Delays & Out of Stock Items

While we make every effort to have accurate stock numbers reflected in our system, occasionally we may run out of an item. If we are unable to source more stock of that item within a day or two of order, we will always contact you to inform you of the probable delay period via the email address or telephone number you provided. Alternatively, we may offer you a substitute item. If you cannot accept the delay or the alternative we offer, we will issue a full refund.
