Trade Information

If you have a bricks and mortar shop we can supply you with all the items we have on our website. We are sorry but we cannot supply you if you are internet only and do not have a retail shop.

Hannants is a 4th generation family business, established in Lowestoft, Suffolk, England in 1890. Your guarantee of service. 

The wholesale model shop supplying side of our business started in the 1960's when we supplied Frog kits to many of the model shops in the East Anglian area of the country. It really took off in the late 1970's after we became the distributors for the Microscale range. Demand for the decals increased and our customers wanted kits as well. Our business grew from there. Later we started importing more decal ranges, kits and accessories from around the world and we became the main importing agent for many firms.

Initial order must be for over £500.00. Subsequent orders must be over £150.00. 

Any items on Backorder will automatically be cancelled if we have not received any order via the website in the previous 2 months. Goods on Backorder get reserved so they cannot be sold to any other customer so we cannot keep items on Backorder for customers who do not order regularly.
