Our contract with you
This agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all previous agreements and understandings between the parties.
Each party acknowledges that, in entering into this agreement, he does not rely on any representation, warranty, information or document or other term not forming part of this agreement.
Because we rely on our suppliers, we do not guarantee that Goods advertised on our website are available.
We may change these terms from time to time. The terms that apply to you are those posted here on Our Website on the day you order Goods. We advise you to print a copy for your records.
If in future, you buy Goods from us under any arrangement which does not involve your payment via Our Website, these terms still apply so far as they can be applied.
Acceptance of your order
Your order is an offer to buy from us. Nothing that we do or say will amount to any acceptance of that offer until we actually dispatch the goods to you. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the goods to you without giving any reason.
At any time before the Goods are despatched, we may decline to supply the Goods to you without giving any reason.
We shall accept your order by e-mail confirmation. That is when our contract is made.
If we do not have all of the Goods you order in stock, we will offer you alternatives. If this happens you may:
accept the alternatives we offer;
cancel all or part of your order.
Price and Payment
It is possible that the price may have increased from that posted on our Website. If that happens, we will not send your order until you have confirmed that you wish to buy at the new price.
Prices are subject to UK value added tax. VAT will be charged at the payment point.
If the item you order is available in parts, you must pay us the full price of your order before we will send any part of it.
Banking charges by the receiving bank on payments to us will be borne by us.
If, by mistake, we have under-priced an item, we will not be liable to supply that item to you at the stated price, provided that we notify you before we dispatch it to you.
The price of the items does not include the delivery charge which will be charged at the rates applicable at the date you place your order and which will be displayed on a page of Our Website before we ask you to pay.
If we owe you money (for this or any other reason), we will credit your credit or debit card as soon as reasonably practicable but in any event no later than14 days from the date when we accept that repayment is due.
Consumer protection: cancellation and exclusions
This paragraph applies if and only if, you are a citizen of the European Union, and you bought the Goods as a Consumer.
You may cancel your order at any time before we despatch your order or before the expiry of 7 working days from the date you receive your order, not including the day you received it.
No term in this agreement shall take effect to reduce or remove any right you have under any law on account of your status as a consumer.
As required by the Distance Selling Regulations, details of our after-sales service and guarantees, if any, are given on our website / in our catalogue.
If you cancel before we have sent the Goods, we will refund to you the price of the Goods and the cost of delivery, if any.
If you cancel after we have despatched the Goods, we will refund the price of the goods only.
If you cancel your order after we have despatched the Goods, you must return them to us within 7 days in the same condition in which you received them. We cannot refund your money if the Goods have been used, worn or damaged.
You are responsible for the cost of returning them.
To assist us in identifying your Goods on receipt by us, we ask you to telephone 020 8524 1931for a returns reference to be placed below our address / returns label.
If you fail to return the goods, within 14 days, we are entitled to arrange for their collection. If we do we shall look to you to repay us the cost of collection.
We will refund your money within 14 days of receipt by us of the returned Goods.
The Law expects an expert to help a buyer to avoid buying a product which may be unsuitable in some way. We are retailers we are not experts in any of the Goods we sell. You alone must decide whether a product is suitable for your requirement.
This paragraph does not affect your rights in the event that the Goods are faulty.
Delivery and pick up
Deliveries will be made by the Carrier to the address stipulated in your order. You must ensure that someone is present to accept delivery.
If we are not able to deliver your Goods within  days of the date of your order, we shall notify you by e-mail to arrange another date for delivery.
We may deliver the Goods in instalments if they are not all available at the same time for delivery.
Goods are sent at our risk until signed for by you or by any other person at the address you have given to us.
All goods must be signed for on delivery by an adult aged 18 years or over. If no one of that age is at the address when the delivery is attempted the goods may be retained by the driver. When your Goods arrive it is important that you check immediately the condition and quantity. If your Goods have been damaged in transit, you must refuse the delivery and contact us so that we may dispatch a replacement quickly and minimise your inconvenience.
Signing "Unchecked", "Not Checked" or similar is not acceptable.
Goods weighing less than 1kg may be sent by Royal Mail and may not require a signature.
If we agree with you to deliver on a particular day or at a particular time, we will do our best to comply. But no time given is to be treated as contractual. So we are not liable to you for any expense or inconvenience you incur on account of delayed delivery or non-delivery.
Some items may be delivered direct from the manufacturer. When delivery of the items has been arranged directly with the manufacturer, you will be subject to the manufacturer's delivery policy.
Time for delivery specified on the Order, if any, is an estimate only and time shall not be of the essence.
Foreign taxes and duties
If you are not in the UK, we have no knowledge of, and no responsibility for, the laws in your country.
You are responsible for purchasing Goods which you are lawfully able to import and for the payment of import duties and taxes of any kind levied in your country.
Liability for subsequent defects
We will repair or replace Goods which fail to comply with the provisions of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 or which show a defect. If you claim that the item is defective, the following conditions apply:
the defect must be reported to us within four weeks of becoming apparent;
the defect results only from faulty design or manufacture;
you have returned the defective Goods or parts to us if we have so requested.
If we agree that we are liable, we will refund the cost of return carriage and will repair or replace the Goods free of charge.
If we repair or replace Goods, you have no additional claim against us either under this agreement or by statute or common law, in respect of the defect.
These provisions apply in the event that you return any Goods to us for any reason:
We do not accept returns unless you buy as a consumer, or there was a defect in the Goods at the time of purchase, or we have agreed in correspondence that you may return them.

The Goods must be returned to us as soon as any defect is discovered.
