Welcome To The Lambretta Upgrades Web Site

* Covid-19 update *

The shop, workshop and webstore are now open with restrictions.

Strictly no entry into the shop without a mask! If you turn up without one, you will be asked to leave and place your order over the phone/online

Payment can now be made in the shop or before picking up either by paypal, bank transfer and we are now accepting card machine payments again.

We STILL want ourselves, friends, families and customers to be as protected as possible in these difficult times.

We are now taking on work and can quote if you ring or email.

Royal mail and couriered parts are still taking longer as many are stil not picking up/delivering to business addresses. All smaller parts will still be sent 1st class via Royal mail unless specified.

Please note: We try to send everything next day delivery but sometimes this is not possible especially if you order larger or heavier items that need to be posted by courier. Cut-off for next day is back to 3:00PM via Royal mail but it may take longer than normal due to posties being short-staffed. If you are not satisfied with this it may be best if you order elsewhere.

Stay safe people - Chiggy, Pete, Mike and Chris. X
