Handling charge, postage and packing.

To offset the Royal Mail increases we have devised new methods of packing our products to protect against crushing; so for UK customers we can now post a wider range of small parts at 'large letter' rate. Some will still have to go as 'small parcel'.

Please consider raising multiple orders through your local enthusiasts' group to offset postage. Enquire about our discount terms.

We are always happy to supply in quantity to dealers and societies.

Payment is accepted by PayPal (accounts@progress-products.co.uk) - we will gladly quote a total and raise a PayPal ‘Money Request’; by cheque or postal order in UK pounds payable to ‘Progress Products’; or by bank transfer - please request bank details.

Here is our complete list including some items which we have yet to illustrate in the body of the website - please ask if you want pictures. They are grouped by postage - you pay only the highest rate applicable when placing an order for multiple items.
