Pains Wessex flares are in stock and shipped direct from the Pains Wessex UK Distributor to your door.

Flares can only be transported by strictly regulated, approved couriers.

Delivery is only available to UK mainland post code addresses.

Unfortunately, the strict rules and regulations regarding the transportation of pyrotechnics mean that flares carriage is expensive.

Our shipping charge to you is £30 including vat per consignment, but this is a subsidised price, the cost to us is £36

Please place a separate order for your flares i.e. if you would like any other items, please order them separately.

The Direct Drop Ship aspect of the service, together with the regulations, means that there could be a day or two delay in despatch.

Please try to plan your flares requirements in good time to avoid disappointment.

Pains Wessex individual flares and bespoke packs are available for direct shipment, please enquire.
