How to Contact Us
A full set of contact details is included on our Contact Page including a simple form for you to use to email us.
Postage and Shipping
Please trust us that we will send all orders out just as soon as we can - there's absolutely no reason why we would want to hang on to things and cause delays. Unfortunately, though, we didn't raise £540 million on the stockmarket and can not match Amazon for same-day dispatches! In practice we ship on Monday, Wednesdays and Thursday and include all orders received before 9am on that day. At busier times, such as Christmas, we ship every weekday. However, we can NOT guarantee that you will get your goods the next day - trains have been known to de-rail, lorries occasionally crash, people get ill, computers crash and, most commonly, people are out when couriers try to deliver. What we do GUARANTEE is that we will despatch all good in stock within three working days. A signature will be required on delivery which may be at any time 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. If you are out when a courier tries to deliver, they should leave a card with a contact number for your local depot to arrange re-delivery or pick-up. We no longer dispatch items or bikes out of the UK.
Your Security and Credit Card Security
We now offer secure facilities for you to provide us with your payment details. For order placed via our secure server, the details are stored and transferred via a secure connection (128bit) and at no point are your payment details stored or transferred in an insecure way. Payment is NOT automatically taken from your card when you place your order via the secure server. For standard (non secure) orders; Once we receive your order we will contact you to confirm any payment details by telephone. As a result, it is extremely important that you supply us with a daytime contact telephone number, or we will be unable to process your order efficiently. We will also be able to verbally confirm availability of your chosen goods at this time. All information is treated in the strictest confidence and no permanent records are held after each transaction has been completed. No credit card details will be kept on record after your transaction with us.
