Orders under £50.00 in value will be subject to a £4.50 minimum carriage charge.

3. Specifications

Due to continual improvements in the design & manufacturing methods strict accuracy of specifications & illustrations cannot be guaranteed. So that any product improvements can reach the purchaser as soon as possible the Company reserves the right to change design of specification without formal notice.
