Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to our FAQs page. Please click on the questions below to see the answers.


Do your prices include VAT?

Yes, all prices shown on the website are inclusive of VAT. As we serve many business customers we email VAT invoices for all orders placed through the website.

Can you provide a VAT invoice?

We can indeed! Once you’ve placed your order through the website you will receive an order confirmation email. This email also acts as a VAT invoice, providing all the information you need to claim back VAT from HMRC.

How secure is your site?

Our site has a Comodo secure SSL certificate which provides you with a secure connection for your transactions. In addition we use SagePay and PayPal to give you flexible, protected payment options. 

What happens if I want to order more than you have in stock?

Don’t worry, we have regular deliveries from all our trusted light bulb manufacturers. This means that if you require more than we currently have, we are able to quickly supply the stock you need. Continue with your order online and then call the sales office on 01494 880099 for estimated delivery times.

Can I change my order after it’s been placed?

Sure, your order can be amended at any point before it is out for delivery. Currently it is not possible to amend your order online, so you will need to speak with our sales team on 01494 880099.

What does ‘call for availability’ mean?

Occasionally items are out of stock and we are awaiting a delivery from the manufacturer. When this happens, the website will show the message ‘call for availability’ on the product page. This doesn’t stop you from being able to place the order, but it may mean delivery will take a few days longer than usual.

I have a discount code, where do I enter it?

Promo codes are redeemable online only and within the timeframe of when they are active. You can only use one promo code at a time and they should be entered in the shopping cart. That way, whether you decide to pay via our checkout or PayPal, the discount has already been applied. 

Where can I find information on returns?

We offer a no quibbles returns policy. To find out more read the returns section here.

What are the benefits of creating an account?

When you create an account, you’ll be able to save your delivery and payment information, saving you time when you next order. In addition you can also set up multiple delivery addresses and view your order history, again making repeat purchases easier. 

I’ve forgotten my password, what should I do?

You can request to reset your password by following a link on the account sign in page. Alternatively you can call our office and we can supply you with a new temporary password.

To change your password, login and navigate to the ‘Account information’ tab inside the ‘My Account’ area. Here you will see an option to change your password.
