Surprised Stare Games Ltd

Terms and Conditions


Items will normally be sent by 2nd class post in the UK and by airmail for overseas addresses. For larger orders, we will contact the customer to arrange a suitable delivery method. We reserve the right to use alternative methods, e.g. couriers. We will advise customers with larger orders to insure their purchases and will make an appropriate charge for this at cost. Customers may decide to forego insurance at their own risk.

Please allow two weeks for delivery within the UK and four weeks delivery for overseas addresses.

VAT, postage, packing and handling

All product prices quoted on the website for purchasers in the UK and Europe (the EC) include VAT at 20%. Prices for purchasers outside the UK and the EC include VAT at zero rate.

The VAT on your order is calculated at check-out on the total value of your order, including delivery charges.

Delivery charges (postage, packing and handling) will be added at check-out. Our delivery rates depend on the value and weight of the products ordered and the destination. These rates are based on standard UK Royal Mail shipping rates, with a small additional charge for packaging and handling. For simplicity we differentiate only between UK and European (EC)addresses and US and the rest of the world.
