PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SALE CAREFULLY BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER AND RETAIN A COPY OF THESE TERMS AND YOUR ORDER FOR FUTURE REFERENCE

2 Format of the contract

These terms of sale apply to all goods supplied by us via this website. The website is governed by the following terms and conditions; they do not affect your statutory rights.

Any order placed by you for goods advertised on our website is an offer by you to purchase the goods selected in your order.

No contract exists between you and us for the sale of any goods until we have received your order and accepted it (which we may do at our discretion).

We will send you an order acknowledgement shortly after you place your order, notifying you that we have received your order. This acknowledgement is not notification that we have accepted your order.

The contract is subject to your right of cancellation (see condition 5).

We have the right to terminate the contract if the price of the contract is not received from you in cleared funds.

We may change these terms of sale without notice to you in relation to future sales.

3 Description and price of the goods

We provide you with product information via our website.

We have taken care to describe and show items as accurately as possible. Despite this, slight variations in items may occur.

Dimensions and other specifications given on this site are mostly as provided by the manufacturer and may be approximate (sometimes manufacturer-supplied information is contradictory).

Specifications may change without notice. Please confirm any specific details before ordering.

If there is anything which you do not understand, or if you wish to obtain further information, please contact us.

Every effort is made to ensure that prices shown on this website are accurate at the time of placing your order. If, by mistake, we have under priced an item we will contact you and offer you the following three options:

a) Placing a new order at the correct price for those goods;

b) Cancelling the whole of your order; or

c) Cancelling your order for the mis-priced goods and reconfirm your order for the correctly priced goods.

If you do not choose one of the available options within 14 days, your order will be cancelled or, the under priced item will be removed from your order. If any payment has been made by you, you will be credited back to your original payment method.

If within 14 days of accepting your order we discover that all of the goods are unavailable, we will contact you and advise that we may cancel your order and refund or re-credit you within 14 working days. The refund will be credited back to your original payment method.

If within 14 days of accepting your order we discover that some but not all of the goods are unavailable, we will contact you and offer you the option of cancelling the whole order or amending your order to a substitute alternative. If you do not choose a substitute alternative within 14 days, the unavailable item will be removed from your order and we will deliver the available goods. If any payment has been made by you, you will be credited back to your original payment method.

The price of an item may or may not include the delivery charge, which will depend on the delivery method you choose.

4 Payment

Payment can be made by any of the options advertised on our website. Payment shall be due before delivery. If payment fails your order will be cancelled.

There will be no delivery until clear funds have been received.

5 Delivery

If you refuse the delivery of your order for reasons under the Consumer Contracts Regulations or you fail to take delivery because you have cancelled your contract under the Consumer Contracts Regulations, we will refund or re-credit you within 30 days for any sum that has been paid by you for the goods.

By exercising your right to cancel you are required to return the goods to us. If you fail to return the goods to us, we reserve the right to deduct any costs incurred by retrieving the goods from you.

We make every effort to deliver the goods as soon as possible after your order has been accepted. However, we will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you through reasonable or unavoidable delay in delivery. In this event, we will inform you of any delay as soon as possible.

Upon receipt of your order you will be asked to sign for the goods received.

If the package does not appear to be in good condition then please refuse the delivery.

If you are unable to check the contents of your delivery then please sign for the parcel as “UNCHECKED”. Failure to do so may affect any warranty claims that you make thereafter.
