Ultimate3 kit (etc) shipping

1) Shipping takes place using standard post office service. No courier is used (e.g. DHL, FedEx, UPS etc). The delivery will be by your standard postal service.

2) No tracking is available - it is much too expensive.

3) Your shipment will generally arrive in a cardbox box sized 146 x 118 x 72mm. Be aware that if this will not fit through your letterbox and you are not at home, you may need to collect the package from your neighbour or from your local mail sorting office (varies, from country to country). In cases where the shipment is small and does not contain any delicate components e.g. LCD, the shipment may alternatively be packaged in a padded envelope.

4) Shipping times have been compiled, based on customer feedback, and are as shown in the table below.

Sent: the number of orders which have been shipped - from time to time as advised on ordering pages, there may be a delay in shipping while components/kits are being re-stocked, this causes a lag between "Orders" and "Sent".

Fdbck (feedback): the number of the "Sent" orders, whose recipients have emailed me to tell me what date their shipment arrived.

Min: the minimum number of days in shipping

Avg: the average number of days in shipping

Max: the maximum number of days in shipping

Note: Min/Avg/Max days are number of calendar days, not working days! Note also that this is the number of days actually spent in shipping, from despatch to receiving your package. You will receive one email shortly after placing your order, confirming it. You will receive another email when your order has been shipped. Please provide feedback on when you recevied your package, for calculating the statistics used for the table below.
