- How will the Royal Mail & Parceforce strikes affect deliveries?
Royal Mail & Parcelforce postal workers are to take strike action on;
- 30th September
- 1st, 13th, 20th, 25th October
- 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 28th, 30th November
- 1st & 2nd December
Some of these days, the strike action will only impact parts of Royal Mail & Parceforce’s operations, nevertheless, this will affect our deliveries for orders placed on the strike action days. Therefore, we recommend that you think about stocking up to make sure you have plenty of supplies if you have a busy period in the run up to Christmas, as express delivery will be unavailable during the strike action days.
We apologise for any disruption this will cause but we will be working to get your items delivered as soon as possible.

- Why is my item out of stock?
Unfortunately, Covid-19 has affected the country in many ways, one of them being supply chains. Everything is taking longer to get to the UK, items are being held in customs, and due to demand, factories just cannot keep up with production.
We are working tirelessly with manufacturers across the world to get products back in stock as quickly as possible. We endeavour to keep stock numbers on the website as accurate as possible and all customers are updated on the progress of their orders.
Out of stock items
- What happens if I order something and I am then told it is out of stock?
We endeavour to ensure all stock numbers are updated regularly on our website. However, with some fast moving products this is not always possible.
If your item is out of stock, we will always call you as soon as possible to let you know and give you the following options:
- You can swap your item to something else of a similar nature that is in stock or
- You can put your item on back order (please see below for details) or
- You can choose to have a refund for that item
- What is a back order?
If you decide to place an item on back order, the item will be dispatched as soon as it is back in stock.
If you have ordered other items as well, we will give you the option to wait for the whole order or send them out separately. This will be at no extra cost to you.

- What is the lead time on manufactured items?
If we do not have an item in stock, our normal lead time for manufactured items is 6-8 weeks for most items. SuperTubs are currently 12 weeks.
This is because each manufactured item is designed and carefully hand crafted by our in-house engineer here in Shropshire.
We would always recommend that you give us a call to discuss current lead times, as they do vary due to demand.
Due to Covid-19 and issues with supply chains, in the worst case scenario your item should be completed within 6-8 weeks.
- Do you make bespoke items?
Yes. We are always happy to discuss different options with you regarding a bespoke item. Our engineer is highly skilled in what he does and he will try his very best to meet your requirements.
Bespoke items can sometimes take a little longer to produce as they are designed from scratch.
Please note – bespoke items will require a 20% non-refundable deposit and are non-returnable.
- Do I have to pay delivery on a manufactured item?
Depending on the item, you may be required to pay for a pallet delivery. This will be discussed with you at time of purchase.
