Postage

Postage and secure packaging is kept as low and as reasonable as possible. We keep our postage at a minimum and we only ask for additional postage if the value of your order is particularly high and the combined postage and insurance cost is excessive. We often pay more for postage than is charged to the customer but sometimes this is not the case. Therefore, we have tried to make it as fair as possible for everyone by keeping the cost to the customer static and low for the past few years. Our postage charges are as follows:
UK & Channel Islands: £3.00.
Overseas: £6.00.
If your order is in excess of £40 GBP we will request additional postal insurance which will rarely be more than £7.00 and we will invoice you separately for this

Delivery Times

Providing we receive your order and cleared payment before midday through our web site your goods will be sent within 4 working days. Goods paid for by cheque will not be despatched until the payment has cleared. Please allow up to 5 working days after we receive the payment

VAT and Taxes

All prices quoted are in British & pound sterling; and include VAT at 20%

Damage or Loss

All items purchased from Lorraine Miniatures and The Doll's House Store are made pursuant to a shipment contract.

We do tend to send items or packages over the value of £40 by recorded delivery within the UK and by International Signed For to the rest of the world to ensure that items do not go missing in the post and if they do they can then be tracked and a claim lodged on your behalf.
