Overseas Delivery

Orders from overseas customers are always welcome. For each non-UK order we receive, the goods are weighed and a price for delivery is then calculated. We therefore do not include the delivery charge at checkout. We use International Tracked & Signed as our courier. Your parcel is fully tracked during its journey and will require a signature at the time of delivery.

To reserve your products and to receive a quote for delivery to your address please proceed through the checkout. This payment is for the value of the goods in your shopping cart. You will be advised of the delivery cost in a separate email within 24 hours.

- If you wish to proceed with your order we will request the additional payment.
- If you do not wish to proceed with your order we will refund your initial payment within 24 hours.

Please note: Orders are not dispatched until we have received your confirmation and the completed payment.

For orders from within the EU, VAT at the current rate is included in the prices shown on this web site. If you are registered for sales tax within the EU, please include your sales tax number in the comments section, in this case your invoice will be adjusted to remove tax. For orders from countries outside the EU & Channel Islands, the total order value will be adjusted to remove the VAT. The buyer may be liable for import tax and duty at the rate set by their government.

Returning Goods

You may change your mind and cancel your order at any time from placing the order until 7 working days after you take delivery.

You will receive a refund of the product cost, net of any restocking charge (10%) made, within 30 days.  If preferred, a credit towards your account can be made.

Damaged/Missing Goods

Please contact us if you do not receive your order when expected. Although, next working day delivery is not guaranteed, there is rarely a delay. Parcels sent by our courier company can be traced through their tracking system. Call or email us with your concerns and we will investigate.

Do not accept parcels that appear to be damaged and notify us immediately if you have refused delivery or received a damaged parcel. If you do take delivery it is advisable to sign for goods as ‘unexamined’. Should the contents be damaged, you will need to answer enquiries and keep the packaging as evidence, otherwise we cannot accept responsibility for compensation. Damaged goods will be exchanged or refunded in full, plus any additional postage you incur.

Items out of Stock

Our policy is to fill 95% of orders from stock. If we are out of stock on any item priced over £4.95, you will be notified and the remainder of your order will be sent as soon as the goods are available at no additional carriage cost.

Prices are regularly reviewed in an effort to offer the best value, and we undertake to set prices competitively. Many of the products are imported, and fluctuations in the exchange rate and inbound carriage costs will affect pricing. When possible prices are reduced to pass savings onto our customers, although it is sometimes necessary to increase them.

All prices are shown inclusive of VAT (sales tax) at the current rate and will be charged to EU residents using the rate applicable at the invoice date. Non EU residents, and residents of the Channel Islands, do not pay sales tax for orders delivered to their residential address. George Weil is registered for VAT in the UK, our VAT number is GB233701983

Product Advice

We suggest you order the required quantity to complete a project and we will try to match items as closely as possible.
