About Us

Welcome to Red Oak Direct Ltd, the UK work wear & clothing specialists!

Established in 2002, Red Oak Direct Ltd are major suppliers of high visibility clothing, work wear, leisure wear, waterproof and foul weather clothing, footwear, gloves, and all types of personal protective equipment (PPE) to industry, commerce, schools, colleges, universities, government bodies, charities, clubs, and of course the public too!

Through traditional sales channels, including sales reps throughout the U.K. and our existing web store which opened in 2003, we currently stock and supply over 10,000 different products, and provide full in-house design facilities to print or embroider our garments to meet our customers’ requirements. We can produce everything from the simplest of single colour text, up to truly amazing photographic quality full colour logos for the most demanding applications.

We pride ourselves on our ethical principles, and always strive to help our customers to meet their requirements and deadlines, including an expedited turnaround service if required. If you have an urgent deadline to meet please call us first - we will always go further than our competitors to help out customers in trouble! 

We also have a U.K. based bespoke manufacturing service available for truly individual garments to match your exacting requirements, and if cost is more constrained, we are also able to customise many of our existing garments to help meet both your requirements and your budget!

We are proud to supply to some of the most prestigious companies and organisations in the world, and our products can be seen everywhere from major music tours and festivals, to television and film productions, sporting events, as well as marches and rallies. Our high visibility children's garments keep thousands of little people safe with school walking buses, and when they get older, we supply many stag and hen parties too!

We are always striving to innovate, and love to hear any suggestions you may have for new products or ideas - please do drop us a line and we will always try to help.

Making A Purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our online catalogue, and click on the 'Add to Basket' button beside your chosen items to put them into the shopping basket. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to process your order.

For payment we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Visa Debit, Visa Electron and Solo cards. Please note that we are unfortunately unable to accept Maestro payments on line, however we can accept them offline by fax, post or by calling our customer sales line on (08452) 510510. Currently we only accept orders within the United Kingdom, Ireland and the rest of mainland Europe. Please note - carriage costs will be calculated separately for non UK orders, please call us when placing your order and we can give you an immediate cost for carriage to your address. Unfortunately, we do not ship to North America or Canada at this time.

For your convenience and compliance with business accounting requirements, all orders are shipped with a full VAT invoice.

We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship, unless the items are customised or printed work wear in which case we will charge immediately before the printing process commences. Back ordered items are not charged until they are shipped. You may send your credit card information via phone, fax, snail mail or via our web site's secure checkout. Please do *NOT* send credit card details by email, as email is insecure and liable to be read by third parties in transit.

We endeavour to keep our prices correct and up to date. However they may be subject to change or correction without notice. In the event of a price increase you will have the opportunity to change or cancel your order without penalty.

For security reasons we reserve the right to decline any order; in such cases any payments made will be returned immediately to the card holder.

Sizes and product images, where given, should be regarded as an approximate guide.

Shipping And Handling

Our shipping charges to the UK mainland are a flat rate £4.95 (Ex. VAT) for orders under £75 (Ex. VAT). Orders over £75 (Ex. VAT) are delivered free of charge. For UK offshore deliveries (Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Scottish isles, Isles of Scilly etc.) please call or email us as delivery surcharges will apply. We do not normally part-ship orders with out of stock items, however if this is necessary please email us using the link above and we will try to help, although part-shipping will possibly incur additional shipping charges. We do also ship to Ireland, mainland Europe, and some other destinations worldwide. Please note, we are unable to ship to North America or Canada at this time. Surcharges for shipping will apply to non UK destinations, and we will contact you for additional payment to cover shipping, which will be quoted for your approval prior to dispatch of goods.

Delivery Schedule 

You will normally receive your order in 1-3 business days, assuming all products are in stock at the time of ordering. Printed items will naturally take longer, although as with all orders we endeavour to dispatch them as rapidly as physically possible. If you have a specific deadline to meet, please phone or email us and we will try our best to help. The couriers we normally use are APC, UPS, and for smaller orders or certain destinations, Royal Mail or Parcelforce. All orders must be signed for, so please ensure that someone is available to receive the delivery. Special delivery instructions can be entered during the checkout process and we will do our best to comply with them within the limits of our courier's rules.

Back Orders

If your item is not in stock, we will immediately back order for you. We aim to keep good stock levels of all website products, and extremely large stocks of the most popular items. We have arrangements for rapid re-stocking should any item be out of stock. Re-stocking should normally occur within a week, unless delayed by manufacturer shortages etc.

Tax Charges

As we currently only accept orders from within the UK, VAT at the current rate of 20% is added.

All on-line credit card processing is performed through our payment service providers, and all details are stored using the highest level PCI DSS compliant encryption and data protection systems. Offline card payments also use strict PCI DSS compliant procedures with all card data securely destroyed after processing.
