All prices are in pounds sterling and are exclusive of any VAT payable unless otherwise stated. The price of the items does not include the delivery charge (if any) which will be charged at the rates applicable at the date you place your order and which will be displayed on the Website.
If for any reason beyond our reasonable control, we are unable to supply a particular item, we will notify you as soon as possible.
