Delivery and Returns Information

Order Processing

We aim to despatch orders received after 10am the day after they are received. If you place an order before 10am we will do our best to despatch it on the same day. Goods are sent by second class Royal Mail and should arrive within seven working days. International orders are dealt with individually, but we aim to use the quickest means necessary.

Postage charges

Our postage charges are based on the current Royal Mail rates, plus a 95p charge for packaging.

Postage costs will be capped at £10 for 25kg of books.

Order Progress

You can check your order’s current status in your account. If your books have not arrived within a reasonable delivery time you can inquire into the status of your order by e-mail to Sales@ukiabookstore.com, or by telephone to +44 (0) 116 251 4629.

Import Duties

When we ship books outside the UK, the recipient is liable for any local taxes or import duties that may be payable. UKIABooktore.com cannot take any responsibility for this and if the goods are returned due to unpaid tax the costs will not be refunded as the sale has been completed. Although the goods can be re-despatched with only a further charge for dispatch at the customer’s request.
