Home > How To Order  

Placing your order online

We offer several different checkout options. As well as giving you the chance to provide card details, we also give you the option of placing an order without initial payment.

This gives us the chance to answer any queries or special requests that you may have before you part with your hard earned cash.

If you do provide card details, we will not actually make any charge against your card if there are any issues with your order. These can include such things as: -

  • Low stocks
  • Special requests
  • Split delivery dates

We feel confident that this is the better approach as it keeps you fully informed about the status of your order before you have parted with any money.

If you have any questions about this way of ordering then please feel free to contact us via the usual methods.


Online discounts

We offer a discounted price for all orders placed online. Our normal list price applies to all telephone orders. The reason for this is that we wish to ensure that all items are shipped correctly and very often verbal orders are misunderstood. This, in turn, means additional costs and disruption are incurred travelling the length and breadth of the country exchanging items.


Authorisation Hold

When paying by a card it is very important that the address you give us matches exactly the address on your card statement. If it does not, once we have started the payment request it may get rejected by your bank and the payment amount is then put into Authorization Hold meaning that neither we, nor you, have the money. It can take several days for the funds to be released back to you by your bank. See this Wikipedia Page for more information.
