How do I amend an order?

If you wish to amend an order for any reason prior to despatch, please contact us as soon as possible.

We will be happy to make amendments to your order according to your instructions.

However, it may not be possible to amend orders for ‘Special Order’ or perishable items, which we have sourced for you, if we have already committed to an order with our own supplier.

How do I cancel an order?

If you wish to cancel an order for any reason, please contact us as soon as possible.

We will cancel the order if we have not already processed and despatched it to you.

You will be too late to cancel your order once it has been despatched from our Warehouse. After taking delivery, you should contact the Sales Office and follow our Returns Procedure.

It will not normally be possible to cancel ‘Special Order’ or perishable items, which we have sourced for you.
