PLEASE NOTE: There is a re-delivery charge of up to 20 if there is no-one available to take delivery at the pre-arranged time-slot and date.
The majority of small item orders can be tracked online however for some couriers we are unable to offer you tracking details. If this is the case and your delivery has not arrived by 6pm on the due delivery date, please contact us using our eMessaging service. Many customers ask us for an update on delivery time unfortunately we are unable to provide this information and request that you contact the couriers directly if this is needed.
All items should be inspected upon delivery and damaged goods should be refused. If you notice damage after goods are delivered you must report this to us within 48 hours of delivery
We understand that sometimes you will not be available to receive your goods. If you have ordered a small item, a card will be left advising you where the goods can be picked up locally.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream. Much ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.
Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites. We are obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when you buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.
For example, if a customer bought a new appliance from us we would accept their old appliance back and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. The recycling/disposal service is offered free of charge. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. Alternatively we offer a collection service charged at 45; this service must be requested at the time of ordering your new appliance, and because it involves a different carrier it could extend the timescale for the delivery by up to a week. Any appliances that we are collecting should be disconnected and ready for collection at the time the new appliance is delivered. NB We can only remove old refrigerated appliances if they have been fully defrosted.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:
