Introduction
Where possible, orders placed by 12.30pm will be packed and posted the same working day. If this is not possible, items will be posted the following working day. In any event all orders will be posted within 5 working days.

We currently take all of our parcels to a local post office, where we always obtain a certificate of posting, which we keep for 16 days. We need this to make a claim should your items be lost or damaged.
Packaging and Delivery Costs
Railwayscenics offer a selection of delivery options, which depend on the total price and total weight of your order, your delivery address and the speed with which you require the goods. These costs are calculated on the shopping cart page of the website, and you do have the option to change your country to get overseas postage rates. They are based on the total weight of your order, so as new items are added to the cart, the price will automatically be adjusted. If you think that the postage costs are excessive, send us an email stating your concerns before placing your order.

Our delivery costs include a fixed charge for packaging and handling, so will be higher than the stamp or postage costs.

International Delivery
Please note due to Royal Mail safety regulations we are unable to post Paints, Aerosols and Thinners etc to overseas customers. Please see Royal Mail Website and the page about Prohibited Goods for more information.

Any orders containing prohibited items will have the items removed and a partial refund will be arranged for the removed items.

The maximum order weight for international parcels is 2kg. If your order is above this weight, we will remove items so the total weight of the order is below this figure and offer a refund of the item removed, or split the packages.

We have now decided to send all international deliveries over £10-00 using a tracked method of delivery. You will be asked to sign for the parcel when it is delivered.
Dispatch Notifications
We will notify you by email when your order has been dispatched. This email is sent to the one used to register on the site.
Expected Delivery Times
By default we use Royal Mail for most of our deliveries. There is an option at the checkout stage for you to alter the service used. We now offer 1st, 2nd and Airmail as the choices for delivery. We also offer recorded or signed for deliveries in both first and second classes. Delivery will be made to the shipping address specified on the original order unless we feel that it should be sent to the Verified PayPal address. Any subsequent change of delivery address will incur additional charges. Should no one be available to receive the order a card should be left for you to arrange collection.

Delivery times are given as a guide only so if the delivery is urgent or required for a specific date then the next day guaranteed delivery service should be used. If requesting next day delivery, please note our cut off time is 10-30am. Any order placed after that time, will be sent the following working day.

Royal Mail First Class aims to deliver within 1-2 working days from dispatch, and Second class is estimated to be delivered within 2-3 days of dispatch. These are only estimates and delivery may be longer depending on the day and time they were posted. Royal Mail Overseas generally delivers within two weeks, although this can be longer at peak times and may be subject to customs and import delays at the destination country.

Any delivery dates given on this website are only an estimate and should be used as a guide. If in any doubt, information on delivery times can be found on the Royal Mail website

Royal Mail should not leave parcels outside, and we have no way of leaving them instructions on a safe place to leave parcels. If we receive any instructions where a parcel should be left, they will be ignored.

Our courier will also make up to two delivery attempts. Additional charges will be made for subsequent delivery attempts which will need to paid for before delivery is attempted. We are getting instructions from more and more customers recently on where a parcel should be left. Our courier service is a signed for service, therefore deliveries cannot be left in a safe location. They may be left with neighbours if a signature can be gotten for the delivery, but this is down to the discretion of the delivery person.

Delivery can only be made to a P.O. Box address if you provide us with your phone number.

Delivery of customer orders is subject to the policies of Railwayscenics elected shipping agent.

In the event that a customer cannot take delivery, it will be the customers responsibility to retrieve the product according to the policies of the shipping agent. If collection of a parcel is not made, that parcel may be returned to us. Additional costs will be incurred to redeliver and these will be passed on to the customer before delivery will be attempted.

Full delivery terms and conditions can be found in our general terms and conditions.
Inspection of Consignment
Please inspect the outer packaging and the contents of all parcels before signing the carriers delivery note. If any part of your order is defective or missing, please reflect this on the carriers note.

Please do not accept delivery without checking the delivery.

Signing as NOT CHECKED will not cover you should an item be damaged or missing. We make insurance claims from the couriers and you should be aware of their policies regarding damage and missing items.
Non Delivery of a parcel
Should you contact us regarding a non delivery of a parcel, we will always advise you to wait a few more days, or to contact the local sorting office to see whether they have the parcel. We will contact your local sorting office also to see whether they have the parcel, and whether a card was left. In the event of not being able to find the parcel, a report is sent to Royal Mail, with a compensation claim. Royal Mail will carry out an investigation and if necessary report their finding to the police. We report all claims we make to Action Fraud and leave it to them to decide on any further action. We will help both Royal Mail and Action Fraud in any way that we can including the release of data if asked. We are in no way suggesting that every non delivered item is fraudulent so please do not take offense from this past text. It is just a policy that we have adopted to ensure that if nothing else we are compensated for our losses.
