We take the security of our website and of your transactions
extremely seriously. We encrypt all traffic involving personal
data with industry-standard SSL certificates and we are also
PCI compliant - meaning that we follow all current data security
standards and undergo weekly scans monitoring our security status.
Additionally, we do not store any card details at all, all
payments are handled using a system of Tokenisation which is
an industry-standard method of secure payment handling. When
you place an order with us payment is either handled via your
Paypal account or if you choose to pay by credit/debit card we
create a "Token" with your payment details which is stored by
the Bank payment gateway. When you return to make a purchase
it basically reactivates the "Token" so no details need to be
entered again and those details are not stored by us.
Estimated shipping dates are accurate to the best of our
knowledge, based on the latest stock information made available
to us from the supplier. Available items should ship to you within
the time-frame indicated. If there are any unforeseen issues with
availability we will notify you immediately.
*To qualify for free postage the order must be sent as one package.
Therefore, all items must be in stock or you should be happy to wait
until all items become available to ship so they can be sent as one
package. Downloads and Gift Vouchers do not count towards free
shipping. Please note that Pre-Orders do not count towards free
shipping as their release dates are liable to fluctuate.
If your order contains items that have different estimated
shipping dates (for example, ‘available to pre-order’, ‘in stock’,
‘available to ship in 1-3 days’) you will be given an option either
to wait for everything to become available to ship in one package,
or to ship each item as soon as it becomes available. Stock arrives
at the office throughout the day so the stock status of items on the
website can change several times a day.
Important Note: all items that are not currently displaying as
In Stock need to be ordered in from our suppliers and the estimated
shipping dates are only an indication of when we expect those items
to come into stock. If there are any unforeseen issues with
availability we will notify you immediately.
At checkout you are able to select a premium packaging option
for a fee of £1.50. We pack all of our orders using appropriate
packaging, however when you pick this option we use a wider
cruciform offering additional protection if you have a
particularly heavy-handed postman.
We offer two services:
1. First Class Royal Mail - for UK and for International
orders: The package will be delivered by your national postal service.
Royal Mail sets limits on the weight of packages, so if the order
becomes too heavy to ship in one package the order will be split
into two or more packages. The packages will be marked accordingly,
for example, if an order has to be sent over two packages the packages
would be labelled ‘1 of 2’ and ‘2 of 2’.
2. Parcelforce tracked courier service:
This comprises a flat box fee for UK (and some European countries),
and a sliding scale based on weight for other countries. Parcelforce
is a Monday - Friday service. Packages sent via Parcelforce can be
Parcelforce can only ship to PO boxes in certain countries,
details can be found once you have made your country selection
Once you have added items to your crate you can select your
country and choose either to send everything in one package or
to ship as soon as the items become available. At this point the
total given is a guide to the cost and more shipping configurations
are available once you have logged in and proceeded to checkout.
At the checkout you will still be able to add or take away items
from the crate and change/compare your shipping options.
Pre-orders are treated as separate packages to items that are
either in stock or available to order. If pre-orders share the
same release date then they can be ordered and shipped together.
However pre-order release dates are liable to change, if you have
ordered two pre-orders with the same date to ship together and
then one release date gets pushed back, we will ship the available
pre-order straight away and the second pre-order as soon as it
becomes available with no extra shipping charge.
If you choose to ship your order across more than one package you
can select the Royal Mail service for one package and Parcelforce
courier for the other.
* if an individual item weighs more than 2kg and you are outside
of the UK the package must be sent via courier as Royal Mail sets
a 2kg limit on packages.
* Royal Mail covers postage all countries, however Parcelforce is
not available in every country.
If an order does not arrive, we can issue a replacement package.
In the UK we consider a package to be missing after 15 working
days. Most international orders are considered missing after 25
working days with the exception of France, South America and Africa
- packages to these destinations are considered missing after 60
working days. Before we can issue a replacement, customers must
have checked with their local depot/sorting office to see if their
package is awaiting pick up. If we think there is an issue with
the shipping address, or that packages are being stolen in the
post, we reserve the right to refuse future orders to these
We automatically add an insurance supplement to orders over £30.
Orders between £30 - £49.99 are charged a 60p insurance supplement.
Orders over £50 are charged a £3 insurance supplement.
If a package is returned to us because of an incomplete address,
or because it was not collected from a local depot, we will have to
charge you again in order to re-send it. We will get in touch with
you before any package is re-sent.
