We have a single set of rates for world-wide shipping based on the combined weight of the items when packed for shipping - the following charges are the same for anywhere outside the UK:
Up to 200g - FREE
200g - 500g - £1.95
500g - 1,000g - £5.45
1,000g - 1,500g - £8.45
1,500g - 2,000g - £11.95
Most of our diecasts weigh less than 500g with a great number falling into the free shipping bracket. Our very heaviest items are around 1kg.
The service covered by these charges is Royal Mail Airmail not signed for or tracked. If you want tracked shipping please email for a price once you have your items in the basket but before you pay.
A number of items have the shipping cost as part of the listing - we will show cost of shipping on all items very soon.
All items are shipped free in the UK using second class post.
How long does it take?
We ship every working day in the afternoon, that is Monday to Friday. So on working days anything which is bought and paid for by noon UK time will be shipped that day, if it is paid for later it will be shipped on the next working day. This means of course that items bought after noon on Friday will not be shipped until Monday.
Within the UK Royal Mail will deliver our standard parcels within 48 hours of posting.
Outside the UK Royal Mail will get the package to the destination country in 3-5 days. How long it takes to deliver once in the destination country depends on the time it takes to get through Customs and how quickly the local postal service delivers. In practice international shipping takes 1-3 weeks on average. In some countries, notably Russia, South American countries and sometimes USA & France it can take longer.
In the UK f you want a faster service we will ship by First Class for an added cost of 70p.
Outside the UK we can arrange shipping with an international courier. The cost will depend upon the destination country and the weight of the item(s)
