Up to 500g =£4.50: 500g to 1 kg = £5.70: 1 kg to 2 kg = £7.40 and up to 10 kg £18.50. Please telephone if you wish to request this service and include the request in “Additional Information”.
We reserve the right to reject an order or request an additional payment if the cost of shipping will be excessively high due to the size of the consignment. You will always be consulted before despatch if this situation arises.
