Ordering through the website is your best option, this way you get an order confirmation right away, and if there's any mistake, you have time to rectify them before the order is dispatched. Online orders are also free delivery over £75.00 to UK mainland too (there are some exemptions) whilst orders over the phone do NOT qualify for free delivery. Online orders also qualify for next day delivery (99% of the time, there are some exceptions during very busy days) if ordered before 1pm. If you are ordering over the phone, and do not have the correct part numbers, you are responsible for ensuring you are asking for and ordering the correct parts. Phone orders with parts that are incorrect, are your responsibilty to return, as we have many customers asking for incorrect parts and wanting them swapped over for free, this is not possible.
We deliver to all UK mainland and Northern Ireland addresses provided that the address to which your payment card is registered is also present on your order. All deliveries must be signed for on receipt. You should retain the invoice included with your goods. We do not deliver to Post Office (P.O.) boxes or shipping agent addresses.
There is a charge for delivery and when you add products to your Shopping Basket, the appropriate delivery charge will be added automatically. You will always be able to see this charge before submitting your order, if your order is over the amount of £75.00 then you will qualify for free UK Mainland postage. Exclusions apply
Deliveries will be carried out by out by our nominated delivery agent and will take place within three to five days of order receipt. You will receive an email confirmation when your order has been dispatched with a unique shipping number which allows you to track the status of your delivery.

There are no deliveries on Sunday. You should identify any special delivery requirements at the time of placing your order.
If you are not available to sign for the delivery when the delivery agent attempts to deliver they will ask you to contact them to arrange a suitable alternative date and time, once they leave a card for you this is out of our control and is down to you to re-arrange delivery with the courier. If you do not do this, and the parcel comes back to us, then you will have to pay a re-delivery charge or we will refund the order.
