What happens to goods I have ordered but not in stock?

For retail (public) orders: we will only deliver and charge for lines in stock.

For trade (account) customers) depending on your choice we will cross off or back order any lines not available.

How will I know if lines are not available?

You will be notified at check out and asked to cancel nil stock lines from order. Please contact us for availability details.

How often is the site updated?

Product detail, stock levels, pricing etc are updated overnight. For new account set up you may have to wait to the following day before you can log on.

Can I order any product quantity?

It is not economical for us to break down orders to non pack quantity multiples and risk of damages is reduced with standard pack sizes. Minimum order per line will be the pack size (eg 6) and multiples thereof (eg 12, 18, 24 etc). If you order non pack quantities (eg 8) the web site will warn you and give revised quantity-this will be rounded up (eg to 12) but you can override and round down if required.
