Ways to order
UK customers may order online or by mail order.
If you are in Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, the USA or an EU member state, you can place online orders with a combined product weight of 1.85kg or less.
We regret that we do not currently process larger orders from these countries, or any orders from other countries, online. However, you can order by sending us an overseas order enquiry.
We take payment for UK online and all overseas orders via Paypal. You can pay using your credit or debit card by selecting “guest” within the Paypal portal. UK mail orders may pay by cheque. Cheques must be crossed and made payable to “Arthur Ransome Trust”.
We will process and post your order as soon as possible. In most cases delivery should be within 3 – 4 business days for UK customers, 4 – 6 days within the EU, and 6 – 8 days elsewhere overseas. But please note that our shop is not staffed 24 hours per day, or 365 days each year (we need some time off for enjoyable Ransome adventures, after all). It is always possible that your order will coincide with our being half way to Wild Cat Island or at an ART event. Please therefore allow up to 28 days for delivery.
