Making a purchase
This could not be easier. Just browse our Site, and click on any items that you wish to buy and put them into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on "Order" and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to satisfy the order.

We accept credit card payment via PAYPAL. If you are shopping from a country that does not use Sterling, just place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to your own currency.

We accept most credit cards. Although secure credit card transactions over the internet are extremely safe, you may prefer to contact us by phone, or post to make your purchase. All methods are entirely welcome!

Shipping And Handling
We charge postage at cost but add 70p for packaging and handling . VAT is chargeable on postage and on packaging and handling within the EEC.

Delivery Schedule
We dispatch your order as quickly as possible, usually on the next working day, though orders placed before noon may be dispatched the same day. The length of time it takes to get to you depends, of course, on the class and means of postage you choose and how far the package has to travel.

If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.

Tax Charges
For orders made from the UK or the European Union VAT at the UK standard rate where applicable. All other orders are VAT free.
