We reserve the right to cancel the contract at any time and without prior notice.

We will endeavour to ensure all goods correspond to any samples, proofs and specifications we supply, however, you accept that each product supplied may vary in appearance and specification. For the avoidance of doubt, product proofs and samples do not constitute a sale by sample.




We usually dispatch goods using Royal Mail delivery services which require a signature on delivery. The delivery dates we provide are estimates only and time is not of the essence. We are not liable for late deliveries or any consequential damage arising therefrom.


Signed For deliveries are deemed complete when goods have been signed for at the delivery address and non-signed for deliveries are deemed complete if not reported missing within 7 days of dispatch.
