What is Sage Pay and 3D Secure?
We have recently introduced Sage Pay as an additional safeguard to protect both our customers and ourselves against credit card fraud.
What are Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode (3D Secure)?
Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode (3D Secure) are the latest fraud prevention initiatives launched by Visa and MasterCard. Full details can be found from your card issuer.
3D Secure works in a similar way to Chip and Pin, by asking you to enter a unique password in order to complete your online order.
How does Sage Pay work?
1. You select the goods they wish to purchase from our website and enter your order and delivery details.
2. Your credit card details are captured securely by Sage Pay.
3. You will be prompted to enter your Verified by Visa or MasterCard Secure Code (3D Secure) password on your card issuer's page (optional).
4. Our bank sends the credit card details to your card issuer who authorises or declines the transaction.
5. Our bank then sends the transaction results back to Sage Pay.
6. Sage Pay sends the authorisation results to us and to you to confirm the results of the transaction.
How does Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode work?
You will be given the option to register your cards and/or verify your transaction, when purchasing from us. Once the you have entered your card details on Sage Pays hosted payment page you will be prompted (on the confirmation page) to register your card for 3D Secure (if you have yet to do so) or proceed with the transaction and enter the pin number you have set up for online transactions.

For international transactions, we accept only paypal and bacs payments


Please note no goods will be dispatched until your payment has been cleared.

Special requests

Delivery address

In most cases, for purposes of security, we will only deliver your order to the address of the card holder. If you wish to have your order sent to another address, you must contact us to arrange an alternative solution. Please note: Our reason for this condition is purely to protect both yourself and The Tool Vault against the increasing problem of credit card fraud.


If you have any queries relating to the delivery of your order you can contact us during office hours by e-mail us at


Delivery problems

If you are not at home when our carrier's vehicle arrives, the driver will leave a card to notify you that they have called. Please note that in some cases (i.e pallet consignments or deliveries over 25kg you may be liable for any re-delivery costs). 


Please note that if there is no-one available to sign for your delivery and you requested to have it left in your back garden, on the door mat or in an outbuilding etc., this is done at your own risk. Our carrier will post a card through your door to inform you that it has been left in the specified place. The Tool Vault does not accept responsibility for loss or theft of items left in an unsecure place at your request.

Whilst every effort shall be made to keep any delivery date, time of delivery shall not be of the essence. The company shall not be liable for any consequential loss incurred by the buyer or any other person or company arising directly or indirectly out of any failure to meet any estimated delivery date.


If delivery cannot be made to your address for reasons under our Companys control, our team will inform you as soon as possible to make alternative arrangements.


The Tool Vault cannot accept liability for goods lost in transit, unless we are notified within 5 days from the expected delivery date. This will be the date advised on the customers automated dispatch note which is emailed to the customer once the items have left our warehouse.


Should you require the goods to be redirected to another address after the goods have been dispatched you may be required to pay an additional postage charge.


Upon receipt of you order you will be asked to sign for the goods received in good condition. If the package does not appear to be in good condition then please refuse the delivery. If you are unable to check the contents of your delivery at the point of delivery then please sign for the parcel as UNCHECKED. Failure to do so may affect any warranty claims that you make thereafter.
Any refused deliveries will be returned to The Tool Vault. Upon receipt of the goods, a refund will be issued minus 10% of the value of the order to cover administration costs.
