Changes will apply to any subsequent orders received but once your order has been confirmed, we will not be able to make any changes.
We promise that for any item you purchase from our website:
We have the right to sell the item to you;
The item will correspond with the description we have given; and
The item will be of very good quality.
We also promise that any service we provide to you will be provided with reasonable skill and care.
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the products that appear on the website. All sizes and measurements are approximate, however we do make every effort to ensure they are as accurate as possible.
We will take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices of items appearing on the website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. We reserve the right to refuse orders where product information has been incorrectly published, including prices and special offers.
Prices are subject to change without notice. Prices are shown in £ Sterling and are inclusive of UK VAT.
Goods are subject to availability. As there is a delay between the time when the order is placed and the time when the order is accepted, the stock position relating to particular products may change. If an item you have ordered becomes out of stock before we accept the order we shall notify you as soon as possible and you will not be charged for the out of stock items and you may cancel the entire order without charge. Substitute goods will not be supplied if the order is out of stock or unavailable.
Purchase of Products
When you place an order on our website we give you an Order Reference Number and details of the products you have ordered and we will send the same details to you in an email. We will send you a second email to confirm process your order. Acceptance of your order and the creation of a legally binding contract between us will only occur when we send you the second e-mail, which will contain details of how your products will be delivered to you. Alternatively, we may decline all or part of your order for any reason, in which case our second e-mail will tell you so.
Any discounts triggered by the entry of a promotional code will be applied when the order is accepted and will be detailed on the invoice.
We reserve the right to refuse an order. Non-acceptance of an order may, for example, result from one of the following:
The item ordered being unavailable from stock
Our inability to obtain authorisation of payment
The identification of an error within the item information, including price or promotion
If there are any problems with your order we shall contact you.
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is within our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the website.
You may cancel your order in accordance with your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations.
Delivery must be to an address in mainland UK only (England, Scotland and Wales). Deliveries to Devon, Cornwall, Dyfed, Powys, Isle of Wight, Grampian and Scottish Highland are at additional cost. You will be informed of any additional cost prior to despatch of your order and you may cancel the order if you consider these additional charges are unreasonable. You may be entitled to free delivery and this will be shown at the checkout stage.
A signature is required on delivery and you or someone authorised by you will need to accept the delivery. In case of delivery to certain locations such as hospitals, airports, hotels, ships and other business premises, the signature of any person authorised to accept delivery on behalf of the organisation shall be accepted as proof of delivery.
Should delivery be refused at the delivery address and re-requested for another date, we may make an additional charge for the second delivery. It is your responsibility to ensure the correct number of packages as shown on the delivery consignment note have been delivered. Shortages must be noted on the delivery consignment note and you should notify us of shortages within seven days of delivery. If packages look damaged on delivery we recommend the contents be inspected before accepting and signing for the delivery.
We use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that delivery is made around the delivery time advised, but delays to deliveries may be beyond our control. Incorrect delivery address details may cause delays in delivery, so please ensure that you have included full delivery address details, including accurate postcode and your daytime contact telephone numbers and e-mail address so we can notify you in the event of a delivery delay.
We deliver 5 days a week - Monday to Friday. We do not normally deliver on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays. We endeavour to deliver within 30 days of order confirmation unless agreed otherwise, but do not accept liability for any failure to deliver within that time. Orders received on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays and orders received after 1pm on weekdays, will be processed the next working day.

In assessing your request for goods or services, we may use your information for the purposes of the prevention and detection of fraud.

We will arrange collection of the goods at our cost or reimburse your reasonable costs of return.
If you are returning an item for any other reason you must pay the costs of returning the item to us.
Any item you intend to return must be kept in good condition whilst in your possession and is best returned with the same packaging as it was delivered. You must take care to ensure that returned items are repackaged correctly so as to avoid damage or loss of parts in transit.
We will not accept return of an item if it has been altered by applying chemicals or paints to the surfaces or by altering or customising it in any way that could be deemed as you using or treating the item as your own.
