Are the items listed on your site in stock ? Do you ship worldwide ?
All of the items listed on the site are in stock, on the shelves of the Urban Hunter warehouse for shipment worldwide. We sometimes have a rush on an item and we sell out before an update to the web site. This doesn't happen often, as we update every few hours. Our stock levels do change by the hour. As with any company when a stock level is low on a style, the last item is sometimes not there on the shelf. If you want to double check an item is in stock before you place an order please contact us.

Will you price match?
We cannot guarantee to do this every time, it's at our discretion, but we will do our best to help, so feel free to contact us. The item needs to be exactly the same in terms of model, size and colour, in stock in the UK with an established retailer for immediate shipment. We do not price match against auction sites such as ebay. We consider price matching for the item only. We can only consider price matching before you buy an item, not afterwards.
I purchased an item from you and the item is now at a lower price on your site.
We understand this can be frustrating, but unfortunately this is the nature of special offers, currency fluctuations and changes in prices from our suppliers.

This is done when you confirm and place the order. if your payment to us is in the form of an e-cheque we need to wait for cleared funds before we can send out your order.
