Availability / Estimated Delivery Times

  • We do our best to ensure availability of all advertised products and endeavour to despatch all products within the quoted time.

If you have ordered multiple items they may arrive separately as a partial dispatch.

It may be necessary to adjust prices in the event of an increase in VAT rates, or as a result of a manufacturer price increase. Customers are entitled to a full refund if this is not acceptable.
  • Due to the nature of the clearing system your credit card payment will be taken at the point of processing. If a problem in supply should occur, your payment method will be refunded as swiftly as possible.  The refund may take between three to five days to show as cleared funds on your account, depending on payment provider.
