We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice.

In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
Shipping And Handling
Shipping costs are based on the total weight of your order and delivery method selected.
Pallet and Courier costs are for accesable post codes - Up to zone 3 of our transport companies rate card.
If you think your delivery location is somewhat remote please contact us to confirm the delivery charge.
All bisque orders are best shipped on a pallet. Bisque Direct will subsidise pallet delivery costs for orders over £300 (shown as Subtotal in the shopping cart). Additional subsidised delivery for orders over £600 and £1000 (both shown as Subtotal in the shopping cart). Please see options for your location when checking out.
This is the best way to ship bisque items. For all standard (excluding Next Day) pallet deliverys Bisque UK can arrange delivery on a Book In basis. The transport company will call you to arrange a suitable day for delivery. This ensures customers know when the pallet delivery will be arriving. This Book In service however can delay the delivery by a day or two. Please let us know when placing the order if you would like Book In or not for the pallet delivery. Best way to do this is to put a note in the Special Instructions box when selecting your required delivery method during Checkout.
Recommended maximum order value per pallet is £1200.00. Items sent on pallet are insured and any damage or breakages will be replaced on the next order. Please send photographs of all damaged items to [email protected] along with your business name.
COURIER - 30kg limit per shipment
All bisque is packed in cardboard boxes using bubble bags as cushion. 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 and/or fragile items or ones with vulnerable protruding parts.
Courier is not the ideal shipping method for such fragile items as ceramics. Bisque Direct do not recommend sending bisque by courier but will do so, as long as customers accept the fact 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 provide a credit for those items with your next order. Please note Bisque Direct will not send replacement items, unless customers pay the delivery cost. Bisque Direct will not refund the cost of broken items. Always ensure you order more than you need in case breakages occur.

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.
