The Contract between us

To make a purchase from our web site, you must complete the on-line registration form.

Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.

After you place an order, you will receive confirmation from us acknowledging that we have received your order.  However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. 

We accept your order by dispatching your order to you. The contract between us will only be formed when we dispatch your order to you.

If we are not able to dispatch all the goods in your order at one time due to operational reasons or shortage of stock, we will dispatch the goods in instalments. We will not charge you extra delivery costs for this. Each instalment will constitute a separate contract governed by these Terms.

If we are unable to supply you with goods, for example because that item is not in stock or no longer available or because of an error in the price on our site, we will inform you of this and we will not process your order.

We are not obliged to accept any order(s) you submit.
 

Prices

Prices are subject to alteration without prior notice.

All prices are exclusive of VAT at ruling rates and delivery costs.

We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of goods are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However as our site contains a large number of products, it is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the goods on our site may be incorrectly priced.

If we discover an error in the price of the goods you have ordered we will inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the goods at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not accept and process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price. We will at times discover that goods have been incorrectly priced after the goods have been dispatched and therefore cannot give the option of cancelling the order.
