Useful Information - Shelving Megastore
How do I know what shelving I will need?
First you will need to determine the length of shelving you require and in how many runs, all our shop shelving is designed to fit together in a continuous run so you will need an end of run leg to complete each run.
You will then have to decide on the height that you need, sizes available are 1400mm, 1600mm, 1800mm, 2100mm, 2400 mm. All wall shelving units require a base shelf, make sure you leave plenty of space for customers to move around, including space for pushchairs & wheelchairs. Finally determine the quantity and the sizes of the shelves that you need and the type of back you require, such as perforated back panels.
What is an End of Run Leg?
An end of run leg (sometimes called a finisher or finishing leg) is required to complete each separate run of shop shelving. Our shelving is designed to join together to make continuous runs and each unit is supplied with one upright and base leg.
For Example: 3 units/bays to stand separately would need 3 finishers/end of run legs, 5 units/bays joined in 1 run would need 1 end of run leg.
I can’t see exactly what I want, can you quote for my exact requirements?
The shelving bays shown are simply examples of what is possible, if you want different shelf configurations, more or less shelves, some peg back panels, please contact us and we can supply you with a custom quotation
I’m not sure what I need can I send you a plan of my shop and ask your advice?
Simply e-mail us a plan of your premises, remembering to include any special requirements such as access to electrical sockets, pipes etc. and the type of products you wish to display and we will advise you on the best shelving layout to suit your requirements.
We would work out your requirements based on the measurements you have given us, it is your responsibility to ensure accurate measurements are supplied, we cannot take responsibility if any goods ordered do not fit exactly.
Can I collect my order from you?
Yes you can, but certain products are delivered direct from the manufacturer and are not stocked in our warehouse, just give us a call and we can confirm if it is possible and we will have your goods packaged ready for you.
How do I pay for my order?
We accept all major debit and credit cards online or over the phone.

How will my goods be delivered?

Delivery is usually within 3 working days from dispatch
We can arrange for next day delivery if you need your goods quickly but this will incur additional delivery costs
All items must be checked on arrival, signing unchecked will not be accepted for any damages that are then found after receipt of delivery and therefore replacement parts cannot be sent out free of charge.

You must advise us beforehand if there are any entry restrictions to the delivery address as the goods will most likely be delivered on a large HGV lorry.
