Standard UK Delivery: Always Free!

At Speciality Metals, we believe in making our high-quality metals accessible without the stress of additional shipping costs. That’s why all UK deliveries are free, regardless of order size! This is because all of our prices are established for our eBay and Amazon stores, where delivery is almost always free. 

Whether you’re ordering a small quantity for a personal project or placing a large order for your business, we’ve got you covered with reliable and cost-effective shipping. There is no extra charge to pay at checkout. 

The Standard Small Order Service: Royal Mail

For all standard small orders, we employ the trusted Royal Mail service.

This reliable and efficient service ensures your metals reach you promptly and securely, without the need for any additional charges.

While this service is untracked, we ensure it maintains a high level of reliability, perfectly suited for all kinds of metal deliveries across the UK. We use this service for sheets and tubes that fit into an envelope and do not have much weight. 

Heavier Packages: Evri’s Tracked Service

For slightly larger orders we offer Evri’s tracked service. If a metal is 1 – 5kgs we will likely use this service. 

This option is ideal for orders where you want to keep an eye on your shipment’s journey.

Evri’s service is known for its reliability and secure handling of lower value packages. Thus making it a great choice for your standard metal orders.

Tracking is supplied automatically to your phone or email. 

The Heavy Option: DX Express’ Courier Service

For heavy or particularly high-value orders, we usually use DX Express’ next-day service. 

DX are specialists in heavier items, and as it is a next-day service it is also great for time-sensitive deliveries, ensuring your significant orders are given the utmost priority and care.

Optional Courier Delivery: DX Express at Your Service

For those who require even faster delivery, we offer an optional courier service via DX Express for a small charge at checkout. 

This option is perfect for when you need your metals quickly or for high-value orders.
