Orders are acknowledged by e-mail on receipt.  Orders are accepted on the basis that the items ordered are available and we will inform you if items are out of stock and the consequent delay.


We accept debit and credit cards through the secure payment gateway Pay Pal and Stripe.  We do not store your credit card details on our website or our server.  The payment transaction is dealt with by Stripe using their integrated 3rd party SSL secure payment solution.

We further inform you that charge cards are subject to validation and authorisation by the issuer.  If a card is refused for whatever reason we will contact you, but we will not despatch your order until payment has gone through.

For telephone orders, we will ask for further ID such as a passport or drivers licence and will only dispatch to the billing address of the card used.

We also accept payment by cheque, made payable to “Tim Best Direct.”  Please write your cheque guarantee card, expiry date, issue number, and your address on the back of your cheque.  We will await cheque clearance prior to shipping your goods.


We make every effort to ensure your purchases are delivered within the time frames below, but as this is out of our control we cannot guarantee these times. Goods shipped to countries outside UK may be subject to customs’ charges, taxes or import duties.  These charges are never included in our prices and are not for our account; they are not our responsibility.
