We normally post 1st class Royal Mail. Costs are based on weight with an average book (1.5 kilograms when wrapped) at £4.50, a saving on normal Royal Mail costs. Lighter or heavier items are costed on a pro-rata basis. It is not a tracked service as this is very expensive but all items are insured at our expense



We post everywhere by Royal Mail Airmail – we have a special contract which enables us to post airmail at a cheaper rate than surface mail. Costs are based on weight and are very reasonable – and the pro rata cost decreases with increasing weight. Airmail reaches most destinations in a week or two.

It is not a tracked service as this is very expensive but all items are insured at our expense.
