Got a question? Our Shopping FAQ's may be able to help. If you can't find the answer to your particular question, please get in touch either via [email protected] or on 01993 867075 9.00-5.00 UK Time (We do have an answermachine)
Where are your offices and warehouse?
We are located in Bampton Oxfordshire where we have taken over an old RAF listening post smack bang in the middle of the English countryside – very peaceful! The team consists of Mike, Caroline & Michele and all can be contacted on T 00 44 (0) 1993 867075 | E [email protected]. Phones are open Mon-Fri 9.00am-5.00pm UK Time. (We do have an answermachine)
How safe is your website?
Our site uses all the very latest safety and security features but, most importantly, we never, ever take nor hold your payment details as these are given to a totally separate and secure site – SagePay, Europe's leading independent payment service provider. They make sure the payment process is safe and easy. We repeat we never, ever see your confidential credit or debit card information.
How do I navigate your website?
Hopefully with ease! Simply choose a category or image you think appropriate and click away, remember if a hand shows you can click, if an arrow shows then you can’t. Make use of the back button in your web browser to quickly retrace your steps, or make use of the 'crumb trail' that can be found above the image on any product page.
Why do people talk about "cookies"?

We aim to despatch all orders received before 2pm the same day (subject to stock availability). Orders received after 2pm on a Friday and over the weekend would be despatched on Monday (again, subject to stock availability). Please note however that on some lines we keep stock in our Central Warehouse or we are waiting delivery from the factory, in these cases delivery dates are clearly shown on the site.
What happens if my order is not in stock?
We admit we are not perfect and sometimes when we think we have it in stock it isn’t. In such an instance we will contact you immediately and give you an option to cancel or tell you how many days it will take to deliver. Remember we never take your money on order we only take payment on the actual day of despatch.
What happens if you have to ship my order in more than one lot?
We only charge delivery once so if we have to make more than one shipment to complete your order then the other shipments will be at our cost.
Can I amend/add to/cancel my order?
Of course you can as long as it hasn’t been despatched, please contact our Office quoting your order reference number. If your order has been despatched already we will do all we can to resolve the situation for you.
Do I need to be in to sign for the package?
Most of our deliveries do require a signature but you can always give us special delivery instructions when placing the order of where to leave the package or if you want a neighbour to sign for it but remember our responsibility ends there. If you want to specify a timed delivery then please contact the Office though there will be an extra cost for such a service.

What do I do if the item is received damaged or missing parts?
In this unlikely event please ensure you contact us within 3 working days of the receipt of the item, preferably by email giving details of the problem. This means for example that if you receive it Friday then you must inform us by the following Wednesday. (Saturday & Sunday are not considered working days even if many of us work them!)
