Order FAQ

Delivery Timescale

Delivery timescales for our products vary and are clearly indicated on the product pages.

We will send you an email to confirm acceptance of your order soon after we receive your request. This will give an estimate of the delivery timescale. We will notify you if this changes and again send you an email to confirm dispatch when we pass your goods to our carrier.

Where available, order tracking information will be sent to you so that you can see the progress of your order through the delivery network.

Delivery outside of UK mainland

If you require delivery to an address to outside of the UK mainland then please use the "Copy the contents of your Shopping Basket" facility on the Contact Us page to send us your requirements. We will then email you a quote containing the appropriate delivery charges and send you an on-line invoice excluding VAT if required. Payment must be in UK pounds.

Making the best use of our site

We hope that you find the information on our website useful and that it helps you identify the products you require.

The "Your PC Builder" is the main tool for customising the SmaQ range and helps you choose additional software and hardware. The top of the page provides a summary of your system. Hold your mouse pointer over the details under "Your configuration" to remind yourselves which options you have selected.

If you require us to install additional software suh as printer drivers, don't forget to add the details in the "Extras" tab.

Once you have built your system you can click "Add to Basket".

Components and other none custom hardware are available on the products menu. Clicking "More" against individual product lines will dispay more details. Click "Add to Basket" to continue with your purchase.

Order Process

Once you have selected the items which you require and added them to your "Shopping Basket" you will need to accept our terms and conditions of contract and if you are purchasing a SmaQ system, acceptance of any third party conditions.

You can pay by credit/debit card or by using a PayPal account by clicking on the PayPal button. For your security, all account and delivery information is collected by PayPal. If you want to pay by cheque then please read this.

Once we receive your requirements then we will send you an email confirming acceptance of your order. This will also indicate our expected dispatch date. The despatch date will normally be five working days for Custom SmaQ systems and between one and two days for other items (see individual products for specifics).

If we encounter any issues which could result in a delay, we will let you know. Once your goods are ready for despatch we will email you again with specific details of the expected delivery date.

Payment by cheque

We accept payment by cheque. We will not despatch any goods until the payment has cleared (normally 3-5 working days), but in the case of SmaQ systems we will start to build your system once we receive your instructions.

To use this facility, add your purchase to the shopping basket in the normal way.

Once you are happy that the "Shopping Basket" shows your requirements, confirm acceptance of the contract terms. Click "Pay by cheque" and print the form. Complete the details and post it to us together with your cheque made payable to "Arnold5 Ltd".

Once we have received your order we will contact you by email to confirm acceptance and advise on delivery.
