The world business of Road and Air freight has become very complex as different organisations attempt to revalue their carbon footprints and deal with the increasing taxation levies imposed by various governments.
Lancaster Armoury Ltd has looked at the various companies attempting to deal with this new era and decided that the British company “Parcel Force” offers the best shipping options for our customers.
Like all the shipping agents, Parcel Force carriage fees vary from country to country and weight against parcel size, with varying import taxes, fuel surcharges and volumetric weight scales, their costs charts are not easy to calculate. But they can be seen at --- www.parcelforce.com
International deliveries: These will continue to be quoted to our international customers as they enquire and we will always include the shipping cost estimates when we confirm your order.
UK customers: To calculate your shipping costs simply total the combined weights of your order (then add 10% for packing and tape).
Example; Arm armour = 5.33kg & Leg armour = 9.30kg; these would jointly weigh 14.50kg (add 10% + 1.45kg = 16.00kg total parcel weight
Please note, to make this easier to work out we have included the weights of all items with their product title, viewable via the checkout process.
We have differing charts for the UK and these are split into five cost zones; a ready calculator can be found at --- www.parcelforce.com
