Acceptance of your order
We will not accept your order until such time that you are emailed to say that the products you have ordered have been dispatched or, in respect of any services, begun. Once you receive such an email, we will be contracted to you and your contract will be concluded upon delivery of the products or completion of the services. Any products or services on the same order that we have not yet confirmed via email will not form part of that contract and will form part of a separate
contract when the remaining products or services have been dispatched or begun. Placing an order does not constitute a contract with us until we confirm the products as despatched or services begun.
We reserve the right not to accept your order for any reason whatsoever including, but not limited
to, payment problems, product availability and product price or description
We cannot retrospectively apply a promotional code to your order. If you place an order without correctly applying the promotional code, we will be unable to reimburse you the discount once the order has been placed. If you are having any difficulties in applying a promotional code or believe the code to be faulty, please contact our customer services team on 01229 877770
If, for any reason, there is a problem with collecting payment from your credit / debit card or other chosen payment method after we have confirmed receipt of your order, we will not be obliged to despatch your order. Additionally, on some occasions, we may be unable to process an order. This may be due to: the item being out of stock or no longer available, your payment being declined, our identification of a pricing error or product description error or an unspecified
technical error. If you are sure you are using a valid form of payment, please try again or use a different payment method.
We have a wide range of delivery options and timescales, and charges will vary dependent on the type of product or service ordered. Risk in the products (e.g. damage or loss to the products) will remain with us until we deliver the goods to the address specified in your order or collected in store when the risk will pass to you immediately. Delivery charges will only be refundable if you cancel your contract from the time it is placed and within seven working days after the day of receipt of your goods. Please see Cancellation for more information and exceptions.
What if my goods arrive damaged?
If by the very rare chance your goods are damaged during transit upon delivery, we ask that if there is visible damage upon collection to reject the parcel or sign for the parcel as damaged. For us to process a claim and send you out a replacement item we will then need to be provided with photographic evidence of the damaged product and may need to arrange for the courier the collect the parcel back from you or the courier may need to come back to inspect the parcel at your property. If no evidence can be provided as proof of damage and if the courier has no access to view the damaged parcel your claim will be rejected and no replacement will be sent.
You may cancel your order immediately after placing it by calling our customer services team on 01229 877770. If your products have already been despatched, you can cancel your contract from the time it is placed and within seven working days after the day of receipt of your goods for a full refund (including any delivery charges if applicable) by following our Refund policy. We are unable to provide a refund of the delivery charges where only part of your order is being
cancelled If you wish to return your order outside of the cancellation time period specified above, please refer to our Refund Policy. Where you have failed to take reasonable care of the goods, we reserve the right to refund you in full less any amounts due by way of compensation to either repair the goods or to cover any loss.
We want you to be happy with every purchase you make. Accordingly, you may inspect the items you buy as if you were in store. However, whilst you are deciding whether to keep your purchases, you do have a statutory duty to take reasonable care of our goods. Therefore, please do not damage the items whilst you inspect them. Where you have failed to take reasonable care of the goods, whether whilst in your possession or when returning them, we reserve the right to refund you in full less any amounts due by way of compensation to either repair the goods or to cover any loss. If you wish to return a product you have purchased from our website, making note of any Nonreturnable products, you may do so:
If you request a return or refund the full cost of postage and packaging will be deducted, as these costs are heavily subsidized and therefore will be deducted if a refund is issued. This is not applicable if the goods have been reported to us faulty or damaged If you wish to return faulty or damaged goods that were purchased via Pay pal for a full refund, then you must return your goods by post or courier. With the exception of faulty or damaged goods, if you return your purchase by post or courier after the 28-day period, we reserve the right to not offer you a refund in full. We will instead return your purchase to you and prior to sending it out, we will charge you the delivery fee that is applicable to the product purchased and the location to which your returns will be delivered.
