Standard U.K. Mainland Delivery takes 3 to 4 working days and is FREE on all orders of £100 or more that are being delivered to a single U.K. mainland address in one consignment. For orders under £100, we charge a flat rate of £6.00.

Premium U.K. Mainland Delivery using a non-guaranteed but very reliable overnight service costs £10.00 for orders under £100 and just £4.00 for orders over £100. Remote areas may take an extra day.

Please note higher value orders can take an extra day to dispatch while we carry out additional security checks.

Deliveries to Scottish Highlands, U.K. Islands, Channel Islands & Northern Ireland have a separate set of charges. These are dependant on order value, order weight and destination postcode.

 Tyre-Rite Ltd. operates this website as a 'mail order' service. In order to maintain our competetive prices, we do not work from retail premises. Our goods are stocked at different locations so order collections are not always possible. Please ask first before making a special journey.

The wide range of goods we sell vary dramatically in value,size and weight, so it is impossible to calculate exact shipping costs for every combination of goods you might order. So, we have developed a pricing policy which we believe to be as fair as possible. We have a minimum charge which everyone has to pay for small orders. This doesn't just go towards the price of the stamps, but is there to contribute to our administration costs, which, if you are in business yourself, we're sure you will be very aware of.

Proof of Delivery
is protection for you and protection for us. A SIGNATURE IS REQUIRED for ALL deliveries. Please don't ask us to leave your order in the shed, by the back door or in the dustbin! You can easily give us a different delivery address for a neighbour, relative or your workplace during the checkout process. Business addresses are preferred but not essential, however they do sometimes get a quicker service than home addresses.

Standard Delivery to the U.K. Mainland
normally takes 3 to 4 working days to get to you from the day you order. Saturday may be a working day for you and me, but as far as our couriers are concerned, only Monday to Friday count. If you order on a Saturday or Sunday, your order will be processed on the Monday, so don't start counting your days until Tuesday. Orders up to 2kg in weight are usually sent by Royal Mail, over 2kg and it will usually be sent by Fed-Ex Economy Service. Alternative methods are sometimes used. Higher value orders may take a little longer to dispatch while we carry out additional security checks. You need to place your order before 2pm on a weekday to be sure of same day despatch.

Standard Delivery is FREE on all orders of £100.00 or more that are being delivered to a single U.K. mainland address in one consignment.  For orders under £100, we charge a flat rate of £6.00.

Premium Delivery to the U.K. Mainland
We don't offer a 100% guaranteed next day service. Having said that, Premium Delivery will give you prority same day despatch for orders placed before 3pm on a weekday. We use a non-guaranteed but very reliable overnight service by Fed-Ex or UPS couriers to most areas of the U.K. mainland. Expect delivery within 1 to 2 working days unless you are in a more remote area, where an extra day might be required. Higher value orders may also take an extra day if we need to carry out additional security checks.

Premium U.K. Mainland Delivery using a non-guaranteed but very reliable overnight service costs £4.00 on orders over £100. For orders under £100.00 premium delivert costs £10.00. Remote areas may take an extra day.

If for any reason we are unable to apply Premium Delivery to your order we will advise you by phone or e-mail, and give you the option to cancel your order or accept Standard Delivery.

Delivery to the Scottish Highlands, U.K. Islands, Channel Islands & Northern Ireland
is dependant on several factors including your postcode and order value. The quantity, weight and volume of items ordered can also have a big effect. There is a Shipping Estimator at the bottom of the Shopping Basket page - please make use of it but bear in mind it is just that, an estimate. However it does work very well for the vast majority of orders. If we are unable to ship your order for the estimated price we will contact you to discuss your options. You are welcome to call us or e-mail us to confirm the delivery cost before ordering. Orders up to 2kg in weight are usually sent by Royal Mail. Above this value, we may use UPS, Parcel Force or Yodel. When your order is despatched you will receive an email from the chosen courier with your tracking information. If your order contains any single item that weighs more than 30kg then the only option is pallet delivery which will require an additonal payment.

Orders from most European Union Countries
are very welcome. Many customers find it still works out significantly cheaper to pay our delivery charges than to pay the extortionate local prices. If you place an order online with an overseas delivery address, our Europe shipping rates are automatically applied. These rates include full insurance and a tracking facility. If your order is for a VAT registered company, first create an account, then e-mail us with your registration details. Once verified, you will be able to place orders online without paying VAT. For bulky items and/or delivery to remote areas an additonal payment may be needed, in which case we will advise you of the additional costs and get your agreement and payment prior to dispatch. As a rough guide, we can send a single parcel up to 20kg in weight for around £16.00 to the Irish Republic, France and Germany. Countries such as Italy and Spain cost a little more. Occasionally your address may be classed as a remote area by the courier and a surcharge will be payable. If this is the case we will let you know the extra amount and you will of course have the option to pay this or cancel the order and receive an immediate refund. You are always welcome to telephone or e-mail us with your requirements and full delivery address and postcode so we can calculate the delivery price. European VAT registered customers should always contact us before ordering to ensure they are invoiced and charged correctly.

Scheduled Deliveries
If you absolutely must have delivery on a specific day or a timed delivery (before 10:30 or before 12:00) please telephone or e-mail the sales office for a quote before ordering. These services are offered by our couriers, but at a price!

Non-Delivery
Sometimes the courier may not be able to make the delivery on the first attempt. This could be because there was no-one present to sign for the package, the address given was incomplete or it may be just be a difficult place to find. Should this happen you will be contacted by phone and/or email to arrange a second delivery attempt. Should the second delivery attempt fail or we cannot get in touch with you the goods will automatically be returned to our warehouse after 5 days. This is a carrier policy as they don't like to have piles of undelivered parcels in their depots. In these circumstances any refund made will have both the outbound and return carriage costs deducted. If you need the parcel resending then you will also have to pay for that carriage cost.
