Books are insured by us and usually sent by Royal Mail (1st class Recorded Delivery inland, or Airmail Printed Paper Recorded Delivery overseas). When occasionally we send a large group of books together these will usually be sent by 48-hour recorded parcel (Parcelforce) inland, and by Standard International Parcel (i.e. by Air) overseas. However, other arrangements can easily be made to suit customers' wishes. [We do, for example, have a Fedex account.] The cost of carriage will be made up of the actual cost of postage (including the Recorded Delivery cost - at present 77p inland and £4.90 overseas), insurance at 0.25% inland and 0.5% overseas, and a very small amount for packing and handling.
