We use airmail or Airsure for most deliveries outside the UK, deliveries of small parcels up to 2kg. Airsure is trackable and requires a signature on receipt. For all large overseas deliveries over 1.5kg ( and up to 10kg ) we use UPS, this again is trackable and requires a signature. They may not be the cheapest but they are reliable.The prices are calculated at the checkout stage of your order depending on weight and destination.
Smaller items may be sent with parcel companiesor Airsure who will attempt delivery on a weekday without notice. Failed deliveries will be carded so that the customer has another opportunity to accept delivery or the parcel may be taken to a post office collection centre for you to sign and collect when convenient.
