Buyer to pay all postage costs, I calculate my postage prices by charging the EXACT Royal Mail price for the packed weight of the item and I then add a small amount for the substantial and high quality packaging materials which are necessary to protect the integrity of the fragile items I sell. Insurance up to a value of £20.00 is included in the standard postage rates. Postage discounts will be given for multiple purchases selling within three days of each other but please note that packages with a content value of over £40 will require enhanced insurance, the cost of which will depend on the value of the item/s. Prompt payment items will be despatched within one working day of payment receipt. Late payments will have to be fitted in where possible as prompt payments have to take priority and I can only cope with a certain amount of packing in one day. Breakable items are always packed in a strong cardboard box with plenty of bubblewrap and other packaging. The package is secured with strong brown sticky tape and clearly marked FRAGILE on all sides.100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEED.
