1.5 The processing of your payment and acknowledgment of your order does not constitute legal acceptance of your order.
3.1 On our website, you may place an order to purchase a product advertised for sale by following the onscreen prompts after clicking on the item you wish to purchase. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you place your order by clicking the "Place order and pay" button on the checkout page.
3.2 All orders placed by you, and purchases of goods by you from us, are subject to acceptance by us (as described in clause 1.2). We may choose not to accept your order or purchase for any reason and will not be liable to you or to anyone else in those circumstances.
3.3 Where we accept your order, we have a legal duty to supply goods that are in conformity with these Terms and Conditions.
4.1 The price payable for the goods you order or purchase is as set out on our website at the time you submit your order, plus any charges for delivery as advised to you. The price payable for the goods includes VAT at the current prevailing UK rate. We cannot refund any VAT charges.
4.2 We reserve the right to change the price of commodity goods, such as copper, at any time due to market conditions but we will confirm the prevailing price with you before accepting your order or purchase. We are not obliged to accept your order or purchase for such goods and may decline it or limit the order quantity. Parcelforce is not obliged to accept your request for delivery services.
4.3 Delivery charges where payable will be added to the total amount due once you have selected the Parcelforce delivery service as set out in Delivery information. If you order over a certain amount, the delivery charges will be shown on your invoice as reduced to zero as in certain cases we will pay the delivery charge to Parcelforce on your behalf. In other cases we may make a contribution towards the cost of delivery charges on your behalf. In all cases, you will continue to contract with Parcelforce for the delivery services and all other conditions continue to apply.
4.4 Occasionally, we advertise goods at a promotional price; you must quote the relevant promotion code, otherwise you may be charged the full price.
4.5 Occasionally, an error may occur and goods may be either incorrectly priced or described in which case we will not be obliged to supply the goods at the incorrect price or in accordance with the incorrect description or at all. We reserve the right to correct any errors from time to time. We will (at our discretion) either cancel your order and refund the price you have paid or use reasonable endeavours to contact you and ask you whether you wish to continue with the order at the correct price or description. If we are unable to contact you or you do not wish to continue with the order at the correct price or correct description, we will cancel your order and refund the price you have paid.
4.6 We must receive payment for the whole of the price of the goods you order and purchase, and any applicable charges for delivery, before your order can be processed unless we have agreed otherwise in advance in writing. Payment must be made by one of the methods set out on the 'Payment Options' page of our website, (although for certain age-restricted products only a credit card may be used).
4.7 By using a credit/debit card to pay for your order or purchase, you confirm that the card being used is yours or that you are authorised to use it. By using PayPal you confirm that the PayPal account being used is yours.
4.8 All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. All PayPal payments are subject to authorisation by PayPal. If the issuer of the card or PayPal refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your order or purchase, we will not be obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal, and we will not be liable for the item not being delivered or provided to you. We are not responsible for the card issuer or bank charging the holder of the card as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order or purchase or if PayPal charges you for making the order.
4.9 If your credit/debit card or PayPal account is not denominated in Euros, the final price charged to your credit/debit card or PayPal account will be in the currency of your card or Paypal account and may include currency conversion charges. Such final price is calculated and charged by your card issuer, bank or PayPal, and therefore we shall not be responsible for any cost expense charge or other liability incurred or suffered by you as a result of your card issuer, bank or PayPal charging you in a currency other than Euros.
4.10 We recommend that you do not communicate your payment card details or PayPal password to anyone, including us, by email. Subject to clause 10.5, we cannot be responsible for any losses you may incur in transmitting information to us by internet link or by email. Any such loss shall be entirely your responsibility.
4.11 We shall be entitled at all times to set off any debt or claim which we may have against you against any sums due from us to you.
4.12 The format of our invoice and statements to you will solely be dictated by us.
5.1 We will make them available to Parcelforce for collection at our UK premises and Parcelforce (except in exceptional circumstance) will aim to deliver them in accordance with your order usually within the stated delivery time but not more than 30 days after the day you place your order, unless otherwise agreed between you and us. We reserve the right to deliver an order in instalments by separate delivery shipments. Further information about delivery of our goods can be found at Delivery.
5.2 Before placing your order, please refer to the delivery options set out on our website to ensure that we can deliver to your address. A valid signature may be required on collection or delivery. In the unlikely event that you have not received all the goods within the stated delivery time, you must notify us immediately. We strongly suggest that you do not schedule or commence any installation work until after you have received your order and checked all the goods are suitable for your purposes and do not have any defects or missing parts.
5.3 For reasons of health and safety and to avoid any property damage, items can only be delivered to the exterior of a ground floor location at the delivery address. You must therefore make your own arrangements at your own risk if the relevant item needs to be transported from the delivery location. We will not provide any unpacking, installation, fitting or waste removal services upon delivery unless otherwise agreed by us in writing.
5.4 You must do all that you reasonably can to enable delivery to take place at the given time and place. If you delay delivery, or delivery fails because you have not taken appropriate steps, we will try to arrange for an alternative delivery date within 30 days of the failed delivery. If delivery fails as a result of circumstances within your reasonable control, the cost of any re-delivery shall be borne by you. If we are unable to arrange a date for re-delivery we may cancel your order and refund to you the price that you have paid for the goods, less the failed delivery costs.
5.5 For European deliveries, ownership and risk in the goods will pass to you immediately at the point and time in which such goods are placed at your disposal at our UK premises
6.1 All goods are subject to availability. While we endeavour to hold sufficient stock to meet all orders and purchases, if we have insufficient stock to supply or deliver the goods ordered and paid for by you, we will attempt to contact you using the details you have provided to us to ask you how you wish to proceed. We may, at our discretion, process any part of the order which is available. Where goods are out of stock, we will refund you the price paid for such goods as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days or, in the case of an account customer, we may, in our absolute discretion, as soon as possible raise a credit to offset the amount invoiced to you.
