Delivery Costs
Shipping cost is determined by the volumetric weight of the products you have purchased and the shipping method of your choice. All shipping costs are added at the time you check out.  Please note that these shipping methods are only estimates as volumetric weight maybe more than the actual weight of the product.  We can only determine the actual cost after packing has been done, especially if combining various different products.  If this is the case extra cost may be incurred and passed over to the buyer.
