Shipping & Returns

We only use the following delivery services:

Royal Mail Signed (first and second class)
Royal Mail Standard (first and second class)
Royal Mail International Tracked (formerly Airsure™)
Royal Mail International Signed (formerly International Signed For™)
Royal Mail International Standard (formerly Airmail)
Royal Mail International Economy (formerly Surface mail)

With the "Standard" and "Economy" options, you will receive a confirmation email when the items have been posted, but you won't receive any reference number. With the "Signed" and "Tracked" options, you will receive a confirmation email when the items have been posted with a reference number that you can use on the Royal Mail website.

Shipping costs and available options are dependent on the total weight and delivery destination. Once you have placed your order, you can't change the delivery destination, so please be sure to enter the delivery details correctly. The shipping costs have been updated in line with Royal Mail's 23rd March 2020 prices. (Updated periodically.)

Items that are in stock will be despatched the next working day, (although they may be dispatched sooner if the order is processed while the Post Office is still open).

The package Tare weight is 170g, except for "Into the Lion's Den" which has slightly lighter Tare weight. (Weights are approximate.) The maximum shipping weight is 2kg. Orders over that weight will be shipped in multiple packages.

"Into the Lion's Den" is shipped separately from all other books as it's shipped directly from my brother Stephen Talbot rather than from myself. (You can use the inscription service for that book.)

Shipping to UK Addresses

The options for shipment to UK addresses are: Royal Mail 1st Class Signed For/Standard (ships normally within 1 to 3 working days) or Royal Mail 2nd Class Signed For/Standard (ships normally within 3 to 5 working days).

Shipping to Overseas Addresses

The options for shipment to addresses outside the UK are: Royal Mail International Tracked (39 destinations), Royal Mail International Signed (190 destinations), Royal Mail International Standard or Royal Mail International Economy.

Economy option ships normally within 2 to 12 weeks). Other international options ship normally within 3 to 5 working days.

Please be aware that the International Economy (Surface) option can sometimes take up to 4 months (rather than 12 weeks) for certain countries (possibly due to delays in Customs). Experience has shown this to be the case for shipments to Brazil and Australia, but it may also occur with other destinations.

Prices vary according to the shipment address. There are three pricing zones: Europe, World Zone 1 and World Zone 2. The Tracked option has four zones where Europe is split into two zones: EU and non-EU.

Please make yourself aware of any import taxes and regulations for the shipping destination. Books are designated as "printed papers".
