Shipping and Carriage

We have a number of options to help get your securely packed goods shipped safely to you.

  • Use your own courier or freight forwarder to collect the items from our warehouse.
  • We arrange shipment via your courier account on your behalf (we do this for a number of our regular overseas customers).
  • Use our International courier where we have several options available. Pricing is generally destination and volumetric weight dependent so quotes will vary from order to order.

  • Will I have to pay VAT (Value Added Tax)?

    This depends on a number of factors.

  • If both goods and invoices are supplied outside of the EU then no VAT will apply.
  • If we supply within the EU and you are a VAT registered business then no VAT will apply (so long as your Purchase Order includes your full VAT number, including country code).
  • If goods are dispatched to someone within the EU who is a not VAT registered in that country then VAT will apply.
  • If goods are supplied to a non-UK site but the invoicing is to a UK address then this is counted as a standard UK transaction so VAT will apply.
  • If goods are being shipped via a UK address to an end destination then VAT will apply.

  • Currency and Payments

    We currently accept payments in £GBP. Upon receiving your order we will issue a pro-forma invoice (which details methods of payment). Once this is satisfied then items will be dispatched.

    Our web platform is ever evolving and we aim to soon be able to offer overseas transactions online. This will include currencies in Euros (€) or US Dollars ($) as well as payments using PayPal or non-UK registered Credit Cards.


    Export Restrictions

    While we can supply most products to international based customers, there are certain items that are export restricted and therefore limited for sale within the UK only. Restrictions may be imposed by the manufacturer, customs or legislation, or where the destination is an embargoed country.

    If a product you are interested in falls within any of these categories then we will do our best to try and recommend suitable alternatives, where available.


    Model Versions

    The majority of product models we supply are UK variants. While most feature international power chargers there are some that are UK specific. The product datasheets will provide this information. If you are unsure or require further clarification then just ask.

    Please note, we are unable to accept returns for special order products.
