Welcome to the Westcountry Recumbents website!
On April 1st 2013, Royal Mail changed the way they charge for parcels, to take into account their dimensions as well as their weight.
This means that many wired tyres are now too large to send via Royal Mail and we will need to switch to a courier service for larger parcels. For logistical reasons,this may mean that parcels take slightly longer to arrive.
It also means that for most tyres, shipping costs for individual tyres have increased but also that shipping for multiple tyres will be the same price as for one, so we have therefore separated the shipping element of the price of our tyres to reflect this.
We apologise for this price increase, but it is, unfortunately, unavoidable.
Also, our preferred courier does not deliver to some areas of the UK, so we regret that we will need to send parcels to such areas via Parcelforce, with accordingly higher shipping charges. This includes, but is not limited to, the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
The Post Office parcel changes have now been extended to parcels going overseas, so, with regret, I have had to remove all wired tyres larger than 349 from the EU page, as it is no longer economical to post them. EU customers who still wish to buy these tyres should Email Me and I’ll work out a price for them on an individual basis.
Apologies for the inconvenience.
