The prices stated on this website include the cost of carriage to most UK postcode districts. However, we incur additional costs for delivery of certain products to some postcodes, these being remote areas. If we do incur additional costs we reserve the right to levy the additional charge and increase our lead times, which would also be necessary as specialist hauliers may need to be engaged.

You can then choose to continue with your order by paying the additional delivery charge or you may cancel your order at that point.

We do not normally deliver on Saturdays, but where we agree to a Saturday delivery, an additional charge will be levied and this will be made clear at the time of placing your order. We do not deliver at all on Sundays or public holidays. We recommend that you do not arrange any third party ancillary services (eg. installation) until goods are delivered. We cannot be held responsible for unnecessary expense incurred in this regard where the delivery ESTIMATE has been relied upon but not met.

In most cases, you will be contacted prior to that estimated delivery date to notify you of the exact day on which your delivery will be made.

If you miss the delivery of your order, you may incur a re-delivery charge as we have met our original delivery obligation with our first attempted delivery. If this is the case we will of course notify you, prior to the re-delivery, of any charges that may apply.
