1. I’m an existing account customer, how do I register?

If your company has a Trade Account with us, please contact us so that we can add your details to the existing account. If you contact us by phone we can set you up almost immediately.

If you contact us by email, please allow 2 working days and please include the following details: title, full name, telephone number, delivery point account number(s), and the first line and postcodes for any delivery addresses for which you’ll be ordering.

2. Why do I need to register to use this website?

You don’t need to register if you only want to browse our products. However, if you order something, we need a few extra details, such as your address.

We’ll save these details so that you won’t have to enter them again if you come back to the website (which we hope you will!) We’ll also save details of every order you make so that you can check the status of pending orders, look back at what you’ve bought previously, or quickly repeat an order.

3. How can I find the products I’m looking for?

There are several ways to find a product.

You can use the product search which is on almost every page of the website (except the checkout pages). Alternatively you can browse products by category: choose ‘SEE OUR CATEGORIES’ from the menu at the top of the page and select the category you want. 
Depending on your chosen category or search term, you may see extra options at the left hand side of the page which will help you to filter your results further and find what you’re looking for more quickly.

If you know the codes for the products you wish to order, you can use the ‘Quick Order’ feature which can be found within the ‘My Account’ section of the website. Simply type in the code for each product, along with the quantity which you wish to order, then click ‘Confirm’ to check availability and add to your basket.

If you have a bespoke product agreement with us, you can view your bespoke products by going to the ‘My Account’ section and selecting the ‘My Product List’ link.

4. How can I place an order?

When you find an item you want to buy, click ‘Add to Cart’.

You can also change the number in the box next to the Add to Basket button if you more than one. Once you have added all the products you want to your basket, follow the Checkout link.

If you haven’t already registered or signed in, you’ll be asked to do so at this stage.

You can pay by credit card or (if you have a Trade account with us) you can place your order and be invoiced later.

9. Why isn’t my product review showing on the website?

We’d love to hear what you think of our products – good or bad – but we do have a few simple guidelines for product reviews.

We won’t publish (or may edit before publication) any product reviews which:

  • Are abusive or offensive; 
  • Contain web links which we consider to be irrelevant / spam; 
  • Are not relevant to the product (eg. comments about delivery); 
  • Are unduly promotional of other products (we’re happy to be compared to others and don’t mind if you want to tell us about similar products, but we’re not offering free advertising space!) 
  • We believe to be fake or influenced by other factors.

We will remove or edit any review which doesn’t stick to these guidelines. If you believe your review has been unfairly removed or edited, please get in touch. Note that, because we check all reviews before they’re published, it may be a few days before your review appears on the website.

10. How can I get a trade account?

If you want to request a trade account, please get in touch via our contact form or by phoning 020 7062 0600.
