We do not have a minimum order value. However our carriage paid order is £100 nett excluding VAT. Any orders below this amount will be subject to a £10 small order carriage charge.
We are happy to supply samples of all of our products. All samples are chargeable, however, there is no carriage charge even when under the minimum order value. All we ask is that the items are returned at your own cost within 1 month and in A1 condition. All samples must be returned within 1 month from the invoice date. Failure to do so will result in a 25% handling fee.
Cancellation & Amendments Of Orders
Once we receive an order it is immediately placed with SLV in Germany in order to ensure the quickest delivery possible for you. Due to the size and global nature of SLV this means that we are unable to cancel or amend any orders as the order is already being processed.
Delivery will be 3 - 4 working days direct from Germany to site or store - this does not include the day of ordering if after 12pm. A small amount of items such as Eutrac parts and lamps are kept in our UK warehouse. Any items stocked in our UK warehouse will be sent on a next working day delivery, if ordered by 3pm.
Our minimum order value is £100 nett, any orders under that value will be subject to a £10 carriage charge, unless otherwise agreed with a member of our sales team.Express Next Day Delivery
If your order is urgent we are able to offer an express next working day service from Germany at a freight cost based on the weight of the order.
All express delivery orders must be received by 12pm in order to qualify; anything received after will be treated as being received on the next working day.
