TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE AND USE OF SITE 

1. Returns and Refunds (Your right to cancel)

Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations the customer is given the right to return unwanted goods. This "cooling-off" period gives you 14 working days in which to cancel your order without giving a reason. The period starts the day after the day that goods are received. During this time, you are only required to cancel the order and are not obliged to return the goods within the 14 working days.
Consumer Contracts Regulations DO NOT APPLY to the supply of goods that are made to the customer's specification or are personalised.
Please note: Consumer Contract Regulations DO NOT apply to Business to Business contracts. Business Customers are defined as Sole Traders, Partnerships, Limited Companies etc. purchasing goods from us by Internet, Mail Order, and over the Phone or by Proforma Invoice for use at their business. SEE BELOW for Business to Business terms & conditions.


If you wish to cancel an order within the 14 day cooling-off period, you may do so providing the goods are in a re-saleable condition. This means unused and complete with original packing. To exercise this right please contact us by any of the methods displayed on this website. We will need confirmation in writing, as well as your name, address and invoice number.

Please ensure when returning goods that you use a reputable delivery service that can provide evidence that they have delivered the goods back to us. We can arrange a reasonably priced courier collection service for larger items, please contact us for details. Please ensure that items for return are packed with sufficient care to ensure damage does not occur in transit. We will not accept responsibility for damage to returned items caused by insufficient packaging. In most cases, sufficient packaging means inside a strong cardboard box with adequate internal cushioning around the product.

When exercising the right to cancel, goods are to be returned at the customer's cost. However, refunds are not dependent on the goods being returned. If goods are not returned to us after a customer has exercised the right to cancel, we require that they are made available for collection. The direct cost of collection will be deducted from the refund. We will refund the full amount of the goods (excluding delivery/collection costs) within 14 days of your goods being returned. In the event that the ‘The Company’ is to refund full or partial payments, refunds will be made by the same means in which the original order was placed. Customers who paid by credit or debit card will be refunded directly to their credit or debit cards. Customers who paid by cheque will be refunded by cheque. All refunds will be made within 14 days of the goods being returned.

2. None EU Destinations

If you are ordering from outside the EU, Consumer Contracts Regulations do not apply and you will not be entitled to a full refund if you wish to cancel. If you wish to cancel an order from outside the EU, please contact us.  The buyer is responsible for all customs and excise charges for the goods entering your country, if payment of these charges is refused, ‘The Company’ is charged this amount and we will recover the monies from the buyer.

3. Product Quality / Faulty Goods and Warranty Issues

This section is in addition to individual manufacturer’s warranties and details the process by which some products can be returned to "The Company" for repair/ replacement or a refund.

Please notify us within 30 days of the date of purchase if you believe you have received goods which are not of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose and as described. 
Faults occurring after the 30 day period are still covered by the Consumer Rights Act (2015) and by the individual manufacturer's warranties that come with our products.
Please call in advance before returning faulty items as it may be that we can rectify problems without the item being returned. If this is not possible, we will pay for faulty goods to be returned to our premises (UK only) and forwarded to you after replacement/repair, for a period of up to 30 days after you receive them. Outside the United Kingdom, shipping must be paid by the warranty holder. If goods returned during this period are found to be without faults, or if a fault is caused by damage or misuse, you will be responsible for paying our collection and subsequent delivery costs before they can be returned to you. If the fault is the result of damage or misuse, you will also be responsible for the cost of any repair or replacement that you request. Misuse includes failing to take reasonable care of the product.
 
After the 30 days and up to 6 months from purchase ‘The Company’ will decide whether to repair or replace any goods which are of unsatisfactory quality, unfit for purpose or not as described. If the attempt at a repair or replacement is unsuccessful, or the first replacement also turns out to be defective you can then reject the goods for a full refund or a price reduction if you wish to keep the product

After 6 months has elapsed from receipt of an order, the customer is responsible for the cost of returning faulty goods. If a fault is found to have occurred due to accidental damage, misuse or expected wear and tear you will be informed of the cost of repair/replacement and return delivery. When payment is received, the goods will be returned to you. If the product has a manufacturing defect that is covered by guarantee we will assist in organising warranty support. Please note that with many products "The Company" does not deal directly with warranties/repairs and will pass your details to, or ask you to contact the manufacturer directly. Repairs and replacements will be subject to that company's Terms and Conditions in such cases.

‘The Company’ cannot be held responsible for the manufacturer’s warranties of a product if the manufacturer of that product ceases trading, goes into liquidation or is declared bankrupt.
