- Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which has been confirmed.

VAT will be added (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect. Any claims to exemption from VAT must be supported by the appropriate written certificate at the time of order.
- The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted in clause 12 below.
- Our site contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
- where the Product's correct price is less than the price stated on our site, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and
- if the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
- DELIVERY AND PACKING CHARGES

Products ordered before 2pm will, wherever possible be dispatched that working day and delivered by your selected delivery choice. Products ordered after 2pm will be dispatched on the next working day, both these times are subject to stock availability. The delivery charge is based on the overall weight of the parcel, our standard weight is 20kgs for local and international parcels.
