For items available ex stock, on orders placed before 3.00pm, we aim to dispatch the same day for delivery on a next working day basis. Orders will usually be delivered by 5pm Monday - Friday on a next working day basis .

 Special Carriage Charges

Items over 1 metre in length will have a special carriage charge added to them for all deliveries. Unfortunately our couriers charge us a premium for all parcels over 1 metre and we feel it is more open to show this as a special carriage charge rather than increase the selling price of the item. The special carriage charges are clearly shown at the point where the quantity is being added. Only 1 charge will apply regardless of quantity. So you can order 1 or 1000 of the item and just 1 special carriage charge will be applied. If you order 2 separate items each with a special carriage charge, our checkout system will show both charges, however if you notify us we will remove the lesser charge from your bill.

Can I have my parcel delivered to another address?

You can choose to have your order delivered to an alternative address (ie not the card billing address). Please fill in the delivery address box with these alternative details when placing your order.

Proof of Delivery

Our carrier will only deliver to the address instructed so please ensure this address is accurate and that someone will be there to sign for it. For security reasons all deliveries must be signed for. If we are asked to leave the goods in a particular place due to nobody being available to sign for them (ie; leave in the porch, or with a neighbour) despatch of goods will be proof of your receipt. When you receive the delivery if it appears damaged you must mark this on the courier’s delivery note.

However, we also know that once in a while you may need to replace or cancel an order, or return an item. We will allow you to return any item within 14 days of receipt so long as it has not been fitted or used and is returned in the same reasonable condition as they were received. Take good care of the goods and repackage them securely if necessary. We reserve the right to deduct from a refund the relevant cost if the goods are returned damaged. 

We reserve the right to charge a handling or re-stocking charge for goods ordered as special order items. We will notify you if this applies before the goods are accepted back. All you need to do is contact us first by email on and we will issue a returns note which you should enclose with the returning goods. We cannot accept any goods back for credit without a returns number being issued first.


Returns must be sent to our address at your own cost and risk, unless the return is as a result of an error by us. Should we upon receipt of the said items be satisfied with the condition of the goods, a refund of the full value of the goods together with the least expensive delivery option will be made within 14 days.

Unfortunately we cannot accept proof of posting as confirmation of delivery.


If the goods were not as ordered, damaged, or found to be faulty please contact our office by email to or on 0161 480 2388 during office hours to arrange a collection.

Please enclose a copy of your receipt with the parcel to speed up the returns process.
