Payment of the price for the goods represents an offer on your part to purchase the goods, which will be accepted by us only when the goods are dispatched. Only at this point is a legally binding contract created between us.
Acknowledgement of your order

Accuracy of content
We have taken care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular to ensure that prices quoted are correct at the time of publishing and that all goods have been described accurately. However, orders will only be processed if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or their prices as advertised on this website. Any weights, dimensions and capacities given about the goods are approximate only.
Damage to your computer
We try to ensure that this website is free from viruses or defects. However, we cannot guarantee that your use of this website or any websites accessible through it will not cause damage to your computer. It is your responsibility to ensure that the right equipment is available to use the website. Except in the case of negligence on our part, we will not be liable to any person for any loss or damage which may arise to computer equipment as a result of using this website.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. If the goods you have ordered are not available from stock, we will contact you by e-mail or phone (if you have given us details). You will have the option either to wait until the item is available from stock or to cancel your order.
You are able to correct errors on your order up to the point on which you click on “submit” during the ordering process.
The prices payable for goods that you order are as set out on our website. All prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rates and are correct at the time of entering information.
Where it is not possible to accept your order to buy goods of the specification and description at the price indicated, we will advise you by email, and offer to sell you the goods of the specification and description at the price stated in the email and will state in the email the period for which the offer or the price remains valid.
Our quotations are valid for 30 days and lapse after this time (unless otherwise stated).
We will take payment upon receipt of your order from your credit or debit card. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the goods from you, then we can refuse to process your order and/or suspend any further deliveries to you. This does not affect any other rights we may have.
Delivery charges vary according to the type of goods ordered and the area we are delivering to.
11.1 Our delivery charges are set out in our Delivery heading and also at checkout when you enter your delivery address, in our website.
[11.2 You will be required to pay extra for delivery and it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations.
[11.3 Please note that we are only able to deliver to addresses within our postcode finder range. If you require delivery outside of this area please contact our office for further details.
11.4 We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. Please be precise about where you would like the goods left if you are out when we deliver, please bear in mind that your delivery will be lifted off our vehicle by a hiab lift so the driver will be able to life into your front garden/driveway only. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions (unless this is caused by our negligence). We will aim to deliver the goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed and therefore time is not of the essence. In any event, we will aim to deliver your goods within 30 days from the day after the day we received your order. If delivery is delayed beyond this time, we will contact you and either agree a mutually acceptable alternative date, or offer you a full refund.
11.5 You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when they have been delivered to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.
11.6 We may decline to deliver if we believe that it would be unsafe, unlawful or unreasonably difficult to do so, or your premises or access to them are unsuitable for our vehicle.
11.7 We may charge you for abortive delivery costs, if you do not accept delivery at the quoted delivery time (or any later time agreed in writing).
Risk and ownership
Risk of damage to or loss of the goods passes to you at the time of delivery to you. Delivery takes place at either our premises (if you are collecting them or if you choose to use your own courier then the risk passes to you as soon as the goods are handed to your courier). You will only own the goods once they have been successfully delivered. You must inspect the goods on delivery and if any goods are damaged or not delivered you must inform us in writing within 5 days of delivery. You must also allow us a chance to inspect any damaged goods.
