Terms & Conditions

All goods are supplied by us subject to these Conditions, which supersede any earlier sets of Conditions appearing in our catalogues or elsewhere and which shall override any terms of conditions stipulated, incorporated or referred to by the Buyer, whether in the order or in any negotiations.
The relaxation or waiver by us of any of these Conditions on any occasion shall act merely as a waiver on that occasion and shall not affect our right to enforce any of these Conditions on any subsequent occasion.
Any variation of these Conditions must be confirmed in writing by us and will not otherwise be valid.
No order shall be deemed to have been accepted by us unless it is accepted by us in writing.
Any description given by us of the goods is given by way of identification only and the use of such description shall not constitute the contract a sale by description.

Any quotation, if not previously withdrawn, will hold good for any order made pursuant to it within thirty days of its date. Subject to this, all orders are accepted for execution at prices current at the date of dispatch. Listed prices are subject to change or withdrawal without notice.
All prices are shown in £s sterling and exclude VAT  at the applicable current rates.
No discounts will apply other than those set out in our standard price list.

Terms of payment are strictly, debit/credit card with order unless a credit account has been established with us.
Where a credit account has been established with us, payment must be made for each instalment of goods delivered within 30 days from the date of invoice (whether the goods delivered are the whole or only part of the goods ordered). We reserve the right at our complete discretion to refuse to establish a credit account for any Buyer, to refuse credit to any Buyer notwithstanding that a credit account may already have been established and to withdraw established credit account facilities.

We may also impose a back billing charge for part cancellation if the reduction in quantity radically affects the pricing structure.

No goods will be accepted back without firstly receiving an authorised Returns Number.

No contract shall be invalidated because of printing or clerical errors.

Any time or date quoted by us for delivery is given and intended as an estimate only. Whilst every endeavour will be made to meet an estimated time of delivery, we shall not be liable to make good any damage or loss whether arising directly or indirectly out of delay in delivery.
Non-delivery within 4 days of the date of dispatch must be reported immediately in writing to us and to the carriers.

When the goods are delivered to the Buyer without previous examination by him, he shall inspect them immediately on arrival and shall within 7 days from such inspection give written notice to us of any matter or thing by reason of which he may allege that the goods are not in accordance with the contract. If the Buyer shall fail to give such notice the goods shall be deemed to be in all respects of accordance with the contract.

The Buyer shall not remove, alter or otherwise interfere with the marks or numbers on any goods supplied by us.

(I) we shall be entitled to repossess and re-sell goods delivered to the Buyer and not paid for in full and for that purpose to enter upon the property in which they are situated.
ii) we shall be entitled either to suspend all further deliveries to the Buyer until the default is made good or to refuse to deliver any further goods to the Buyer and to re-sell any further goods ordered by the Buyer whether they are the balance of an order or the whole of a further order).
