Some important advice - please read!

Cactus work very hard to provide a high level of customer service and if you follow our simple advice we can ensure that your shopping at Cactus is pleasant and stress free.

· Please allow a reasonable time for ordering and delivery - although we keep plenty of stock in our warehouse many marine electronics manufacturers find it difficult to predict demand, so delivery times can vary, particular during the season. Cactus will always tell you if the product you are buying is about to change, so there is there is no need to leave ordering to the last minute.

· Buy PC software at least 2 weeks before you plan to use it. Loading and configuring marine software is generally not straightforward, often there are issues with unlock codes and drivers that can take a few days to resolve, plus you might need to order additional PC peripherals to make sure everything functions correctly.

· Because of the number of PC operating systems, navigational applications, and electronic chart formats available, Cactus is unable to provide telephone support for marine software. However, Cactus provide a full in-house commissioning and setup service, please ask the sales team for details.

· When calling please give us plenty of information about your boat and how you intend to use the equipment, even if you are just phoning up for a price. This provides a useful check to ensure you are purchasing the right product for you.

· If you are ordering accessories or electronic charts, please check compatibility with our sales team before ordering. Formats and specifications change all the time so it is worth double-checking even if you think you know what you need. This will avoid the trouble and expensive of returning items that were incorrectly ordered.

· If you have any comments or feedback on our service or the products please contact us directly and I will do my best to help.
