We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods you order before your order can be accepted. Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us. Acceptance shall occur on either the debiting of your credit card or the clearance of your cheque.
The prices payable for goods ordered and their associated delivery charges are as set out in our website during the checkout process (delivery charges may vary depending on which Zone you reside, UK Domestic is the default Zone). All prices are shown in pound sterling (£) and are inclusive of UK VAT at the current rate unless clearly stated otherwise. It is our policy to offer goods at the most reasonable price possible, however, if, due to circumstances beyond our control, we deem it necessary to alter any advertised price, we reserve the right to do so without prior notice.
Returns & Cancellations
Individual Consumers may choose to cancel their order and return the goods to us for a full refund within 14 calendar days from receipt of their order under the "Consumer Contracts Regulations" act. Consumers must send us a cancellation request in writing (letter, fax, e-mail or by using the Contact Us page of our website) quoting all original Customer / Order numbers. After you have inspected your order and chosen to return it, item/s must be returned to us in their original packaging (where applicable) and in a "re-saleable" condition meaning the item/s must not have been used or damaged while trying to fit or install in the case of spare parts. The consumer is responsible for all return postage charges or at least be able to make the item/s available to us to collect. If you require us to organise collection you will be responsible for all collection charges incurred. Refunds will only be issued once the goods have been received and checked. Refunds will be issued within 14 days of receipt of returned items.
If you believe that your chosen item/s are faulty, defective, sent by us in error or damaged in transit, please notify us in writing (letter, fax, e-mail or by using the Contact Us page of our website) within 14 days of receipt and send them back to us. We will refund your return postage costs once the item has been checked and assessed as being faulty or we can endeavour to arrange collection of larger / heavier items. Once we have established that the item/s is faulty, you will have the option of replacement / refund or repair if the fault can be fixed. If no faults can be found, the item/s will be returned to you.
Exemptions to the Consumer Contract Regulations:
While we endeavour to hold sufficient stock to meet all orders, however if we have insufficient stock to deliver the goods ordered by you we will not be obliged to offer compensation for disappointment suffered. We will contact you to inform you of an Estimated Time Of Arrival and give you the option to cancel your order if the delay is not acceptable.
We will deliver the goods ordered by you as soon as reasonably practicable to the UK address you give us for delivery at the time you make your order. A valid signature is required on delivery. You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered on delivery of them to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction. Due to the wide variety of products we sell, some of the larger / heavier items may need to be unloaded by the customer (ie. by forklift truck or similar). For these items, we can also request a "tail-lift delivery" which may incur a delay of 1-2 days in delivery.
· a. You may return any of the goods delivered to you (including those which are not what you ordered, are damaged or defective, or where the delivery is of an incorrect quantity) upon notifying us of your intention to return such goods and the problem with them (if any) and then returning them within 30 days of the date of their delivery to you to our contact address at your own cost and risk. We shall refund you the price you paid for any goods returned PROVIDED THAT such goods are returned by you and received by us in the condition they were in when delivered to you.
· b. If you do not receive goods ordered by you within 30 days of the date on which you ordered them, we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us in writing at our contact address of the problem within 40 days of the date on which you ordered the goods.
· c. If you notify a problem to us under this condition, our only obligation will be (at our option): to make good any shortage or non-delivery; to replace or repair any goods that are damaged or defective; or to refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question in whatever way we choose.
· d. If the goods in question are not received by us in the condition they were in when delivered to you we shall refund you the price paid for the goods less a handling charge of 20% of the price paid.
· e. We will not be liable to you for any indirect or consequential loss or damage arising out of any problem you notify to us under this condition and we shall have no liability to pay any money to you by way of compensation other than to refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question under paragraph c or d above.
· f. All terms, conditions, warranties and representations expressed or implied by statute, applicable local law or otherwise in relation to the goods you order are excluded. Nothing in this condition is, however, intended to limit any rights you might have as a consumer under applicable local law that may not be excluded, nor in any way to exclude or limit our liability to you for any personal injury resulting from our negligence.
We shall have no liability to you for any failure to deliver goods you have ordered or any delay in doing so or for any damage or defect to goods delivered that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control (including, without limitation, strikes, lockouts and other industrial disputes).
If any part of these conditions is invalid, illegal or unenforceable (including any provision in which we exclude our liability to you) the validity, legality or enforceability of any other part of these conditions will not be affected.
The contract between us shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with English law, and the English courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to resolve any disputes between us.
These terms and conditions, together with our current website prices, delivery details and contact details, set out the whole of our agreement relating to the supply of the goods to you by us. These terms and conditions cannot be varied except in writing, signed by one of our Partners. In particular nothing said by any of our staff should be understood as a variation of these terms and conditions or as an authorised representation about the nature or quality of any goods offered for sale by us. We shall have no liability for any such representation being untrue or misleading.
