Shipping & Returns Policy


Shipping Policy

We aim to ship all items as soon as payment is cleared. This means that items ordered and paid for online by 12 noon (UK time) Monday-Friday are usually dispatched on the same day. Items ordered and paid for after 12 noon or over the weekend are sent on the next working day.

We never charge excessive amounts for postage and packaging. Our P&P charges are made up of the Royal Mail charge for the service plus a small contribution towards the packaging materials, plus VAT, which we are legally obliged to charge.

Please note that orders are often too big for standard letterboxes.

Items can be reported missing  after 5 working days. For next working day items, claims may be made on the day.

Within the UK
Royal Mail do not consider items of 1st class post to be lost until 15 working days after posting. In the unlikely event of your  order being lost in the post, we have to wait until this time has elapsed before we can instigate a claim for the lost package. We always send a replacement, stock permitting, at the same time as we open a claim. Where stock does not permit a replacement to be sent, a full refund will be issued.

UK Customers
You are entitled to a 7 day cooling-off period under the Distance Selling Regulations. This means that, if you decide you do not want your items for any reason (other than faulty or damaged goods), you must tell us, in writing, within 7 days (maximum) of receiving your item that you do not want it. You will be asked to return the item to us within another 7 days (maximum) and in the same condition you received it in.

You are asked to return items to us by a postal service which includes sufficient insurance to cover loss or damage and we recommend that you use a tracking method such as recorded delivery. Please remember that items may be fragile so make sure that they are re-packed in the original packaging material (where possible) to prevent damage in transit. Failure to adhere to this condition may result in transit damage and this will result in a partial refund.
Refunds will be made via Sage Pay upon receiving the returned goods.

The cost of returning the items to us is the responsibility of the customer and this will NOT be refunded.
