BEST TIMES TO VISIT

If you know exactly what you want and just want it ready-and-waiting so that you can pay and go - then any time during office hours is fine.

If you wish to see a selection of items or require a demonstration (tell us when you phone!), the best times are:
- Monday to Thursday 9am to 3pm
- Some Fridays, 9am to midday (but Friday is not a good day)
- Saturday, we are closed on Saturday
- Sundays 11am to 1pm

PARKING

See if you can park outside our door before hunting around for a parking space.

Parking restrictions apply Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. You will have ten minutes, then you are likely to get a £100.00 parking ticket. If you think you won't be able to check the goods and pay in ten minutes, go to the main reception at the front of the building and register your vehicle.

Please remember to make an appointment. If you turn up un-announced it will take (maybe) 5mns to discuss your requirements + 5mns to fetch your order from the warehouse + 5mns to process the payment + (maybe) 5mns for you to examine the items...and you might get a £100.00 parking fine.

There are no parking restrictions before 9am or on a Sunday. Out of hours, if Entrance 1 is locked please use Entrance 2.
