Prices and Payment
Prices shown are in UK pounds British Sterling and include VAT at 20% where applicable. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Switch, Delta, Electron and Maestro. We will accept payment by Bank Wire Transfer, details available on request. If you are shopping from outside the UK, place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to your own currency. This rate will vary and we have no control over the currency rate. Please note that if paying by personal cheque, funds have to be cleared before products or services are supplied. Five to seven working days are usually required to clear cheques, which should be made payable to Guitar House Ltd. Cheques should be mailed to Guitar House, 6 Church Street, Uckfield, East Sussex TN22 1BJ, United Kingdom. We only accept cheques drawn on a UK bank account and payable in GBP.
In order to combat card fraud we may ask for additional ID or make special arrangements for delivery where a signature is required. We can only ship to the address of the registered card holder unless prior arrangements have been specially agreed with us. Occasionally we may ask for bank transfer rather than credit card purchase for some items.
We aim to send your order out within 24 hours if ordered between Monday and Friday (9am-2pm). This means that your order could be with you as early as the next working day. In some cases your order can take longer but our aim is to process the order as soon as possible. We aim to deliver goods to you within the time indicated by us but we sometimes may not be able to give an exact delivery time or date. We will inform you by email when goods have been dispatched. Orders will only be shipped once we have cleared funds.
Back Orders/Cancelling An Order
If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. We may contact you to suggest an alternative and if this is acceptable to you, will be sent as a replacement item. The price may be adjusted if the goods are of a differing value to the item ordered. You can cancel your order by email or in writing if you would rather not wait.
We aim to keep our website one hundred percent up to date. However, stock levels are not always totally accurate.
In the instance that an ordered item is in fact out of stock, it may cause some delay to your order. We will always notify the customer if this occurs. The customer then has the option to:
- accept the delay in receiving the goods
- cancel the order
- contact one of our sales supervisors for an alternative
If travelling to the store to view a specific item advertised on our website, please be advised to contact the store before travelling to ensure the item is in stock.

If you have any query about your order such as dispatch date or specific information of products in our store, please telephone +44 (0) 1825 766001 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

You can now recycle your old electrical items with us.
If you’re buying a new electrical item, we will recycle your old one for free.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste.
Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
We can help
We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old electrical items. If you wish to take advantage of the WEEE scheme then please arrange this in store at the following address:
Guitar House Ltd
6 Church Street
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
