It depends on the products you purchase and when you purchase them, as we run a number of seasonal or product specific discounts and promos across the year.
So if you benefited from a discount at some point, please don't assume that this will be always available. If you have any queries regarding discounts, it's best to ask one of our team members.

Some destinations are harder to deliver to than others, and therefore require specific costs based on the volume of the desired items.

We do recommend you to create an account as this will help you track past and pending orders, update billing/delivery information and facilitate any future orders.
Gift Vouchers are bought for a specific person on their e-mail address.
If the recipient already has an account with us, the Voucher will be available to view and use within their account.
If the recipient does not have an account with us, they can create one using the e-mail address the Voucher was purchased on. Once this has been created, they can view and use the voucher from the "Your Account" icon positioned on the top right corner of the website.
This can then be claimed at checkout within the "Got a Discount" box using the Redemption Code show in "Your Gift Vouchers" tab.

The majority of brands we retail offer a warranty period for manufacturing defects between 1 to 5 years. For more information on your product's warranty terms and duration, please visit the manufacturer's website.
If you have experienced a manufacturing fault with a product purchased from us, we are more than happy to submit a claim on your behalf with the relevant manufacturer/brand. To initiate this, please take some detailed photographs of the fault and the product's serial number and e-mail them to us at email@example.com , alongside a detailed description of the fault.
Once this is in our system we will create a Warranty Claim Ticket on your behalf, keeping you updated throughout the entire process.
Yes, we will continue to deliver to the EU as per our usual Terms and Conditions.
Due to the recent change in trade between the UK and Europe, our Couriers have made us aware of some temporary delays for all EU shipments.
As of the 1st of January 2020, EU customers will no longer pay British VAT when purchasing from us. Instead, they will be charged an import duty relevant to the recipient country once the package arrives at customs.
This process depends on the authorities of the buyer's country, so please make yourself aware of these before placing the order to avoid confusion, and implicitly, disappointment.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us!
