The majority of the product images displayed on Pro-Direct Sport websites and in advertisements and catalogues have been created by our own professional team of photographers, as most product is initially sold on a Pre-Order basis the image may display the manufacturer' sample, the final released product may have slight differences in terms of colour or pattern. Once the final released product is received at PDS if we notice any differences to the sample the product will be re-shot and image changed on the websites.
Disclaimer: Whilst every effort is made to ensure product images and descriptions are correct when submitted on PDS websites we will not be held responsible for any changes made by the manufacturers. Please though read our FAQ's on what to do if you are unhappy with a product you have received.
Our FAQ section tells you how to order and pay for products. It also addresses any questions you might have about delivery of your products, your right to cancel orders or return faulty products to us and our quality assurance.
As part of the initial order confirmation process we will request Pre-Authorisation of payment from your card issuer, this will show as a pending transaction for the full value of the order for up to 5 days, if stock is not available at PDS within that time the pending transaction will be voided releasing funds back into your available balance. When stock becomes available we will process a new transaction capturing relevant funds at that point. Please make sure you have adequate funds in your account around the stock due date.
Pro-Direct Sport reserves the right to decline orders for bulk or high value purchases and to change price and availability information without notice.

If goods are being delivered outside of the EU we will remove any VAT (Value Added Tax) applied at the prevailing rate by the UK government to goods purchased. Once the package reaches its destination country any customs or import duties levied by the government of the destination country must be borne by the recipient.
Pro-Direct Sport accept no liability for any additional charges levied by the government of the recipient country. By placing an order on our website the customer acknowledges the recipient accepts liability for any charges applied by their government (including, but not limited to taxes, duties, holding fees).
Pro-Direct Sport has no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country and are subject to change. Pro-Direct Sport would advise each customer to contact their local customs office for further information prior to placing any order.
Furthermore, Pro-Direct Sport will also not be liable for any further costs incurred as a result of customers refusing to pay the applicable customs charges and will charge accordingly for any charges incurred by Pro-Direct Sport as a result of the recipient's refusal to pay the applicable charge levied by Customs.
