How much will it cost:

Why do parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland cost more to ship to:

How do you ship :
Most items are sent via Parcel Force on a 24hr courier. Smaller items are sent with the post office.
Where items are sent direct from manufacturers other carriers can be used.
How quickly do you dispatch:
Where orders are placed up until 2pm we aim to dispatch same day . This is our goal but during very busy periods this is not always possible, and orders will be dispatched the following day. Dispatch is subject to the product being stock.
What happens if you are out of stock:
We hold very large stocks of all the popular items but in busy periods we can sometimes run out for short periods. If this occurs and it looks like it will hold up the order for more than a couple of days we will contact you to advice of the delay and where possible suggest an alternative. We will part dispatch where possible so not to hold up the whole order.
What does 24hr carrier mean:
In terms of couriers 24hr mean the next working day. This does not include weekends or bank holidays. Saturday deliveries are available but do cost extra.
Is next working day day guaranteed:
In a word NO. Couriers do make mistakes, lorries can break down , parcels can be misrouted . Not all addresses are easy to find. Most couriers give a 99% next day success rate but no system is perfect.
What happens if it does not arrive:
You will receive an email from us on the day it is dispatched if you have not received the parcel 48 hours after that please give us a call or send an email and we will track the parcel and arrange to get the parcel to you ASAP
What happens if I am out :
The courier should leave a card to say he tried to deliver and details of the depo so they can be contacted to arrange re delivery when you are in.
What happens if the parcel is damaged:
If when the parcel is left you can see it is damaged please sign for it as NOT CHECKED or PARCEL DAMAGED . Please report and damaged goods to us within 48 hours so we can sort out replacements etc.
