My Order

Is my item in stock?

  • Our site currently acts as an online catalogue and does not display live stock levels. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure the majority of items are in stock. Occasionally, we may need to order items from the manufacturer. This can take a few days.
  • If the item is going to take longer than a couple of days, or is found to be out of stock, we will contact you and will work to recommend a suitable alternative.

Where is my order?

  • You will receive an email when your order has been dispatched. Once dispatched, UK orders should arrive with you in 1 to 5 working days.
  • Customers will automatically receive a tracking number for their parcel. If this does not come through, you are welcome to contact us for further information

What happens when an item is on back order?

  • We work closely with our suppliers to ensure the majority of items are in stock. There may be some cases where we need to order an item from the manufacturer or where an item is out of stock. In cases where most of the items are in stock, these will be dispatched and the remaining item(s) will be placed on back order.
  • This means that they are being ordered from the manufacturer and will be sent out to you as soon as we receive stock.
  • We do not add an additional shipping charge for the second dispatch.
  • If the remaining item is going to take a while to arrive, or is found to be out of stock, we will contact you and will work to recommend a suitable alternative.


When do I pay for my Order?

  • Orders are charged at the time the order is placed.
  • If a back order is created for your order, we will not charge additional shipping
  • If an additional charge is required (ie. additional shipping or an exchange for a more expensive item) we will confirm you are happy for us to charge the same card you ordered with. If paying with PayPal, a request will be sent for the additional charge.
