Notifications and Delivery Updates

All notifications from us about your order will be sent by email to the address shown in the billing address section of your account profile.

Sales Tax

Prices shown do not include tax. UK sales tax at the prevailing rate is applicable on all orders shipping within the EU. Tax is chargeable on the shipping cost component of orders for zero-rated goods.

Methods of Payment

We only accept payments by direct Bank Transfer. Our bank details are shown on the ‘payments’ page of the website.

Delivery Charges

We have a flat rate charge of £6.00 plus VAT for deliveries in mainland UK including London and the Scottish Highlands.

Delivery Locations

Currently we can only deliver within mainland UK and cannot deliver to the Channel Islands, Northern Ireland or The Isle of Man.

Delivery Method

For quantities less than a pallet load we generally use the Next Working Day parcel service operated by DPD. This is our preferred service, however we reserve the right to arrange delivery using an alternative method e.g. post, direct parcel service, or our own vehicle.

Cut Off Time for Next-Day Delivery

Our cut-off time for next working day delivery is 12:00 noon. Orders received after this time will most likely be sent the following day and all orders placed on Friday will be delivered the following Monday.

Consignment Tracking

After placing your order, DPD will contact you using the email address you entered in your profile to confirm the delivery date. On the day of delivery, they will send you another email confirming the one-hour time slot for your delivery.

Changing your Delivery Arrangements

If you cannot receive the delivery at the allotted time, you can use links in the emails from DPD to access their ‘Predict’ delivery tracking website. Here you can instruct DPD to change the delivery day (within a 5 day window) or upgrade to a guaranteed a.m. delivery for a small fee. You can also instruct them to leave the order with a neighbour, or in a safe place, but please note DPD will not do this unless you explicitly instruct them to via the Predict website.

Collecting your order from DPD

If you receive a card through the door about a failed delivery, you have the option to collect the order from the nearest DPD depot. You’ll find a location map and route instructions on the Predict website. You must take 2 forms of ID with you, one of which must be a photo-ID, plus a utility bill to confirm your occupancy or ownership of the delivery address.

Your Right to Cancel

Under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations you may cancel your order for any reason from the time of purchase up to 14 days following the day on which you receive the goods. Cancelled items must be returned to us undamaged and unmarked and ideally in the original packaging. We will then refund you the price you have paid for the goods and standard delivery costs. Please note that we cannot refund the cost of any additional service provided by us in connection with your purchase, such as a special delivery service.
