Delivery options for Finance orders:

The cut off point for finance agreements to be dispatched the same day is 1pm. The order must be completed in its entirety, i.e. the finance agreement complete by the cut-off point. If an application is referred, delaying the order completing, this may mean that your order cannot be shipped until the following day. How quickly you receive it will depend on the postage method chosen when placing the order.

Finance agreements will only be ready for dispatch when the agreement has been completed and any documentation signed.

Please be aware that Finance orders cannot be shipped to an alternate address and will only be dispatched to the billing (finance agreement) address, regardless of whether you choose an alternate delivery address when placing your order. We will always endeavour to contact you to remind you of this before dispatching your parcel, but if we cannot contact you your parcel will be dispatched to your billing address so as not to delay your receipt of the goods.

Finance agreement orders will be sent using either using Royal Mail Special Delivery before 1pm or Parcel Force, depending on the size and value of the order, to the billing address, unless you are contacted to specify an alternative delivery method.

Interest Free Finance Offers

This option is available only on selected products. Only eligible items will show the option for Interest Free Finance. This will also be outlined in the "Promotions" tab.

The length of the Interest Free period varies by eligible product. No alternatives are available than the ones shown. If no Interest Free Finance is showing on the finance calculator on a product, it is not available on that item.

If your basket contains a mixture of items, some with an Interest Free Credit offer on them and some without, you will not be given the option to apply for Interest Free Credit. In this case you would need to place a separate order for the item with the 0% Finance / Interest Free offer. We will happily combine multiple orders and refund additional postage charges if applicable.
