UK & International Delivery Rates

We don’t base our delivery rates on a fixed price for each book in your order.  Instead, we consider an order’s likely weight, its value and its packaging size to work out a price.  In most cases, this means the delivery cost for each book will drop if you have two or more books in your basket.

Here are a few tips to get the best from our delivery service:

  • When you’re ready to check out, choose your country from the drop-down list on the Shopping Basket page.  You’ll then be able to see the delivery choices open to you.
  • For security and packing reasons, five books is our limit for a single order to some countries.  If you have more than five in your basket, you’ll see a message asking you to remove the extra book(s).  You then need to choose what to delete from your order before you can carry on with the checkout process.
  • If you want to buy more than five books, get in touch and we’ll let you know if we can arrange this.  If we can, we’ll get you a delivery price.
  • Likewise, please contact us if you want a price for a next day or weekend delivery.
  • In our price tables we give a cost for each book in a multiple book order.  Note, this is only a rough guide based on a packed weight of 0.9kg a book.  Practically, as book weights vary, 5kg may equal, for example, as few as three books or as many as seven.
  • To help you minimise your delivery cost, each book’s page gives its packed weight, and the basket gives a running total weight for an order. These guides allow you to adjust the books in your basket to get the best weight / price ratio.
  • For everyone’s peace of mind, we send all orders using ‘signed for’ services.  So please remember that someone will need to be on hand to sign (contact free) for your order when it arrives.

As well as the UK, we deliver to 30 other countries.  To check if we send books to your country, and see our rates, click on one of the following regional links:

European Union

We deliver to 22 countries in the EU, which we’ve split into eight price tiers:

TIER 1: France, Germany and the Netherlands

TIER 2: Austria and Belgium

TIER 3: Ireland, Spain and Sweden

TIER 4: Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Poland and Portugal

TIER 5: Slovakia and Slovenia

TIER 6: Finland and Luxembourg

TIER 7: Estonia, Greece and Lithuania

TIER 8: Latvia and Romania

Orders usually arrive in 5 - 8 working days and we do not charge UK VAT (tax) on delivery to EU countries.  However, local taxes and / or duty plus courier handling fees could be due in your country and you may need to pay these prior to delivery.

Note: since the UK left the EU, courier costs have soared due to the extra paperwork now needed to send goods to EU countries.  But it’s still possible to make huge delivery savings if orders are for two or more books, as this cuts the cost for each kilo sent.  This is certainly something to think about when placing an order.
