IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE MIDDLE EAST
Unfortunately, deliveries to the Middle East appear to be experiencing severe delays of up to 2 months. This is beyond our control and is caused by a delay with local postal services, in the receiving countries.
For customers in the Middle East where P.O Box addresses are used, to avoid any unnecessary delays please provide a P.O box address for delivery as Royal Mail require this. In the “notes” section of your order, please also provide a physical address i.e door number, street name, building name, etc in case the order is large/heavy and we need to send your order via courier.
The Royal Mail website clearly states:
“Delivery is to PO Boxes only for the Middle East.
There is no mail delivery to street addresses in the Middle East. All mail goes to PO Boxes at various post office locations or to business addresses for delivery to employees.
Please make sure you have the correct PO box address and include it on the item you are sending”.
You can check your order’s current status in your account. If your books have not arrived within a reasonable delivery time you can inquire into the status of your order by e-mail to info(@)kubepublishing(.com), or by telephone to (+44) (0)1530 249 230. Our office hours are Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 5pm.
A customer may cancel an order between placing the order and it being shipped. If the cancellation happens after the goods have been processed and despatched then a refund will not be offered until the goods have been returned. Original delivery costs in this case are non-refundable, as is the returns postage cost.
This does not apply to eBooks.
When we ship books outside the UK, the recipient is liable for any local taxes or import duties that may be payable. Kube can take no responsibility for this. If the goods are returned due to unpaid tax, the costs will not be refunded as the sale has been completed. Although the goods can be re-dispatched with only a further charge for dispatch at the customer’s request.
Our postage charges for both mainland UK and International deliveries are based on the current Royal Mail rates, plus a 50p charge for packaging.
Postage costs will be capped at £10 for 24kg of books for delivery within mainland UK. International delivery costs will vary.
If you order over £50 of books postage is FREE to an address in mainland UK.
Alternatively, customers are welcome to collect from our offices for free. Please contact us to arrange a suitable time for collection.
