Please let us know in writing at time of order if you wish your shipment insured. Products may ship from more than one location. Freight charges are based on weight AND volume. Freight charges for credit card orders are estimated; they do not necessarily represent the carrier's published rates and may include additional charges levied by the merchant. Freight charges for open accounts are prepaid and added to each shipment. Within the United Kingdom items are shipped on a 2-day delivery. Freight charges include Packaging. Goods to Europe are shipped via Vermason’s carrier unless otherwise notified by the customer. Shipments to all other countries need to be arranged by the customer.
