Dispatch information.

We endeavour to dispatch orders within 48 hours whenever possible.

This is due to the testing we carry out on all machines that our suppliers send to us. In some cases we will also ensure machines are sent with relevant tools or accessories so you can start using it straight away. 

If you urgently need a machine, and can see that we have stock, it is best to call our sales team, who will advise the shortest time we can have your order delivered to you. 

Orders placed on ‘back-order’ will not be dispatched within 48 hours, instead we will contact you and dispatch you of delivery time.
