Turn around and back orders

We make every attempt to dispatch orders within 72 hours (Monday – Friday). However, when items are out of stock, there will be a delay. Amendments to orders may also cause a delay in shipping.

Where we elect to ship part orders and place items on back order, there is no delivery charge on the back ordered items. Orders including special finishes will be held until the order is ready to be dispatched as a complete order. When requested, these orders may be dispatched as a part order, but customers will incur a second delivery charge.

Delivery Charges

Please note, for all international orders, cost of delivery is calculated on weight and size of parcel. For this reason, delivery is calculated once goods have been picked and packed. A second payment for delivery costs will be taken from the card used to pay for the goods. If for any reason, cost of delivery exceeds the value we are allowed to take set by the card company, customers will be contacted and notified.

If we are not able to fulfil your order for any reason your payment card will be refunded.
