6 – How the contract is formed between you and us
Your order is an offer to buy from us. When you are placing an order, the following steps have to take place before a contract for the sale of Products (“Contract”) is made between us in relation to your order:
7 – Cancellation of a contract (If you are a consumer)
We believe you’ll be delighted with your purchase, but if you are a consumer and have purchased Product(s) online, you have rights under various legislation to cancel the Contract (including under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 and the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (or from 1 October 2015, the Consumer Rights Act 2015). We have set these rights out below for convenience. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.
You have a right to cancel a Contract for any reason within 14 days
You have a right to cancel a Contract for any reason, including if you change your mind, until 23:59 on the 14th (fourteenth) day after the day on which you (or the person you have identified to take delivery of the Products) takes physical possession of the Product.
However, if you have ordered
You can tell us that you wish to cancel the Contract in the period set out by:
You have the right to cancel a Contract if the Product(s) are faulty or not as described
If the Products are not of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose (i.e. fit for the purpose for which it was intended to be used or a purpose made known to us in writing) or are not as described, you may either:
If you request a repair or replacement as set out in paragraph 6.4(b), and we do not do this properly, you may either:
The rights above do not affect your right to claim compensation for any losses you may have suffered as a result of the faulty Product(s)
Please note that we do not accept returns or provide refunds if a fault arises from fair wear and tear, willful or accidental damage, negligence by you or a third party, abnormal or inappropriate storage or working conditions, failure to operate or use the Product(s) in accordance with the user instructions or unauthorised misuse or alteration of the Product(s) by you or a third party. Under no circumstances will we accept returns or provide refunds more than 6 years after the date of delivery.
8 – Our Returns and Refund Policy (If you are a consumer)
If you cancel a Contract for any reason, or reject the Product(s) for being faulty, we will collect the Product(s) from you for free. We will telephone you (using the number you included in your order) to confirm certain details in order to arrange the collection. For small, low-value items, we may decide not to collect the Product, and will instead send you a pre-paid, padded envelope, which you can use to post the Product back to us. You will need to send the Product(s) back to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you have given notice of your cancellation.
Please note that if your order includes Cylinder Gas, and you cancel the Contract, either under the fourteen-day period as set out in paragraph 6, or for any other reason (e.g. defective Products), the collection of the Cylinder will be at a different time, and possibly a different day, to the collection of the other Product(s) that you are returning.
If you cancel a Contract, all ancillary contracts you have entered into associated with the cancelled Products will be automatically cancelled.
We will make any refund due to you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. You will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
If you cancel the Contract within 14 days for any reason
If you cancel the Contract within 14 days for any reason (see paragraph 6.2), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case:
We will refund the price that you paid for the Product in full, including any costs of standard delivery (if you have selected a different delivery option, we will only refund up to the amount of our usual standard delivery costs). You should take reasonable care of the Product(s) while they are in your possession as we have the right to make a deduction from any refund due to you if the Product(s) are not returned in a reasonable condition. In particular, we reserve the right to deduct a sum from the refund of the price for the Product(s) to reflect the reduced value of the Product(s) if the Product(s) have been handled more than is necessary (i.e. in a way which would not be permitted in a shop).
If the Product is faulty or defective
If the Product is faulty or defective, you should contact us by sending us an email to email@example.com or by telephone on 0800 1814512. If you contact us by email, our first action will be to call you on the phone number in your order to discuss the issue with you. We will examine the returned Product(s) and notify you within a reasonable time by telephone if you are entitled to a refund. We will process the refund for defective or faulty Product(s) as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days of us agreeing that you are entitled to a refund.
If you exercise your “short term” right to reject the Product(s) within 30 days of delivery (see paragraph 6.4), we will refund to you the full price of the Product(s) including any delivery changes. We may ask you for evidence that the defect was there at the time of delivery or further information about the defect.
If you exercise your “final right” to a refund (having requested a repair or replacement and this having been unsuccessful – see paragraph 6.5(b)):
9 – Availability and Delivery
Products are subject to availability. In the event that we are unable to supply the Products, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available, we will telephone you as soon as possible (and no more than 48 hours following receipt of your order) and we will not process your order. If possible, we will give you the option of continuing with your order with a longer delivery lead time or continuing with part of your order. A full refund will be given where you have already paid for any Product(s) which cannot be supplied as soon as possible, by the same method in which the payment was originally made.
Deliveries are restricted to mainland Great Britain. You may place an order for Product(s) from outside mainland Great Britain, but this order must be for delivery to an address in mainland Great Britain.
Our aim is to deliver the Products to you within the times displayed on the website for the Product. If we cannot deliver the Products within the time shown, we will contact you by either telephone or e-mail to provide you with a revised estimate.
Time for delivery shall not be of the essence. This shall not affect any rights which you may have as a consumer.
Delivery will be made to the address specified by you when you place your order. This must be an address within mainland Great Britain. Please note that for safety reasons, deliveries are not made to flats which are above four stories and we do not deliver to basement storeys in any circumstances. Please note that deliveries to flats of up to four stories are only permitted if the flats areof traditional build (to be determined in our reasonable opinion). We may cancel the Contract if the delivery address is to a flat above four stories or is of non-traditional build.
You must ensure that someone is available to take delivery of the Products (see paragraph 8.4 above about multiple deliveries). You must also ensure that suitable access is available for the purpose of delivery of the Products. If you fail to take delivery of the Products or fail to ensure that suitable access is available for the purpose of their delivery then we will attempt to redeliver the Products at another time.
It is your responsibility to arrange inspection of the Products immediately upon delivery. You will be required to confirm receipt of the Products by signing a delivery note when taking delivery. However, your inspection of the Products and your confirmation of receipt does not affect any rights you may have if the Products are defective on delivery.
Any delivery charges will be clearly marked on our site and at the checkout and added to your order.
10 – Price and Payment
The price of any Products will be as quoted on our site. We use our best efforts to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered on the system.
Prices on our site include VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
Prices of Products quoted on our site do not include delivery charges or any cylinder refill. Our delivery charges and cylinder refills are as set out on our site from time to time.
Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already dispatched the Products.
