We appreciate the time authors take to sign books for The Rutland Bookshop and it is important to remember that authors don’t always sign before or on the publication date due to heavy schedules, which can mean that there may be slight delays in sending your signed copy to you. We will send the book as soon as we can after carefully packing it.
So, as a book lover / collector, please be patient. Signed and collectible books are always worth waiting for!
Availability dates are there as a guide and are subject to change.
We will process your order within 48 hours of stock being available and/or signed. Delivery times are outside of our control, but for UK deliveries, orders are shipped within 2-3 working days (it may take slightly longer during busy periods) by 1st class tracked signed for service.
Overseas delivery is also subject to Customs clearance procedures and your local postal service delivery schedule. Airmail delivery can normally be expected within 10-21 working days. However, it may take longer (up to 3 months on rare occasions) due to random Customs checks. We don’t use surface mail for customers abroad.
If you purchase a number of titles that are released in the future we will send them separately and P&P will be charged accordingly to reflect the additional shipping cost unless you have agreed with us prior to ship them all in one shipment. We are happy to group books together where possible and within reason. We will not hold books for more than 2 weeks after release dates due to lack of storage space.
All books are packed professionally in bubble wrap and shipped in boxes.
