS, DHL, Fedex, or Parcelforce, whichever is the most secure and economical.
We pack well in lots of bubble wrap, with packing chips in appropriately sized strong cardboard cartons, and post promptly. We normally post items either on the same day or within one working day of payment being received. The exception to this may be on a Friday afternoon, and bank holidays. Please read our eBay feedback for Jockjen and buy with confidence.

Couriers generally charge by volumetric weight, which is calculated by multiplying the length x height x width in centimetres and dividing the answer by 5,000, the calculated figure is compared to the actual weight and the higher of the two is the rate charged. eg, a bulky porcelain vase may only weigh 1 kg but, when safely and securely packaged for transit the volumetric weight may be 5 kg - which is the rate charged by the courier.
