Why should I buy my Shimpo wheel from Potclays?

Potclays are the ONLY OFFICIAL, AUTHORISED UK & EIRE DISTRIBUTOR for Shimpo wheels and pugmills and we can confidently offer you peace of mind that should something go wrong, we will do our utmost to resolve the problem and have the full support of Shimpo Japan in doing so.

Ours are NOT GREY IMPORTS: Grey imports are those that don't follow the usual route through the manufacturer's own distribution system and therefore may not meet the UK's rigorous safety standards. As we are the only official, authorised distributors for the UK and Eire, our Shimpo products are supplied direct from Japan on an authorised basis and are manufactured specifically for the UK market, therefore they have the correct electrical ratings, plugs, etc. and thus comply fully with UK regulations.

Full and comprehensive technical/after sales/warranty support: Our technical advisor is only a phone call away. You're never far from help when you buy from Potclays.

We have regular shipments from Shimpo Japan, so in the unlikely event that something should go wrong with your wheel during its warranty period, if necessary we can obtain spare parts quickly.

  • Delivery and Returns

    Delivery & Returns

    Delivery

    Your carriage charge will be calculated at checkout based upon the volumetric weight of your order, and your location. If for any reason your delivery charge cannot be calculated at checkout, you will see a message explaining that our sales team will contact you with a quote. You will be under no obligation to accept this and have the right to cancel your order. 

    We deliver throughout the UK and overseas using a trusted third party distribution network. We typically use Royal Mail or FedEx for parcels and TLP Group for pallets. Delivery is to kerbside or letterbox only. Please note that pallets are non-returnable. 

    Delivery Service Levels

    Standard: Due to unprecedented order volumes, please allow up to 10 working days for deliveries, but please bear in mind that your order may be delivered in as little as 1 working day.  

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    We are bound by the terms and conditions of our carriers therefore we cannot pursue a claim if these instructions are not followed:-

    Special Delivery Conditions: You must inform us at point of order of any special conditions such as restricted access or opening times, otherwise you will be liable for any consequential costs incurred.

    Damage/Missing Items: You must check your delivery carefully before providing a ‘clear’ signature to the driver. Outward signs of damage/disruption to packaging must be noted alongside your signature. You must notify Pottery and Pints Ltd of damage or missing items within 24 hours of delivery.

    When placing your order, please ensure that you:

    • Provide a mobile telephone number and email address in case we need to contact you and to enable SMS delivery alerts where available.
    • Notify us if you have any special conditions such as obstructions to delivery and/or require advance notice of delivery.
    • Inform us of opening times/shutdown periods to avoid the risk of additional charges for failed delivery attempts.
    • Inform us if there will be no-one available to check and sign for the delivery. It is best if you are in to accept the delivery but we are able to deliver if you are not present and the driver will determine the most appropriate positioning for your goods. With unattended deliveries, Potclays cannot accept any liability for theft, product deterioration or consequences arising from the positioning of your delivery.

    Kerbside delivery of most pallet consignments involves offloading from the vehicle using a tail-lift, as close to your property as is deemed safe by the driver. A manual pallet truck may be available but this is not guaranteed. Manual pallet trucks can only operate on a flat, level, concreted, or similar firm surface. They cannot operate on slopes, gravel, earth, grass or any other type of non-solid surface. Drivers are not insured to move goods into the consignee's premises unless otherwise arranged at point of order. In the case of goods such as kilns & equipment special arrangements may be required with extra assistance organised: This must be discussed and agreed with us at point of order. If you have any concerns about delivery, please contact us on 07514 788870

    Delivery times are not guaranteed. If your goods are lost in the post, there is a period of 14 days before any claim for compensation can be made. Although carriers will endeavour to deliver within the agreed timeframe, unexpected delays due to weather conditions, breakdowns, traffic and other factors may cause some disruption to schedules.

    Subject to our prior consent having been obtained, products can be returned to us in an unused condition within 30 days of invoice date.  An administrative charge will be levied of 10% of the nett value plus transport, but subject to a minimum charge of £2.00. 

    Returned Goods: Faulty

    If merchandise is returned because of some defect or due to error on our part, full credit/refund will be given.  Customers must contact us before returning goods so that making methods and user errors can be ruled out.
