free postage guide

It's very simple to qualify for free postage. Just complete the following steps.

1. Place over £50 of eligible items in your basket.

2. Proceed to checkout.

3. Make sure your items are being delivered to a UK mainland address.

4. Place your order.

5. Please remember. To qualify for free postage your order must have a stock value of £50 or more when it is posted.. This DOES NOT include, out of stock or pre-ordered items

You can add items to an existing order to bring it over the £50 mark, so long as your order hasn’t been dispatched. This can be done by proceeding through checkout as normal, and the each additional item will be merged into your outstanding order automatically.

postage details

You can calculate your postage cost by using the tables below.

2xCD, 2xLP, etc are counted as 2 separate items.

When buying multiple formats, always count the heaviest format as the first item. For example, if you are buying a 12" single and a 7" single, count the 12" as the first item and the 7" as an additional item.

Box sets, magazines, T-shirts etc are weighed individually and converted to their equivalent weight in CDs. For example a magazine weighing 400g will be charged the same postage as 4x100g CDs.

We aim to keep our postage and packing charges as low as possible at all times. We will always try and find the cheapest method of sending your goods to you. For non-UK customers this may include sending your order in two separate parcels.

Heavyweight LPs have an additional surcharge as shown in the tables below.

Postage times

UK and Northern Ireland: delivery normally takes 1-2 working days.
Western Europe: 3-5 working days.
Eastern Europe: 5-15 working days.
Rest of the world: 5-9 working days.

Please note that these times are approximate, and postage can sometimes take longer, depending on factors beyond our control (severe weather conditions, local delivery problems, and delays at customs for example). If you have not received your parcel within 28 days of your order confirmation email (10 days for UK customers and 6 weeks for France, South America and all African countries), then you should contact us by email: mail@piccadillyrecords.com and we will refund or replace the order as required.
