Despatch of Goods aims to despatch the many specialist goods we supply as soon as possible so that you should receive them within approximately 5 working days. Where goods are not in stock, we will advise you and despatch them as soon as possible when they become stock items. Some items are only supplied to order. These items will be supplied according to the manufacturer's lead-times which can be between 4 to 15 weeks depending on the product.
