Shipping And Handling
All costs including packaging overhead.
1) UK: two options: Courier – Royal Mail ‘Signed For’ (we can actually send such package by Courier depending on the number of items and weight of the package).
2) Rest of the World: two options: Courier (recommended, see the note below) – Airmail
Witherby Publishing Group Ltd strongly recommends that you use the courier option for delivery overseas as, in our experience, airmail is no longer providing an adequate service. If you choose not to take this recommendation we reserve the right to decline a refund or replacement in the event of shipping loss.
