FAQ & Delivery Charges

How much will I be charged for delivery?

Our standard charge for deliveries to Mainland UK is £4.68, no matter how many items you order. However, if you spend more than £50.00 then delivery is free! For overseas orders postage is calculated after you order, based on the weight. You will receive an email with the revised shipping charge and we will not proceed with your order until you have confirmed that the charges are acceptable.

What if I order something which is out of stock?

We do maintain an extensive stock of the products on our website. However, inevitably with such a range of items we may be out of stock of an item you have ordered. This is why we ask customers to allow up to 28 days for delivery.

How can I place my order?

You can place your order via our website or by telephone. We use secure encoding if you choose to enter your card details online. However, if you prefer to telephone us to provide your payment details we have given that option. Please select the 'Telephone option' (for UK orders only). On receipt of your order we will telephone you prior to dispatch to take your payment details.

On occasions customers do inadvertently select the 'telephone order' drop down. Please don't worry if you have. You will not receive the normal screen to enter your card details, but we will telephone you on receipt of your order.

Why have I not been asked to enter my payment details?

You have either chosen the 'telephone order' screen or accidentally clicked on that. Please don't worry. We will contact you to arrange to take these details, by telephone. Should you wish to enter your payment details via the website, please re-submit your order, marking the 'additional informaton' section with the order number of the duplicate you originally entered.
