Customer Feedback:

Jonathan H said: "Just moved into a Victorian Terraced house, previous owner had gone artex crazy! Your product is amazing , left it on for 3 days & the artex peeled off in strips like a sheet of rubber matting & left the plaster really clean! Need to assess how much I'll need to clear the whole house - thanks so much it's going to save us a lot of money in re-plastering costs."  See more here.

Free Delivery:

Where products have been quoted as having free delivery or delivery included, this will not apply for Northern Ireland and the Highlands and Islands due to the excess delivery charges incurred reaching these locations. Delivery costs can be seen by entering your postcode into the basket. 

Why do we charge delivery?

A great many of our customers purchase multiple products, so if we build the delivery charges into each item we will in effect be charging delivery on every product in their basket. We think it is fairer to charge a single delivery cost for the contents of the whole basket once. Some products do have delivery included; this is typically because they are dispatched from another location, generally direct from the manufacturer, as there are restrictions to how they can be delivered due to their size, or if they are liquids, for example.
