What happens if a product is out of stock
Whilst we strive to keep our stock count accurate, occasionally products are unwittingly out of stock.  If part of your order is out of stock, we may dispatch the items that are in stock right away and send on the remaining items as soon as they are back in stock.  If we are expecting delivery within 48 hours we will usually hold your order and dispatch when we receive the outstanding items.  You will not be charged any additional postage if we send your order in more than one part.

Alternatively if there is a comparable substitute product we may send the alternative.  If there is a price difference we will refund if the alternative is cheaper and unless we agree this with you, you won’t be charged if the alternative we select for you is more expensive.

If there is a question about the suitability of an alternative, there is a large price difference or the item is likely to be out of stock for a while we may refund the item for you or contact you by phone or email to discuss things with you and to enable you to make a decision about whether you would like to choose something else or have a refund of the item.

When we have a sale, special offer or other promotions and on newsletter days, due to volume, it may take an extra day to get your order out.
