Debit cards …

With the banks having withdrawn cheque guarantee cards, and the slow demise of cheques themselves, we accept debit cards for the payment of goods and services. There is, however a direct cost to us, both in having to hire the card reader, and also for every transaction that goes through, so we are having to make a 50p transaction charge, to help offset these costs.

PLEASE NOTE: we only accept DEBIT cards. Credit cards will not be accepted for ethical reasons. Business credit cards will also not be accepted due to the costs involved.

High Cost of Fuel takes its toll …

High Cost of Fuel takes its toll …

Due to the ever increasing diesel costs, we have been forced to increase our delivery fee to £10 with effect from 1st April 2011. We have tried to absorb the price hikes for as long as possible, but regret that we are now having to increase the charge to try and cover our costs. It wasn’t that long ago that it was costing us around £50 for a tank of fuel, today we are almost having to pay £100!

General Price Increase …

Due to ever increasing costs, we have been forced to review all our prices, and a general price increase came into force on 1st March 2010 – our first general increase since 2001! We have also added some extra categories to help better reflect the items we are handling. A new price guide can be downloaded here.

Essential Needs Launch Kindling Offer

In the course of providing furniture we find we have an abundance of good wood due to receiving broken pine beds, or tables. It goes against the grain (sorry!) to put this to landfill, so we are now offering big sacks of kindling (min 10kg) for £5. This offer is open to anyone, and is obviously subject to availability.
