We may require additional verification or information before accepting any order. Our policies as to delivery and returns apply as set out in these Terms of Use.

Purchasing & Payment

the applicable price for the relevant goods confirmed by NBHC; and 
the delivery and handling fee specified on the website at that time. 
Your order and credit card details are safe and secure. We are unable to accept COD charges. Payment must be cleared before the goods are dispatched.

Delivery, Pickup & Shipping Information
All orders placed through this website are subject to confirmation and acceptance by NBHC. NBHC or its agent will deliver the goods you order to the address you specify in your order, within the agreed time frame, subject to their availability. Where the goods are not available we will notify you of this as soon as possible. Anyone at the delivery address who receives the goods will be presumed to be authorised to receive the goods.

Time of delivery depends on the method of shipping requested, the type of goods being shipped, and the country of destination. Typically delivery is between 1-10 business days. On rare occasions the customs agency within the destination country may choose to delay individual shipments as a random security measure, these delays can be 2-4 weeks or up to 8 weeks on very rare occasions.

Some items (i.e. dangerous goods) may take longer as it is up to the freight company as to how to transport these goods safely.

Title & Risk
Title to the goods purchased on this site does not pass from NBHC to you until we have received payment in full for the goods. All risk in the goods passes to you upon delivery.

Orders are processed on a first-come first served-basis and we will be considered to have accepted your order only by delivering the goods. If we cannot accept your order for any reason, we will notify you by telephone or email.
