Frequently Asked Questions
Below is a list of frequently asked questions with regards to our website. If you cannot find an answer to your question, then please contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Q. Can you send parts to me in an overseas country?
A. No problem at all! We are very experienced in sending to other countries and have happy customers right across the world, see our Testimonials page. Our website is built specially to make international shipping easy - just add the parts you would like to your basket and our website will show you the shipping options and prices. You can make payment with Paypal (using your account or any Debit / Credit card) or Bank Transfer. For full details, please click here.
In rare cases, if your order is too large or heavy for an automatic quote, you can choose to save the order and then we will send you a manual shipping quote.
Please note: Customers living outside the EEC (European Economic Community) may have import fees and/or taxes added to their deliveries by you country's customs office when entering the destination country - this is why we remove UK sales tax of 20% for all orders that are sent to outside the EEC.
We do not have any control over these fees and are not legally responsible for them. It is the responsibility of the customer to research into any fees that may be charged and pay these on arrival. You will be able to find information about this on your country's government website, but there is a useful calculator that can help to estimate import fees here: Import Fee Calculator. In some cases import charges may take weeks or months to be billed for, but usually after 2-3 weeks it is safe to assume that your order has not been subjected to any import fees. As always, if you would like any help with looking into this please don't hesitate to contact us.
