Frequently Asked Questions
When will my order be delivered and stock availability
We have a lead time of approx 5 WORKING DAYS before shipping but endeavour to deliver it sooner where possible. From November onwards lead times are circa 5 working days unless advised but we do ship quicker than this wherever possible, it's prudent to contact us BEFORE ordering if you are time sensitive
It is also advisable to check directly for full product availability as at busy times we do run out and the site may not be up to date as we concentrate on shipping orders rather than bashing keyboards at the busiest time of the year .
How Much is Shipping?
Standard Shipping is caluclated based on weight and destination - anywhere in the world. UK shipping is £9.95 on orders below £200 net and free shipping if above £200 FOR THE FIRST 20 KILO THEN may be added at cost ,Overseas shipping is offered at cost. We are happy for overseas customers to arrange their own shipping. Please remember you will be responsible for customs clearance and associated costs.
shipping to the highlands and islands of the UK is apprx is £14 for the highlands and £20 for Northern Ireland subject to change without notice . We do not accept PayPal on any orders that are not uk mainland ( ie the highlands and Ireland ) due to shipping being quoted individually and PayPal costs there in
Domestic UK shipping is with FEDEX who we have found to be the most consistent and reliable for loss/damages etc while not being the cheapest ( we have trialled many many different carriers )
