    3. Please note that the prices payable for Goods and Services in-store may vary from those stated on our Website

Delivery

  • The Goods are delivered to you when we make them available to you at a delivery point agreed by us.
  • Time of delivery will not be of the essence and any delivery date is an estimate only. We will use all reasonable endeavours to avoid late deliveries. You will have the right to cancel any order without liability to us if delivery is more than 30 days late.
  • The quantity of any consignment of Goods as recorded by us upon despatch from our place of business will be conclusive evidence of the quantity received by you on delivery unless you can provide conclusive evidence proving the contrary.
  • Our liability for non-delivery of the Goods will be limited to, at our discretion, replacing the Goods within a reasonable time, issuing a credit note at the pro rata Contract rate against any invoice raised for such Goods or a refund of the purchase price paid.
  • Any claim that any Goods have been delivered damaged or do not materially comply with their description will be notified by you to us and (where appropriate, to the carrier) within 7 days of their delivery. Provided that you return such Goods to us we will at our sole discretion replace such Goods, issue you with a credit note for the price of such Goods or refund the price paid for such Goods.
  • Any claim that any Goods have not been delivered to you by us or our appointed carriers where we claim we have delivered the same to you, or left the Goods in a safe place or delivered the Goods to your neighbour and/or our appointed carriers have obtained a signature for the delivery of the Goods (from any of the above (where applicable), such claim must be notified by you to us within 7 days of their expected delivery. We shall then liaise with our carrier and/or our driver and we may require copies of two forms of personal identification documents from you (such as passport, driving licence, bank card etc.) or any third party. Once we have reviewed all documentary evidence and statements from the relevant drivers we shall then come back to you within a reasonable timescale of our decision (to replace such Goods, issue you with a credit note for the price of such Goods, refund the price paid for such Goods or to not provide any of the aforementioned) which shall be final and binding.
  • We may at our discretion deliver the Goods by installments in any sequence. Where the Goods are delivered by installments, no default or failure by us in respect of any one or more installments will vitiate the Contract in respect of the Goods previously delivered or undelivered Goods.
  • If you fail to take delivery of the Goods or accept performance of the Services or any part thereof at the time agreed for delivery, then we will be entitled to cancel or suspend such delivery and all other outstanding deliveries and to charge you for the reasonable loss suffered.
  • If you fail to take delivery of the Goods or fail to give us adequate delivery instructions at the time stated for delivery (otherwise than by reason of any cause beyond your reasonable control or by reason of our fault) then, without limiting any other right or remedy available to us, we may at our absolute discretion:
    1. store the Goods until actual delivery and charge you for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of the failed delivery and aborted installation costs, storage, re-delivery and installation costs; or
    2. sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to you for the excess over the price under the Contract or charge you for any shortfall below the price under the Contract.
  • For the avoidance of doubt, delivery of Goods shall be deemed to take place upon our or our agent’s arrival at the site specified in the Order or as may have been agreed (“Delivery”).
  • We shall not be liable for any delay in Delivery of the Goods howsoever caused and time for Delivery shall not be of the essence of any contract for us.
  • The Goods may be delivered by us in advance of the estimated delivery date which shall be confirmed with you (“Advance Date”).
  • If for any reason it is not possible for you to accept Delivery on that Advance Date you must notify us immediately in writing upon you receiving confirmation of the Advance Date.
  • You will indemnify us for any processing, delivery and return costs incurred by us or and/or our agents if you fail to provide us with appropriate notice and the Goods have been dispatched.
  • We may (at our discretion) deliver the Goods in installments in any sequence, in which case each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by us to deliver any one or more of the installments in accordance with these terms or any claim by you in respect of any one or more installments will not vitiate the Contract in respect of the Goods previously delivered or any undelivered Goods nor shall it entitle you to treat the Contract as a whole as repudiated.
