Do you offer Free Delivery?

Due to the costs of using premium couriers and the weights of our products, free delivery is not a service that we’re currently able to offer. We try and be as fair as possible regarding delivery costs and charge on a “per box” basis

Can I collect from you?

No. As an Online retailer, we’re not currently set up for Click and Collect.

How do I know my payment/order information is secure?

We operate payment systems and order procedures that comply strictly to GDPR regulations. We don’t even see your card details – these are held by our payment processing partner. We also insist on all card payments being processed using 3D secure systems – which means the chances of fraud are virtually zero. This means that occasionally those otherwise valid payments will fail if you are unable to verify a 3DS check.
If you ever need us to remove your personal data, we have a policy for that too – just send us a message and we can remove all your personal data from our system.

How do you make sure it won’t break?

Breakages are rare but sadly do occur. We’re obsessive about refining and improving our packaging standards, and we think we’ve tried and tested virtually every solution available. We currently use a packaging system for glass that has breakage rates of 0.03%. It’s the only packaging solution on the market that is tested by being dropped on its corners etc… and it’s the only one that DPD approve.

Can I get discount for Bulk/Trade Orders?

Generally, we’re not able to beat any of our prices published on our site as we try to be very competitive within the market, however, we’re happy to look at items on a case by case basis where the order volume is significant so please ask us about anything specific you’re looking for in bulk.

Can you let me know when something is back in stock?

Absolutely. We have a great “email when back in stock” feature on our website. If you can’t find the product page, drop us a message and we’ll subscribe you to the stock notifications list so you’ll know as soon as it’s back in stock
