I do not have a credit account with you. How do I order straightaway?

Pay by any standard credit or debit card, or post us a cheque made payable to "Carousel". There is also a credit account application form on the website which you can print off and send to us/your bank. Because banks take time to reply, we recommend you place your first order by card or cheque.

I sometimes place orders to be delivered elsewhere. Is this possible?

Yes. When you are on the checkout page, please add the new delivery address at the bottom of your personal details page.You can of course repeat or amend this order another time with the delivery address already present.


We have several members of staff, so can we have more than one registered online buyer?

Yes! Please tell your colleagues to register their email and password as a normal new user, then just e-mail us saying that you want their email address to be associated with your account.

What is the postal option about?

If you place an order for lighter items it may be possible to post these at a lower price than our normal courier service. If so, the website will present this as a delivery option in the drop-down on the basket page.  


I have forgotten my password. What do I do?

Just use the forgotten password facility that comes up when you try to register. Your password will be e-mailed to your registered email address.
