When you place an order with us, you are making an offer to buy goods. We will send you an e-mail to confirm that we have received your order. Your offer and these terms together with the item description will form the contract between us. Your order is accepted by us when we send e-mail confirmation to you that we've dispatched that product to you (the "Dispatch Confirmation E-mail"). That acceptance will be complete at the time we send the Dispatch Confirmation E-mail to you. Any products on the same order which we have not confirmed in a Dispatch Confirmation E-mail to have been dispatched do not form part of that contract.

How to Place an Order

After selecting the item you wish to purchase you will be shown an 'Add to Basket' button. The item will be added to your shopping basket once this button is pressed. You can then continue shopping or click on the 'Checkout' button to pay. After selecting which payment method you prefer you will be forwarded to that processors web site for payment. You are also welcome to place your order by phone on weekdays. We regret that we cannot discount orders placed by phone.

Delivery

We deliver to the UK and Northern Ireland Only.

We are pleased to offer free delivery on everything we sell.

The delivery service will vary by product weight. Most orders will be dispatched the same or the next working day by Royal Mail. Valuable or heavy items may be dispatched by a tracked method which will require an adult signature. If you require a different service please contact us before buying. If you need your item to leave the same day it?s a good idea to call before buying to confirm that this is possible - it usually is, but occasionally it may not be. Please note that our post is collected at 15.00 each day (Monday to Friday)

We always confirm via email that your order has shipped.

Non-Delivery

Genuine postal losses are rare in the UK. Experience has shown us that in most cases items are returned to us by the Post Office as uncollected when buyers have reported items as undelivered. Please check with your local delivery office before contacting us about non-delivery. Where items are returned to us we will contact you and a further Postage and Handling charge will be made before items can be redelivered.

Where an item is lost during delivery we will dispatch a replacement product following confirmation from you that you have made some simple checks with your local Royal Mail delivery office. We will report the loss to the carrier who will contact you to confirm the circumstances.

Cover for Postal Losses and Damage

We offer FREE cover against loss or damage in transit for UK buyers. In the event that your item is lost or damaged in the postal system we will replace the item free of charge (see details above). In the event that we are out of stock of that item we will refund your purchase cost. We may ask for photographs of any damage. For missing items you must wait until 10 postal days after dispatch has elapsed before claiming a replacement product. If the Item subsequently turns up we may ask you to return it to us at our cost. A simple Check must be made at your local Royal Mail Sorting Office prior to any claim.
