Frequently Asked Questions

What is your query regarding?

Can you please send me a hard copy Catalogue?

Yes, you can fill the form in at or call our sales team on 0191 488 1112 or e-mail with your name and address and we'll get one sent out to you straight away. You'll normally receive it within 2 days.

Are all your products in stock?

We are very proud on the amount of stock we keep and aim to ship all our goods from our own warehouse for next day delivery. We do not 'drop ship' orders or wait for goods to be in stock before dispatching. For custom items, we will give an estimated delivery time.

On each product page there is a stock status where you can check if an item is in stock. We keep our website updated daily. Occasionally, our stock control may be wrong so if an order is placed that we cannot fulfil, we will contact you to inform the delivery time, offer an alternative product or refund. If an alternative product is offered that is more expensive, we will sometimes offer a discount.

Can you ship internationally?

Yes, we can ship to most countries in the world. Unfortunately our website does not allow customers to place orders online outside of the UK because of a wide variety of delivery costs. We typically offer an economy service but if you require an express service please let us know. Goods can typically be delivered within the EU in 3 working days and major countries such as the USA within 5 days. We are usually unable to deliver large lengths or bulky products abroad, however if there is justified volume we can arrange for a specialist freight quotation. 

Please make a list of all the products you require with a delivery address and send an e-mail to and we will be able to provide you a quite for delivery. If you would like to go ahead, we can send you a link to pay online with credit card, or pay over the phone, or by bank transfer. 

Can your steel products be galvanised?

The majority of our products are made from mild steel and are suitable for galvanising. Where products are known to have problems with galvanising, we will update our product pages and advise at the point of order. 

Due to the varying quality of galvanising plants and fabrication methods, we have found that some customers report issues with some products, however others have found them to be ok. For this reason, we are not able to accept responsibility if an assembled product has been damaged whilst being galvanised. 

Products made from cast steel are not recommended for galvanising. However, many customers have had success and we advise to take extra care. 

I can't find the product i'm looking for.

Occasionally mistakes can happen where products are missing from the website or located in the wrong place. Be sure to make use of the search box by searching for keywords or if you know the product code, enter that. If you still can't find something, just contact us and one of our advisors will guide you through the website.

If you know we do not stock an item call us on 0191 488 1112 or email as we may able to source it for you.

I've seen a product cheaper, will you match it or beat it?

Our prices are very competitive and a lot of the time we will already be cheaper than competitors however we can't be cheapest on everything. Due to the nature of our products it is hard to compare similar looking products like for like. There may be a variation in quality, style, size and availability etc so we aren't always able to offer price match.

We tend to look at the whole order and can offer discounts to beat a competitor's delivered price.

Which payment methods do you accept?

We accept all Visa and Mastercard debit and credit cards. We also accept posted cheques, bank transfers when placed over the phone or cash at our trade counter or for local deliveries.

How do I know if my payment has been successful?

Orders can be cancelled up until the order is dispatched. If the order has already been dispatched, you will need to pay the cost to return the goods.
