Delivery and Inspection and Installation of Goods
The goods you order will be delivered to the same address as the registered credit card holder. Be aware that the delivery drivers are not insured to take their vehicles on roads other than public highways. If your address is not on a public road, and the goods are on pallets, then the delivery driver will only take the goods to the limit of the public road. Smaller items can often be carried by the driver. If you refuse delivery because the driver will not deliver to your door, you will be charged for the delivery costs and any collection fees. If you are unsure, please check with us prior to placing an order.
To keep our prices as low as possible, deliveries are made by a single driver, so for heavy items the driver may need assistance, as they are not permitted to carry large and heavy items due to Health & Safety rules. Please note that you must ensure that an able bodied person is available at the premises all day, on the agreed date, as re-delivery costs can be greater than the original charge.
Any dates quoted for delivery of the goods are approximate only, and shall not form part of the contract. The Supplier shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the goods however caused, and in particular the Supplier shall not be liable for any tradesman or other installation costs incurred by the Buyer if delivery of the goods is delayed. You should only arrange for tradesmen to install the goods once they have been received and checked and you are satisfied. If the Supplier is unable to deliver the goods by the date quoted for delivery you shall be entitled to cancel the order at any time before delivery takes place.
You agree to inspect the goods on delivery for damage and shortages, all discrepancies must be clearly marked on the drivers delivery paperwork.
You agree to inspect the goods on delivery for any damages and shortages. If an item on a delivery is damaged, make a note of the damaged item on the delivery paperwork and e-mail us with the details. Do not refuse the whole delivery unless every item is damaged. If you refuse a delivery with any undamaged items on it you may be charged for the return and the redelivery of those items. Please be aware that the cost of large pallet deliveries will be considerably higher than the amount you were charged for delivery.
You must also notify us within 24 hours. We will not accept liability for shortages if they are reported outside of this period.
You agree to indemnify us in full for any losses we suffer as a result of you accepting goods and signing a delivery note without checking the goods for carrier damage.

This does not apply to any goods that were ordered specially for you, that are not normally held in stock, i.e. whirlpools, and certain other items. We recommend that you contact our sales office to check whether goods fall in to this category before ordering.
Restocking charges will apply on all goods that we agree to take back outside of these terms.
To exercise your right of cancellation, you must give written notice to the Supplier by hand, post, fax, or e-mail, giving details of the goods ordered and (where appropriate) their delivery. Notification by phone alone shall not be deemed sufficient.

The goods must be returned in the same condition as supplied and you must take reasonable care of the goods until they are returned.

All returns that are sent back as faulty are tested, and if the item proves not to be faulty, but has not yet been fitted, then only the product value will be refunded. You will be charged the actual cost of the delivery and the collection.
