- Shipping & Delivery
All the prices listed on this site exclude delivery and VAT.
The delivery charge is added during the checkout process, and is based on the weight of the order. If you are within the UK, and your order is over £250 (Excl VAT), delivery is free*. You will have the option to select the shipping method that suits you, and only the shipping options that are available to you will be selectable. Once you have selected the shipping method that suits you, you will be shown the total price of the order, before you commit to the order.
We try to ship orders out as soon as possible and in most cases we can ship out orders within 48 hours, but if elements of your order are out of stock or need special preparations this will mean the dispatch time can take longer, so we suggest clients contact us for specific delivery times that relate to your order.
The Website will automatically work out the shipping costs for most destinations world wide and there is a shipping estimator is the cart section of the website. We currently use Royal Mail recorded, special delivery or UPS/TNT for courier service for all UK deliveries. Our Worldwide shipping is done with Royal mail signed for (under 2KG) and UPS/TNT for larger items. We ship world wide but there are restrictions to the length that our standard shipping will apply, and this depends on the country, but in most cases is 2.7 meters long.
For shipping enquiries please contact us with your full address and the items you need and we will email you the shipping price. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. (We will need your full address including postal code)

Protecting individual privacy is very important to us. This Online Privacy Statement is designed to inform you about our online collection and use of personal information. The EU Data Protection Directive principles apply to this policy, as well as various EU member state national laws. This policy applies to individuals and their personal data, as set out by the above regulations, which is collected, stored and used by PIU. From time to time, PIU may modify this Online Privacy Statement.
The first section of this policy explains what information we collect when you use the PIU website, why we collect this and how we use and protect this information. The second section explains PIU’s general policies towards protecting information.
Section 1: Data Collection and Use on the PIU Website
What information does PIU collect and why?
This policy applies to all information PIU receives from you, whether you are registering on our website or ordering any of our products. During the course of your use of this website, PIU will collect two types of information:
1) Website Usage Information – This website uses an analytics tool to automatically gather certain statistical information such as the number and frequency of visitors and IP addresses. This information is used as aggregated statistical information about users, providing usage by IP address. Individual users cannot be identified from this type of data. This information helps us to measure how individuals use the website and our services, so that we can continually improve them.
2) Personal Information – PIU requires information from you that may be personal, such as name, e-mail address, telephone numbers, fax numbers and credit card data in order for us to perform the services offered by the site and to fulfil your contracts with us to provide those services. Some of this information is voluntary; the compulsory fields are clearly identified whenever you are asked to supply information. On occasions, PIU may also collect additional information from you on a voluntary basis. This personal information may be used in a number of ways:
● Identifying potential new customers and subscribers
● Detecting and preventing fraudulent activity
● As part of the account opening process for new corporate customers (or individuals involved in the prospect of high value purchasing), to verify your identity we may also use the information for making a credit check on you and may share it with third parties to protect ourselves against fraud. We may carry out a search with a credit reference agency that will keep a record of our enquiry against your name. We may use a credit scoring or other automated decision making system when assessing your application. Details of which credit reference agency we have used are available on request
● Providing you with the service that you have requested
● We may from time to time send promotional e-mails to you with information about our products and services. If you would like to receive such information please click on the “I agree” button if/when prompted to do so. We may also contact you via post, e-mail or telephone in relation to the administration of your account or to provide a service you have requested.
PIU will retain the information for as long as we reasonably deem necessary for the purposes listed above. Once we have processed your transaction, we will only retain your full credit card data if you have asked PIU to do this, to make it easier for you to use the site for repeat purchases.
To enable you to sign in and personalize your online experience PIU uses “cookies”. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.
