Untracked

When shipping overseas, your parcel arrives in your country, it will be passed into your local postal network and be delivered according to their standard delivery procedures. We are unable to guarantee delivery of any untracked items and please note, booking this way is at your own risk.


If ordering in Russia, China, Korea, South America, Mexico, we highly recommend using the recorded mail or courier option only.

All transit time frames are issued by PO and courier services (Royal Mail and your local service combined) as an aimed schedule of delivery and these may differ. Please note, transit times come into effect as soon as shipping has commenced and aren't calculated from the date of purchase.

Unfortunately, we aren't able to provide these charges, nor do we have any control over them, given that customs policies and import duties vary widely around the world.
