You can find more information in our help & info section. If delivery is going to be later, for whatever reason, we will contact you as soon as we know about it.
There are a few locations within the UK that incur a slightly higher courier charge and unfortunately we have to make an additional charge to dispatch to these locations. This will apply to all orders even if they fall into the carriage paid category for UK mainland. Please contact us if you are ordering from outside UK mainland and we can give you an accurate carriage price. We apologise for having to pass on this charge, but at present we are unable to avoid this.
Booking your Electrician
Please don't. Until you've received all your items and you're happy with them that is. We cannot be liable for any losses caused by delayed delivery or pre-booked electrical installers.
