Your postage and packing is calculated automatically on line when you check out. The website calculates these charges by taking into consideration the size and weight of the items in your order and where the order is being sent (as specified by your delivery address) It will also give you several 'shipping' options which allows you to choose the best service for your area to suit your own requirements (for example 3-5 working days by Royal Mail second class or next day by courier) On rare occasions there may be difficulties calculating the postage and packing rates automatically and the website will allow us to personally check your order details and quote the postage and packing rates individually for you.
Goods ordered with credit/debit cards or postal orders are processed immediately and despatched at different speeds depending on the shipping choice you have selected. In most cases, for all items in stock (ie not pre-orders or advance orders) you will receive an order sent to a UK address within 7 days. This will be much quicker if you select our priority postal services such as 'Special Delivery', 'Next Day Courier' or if you upgrade to 'Royal Mail First Class'. Most orders sent outside the UK are delivered in 3-8 days to Europe and 7-14 days outside Europe, depending on the shipping method selected.
If you make an advance order or pre-order for products not yet released they will be despatched as soon as they come into stock and we will inform you of any changes or updates to the anticipated release/despatch date.
Please note we cannot be held responsible for cancellations or delays to release dates of products imposed by the manufacturers. All titles will be despatched to you within 12 hours of receiving them from the manufacturer.
In most cases, the website will state if an item is 'out of stock' and give you an option to be notified (via your online account and email) when it comes back into stock, or place an order for the next available.
On very rare occasions there may be a delay in a product being updated on the site and it could be incorrectly listed as 'in stock'. In these cases your whole order will be held for a reasonable time until stock becomes available or we may send out any available items immediately with the remaining out of stock item(s) to follow. You will be notified via email and your online account of the full despatch status of your order and any ammendments or changes from the moment your order is placed to the point of despatch. If you have ordered by cheque and we are unable to fulfil part of your order, a credit note will be sent for the outstanding balance. To claim credit against a future order, the note must be returned (not a copy).
All our orders are despatched with a certificate of posting and are packed securely and carefully to avoid damage in transit. If a parcel does arrive damaged or incomplete, this must be reported within three days of receipt. The easiest way to report any query with your order is to click on the 'email us about this order' link directly from your online account alternatively you can use the contact us page.
Please keep any packaging as the carrier in the event of a claim may request this. Larger packets are sent with extra insurance but in the rare event of a missing parcel we will endeavour to trace it or claim compensation on your behalf. If goods arrive damaged, it may be possible for us to sort out a problem without the need to return goods, incurring postage costs and any possible further damage to items. Please do not return any goods unless you have contacted us and been advised to do so.

Additional import charges and duties may be levied by Customs & Excise upon delivery of your parcel (according to the published laws imposed by the authorities of your Country).
