All bisque is packed securely, bubble wrapped in a cardboard box. Courier deliveries are a great way to receive small emergency orders. Some items are not recommened for courier orders please read item descriptions. These are generally large items or ones with vulnerable sticking out bits.
Courier is not the ideal shipping method for fragile items like ceramics. Bisque Direct do not recommend sending bisque by courier but will as long as customers accept that breakages may occur. The courier companies do not guarantee safe delivery and only carry bisque items if Bisque Direct accept that breakages may occur. If breakages occur, Bisque Direct will credit broken items with your next order. Please note Bisque Direct will not send replacement items only unless customers pay the delivery cost. Bisque Direct will not refund the cost of broken items. Always ensure you order more than you need incase breakages do occur.

For orders delivered within the UK, 20.0% VAT is added.
For orderes delivered to other EU member states 20.0% VAT is added unless an EU VAT number is supplied.
For EU VAT registered businesses items are delivered VAT free however Bisque Direct must be supplied with a valid EU VAT number prior to issuing an invoice. This will remove VAT from the invoice.
For EU member states outside the UK we do not charge VAT however you will still need to pay VAT to your VAT collection authority. For UK businesses purchasing from other EU states the same applies. VAT is not charged by the supplier but must be paid to the UK Customs and Excise (VAT office) via box 2 on your VAT return. This also applies to business on a flat rate VAT scheme.
VAT is thus an even playing field accross the EU.
