Shipping And Handling
Shipping is calculated according to the weight of the products you order. Buying two or more products will probably mean less shipping cost per product as our contract with a Courier kicks in, so how about adding a game or a book for a friend as well.
The customer is responsible for entering their Address and Post Code correctly and for arranging collection from the Post Office or the Courier if they are not in when delivery is attempted. We will notify you when items are returned to us as the Post Office or the Courier has been unable to deliver. In this circumstance we will charge you for the Postal element of your order again before we will ship your order back to you. Note that you can choose a separate Delivery Address when you place your order.
All shipping is done using Royal Mail or a Courier. You may select the quality of service you wish.
Courier shipping rates to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and Northern Ireland are now so different from the courier rates to the rest of the mainland UK that Games Lore Ltd are no longer able to fully subsidise these areas and have therefore increased shipping rates to these destinations though they still do not reflect the costs that we may incur in sending orders.
Orders sent to BFPO destinations may not weigh more than 2kg, orders above this weight will say, your order has exceeded the shipping tables defined by the supplier, therefore it is not possible to calculate the shipping cost.
Games Lore Ltd generally despatch orders next business day where products are in stock, it may take up to 10 business days where products are not in stock. If a longer time period is required we will notify you by email and you may then choose to cancel your order or to wait as you prefer.
Not all countries outside the EU are currently loaded within our shipping database, if you wish to order and your country is not represented please let us know and we will be happy to load it for you.
If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait, note you must respond within 7 days to this notice or we will assume that you wish your order to be processed.
Pre-Orders are taken against products before release. The money is debited from your credit card at the time the order is taken and Games Lore Ltd then undertake to supply you the product within 10 days of the published launch date, as shown on this website, or your money will be returned in full.
Where a Pre-Order is mixed with existing products we will generally wait until the Pre-Order arrives and then ship the whole of your order together. If you would like existing products to arrive earlier please make a separate order.
All prices include VAT at 20% as appropriate. Orders for countries outside the EU are processed with no VAT as local Taxes will be applied on arrival. Note that Games Lore Ltd are not liable for local taxes and these remain the responsibility of the customer.
VAT is charged for delivery services, proportionately if some of your order is Zero-Rated and there is no charge if your entire order comprises such items. For those interested this is VAT Notice 700/24 and is found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-notice-70024-postage-and-delivery-charges
