We do aim to do this quickly, but we may need to email and ask you for additional information which proves you are a genuine retailer; this could be a copy of your shop lease agreement, pictures of your shop and a copy of your company registration for example. If you do not get an email from us within 48 hours, check your spam/junk folder in case correspondence has gone there. Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before registering with us.

3) Payment and Delivery

All payments are Performa, so we won’t dispatch any goods until we have received payment. Payment can be made at check out, either by credit/debit card. If you wish to send a cheque or make a payment by bank transfer, please select this option at check out, although goods won't be dispatched until money has cleared to our account. Our bank details can be found here. If you choose to pay by bank transfer, no payment is required until goods are dispatched.

Once we have received your order, we will process and send as quickly as we can. When goods are dispatched, you will get an email from us telling you what has been dispatched. Goods are sent on a 24 hour service (Mon-Fri), so once you receive your dispatch email you know they will arrive the next working day (UK mainland). If your dispatch email comes late in the day, it is most likely goods will arrive the next working day. If the email comes in the morning, goods should arrive that day. We will of course try to send, when possible, goods the same day we receive your order. Orders placed after 2pm will be processed the following day as our courier arrives at 3pm.

If we cannot send all the goods you have ordered, we will keep the balance on back order and despatch as new stock arrives. You will not have to pay any additional carriage for this (UK Mainland Only), and if you prefer to cancel or add to this back order, you can. If the balance of goods outstanding is small, we may cancel the balance and either refund the money or put it on account for your next order. This will be confirmed on your dispatch email.

Don't worry if your order fails. It still logs in our system, so you won't have to place the order again. We will call you to make alternative payment arrangements.

Other Useful Things To Know

Where possible, we prefer customers to email enquiries. It is a much more efficient way for us to process enquiries, which leads to a quicker reply! Of course, should you need to call us on 00441618323050-1; we have a helpful and friendly sales team on hand to help you.

You can log into your account on-line and see your order status, print invoices and much more.

We recommend you regularly check our news section, what's new section and after logging in the stock up-dates and deletions page as we give important information about long term out of stock products and products which have been discontinued by the supplier.

Prices can change without prior notification, as can product deletions, so please regularly check into the website to make sure we are still selling the products you are.
