The only time goods are withheld is if your account is on ‘Stop’ or you are over your ‘Credit Limit’, or when goods are out of stock and are due into us in the next few days. We will notify you if any of these apply to your order. Goods can be collected from our Cash and Carry with a minimum 4 hours notice.

If your delivery note is marked ‘Temporarily out of stock, please re-order’ then you need to order goods again on your next order.
DELIVERIES VIA OUR CARRIERS: As you know, carriers deliver goods to you from our warehouse. Please inform your ‘Goods Inwards’ and members of your staff that before signing any consignment note they must check your delivery for the following:

We cannot be held responsible for short deliveries where a clear signature has been received for a total delivery. If there are any problems with your delivery it must be noted on the carriers consignment note. We then need to be informed via our sales office within three working days & confirmed in writing.
