How do a place an order for an item not listed on the store?Look for the link named *Special Order* near the bottom of the Categories listing to the left. Please follow the full instructions here.
How do I know if my order has been place?
After registering on our store you will receive an automated welcome email. You will also receive another automated email after each successful order has been placed. This will include details of the products purchased, the delivery and invoice addresses and finally the total cost. In addition if you are logged in to your account you will find a "My Account" link in the navigation bar near the top of all pages. By following this link you can view all orders both past and present. If an order does not appear in this list then it has not been successfully placed and you will need to try again. The usual reason for this is that the final "confirm" link has not been pressed when attempting the order and chances are if you look in your "Shopping Basket" you will find the items are still there. In this case just click "Checkout and finalise the order.
How will I know my order has been shipped?
We will send you an email confirming despatch but you can follow the same "My Accounts" link described above to see the latest status and any information relating to your order.
You don't appear to ship to my area? I can't place an order or have been advised of a surcharge.
At present our store only calculates delivery charges for Mainland UK. If you live in the Highlands or Island there may be a surcharge to pay. The same applies to Northern Ireland and the ROI. If you require shipment to any of these areas or Europe please contact us for a quotation. You can then place your order and pay for any surcharges via the *Delivery Surcharges* link near the bottom of the Categories listing to the left.
