Making A Purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our Catalog, click on any items that you wish to buy and add them to the shopping basket. After you have finished your selection, enter your shopping basket and click on “Proceed to Checkout”. You will then be asked for a few details that we need to be able to satisfy the order.

If you require any help using our site please feel free to contact us by telephone or email.

IMPORTANT NOTE! Customers from outside of Europe should place their orders online and await a shipping quotation. You will then be asked for payment of the total before we can satisfy the order.

Shipping And Handling

All shipments are insured.  It is the duty of the recipient to check that the item has arrived in an undamaged condition BEFORE signing for safe receipt.  Any damage should be highlighted to the delivery driver and reported to xact audio design immediately.

PLEASE NOTE: Large items are delivered by courier. Delivery will be attempted twice and on each occasion the courier will leave a card with instructions on how to collect your goods or re arrange delivery. If you fail to contact the courier to arrange re-delivery or collection from their local depot the goods will be returned to us. If this happens we will levy a 25GBP admin fee and you will be required to pay the cost of re-delivery if required.

REMEMBER when ordering goods ensure that there will be someone at the delivery address to accept and sign for goods or to respond to any card left by the courier within 24hrs.
