Signature Required

It is your responsibility to ensure that someone is available to sign for the delivery, we will not leave your order without a signature confirming the goods have been delivered. If you are not at home when our courier delivers your order, they will leave a card for you to call them to arrange a more convenient delivery time.

Alternatively we will deliver to your work address or to a neighbour with prior agreement with yourself.

Credit Card Fraud Safety

We take internet fraud extremely seriously, your protection is of paramount importance to us.  Orders that are over £200 in value will only be delivered to the billing address, this is a security measure used in conjunction with our fraud checks to give our customers added fraud protection.  An additional fraud check for orders over £200 is that we may ask you to provide a utility bill proving your address details, we realise this may be inconvenient, however it is a check recommended by our banking partners to prevent credit card fraud.  This check is in place for your protection.

  • All items are subject to availability.
  • If any items you order are not available immediately we may dispatch those items that are available and send the remainder of your order under separate carriage (you will not be charged a second delivery charge in these circumstances). If this affects your order we will confirm you are happy to proceed with your order by e-mail or telephone.
