Making A Purchase Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

We accept credit card payment. If you are shopping from North America or anywhere else, place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to US Dollars or your own currency.

We accept Visa and Mastercard. We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Backordered items are not charged until they are shipped. You may send your credit card information via phone, fax, snail mail or pay via the HSBC secure web-site.

We ship by post or courier depending on the weight and size of the order. If we send by courier you will need to sign for the delivery when it arrives. Please give a delivery address where you, or someone on your behalf, will be able to receive the goods during the day.

When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
Shipping And Handling Mainland UK carriage and packing charge is a standard £3.95. Orders can be shipped to most overseas destinations and we charge a standard £5 for EU destinations and £10 for destinations in the Rest of the World. For heavy or bulky items we reserve the right to charge carriage at cost. If this applies we will contact you before despatch to get your approval to the extra charge. We may be able to offer next-day delivery in some cases. If you require this please ring our office on 01992 452980.
Delivery Schedule We endeavour to hold stock of all items and to despatch your order as soon as possible. If we do not have sufficient stock it may, in the worst case, take up to 28 days for delivery.
Back Orders If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.
Tax Charges All prices include VAT at 17.5% where applicable.
Credit Card Security For your increased security, payments by Credit and Debit cards are processed for us by HSBC bank on their secure website. We do not see any of your card details which you enter and they are not stored on any of our computers.
