Courier postage is charged on a sliding scale dependent on country.

All orders (where the preferred method of delivery chosen is courier) will still be processed in date order.

Please note that when we book the courier we will give contact details (e-mail address) so that confirmation will be sent including updates regarding your package and tracking details, We are unable to book a courier without these details. If you do not want us to share this information with the courier please let us know as soon as possible.
