The price listed when purchasing include (recorded delivery) in the uk and (international signed for) for international orders.
On the whole international signed for is a fine service but can vary in delivery time scale.
for instance shipments to the states can arrive within 2 to 3 days but on occasion can be held up by either customs or the local postal service resulting in delays, sometimes a week sometimes more.
It seems to be the same for Australia and Japan although Europe seems to be fairly quick.
I can send parcels by fed-ex priority which arrive at your door within 2 to 3 days but obviously there is an additional cost involved.
The website at the moment dosnt offer a chance to chose this option so if it is needed please email me and i will change the order accordingly.
