Shipping and Handling
PLEASE NOTE we are finding that Royal Mail are taking longer than usual to deliver. This is obviously understandable given the circumstances, so please bear with us. DPD Local (Next Day Delivery) still seems to be operating with no delays.
All UK mainland orders over £60 inc VAT are currently being shipped FREE!! Orders under £60 to UK mainland will be charged £4.50 inc VAT.
UK mainland includes the Isle of Wight, Scottish Highlands and Islands, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and the Isles of Scilly. Please note that delivery can be slightly slower to the postcodes listed below where we are unable to offer the Next Day Delivery Service.
NEXT DAY DELIVERY
£6.95 inc VAT for orders placed before 2pm Monday to Thursday. If you would like a Saturday delivery please call us to check the cost and availability. We despatch Monday to Friday so if you place an order after 2pm on a Friday on a Next Day Delivery Service, we will send out the next working day which means you should expect delivery on the Tuesday.
PLEASE NOTE our standard Next Day Delivery does not cover the following postcodes;
Highlands and Islands - AB36-AB38, AB55-AB56, FK17-FK21, IV, HS, KA27-28, KW, PA20-78, PH19-PH26, PH30-PH50, ZE
Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly - BT, IM, TR21-25
If you require 24 hour delivery please telephone us to find out what the cost would be.
There are some items such as very long clamps, lathes, workbenches, potato forks etc that we cannot ship to every postcode in the UK, or indeed every corner of the globe. If we are unable to deliver, or if there are potential additional costs then we will contact you.
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 (excluding import duties / taxes / fees) and ask if you wish to go ahead with the order.
Lieferung nach Übersee
Bei Bestellungen, die nach Übersee geliefert werden sollen, werden bei der Online-Bestellung keine Versandkosten angezeigt. Wenn die Bestellung bei uns eingeht, wird sie zurückgehalten. Wir ermitteln die Versandkosten, teilen Ihnen die Gesamtkosten (ausgenommen Einfuhrzoelle / Steuern / Gebühren) mit und bitten Sie um Bestätigung, ob Sie mit der Bestellung fortfahren möchten.
Livraison à l'étranger
Lorsque nous recevons votre commande, celle-ci sera mise en attente pour nous permettre de calculer les frais de livraison (droits de douane, taxes et frais d'importation appropriés exclus), puis nous vous demanderons de confirmer votre commande.
Classic Hand Tools frequently receive orders from France, Scandinavia, The USA, Australia, Hong Kong, The Netherlands, Eire & Germany. 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.
Age Restricted Items
Please note that items such as carving knives, axes and alike carry an age restriction of 18+. By placing your order, you are confirming that you are over the age of 18. If your order contains a restricted item we will verify your age before despatching your order. This may involve us contacting you for proof of age.
