Batteries are classed as Hazardous goods when shipping, due to many postal providers such as Royal Mail not allowing batteries into the postal network - failure to comply with postal restrictions can result in prosecution from the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority).
What this means for you..
It simply means that any order containing a battery will have to be sent using an appropriate method; usually an express method. Postage will be calculated at checkout.
It also means that we are unable to ship your order on a Saturday as we don't have a collection. If your order contains a battery we can only ship Monday to Friday - our cut off time for same day dispatch will remain at 2PM.
We are currently unable to ship any orders containing batteries outside of the EU
Please see the table break down for all domestic and EU locations we can currently ship orders containing batteries to
