Payment processing timeline

For online orders, payment is automatically taken when you place an order. This also applies to in-person transactions using a card machine.

Otherwise, for example orders placed over the phone, our policy is to process payment just before despatch. 

Payment is only taken for items that are in stock. Full payment is not due until the stock is available. You can pre-order any out of stock product without paying in advance.

Payment in full is required before despatch for all orders. For bespoke machines, for example those having digital readout equipment installed, payment is required before the work is undertaken in our workshops.
