Please scroll down for directions.

Please make an appointment, so we can ensure that staff have time available to assist you. We operate from a unit on an industrial estate, not a shop, not even a showroom, so please let us know which items you would like to see and what time (to the nearest hour) you wish to call. You will be encouraged to open and check the items, to make sure that they are suitable for your needs.

Payment methods accepted:
- cash
- bank transfer using your own mobile device

Payment methods NOT accepted

- card (credit card, debit card, charge card, birthday card...any card)
- cheque (personal cheque, company cheque...any cheque)

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 of an expensive item, the best times are:
- Monday to Thursday 9am to 4pm
- 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 the result is 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.

SELLING

If you are selling second hand / antique items please bring identification.

From a distance you can see a big transmitting mast on top of the building (look to your left, look upwards). Outside is a green sign FLEXSPACE, TO LET. Above the main entrance is the word FLEXSPACE. RECEPTION. Fixed to the fence by the main entrance is a sign "Tony & Maria's Cafe". The nearest turning (opposite) is Caxton Way. Still can't see the building? Give up and go home.

Turn left by the café sign then right at the end. You are now in the back car park, driving along the back of the building.

- ignore the next door unless you are collecting parcels
- the next door is the office, for visitors (QUICKTEST on the door)
If you get to the ramp you've gone too far.
