Making A Purchase

Making a purchase is quick and easy. Browse our store and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you've finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

We accept credit card payment. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and Electron Solo.

When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between you and Michael Williams Engineering Ltd. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

Shipping and Handling

Shipping costs are calculated on a total packed weight basis and destination basis.

At present we can only deliver to the UK and Southern Ireland. Shipping to these destinations is calculated as per the following schedules:

UK Mainland Only (excluding Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands, Scottish Islands, Isles of Scilly, Isle of Mann, Channel Islands and the Isle of Wight):

  • Very small items @ £2.99
  • Small items @ £4.99
  • Medium items or heavy @ £9.99
  • Larger items, very heavy items and bird scarers @ £19.99
  • More than one bird scarer in a single transaction: free!

Non-mainland UK:

There is a surcharge added for courier and postal deliveries which depends upon your location

These prices are subject to VAT.

Delivery Schedule

We aim to dispatch packages within 24 hours of receiving your order. For orders placed in the mornings, Monday to Friday, we aim to dispatch packages the same day, subject to availability. This does not, however, guarantee next day delivery but the majority of our parcels arrive next working day or within 2 working days. Deliveries to Southern Ireland are usually received within 3 working days.

We regret that we can accept no liability for delays caused by factors outside of our control. These would include delays by the shipping company we have used and would include delays caused by technical difficulties on our website which may result in a delay in us receiving your order.

Back Orders

If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.

Tax Charges for orders made from the UK or the European Union, VAT is added.

Credit Card Security

When the order is placed at our website, credit card numbers are not held on any web site.


We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchases. If for any reason you are unsatisfied, please contact us and we will do our utmost to resolve the problem.
