We find that the cost of delivering items can differ due to location, cost of fuel, size and handling requirements and these are subject to regular changes. To enable us to keep the cost of your parcel service as reasonable as possible, we have set out a number of infrequent and adhoc charges as surcharges. These are applied only when appropriate and are in addition to the normal parcel price.
