Shipping, Delivery & Returns

We accept all major credit cards. After you have placed your order you will be sent an email with your order confirmation - this is simply a notification that we have received your order, the email notification does not indicate that a contract exists between us, this is created once we have have sent you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in case any errors occur in pricing, inadvertently goods have been under priced, or we are no longer able to supply a product. If there is an error in price, we will contact you to confirm your acceptance of the new price.

Shipping outside of the UK


When a package is shipped to internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. These charges will typically be due once the shipped goods arrive at the country of destination.

These charges are not included in the product price or shipping, post & packaging cost. We only charge for transporting your goods therefore these charges are the buyer’s responsibility. 

Shepherd & Woodward are not responsible for these additional charges that may apply.

The buyer is responsible for obtaining information regarding their country’s laws, regulations, and restrictions that may apply when purchasing our products.
