Availability of goods and prices

Goods will be sent to the address given by you in your order and contained in the Order Confirmation. Please note that occasionally goods ordered may be sent to you in instalments if there are unexpected stock shortages. We will make every effort to advise you (by email) if this is the case.

We make every attempt to ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, however discrepancies may occur. If we discover an error in the price of goods already ordered we will inform you as soon as possible and ask that you reconfirm your order at the correct price, whilst also giving you the option to cancel it. If we are unsuccessful in contacting you we will consider the order cancelled. If we cancel your order, you will receive a full refund.
