NOTE: current US Post Office restrictions

Parcels over 1.05m long (ie. my kites) can not be mailed to the USA using air parcel post or any other Royal Mail service, meaning we can only deliver to the US via couriers such as FedEx.

Courier charges are based on "volumetric weight." Since we don't have standardized packaging, a two-step payment process is used.
Customers pay for kites with an initial installment; when they are finished and packed the balance is paid with a second installment.
Thanks to PayPal this procedure is easy and quick.

Important delivery information:
On delivery look over the parcel before you sign for it as "RECIEVED IN GOOD CONDITION". If this is signed when the goods are damaged we can't make a claim or get any compensation. If there's obvious damage to the contents don't open the parcel. Have it returned. Damage needs to be officially inspected prior to a claim.

EU countries

Delivery charges include VAT by law
For countries accepting parcels 1.5m in length
Shipping options:
1. Default delivery: FedEx World Express on a per-order basis - fully trackable - charges based on volumetric weight include full insurance by default - requires on-line payment in two installments*
2. Alternative: Royal Mail Parcelforce 48 (5 days to EU, tracking, and cheapest insurance charges) - same on-line payment as above

*With the volumetric weight system the shipping charge for an express delivery will not be known until the order is completed and packed, at which time the second (final) installment will be invoiced. Orders are accepted after receipt of an initial installment, usually the value of the order. Thanks to Paypal, this is easy and quick.

Please include the telephone number when sending the delivery address
