Carriage

The UK standard charge is £20GBP and is normally next day delivery. DHL carriage costs for deliveries outside the UK will depend upon the destination and the weight of the shipment.

Any consignment going outside the UK which contains 2,2,4 trimethylpentane, Ethanol ~40% or Tetrachloroethylene must travel by our carrier, since these are classified as dangerous goods for air travel and few carriers will accept them.
