Notes on Shipping
* We offer free 1st class postage on all products to the UK, here on our website, and on our eBay and Amazon listings. But realy, there is no such thing as free shipping! It means that the shipping costs are included in the product price.
* Due to an increased number of delayed and lost packages caused by the Covid-19 & Brexit disruption, we are now only sending packages internationally using the Royal Mail's International Tracked service (or equivilent). We try to keep prices to a minimum and where possible are applying the same equivilent discount as our free UK shipping.
* Since July 2021 the European Union's tax rules on imports have changed. VAT is now due on all imported goods to the EU. Unfortunatley we are not able to collect this VAT at the checkout and you may be charged by customs in the destination country instead.
* All of our products are also available on eBay where they can take advantage of eBay's Glogal Shipping Program. All international shipping and customs costs and requirements are automatically taken care of by the platform.
* Many of our products are also available to be fulfilled from Amazon Prime warehouses in the UK, Europe, USA, Canada and Australia. Please search for "Battle Plan Harmonica Accessories" on your local Amazon site.
* We prefer and reccomend that our internationl customers make purchases from one of our retail partners or global market place facilitators where possible.
