Getting Your Order – Carriage and Delivery

UK orders

We will inform you as soon as we can if we are unable to fulfil your order

UK website orders over £100.00 + VAT are despatched carriage free to most parts of mainland UK by carrier or mail and orders under £100.00 + VAT incur a carriage, packing and handling charge of £6.95 + VAT (£8.34 inc. VAT)

All orders must be paid for with cleared funds and placed by noon, Monday to Friday, to qualify for same day despatch

Please note: PayPal’s eCheque feature allows customers to transfer money directly from their bank account to our PayPal account. eCheque payments differ from Bank Transfers, as they are not instant payments. eCheque payment funds require seven to nine working days after payment has been initiated to be cleared by PayPal – goods will not be released until those funds have been cleared by PayPal

Deliveries to islands, highlands and remote areas may incur additional carriage costs which will be charged separately prior to shipping

Larger items over 28kg or longer than 1m may incur a pallet or over-size item surcharge which will be charged separately separately prior to shipping

For goods from UK warehouses our carriers aim to deliver most orders within 2 to 4 working days. Goods from mainland European distribution warehouses can take 10 days or more. Our carriers do not offer next day services to highlands, islands or non-UK mainland addresses. Please allow 7 to 10 days for deliveries to Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Mann and other offshore and highland destinations

Our carriers will attempt delivery two or three times before returning the shipment to us – returned shipments will be available for collection around 14 to 21 days after the original shipment date. Please respond to all delivery advice cards promptly and be aware that deliveries will require a signature on receipt

Local orders may be delivered by our own transport and will require a signature on receipt

Some orders may be collected in person from Fleet in Hampshire or from Monacor and IMG Stageline in Bedfordshire without incurring a carriage, packing and handling charge, by prior arrangement which we will confirm by email

Please note that your order may be part shipped from various warehouses
