Availability:

10.1 All products purchased are subject to availability. If products you order become unavailable we will notify you and, if we have received a payment for the unavailable products, we will ask if you are prepared to wait until we restock the items or if you would prefer a refund.
10.2 Most pictures of products show the exact model and colour that you will receive, however please note that all pictures are for illustrative purposes only and actual items may differ.
10.3 If your order consists of items in stock and items not in stock then we will wait until we have received the out of stock items before dispatching your complete order. In other words we will only send out one complete order.
10.4 If you place an order for an item that is out of stock we will be able to give an estimated date of when we will receive that item. This date is an estimate based on our previous experience of receiving deliveries from that particular supplier but is not guaranteed. This is especially so during the festive period and stock-checking periods when many of our suppliers warehouses will be closed for 2 weeks. If we foresee a problem we will notify you as soon as possible.

Delivery:

11.1 During the checkout process, you will be prompted to choose the delivery option you wish to use. Delivery is charged depending on your order and will be calculated when you check out.
11.2 Delivery times vary depending on what time the order reaches us and the next available posting date. We aim to dispatch all orders within 1 working day and you should receive the order the next working day but no later than 5 working days no matter which delivery option you chose. For deliveries outside the UK please add 5-15 working days depending on where you are, and the delivery service you choose.
11.3 We may use the courier service we believe to be the most reliable and effective depending on your order. Because we rely on third parties to delivery your order, we cannot be held responsible for their reliability and accuracy.
11.4 If products are returned to us as undeliverable they may be subject to an additional charge before being re-shipped. Alternatively, we may refund you the cost of the products minus the delivery charge and 15% administration fee.
11.5 On orders where you have opted for recorded or signed delivery, we will collect proof of posting, or if sent via courier, we will be issued with a tracking number which you may ask for at any time. If you do not receive your order, then we will contact our courier to see what compensation is claimable (if any). If you require extra compensation then you must ask us prior to placing an order and pay the extra for this cover.
11.6 Overseas orders can be sent via Airmail, Surface Mail or International Signed For. Please note that Surface Mail can take over 56 days for an order to reach you.
11.7 Orders sent by First Class post are unrecorded and cannot be tracked. Once they leave our warehouse then we cannot be held responsible for the order. If an order that was sent by First Class delivery goes missing then we will attempt to claim compensation from Royal Mail. If the claim is successful then we will contact you to arrange a replacement or refund.
11.8 Recorded delivery is an optional service that costs extra and must be chosen when making your order. Orders with Recorded delivery receive a tracking number which may be obtained by you at any time. Should the order go missing then we will attempt to claim compensation up to the value of £37. If you require extra insurance, then Special Delivery must be purchased at the time of making your order which can cover orders up to £500.
11.9 Claims can only be submitted after 15 working days after despatch for UK orders and normally takes around 3-5 weeks to be settled. Claims for European orders can only be submitted after 25 days. International claims can take up to 90 days to be settled.
11.10 Missing orders must be reported to us within 30 days of despatch.
11.11 Although all UK orders and most overseas orders have one set fee for postage, overseas orders weighing 2KG or more may incur additional fees depending on the destination. We will notify you before shipment if an order requires extra fees to be paid.

Returns & Refunds:

12.1 You have the right to cancel your order at any time up to the end of the seventh working day following the day on which you received the products. It is not compulsory for you to notify us of the reason of cancellation. If you wish to cancel your order please send an email to customer services with details of your cancellation. You must state your name, a description of the goods and your order number.
12.2 Any use of the goods beyond that necessary to inspect them on delivery will invalidate your right to cancel the order. If we believe items have been damaged due to lack of care by yourself then we reserve the right to refuse a refund or replacement. If damage is made when returning the goods back to us, then it is your right to seek compensation from your carrier.
12.3 We operate a 100% satisfaction guarantee policy which means that if you are not happy with any products bought from this website, you may return them to us within 14 days of purchase for a refund or exchange provided that the products are returned to us in their original condition and carefully packaged. Returns made after 14 days will be accepted at the managers discretion. We may refuse a return, offer store credit or offer a refund minus P&P and a 15% administration charge. We will not accept returns for underwear, socks or headphones.
12.4 All products bought from our website are guaranteed for 12 months from the date of purchase. If a product proves to be faulty within that period you may return it to us for a refund or exchange unless a manufacturers guarantee has been issued then you will need to contact the manufacturer.
12.5 If you have paid p&p on your order then we reserve the right not to refund this cost to you if you return an item, but will only refund the cost of the goods to you. 
12.6 Paypal refunds can only be issued up to 60 days after the initial period. If for whatever reason, we need to refund you after the 60 days have expired then you will be responsible for Paypal's charges for receiving the money from us.
12.7 If an order or product has been returned to us that was paid for with a credit note or voucher then a refund will be issued in the form of another credit note or voucher.
12.8 Once an order is in the processing stage you may cancel the order before 4pm and we will not despatch it. After 4pm it will be declared as shipped and may not be retrieved. Instead you will need to send the item back to us. Once an order has been changed to processing and is cancelled before it is despatched, we will make an administration charge of £1.50 to cover packaging and picking costs.
