Shipping

We aim to ship your order within 72 hours of receipt (excluding weekends). However large orders, orders containing certain items, or orders placed during busy periods may be subject to delay.

SHIPPING PROCEDURE

We ship worldwide and use Royal Mail, Parcelforce and Royal Mail Airmail.

If you place an extremely urgent order, please ensure you either include a comment (in the box supplied) when ordering, or send a follow-up email. We will then make every effort to dispatch your order faster. 

Once your order is dispatched, an email confirmation will be sent to the email address you used to place the order. A tracking number will be included in the confirmation email. (Please note that the stamped date on your order might differ from the date you receive your despatch notification as orders sometimes reach the post office after last collection).

Please note that, once this process has started, your package will then be in the hands of the various mail companies between DFA Miniatures and your home. If you are one of our many international customers: please be aware that flights can be delayed, packages can be rerouted or customs may decide to delay your package for inspection. Thus we ask you to allow 21 working days for delivery before asking us where your package is. While most packages will arrive much sooner; this is legally the amount of time before we can make any postal loss investigation with our mailing companies. We very much appreciate your patience in such cases.

Returns of unopened and un-assembled items will be accepted within 14 days of the original delivery.

We will do this within 48 hours of the goods being returned to us. We advise you to obtain a certificate of posting for any returned items, as we will not refund any order where we physically do not have the goods - even if you say you have posted them. Refunds will be made using the same method as was used to pay for your order. 

If the item is returned for any other reason, you are responsible for paying for return shipping. When we reimburse the order value to you, we reserve the right to retain any payment processing charges incurred.
