When you place an order to purchase a product from McCrimmons we will send you an automatic e-mail confirming receipt of your order and a follow up email containing the details and content of your order. 

Your order represents an offer to McCrimmons to purchase a product which is accepted by McCrimmons when we dispatch that product to you.

Delivery outside of the UK. 
McCrimmons endeavour to find the best value delivery method for goods sent to addresses outside the UK. Each order will be individually priced based on weight, size, contents and required delivery date. Customers who place orders from outside of the UK will be contacted with details of the shipping and handling charge on their order. This will replace any shipping and handling charge shown in the Shopping Cart. Once the shipping and handling fee is agreed goods will be dispatched.

Note all customers from outside the EU are responsible for any  additional local duties and taxes which may be levied (see taxes above).
