Q: Why are your shipping rates to Highlands and Islands so high?
A: Couriers charge Highlands and Islands more in general than elsewhere in GB. Royal Mail was the exception for us which is why we provided a shipping rate with them for up to 10kg to make the cost of delivery more acceptable.
Unfortunately in September 2020 Royal Mail decided to give us an over 230% increase in Tracked 48 rates making it far more costly than the proper couriers and with a less comprehensive service. So, we have had to remove this option.
So in place we have DPD Highlands and Islands. What may be worth considering is that there is a flat rate up to 30kg (gross weight).
