Postage Information

Postage Update

We continue to work hard to fulfill, process and post your orders in these unprecedented times with limited staff, and delays being experienced within the postal service. 

Please allow a few more days than those detailed for your items to arrive before contacting us. Your patience and understanding is very much appreciated. 

All time-scales for delivery listed above are approximate and may change at any time without prior consultation. Details can be found directly via the links provided, or please email shop@tankmuseum.org

 

Postage Options

Postage is calculated for you at checkout once you have entered your postal address. You will then be offered a range of postal options and rates from our providers for you based on the combined weight of your items, and the distance they are travelling from our Museum.

Printify Items (Online Exclusive T-shirts, Mugs and Phone Cases) will be delivered to you directly from the printer, separate from other items in your order, but your postage fee covers ALL items in your order.

UK Postage

We use the Royal Mail for our UK customers. You'll be able to choose between First or Second Class, and whether you would like tracked and signed shipping. 

International Postage

The Tank Museum is able to post internationally to all countries across the globe!

Our current Postal Service Providers are Royal Mail, DHL and UPS, depending on the weight of your package. Please see below information on our most used Royal Mail postage options. You can head to the DHL or UPS for their courier information if you would like to research prior to buying.

Missing Packages

Whilst rare, parcels can go missing in the post. We cannot issue replacement orders until 10 working days after dispatch for the UK and 28 days for EU & INT. This is because we cannot claim from Royal Mail until this time. 

If an order does not arrive, we always recommend asking the customer to check at their local post office and confirming their address before contacting us. Please also note that we must be notified within 30 days of when the order should have arrived. After this time we cannot replace any orders free of charge.

 

Delivery of large/heavy Items

The delivery costs on large/heavy items may be revised, as export mailing costs cannot be accurately determined until the point of dispatch.  If additional payment is required you will be contacted to discuss if you wish to proceed with the order and if appropriate, to take the payment.

 

Customs

When ordering goods from The Tank Museum Shop for delivery overseas you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination.

Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information.

Additionally, please note that when ordering from The Tank Museum Shop, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods.

We would like our international customers to be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. Delivery times can be affected due to packages being inspected by customs.
