Reserved orders

We do not usually “reserve” goods. Our policy is that reservation of stock is done on a case-by-case basis depending on the client business history and the type of valve concerned.

For clients who have paid thousands of pounds (GBP) in the past, we sometimes reserve goods for a maximum of 6 weeks.

After 6 weeks we will write and expect your confirmation of order and payment or shipping instructions within two weeks. Failing this, your goods may be returned to stock and offered for sale elsewhere.
