UK Pricing
Although within the United Kingdom, the sheepskin products market is not particularly competitive, we make it easy for UK customers to access our unbeatable combination of low prices and outstanding quality. Our UK prices include insured Air Mail postage and all UK Customs charges, plus we actually bill in UK pounds to help avoid you incurring foreign exchange charges on your credit card.
 
Price comparisons
Beware when comparing prices. Some internet retailers quote lower prices but can add up to 50% or even more for Air Mail postage at the checkout, or in some cases even after you have handed over your credit card details! Our UK pound prices include Air Mail postage direct to your door. Also few other overseas websites include UK Customs charges in their prices, which otherwise can add up to a third to the overall cost!
 
All UK Customs charges included!!
We include all UK Customs charges in our UK pound prices. We are one of very few companies in New Zealand offering pre-payment of UK import VAT. The VAT pre-payment scheme is based on a Memoranda of Understanding between HM Customs and New Zealand Post.
 
Pre-payment of VAT is used in conjunction with a direct entry postal service so that packages are delivered in the UK as if they were regular domestic postal items. We apply a First Class permit paid label on each package so that on arrival into the UK, they can quickly enter the Royal Mail PacketPost system for delivery a day or two later.
 
As well as avoiding excessive UK Customs delays which have often been a problem in the past, it saves the usual £8.00 or £13.50 Customs clearance fees and removes the uncertainty of how much Customs charge is going to be applied.
 
For official information relating to the Pre-payment of UK import VAT, go to www.gov.uk/government/organisations/hm-revenue-customs and search for "A guide for international post users" and refer to section 3.4.
 
For items over the duty charging threshold of around £135 plus VAT, we can't pre-pay the VAT or duty. However, as we still include all UK Customs charges in our prices, we reimburse all Customs charges that will be collected by ParcelForce.
 
For further information, see UK Customs information on our main sheepskins website.
 
Currency Selection
For delivery to UK addresses, you must select British pounds. See the currency link at very top of our main website. Alternatively, if you follow this link, it will select pounds for you: sheepskins UK.
 
To save you from having to re-select the currency each time, the last selected currency is stored as a cookie on your PC, it just contains the 3 digit currency code.
 
Minimum order
The minimum order value for orders going to the UK is just 28 pounds. Some low value items are not economical to send alone, we have set the minimum order to allow us to keep our prices extremely low whilst still include international Air Mail postage and UK import VAT.
 
Delivery times
Outside of the Christmas posting period, typical delivery times to the UK are just 4 to 8 working days (Mon-Fri). Delighted customers sometimes even report receiving orders to the UK in as little as 3 working days!
 
Contacting Us
Due to the time difference between New Zealand and the UK (11 to 13 hours depending on the time of year), we find email to be the most efficient method of communication. We are extremely dedicated and even out of office hours and at weekends you will often receive a quick response.
