The best way to do this is to contact us via phone (01903 786148) or email us ( to add to an existing order. We will then take payment for any additional items over the phone. We may alternatively ask you to place an additional order online and if possible we’ll combine the additional orders so that you’ll receive them in one delivery.

Can I place an order from overseas?
Yes we deliver worldwide. Delivery prices will vary dependent on the weight, size and destination. Once you’ve chosen your items, within the shopping cart, the website will automatically calculate the delivery price for your chosen destination. Delivery times vary on the destination, so please refer to our ‘International Delivery Times’ within the shipping and returns page. (Insert link). Please note that there are some exceptions where we are unable to deliver certain products to certain countries due to weight,  size and particular country importation requirements and if your needs fall within these categories then please contact us via email or by phone on + 44 (1) 1903 786148 and we will do our utmost to either help or explain why there is some restriction.

Please note: we are unable to dispatch goods prior to a cheque clearing so your order may take a little longer and can take up to 8 - 10 days. Please do not send any bank notes or coins as we are unable to accept payment in this manner.

Are my details secure?
Yes your card details are totally secure. We do not retain any of your card details. Registering an account with us is an easy way to keep your address and billing address in one place without having to re-enter information.

What should I do if my debit/credit card is refused?
If you are having any difficulties regarding payment transactions on our online website then please phone us on 01903 786148. Please alert us of any problems you encounter when using our online ordering system and we will do our best to ensure these do not happen again. If your debit/credit card is still not working we suggest you check your card’s status and funds with your bank.

I cannot place my order online, what should I do?
If you are having any difficulties using or placing an order on our website then please phone us straight away on 01903 786148. Please alert us of any problems you encounter when using our online ordering system and we will do our best to ensure these do not happen again.

How do I know if my goods are in stock?
We have over 2,000 items listed on the website and have most items in stock. On our website we display if an item is in stock with a green tick and the quantity available. However occasionally and inevitably we can run out of stock. If this is the case we’ll contact you, usually within 72 hours, to let you know. If a product is out of stock, in most cases, you are able to ‘pre-order’ the goods. Doing this, you will be charged straight away and the goods will be dispatched to your chosen delivery address as soon as they are back in stock. When pre-ordering, you take priority in a queuing system  on a pre-order date basis so that when the goods become available to ourselves these orders are fulfilled in this order over and above subsequent orders. We have found that this is the best and fairest way to secure your preferred items if they are currently unavailable.

If you require a specific quantity of stock which is greater than is shown as available on our website then please contact us as we may be able to contact the supplier to obtain additional stock at short notice.

Paying for an order

How will I know my payment has been successful?
Once your payment has been received you will receive an email, this will confirm your purchase. If you notice that you’ve inputted any incorrect details, whether it’s regarding an address or the incorrect item/quantity, please contact us with the correct information as soon as possible.

Do your prices include/exclude VAT?
All of the products on our website include the current applicable United Kingdom VAT.

I am VAT exempt. How do I remove the VAT?
If you are VAT exempt, usually because the delivery address is outside of the EU, the website will automatically deduct the UK VAT. Please be aware that you may however be charged import duty when the goods arrive in your chosen delivery country. This is not always the case but it can and does happen so this charge, if incurred, is unknown, and is therefore not able to be shown as an inclusive price on our website.

My payment has been declined, what should I do?
If your payment has been declined please phone us on 01903 786148 and speak to one of our customer service advisors. They can see the status of your order and advise on what action to take. If you are having any difficulties speaking to one of our members then email us at

Are receipts sent with deliveries?
Online: An invoice is included with your goods dispatched from our warehouse.
Over the phone: A PDQ receipt as well as an invoice is included with your goods dispatched from our warehouse.
Please Note: We don’t include an invoice in orders that are being sent to others on your behalf.  As an example, if you are purchasing an item(s) for a friend and are delivering it directly to them, we’ll include your name and address and inform them that the goods have been sent on your behalf and also include a hand written gift tag, if required

I have not received a confirmation email?
If you have not received a confirmation email within 72 hours then please either call us on 01903 786148 or email with your order number. We will be able to track down your order and payment details.

How do I amend an order?

Wine Cabinets / Wine Coolers
It is the customers' responsibility to ensure that the wine storage unit ordered will fit into your property and the final destination. All dimensions are available to view on each individual product on our website; the customer must therefore ensure that the unit is suitable. If the unit is ordered and when delivered, does not enter the property or destination for whatever reason, then a fee of 25% of the retail value will be charged to enable us to return the unit to our suppliers. This is ONLY providing that it is left in its original, unopened packaging. If the packaging of the cabinet is opened, the unit CANNOT be returned. This condition reflects the delivery policy of the manufacturers.

I would like an item that is not on the website. Can you source this for me?
We are always more than happy to see if any of our suppliers stock the product(s) you are after. Contact us with the product code and quantity you require (we need this information) and we will do our best to track it down!
