How does the order process work?

We hold all parts in component form here in Calne, Wiltshire. Once your order is placed we process it onto our SAP Business One system where a build is generated, along with a delivery note. Our production team take charge from here and the paperwork is taken by our team of warehouse pickers who locate all the individual components to build your product. Once picked, the parts are then taken to our assembly bays where our skilled operators fully assemble your product. As soon as the item is assembled and processed through our quality control, our dispatch team pack it and the goods are prepared for delivery. We use an outsourced carrier to deliver the goods, generally on a next day delivery service for stock items.

Yes, they do! Our ranges come with a 6-month warranty as standard.

Are you able to offer drawings or 3D models of your castors?

Once you have signed up for this facility you will be able to download step and dwg files. If you require the drawings in another format, then please contact us.

Does the amount of castors fitted affect the weight loading they can take?

Castor configurations will affect the load calculations as one or more castors may potentially lift from the floor on uneven surfaces, thus removing their share from the overall loading.  An allowance for this must be made, and so the castor load capacities along with uses and characteristics of each configuration can be found in our buying guide.
