For courier delivery to off shore, Scottish Highlands and overseas, postage costs and courier surcharge will apply.

Buyers from Northern Ireland, offshore Islands and Scottish highlands, please inquire via ebay messages before the purchase to confirm postage cost due to additional charges imposed by couriers a surcharge by the couriers may be levied to cover carriage to these areas.
The surcharge may not apply to small items being sent via Royal mail. Please email item details for postage quote. Where possible we will try our best to avoid courier service for surcharge areas. In some cases we may absorb the additional cost as a goodwill gesture to ship via budget 3 to 6 working day carriers.
We will also like to emphasise that although these areas are indeed part of UK but due to high cost of shipping, distance transportation and local third party carriers, couriers charge surcharge which we have no control over. More details can be found by contacting any UK courier companies or on their websites help section. This also applies to international destinations.

We take great care when packaging every item to ensure safe shipment to you and charged postage is only to cover our postage & packaging costs.
Most common cause of trims splitting, cracking and lugs damaging is due to incorrect fitting or attempting to fit a wrong size. With this in mind, every single wheel trim is very closely examined and checked for any sign of damage and then packed very well along with a packing slip showing each trim checked and signed by the packer. Most trims may have 4 or 5 imitation nuts depending on the size of set.
We cannot replace wheel trims that have been damaged by the customer during fitting, neither can we replace any that are Lost whilst driving. It is buyer’s responsibility to ensure fitment is correct before driving your vehicle.
