Making A Purchase
Making a purchase on our site is simple. Just browse our store and adding any items you wish to buy to the Shopping Cart. Having finished your selection,, please click 'Checkout' and you will be asked for details necessary to allow us complete your order.
Payment can be made using all major credit cards, debit cards and Paypal. Orders can also be made over the phone by calling us between the hours of 09.00 – 17.00 hrs (Mon – Fri) on 07743 790436. All payment information is treated with the utmost discretion and processed through our online merchant account bank. When a 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.
Credit Card Security
When the order is placed at our website, credit card numbers are encrypted using 128 bit encryption. They are not held in clear text on any web site.
Shipping & Handling
Your item will be professionally & carefully packed and despatched without delay. All orders received before 1.00pm are dispatched the same day (EXCLUDES WEEKENDS). Orders received after 1.00pm are sent the following day. Payment must be received before we can send the goods. Orders are not processed for shipment on weekends and holidays.
For delivery times, please see the "Delivery" TAB in the description on each product as different products have different delivery times.
PLEASE NOTE: As our products are of varying sizes and weights, we often use different carriers. ALL carriers require a signature upon delivery so if there is nobody at home during the week, please consider supplying an alternative address, i.e. a neighbours or work address perhaps. This alternative address MUST be given at time of placing your order to avoid an error in shipping. Certain items are sent direct from the manufacturers whom may use their own trucks as well as other carriers.
All items must be checked on delivery. We make sure all our parcels are well packaged and checked before they leave the stockroom. If, upon delivery, the box looks damaged or as if it might have been tampered with, you must refuse to accept it. What will happen is the courier will return the damaged item back to us (which is covered by our insurance) and we'll send you another one. We cannot be held responsible for damage claims after goods have been accepted.
If your item is not in stock, we can back order for you. However, we always contact you to advise you of the delay in shipment and offer you the choice of waiting, taking an alternative if available or making a refund if you prefer.
If for any reason you wish to cancel your order and return non-faulty goods please advise us in writing by completing our form online within 48 hours of receipt. The product must be returned to us within 14 days of the order being placed, in a re-saleable condition. (i.e. unused, unmarked and in original unmarked packaging) It is the responsibility of the customer to return the item and ensure the package has been reasonably protected in return transit. We will refund the full amount excluding our original true delivery charge (this varies depending on the goods ordered). This is applicable to orders sent on our free delivery promotion.
Please also note if the courier tries to deliver to you and leaves a card and you don't re-arrange delivery after 5 days, then the parcel will be returned to us and there will be an extra charge of a minimum of £12.95 for the return carriage.
This does not affect your consumer statutory rights.
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
