3 Our Contract with You

Our website pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.

We also accept orders by telephone. If you would like to order any products by telephone, please call 01978 280252 and one of our representatives will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us.

4 Order Acceptance 

After you place an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you confirming the products have been dispatched (dispatch confirmation), at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified. If you have already paid for the products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.

We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

We deliver our products to addresses in the UK and within the European Union.
