General News :-
We are catching up on the backlog of orders but delivery
time is around 10 working days at
present. It will be a little while before we can get back to our usual three days turnaround.
We are working hard to
clear the backlog of orders. Please do not telephone to chase your
order unless you sent or telephoned it over 14 days ago. Ten minutes
on the telephone looking up an order sent only last week will prevent
two more customers from getting their parts on time..!
Our answer phone gets constantly blocked with messages, please browse
the Website before calling as you may find your answer there. We receive
so many calls asking 'I have looked at your Website, do you sell Tilley
or Primus parts?'.....!
Remember to keep spares handy for emergencies, we still have customers
who phone an order on a Wednesday when they are going away on a
Saturday...! Order your spares now, don't wait until the last minute and
expect the parts by the next day...!
