    Airflo Bags

    Airflo vacuum cleaner bags may at first seem to be more expensive than the cheap competition and, that's true, they are more expensive. But with very good reason.

    Airflo hoover bags, unlike many these days, are not made in poor quality facilities in the Far East, specifically, in China. They are made to extremely high standards in Europe, often exceeding the standard of many vacuum cleaner manufacturer's own bags so they don't fail, fall apart if you handle them the wrong way and actually do what they're supposed to do, trap dirt. This will mean that your hoover is working the way it was intended to be without a reduction in performance often found using cheap hoover bags.

    Airflo do manufacture for many actual vacuum cleaner manufacturers because their quality is so high. So high in fact that you will find many Airflo vacuum cleaner bags used in commercial applications such as hospitals, schools and the like.

    We like them because we don't get the same hassle we do with cheap hoover bags quite frankly. They just work and our customers are happy with this level of quality, it's what people expect of us

    We also like the fact that Airflo vacuum cleaner bags are manfactured with consideration for the environment. Wherever possible, Airflo use biodegradable materials made from renewable sources. No optical brighteners or chemical bleaching agents are used in the manufacturing process, making them a far more environmentally friendly choice.

    This new range of microfilter hoover bags that are being introduced is superb. The quality is great and they retain more duct in the vac, which is the whole point of the hoover bag really, too keep the dust in the hoover and not spew it back out as many cheap hoover bags do.

    What we find with these new hoover bags is that filters last longer, more dirt is retained so the hoover cleans better (often better than originally), that they hold more dirt in terms of volume and they're stronger as well. There's really no downside other than the slightly higher price.

    So yes, Airflo cleaner bags are a little more expensive, but well worth the little extra we feel as you gain a lot for not a lot of money.

    We are going to get any part/s your order to you as fast as we possibly can.

    We use a variety of means to do that but we also give you, the customer, the choice of how fast you want the transit time to be as well as the features and convenience levels that suit you on delivery so, there are options. There is a lot of information here on how we do this and an explanation of the choice you have as well as the impact of each in speed and cost as we are very open and transparent.

    Orders placed outwith our normal business hours will not be shipped until the next working day and subject to stock availability.

    Please be aware that we show availability and that we do not display live stock levels online.

    What we do is give an average here based on where parts are and typically take to ship as well as an average of transit times based on how people order parts so these can vary depending largely on the shipping method that we allow you to select depending on your own individual needs.

    The estimated normal time that an item will take to reach you (excluding weekends and public holidays) is indicated on every listing at the top of the listing in orange with the truck next to it, an explanation of these is as follows:

    1 to 6 Days: Normally a UK stock item and usually dispatched the same or next working day but some items may take a little longer depending on where the stock is.

    1 to ** Days: Usually a UK/EU stocked item but may have a longer lead time, for clarification of the time please contact us before ordering and we will advise further if required.

    * to ** Days: Variable lead times that are based on normal order supply times, often parts that do not have a “1 to“ at the start will ordinarily be factory or custom order items and we would ask that you please allow the time indicated for your order to arrive with you. Please note that these items are specially ordered upon request that is not normally stocked therefore cannot be ordinarily returned, this does not affect your statutory rights.

    Again, please note that your chosen delivery method may affect the delivery time to both shorten and lengthen that delivery time and that these estimates apply to UK mainland orders only. The faster delivery method that you choose, the lower on that estimated delivery time you will likely receive the items ordered.

    If you need clarification or a more accurate lead time please contact us for assistance on that and we will do our utmost to provide that as our estimated lead times are based on normal stock availability, average lead times, average shipping times and this can vary depending on shipping methods etc.

    Our standard delivery charges are quoted online when you place an order on the checkout page and are determined by weight, size and method so can alter based on those parameters.

    Large (oversized/overweight) items (panels, dishracks, cooktops, tubs, drums, etc.) may incur additional shipping fees, especially when off the mainland UK.

    Our estimated delivery times do not apply to international or offshore orders, only to UK mainland addresses and that delivery times to more rural areas may vary depending on the service used.

    Delivery times can vary at times of very high volumes, such as Christmas period and also due to bad weather etc and at such times deliveries, regardless of service used, may not happen as normal.

    Please do understand that manufacturers can change specifications, pricing and delivery times without notice and we do try to take account of this as best we can but we cannot absolutely guarantee these things when outside of our control.

      Order Transit Times

    If the item you have ordered is in stock and the order is placed before 3.00pm Monday to Friday then we will endeavour to dispatch the order on the same day. Subsequent delivery times are usually between 1-3 working days dependant on the service you have chosen, the time your order is placed and stock availability.

    If an item is required for a guaranteed next day delivery please contact us in advance to check that this is possible

    Please note that the times given can be subject to availability, however, more than 98% of all orders are delivered on or faster than the estimated times.

    Economy courier Service

    Delivery by HermesOrders placed before 3pm on working days will normally dispatch within 24 hours depending on stock availability.
