  1. The basis of the sale of the Goods
    • These are the Terms on which all Goods are sold to the Customer.
    • If any of these Terms conflict with any terms of the Order, the Terms will take priority. The Seller accepts responsibility for statements and representations made by its duly authorised agents. It is the Customer’s responsibility to read these Terms and the Order and to ensure that the Order is complete and accurate (even if it has been written by the Seller).
    • The Seller will accept an Order from the Customer by:
  2. Telephone
  3. E-mail
  4. Post

Once the Order is placed, it is legally binding upon the Customer.  Any changes by the Customer may only be made with the agreement of the Seller.

  • Submission of the Order does not mean that the Seller has accepted it. If the Seller is unable to supply the Goods, the Seller will inform the Customer of this and will not process the Order.
  • These Terms will become binding on the Customer and the Seller when the Seller contacts the Customer to confirm that it is able to provide the Goods, at which point an agreement on the Terms will come into existence between the Customer and the Seller.
  1. Delivery of Goods
    • Timescales for delivery and delivery charges will vary depending on the availability of the Goods and the Customer’s address. Whilst the Seller will use all reasonable endeavours to meet any delivery dates, all delivery dates are estimates and approximate only.  The Seller cannot guarantee delivery dates and times and time shall not be the essence for delivery of the Goods.  It is the responsibility of the Customer to ensure that the Goods arrive prior to important dates.
    • Delivery of an Order will be completed when the Seller delivers the Goods to the address on the Order or when the Customer collects them, at agreed times. The Goods will become the responsibility of the Customer from the completion of delivery or Customer collection.
    • The Seller may employ a reputable carrier to deliver the Goods. If the Customer is asked for a signature upon delivery, it is the responsibility of the Customer to examine Goods before signing.
    • Occasionally, delivery to the Customer may be affected by circumstances beyond the control of the Seller. See clause below (Circumstance beyond the control of the Seller) for the Seller’s responsibilities when this happens.
    • If the Seller is not able to deliver the whole of the Order at one time due to operational reasons or shortage of stock, the Seller may deliver the Order in instalments and will attempt to contact the Customer to notify them of this in advance. In these circumstances and when Goods are sold on any periodic, regular or recurring basis, each instalment or delivery shall constitute a separate contract governed by these Terms.  If the Seller is late delivering an instalment or one instalment is faulty, it will not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment.
    • The Customer does not own the Goods until the Seller has received payment in full.
    • If Goods are to be delivered outside the United Kingdom, the Customer will be responsible for:
      • ensuring that the address is in a country to which the Seller will carry out a delivery. The Customer must check with the Seller for a list of countries where delivery may take place: and
      • the payment of import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. The Seller has no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount.  The Customer must contact their local customs office before placing an Order; and
      • compliance with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Good are destined. The Seller will not be liable or responsible if the delivery is a breach of any local law or regulation.
  1. Price and payment
    • Unless the Seller states otherwise in writing, the price of the Goods shall be the quoted price or, where no price has been quoted (or a quoted price is no longer valid) the Seller’s price list in force at the times of the Order.
    • Prices may change at any time, but price changes will not affect Orders that have been accepted by the Seller under these Terms.
    • These prices are subject to VAT at the relevant rate as shown on the price list. Where applicable, the prices for the Goods exclude delivery costs, details of which are available from the Seller and which will be added to the total amount due.
    • Payment for Goods and any delivery charges may be made by all major credit or debit cards, cash, bankers draft, bank transfer or cheque. Payment made by credit card may be subject to a handling fee, details of which are available from the Seller.
    • Payment must occur at the time that the Goods are ordered, as set out in these Terms.
    • The Customer shall pay all amounts due under the Terms in full.
  1. Special order goods
    • It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that the Order for Special Order Goods is based upon accurate information and the correct choice of Special Order Goods. Unfortunately, the Seller cannot accept the return of Special Order Goods, if the reason for the return is because the Customer has provided incorrect information or has made the wrong choice. .
  1. Guarantees
    • Where Goods provided by the Seller come with a manufacturer’s guarantee, the details are set out in the manufacturer’s guarantee provided with the Goods.
    • Any guarantee in this clause is in addition to the Customer’s statutory rights in relation to Goods that are faulty or not as described.
  1. The Seller’s liability
    • Nothing in the Terms shall exclude or limit Seller’s liability for death or personal injury resulting from the Seller’s negligence or for any breach of the statutory implied undertakings as to title to the Goods or for fraud or any other liability which may not be limited or excluded by law.

      • if the Customer no longer wants to buy the Goods, it can cancel the Order under the clause below (Customer’s cancellation rights).
    • If the circumstances beyond the Seller’s control continue for more than 4 weeks, the Seller may cancel the Order and refund money paid by the Customer in advance.
