Ordering

What is your Best Price Policy?

We set highly competitive prices for all our products. If you find any of our products in the UAE cheaper sold elsewhere with the same service conditions, we’ll match that price for you.

The product must be in stock at the competitor. The price has to apply to an identical individual product in terms of make, model, size or colour. We don't match prices only available via 3rd party websites, or with voucher codes.

We don't match clearance pricing. The price must be valid at the time of purchase and cannot be reclaimed post purchase.

Can I cancel an order online?

It is not possible to cancel an online order without contacting one of our service representatives.. Please contact us as soon as possible if you wish to cancel or amend your order, we are always happy to help.

I am purchasing a present, can I have it gift wrapped before delivery?

Of course! We offer this service free of charge to all our Reward Club customers. Please select this option on the check out page when you fill out the payment details.

All orders paid for by credit card are pre-authorized immediately after the order is taken for the entire amount of the order, including any backorder items. However, the billing of these orders only takes place once the goods have shipped.
