Here at Soar Tackle we are really keen on making sure your items get to you in A1 condition in good time and at the right price.
With this in mind we have put together a two services, Standard using either Royal Mail or Myhermes and our Premium service using Royal Mail or Parcel Force. Premium is a great service as most of the time your local Postie will know you and If your not in then your parcel simply goes to your local Post Office.
Instead of just one price fits all like many other shop's we've put together a variable price system that works on weight as well as the size of the item ordered.
Some items by default will only be sent by Premium delivery, these items are generally fragile and or items of high value. E.G Bottled additives = fragile. Pole sections = high value.
