  Packing

Each piece requires careful packing, commonly using bubble wrap and card rings to protect vulnerable features like a pendulum, clock hands or delicate shells and we may even pack and post a fragile clock pendulum separately to ensure it is not damaged. We will have previously weighed the design, measured its dimensions and calculated a postage category price which includes packing. The most fragile and awkward designs will be boxed and smaller designs such as earrings and pendants may be posted in padded bags or in small carton boxes.

 

  Post

We use Royal Mail/Parcelforce as our courier and their full range of delivery services; Standard, Confirmed, Guaranteed and International. Our postage categories are calculated using Royal Mail Standard 2nd Class service which will not require a delivery to be signed for unless it is greater than 61cm x 46cm x 46cm and delivered by Parcelforce. If you are unable to  receive a delivery in person, or arrange it to be left elsewhere, both Royal Mail and Parcelforce will leave a note confirming the whereabouts of your delivery; usually your local Post Office.

 

For fragile and/or outsized and awkward designs (Category D) requiring special packing and delivery, we will discuss options with you. Equally, if you prefer to use a more secure or faster service, for example, 1st Class, Royal Mail Confirmed (registered mail) or Royal Mail Guaranteed (special express delivery), contact us to discuss price options.

 

  Insurance

Royal Mail offers inclusive insurance; £20 for Categories A1 – A4, B1 and B2.  Similarly, Parcelforce, Categories A3, B3 and C, have £100 inclusive insurance. Other insurance covers are available; contact us for options.
