Shipping and Postage
Postage Rates to UK Europe
UK postage is split into two zones, Zone 1 covers England, Wales and lowland Scotland. Zone 2 covers Northern Ireland and the Highlands / Isles. Zone 2 includes all addresses with postcodes begining AB, BT, DD, FK, GY, HS, IM, IV, JE, KW, KW, PA, PH, ZE. We offer free shipping within the UK for any orders of more than £300.00 (before VAT)
For mainland Europe we have a standard rate, based on order value. Unfortunately we are not able to offer free shipping for these orders. Note that postage to the Channel Isles is treated as mainland Europe.
Standard Delivery Rates
Postage charged depends on the order value, note that the value below are excluding VAT which will be charged at the standard rate.
Note that Standard Delivery cannot be used for liquids, aerosols, resins, gel coats or other restricted items, these must be sent using UK Courier or collected in person and we are unable to ship these goods outside the UK.
UK Special Delivery
Used for goods we are unable to ship via Standard Delivery, available on all orders where you would prefer Courier Delivery.
Delivery Outside EU
We supply to major gliding countries outside of the EU, including Australia, New Zealand and North America. However shipping costs vary widely, so the on-line shop does not try and calculate shipping charges. We ask you to pay a deposit (currently £30.00 + VAT if applicable) and we will refund the difference once we know the actual shipping cost (including packaging). If your address is outside the UK or Western Europe you should be presented with this option at checkout.
Unfortunately Gel Coat and other materials such as resins, hardneners, paints and adhesives (as well as some other items) are classifed as "hazerdous materials" and cannot be sent outside the UK without using special couriers which are not economical. Therefore we can only supply these materials for collection or delivery within the UK.
