Our instructions manuals are generally only provided in printed form, not as a PDF or other filetype to be sent by e-mail or saved on a disc. If ordered separately, after receipt of payment, the instructions are sent in an envelope via Deutsche Post. The shipping costs look like this:

Germany €2.50

These rates are inclusive of 19% VAT.


Kits and books

After receipt of payment, we deliver to (almost) every corner of this globe. Goods are shipped by MBE (Mail Boxes Etc.). Each parcel is insured up to the value of €520 and delivered to the address supplied with your order. The duration varies from country to country, depending on the distance. For example, MBE allows 2 to 4 working days for Europe, and up to 7 working days outside Europe.

As an alternative, we also offer shipping via DHL. This is a bit cheaper, but it usually also takes longer for international shipping. Parcels are insured up to the value of €500.

The shipping costs are calculated as follows:

Destination/zone Price via MBE Price via DHL
Germany (mainland) €11.00 €7.00
German islands and Büsingen €22.00 €7.00
