A brief over-view of how we operate

PAYMENT – may be made by credit or debit card securely through the website.

Alternatively telephone to order your item(s) and pay by Card, or Cheque or by Postal-Order – please make payable to “A-Part”.  Most major Credit & Debit Cards are accepted including American Express.

FULFILMENT of Order – we endeavour to Pick, Check and Pack within 24/48hrs for Despatch, however at busy times fulfilment may take a little longer.

Post and Packing Charge (P&P), – please see our Delivery Page.

We take great care to pack our parcels carefully.

We can arrange for delivery to almost anywhere in the world!

To help combat fraud in some cases we may use a data validation service from our sister company Apart-Data.

We endeavour to simplify UK P&P into just four categories:-

‘OO’, ‘N’ gauge and other small parcels:-

1.  Standard P&P charge for ordinary uninsured second class parcels.

2.  add Insured P&P charge to cover the value of the goods.

‘G Gauge and other Large Scale heavy or large parcels:-

3. Standard P & P charge for G Gauge and other Large Scale parcels sent by standard uninsured post

4.  add Insured P&P charge to cover the value of the goods

The charge for UK P&P is applied for each order placed, regardless of the number of items on the order, so it is very economical to order several items together. This standard price may not cover transport costs for very large or very heavy items.

Special rates apply to: Isle of Man, Eire, Channel Islands, UK Remote Areas and Overseas – Please see details on the “Delivery” page

We regularly send parcels of models to Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
