We understand that you might like to see copies before making a
large order and we are regularly asked if we can issue free sample/preview
copies of our publications - and especially our Development Wheels™.
We used to be able to do this, but as the requests became more frequent
(sometimes over 100 a month!) and with
increasing production costs and higher postage costs, we had to review this
practice, as it was becoming a major overhead for us and we still wanted to keep our
prices as low as possible.
So, following our review, we have now facilitated the ‘online purchase’ of
sample copies of our Development Wheels™
and other publications through this
website. This means that you can purchase individual samples
of our 'off-the-shelf' stock, so that you can then see them before you commit to
either a larger order or prior to commissioning your very own
Further details about commissioning 'customised'
copies are available on this website, if you click here.
Option 1 below about Online purchase
of your samples, or use the links at the top of this web-page to search the site
for more information about our publications/Development Wheels prior to placing
an order. Alternatively you can purchase samples by issuing us with a
local authority purchase order (see
Option 2 below).
Refunds on samples and
placing an order
viewing your samples, you wish to make a purchase or order ‘customised’
we have a sliding scale of refunds and/or discounts based on what samples you
have bought and what you would then like to order from us.
Images of our publications
We also get requests
about supplying images of our
publications/Development Wheels™ in order to view actual content, but I'm afraid
that, due to copyright © reasons and the nature of the
production of our wheels with the authors who write them, we cannot send out
images of the full content of our publications. It is
the same copyright rules as any other books/publications that you might purchase
from bookshops or online at such places as Amazon and is part of any publishing
agreement for publications/books and of course our
Development Wheels™. It's another
reason why we have facilitated online purchasing of sample stock items.
Thank you for
your understanding in this instance. We hope that the cost of samples does not
put off your interest in our wheels and we look forward to being of
further service to you soon.
1. Online purchase.
Probably the quickest way to
order your publications is online using your credit/debit card. Once you have
ordered, we will get notification that your payment has cleared and we can
despatch your order. The online purchase area also shows the prices you pay for
each publication and updates your order until you 'checkout' to finalise your
purchases. Please note that we can send an invoice with your order, so that you
have the paperwork to 'claim back' the cost of your publications.

local authority or public sector purchase order.

publications or a larger quantity of some publications and you operate a

order form' with your requirements by fax or email and we will finalise a price for
you and let you have the details.
