Deliveries out side the UK

Unlike many UK based retail web sites we aim to provide our export customers with the same standard of service as our UK customers.

It is possible to order goods for delivery to most countries worldwide however, due to the wide range and size of our products it is impossible to state these costs online. Please either call or email us with your order details and we will get back to you immediately with delivery costs.


Product Availability

We make every effort to keep all our products in stock. **If an item is out of stock we will contact you immediately, inform you when it will be in stock and then get hold of it as quickly as possible. When we receive the item we will send it to you by next-day delivery.

If an item is not available at the time of purchase, we will inform you and advise of an estimated delivery date. You will be given the option to cancel the order or wait for the goods.


Export and International Shipping

From our UK headquarters we export orders of all sizes to many countries across Europe and worldwide, particularly the US and Middle East.

Export services:

We offer a comprehensive and efficient export service including:

We hope you will be pleased with your purchase. Should you wish to return anything to us we will be happy to refund or exchange any goods returned to us unused, undamaged and fully resaleable within 10 working days of receipt by the customer. The cost of returning any goods other than faulty goods is paid by the customer.

The customer is liable for any goods returned to us that arrive damaged due to poor packing on the customers part.

If goods are returned to us after 10 working days or not in a fully resaleable condition, we reserve the right to refuse a refund or to deduct a 25% re-stocking charge.

Please keep your proof of postage from the Post Office until we have confirmed that we have received your returned items.

Refunds will be made to debit/ credit cards within 5 working days of receiving the returned goods. There is no refunds on software once payment has been received.
