Terms and Conditions
1. These Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions and our Disclaimer apply to all transactions on this site. Please read them carefully. They do not affect your statutory rights. We may change these terms and conditions at any time. Any changes will take effect on the date they are posted onto the site (see date posted at bottom of this page). We reserve the right to change the specifications of our products at any time without notice. Please read the terms and conditions each time you place an order, to ensure that you are familiar with the most current ones.
2. Our Contract
The display of items for sale on this website are simply an invitation to treat. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order up until you finally submit your order at the end of the checkout process. After submitting an order to us we will give you an Order Reference Number and details of the products you have ordered. We will send these details to you in an e-mail (our first e-mail). Please note that this e-mail is an acknowledgement, not acceptance of your order. Acceptance of your order and the creation of a legally binding contract between us will only occur when we send you a second e-mail, which will contain details of how we will deliver your products to you. We will tell you if your payment details cannot be authorised for any reason and may invite you to pay by another method. We will then send you a third e-mail confirming the dispatch of your order.
3. Prices and Payment
All prices and charges on this site are shown in UK pounds sterling and include VAT (for details see ‘Delivery’ below). The total cost of your order will be the price of the products you order including VAT at the current rate where appropriate. All these will be set out clearly in your Shopping Basket before you submit your order. Prices, offers and products are subject to availability and may change before (but not after) we accept your order. If an item becomes unavailable we may offer you an alternative. We try very hard to ensure that all information on this site is accurate. However, just occasionally, an error can occur. If we discover an error in the price or description of a product you have ordered, we will tell you and ask you whether you wish to continue with your order or cancel it.
Deliveries may need to be signed for by the contact person you have named on your order (except items sent by post which are small enough to be put through your letterbox). Please make sure you keep the receipt enclosed with your goods.
5. Delivery Charges
We offer FREE* UK delivery on orders placed through our website above a certain value as indicated during checkout. We also offer non refundable Expedited* (First Class Royal Mail) and Priority* (Royal Mail Special Delivery guaranteed to arrive by 1pm the next working day) options which you can select during the checkout procedure at extra cost. (* Applies to UK Mainland deliveries only). The shipping costs for international shipments outside the UK will be confirmed during the checkout procedure and are non refundable.
6. How we Deliver
All our products are delivered in the UK by the Royal Mail postal service. Deliveries outside the UK will be via the local postal service.
7. Delivery Times
UK delivery times are calculated in working days - i.e. Monday to Friday inclusive. If you order after 2.00pm, please calculate your delivery time as if your order had been placed the following working day. In the case of bank holidays and just before Christmas, please allow an extra two working days. Free Postage by 2nd Class Royal Mail usually arrives within 3-10 working days of placing your order. Expedited Postage by 1st Class Royal Mail usually arrives within 2-5 working days of placing your order, the next working day in most cases. Please note, 1st or 2nd Class Royal Mail services are not guaranteed regarding timescales. Please allow for delays over public holiday periods. Deliveries may need to be signed for. We will make every effort to dispatch your order on any preferred dates you specify. We will contact you beforehand to confirm the dispatch date. This will usually be in our third e-mail to you.
International orders will be dispatched via International Royal Mail Signed For or Royal Mail Airsure. The extra cost of this service (which is confirmed during the checkout process) cannot be refunded.
IMPORTANT: We do everything we can to meet the delivery times specified in this section. However, occasionally delivery times may be affected by factors beyond our control and therefore they cannot be guaranteed. We will inform you if we become aware of an unexpected delay.
8. Missing, Damaged or Incorrect Orders
We try very hard to ensure that you receive your order in pristine condition. In the unlikely event that an order arrives damaged, faulty or incorrectly, please advise us via email or telephone within 72 hours of receipt.
If your order has not been delivered, please allow up to 20 days after posting for items sent within the UK and the European Union, and 25 days after posting for items sent outside the EU, before you consider it lost. This is because your item could be in the process of being returned to us if it could not be delivered for some reason or may have been held in customs if outside the EU.
All non delveries must be reported within 30 days, we cannot accept any liability for orders that do not arrive after that.
