We will post items via the delivery method selected however we accept no responsibility for loss, damage or late delivery through no fault of our own. In certain cases it may be possible to claim compensation for lost items however we need to be notified within 14 days that the product has not arrived else we will not be able to claim and you may lose the money spent on that lost item. In the exceptional circumstances where we find we are at fault ie. lost order, we will send the item and refund all postage costs.

We will not be obligated to deliver the item at the previously charged price and put us in a loss making situation.

Goods ordered in error
