Updated Delivery Prices

Updated Delivery Prices

As most SME owners and managers would know, courier & Royal Mail prices continue to rise (seemingly unfettered). Even with variable Fuel Levies, many of the courier prices we monitor seem to jump 5-6% most years. We can’t help but wonder what costs are actually rising, when fuel (the main cost) is external to that part of their price structure? Still, most of our customers agree that a reliable service is the most important consideration. Following a series of increases from our carriers, we can no longer absorb these increases and have had to raise our delivery prices. Factoring in the significant differences in the cost of different services, we have had to modify the structure of our charges to accurately reflect the costs we pay. Where cost-effective, we have sought to offer an alternative service (Royal Mail Special Delivery). Customers ordering more than £100 (excl VAT) receive free delivery to UK Mainland addresses. Customers in other locations will also benefit as the applicable Delivery Charge will be reduced by an equivalent value (currently £7.75). You can find the different delivery options on our website Help & FAQ Section (click on... Read more

Deliveries to Residences & other Non-business addresses

Due to the high rate of instances where no-one is available to sign or where re-delivery is required, TNT now levies us a surcharge for these services. We realise that many customers genuinely operate a business from their home address. Unfortunately, if your postcode is recognised as residential, the surcharge is unavoidable. Details are shown in the Delivery Charges & Policy section of the Help & FAQ page on our website. In such cases, we suggest you give us an alternative business address, where your package can be signed for and be safe until you can collect it. Such places may include your employer's address (if you work from home), or a local business (if you know the owner well), including village shop, garage or pub. We can also offer a 2nd Day service by Royal mail, although this is only cost effective for packages less than 1Kg. Read more

Changes to Trading Terms & Price List

Changes to Trading Terms & Price List

Effective 2 April, 2013, please note that: All Cover Cap & Screw products (except for Electroplated Snap-Caps), are now sold in multiples of 1,000 pieces.  We feel our prices are such that for most customers, this should not be an unreasonable requirement.  For customers unwilling to order this minimum quantity, a link to our Distributors & Resellers is available on the “Buy” tab on each product page.  Many of these businesses are happy to sell quantities of as few as 10 caps.  For Electroplated Snap-Caps, we still offer quantities of 1,000, 500 or 250 pieces, and (only for Electroplated Gold Snap-Caps) a new quantity of 100 pieces.  This should give customers more opportunity to purchase a small quantity at an affordable price.  Customers requiring quntities less than these amounts should contact one of our Distributors & Resellers. There is NO minimum order.  So long as you order at least 1,000 of any colour and type of cover caps, or one of the quantities we offer the Electroplated Snap-Caps, then you've already met the Minimum Order! With regular price rises in fuel costs, our couriers have applied a number of... Read more

New Trading Name

New Trading Name

We've Changed our Trading Name! On Tuesday April 2nd, Pro-Dec Products Ltd will begin trading under the name ScrewCaps UK. Although we first used the Pro-Dec name in the UK in the 1970’s, we have had to make this change as a number of unrelated businesses have since chosen (unimaginatively!) to market their products under the same name. To coincide with the new trading name, we are launching a brand-new website:   www.ScrewCapsUK.com.   This new website will become active by 10am on Tuesday April 2nd. As well as presenting all the product information you should ever need, in a brand-new easy-to-find layout, we have     photo galleries of our products being used     product support information about each product     reviews on each product – you are most welcome to make your own product review of any caps you have purchased. You can easily check availability of any colour cap in any product.  You can also use our Colour Matching Guide to quickly and easily find the best ScrewCaps UK colour to match more than 2,800 board & surface finish materials used in the UK (including...
