These are generally large items or ones with vulnerable sticking out bits.
DPD Courier will email and text a 1 hour delivery slot time on the day of delivery. Please ensure Bisque Direct have your current email and mobile number if you wish to receive these motifications.
DPD 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.

If breakages occur, Bisque Direct will add an Internal Credit for the value of the broken items to your account. This Internal Credit can be used against your next order.

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.
