1. Acceptance – After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy the Goods.

The Contract will relate only to those Goods we have confirmed in the Order Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods which may have been part of your order until we confirm acceptance of your order in a separate Order Confirmation.

Postage & packing (P&P) charges vary according to the Goods purchased. P&P costs for Goods are clearly stated on our site. We can only deliver to UK addresses. We will deliver the Goods to the boundary of your delivery address and you should arrange for people to be available to take delivery of the Goods.

All dates given for delivery are estimates only and, as such, we will not be liable for any costs incurred as a result of late or early delivery. The Goods will be delivered to the delivery address you provide to us on the order form, unless otherwise agreed.
Ownership and risk in the Goods will pass on delivery.
If you fail to take delivery of the Goods on the delivery date, we will contact you by telephone to arrange a new delivery date. We reserve the right to charge you for the extra delivery. We will notify you, prior to arranging a new delivery date, if a delivery charge will be incurred.

7. (a) Cancellation, Returns & Damages – Business to Consumer (B2C)
We observe the terms of The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, which include cancellation rights, and also the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
If you are contracting as a Business to Consumer (B2C) customer, you may cancel a Contract at any time within 14 calendar days after the day of receipt of goods (Cooling Off Period). Provided the goods are returned in unopened, undamaged, clean and resaleable condition, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Goods in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 9 below).
To cancel a Contract within the Cooling-Off Period, you must call us on +44 7341 823751 to obtain a Goods Return Number and to arrange a suitable method of returning the Goods. You must also return the Goods to us at your own cost within 14 days of notifying us that you wish to cancel your order. If you wish us to arrange collection of the cancelled goods, the cost of doing so will be at the following rates and be deducted from any refund made to you:
All items = £25.00
You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Goods while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
If the Goods are faulty or mis-described, you should call us on +44 7341 823751 within 30 days of purchase to obtain a Goods Return Number, give full details of the issue and arrange a suitable method of returning the Goods for inspection. You must then return the Goods to us within 14 days and provided you have called us and the goods are found to be genuinely faulty, we will meet the cost of the return to the limit of second-class signed for service. Please note we will not reimburse costs above that if you choose to use Express/Before 1000 or 1200/ First Class Delivery or any premium services. We recommend you insure the goods.
Please examine goods on delivery and notify us by email or phone within 24 hours of any damaged items. Failure to do so will invalidate a claim of damage items.
7. (b) Cancellation, Returns & Damages – Business to Business (B2B)
If you are contracting as a Business to Business customer (B2B) the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 do not apply and you may not cancel a contract once it has been paid for. No cooling off period applies and you are not entitled to a refund, although we may consider a return of goods at our discretion. If you are a Business to Business (B2B) customer please contact us in the first instance on +44 7341 823751 to discuss. Before any decision is made, we will require photographs of the goods you wish to return. The return of goods will only be considered if they are in re-saleable condition, i.e. in original unopened and undamaged packaging, clean and unmarked packaging. If we agree to the goods being returned, a Goods Return Number will be issued and a re-stocking charge will be applied to any refund. The re-stocking charge will vary depending upon the goods returned and will be notified before we consent to accept the goods back. When a Goods Return Number is issued, the agreed goods must be returned within 7 days at your cost and should be insured as in the event the goods arrive damaged or in a non-resaleable condition, no refund will be made and the goods will be held for 14 days in order for you to arrange collection. Any goods returned without prior agreement and a Goods Return Number will be refused.
8. Refusing a delivery once goods have been dispatched – Please note that if you refuse to take delivery of your order from either Royal Mail or our Courier once your order has been dispatched, we reserve the right to bill you for both the cost of sending the item and the return of the item to us. If you wish to know what this cost will be, please contact us before refusing delivery.
The cost of returning a refused item to us will apply, whether or not you have previously notified us, as carriers always charge for taking refused goods back and this cost will be passed on to you by way of deduction from any refund made.
If you refuse an order without instruction from ourselves and it becomes lost in transit we will not refund the value of goods as all liability will have passed to the person who refused the delivery. Any losses or damaged that occurs from lost parcels will be the responsibility of the person who ordered the goods.
9. Refunds – If you return Goods to us:
because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the Cooling Off Period, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of receipt of the returned goods. In this case, we will refund the price of the Goods in full. However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us;
because you consider the Goods to be faulty, incorrect or damaged in transit, we will examine the returned Goods and will notify you of your replacement or refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. If you do not want to accept a replacement, we will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund. We will refund the price of a defective Goods in full, any applicable delivery charges and the costs incurred in returning the item to us up to a maximum of the cost of second class signed-for service. We will not reimburse over that limit if you choose to use a more expensive service.
