There is no point adding items to your shopping cart, only to find out after you click 'order' the postage costs are huge. Unlike most other online stores we give our postage costs upfront, in a simple to understand format. Where available* we offer three levels of service; basic, tracked and tracked and signed. Geocache Land strongly recommend using a tracked service with every order.
We now ship orders daily from Monday to Friday. If orders are placed before 12.30pm we will normally ship the same day^
Once your order ships, normal expected delivery time in the UK is 3-5 days. For overseas destinations you can expect delivery within 28 days. Customs delays are rare but possible to any overseas destination. The up most care is taken to label your shipment accurately to allow fast processing through international borders. We strongly recommend all customers use a tracked shipping option as these options also include insurance for your order.
We give free Signed For shipping (2nd Class) on all orders over £30 in mainland UK.
We now give free shipping on all orders, world wide, over £100 (tracked and signed)*

Damaged Packages / Missing Items
Unfortunately packages can get damaged in the post and on very rare occasions items can go missing.
When receiving your package please check carefully for any damage to the package. If it looks like any item may be missing refuse to sign and do not take the package. If there is damage to the packaging but it looks like nothing will be missing, accept the package and please photograph the damage (including address label) before opening. If on opening items are found to be missing or damaged please photograph the contents as found in the package showing the damage.
We never reseal packages before sending them and use our own unique tape where needed. If your package has been resealed you must refuse to accept it and do not sign for it (unless marked as opened by official customs/ duty agencies).
In all cases please contact Geocache Land as soon as possible so we can deal with the problem.
Geocache Land are not responsible for any item that is returned as "uncollected", "addressee gone away", "address incomplete", "address inaccessible", "addressee unknown", "refused", "not called for" or "no such address". Any item received back due to any of these reasons will be checked and if all items are in the same condition they left Geocache Land a refund will be made. This refund does not include any shipping fees and may have deductions made to cover the additional costs.
19/03/2020 CoVID-19 (also known as "Coronavirus")
Important notice for all UK customers:
Royal Mail have just sent out the following announcement:
"Due to the current coronavirus situation, from today, Thursday 19 March - until further notice - we have taken the difficult decision to suspend the 1pm guarantee for Special Delivery items. As a result of this suspension, I'm sorry, we will not refund the Special Delivery fee if your item is delivered after 1pm.
We'll still prioritise Special Delivery parcels and letters and will aim to deliver by 1pm or before the end of the day.
Our Special Delivery Guaranteed by 9am service remains unchanged; we still guarantee to deliver by 9am.
We’ve put in place a temporary procedure for services where we would normally capture a signature on delivery. For items delivered on or after Saturday 14th March 2020, our postmen and women will not request a signature but will capture the recipient’s name and will ensure they take in the item. You can still check if we have obtained confirmation of delivery and who we delivered to by tracking your parcel at royalmail.com/track-your-item (where you may see a special code, ‘XP1’ instead of signature).
As a result, we will not consider refunds or compensation requests for not capturing a signature for items delivered on or after Saturday 14 March 2020 and until further notice."
Due to the above changes any item sent by 'Signed For' or 'Special Delivery' by Geocache Land Ltd will be considered as delivered even without a signature. Geocache Land Ltd will not be responcible for items that have have been marked as delivered.
This does not affect overseas deliveries and Tracked & Signed deliveries will continue as normal.
