Under the distance selling regulations, cancellation by phone can not be accepted. If you cancel your order by email, you must send it to a valid address and should request a read receipt to confirm delivery. Sending an email and/or receiving an automated reply is no guarantee the email has been received by us.

We consider 7 working days to be a reasonable time in which to return the goods to us and you should use an appropriate delivery method to ensure the products reach us within this time period.

In the event goods are unwanted or ordered in error the Company will (at its discretion) offer to accept a return of the products with a 25% restocking fee applied. If the goods are being returned for reasons that are not the fault of the Company any refund given will not include the postage and packing charges. If the products have been used or the packing has been opened and/or are not in the original condition (this excludes packaging added by us and used to protect the goods during transit), we are unable to issue a full refund and you will be liable for any charges and reasonable administration costs incurred by us.

We do not accept returns for goods/items that have been used unless they are faulty and within the guarantee period. If this is the case, after investigation to confirm the fault, we will either replace the item or return it to the manufacturer for repair. If no fault is found or we believe the item was deliberately damaged after being delivered and signed for, you will be liable for any charges incurred by us including a reasonable administration fee.

If we are unable to accept the item(s) for return (fall outside the 7 working days, the items are not faulty or have been used etc.), you will be responsible for the full cost of returning the items. This includes any collection or dispatch charges incurred by us and reasonable administration fees. Payment of these fees must be made before we can return the item(s) to you.

    Credit/Debit card chargebacks

    When you contact your credit card company to report a transaction as unknown or not authorised - this is known as a "chargeback".

    We supply the name of the website address to your credit card company. however, the name that will appear on your statement for any credit card transaction made with us may be altered by them to meet their own specifications. It is very important you do not contact your credit card company and report this transaction as unknown to you if the order has been delivered and signed for. If you feel there is a problem with your order you must contact us in writing (letter or email) to resolve the problem. Cancelling the transaction with your credit card company will be considered theft or fraud and your details will be passed to the relevant authority for further investigation. This may result in us making a claim against you, could damage your credit rating and/or affect your ability to buy online in the future.

    If a transaction is charged back to you and proof of delivery is available, we reserve the right to either:

    A) Re-charge the credit card to used to make the payment for the full amount, plus an additional reasonable administration charge. The administration charge will depend upon the amount of time we need to spend resolving the problem.


    B) Issue a claim via the appropriate legal service - This may affect your credit rating and leave CCJ's against you. If you request a chargeback after a refund has been issued, you will be liable for a any charges we incur plus a reasonable administration cost. Credit card protection regulations ensure your account is automatically credited when a chargeback is issued. If a refund has already been made, a further chargeback will be considered theft or fraud and appropriate legal action may be taken against you.

    Business Accounts

    If you are a business customer, then from time to time we may agree to open an account for you, enabling you to pay in arrears. Where you hold an account, then upon or following the dispatch of products, we will send to you an invoice for payment of the price of those products, and you will pay such invoice within 30 days of the date of the invoice. Accounts will be subject to such credit limits as we may notify to you from time to time. If you do not pay any amount properly due to us under or in connection with these terms of sale on time, we may: charge you interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per year above the base rate of HSBC Bank Plc from time to time (which interest will accrue daily until the date of actual payment, be compounded quarterly, and be payable on demand); or claim interest and statutory compensation from you pursuant to the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.


    All "physical" products are dispatched by courier or post, are insured and require a signature. We are unable to issue delivery instructions that do not make allowance for the delivery agent to obtain a valid signature. This includes leaving the parcel at a different address, in a garden shed etc. It is the customers responsibility to ensure someone is available to sign for the consignment at your specified delivery address. If no one is available, the courier will normally leave a calling card, but as we have no control over the courier company this can not be relied upon or guaranteed. If a card is left, please follow any instructions given and contact the depot specified A.S.A.P to re-arrange delivery or collection. Orders can only be delivered to the address specified with the order.

    It is the customers responsibility to ensure someone is available to sign for the parcel. We send an email to the address specified with your order when your order is dispatched. You should ensure you can receive emails sent from any of our domain names (these can be found on our website) as we can not accept responsibility for emails that do not arrive or are filtered by your ISP.

    If the courier suspects the person signing for the order may not be the correct person or does not meet any other restrictions (such as under age) they may ask for proof of ID. If suitable ID can not be provided the parcel may be returned to us and the customer liable for additional delivery and any reasonable administration charges.

    Any delivery date specified by the customer can not form part of the contract. We will always attempt to meet any delivery requirements but all orders are delivered on a best effort basis.

    Parcels that can not be delivered or remain uncollected for the holding period specified by the courier (usually 5 working days) will automatically be returned to us. A reasonable administration charge and any costs made to us by the courier will apply to all orders returned due to non delivery or collection. Part of the initial delivery charge is often subsidised by us but redelivery will be charged at full cost.

    If your parcel appears to be damaged on delivery, you must refuse it. When you sign for your parcel, you are indicating the parcel was delivered in good order. If you accept the parcel but on further inspection decided the items where damaged you must contact us within a reasonable time period - usually 24 hours after taking delivery.

    We insure your parcel against loss or damage while in transit. If we need to report your parcel as missing or damaged, after it has been signed for, the courier company may wish to inspect or investigate the situation before agreeing to provide compensation. We are unable to resend your order until the courier company has concluded their investigation and authorised us to resend the order.

    We reserve the right to pass on any additional charges in full made to us by the delivery agent or courier. Reasons for this may include but are not limited to:

    • Incorrect address specified at time of order.

    • Redelivery to a different address.

    • Incorrect shipping option selected at the time of order.

    Guaranteed Next Day Delivery

    Orders must be placed by 3.00 pm and excludes the following postcodes: AB31-56, BF (All), GY (All), HS (All), IM (All), IV (All), JE (All), KA27-28, KW (All), PA20-80, PH15-50, TR21-25, ZE (All)

    Damaged Goods

    All goods are checked before dispatch, but in the unlikely event of any items in your order being damaged, you should notify us within a reasonable time period, usually 24 hours after signing for the goods, giving details of the damaged items. In order to speed up the process of getting the damaged items replaced we may ask you to provide photographic evidence, usually electrically by email, to confirm the damage. If you are unable to provide photographs we will arrange to collect the items from you and have them returned to us for inspection. If you prefer this option, someone must be available at the collection address when the courier arrives and the items must be appropriately packaged. Once the products arrive back to us, we will inspect them to confirm the damage and replace as appropriate. If we conclude the items have been damaged deliberately in order to avoid the cost of returning products ordered in error, you will be liable for any costs incurred by us, a reasonable administration fee and the full cost of returning the products to you.

    Missing Items

    If you believe that there may be item(s) missing from your order, please contact us within 2 working days of signing for your order and we will investigate.
