Making A Purchase
Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on ‘Checkout’ and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order. We accept credit card payment. Delivery at this time is to UK mainland only, and we will only deliver to the card holders address for security reasons. We accept Visa and Mastercard. We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Backordered items are not charged until they are shipped. You may send your credit card information via phone 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.
Shipping And Handling
Shipping and Handling will vary depending on the total weight of items ordered. You can find the shipping cost of for a particular order on the checkout screen. Please note, the price shown on the checkout screen is subject to VAT. All items are dispatched on a next day delivery service and once shipped should reach you the next working day. Orders will be dispatched providing the item(s) are in stock and payment has been processed. If the order contains one or more items, and not all items are in stock the order will not be shipped until all items are in stock. In this event however the customer will be contacted and part order shipment can be arranged. We will only deliver to the UK Mainland at this time and cannot deliver to any other address other then that of the card holder. This is to help protect all parties in the event of a fraudulent attempt for a transaction.
Orders placed for in-stock items before 2pm will normally be delivered NEXT WORKING DAY. Delivery times are all subject to stocking, quality control and seasonal backlog. For precise delivery schedules we would encourage you to contact us.
