There are several factors that will affect the price of the tatami mats including:

  • The type of mat surface
  • The thickness of the mat
  • The size of the mat
  • The type of core
  • The type of border

There are two options for shipping, a private shipment for your mats or a shared shipment whereby three of more orders are shipped together. A shared shipment will generally reduce the cost of an order in the region of £100-£200 and this is particularly relevant for small orders of 1-4 mats where a lot of the cost is incurred in the actual process of arranging shipping and all of the fixed costs associated with it.

With a shared shipment the fixed costs of the shipment are shared between different orders which helps to keep the cost down. The drawback of a shared shipment is that the timing can be more difficult to predict and can increase the waiting time from the seven weeks for an individual shipment to 3 months or more for a shared shipment. It all depends what orders come in and they do tend to be like buses!
