Please note that Royal Mail is currently experiencing Christmas-like demand but operating with reduced hours and severely reduced staff. You may experience longer delivery times than usual due to this, please note that Royal Mail delivery times are out of our control. Durimg normal times they advise 1st class shipping can take up go 10 working days We, we have been told during the pandemic it may take up to 20 working days. We recommend upgrading your shipping to a signed for method available at checkout for £1.49  for peace of mind in these unprecedented times, but please note although Express Shipping is still their fastest method and tracked every step of the way, Royal Mail is no longer able to guarantee next day delivery for any items. Normal delivery estimates provided by Royal Mail for 1st class post is 1 to 10 working days, during the pandemic this has been advised that in some circumstances can take up to 20 working days. If you are ordering a present or something time sensitive, make sure to use Express Shipping or at least upgrade to signed for so you can claim against any losses.

Dispatch time means time it takes for an order to reach the post office while delivery estimates are how long it takes Royal Mail to deliver once they receive the item. 

We usually use Royal Mail but please note lager items such as shields, axes and swords may be shipped using a different courier at our discretion due to size and weight.

We offer free shipping on all UK orders, using Royal Mail 1st class post. This is not a tracked service and may take 1 to 10 working days normally.

(If notification of shipment is received after 3PM, it will arrive 1 day later due to last post collection times at the post office). Saturday delivery not included for this shipping method. Items shipped on a Friday will arrive on the next business day, Monday. If you need Saturday delivery, contact us prior to purchasing.

TAXES & DUTIES 
It is possible that you may be subject to import duties, custom charges or taxes. The customer, you, are responsible for the payment of any such import costs. SkullVikings has no control over such charges, cannot predict their amount and will not cover them. By purchasing from our site you accept responsibility for covering any taxes and duties you may be charged.

DELIVERY FAILURE, FAULTY ADDRESSES & P.O. BOXES 
You, the customer, are responsible for covering any re-shipping charges if the order is returned to us due to faulty addresses, failure of client to collect their order when a delivery is missed, inability of the courier to deliver to P.O. boxes or Military bases. Shipping is non-refundable, only the value of the items and not the delivery will be returned. Please note that incorrect addresses or those written using special characters or Military Base addresses may cause a delay to the dispatch, cancellation of your order or returning of the item to us.

RE-POSTING RETURNED ORDERS 
SkullVikings is not responsible for the cost of re-shipping an order which has been returned to us by no fault of our own or by a failure of the customer to pick up the parcel or give the correct initial address. We are happy to reship the items, however the cost of postage is the buyer's responsibility to cover again.

Wrong address supplied 
You as a buyer are responsible for providing us with your correct address. Should you provide us with the wrong address, through no fault of our own and contact us after the item has been shipped to change the address, you will not be entitled to a refund or re-shipping unless the item is returned to us. If you have provided us with the correct address but we shipped it to the wrong one, we will ship a replacement out. It's only fair.

Cancellations

Cancellations of orders can only be made before shipping for in stock items. Cancellations of made to order items can only be made before the item is being made or on its way to us. Get in touch as soon as possible for cancelling made to order items, usually no more than 24h after the order is placed. 

These are our best estimates by our postal service and can be subject to delays out of our control so don't be caught off guard, place your order now to avoid disappointment under a tracked option for peace of mind. If you're in a rush to receive your order or it is time sensitive, we recommend using the Special Delivery option. Please note that UK Bank Holidays can affect dispatch and delivery times due to Royal Mail not operating during them.
