Postage

 

 

     When we are in Thailand any colonies ordered will be sent direct from our ant farm in Thailand.

 

     For all orders sent from Thailand:

 

     For all orders sent from Thailand there will be a postage charge. The amount will depend on the destination and number of colonies ordered. The minimum postage charge will be £15.

     There is also a minimum order value that we will send from Thailand which is £100.

     All orders to other countries will be sent by Thailand’s 'Express Mail Service'. This postal service provides us with an online 'track and trace' service - which enables us to follow your orders progress and confirm that delivery has been made.

 

 

      We return to the UK twice a year and import a selection of colonies with us when we return - and hence any colonies ordered during the time we are in the UK will be sent from our address in the UK.

     After the colonies have been imported into the UK the postage charge depends on which country they are sent to and the value of the order.

 

     For all orders sent from the UK:

 

     For colonies sent to other addresses in the UK:

     The cost of postage is included in the colony price and is not an additional extra.

     Orders will be sent by Royal Mail 'Special Delivery' which is a guaranteed next day delivery service. This service requires a signature on delivery - so we will always contact you before posting to ensure that someone will be in to take delivery.

     There is no minimum order value for orders to be sent anywhere within the UK.

 

     For colonies sent to European Union countries outside the UK:

     For these countries if the order is above £150 there will be no postal charge.

     For orders under £150 there will be a basic charge of £15 for postage.

     All orders will be sent by Royal Mail 'Airsure' service. To nearby countries such as France and Germany this usually takes between two - four days. This postal service has an online 'track and trace' service which enables us to follow your orders progress and confirm that delivery has been made.

     There is no minimum order value.

 

     For orders sent to countries outside the EU:

     There will be a charge for postage. The amount will depend on the destination and the number of colonies ordered.
