Ordering & Delivery:
Ordering on line is fast and easy. Simply add the products that you need to your on-line shopping basket and select the appropriate quantity. Payment can then be made using virtually any major credit or debit card (sorry - no Maestro or Switch cards!) via our fully secure payment gateway provided by Securehosting. If you wish you can also choose to call us to complete payment or we can also accept payment by cheque.
Ordering by phone
If you prefer to place your order by phone or simply need to check something, please call us on the number above (0871 873 3002 or +44 871 873 3002 outside the UK). We can accept payment with order by credit or debit card. Please remember that some items such as log book stamps involve a lot of personal choices so try and think these through before you call.
We endeavour to ensure that all published prices are correct, however we reserve the right to change prices without notice and not to accept orders at prices that have been quoted in error. Prices are quoted in three currencies. Pounds Sterling, Euros, and US Dollars. Prices in Euros and US Dollars are calculated using typical exchange rates but we have no control over the exchange rate that will be applied by your credit card or bank and so you should expect the final payment to vary slightly.
All orders are subject to VAT (20% for all items except books and gift certificates). Please look for the price in brackets with the words "inc VAT" next to it.
This depends where you are based! Please note you cannot pay for an order from one country and deliver it to another. Please contact us first if you have this special need.
