Over 30kgs? - For details of carriage charges on heavy deliveries (bulk orders, lathes, workbenches etc) please phone the team on + 44 (0) 1473 784 983, or email on for a quotation.


Orders to be delivered overseas will not display a carriage charge when placing an order online. When we receive the order it will go on hold, a delivery cost will be worked out and we will then contact you with the total cost and ask if you wish to go ahead with the order.

Classic Hand Tools frequently receive orders from France, Scandinavia, The USA, Australia, Hong Kong, The Netherlands, Eire & Italy. Our customers consider our shipping costs to be most reasonable.

Eire and the Channel Islands will be treated in the same way as overseas deliveries. We will place the order on hold and contact you with details of the total cost including shipping. We do not make a profit on shipping charges hence we want to ensure you receive the right charge depending on your order. In most instances this does not slow things down.

Euro Rate - please note the Euro price we list on the site is for your guidance only. We sell in British pounds (£) and the exchange rate is decided by your card provider not us. We also accept bank transfers, please contact us for more details, + 44 (0) 1473 784 983 or email

VAT - non EU countries will have the VAT deducted from their invoice and this will be confirmed prior to dispatch.
