Q:- I have not received my order...
A:- We normally process and dispatch orders within 24 hours. This means that most products are usually delivered in 2-5 working days. Occasionally due to postal delays, particularly at times of the year when the postal service is very busy, they can take longer.
We have to allow up to 14 days before we are able to start tracing lost parcels, unfortunately we cannot do anything for you until this time has expired. Please send us an email if you do not receive your item(s) within this period so we can help to retrieve your goods. We apologise for any delay.
Q:- My delivery has not arrived by Royal Mail?
A:- The Royal Mail state that 90% of their First Class mail arrives the next day, but if yours doesn't they have the following advice:
Is it less than 4 working days since your mail should have arrived? If so, hold tight, it's probably on its way but may have been held up by an incomplete address, no postcode, or unusual circumstances.
Is it more than 4 days since your mail should have been delivered? If so, your mail is officially delayed and you should check with your neighbours to see if a parcel has been left with them, check any outhouses you might have where mail may be left if it cannot fit through your letterbox and contact your local sorting office to see if the item has been returned to the depot as undelivered and awaiting collection.
Have 14 days past since the item was posted to you? The Royal Mail will now class your item as lost and we can either send you a replacement or give you a refund. Please send us an email, to email@example.com, stating your order reference number and confirming that you have never received the item as we will pursue the issue with the Royal Mail for compensation and your email/letter will be used as evidence. We cannot refund or replace items that the Royal Mail has lost until 14 days have passed.
Q:- When I ordered I didn't receive a stock warning but now the part is out of stock?
A:- Our web site uses a realtime stock system which changes constantly throughout the day. In the rare event that two customers order the same product at the same time with only one of the product left in stock, neither customer gets a stock warning and only one customer gets the last item in stock. Your order will be placed on back order and despatched as soon as new stock arrives.
Q:- How long will I have to wait for a replacement / refund?
A:- We aim to complete most RMA's within 2-3 days, from receipt of items. The turn around time depends on each specific RMA and any backlog we may have.

A:- If you are returning a product make sure the item being returned is sufficiently packed and includes a fault report.
Q:- Why do i need to include a Fault Report and what is one?
A:- This needs to be included with every faulty product that is being returned as this will be used by our technicians to replicate the fault. A fault report must include the Following information; CPU Speed, Motherboard Make/Model, PSU Make/Model, Memory Make/Size, any Peripherals that may have been connected e.g. Printer/scanner/external CD/DVD Rom/Writer or Hard drive and the actual fault of the product.

A:- If you were not available to take receipt of your order at the time delivery was attempted, you will have had a Courier Card left with information regarding your order. Please follow the instructions on the card in regards to receiving your order.
Once the courier has attempted delivery, you then become responsible for either rearranging delivery of your order, or you may have to go to your local Couriers depot and collect your items. Usually couriers will only hold a parcel for 2-3 days and attempt re-delivery automatically, if they have been un-sucessfull and have had no contact from you they will return the order pack to us, at which point we will have to charge you again to redeliver the order.
