Delivery & Postage

Payment Options

UK Buyers

Rural Retro accept payments using Paypal for online purchases. Paypal is a universally accepted and trusted method of online banking and accepts all major credit cards. You do not need to have a Paypal account to use this method of payment and at no time does Rural Retro have access to your financial information.

Overseas Buyers

Rural Retro accept payments via Paypal in sterling only.

Postage

UK Buyers

All items are dispatched using Royal Mail signed for service so will need a signature on receipt. On many items I include FREE postage for delivery within the UK. Items that include free postage are clearly marked in the description.

The UK delivery charges per item where applicable are:

Up to 2kg £4.50

Over 2kg £7.00

Maximum charge for multiple purchases or very large or heavy items is £15.00.

If you would prefer to save money on postage costs and collect your item in person, please contact me before making a purchase and I will be happy to make suitable arrangements with you if possible.  Your items will be very carefully packaged using protective materials. I re-use and re-cycle materials wherever possible, which benefits the environment and saves you money on packaging costs.

Overseas Buyers

Please contact me to place an order, and I will calculate the best possible shipping costs for your country.

Delivery Timescales

I aim to process your order as quickly as possible. Items are normally dispatched within 3 working days of payment and can take up to a further 5 working days to deliver.

Returns

I hope you will love your purchase but I offer a full refund if for any reason you are not happy with your item when it arrives. All I ask is that you provide written confirmation that you would like to return your item within fourteen working days of receipt. You must confirm the following:

1) Your name and address

2) Order number

3) Reason for return

Some items might be non returnable for practical reasons and where this is the case the item description clearly indicates no returns.The cost of returning items is payable by you and you are responsible for the item until it arrives back with me so I strongly recommend you use a service that provides tracking or insurance to return items.

Defective Items

Vintage items - Genuine vintage items are likely to have wear consummate with their age. (I believe this adds to their unique charm). I take care to describe the general observed condition and provide images to aid descriptions. Please note that toys and games are not suitable for children as they are sold as collectors items and do not comply to today's safety regulations. Please also be aware that different computer screens can display slight differences in images such as colour and may not be 100% accurate. If in the unlikely event a vintage item has been significantly mis-described then please contact me before returning the item. In this event, a full refund, including the outward and return postage costs will be made.

Mishaps

I take great pride in delivering your goods as quickly and efficiently as possible but sometimes unforeseen delays, breakages or "oops" events can occur. Whatever the problem I will resolve it in a fair and reasonable way so please contact me as soon as you discover a problem so the issue can be resolved to your satisfaction.
