If this is the case, we will contact you before shipping the goods. 

General Information

The website updates stock every 15 minutes to make sure that in most cases, the items you order will be in stock. However, in the event of an item being out of stock, we will contact you regarding this and give you an option to cancel or replace with an alternative.

Please note our office business hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, all order placed at the weekend will be processed and dispatched on a Monday.

Once your order has left our warehouse, the responsibility for them passes onto the carrier. However, we constantly monitor our carrier’s performance, so that you are assured of the best service at the most competitive rate. Damages and shortages must be notified within 24 hours. We also recommend that when signing for parcels, customers sign for the parcel as unchecked or damaged (if damaged) so that in the unlikely event there is a problem we can resolve this quickly and effectively.

Special note:

Please inform us, when ordering, if there will be no one available at your address to sign for goods when they arrive, as our courier will not deliver without a signature. If you miss the courier, please refer to your tracking link for details of what will happen next.  Your cooperation in this would be much appreciated.
