Carriage

Within the UK, the standard charge is £17.50GBP. Carriage costs for deliveries outside the UK will depend upon the destination and the weight of the shipment.

We are able to accomodate customers who wish to use their own carrier, however an administration fee may be charged. 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.
