Shipments and Returns

Packages are generally dispatched within 2 working days after receipt of payment and are shipped using your specified mail preference, using Royal Mail in the UK. We have calculated the shipping costs based on the weight of the items, the size and packaging costs for the items you have ordered. All international orders are shipped via Royal Mail and tracked delivery is recommended.  Any dates quoted for delivery of the goods are approximate only, and Rainbow Caching shall not be liable for any delay for delivery of the goods. Rainbow Caching does not accept liability for any additional import duties or taxes but will ensure these are as accurate as possible. Any additional fees will not be refunded to the buyer.

Shipping fees include handling and packing fees as well as postage costs. Handling fees are fixed, whereas transport fees vary according to total weight and size of the shipment. We advise you to group your items in one order. We cannot group two distinct orders placed separately, and shipping fees will apply to each of them. Your package will be dispatched at your own risk, but special care is taken to protect fragile objects.

As an alternative to paying for postage, you may collect your products at an event that Rainbow Caching is attending.
