Delivery prices include postage, packing and insurance irrespective of how large or small your order. We can deliver to both a UK Post Office Box and to a BFPO address. Orders received after 3pm may not be despatched until the following day and therefore may incur an additional day in transit. Quoted transit times are working days and therefore do not include Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays.
We serve customers from all over the world and have previously even despatched orders back to Japan! If you require delivery to an address outside the European Union your order may be subject to local import taxes.
We use the Royal Mail and Parcelforce to effect our delivery service. We will inform you as soon as we can if we become aware that we will be unable to deliver a product within the timescales requested and you may agree an alternative delivery period or you may cancel the order. In no event shall we be liable for any losses you may suffer for any delay in delivery (howsoever caused) and whilst we will try to ensure that goods are delivered within quoted transit times, time for delivery shall not be of the essence.
We will email you to confirm the despatch of your order and will advise you of the company that we have used for delivery as well as the consignment reference number. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU KEEP A RECORD OF YOUR CONSIGNMENT REFERENCE NUMBER. In both cases the orders are scanned on collection from The Japanese Shop, into and out of the Royal Mail / Parcelforce depot, when they are out for delivery and finally when they have been delivered. If you are not home when the driver attempts to deliver, a card will be left for you to either go to the delivery office to collect your order or contact the delivery office and arrange for the redelivery at a date to suit you.
