Q. How do I know if my order has been received?

A. You should receive an automatic email confirmation from us once your payment has been processed and a confirmation from either Sagepay or Paypal to confirm a successful transaction. VAT Invoices are emailed automatically, usually within 1 working day of your order having dispatched. Receipt of your VAT invoice is a definite indication that your goods have shipped.

If you do not receive any type of confirmation via email and are concerned whether or not we have received your order please telephone us on 01636 557421 or email us at and we will check we have received your order. If you have not received the appropriate confirmations or invoices it is most commonly due to a typo in your email address during the order process.

Orders received by us after 5pm will be processed on the next working day. Where orders are received at a weekend, they will be processed on the next working day ie Monday with the exception of a bank holiday (UK).

Q. What if any items I have ordered are out of stock?

A. We stock all of the items available in our online shop in large volumes and we update the stock levels on our site at regular intervals daily, so it is unlikely that we will not have what you have ordered. However occasionly we may have an unusually high demand in a short space of time for a particlular product which causes a temporary out of stock situation on specific items.

If this should ever happen, we will place it on back order for you and you will always be contacted with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait. We reserve the right to substitute out of stock items with those of a suitable equivalent of equal or higher value.

Q. How do I receive an invoice?

A. Your invoice is emailed to you once your goods have shipped. In the unlikely event that you do not receive an invoice or you require a copy invoice please just contact us quoting your order reference number and we will immediately issue another. Paper copy invoices are also available on request.

Q. What if I want to return items?

A. Our returns policy can be read here.

Q. Can I get better prices for larger quantities / regular orders?

A. If you are looking to order very large quantities or place orders on a regular basis of a particular item we may be able to offer further discounts. Please contact us to discuss your requirements in further detail.

Q. What if I can't find what I am looking for?

A. We endeavour to offer a wide spectrum of products and are adding to this on a daily basis. If however you do not find what you are looking for or have a specialist requirement that demands a bespoke solution please contact our experienced sales team who will be able to advise and recommend a suitable product.

Q. What happens if the delivery comes while I am out?

A. Your goods are shipped with a third party courier usually UPS or Truline. Unless you have specifically instructed us to leave your goods if you are out, no delivery will be made as a signature is required. Instead the carrier will put a card through the door to advise that a delivery has been attempted. It is your responsibility to then contact the courier to arrange a mutually convenient time for re delivery. If the courier is not contacted within 7 days they will return the goods to us. Should you then still require the goods we reserve the right to charge you a further delivery charge to compensate us for the extra costs we will have incurred. This will be the same as the original charge.

Q. How long will it take you to reply to my email?

A. We receive many email enquiries everyday but we do aim to deal with each one as they arrive. Sometimes if we are really busy it takes a little longer but you should always expect to receive a response within working day. If you want an immediate response, please do not hesitate to pick up the phone. We have several lines in with real people at the end of them and you won't find yourself stuck in a queue!
