by telephone on 0161 866 2490, or
by fax to 0161 865 3153.
Orders will not be accepted by any other means.
After placing an order with us through our site,
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 a Product but the contract between
us (“Contract”) is not formed until we have confirmed our stock levels
and pricing of the Products contained in your order. Such emails shall not be
sent if you place an order by any other means.
Regardless of the method by which you place an
order with us, your order is only accepted by us when we dispatch the Product
or Products you ordered and the Contract shall be formed at this time.
The Contract will relate only to those Products that
have been dispatched. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products
which may have been part of your order unless and until such Products have been
dispatched. We reserve the right to decline any orders for Products which are
out of stock.
To assist with processing your order and
dispatching Products promptly please ensure that you use the correct product
codes and descriptions as set out on our site and our price list. Failure to
do so may result in the incorrect product being sent to you and we shall not be
liable to you in such circumstances.
The price of the Products will be as quoted on
our site and our price list from time to time, except in cases of obvious error
and subject to any changes which we might make as a result of currency
fluctuations in the market(s) from which we source products. We shall notify
you of any such changes before accepting an order from you.
Our delivery charges are set out in clause 5.2.
Product prices exclude VAT which will be charged
to you at the rate subsisting at the date of invoice.
If you are ordering Products to be delivered to
an address outside of the EU you may be subject to import duties and taxes
together with additional charges for customs clearance. These charges are your
responsibility and you should contact your local customs office for further
information. In addition, you agree that you are the importer of record and as
such you must comply with all local laws and regulations. All deliveries are
subject to opening and inspection of customs authorities.
Product prices and delivery charges are liable
to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which
we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
Our site contains a large number of Products and
it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products
listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices
as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is
less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching
the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price
stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for
instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify
you that we are rejecting it.
If the pricing error is obvious and
unmistakeable and could have reasonably recognised by you as an error, we do
not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
Payment for all Products must be by credit or
debit card (we accept payment by VISA and Mastercard only), Paypal or Bank
Transfer. Payments made by credit card will be subject to a surcharge of 3% of
the value of the order to reflect the card issuers charge to us. We will not
charge your credit or debit card until we dispatch your order. We may allow
orders to be paid for by cheque but this shall be at our sole discretion only.
Payments must be made at the following times:
NEW CUSTOMERS –
payment must be made immediately, your order will not be accepted until payment
is made in full.
CREDIT APPROVED CUSTOMERS – subject to our receiving two satisfactory trade references we
may, at our sole discretion, allow a customer to open a credit account on the
terms set out in clause 4.10.
The credit terms referred to in clause 4.9.2
all invoices are to be paid within 30 days,
no orders will be accepted while any invoices
any customer whose credit account regularly goes
overdue will, at our sole discretion, have such credit account suspended, and
interest shall accrue on overdue amounts at a
rate of 8% above the Bank of England base rate from time to time.
Once accepted your order will be fulfilled
within a reasonable time of the acceptance of your order unless there are

transit breakages must be made to us in writing within two days of delivery or,
in the case of a claim for a non-delivery, 2 days from the delivery date
specified in the dispatch confirmation. Subject to us being satisfied,
following investigation, that such claim is a genuine claim and has been
brought within the requisite time, we shall (at our sole discretion) either replace
at our cost any Products affected by such non-delivery, shortage, or in transit
breakage or credit your account in an amount equal to the purchase price for
the Products affected.

your risk on completion of delivery.
Ownership of the Products shall not pass to you

Until ownership of the Products has passed to

products held by you so that they remain readily identifiable as our property;

but you may resell or use the Products in the ordinary
course of your business.
If before ownership of the Products passes to
you, you become unable to pay your debts as they fall due, or we reasonably
believe that you are unable to pay your debts as they fall due then, provided
that the Products have not been resold, or irrevocably incorporated into
another product, and without limiting any other right or remedy we may have, we
may at any time require you to deliver up the Products and, if you fail to do
so promptly, enter any of your premises or of any third party where the
Products are stored in order to recover them.
We warrant to you that any new Product purchased
from us will, on delivery and for the following 12 months, conform in all
material respects with its description, be of satisfactory quality, and be
reasonably fit for all the purposes for which products of that kind are

of the Products, or refund the purchase price of the Products in full.
If any Products returned to us pursuant to
clause 8.1 are returned with any packaging or accessories missing then we shall
reserve the right to reject such return.
If any Products are returned to us pursuant to
clause 8.1 and upon inspection we can establish, or have reasonable cause to
believe, that the fault complained of arose as a result of misuse, modification,
tampering, failure to follow instructions or excessive wear and tear then we
shall reserve the right to reject such return.
Any returns rejected pursuant to clause 8.2 or
clause 8.3 shall be returned to you at your cost, such cost to be debited
