Delays – Part Shipment
On rare occasions certain items will go temporarily out of stock or may be discontinued at short notice by our suppliers. We will notify you via email if this is the case and will offer you the opportunity to keep your items on back order, arrange alternative products or offer a full refund. In the event that we cannot send all your items in one shipment we will part ship your order so that you receive the majority of your selected items as quickly as possible. The remainder of your order will be dispatched within 24 hours of receipt of the goods from our supplier.
During busier times there may be a slight delay in processing your order.
Most UK orders are sent via our couriers within standard delivery times. We cannot be held responsible for items delayed in the postal system, or any industrial action taken by our nominated couriers as this beyond our control.

Unfortunately, severe weather conditions can disrupt our couriers from time to time. This can affect the services we offer and will affect the usual guarantee of service levels that are offered by our couriers. Naturally, couriers will always put the safety of its drivers and ancillary staff first over performance targets. Couriers do make every effort to put in place contingency plans when there is adverse weather. However, delays and back logs do occur from time to time.
