Policies and FAQ's

Shipping
All items are sent standard second class via royal mail and proof of posting is kept for a year after posting. Small parcels automatically come with a tracking number as standard via royal mail and this can be given among request from the customer. Unfortunately large letter size post does not come with a tracking number so once its left it cannot be tracked, if you do however wish to have your parcel sent tracked or signed for this can also be done among request but the customer will be required to pay the extra for this service. If for some reason post is lost in transit I can open a claim with royal mail 10 working days after the item has been posted. Then we will be able to discuss if a refund or a replacement is most suitable for the situation.
