Shipping addresses & phone numbers OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS READ THIS

IMPORTANT;- We are still having to chase people for shipping addresses before a quote for shipping can be provided. Likewise, many customers are not providing a contact telephone number to be added to the shipping label. If YOUR country uses GLS for deliveries, a contact telephone number IS ESSENTIAL. THIS IS NOT AN OPTION IT IS MANDATORY

Please please please....ALWAYS include your shipping address with ALL pricing/shipping/ordering enquiries. By not giving your address you are wasting your time & ours. Without a shipping address we cannot work out the inland or airmail costs to complete the quote. Please help us to help you.

Due to increasing problems with GLS failing to deliver. All European country customers are required to supply a contact telephone number to be added to the delivery address label THIS IS MANDATORY, NOT AN OPTION. Failure to do so may result in your package being returned to the UK as undeliverable. It may then be destroyed by Royal Mail rather than returned to KFS (as has recently happened)

b) All telephone & written/printed orders are destroyed by incineration after 30 days. This period is allowed in case of loss, delay, damage, query or complaint only. Any such written/printed orders are retained under lock & key for that period. All credit/debit card 3 digit security codes are obliterated as soon as the order is processed & passed.

Exports. (UK Customs & the Brexit effect)

AT LAST. Some clarity on the new export rules for 1 January 2021 onwards have been published.

1) From 1st January, all KFS goods sent out of the UK both to the EU & the rest of the world will be zero rated for vat. For example EU countries will now be treated the same as non EU countries & will not pay UK vat. They 'may' however face their own import duty & fees when the goods arrive in the destination country.

2) MINIMUM ORDER VALUE FROM Jan 1st. However, the additional workload of increased documentation, paperwork & export recording/reporting means we will be applying a minimum order value of £50.00GBP (@ list prices & not including shipping) for ALL OVERSEAS orders (EU & Non EU) from January 1st. (See Ordering & Payments for examples)

3) The maximum export order value allowed by post is £873.00GBP per package
