Availability times depend on product and range from 1 week (in stock or stored by a proximate supplier) up to 8 or 10 weeks (for certain long lead items which need to be manufactured and shipped to us from distant places)

For courier orders, availability time will be specially shortened where possible (ie express handling also within our and our suppliers organizations).

We have tried to make as much information available as possible, to help you evaluate shipping costs. Due to the nature of our goods, given our international shipping practice and depending on your order size and structure, our quotes may include more interesting shipping options or costs than can be deduced from information displayed on our web site.
