LOGGING IN AND REGISTERING
In order to place an order with us, or to use the account management features, you will need to sign in to the site. This means we need to be absolutely sure about your identity before processing orders.
Registering as an online customer means you can store your billing address, multiple shipping addresses, and check your order status. It also means we can contact you if there's a problem with your order.
We use your email address as our means of identifying you and you will need it to access your online account with us.
When you create a password it allows you to access your account information. Once entered, your contact, shipping and payment details will be stored and you will not have to re enter them again when you make your next order. You can also track your order status and order history.
You should keep your password secure. You can access your account information at any time to edit any of your account details.
Each time you return to this site, remember to sign in using your email and password.
If you forget your password, click on the 'Forgotten Your Password?' link on the 'Sign In’ page. Simply enter your email address and we'll email you a new password so you can gain access to the site.
Once you've successfully logged in, you can change your password again in the 'Edit Email/Password' area of 'My Account'.
Note: For security reasons any stored payment details will be deleted when we send you a new password.
We are able to process payments using your Personal Account, Visa, MasterCard, and PayPal.
We are able to deliver goods to anywhere in the UK. Unfortunately we cannot deliver to addresses outside of the UK or to BFPO addresses.
If you order before 10pm you can have your items delivered the very next day! Please see below for the full details:
Weekdays before 10pm: delivery the following day
Weekdays after 10pm: delivery within 2 working days
Saturday/ before 12pm on Sunday: delivery on Monday
Sunday after 12pm: delivery on Tuesday
Bank holidays: delivery the next working day
For example – if you place an order at 2pm on a Monday, you'll receive your order on Tuesday, between 8am and 8pm.
The above delivery times are based on assumption that all items are in stock. Whilst we make every effort to deliver goods on the day you've selected, we cannot guarantee delivery on that day or accept any liability for out of pocket expenses, costs, losses or any other expenses due to failed or late delivery. If any of the above options are available on your order they will be presented to you at checkout.
If your order isn't urgent and you're happy to wait a couple of days, just select our standard delivery option.
Your items will arrive within 3-5 working days, between 8am and 8pm. We'll update you on the status of your order via email, you can also track the parcel online by clicking ‘My Account’ and selecting ‘Track My Orders’.
If you're likely to be out when your parcel's delivered, you can send it to a ParcelShop and pick it up at a time that suits you. If the 'Click to Collect' option is displayed at the checkout, you'll be offered a list of your nearest collection locations, alternatively, you can look for a delivery address. These could be convenience stores, petrol stations or local shops such as Spar and Londis. They'll accept delivery of your parcel and hold it for 10 days. We'll also send you a PIN* which you'll need to quote when you pick up the parcel.
At the moment Click to Collect is only available if you select standard delivery, and not all of our items are eligible to be delivered via this service.
If your items are eligible for nominated day delivery, this will be shown at the checkout. You can choose the most convenient delivery date for you, plus a timeslot (am or pm). You can even request delivery on a Sunday!
Delivery times are based on the assumption that all items are in stock. Whilst we make every effort to deliver goods on the day we specify, we cannot guarantee delivery on that day or accept any liability for out of pocket expenses, costs, losses or any other expenses due to failed or late delivery.
