This is indicated on our website pages where applicable. Gabriel is fluent in English. Please email your requirements for pricing.
This change is to leave us free to develop our other products, particularly ready-to-run items. You will find these priced as usual.
Progress Products is a small man-and-wife enterprise. As we are both of an ‘at risk’ age we keep trips to the Post Office to an absolute minimum. Instead, for larger items (chassis, wagons, bogies, eyelet-setting kits etc.) we shall use Hermes. They’re reasonably priced and will collect from us. They also offer adequate compensation for loss.
For smaller items of Royal Mail ‘large letter’ size we can simply pass the item to our postie when he/she calls. No proof of posting, no compensation for loss and it has to be buyer’s risk. (Such items are generally of lower value.) Sorry, it’s not ideal but it’s the best we can offer and better than nothing.
For either category, let us know your needs and we’ll quote price with carriage. Inevitably delivery will be slower than before but we’ll do our best.
Payment is accepted by PayPal (email@example.com) - 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.
