Delivery

Delivery Charges

All orders are subject to a delivery charge. The correct charges will be automatically calculated via our shopping basket ordering system and are based on the total weight of your order, your location and our normal method of despatch. However, The Historic Flying Clothing Company reserves the right to surcharge any orders that are of extreme weight outside the pre-computed weight tables loaded into the website or that require higher levels of insurance. Potential customers can always check the cost of basic postage within the checkout system before payment is made.  Simply add the desired item to your shopping basket, click on ‘items in basket’  and select your delivery location. The appropriate charge will then be displayed.

Orders with a total value of £20 or under and weighing less than 2kg will usually be sent by Royal Mail 1st class post within the UK (as a letter, large letter, small or medium parcel) or via standard 'Small Parcel' airmail to overseas destinations. A certificate of posting will be obtained.

Orders with a value between £20 and  £50 and weighing less than 2kg will usually be sent by Royal Mail 1st class 'Signed For' post within the UK (as a letter, large letter, small or medium parcel) or via standard 'Small Parcel' airmail to overseas destinations.

Orders with a value in excess of £50 and/or weighing more than 2kg will usually be sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery, Insured Parcel Post, 'International Signed & Tracked' Airmail, 'International Signed' Airmail, International Parcel Post, FedEx, UPS or DHL.  

All orders paid for through PayPal must be sent via a delivery service that obtains a signature as proof of delivery.  We will endeavour to select the most appropriate service available but advise that the customer should satisfy themselves as to the method of despatch and level of insurance required. Please contact us if you are in any doubt.

Insurance

Although we offer a worldwide export scheme and trust and rely on the various delivery systems used to work properly, it must be understood that items are sent entirely at the customer's own risk. We will pack the items carefully to prevent damage, and obtain all relevant despatch documents etc, but in the rare event of a parcel being lost in transit we will not be liable for such a loss but we will always provide assistance to try and retrieve lost items as swiftly as possible.
Items are sent with a basic level of insurance. 

  • 1st class and 'small parcel' airmail items are automatically insured up to £20. 
  • Special Delivery,  'International Signed' and 'International Signed and Tracked'  items are usually insured up to £250. 
  • International Parcel Force items are normally insured up to £100 only. Higher insurance levels are available but will incur additional charges to those automatically calculated on the website. Once over £200 these charges rise steeply. 
  • FedEx, UPS and DHL have basic insurance of £50 but this can be increased up to £2500.

Please note that some countries have lower insurance limits than others and in some cases it may not be possible to fully insure goods purchased. 

Additional insurance, up to £2500 is available in some circumstances. Please contact us for a quote if this is required. Extra insurance will be charged at cost. Certain fragile items such as clocks,china and glazed documents cannot normally be covered by insurance and are sent entirely at the customer's own risk.
