EU Companies - Please add your EU VAT ID when registering your account. We will check the validity of your VAT number using the European Commission website when processing your order. This will not delay shipping and we will not charge VAT with a valid VAT ID.



Goods are charged at the price shown on the product pages on the date you place the order and are exclusive of VAT. Prices are correct at time of publication. Errors and omissions are accepted. Orders will be processed at our published prices, otherwise, in the case of any unexpected change in price, you will be informed and asked if you wish to reconsider your order before proceeding.

Credit / debit card payments

For businesses, organisations and individual customers, we accept all major credit and debit cards including VISA, MASTERCARD, MAESTRO & AMEX.

For security purposes, we will ask for your CV2 number – the last three digits of the number on your card's signature strip.

We offer instant 30 day credit status to all Schools, Universities, Councils, NHS Trusts, Fire / Police authorities, and all Government Departments. We are also happy to accept applications to open trade accounts from businesses, re-sellers and dealers. Please contact our sales team for further information.
