AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT POSTAGE:

Because of the on-going effects of the Covid-19 pandemic AND NOW BREXIT, in-transit shipping times to all destinations are subject to delay, particularly, but not exclusively, to USA, Europe (particularly Netherlands), New Zealand, and Australia. 

As a result, please allow 12 weeks from date of shipping for your order to arrive. We can not dispatch any replacement orders until 12 weeks from shipping date has passed. If this is unacceptable, please do not place an order.

PLEASE NOTE - there are some countries to which we have to send with a Tracked and Signed For service and for these destinations, the postage is higher. While Covid restrictions are in place at the Post Office, we will only be posting these parcels once a week, on a Thursday. If this is unacceptable, please do not place your order.



Payment Information:

Post-Brexit, VAT will not be charged on orders placed from and delivered to outside the UK. Customers are responsible for paying VAT at their local rate. Please note, certain changes are coming into effect on 1st July 2021 to do with VAT on orders to EU - we, like everyone we have spoken to, are struggling to get to terms with these changes and their ramifications. When we do, shipping terms to EU will undoubtable change again!  

Please note, the customer is responsible for paying local taxes. Gripping Beast always records the true value on Customs and International Shipping Documentation as it is a legal and insurance requirement.

Postage & Packaging (P&P) Information:

Postage is calculated based upon which region of the world you are in and will be added after checkout and before the payment gateway. Please make sure that you have the correct country on your address. If your orders has an incorrect country for the delivery address selected, we will contact you and let you know how much extra postage is required before shipping can take place.
