You can place your order for goods online, by telephone or by post. As some of our items may be limited we request postal customers reserve stock before sending/making any payments. Online orders and telephone orders are reserved automatically at the time of order. If you send us a payment without first reserving stock, we may not be able to fulfil your order and in this case will return payment.
All orders are pending when submitted and are deemed not to have been accepted by us at that stage. Only when the goods are dispatched will the order have been accepted by us. For orders placed online, we will confirm that the goods have been dispatched by a separate e-mail. We reserve the right not to accept an order without reason and return any payment made.
All prices are listed in UK pounds sterling (GBP). Prices are subject to change at any time, as are any special offers/promotions. Prices and offers selected as part of your order will be honoured and not affected by any price/offer changes made subsequent to your order being placed.

Currency exchange rates are determined by your bank or card provider and you are recommended to confirm the prevailing rate before placing an order.
All postal payments are sent at your own risk. We cannot be held responsible for any payments that go missing in the post. We will return any incorrect payment methods received to the address supplied with the payment; if no address is included, then payment will be held until we are contacted.
Communication regarding orders placed online is made via e-mail so please ensure a valid working account is used and check your e-mail if you are expecting a message from us. If you use one of the free e-mail services such as “Yahoo” or “Hotmail” and are expecting an e-mail from us please check your “Bulk” or “Spam” folders as sometimes your mail program can hide our e-mails there.

Unfortunately, an occasion may arise when we may not be able to fulfil your order due to an incorrect stock level, simultaneous telephone order or other circumstances outside our control. On an occasion such as this, we will contact you to advise the situation and offer either a partial order, full cancellation of your order or supply a substitute item where available.
