Welcome to 4-Max


Coronavirus (COVID-19)

4-Max are pleased to announce that the Coronavirus has had very little effect on us so far, the worst being a few shipments have been delayed by a few weeks as airlines are canceling flights which means our goods now have to wait in a queue.

It seams that due to self isolation and working from home, a lot of our customers are taking this time to build and therefore we are extremely busy at the moment and are unable to answer the phone as much as we would like to (09:00 - Midday) as we are trying to answer emails and get out all the orders received via the website. We are running behind in answering emails, please be patient.

We are sending out orders as fast as we can via the post office and Parcel Force.
Some customers are reporting delays in shipments sent via the post and Parcel Force. These are troubling times so please be patient. We are all doing are best to service our customers.
