Delivery charges vary according to the type of goods ordered.
From time to time and for certain goods we offer a free delivery service, when this is not available delivery charges are outlined under “Delivery Options” on each product page and calculated at the checkout process. For some locations within the UK and overseas we may need to obtain a delivery cost for you.

We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions (unless this is caused by our negligence). We will aim to deliver the goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed. If delivery is delayed due to any cause beyond our reasonable control, the delivery date will be extended by a reasonable period and we will contact you to arrange an alternative time.
You must be able to accept delivery of the goods within 5 working days from the date they arrive from the manufacturer. You will be notified by email when your goods are ready to despatch.

The cost of storage will be set at 2% of the invoice total and will be charged on a weekly basis thereafter.
Risk of damage or loss of the goods passes to you at the time of delivery, if you fail to take delivery at the agreed time, the time is when we tried to deliver.
