Shipping & Policies
With the exception of framed items*, Peter Harrington offers free shipping on all UK orders of rare books, maps and prints placed through this website. Shipping to USA and the rest of the world is similarly free for orders over £200. Free shipping applies to website orders only and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. UK orders are shipped for next day delivery. Delivery times overseas are approximately 5–10 working days. For overseas orders of £200 and under, we charge a flat fee of £10 to European countries or £15 to all other destinations worldwide for signed-for air mail delivery. Shipped items are expertly packed by us and fully insured. Our shipments require signature on delivery.
*Please contact us directly on [email protected] for specific costings where framed items are concerned, as they will differ from item to item.
We offer courier delivery worldwide for a flat fee of £50 per shipment. Delivery times are 1–2 business days to New York/New Jersey and Europe; 2–3 business days to the rest of the USA; and 2–5 days for the rest of the world. We use UPS for our courier deliveries, butshipping by FedEx service is also available; contact us if you would prefer us to use the latter. Please note that neither UPS nor FedEx will deliver to PO box addresses.
As all our books are unique and high value items, our credit card supplier requires us to ship all internet orders to the billing address of the card.
In certain circumstances, we may be able to arrange delivery to a more convenient address, such as a work address. Circumstances include:
- Existing customers well known to us
- Customers using an American Express card with an alternative delivery address on file with their card issuer
- Professionals able to offer confirmation of their work address
If you are paying by credit card and your circumstances differ from these, please contact us to discuss further options.
For cleared funds by wire transfer or bank cheque, we can deliver to any convenient address.
