|Are all of your products in stock?||
If the Add to Basket button shows we should have it in stock allowing you to place your order. We do not out source our warehousing. We have our own warehouse and do our own packing, as we believe the customer receives a better and more reliable service if we are in control up until we have to give it to the courier to delivery.
On the rare chance your item is not in stock, we will try our best to get in touch with you by email or phone before despatch time. If we are unable to get in contact with you in time, we will back order the out of stock item and send out the remainder of your order. If the item is not coming back into stock within 10 working days, we will refund the item and you will be notified by email. If a product shows as out of stock, the item will normally be back in stock within 10 working days. If not get in touch and we will send you an email when it is back in stock.

The times stated are those promised by the delivery companies involved, but sometimes delays occur out with our control.

|I can't find the answer to my question. What do I do?||
Click on "Contact Us" and let us know what your question is. We'll get back to you with an answer as soon as possible, normally the same day or the following working day.
|Is it possible to buy a gift for someone?||
You can send someone a gift by entering their name and address as the Delivery Address and your own as the Billing Address. Sorry we don't have a gift wrapping service at this time but no price details are sent with the parcels except international consignments.
|Is it possible to let me know when my parcel will be delivered?||
This is possible with our express deliveries. If you have supplied us with a valid email address or mobile number, interlink express will send you an email in the morning (around the time when your parcel is booked into the delivery drivers route) letting you know a one hour window when your parcel will be delivered.
We have been using this service for the last 2 years and it has been warmly welcomed by our customers. They have been able to plan their day more rather than sitting in all day waiting for the parcel to arrive, which is great news!
If you have not received the email by 10am please give us a call and we can find out for you when your parcel is due for delivery and give you a call back.
This service is available on the express delivery and the guarantee next day delivery service.

|Who will deliver my parcel?||
If you choose standard delivery, your parcel will be delivered by Yodel. They give the best price for a 72hrs delivery and have online tracking facilities plus no length restrictions! I know we all love the Royal Mail, but the long umbrellas are now too long to go via their network but this service is still available to you if you have only ordered folding umbrellas, which is good if you tend to collect parcels at your local depot. If you do want to order a long umbrella please remember we can delivery to a different address like a work address, this maybe a good idea if for example you live in a flat, as couriers find it difficult to gain access.
If you choose the express delivery, your parcel will be sent via Interlink Express. In our experience they are the current leader in delivering express parcels to private addresses. We get a very good professional service from them and they offer different timed next working day delivery services. With their free Predict service, they will let you know the exact hour they will be coming to deliver your parcel, via text or email, which mean you don't have to wait in all day for them to arrive.
International Orders going to Europe will go via DPD while the rest or the world and North America will go via Fedex, they are only a little bit more expensive to the rest of the world but worth it for the exceptional service and tracking facilities.
