Delivery methods and costs

Abington MG Parts Ltd ship parts worldwide. Conditions imposed by our card issuer Sec Pay require that if you pay by credit card, we may only deliver to the address at which your card is registered unless otherwise requested by telephone, fax or e-mail, we will provide the optimum delivery service for your parcel consistent with minimum cost and adequate speed.

The cost of delivery depends largely on several factors - where in the world is it to be sent, how quickly do you want it delivered, how valuable is it, and most important of all, how heavy or bulky is your order? The first three factors may be known, but in many cases the weight and bulk cannot be known until your order is packed.

We have around 15,000 stock lines, for most of which we know the weight. Yet we can also supply around 75,000 other lines from our suppliers, and we will not usually know the weight of these before they are delivered to us. Another consideration is that sometimes the packaging itself can have significant weight - for example heavy items have to be in strong containers, and delicate items such as windscreens or panels have to be well-protected.

We also draw your attention to the fact that an increasing number of countries levy an additional import tax or customs duty which is nothing to do with us, but which you do have to pay. In case of doubt, please contact your own countries' Customs and Excise department to establish what this charge (if any) may be. You are strongly advised to ask us for a quotation on shipping costs to Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand or Japan and not to use automatic credit card payment. We may be able to suggest alternative delivery.

In the case of Norway and Switzerland, we need to quote for delivery, so you cannot use automatic payment. Please be aware that Northern Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland may also incur extra costs when delivering.
