For products other than paint:

·         All orders to UK addresses valued at over £50 are sent free of postage charges.

·         Orders to international addresses valued at over £150 (excluding large plastic kits) are sent free of postage charges.

All international orders are sent via tracked postage options. We regret the additional cost this incurs, however the losses we suffered with untracked international orders were unsustainable so we cannot offer untracked postage overseas any more.


For any non-paint products below the free-post thresholds above, postage costs are calculated by weight and bulk. Please add the item(s) to your shopping cart and the webstore will show you the shipping options available before you commit to purchase or have to enter any personal details.

This applies to only Paint/Thinners.

We can only send dangerous goods through our specialised contract within mainland UK. Our web store is unable to distinguish between mainland and islands.

All enamel paint and thinners count as dangerous goods and therefore the following applies to all purchases of the above.

Colourcoats paint & Colourcoats thinners have a minimum order quantity of 6 tins or bottles (any size thinners). These can be of any 6 colours (not 6 tins of each colour) and includes tins within coloursets and bottles of thinners. 1 bottle of thinners (any size) counts as 1 tin. Empty tins do not count.

Any order placed for under 6 tins/bottles will automatically be cancelled and refunded.

This minimum order does not include empty tins. These do not count towards the postage quantities and can be sent under our normal postage terms.

If you wish to purchase less than 6 tins, please contact us directly. This will incur a postage surcharge.

If you are an international customer please check our "Where to Buy" page for international stockists throughout Europe, USA & Australia. All other products can be posted internationally.
