Many music shops in the UK will supply
our music and there are shops in Germany, France, Spain, Italy,
Scandinavia, U.S.A., Japan and Australia who stock some of our
But if you prefer to order directly from us, please:
Print off and use our order form if you are sending it in the snail-mail post. (otherwise an email or phone call is fine - and quicker)
Give catalogue numbers to avoid confusion over titles (people do sometimes ask for The Allegro Moderato without specifying instrument or composer).
Give your name and full address, with the post code (we get two or three orders per year with no name or address to send the music to).
Check the approximate postage and packing from the chart below but we will advise you of the exact amount once the order is packed and weighed
Short whinge about banks (and careful not to try a Spoonerism with that one!)
The most cost effective way for you to pay is by credit card or BACS, since this avoids paying extra in heavy bank charges for cheques, particularly from overseas. The banks make a big play in their advertising of being the friends of small businesses, but in practice their charges make it very difficult for a small concern such as ours because they levy almost any fee they like for changing foreign currency cheques, as well as charging us just for writing out our own cheques. They are of course quite happy to look after our money on deposit (though without paying us any interest) and even charge us for paying into the account. This means that a customer in Canada who orders 20 dollars of music could end up paying at least 15 dollars extra (i.e.75 per cent extra) just to cover the bank charges for cheques in England. So bank transfer or credit card is a better route. We probably won't be able to accept cheques after 2017.
We accept credit card payments for all major credit and debit cards. Please contact us for details of safe transmission or details for bank transfer. Order Office
Payment from within the UK.
If you prefer to send a cheque or postal order, please enclose it with the order form. We advise you not to send cash through the post.
Payment from other countries.
If you are not paying by credit card, we prefer a payment by BACS (bank transfer, for which there may be an additional charge depending on the currency). If the amount is less than £30 and you paying by cheque, you will have no alternative to sending payment by cheque in pounds because the bank will not handle cheques for small amounts in foreign currency. You can pay larger amounts in dollars, D-Marks, Swiss Francs, etc, but in that case you must add the equivalent of £10.50 to the total, in order to cover the heavy bank charges in the UK. (See Whinge above) In general, it is much easier (and cheaper for you) to make overseas payments by credit card, as there is no extra charge to you for using that method. Otherwise, order from a shop which deals with us.
Larger orders? Please email us for a quote on postage. These prices are a guide only, as it is impossible to predict the weight of many different orders containing different editions, with variable amounts of extra parts, etc.
