Our terms and conditions are much the same as anywhere else. Points to note:
If you order something which has to be made or altered just for you, we may not be able to accept a return (unless it’s faulty, of course.) This is a standard clause. Wherever possible, we will contact you to confirm this before proceeding with the order.
Many of our products are very large, very heavy or both. Please bear this in mind when ordering – in many cases, you must be able to receive and inspect your delivery at the agreed time, or you may find that your order is returned to us and you will need to pay extra to have it redelivered.
If in doubt, ask!
