Delivery & Returns

The UK exited the EU on the 1st of January. 

As of 03/03/2021: DUTY AND TAX payments will be MADE AT CHECKOUT.  No further charges will be incurred.

Please reference our :  BREXIT UPDATES 

Please be advised that shipments to Europe are subject to delays due to a backlog of shipments within customs in Europe. These delays are due to an increased volume of parcels and changes to how shipments are cleared through customs since Brexit.

Germany & Spain are currently experiencing severe delays through customs, so delivery will take longer than usual.
