Terms & Conditions

Making a purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the Shopping Cart. After you have finished your selection, click on ‘Checkout’ and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

If you have made a mistake in your order and cannot correct it in the Shopping Cart, contact us so we can correct the mistake.

When you receive confirmation of your order, this is to indicate that we have also received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

Pre-order

Items may appear with £0.00. This is when the manufacturer has not yet released a recommended retail price (RRP) for that product. As soon as we receive this it will be updated on our website and you will be informed via an email of the price for that item if you have pre-ordered it.

All pre-ordered items have estimated prices and release dates for which are subject to change. We will do our best to notify you of any changes to your pre-order purchases.

Payments

We only charge for items when they are shipped (unless PayPal is used, in which case the full amount will be charged at the time of ordering). However, we will obtain authorisation from your card issuer for the full order amount when the order is initially placed. We accept card payments by Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Delta, and PayPal.

Pre-orders

Items pre-order will not be charged until the items arrive in the shop and are ready for dispatch. If your order includes pre-order items (those that are currently not in stock) then the following will apply:

  • Items in stock will be shipped immediately (orders including items shown as expected 2-3 days will be held until all those items are in stock and then shipped).
  • If your order includes other pre-order items, these items will be dispatched as they become available. Shipping will be charged at our normal rate on each dispatch.
  • Occasionally, at our discretion, we may hold products until others are in stock to minimise the shipping costs.
  • For orders paid for via PayPal, the order will not be shipped until all items are in stock.
