|Making A Purchase Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.|
We accept credit card payment. We accept Visa, Mastercard, & Maestro. You may send your credit card information via phone, fax, by post or over the Internet.
When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
|Shipping And Handling We make a charge for shipping based on the weight of your items, and this is automatically calculated for you at the checkout. We aim to despatch items within 3 working days. Items should therefore be received within 5 working days. If an item is urgent please ring us to check it is in stock for immediate dispatch.|
Items to the mainland UK will be sent with Interlink Express, Basic Royal Mail 1st Class/Recorded Delivery or Royal Mail Special Delivery - weight dependent - value of compensation is set depending on postage choice. The maximum amount of compensation is quoted when you select the postage method. We charge between £5.00 and £12 on all skates and between £3.00 and £8 for smaller items - weight dependent. The goods will be covered by compensation upto the relevant value upon your selection.
We use Interlink Express for our parcel couriers - they deliver on an overnight service and cover a value of either up to £100 for packets (i.e. dresses) and up to £170 value on skates. You will receive an email on the morning of delivery giving you an approximate one hour delivery window slot - so this should help you to know when the parcel will arrive. You can contact Interlink if the time slot if not suitable to re-arrange the delivery.
