Can I choose a different delivery address to my billing address?

Yes, you can choose to change the delivery address during the checkout process. This is especially helpful if you know you are not going to be at home to sign for the delivery, then you can specify an alternative address such as a work address, or if it is for a gift it can be sent straight to the recipient!

Do I need to be there to sign for my delivery?

Yes if the item is larger - we use FedEx as our secure courier delivery service and you must specify an address where someone will be present to sign for the delivery. If you know you will not be at home, please use the “change delivery address” option during checkout which enables you to have your parcel delivered to a neighbour, work or business address.  FedEx should re-attempt delivery but should there be several failed attempts and the parcel is returned to us.  Smaller items are sent on a tracked service with the Royal Mail - this services allows parcels to be left in a safe place - let us know if you have a safe place you'd like the postman to leave the parcel.

What if I need help with my order, can I place an order over the phone?

Simply call us on 01207 693959 (Monday -Friday during office hours 9.00 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.) and a member of our team will be able to advise you.

Can I order an item that is temporarily out of stock?

No, if something is temporarily out of stock it cannot be ordered, as we do not take payment for items we do not have in stock in our warehouse.  Send an e-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we can e-mail you back when the item is back in stock.

Does the delivery note show the item price?

Yes but if what you have ordered is a present just let you know when you get the check out and we’ll make sure that the gift recipient doesn’t find out how much you’ve spent.

Transport Liability

Orders will be sent to the delivery address that you specify when placing your order. We cannot be held responsible if this delivery address is incorrect. We cannot take responsibility for a lost or stolen parcel if you request it is left somewhere rather than being signed for at your address.
