Important: Customers Outside the United Kingdom
TimeLine Originals complies in full with applicable UK export regulations. This may involve applying for an export licence if you are purchasing from outside the UK. The process involves passing details to the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA). We will dispatch your order as soon as we receive the appropriate permit, which normally takes no more than three weeks. Under UK law an export permit is required for, inter alia, all coins and antiquities over 50 years old found in UK soil, and for all antiquities if the destination is outside of the European Union.
If your purchase requires such an application, we will handle this on your behalf free of charge.
Coins and small antiquities Standard shipping charges are added automatically to your order for coins and small antiquities.
British Clients: £6.50 for insured ‘Special Delivery’. Inexpensive items can be sent by Recorded Delivery at a cost of £3.00 [use the drop menu on the check out form].
Overseas Clients: £8.00 by insured ‘International signed for’ postal service. If you would like your order to be sent by Federal Express, we can arrange this for you at cost. Export licences may be required for some items. Applications are free of charge and the licence is usually available in 1 - 3 weeks.
Books and other heavy items Total shipping costs for orders that include heavy items such as books will be calculated and charged at cost on receipt of your order. We do not quote postage inclusive prices on heavy items as postage costs vary according to size, weight, destination and postal service.
