We are aiming to be 'the best in the business'
With prompt delivery to match our superb technical customer support. Our policy is to hold in stock all items on this website and whilst, due to varying demand, we do not reach 100% availability we do achieve in the very, very high 90's - if we are aware that there will be a delay of more than one week, products are marked as 'Out of stock'. If we do not have a product that you order you will be emailed and have the option to wait or cancel.
When we ship your parcel we will send you an email which will include tracking information for parcels, you will also be emailed details of any part shipments.
Non UK delivery timescales vary from country to country between 2-7 days, delivery is usually by UPS.
Orders over 20Kg will be charged at a multiple parcel rate - e.g. orders weighing 21-40Kg will be sent in two parcels at a cost of twice the single parcel rate.
To find out the charge and delivery options for your delivery area please either login or enter your required delivery address details in the 'view basket' screen so we can calculate the S&OP Charge and hence your total order cost as you enter your order.

Alternate delivery address: A different delivery address from the account address of the cardholder may entered in the shopping basket.

'Do you part ship orders?' Rarely, if we send part shipments you will be emailed and it will be noted on the advice paperwork.
'Can I have goods shipped to an alternative address?' Yes, this is an option at the checkout stage.
'I have just placed my order and now realise that I wish to change it, what do I do?' No problem, our website has a half hour waiting time after ordering during which you can log back on and change your order. In the evenings and at weekends the time is extended to 11.30pm. After this holding time please contact customer services.
'Can I add to my order once it has been despatched?' No, you will need to place a new order.
'Do parcels need to be signed for?' Yes. As parcels may need to be signed for, please ensure that you give us a delivery address where someone will be able to sign for your package - perhaps your work address if the boss does not mind?

In the UK ParcelForce are able to allow you to collect from your local post office. Please note that we cannot accept instructions such as 'leave in greenhouse'.

'Why do you have a minimum Shipping & Order Processing Charge?' Connevans is primarily a wholesale trade organisation supplying education and health authorities. Unlike many trade suppliers we do not produce an inflated retail price list for private individuals and we do not have a minimum order value. Our shipping and order processing charge simply reflects the reality cost of processing low value mail orders - please judge us on the overall cost.
We do not offer a loan or trial service. However to give you peace of mind, orders with Connevans Limited are placed with the assurance that if, for whatever reason, you find the product unsuitable we will refund the cost of the product providing it is received by Connevans in an ʻas newʼ resaleable condition in the original undamaged product packaging. The product must be returned with proof of purchase and a covering letter explaining the reason for return, to arrive with us within 21 days of invoice date.
This offer of refund does not apply if you have used the products other than to assess whether they are satisfactory. Our definition of ʻas new resaleable conditionʼ includes being returned as originally packed with the original instruction booklets which have not been written in ‒ a repackaging charge will be made if we have to re-coil leads neatly or replace missing plastic bags or internal packaging etc. The Shipping and Order Processing charge will not be refunded.
We reserve the right to make a repackaging charge for products which have been ʻcut outʼ of specialised packaging for evaluation. If the product is not returned to us in a fully resaleable condition, we may deduct up to 30% of the original selling price from the refund amount or refuse a refund.
Items not covered: items ordered by special request, products that for hygiene reasons are unsuitable for return/refund and goods ordered against our advice.
In the United Kingdom Distance Selling Regulations give a customer the right to cancel up to 7 days after the receipt of goods.
