Foaling Alarm Postage

Postage is "at cost" and usually uses the packaging in which the items were sent to me.

The Royal Mail parcel service is relatively cheap.  First class post usually arrives the next day, but there is no guarantee.  Second class post takes two or three days, but may be longer.

The Royal Mail special delivery service will guarantee next day delivery or your money back.  It includes compensation in cases of loss and requires a signature from the recipient.

Units will be returned using the same service as was used for sending them to me unless other arrangements have been made.  If delivered to me by courier, the package will be returned by Royal Mail Special DeliveryTM Next Day unless otherwise specified.

For economy, it is best to remove the harnesses from transmitters.

Sometimes splitting a package into two parts can be a cheaper alternative.
