  • Who are

    This website is owned and operated by Universal Lighting Services Ltd, established in 1970 and based at Birkenhead Wirral. Universal Lighting is a family business that has supplied commercial and decorative lighting to the trade, industry and the public through it’s showroom, offices and warehouse on the Wirral Peninsula for the past 40 years.

  • Do you have everything on show in your showroom?

    We have a large and varied display of lighting, lamps and accessories at our showroom in Priory St Birkenhead and also hold some stock in our warehouse. We deal with every importer in the UK and many in Europe so it is impossible to stock and display every item we can supply. It is inevitable that we will need to order many products for our customers.

    We can normally deliver any item to your door within 7 days. At Universal Lighting we always contact the customer within one working day to acknowledge the order. If there is any unexpected delay in processing your order, you will be contacted further to inform you of the reasons and the expected delivery date.
