It's illegal to sell bb guns, crossbows, knives and their accessories to anyone below the age of 18.
To avoid this we carry out standard age checks on all new customers before we can process and dispatch your order.
Some of the steps that we take are:
1. We check the public version of the electoral roll, also known as the open register,
2. We will contact you via e-mail and at theasking for proof of age. To speed the process up you can send this information preemptively.
- You will need to provide us with a scan or photo of your official ID; Full drivers licence or passport.
There are many ways to send your ID, however these are the most popular methods;
1). Email: You can reply to one of the emails you recieve form us.
2). Whatsapp, Telegram or MMS: 07725 909 600
3). Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ukcrossbows - Send a private message, don't post on the public wall.
4). Or you can send a link to a cloud storage page with your ID image, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, etc.
If you don't want to send ID, you can send a video message of yourself stating something like:
'Hi, My name is John Smith, I ordered the Jaguar crossbow, order number 13000, this is my proof of age.'
Please note, you must look over 25 for the video message option, if you are over 18 and look 14, then you'll still need to send ID.
