Order confirmation indicates receipt of 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.
Most products are kept in stock and we aim to dispatch UK and International orders within 3 business days of order (Royal Mail for smaller orders and a courier for larger orders). If any of your items are urgent please let us know. Some items are special order items and are ordered on demand. These items are marked as such on their product pages, with an anticipated delivery time noted in the details on the page.
All overseas deliveries are sent via courier service. All courier deliveries will require a signature on delivery.
*** Please note ***:
1. Orders that have been sent by Royal Mail have a 15 day period before any claims of non delivery can be made. This is from the date of dispatch. This period is imposed upon us by Royal Mail and we cannot refund or replace your order until this period has expired. During this time it is advisable to check with neighbours and to call the local Royal Mail Sorting Office to enquire about your parcel. We will, of course, work with you and try our best to track down any late deliveries.
2. Most orders will need to be signed for so please ensure that there is someone to receive/sign for your goods at your delivery address. Return and re-delivery charges will apply if your goods are continually not signed for. If you fail to take delivery of the goods and the goods are returned to us, we reserve the right to charge you for additional delivery costs or to refund the cost of the goods and deduct the cost of delivery.
3. You agree that proof of delivery supplied by our delivery company is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received.
If your item is not in stock, we will place a special order and inform you of an estimated delivery date. If stock is no longer available we will advise you of the most similar alternative.
For orders made from the UK or the European Union, 20% VAT is added. All other orders are VAT free..

Do this by contacting us by email and quoting the order number supplied to you. Your refund will be paid within 30 days. No refunds can be given on special order items.

On receipt of the returned items we will either issue a replacement or provide a refund for the cost of the item. If the product is found not to be faulty we will treat the return as a cancellation as outlined above.
Incorrect Item Received or Shortage
If you have received an incorrect item or an item is missing from your order, we ask that you report it to us within 7 working days, we will then inform you how to proceed. If an item is missing please check the paperwork sent with your order to ensure the item is not being sent in a separate parcel.
