UK Mainland is categorised as England, Scotland, and Wales Mainland. Some Islands where a road bridge exists may be classed as Mainland but not all such Islands are included.

For heavier items, such as machines, we deliver using a different postage system to keep costs down: 30kg + price on availability.

The Company reserves the right to defer the date of delivery of the Goods, or to cancel the Contract or reduce the volume of the Goods ordered by the Customer (without liability to the Customer) if it is prevented from, or delayed in, the carrying on of its business (wholly or in part) due to circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Company including, without limitation, acts of God, governmental actions, war or national emergency, acts of terrorism, protests, riot, civil commotion, fire, explosion, flood, epidemic, lock-outs, strikes or other labour disputes (whether or not relating to either party’s workforce), or restraints or delays affecting carriers, or any inability or delay in obtaining Goods of adequate or suitable materials, or the failure or demise of any source of supply.
We endeavour to keep in stock, or available, all items that we advertise for sale, however there can be occasions where this is not the case, which could be as a result of production difficulties, unexpected demand or any other reason. In the event that a product is unavailable for whatever reason, we will contact you to ask you whether you would like us to supply a suitable alternative product. We will not supply you with an alternative product unless we receive instruction from you that you wish us to do so. If you opt not to purchase an alternative product, we will refund the full value of the product and any applicable carriage charges.
RISK AND TITLE
The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.
The VAT element of each purchase is clearly detailed on the invoice that will be provided to you.
Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
Please note, online prices do not always match store prices.
If the Goods supplied by the Company carry a manufacturer’s warranty the Company will so far as possible assign the benefit thereof to the Buyer.
No condition is made or to be implied nor is any warranty given or to be implied as to life or wear of the Goods supplied or that they will be suitable for any particular purpose or for use under any specific conditions notwithstanding that such purpose or conditions may be known or made known to the Company.
