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.

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

Delivery Schedule

Once your payment is cleared we will send your tools right away. UK delivery is usually 48 hours whilst USA delivery is usually within 7 days.

Tax Charges

VALUE ADDED TAX - All prices quoted include VAT at 20%. For countries who do not have to pay this lovely tax an amendment will be made to accommodate this plus any extra shipping costs.
