We use a large amount of the equipment we sell so we can give you fantastic but impartial advice on the equipment you require. Unlike some other companies - our advice is not "margin" bias - We would rather you had the right equipment for the right job at a price to suit your budget. If you are happy with the equipment and our advice, we hope you will return for further equipment purchases or hire.

Credit Card Security
Security is probably one of the most significant concerns for both the shopper and the retailer during an online transaction. In reality an online transaction is probably more secure than a card transaction in a shop or conducted over the telephone or by fax, as the information transmitted online is highly encrypted using complicated logarithm combinations.All credit card numbers are encrypted when the order is placed using 128 bit encryption. They are not held in clear text on any web site. There is an option however for people to forward credit card information seperately. Please tick the appropriate box at time of ordering. You may send your card details via phone or fax. Alternative payments methods are available if you do not wish to use your credit card. We know of no cases of credit card fraud using our on-line ordering system. Any communication between the shopper and the SSL payment page is also encrypted to the maximum strength supported by the shopper's browser using TLS or 128 Bit SSL. Shoppers are also protected from fraudulent use of their card in a "card not present" environment, by their card issuers. The card issuers provides the right for shopper to dispute a transaction if the goods/services did not arrive or if the card was used fraudulently.
