Stock Availability and Backorders:
While most of our products are available ex. stock, we may occasionally run out of products that are displayed as in stock on our website - this is because we sell on multiple channels. If you order products that our out of stock, we will hold them on backorder for you and dispatch all in stock goods as usual. We will then dispatch the out of stock goods to you as soon as they come back into stock (usually around 4 weeks, but often less). If you would not like to wait for your goods you may contact us for a refund on the out of stock products. This will not effect the free delivery offer, or any other offer that you have taken advantage of.

Where a direct delivery is required to a ‘site’ or ‘one-off’, there may be a supplementary charge and also for delivery to ‘congestion charge’ areas, docks, wharves, container bases etc.
