All orders placed are sent in one consignment. If there are items in your order that are not currently in stock, this may delay shipment of your order.

If there are items still outstanding after 7 days we will despatch those that are available.

Like most websites, our delivery prices are based on averages. If you are ordering a large number of titles and we find that there is a significant difference between the delivery charge in your order to the actual cost to Barely Read Books then we will reduce the cost to our actual cost where we can; alternatively, we will contact you if for some reason there is a much higher cost. We will absorb any reasonable increases without further charge.

We reserve the right to change our delivery charges without notice and may vary our promotional offers.

Courier Services

We recommend use of a courier service to all destinations. This is for reliability and security, as well as speed of supply. For non-UK orders with a value exceeding £100 we only offer a courier service as these services are trackable and standard delivery, whilst normally reliable, cannot be tracked if there is a delay or a lost package. If you would like us to desptach your order by courier please contact us for a personalised quotation.

‘Delayed despatch’ by courier is available for customers who wish to use this service but do not want the package to arrive before a certain date.

Customs Charges

If you are ordering goods for delivery outside of the UK, please note that your consignment may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the goods reach the country of destination. Any such charges levied in relation to customs clearance must be paid by you. It is accepted by you that Barely Read Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance. Barely Read Books recommend that you check with your local customs officials or post office for more information regarding importation taxes/duties that may be applicable to your online order. You will be the importer of record and responsible for any import VAT and duty that needs to be paid. In addition, any charges for import clearance will be paid by you, the customer.
