All items are subject to availability. All of our stock levels are live, but obviously errors can occur in our warehousing stock control systems. We will inform you as soon as possible if the goods you have ordered are not available. Products and packaging are subject to change or substitution without prior notice but every effort will be made to dispatch the items specified.

What is Special Order?

While we make a point to always be as clear as possible with product and stock information and are certainly not here to deceive, we understand that being “in it” every day, may mean the finer points that are drilled into us, may get confused or lost in translation. So, aside from the self evident Out of Stock, here’s a breakdown of stock representation on our website, and what it all means.


For many of the brands and products on our website, the IN-stock product that is reflected is either available from our Windsor store, or linked to a remote warehouse whose levels are referenced and displayed.

For LOCAL (Windsor) IN-STOCK product, despatch times are likely to be reflected as the same or next day - depending on the time of day you are looking.

For IN-STOCK but REMOTELY stored products, lead times will likely be longer and this can vary by brand and/or product


Certain brands we work with on a more curated basis. Q36.5 for example have a vast range and while we may list all of their products, it is not possible to stock all of them - though we can certainly access their entire portfolio. In cases like these, and where the systems are not in place to accurately reflect their remote stock, we offer a SPECIAL ORDER service.

Special Order is an order placed in faith and that we aim to fulfil as soon as possible (as we would any other) but where we simply cannot reflect the Brand or manufacturers remote stock.

In normal circumstances, where remote stock IS available, we offer an as accurate as possible lead time for despatch of that product that is usually around 3 working days for businesses based in the UK. For companies, like Q36.5 to continue the example, who are based off-shore, the lead times are generally a little longer for obvious reasons!

When placing a Special Order you receive an estimated despatch time based on the above NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES and obviously before we have had the chance to confirm availability.

To this end, we caveat our despatch conditions message to say that we will place any Special Order products that are OUT OF STOCK remotely, on BACKORDER.


Backorder simply means that we place the order anyway. This allows us to secure stock as soon as that product becomes available again; effectively placing your order in a queue and saving you the need to hunt around to chase down stock only to commit later, further down the list.

In times of low supply and/or high demand, as we have seen in recent years as a result of COVID / Brexit, this is an invaluable way to mitigate missing out, or suffering further delays.

The only drawback with this is that we cannot be accurate with lead times AT THE POINT OF ORDER - ie, when you place your order on the website.

For those that know they want the product and are willing to wait this should cause no issue. For those who are time constrained (ie the item is a gift or is required for an event), we recommend getting in touch first and we can check estimated lead times for you and you can make a decision on that basis.

In all cases, we will inform you via email of the stock status once we have your order.
To this end, please ensure the email is whitelisted in your email address book - and be sure to check your spam and junk filters!

And remember: If in doubt, ASK - we are humans not robots and happy to give you the info! Doing this first avoids disappointment and frustration for all 👊

WARRANTY : General Notice

Warranty is offered by manufacturers, not by retailers.
We are happy to facilitate all warranty claims on your behalf but please make sure that you understand the following:

1. All manufacturers have differing terms for their own products. While it may be a pain to read them, it is prudent to be aware of these.
2. Warranty is almost always predicated on items receiving regular servicing - this can be found in the terms of warranty.
3. Items replaced under warranty may NOT be identical to those being replaced. See point 1!
4. We will process warranty claims for items purchased from us, at our cost
5. Items purchased elsewhere that are brought to us for warranty claims will be processed at a cost of £50 + Shipping to and from suppliers.
6. Persistent emails and phone calls that take up a lot of time may result in additional costs.
7. The manufacturer's decision is final - while we ALWAYS work toward a positive outcome for our customers, we have no say in their decision, so please do not take out any frustrations you have on us!
