SURCHARGE 4th June 2021, 08:47

All orders despatched after 7 July will incur a 5% surcharge.

All of our customers will, by now, be aware of the International Container Crisis and the effect this has had on the cost of sending a container. Our last container was a lot more expensive than usual but it was thought that prices had peaked and would gradually decline. We, therefore, decided to cover the extra cost ourselves. However, this was not to be the case and prices had risen further, from the last year norm of $1,800 to $13,900, when we came to send our present container. Regrettably, we have to pass on a portion of the increased price in the form of a 5% surcharge to be charged on all orders despatched from 7 July. As soon as container prices permit this surcharge will be dropped but it is not clear when this will be at present.
