Non delivery:

If we send an item out and it cannot be delivered and is returned by the post office or carrier, and this is not the fault of the post office, carrier or ourselves, we will not send the item again until the postage cost is paid for the second delivery.

Also, if the item cannot be delivered and the fault is not of the post office, carrier or ourselves and a refund is requested, we will refund the price of the item but will charge for the outward postage cost in full and any cost incured in returning the item to ourselves in full (the term "in full" is calculated as being the full carriage cost charged to ourselves by the carrier company). If these goods are still required, we will not despatch them until the full carriage costs have been paid from the original failed delivery.

Deposits can be made against any of our goods which we then hold until your final payment. Deposits on live stock must be paid and collected within 7 days.

Special offers are only applicable at the time of purchase. Special offers where they are offered to beat a competitors price is only applicable on a like for like basis including delivery charges.

We display a Price Match Button on all our product pages. Price match requires you to complete a small form where you are asked for your name, email address, link to the competitors web site, their price and also what price you would like to pay for the item. In most cases we either price match or offer you a lower price that that of our competitor. The item has to be "like for like". In some cases we may not be able to match the price due to circumstances outside of our control - damaged goods, fire sale, clearance sale, end of line sale, wrong price displayed, business has closed down etc - if this occurs we will offer you a discounted price as near to the competitors as possible. In very rare cases where the price is extremely low and obviously wrong we may reject your request.

Free voucher offers (given when purchasing certain aquariums) can be used either in our shop or bought on-line via our web site. If the voucher is used on-line it does not include free delivery. Delivery will be charged at cost and will be included in the price of the voucher. Other promotions can not be taken with this promotion.
