We have an established network of National and International freight operators.  The freight operator or courier will be assigned depending on the best delivery quote provided based on the weight of items and delivery location.  If you are ordering from a country outside our listed range, we can contact you with the best quote available. In such an instance you can proceed to checkout without delivery. You can then send us payment via Paypal or call us with your credit card details for delivery separately, once we have confirmed the delivery quote to you. You could  also arrange a courier collection yourself if preferred, please state this when ordering.

Hand Engineering Ltd. has agreed base courier costs, based on size, weight of item and delivery address to most countries within the EU. All costs exclude vat, you will be able to see the final price including vat and delivery before you complete your order.

For any deliveries within countries not listed please contact us for a delivery quotation. We shall provide a delivery quote within 1-2 working days of your enquiry. In this scenario we would advise you to contact us before placing an order so we can confirm the total cost.
