Q: I am from Sydney, Australia so what would be your requirements for payment and freightint to here  posted by: charlie  17/08/2010 22:25:40
A: Hi Charlie, As we have not sent such a large box of books to australia before, I have checked on the internet and postage would be a maximum of £300, and you would need to sign on delivery. We only aim to cover our postage costs so if it turned out to be any less we would refund you the difference. Regards Keith
