What are the UK delivery charges for orders from the Online Shop?
We offer free delivery to mainland England, Wales, and Southern Scotland (anywhere south of Stirling). We do not offer free delivery to locations north of Stirling in Scotland, Northern Ireland, or any British Islands off the mainland; for example, the Isle of Man, Isle of White and Channel Islands. If you live in one of the areas where we do not offer free delivery, please contact us for a delivery quote before purchasing the item.  Delivery will be made by our specialised antique furniture delivery service, or in some cases we will use a courier service for distant deliveries. Delivery times are usually 1-4 weeks depending on location; we aim to deliver the majority of items within 2 weeks. All items are professionally packaged and fully insured in transit, therefore, we can assure you, your items will be securely protected in transit and arrive safely with you. Once you have purchased an item, we will contact you be email and/or telephone and provide you with a provisional delivery date, in order for you to confirm if it is suitable for you.  Once you have confirmed you can accept delivery on the provisional delivery date, we will book the delivery in with our shippers and it then becomes a confirmed delivery date. We will also provide you with our shippers’ contact details, in case you need to contact the driver on the day of delivery.  It’s helpful if you can provide us with both the landline and mobile telephone number, in case the driver cannot reach you on one of the numbers on the day of delivery, they can contact you on your alternative number. In order to be able to offer you free delivery, it is based on a 1 man delivery only.  For any large items that require 2 people to lift the item, we ask that you are available at the time of delivery to be able to give our shipper a lift off the van and into your house with the item.  If you are not able to lift items yourself, we ask that you have someone on hand at the time of delivery to assist our shipper with lifting the item.

How much does it cost to ship items internationally?
The cost of shipping items internationally varies depending on the size of the item, the delivery address and the mode of transport used (e.g. road, sea or air).  It also depends on whether you want the item crating (e.g. a wooden crate building to hold the item) or whether you are happy to have the item "export wrapped" (e.g. the item is wrapped in foam and cardboard).  If the item is air freighted, the item must be crated.  If the item is sea freighted, both packing options are available to you.  Crating costs more than export wrapping.

How long does it take to ship items internationally?
Shipping timescales will depend on whether the item is air or sea freighted. Sending items via air freight is much quicker, but it generally costs more to ship items this way.

If I'm an international customer and I want to return the item, what happens?
