6 Ordering Policy
6.1 if we deliver using our own transportation then all orders over £25.00 (excluding VAT) will normally be delivered carriage paid. Orders delivered using other method or all Web sales are delivered carriage paid if value is over £100.00 (excluding VAT). However we do reserve the right to make carriage charges in exceptional circumstances. We will consult with you in that case before we ship goods to you. (We reserve the right to increase or decrease minimum order values from time to time). Carriage charges are calculated according to value of goods purchased and also the location of delivery. Please note we do not ship out side of the UK. Deliveries required for outside mainland UK, Isle of Wight, Scotland, Channel Islands, Northern Ireland carriage is at higher rates. We also reserve the right to increase carriage charges for heavy or bulky goods. We will telephone you before accepting your order to discuss such extra costs with you.
7. Cancelling an Order
7.1 in the event that you wish to cancel an order you may do so by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If a request to cancel an order is made after we have proceeded with our dispatch process we reserve the right to charge for any incurred cost. In the event that you wish to cancel any ‘special order’ items, and we have already committed to buy these from our suppliers in respect of your order then we reserve the right to charge for any incurred costs, and in full should we not be able to return such goods for credit.
