Terms and Conditions

Returns Policy


Taikyu Ltd employs weight based shipping charges within the UK and across Europe.

An estimate of the total shipping charges can be made prior to the checkout by using the "Estimate Shipping and Tax" box, choosing your country from the dropdown list, entering any other details and clicking "Get a Quote", you can then select the delivery service to add to your shopping cart. Shipping is also estimated during the checkout proces of your order.

When estimating shipping you are given an option to add insurance to your delivery. We strongly recommend this as if a parcel is lost or damaged we WILL NOT replace it. We only use reliable shipping agents like UPS but sometimes we may use more economical methods for shipping.

Please ring our sales staff to arrange shipping if shipping is not available to your country or have any problems.
