    We do apologise but unfortunately, it is beyond our control
  2. Islands including e.g. Northern Ireland, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Scilly Isles, Scottish Isles and the Channel Islands
  3. Export to Europe and Worldwide

UK Carriers

We use DPD, DHL or Parcelforce for our Trackable Courier / Express Deliveries.
We use Tuffnells for our heavy / hazardous parcels - these deliveries are trackable but the details are not automatically available to you - Our despatch team are happy to work closely with you to ensure delivery at a convenient time.
Carrier deliveries require a signature unless you tick the appropriate box in checkout indicating that it is safe to leave the parcel.
Please give instructions for the delivery driver on where it is safe to leave the parcel but please restrict them to one short sentence if possible.
Please note that if you are in a surcharged delivery area then you may enter a separate delivery address e.g. at work which may not be surcharged.
This is also a good idea for valuable parcels requiring a signature.
If you are in doubt about any aspect of our delivery system please contact us - we are here to help.

Export Delivery

You can be confident about placing an order with Jimmy Green Marine because we have a great deal of experience and expertise in exporting all over the world and as a team, we care that you get the best possible level of personal service. We can take orders by email and on the telephone as well as online.

If you are having any difficulty at all in completing your order, we are here to help by telephone or email, including information on a suitable specification for your application.

If the website is not giving you the right shipping option, tell us and we will solve the problem.

If you are struggling to complete your purchase, we can help. There is a method to save your order at checkout without committing any funds.
Use the 'Payment by Transfer' option while we find a solution e.g. if we need to quote you a special shipping price.

If we notice a possible mistake in your order, we will email you to check.

If you need something urgently in a remote part of the world, we will expedite it, but we will be honest about how long we think it will take to arrive.
We use DHL for all our urgent air express deliveries because they have an excellent reputation for delivering the parcel on time. We DO NOT use Fedex.

We send orders to the EU and Europe outside the EU on a daily basis with a choice of different shipping options. We regularly send heavy pallets loaded with e.g. Anchor Chain, Anchors etc.

Vat is payable within the UK with the exception of the Channel Islands.
UK Vat is not payable on export orders.

Import Duties

UK Vat (20%) is deducted from our prices for export, but please note that any duties, taxes and related commissions charged by the importing customs authority are the sole responsibility of the customer.

Export to the EU

UK Vat (20%) is deducted from our prices for export.

You will be required to pay VAT at the rate applicable in the country where you receive the parcel when it arrives.
VAT in the EU varies from country to country (19%-25%)

The UK has a tariff free arrangement with the EU.
Export to the EU from the UK requires an EORI number - for Jimmy Green Marine it isEORI GB 979342765000

There should be no import duty to pay on deliveries to the EU where the country of origin is the UK or the EU.
The majority of our products are sourced in the UK or EU.
However, for those that are manufactured outside the UK or the EU, there may be import duty to pay.
This varies according to the international commodity code for each product, but seems to be mainly around 2.5% to 3% for marine accessories.

Regardless of whether there is any duty to pay, there will be a Customs Clearance/Courier Administration Fee to pay on receipt of your parcel.
This varies from country to country, but so far has been around 15 euros.

Our export invoices include all the necessary documentation for a trouble free parcel delivery service to the EU:

  • GB EORI number
  • International commodity codes
  • Country of Origin statement

WE use DHL for deliveries to the EU because they have demonstrated that their service is the most reliable.
We can use other couriers on request.


  • Royal Airmail is available for International small parcels up to 0.5kg - this service may be sub-contracted to the postal service of the receiving country and can sometimes take several weeks to arrive for some European destinations.
  • DHL Express Courier is a reliable and swift service - generally 2 days to most European countries and 3 to 4 days for remote parts of the world. This courier is automatically available at checkout up to a parcel weight of 30kg. Heavier parcels will generate a 'Quote Required' option.
  • DHL Economy (or DPD) - this service is available to most countries in Europe with a fixed starting rate for parcels up to 30kg and a maximum parcel weight of 50kg.
  • Overland effectively means by land and/or sea, not by air and is therefore not automatically available at checkout to some islands in Europe e.g. Malta - please request an economy shipping price.
  • Heavy Freight - This service is delivered by DHL or a freight forwarder e.g. Kuehne and Nagel and is available to most countries in Europe from 50kg up to 1000kg.
