Any products where we don’t have stock shouldn’t show on the website and also the amount of stock available will show on the product page. However there maybe occasions where an item that is out of stock slips through. If this happens you will be notified and provided a full refund for that item.

Q. How do I know my order has been placed?

You’ll receive an Email within a few minutes after confirming your order to let you know we’ve received it.

Q. I want to reorder an item I bought previously, but I can’t find it, why?

Hopefully we’ve sold out because the product is overwhelmingly popular and we’ll be getting more in stock shortly! However sometimes, products are discontinued by suppliers and we simply can’t get a hold of them anymore.


Q. How long will it take for my order to be dispatched?

As we offer such a huge range of products, we simply can’t store it all in one warehouse. Therefore we often have to order items in specifically from our other warehouses and we’ll display the number of working days it will take us to receive it, pack it and send it to you, just below the “Add to Cart” button.

Q. Once it’s been sent, How long will it take to be delivered?

Our standard UK delivery can take up to 5 working days to be delivered. Our Express UK delivery can take up to 3 working days to be delivered.

International orders usually take 7-10 working days to be delivered but this can be extended due to local customs laws and practices. Please contact us if you would like more information.

These delivery timeframes are estimates and orders may be delivered before or after this time. We try our best to ensure all orders are delivered within these timeframes but there may be issues outside of our control which result in your order arriving late.

Q. How much is delivery?

Standard delivery is just £2.59

Express UK Delivery is £3.95

European & North America Delivery is £3.95

International Delivery is £6.95

Q. Who will deliver my item?

We choose the best carrier depending on a number of different things. Therefore your item may be delivered by specialist carrier companies but you’ll be advised of who that company is when your order is dispatched.

Q. How do I know where my order is?

For UK orders you will receive tracking information via Email and you can access them in the orders section of your account.

For International/European orders, we may not get the tracking number. If we have the information provided, then we'll include it in your dispatch Email.

Q. Only part of my order has arrived?

Occasionally we may separate orders, due to weight, size or if there is a significant delay in receiving part of your order. We’ll do our best to keep you updated in any instance this happens. You will NOT be charged any additional costs for separate deliveries.
