Please be aware that we reserve the right to alter any miscalculation, plus or minus, and you will be notified prior to shipping of any changes.

Although we offer a world wide export scheme, and trust & rely on the various delivery systems used to work properly, it must be understood that items are sent entirely at the customer's own risk. We will package the items well to prevent damage, and obtain all relevant despatch documents etc, but in the event of a parcel being lost in transit we will not be liable for such a loss. Insurance, to the limits quoted by the delivery company involved, against loss or damage is included in our quoted delivery prices but offers only minimal cover

If a payment does fail for whatever reason, this can be assumed to be the case by the potential buyer, if the 'Reserved' banner (as described above) is removed from the item(s) ordered. PayPal / e-Cheque: - Item reservation / payment via e-cheque. I will reserve items for 5 days pending the clearance of an 'e-cheque' via PayPal.
