Delivery - Coast by Post
Starting at only £2.50 our standard delivery charges are based on final order weight. Although many of our products are heavy, our maximum delivery & packing fee is £4.95 for UK orders (many items have free delivery).
We aim to pack & despatch your order within 24 hours of receipt and for the items to arrive with UK customers within 7 working days (typically 2-4 days) subject to stock availability. During busy periods we will endeavour to inform you if there are any delays. Please note a signature may be required on delivery.
UK Next Day Delivery
We are also able to offer a UK Next Day trackable service for urgent orders to mainland England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (Northern Ireland and some highland postcodes may take 2 days).
This option is available from £6.95 - £9.95 on orders placed Monday to Friday no later than 12 midday from receipt of payment.
Selecting Next Day delivery after this time will mean your package will be dispatched the following day for delivery the next working day. Please be aware that weekend deliveries are not possible with our Next Day service, therefore if selected on a Friday your package will be delivered on Monday (or the next working day in the case of a bank holiday).
International Delivery (including Channel Islands)
Starting at only £3.70 our delivery charges are based on final order weight.
We dispatch many orders overseas, use reputable courier services and ensure items are well packed.
International deliveries on average take between 3-8 days to arrive, but some shipments can take up to 2 weeks and possibly longer depending on their end destination. We are therefore unable to guarantee a specific arrival/delivery date for overseas deliveries.
The prices shown on our website include 20% UK VAT (value added tax). For delivery to destinations outside of the EU this Tax will be removed and you may be liable to the import duties and taxes of your own country.
Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
You will be liable for all duties and levies payable at any foreign port as a result of delivery of goods outside of the UK. You shall not be entitled to cancel your order beyond acceptance of our terms on the basis of unforeseen duties or levies. Should the goods be impounded for any reason by the Authorities of the country to which sent, payment of those duties are the recipients’ responsibilities.
All gifts sent through our International delivery services are insured for loss or damage in transit, unfortunately carriage costs are not, so if for whatever reason the goods are not accepted by the recipient, not collected when/where required or returned to sender then these costs are entirely at your own risk.
We are not responsible for the reliability or otherwise of overseas postal/courier services.
All transactions are made in British Pounds Sterling and the exchange rate is calculated by the payment card provider at time of transaction.
Please note that any refunds to overseas orders will be done in British Pounds Sterling for the exact amount charged by us in Pounds Sterling.
Buy the Sea cannot be held responsible for any variations in exchange rates and consequent loss of currency as a result of any such changes. We strongly recommend our customers to consider this before placing and confirming any overseas orders.
When parcels travel we are charged not only for the weight of the parcel but also for the amount of space the parcel takes up. In order to charge correctly for the weight and size of an item, carriers have developed an international volume to weight calculation.
For some parcel sizes and destinations we may need to contact you for additional delivery charges. Where this happens you will be given the opportunity to accept or decline your order.
Please contact us email@example.com if you want to check timing or costs of delivery; we'll be very happy to help.
