Popular Products

All items listed within the “Popular Products” section of the website are ready for dispatch within 2 working days.

Please Note This only includes products that are listed in the “Popular Products” section of the website, if an item from our standard product ranges (a non popular product item) is added to any popular product order then the order will be manufactured and dispatched as a standard product range order (information listed below).
 

Standard Product Ranges

Because of the specialist and unique nature of the products and trim that we manufacture, we will more than likely be manufacturing your order, especially for you.

Lead times vary from week to week (the 10 day period at the end of a month/beginning of a month is the busiest time of month) and month to month (the summer months, or when the weather is nice, are our busiest months). And, in addition to this, the 8 week period before & after Christmas and the 8 week period before & after Easter are our busiest times of the year (the Easter period is our busiest period).
