IMPORTANT PLEASE READ - Due to a high workload of TONGS ordered, booked metal casting courses and sign commissions - any orders (for these three items) placed between NOW and CHRISTMAS inclusive will be on hold until the new year

You can still checkout, and we will process orders for all other items as usual dependent upon stock levels. We will resume orders for Tongs, courses and signs in the new year. Thank You!

Apologies for any inconvenience caused

At Artisan Foundry we strive for a fair delivery pricing structure and to this end it is worked out by the gross weight of the order including the packaging material and your location. Please bear in mind that Highlands and Islands, European destinations and other international rates are set by the providers of the services and we can do nothing to alter them.
Therefore we have a separate carriage table for these areas.

The process on the website is automated by a system called the "Table Rate" which works out the total weight of the order plus the packing materials, then selects the appropriate band or rate from the table below prior to the customer checking out. This means you know exactly how much you will be paying for postage and carriage prior to committing to buy.
Please remember that the Carriage/Postage charge also includes a charge for the packing as well as packaging materials.

Notes
All charges are subject to change without prior notice.


Under 2kg is usually dispatched with Royal Mail
Anything over 2kg is sent via tracked courier service with insurance and we provide you with the tracking data.
When orders are dispatched we have no control over the service providers but we will endeavour to chase up late or missing packages.
Both services are 3 to 5 days but the majority of packages can arrive sooner than anticipated. Adverse weather conditions and peak shopping periods can affect delivery times.
To save on delivery we do allow private collection which can be selected at checkout. A mutual date and time is then arranged.
Packages over 182kg are usually sent via pallet * and delivery will need to be arranged in advance. Please phone for details.
Some of our packages such as superwool may be under 25kgs in actual weight but due to the volumetric size carriers charge a premium.
