Overseas Posting
(updated April 2016)

..... ..... ..... ..... .....

As you know we do not charge postage to any address within the UK and this has been our policy ever since we started looking after our bears and sending them to good homes.

We are also pleased to offer competitive posting arrangements for parcels sent outside the UK to the worldwide community. 

Our overseas postage rates are based on the weight of the parcel being sent & for ease of reference the table below indicates the charges that we shall make.  We normally send using the Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed service.

IF YOU ARE ORDERING FROM OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY AND SO LONG AS WE SEND THE PARCEL TO AN ADDRESS THAT IS OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY THEN THE PRICE OF THE BEARS WILL BE LOWER AS WE ARE ABLE TO DEDUCT THE VAT (UK SALES TAX) AT SOURCE.

 The overseas postage rates that we charge are as follows:

UK Europe Worldwide
101 - 250g FREE 6
251 - 500g FREE 6 9
501 - 750g FREE 7 12
751 - 1000g FREE 9 15
1001 - 1250g FREE 10 17
1251 - 1500g FREE 11 18
1501 - 1750g FREE 12 20
1751 - 2000g FREE 13 22

For parcels sent outside the UK that are heavier than 2kg, for parcels that are required more urgently than the usual Airmail timescales and for large parcels where the dimensions are greater than the usual accepted* then we shall need to charge for postage on a bespoke basis and we shall advise you of the actual postage costs in advance of sending the parcel to you in this instance.

* Length, width and depth combined must not be greater than - 90cm
The greatest single dimension must not exceed - 60cm

Postage is added after any VAT deduction has been applied to the transaction & VAT will be added to postage for parcels to Europe

When payment is made by card the conversion from GBP to your currency will be at the rate in effect on the date that the payment is processed by your Bank.

Your order may also be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied once the package reaches your country.  As the "importer", any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you & you also have a responsibility to retain the accompanying paperwork for a certain period.  We would recommend that you contact your local customs office for further guidance.

Customs forms for international packages will list the value of the contents of your order by product type.  Customs authorities require us to state the value of items on the outside of packages. Also, please be aware that international deliveries may be subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.

 

You can always telephone us (24/7) on 0044 1803 752632 - we shall pick up messages on a regular basis if we are not available to take your call straight away.   If we can be of any assistance to you, please feel free to call Sarah or e-mail teddies@kingswearbears.com

We shall look forward to being of service
