Terms and Conditions

Stock availability

We cannot guarantee availability of all stock lines at all times. If a product is out of stock, we’ll give you an estimated delivery date.

We will never debit your credit or debit card for any items that are not in stock.  If an item is temporarily out of stock, this will be clearly shown on your receipt.  Any out of stock item is not charged for until it is despatched.  You will only be charged postage once, per order.

When confirmation of your order is received, this only serves to indicate that we have received your order: it does not indicate that a contract exists between us.  The contract is made when we dispatch your order.

All prices shown are in UK (£) sterling only.

All prices include, where applicable, UK VAT at the current legislated rate.

On export orders outside of the EU, UK VAT is deducted. (Local import duties may be payable on receipt of your goods).

Shipping and handling for UK addresses (mainland)

All mainland UK orders are sent out using Royal Mail 1st Class. (1st Class post does not guarantee a next day delivery). Heavier parcels are sent by carrier – please allow 2-3 working days.

For tables, generally allow 7-10 days.

If you want GUARANTEED NEXT DAY DELIVERY we can provide this using royal mail special delivery service but this will be chargeable at cost

Overseas / international addresses

The delivery times for overseas orders may vary greatly depending upon the postal destination and available methods of dispatch.  Generally, most overseas orders can be sent as a small airmail packet or international parcel.

On all international orders, carriage and insurance will be charged at current costs.  (Jersey, Guernsey and the Irish Republic are considered ‘international’ destinations).

International carriage charges are calculated by weight.  On receipt of your order, we will advise you as to any additional carriage and insurance costs that may be required.

Due to various postal restrictions, we cannot send dangerous or flammable products:  glues or cleaners to international destinations.

Delivery schedule

We pride ourselves on our rapid service, and aim to pack and despatch your goods within 24 hours from the time that your order is received by us.  During peak seasonal demands there may be a short delay in the despatch of your order, so please allow slightly extra time for delivery.  All orders are processed from Monday to Friday only.

Back orders

If your item is not in stock, you will be contacted by email or telephone, with the option to reserve, replace or cancel your order.

Tax charges

For orders made from the UK or the European Union, UK VAT at the current legislated rate added. All other orders are VAT free.

Returns policy

Your rights to return goods are protected under the EU Distance Selling Directive which can be found at http://www.hmso.gov.uk/si/si2000/20002334.htm

If you want to return an unwanted product, this must be returned to us in its original, unopened condition.  All unwanted goods must be returned to us within 14 days of the date of receipt.  We will then refund the money paid to us for the returned product.  (Postage charges cannot be refunded.) We aim to keep this process as simple as possible. These terms do not affect your statutory rights.

Exchanges

To obtain an exchange, the goods must be returned intact, in their original packaging, within 14 days of receiving the goods.  Please enclose a note which clearly shows your name, address, contact telephone number along with an indication of the replacement goods that you require.

Faulty products

If a product is faulty, we will replace the item or refund the product cost in full. You will need to notify us of any defects within 7 days of receiving the goods. These terms do not affect your statutory rights.

Refund Policy in the light of lost parcels

We do our best to ensure your goods arrive on time and in good condition. However very occasionally due to areas outside of our control parcels do go missing.  If this happens we will investigate fully and if it is found that the parcel has been lost in transit for reasons that cannot be determined we will work with you to provide replacement goods or if unavailable provide an appropriate refund. Please note that investigating a loss can take time. Royal Mail actually specify they will not consider an item lost unless it has been 15 days past its expected arrival date *(vii) Items sent by 1st Class, 2nd Class and Royal Mail Signed For™ are not classed as lost until 15 working days after the due date.

We would hope to be able to resolve the issue before this time but please understand that it could take this long to resolve the matter and supply either replacements or a refund.
