Whether based on overall weight, heaviest item first plus additional items, or based on the value of the goods; one thing is for sure - shipping records has become confusing. That's why we endeavour to keep shipping super simple for everybody...
£3.00 - that’s as much as you’ll ever pay for standard UK shipping, regardless of weight, cost or the number of items!
Yup, whether you take one 12” LP or five, you will only ever pay the same flat-fee. Simple, eh? What’s more, great value doesn’t compromise speed – we send everything first class.
The only time your shipping cost may change is if you choose to add recorded delivery to your shipment for an additional £1.00.
We’re no packing slouches either; check out how we pack a standard order below, and keep scrolling to find out how you can qualify for our upgraded Premium Packaging at no extra cost too:
If your order total £50 and above, or is over 1kg in weight, you qualify for our Premium Packaging at no extra cost!
That's right, we'll take extra special care of your higher-value or heavier stack of wax for no extra fees! With robust corner protection and a dual-layered mailer, it's worth slipping that extra record into your order to take advantage of bomb-proof packaging.
For your reference, 1kg is roughly around three standard LPs, though it varies depending on the product.
Check out how our Premium Packaging differs:
If you want the added peace of mind of recorded delivery, simply select the appropriate option at checkout.
You can insure and protect your UK order for just £1.00 extra and if your order is over £50 we would of course recommend the added security to insure the higher value contents against loss.
As standard we don't offer next day delivery services ("special delivery") or courier services for orders under 2kg as standard first class delivery is usually very quick indeed. But if you have any special requirements these can be arranged - just drop us a message along with your order.
Orders that include in-stock items and either pre-order or back-order items will be shipped once all titles are in.
In order to maintain our really low shipping costs for everyone, we are unable to offer part-shipping and orders are held until all items are in stock. If timing is important for you, we would advise you to place separate orders for in-stock items and, for example, pre-order items. You are welcome to contact us to split the order for you after you have placed it if you wish. Additional shipping charges will apply of course.
Here are some general guidelines on shipping times:
In-stock item: Nearly always ship within one working day, if not the same day (Mon – Fri)
Pre-order item: We usually get pre-order items in 2 – 3 days before release day so we aim to ship them on the day they come in to us. Note that release dates can change or there may be delays with our own suppliers.
Back-order item: Usually ship within one working day once they arrive with us (Mon – Fri), though the lead time on back-orders is highly dependent on our suppliers.
We happily ship vinyl all over the globe! International orders are based on weight, and this is all calculated for you at checkout. Here are some particular notes of guidance for overseas customers:
For orders of £50 and above before shipping costs, it is strongly advised that you select International Signed & Tracked delivery to ensure your package is covered to a higher value against loss. If you choose not to take this option we may not be held responsible for losses, and for certain countries International Signed & Tracked shipping is the only option available.
Orders of £50 and above before shipping costs or over 1kg in weight are shipped at no extra cost with our extra-tough Premium Packaging.
All International orders up to 2kg are sent by First Class shipping via Royal Mail and orders over 2kg are sent with full tracking via a reputable International courier. Orders above 5kg will require a custom shipping quote before the order can be finalised.
The approximate shipping times can be found below. Please note that these are only guidelines:
Europe: 4–7 working days
World Zone 1 (North America): 7 – 14 working days
World Zone 2 (Australia): Approximately 7–20 working days
Any Customs import fees are the sole responsibility of the customer; we have no control whatsoever over any of this.
