How long will it take to get my order?
Under normal circumstances we aim to ship orders the same day. However if casting is required or at peak times (holidays, Christmas etc) or when we are running a sale it can take longer to ship orders. Time in transit varies by destination. Orders in the UK and NorthAmerica usually take 2-5 working days. Orders to Europe usually take 7-10 working days. Orders to the Rest of the World may take longer.
We operate offices in both the U.S. and U.K. and sometimes it may be necessary to ship items from the other location to fill orders. We are doing everything possible to keep this to a minimum.
What about Back Orders?
We do not usually operate a back-order system. However if an item is out of stock and may not be available for more than a week, we will send you the main part of the order and will send the missing item as soon as we receive it.
What is the best time to call?
Our Administration Department is located in the United States. Please call us on (806) 731-0202 between 9:00 and 5:00 Central time. In the UK and other countries please call us on 01752 547654 (44 1752 547654 from other countries). If you call us in the UK we transfer the call to our office in Texas. There's a 6 hour time difference so the best time to call is after 3pm and before midnight
