Approximate postage costs.


Our turnaround to dispatch is currently two working days from receipt of order, please allow for this when ordering. 

Ordering From Irish Republic: Important Please read the notes section lower down this page before ordering.

If, after reading our Postal Prices you are unsure as to the exact postal price for your order then please contact us first on 01733 234333.

Please note new prices as from 2nd October 2023 to the UK and all world zones. Postage to USA now have their own prices, these are separate to  countries. The price increases only apply to some UK services, international prices remain unchanged.

Please note that all EU. countries are now split into 3 zones for postal prices, but in order to simplify postage there is one price for Zones 1&2 (Ireland, Germany, France, Western Europe, and a few in Eastern Europe including Greece) and a separate one for 3 (Norway & Switzerland, please mail us for postal cost as they are slightly more). If you are not sure which Zone you are please ask! Large letter (standard jiffy bag) prices have not changed and remain the same to all areas.

Although a few prices have increased in the UK - these include 1st & 2nd class letters & large letters (1st & 2nd Class Parcels, now up to 2kg remain the same price). To keep prices sensible for medium parcels up to 10kg we will be using 1st/2nd Class Recorded instead of 48Hr Parcels for items up to 60. Special Delivery for a faster service has increased slightly but is still the best service for speed & security of valuable items over 60.00.

PLEASE NOTE:-

Unlike many Companies we do not impose large minimum order values or expensive minimum shipping costs. Our basic picking/packing & postage charge for the UK on small parts in a jiffy bag is just 2.00. Or a boxed wick or other small item requiring a box for protection 3.50 2nd class or 4.25 1st class. Because of a price increase with Royal Mail we have had to increased our basic large letter price to 2.00, which has been held the same for the last 3 years.
Overseas shipping costs from the UK , we usually only charge for shipping, with no picking/packing charge to keep costs to customers down. We can advise individual shipping cost after picking & packing for special orders so that a customer only pays right amount. Prices have generally remained the same to European countries and some services including tracked/signed have fallen slightly. Some prices to Canada & the USA have also come down and we continue to give our customers the best possible shipping service for the a cometivive price.

Shipping to the Republic of Ireland

We are still able to send orders to the Republic of Ireland, but due to difficulties with their standard postal service we are now having to use a courier service to ensure that items arrive safely. This means that we cannot give a postal price at time of ordering because box dimensions and weight are not known until the order is packed and a delivery cost is quoted by the courier. Once an order has been placed by phone (giving an e-mail address) or by e-mail we can then work out a price and inform the customer.


The above International prices are basic costs to Europe, heavy or awkward items and large parcels to Countries such as USA or Australia can cost much more.
Cheques or Postal Orders still accepted in the UK, please make cheques payable to 'Base Camp' & signed/dated. International Cheques or bankers orders not accepted because of charges to clear them.
