We monitor the performance of our carriers continuously. Whereas we have so rarely had a complaint about the quality of our goods, there have been a very small number of occasions when due to circumstances entirely beyond our control our goods have not arrived by the requested time. Should you experience this please contact us immediately.

Payment: Although our customers offer card payment at the time of placing their order, it is our policy not to action Credit Cards transactions until the day in which the goods are to be despatched. Payment online is through a secure PGP encryption site. We understand that card payments are not always practical, and some people just do not like them, therefore we offer the facility to post a cheque / postal order, directly, to ourselves (please note that we do place a hold on all ‘cheque’ orders until the cheque / Postal Order is received).
Prices: Any price is liable to alteration. If we discover a change we will advise you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming the order or cancelling it. Any changes in VAT rates will be applied as required by law. The right to request a deposit before putting any work in hand is reserved.
VAT: The prices shown are inclusive of 20% VAT when shipping to the United Kingdom. Should your order be from outside the United Kingdom please contact us directly for a proforma invoice as UK VAT rates are not applicable. It is the customer’s responsibility to comply with any specific import law at the product destination and to pay any import duties and local taxes.
Complaints: Well we don't have a procedure - because it has never got to that situation in over 25 years! Clearly we take any complaint very seriously and would expect to contact you by return.
Law and Jurisdiction: Any contract for your purchase from Victoria Regalia Ltd is governed by and has to be interpreted under the Law of Scotland, and you agree that such contract will be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Scottish courts. Please note that we will not supply knives and lighter products to anybody under the age of 21. We do reserve the right to request identification.
Final Note: We suppose because we have always enjoyed an open and trusting relationship with our existing customers, it grieves us to have to write down what has just been mutually understood between us over so many years but we must move with the times…..
Any concern that you might have regarding security, privacy or any complaint in connection with making a purchase online may always be taken up with ourselves, firstname.lastname@example.org
