Shipping to EU: Why we have chosen not to

Due to the extra cost caused by Brexit bureaucracy, coupled with the reluctance or inability of some EU countries to process packages in a timely manner through Customs, we have take the decision not to ship to the EU. This extra cost is significant. Processing packages through Customs (even with the full paperwork correctly completed) in some EU countries is taking too long to be reasonable. This results in chargebacks via the current payment methods.

We cannot forsee this changing any time in the future. Also we cannot make exceptions as this would be against the law, nor can we enter into any discussions on the matter.

It is a sad state of affairs. Rest assured Brexit does not affect countries outside the EU, so orders to US, Japan etc are not affected and we look forward to your orders.

Brexit refers to the withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU) after a referendum held in June 2016, in which the UK electorate voted to leave the EU. The process of Brexit has had significant implications for trade between the UK and the EU.

One of the key changes resulting from Brexit is that the UK is no longer part of the EU's single market and customs union. This means that trade between the UK and the EU is subject to new customs procedures and checks, which have led to some disruption and delays at the borders.

Overall, the full impact of Brexit on trade between the UK and the EU is still uncertain, as it will depend on various factors, including future trade negotiations, and the broader economic and political context.
