We’re passionate about the service we offer and that includes our approach to security. Maintaining your privacy is a priority which is why we use Sage Pay (formerly Protx), a third party payment specialist. They’re the largest independent payment processor in the UK and are compliant to the highest level in payment card industry data security standards (PCI DSS), so you can be assured that all the information you enter is safe and secure.
We won’t capture or store your card details and once you have entered your card number into a payment page securely hosted by Sage Pay, all sensitive data is encrypted and sent to the banks for processing.
Once your transaction has been submitted, you will be automatically redirected back to our site where you will receive a confirmation regarding your order.
Through Sage Pay, we have also enabled 3D Secure (Verified by Visa and SecureCode by MasterCard). This is an additional check to confirm no one but you is using your card. This box will appear and ask you to enter a selection of characters from your password e.g. first, third and fifth character. So don’t be alarmed if this additional check appears.
We can also accept card payments over the phone - 01743 791853. We use Sage Pay Secure to process telephone payments.
We also accept payment by Paypal, or by Bank Transfer or Postal Order.
We will usually post your order within one to two working days of receipt of your payment and we always obtain a certificate of posting. We post daily Monday to Friday. If your order is urgent or you would like it posting the same day please either phone or email us - we are happy to help if we can. Please note that selecting Special Delivery will not guarantee that your order is dispatched the same day as this depends on what time your order is placed.

Returns, Exchanges etc..
It is important to us that you are happy with your purchase and we ask that you contact us as soon as possible(within 7 days of delivery) if there is any problem with your order so that we can resolve the issue.
We offer a 100% refund if you decide to return any item you have purchased from us. Please contact us within 7 days of delivery if you intend to return any items. Items should be returned unused and in the original packaging . You should obtain a certificate of posting or use a tracked postage method such as Recorded Delivery. If an item is faulty we will refund the postage for returning it to us (1st or 2nd class post) once it has been returned to us and we confirm the item is faulty. (The label used by us to send your item can not be re-used and may not be posted via a Post Office or post box - if Royal Mail find post with these labels in the postal system they will not deliver it).
If you wish to exchange any item we may charge for the cost of postage to send the new item(s) to you.
If Royal Mail are unable to deliver your item they will usually leave a card advising you to contact your delivery office to re-arrange delivery or for you to collect your package. This is usually because a signature is required or the package won't fit through your letter box. If you do not contact your delivery office within the time stated on the card, Royal Mail will usually return the item to the sender. If this happens and your order has to be re-sent the cost for re-sending the order will be charged before the order can be re-sent. Alternatively you will be offered a refund less the original postage cost incurred by us.
(Occasionally Royal Mail omit to leave a card but will still hold your package at your local delivery/sorting office.)
