Making A Purchase

Please note - The cut off time for orders to be processed for next day delivery is 2pm Monday to Friday.
Orders received by us after 2pm will be processed on the next working day. Where orders are received at a weekend, they will be processed on the next working day ie Monday with the exception of a bank holiday (UK).

You may send your credit card information via phone, fax, post or over the Internet.

When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

Please note we regret we are unable to ship goods to a P.O.Box address.

Every effort will be made by us to deliver the goods within the agreed delivery period, but no guarantee of delivery date is implied and we shall not be liable for loss or damage occasioned by any delay in delivery.

Where you fail to accept deliveries in accordance with the terms and conditions of the order, the balance of undelivered goods shall be invoiced to you, the goods being held at your risk and any storage and additional delivery costs will be charged.

Delivery Schedule

You must inform us within 14 calendar days if the goods are lost or damaged in transit so that we can make a prompt claim against the delivery company and correct the problem. Please quote your order number in all correspondence.

You can request that goods are left at your address if there is no one to sign for them however you must be aware that this is done so entirely at your own risk. We cannot be responsible for goods left without a signature if you have requested us to do so. You can advise us if you wish us to leave your goods (including any other special instructions) at the shop checkout stage.

Orders are normally packed in protective outers and or wrapped in polythene however this ensures that they are only showerproof at best and will not protect goods for long in the event of persistent rain.

Your goods are normally shipped with a third party courier such as DPD, Yodel, Nightfreight & Parcelforce. The specific courier used will be at our discretion & will depend on factors such as your location, the nature of your order or the delivery service you request. For this reason, we regret we are unable to accept requests for delivery using a specific courier.

Unless you have specifically instructed us to leave your goods if you are out, no delivery will be made without a signature. Instead the carrier will put a card through the door to advise that a delivery has been attempted. It is your responsibility to then contact the courier to arrange a mutally convenient time for re delivery. If the courier is not contacted within 7 days they will return the goods to us. Should you then still require the goods we reserve the right to charge you a further delivery charge to compensate us for the extra costs we will have incurred. This will be the same as the original charge.

You agree that proof of delivery supplied by our delivery company is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received.

Please note we regret we are unable to ship goods to a P.O.Box address.

Back Orders

If your item is not in stock, we will place it on back order for you. You will always be contacted with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait. We reserve the right to substitute out of stock items with those of a suitable equivalent of equal or higher value.
