4. How The Contract Is Formed Between You & Us

4.1 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order.  Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy the Goods.

4.2 All orders are subject to availability.  If an item is not in stock at the time you place your order, we will notify you and refund you the total amount of your order, using the original method of payment.  If available, your order is subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the offer has been accepted and the Goods have been dispatched (the Dispatch Confirmation).  The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.

4.3 The Contract will relate only to those Goods whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation.  We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Goods has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

6. Risk & Title

6.1 The Goods will be at your risk from the time Goods are loaded onto the third party despatch vehicle.

6.2 Ownership of the Goods will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Goods, including delivery charges.
Back to top of terms and conditions


7. Price & Payment

7.1 The price of any Goods will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.

7.2 These prices exclude VAT (unless indicated otherwise) and delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due as set out in the confirmation of order before you place your order. 

7.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.

7.4 Our site contains a large number of Goods and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods listed on our site may be incorrectly priced.  We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to you.  If a product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Goods, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.

7.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.

7.6 Payment for all Goods must be by credit or debit card.  We accept payment with most generally accepted credit and debit cards.  We will not charge your credit or debit card until we despatch your order. Credit accounts are available by separate agreement if we deem it appropriate. Payment in respect of such credit accounts (if granted) shall be made in full by the end of the month following that in which the order is placed, or 30 business days from the date of order, whichever is the sooner.
