Retroleum - The Retro Spares Shop

** VAT & Admin charges for EU customers **  Unfortunately, the EU has abolished the low-value VAT exemption for importing small items. This means that *all* orders from customers in the EU are now liable for VAT plus an admin charge made by the postal service.   These charges will be requested by your local mail service before they will deliver your package. I cannot say in advance how much they will be but EU VAT is around 20% of the value of the order (it varies depending on the EU member state) and the admin charge seems to be between 5 and 15 Euros (again it varies locally). This means that small orders from EU countries may no longer be commercially viable. Please consider the likely total cost before ordering. There is some more info here.

Welcome to www.retroleum.co.uk! Here you'll find various new, unused old stock and salvaged retro computer components and peripherals, mainly for the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64.

I try to keep delivery charges as low as possible and most small, lightweight orders will come under Royal Mail's Large Letter 100g category, EG: UK (2nd class) £1.50, Europe £3.70, Rest of World £4.75.

 The postage cost of each order is calculated automatically, taking into account the size and weight.  Tracking (which includes extra insurance) is also available. Please see this page for full information.
