Further Information

In addition, our warehouse is closed on Bank/Public Holidays so orders placed on these days will not be despatched until the following working day.

Stock Indication

If an item is available for purchase there should be good stock levels of it at our Warehouse and it should be available for immediate despatch in our normal delivery timescales. However our stock status shown on our website is updated every 24 hours and actual stock at our warehouse may vary to that shown on the site.

Should you order an item that shows as available but it has indeed become out of stock, we will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible and inform you of the date that we expect the item to become available.

Products that are not available at point of order

In some cases you may find that an item you wish to purchase as part of your order is not available. At this point you have two options:

  • Place the order on hold until all items are available and deliver your order all at once
  • Ship available items at point of order and send the unavailable item(s) separately when it becomes available, however this method may incur separate shipping charges for each item despatched.
