The prices advertised on our website and any other literature are correct at the time of publishing but are subject to change. If any price change occurs before or after you have placed an order with us you will still only pay the price applicable to when the order was initially placed, and not therefore be expected to pay the altered increased or decreased amount.
All of our prices advertised include VAT at the standard rate.
If we do not have the product (or tortoise) you require in stock and cannot obtain it for you within a reasonable time frame then we will contact you (usually within two working days) to notify you of this. A similar product (or tortoise) maybe offered to you. It is your right to accept or decline this offer. No monies will be taken from your chosen credit or debit card until we have contacted you and you are entirely satisfied with the choice of your product (or tortoise).
