(At the moment we are no longer shipping to Europe but are working hard to get this sorted. We expect to be shipping to Europe again by the end of May.)
We ship daily to customers across mainland Europe. Since Brexit 1st Jan 2021, we are unable to ship casings to Europe however we are working on this and hope in the near future that we are able to ship small quantities of casings to Europe as normal. Please bare with us whilst we navigate the hurdles that Brexit has presented us with.
Following Brexit you will no longer be charged UK tax at checkout but you may still be charged customs duty upon delivery of your order. Should decide not to pay this customs charge and the item is returned we will refund your order but not the postage costs. To see what you may be charged check your local goverment website.
For parcels below 1kg being shipped to Europe, it is £11.50. If you have any questions about the weight of your order, contact us and we will be happy to help.
The rates published below are the typical shipping rates for parcels over 1kg.
Republic of Ireland: £27.50

For most European destinations the delivery time is 5-7 days working days. Please not there may be delays on shipments as the we and couriers get used to the new Brexit laws.
We can ship to the Far East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand but please contact us for a shipping quote.
We can also ship to the USA and Canada however we are only able to ship non-food stuffs at this time. We are working on this and further down the line we hope to make shipping foodstuffs available.
If goods are not delivered in the specified time we are not liable for any trader's contracts. It is up to the buyer to ensure they order with an ample amount of time and take into account human error, busy periods and road disruption.
