3. Order Placement via Website

Once all required products have been added to the online Shopping Cart you will need to Select the Shipping Country using the drop-down list. You must then Select Rate and will be offered the available delivery options.

International shipping rates are displayed as a guide only and to enable us to find the best fixed price for shipping based on the combination of items and delivery location all overseas orders are processed as quote requests. Once calculated a proforma invoice will be emailed for review and will include a link to finalise your order by entering your payment details.

UK shipping rates are also subject to weight, dimensions and delivery address restrictions but the vast majority of orders will be fulfilled using the selected service. Where this is not possible we reserve the right to charge the difference, if this leads to an addition of more than 10% of total order value you will be contacted for authorisation prior to despatch. You confirm your consent to this charge when you submit your order.

3.1 How to review your order
At checkout you will be given an opportunity to review your order. If you make an error in the order you place, please contact customer services on the contact details above as soon as possible, so they can advise.

We will send you an order confirmation email detailing and acknowledging the products you have ordered. This order confirmation email does not constitute an acceptance of your order.

3.3 When your order is accepted and your products are despatched
Order acceptance and completion of the contract between you and us will take place when you receive a despatch email, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order.

Non-acceptance of an order may be a result of one of the following:

If you are placing the order on the website and wish to pay by any means other than debit/credit card or Paypal please submit an enquiry and a proforma invoice will be emailed with details of how to pay.

For most products, if you choose to pay via your credit or debit card your payment will be authorised and payment only completed when we despatch your order, this excludes special order and customised products when it is completed at the time we place the order with our supplier. If paying by any other means we will verify funds have been received prior to despatch.

5. Returns

We understand that occasionally you may wish to return something and when this happens we want to assure you of our full help and co-operation. To enable us to process your returns/warranty quickly and efficiently we ask you to carry out the following procedures:

6. VAT

VAT is applicable at the standard UK rate on all orders delivered to a UK postal address, this applies even if the invoice address is international.

The order confirmation email and subsequent invoice will itemise VAT for all product lines and delivery.

Where you have requested delivery to a Non-UK address, the products and the delivery service will be zero-rated i.e. not subject to UK VAT however there will be local duties and taxes payable prior to delivery. See further details below.

7. Import Duty and Tax Payments and Customs - International orders only

Products delivered to destinations outside the UK may be subject to taxes, fees, customs duty, levies or other charges as a result of local legislation or customs formalities. These charges are calculated by our shipping agent and the recipient of the products, which may not be the person placing the order, will typically receive a separate request for payment of these charges when the goods arrive in the country of destination. If you’re ordering products to be delivered to someone else, please ensure they’re aware that they’ll be responsible for these additional charges. Payment by you or the recipient (as applicable) must be received by the relevant customs authority before delivery of the Products will be made.

Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be, so we are unable to offer any assistance on these processes. We advise that you check any customs formalities and the import charges applicable in any country before ordering products to be delivered there. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide you with information which we hold which relates to the product or order which you may need in order to arrange customs clearance.

You (or the recipient of the products if different) will be the importer for all international deliveries of the products. Therefore, before placing an order, it’s your responsibility to check that any products ordered comply with country, state and/or federal government import regulations, and that there are no local requirements or restrictions which may affect receipt of your order.

You agree that we will act on your behalf as exporter of the products and will complete export declarations in our own name on your behalf.

If an order is placed and restrictions that we were not aware of at the time the order was made are applied by the customs authority of the destination country, then we will cancel the order and return payment to you.

We, or our shipping agents, may request information from you in relation to customs formalities. You must respond to any request for information within 5 days of the request, or the order will be cancelled.

If the recipient wishes to return the product(s), they must request a refund of the customs duties and tax directly with their local customs office and must present proof of return. As the process varies by country and is subject to regular legislative amendments we can not provide any further advice on this.

8. Lead Times

We supply almost all products direct from our extensively stocked warehouse so, with the exception of special order and customised products where lead times will be specified within the product details, we endeavour to process orders within 1 to 2 working days on receipt. We can not guarantee same-day despatch although if your requirement is urgent please do contact us and, provided all items are available, we will endeavour to process as soon as possible and you have the option to upgrade to one of the premium delivery options.

Occasionally, some items will not be ex-stock and will be marked 'to follow' on the invoice and despatched immediately new stock arrives. You will only be charged once for shipping.

Delivery lead times to international addresses will vary according to destination but we will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that all products will be delivered within 30 days from the conclusion of the contract with us. In the event that your order has been despatched by us (as confirmed in the despatch confirmation e-mail) but has not arrived within the estimated delivery time range, please contact our sales team on the contact details above.

If delays outside of our control occur, we will make every effort to keep you informed.

9. Privacy

In accordance with our Privacy Policy, we may disclose your relevant personal information pertaining to your order, to other firms we or they work with (such as delivery service providers) in order to process, deliver your order to you, and to keep you informed of any updates regarding your order. To read more on how your personal data is going to be handled, read our full Privacy Policy.

10. Limitation of Liability

We accept liability only for items which are proved faulty by reason of our negligence. Such liability is limited to the price paid for the item and does not include any consequential loss.

11. Severance and Survival

If any part of these Terms and Conditions shall be found by a Court to be unlawful, void or unenforceable for any reason, then that provision shall be capable of being severed and separated from these Terms and Conditions and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any of the other provisions of these Terms and Conditions which shall all remain in force.

12. Entire agreement

You confirm that, in agreeing to accept these Terms and Conditions, you have not relied on any representation made to you other than those contained in these Terms and Conditions and you agree that you shall have no remedy in respect of any such additional representation. Your statutory rights are not affected by these Terms and Conditions.

13. Jurisdiction

These Terms and Conditions shall be subject to English law. All claims or disputes arising in relation to or in connection with any contract (any order for Products) under these Terms and Conditions shall be governed by English law.
