Delivery Information

Our aim is to send out orders received by 16.00 hrs Mon - Fri the same day. Orders received after that, and at the weekend will be dispatched on the following Monday.

Most UK orders will be sent by Royal Mail 2nd class post - higher value items such as Geiger Counters are sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery service. Glass items are sent 1st class post. Larger items are sent via courier service in the UK - usually Collect Plus, FedEx or UPS, with full tracking information forwarded to the buyer. We also offer a Saturday service (for a Monday delivery) on our high-value items. Just click the Contact Us link below.

High value items going outside the UK will by sent by tracked/signed-for air mail - again tracking details will be provided. We also use couriers for larger items - again full details will be provided.

Shipping costs for non-UK addresses cover standard air mail delivery. High-value items, such as Geiger Counters, will be sent via insured signed/tracking services. Please ask us for a quote if you want your items to be sent via this service.

Please be aware that items sent to non-UK addresses via standard air mail service can sometimes take longer to arrive, due to local Customs & Postal services. (When ordering, please provide FULL address details.)  Where possible, we give an estimated arrival window.

If items get lost in transit we will do our best to find out why this has happened. Finding out this information can take as long as 3 months in the most extreme cases: don't worry - we will replace the lost item well before then!

We take great care when packing items so they arrive safely and we also pride ourselves on being eco-friendly and recycle ‘till the pips squeak… Don’t be surprised if the cardboard packing in your order began life as a pizza box (we try to clean off as much cheese sauce as possible…) We also try to walk to the Post Office - weather permitting of course!

Lastly, if there are any delays when sending out your items, we will let you know. There are times when we are away from the office - in the bunker, or heading for the hills!! -  but we will contact you as soon as is practical.
