Railwayscenics have now added a courier delivery service to our delivery and shipping options. This is an up to five working days service and not an overnight next day delivery.
There are a few restrictions on what the courier will carry, and these will be pointed out on the product information pages. Any orders that include prohibited items will be amended and the prohibited item will be removed and a refund issued.
When you select a courier delivery, we use a signed for service, and a signature will be required. Because of this, please do not ask to have the parcel left somewhere. It will not happen.
Insurance is also offered on this service so all goods are fully covered whilst in transit. Please check your order on arrival and if the package is damaged in any way please let us and the courier know. We are unable to make a claim unless you have mentioned to the courier that the parcel was damaged, and you will not be covered for damaged or missing items.
We do hope that you find the pricing satisfactory. As the business grows we will negotiate new prices with the couriers to ensure that you are always getting the best deal possible.
Our courier charges extra for remote deliveries which includes the following postcode areas IM, HS and ZE. We do not pass on these exra costs.
|Less than 2kg||£ 3.95|
|2 to 5kg||£ 5.95|
|5 to 10kg||£ 7.95|
|10 to 15kg||£ 9.95|
|Signed for||£ 1.00|
|Insurance and Packaging Costs||£ 3.00|
Railwayscenics appreciate that waiting for deliveries can be an inconvenience, so with this in mind we try to make every parcel we send out letterbox friendly. This means we try to keep packages as thin as possible so they fit through most letterboxes. It is not always possible as some of our larger boxes will not fit.
We do not penalise you because of where you live! Whether its Northern Ireland, Shetland, Isle of Man or Inverness. If you have a UK postcode you will pay the same delivery costs as a customer who lives in Manchester. Please note that delivery time to most outreach locations is an additional two working days.
We have updated all the Royal Mail module prices, and they do seem to be fair to everyone. If you have any complaints over the pricing of the delivery please contact us, but we are restricted to what we are charged.
We have used the table below as a base for our Royal Mail delivery costs. These are the standard costs taken from the Royal Mail website.

The compensation offered by Royal Mail has also been lowered. With standard first and second class postage, this has been reduced to only £20-00. We have decided that any order over this figure will be sent by Royal Mail signed for. This offers greater compensation should an item go missing, and will also be protected under the PayPal protection scheme as the delivery method is tracked. This benefits both me as a business and you as a customer.
We then add on a small cost to cover the printing, label and packaging costs. This cost barely covers the actual cost of the materials used, which is why we try to recycle as much packaging as we can.
Please do not blame us for the shortcomings of the current postal system, we do not set Royal Mails tariffs but do have to work within them!
