The following terms and conditions apply to all transactions processed by this site and over phone lines. Please read

carefully and print a copy for reference.

1.

All prices are shown in £ sterling and include V.A.T. but not delivery charges. We reserve the right to change any

advertised prices at any time. The price you pay is the price displayed on this website at the time we receive your order

except in the instance where an error has occurred with the data making up the information which is projected through

the website. In the event that an error is discovered with the price of any goods you may have ordered we will inform

you as soon as we can possibly contact you whereupon we will give you the option of amending and processing your

order at the correct price or cancelling it. In the possible event that we cannot contact you we will treat the order as

cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods we will give you a full refund.

2.

Delivery service is only available within TYNE & WEAR and/or 15 MILES of WALLSEND NORTH TYNESIDE

Delivery will usually be within 2-5 working days depending on the product that has been ordered (i.e. excluding

weekends and bank holidays). A signature will be required by the account holder unless pre arranged with a customer

service advisor. Delivery dates are estimated at all times and may be delayed without prior notice, which is why we

strongly advise all customers not to book fitters until they have received the relevant goods, as no claims will be

accepted. Whilst we make every reasonable attempt to deliver promptly and within the estimated time frame, we

cannot be held responsible for sudden stock shortages or manufacturing delays. Please note that we shall not be liable

for any losses, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused by any delay in delivering goods.

3.

To keep our prices as competitive as possible, items delivered by our own delivery drivers are only one man

deliveries. We will only deliver to ground floor properties (unless a lift is available); this can include a maximum

of 4 steps. Please call us if this affects your order as undelivered products caused by this problem will incur a

redelivery charge. Certain products may be delivered up or down a flight of stairs at a premium cost. Please call us to

find out if the items you require can be delivered in this way.

Once the delivery has been accepted at the delivery address the customer has a duty of care for the goods. In the

event that you, or a third party, transport the goods from the delivery address to another location we cannot be held

responsible for any damages.

Whilst our own drivers are quite happy to wheel your product into an unobstructed room of your choice, we cannot be

held responsible for any damage incurred. It is the customer’s responsibility to protect any floor coverings to prevent

damage while the products are being situated in the property.

Acceptance of your order takes place when the goods leave our warehouse. In the event of the customer failing to

take delivery of the goods or cancelling the order after this point, redelivery, cancellation, collection and/or rehandling

charges may be applied.

You must ensure that you can be available all day on your chosen day of delivery; if you find you cannot keep to the

delivery date you must notify us before 12 noon one working day before. You cannot choose your own delivery

timeslot as these are allocated by our automated route planning system. Once issued your time slot cannot be changed,

therefore you must be in to accept the delivery, otherwise a failed delivery charge of £24.99 (or £49.99 for items over

70cm in width) will apply. You will be notified of your 2 hour delivery timeslot by email and SMS between 5pm and

6pm the day before delivery.

Redelivery or cancellation charges may also be charged in the event that a delivery fails due to parking restrictions or

other access problems (e.g. stairs or narrow doorways) which you fail to notify our telesales operators of. By booking

your own delivery date at the checkout you are agreeing that there are no such access or parking restrictions which we

should be aware of.

If requested we will collect old appliances for recycling on a like-for-like basis when we deliver your new item(s). We

make a charge for this service to cover collection and transportation.

Additional services which have been ordered but are then declined by the customer upon delivery are non-refundable,

as we allocate space for these services on our delivery vehicles. This includes ‘Old Product Collection’, ‘Unwrap and

Remove Packaging’ and ‘Two Man Delivery’ services.

We endeavour to send all customers an expected 2-hour delivery timeslot via e-mail and mobile phone SMS message

the day before delivery if they provide the necessary details. Our deliveries are made between the hours of 8am and

9pm, Monday to Friday, 10am and 3pm Sundays (No deliveries on bank holidays). A signature will be required upon

delivery.

4.

All products are subject to availability and may be changed at any time. If your order cannot be fulfilled you will

be offered an alternative or given a full refund. Payment can be made by most major credit cards (except American

Express and Diners Club cards). We also accept any debit card or cheque. If the customer chooses to pay by cheque

then the order is created when the cheque has been received and cleared. Full payment for your goods is taken when a

new order is created.

5.

If an order is received for a discontinued product we will provide the up-to-date equivalent automatically,

providing it is available and the same price as the discontinued model. If this is not the case we will contact you.

6.

Under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, you have the right to cancel your order

within seven days of receipt of the goods, without giving a reason. The customer has the choice of returning the goods

via his/her own means, or requesting a collection, in which case the cost of returning the goods to us will be deducted

from the refund.

The goods must be unused and ‘as new’ with their original box and packaging including all manuals(Please do not

mark or hand write on manuals), accessories and remote control(if supplied). You must notify us within 7 days from

the date of delivery. All goods must be received within 14 days of notification of your wish to cancel. In all cases

it will be your responsibility to return the goods to us at your own cost and risk. Goods received back ‘as new’ but

incomplete with missing components and accessories will incur charges. Goods received back in any condition other

than ‘as new’ will be returned back to you. Any item specifically ordered or any cables cut or terminated will not be

returned or credited under any circumstances.

Full refunds can only be provided for items which are returned to us in their original condition. The customer has a

duty of care while the goods are in their possession; we reserve the right to charge you for any damage that may have

occurred whilst the goods have been in your possession. Please retain and return any packaging that your goods came

with. In addition, if you require us to collect we will charge £49.99 for all items, except range cookers over 70cm and

American side-by-side fridge freezers which will be charged at £99.99 and all brown goods which will be charged at

£99.99. Cancellations after 7 days will be subject to a rehandling charge of 25% for each product. This charge also

applies to any returned products which have been removed from their packaging.

Refunds will be reimbursed within 30 working days of the cancellation date. Cancellations must be requested within

7 working days. The 7 day cancellation period for each appliance commences the day after the day of delivery of that

appliance. All cancellations must be sent in writing or email to our head office address (please see contact details

page).

When placing your order over the phone or in store, you may be offered the choice of paying a deposit instead of pre-

payment in full (e.g. for large orders or specialist items). This deposit is non-refundable should you choose to cancel

the order after 14 days.

7.

We will endeavour to take all possible reasonable care to keep all details of your order and payment secure.

However in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party

procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering.

8.

Damaged goods must be reported within 24 hours of delivery. In cases of goods received damaged please

retain the product (together with any packaging) and contact us within 24 hours of receipt with photographic evidence.

This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer. In the case of non-delivery please wait 7 days from the date of

your order in case it has been delayed.

In the case of an item being faulty we require an inspection by a manufacturer’s qualified engineer to be carried out on

the item where it is installed so we can ascertain the fault before we can arrange for a replacement.

Do not install any damaged or unwanted items. This counts as acceptance of goods and the item is then non-returnable

and non-refundable.

A fee will be charged to cover losses associated with handling and repackaging if the item has been unpacked.

9.

We offer an installation service. Please see our installation terms and conditions for more details about this service.

If a connection fails because the customer did not inform of us of any reason why it may not be successful or because

the customer did not comply with the reasons mentioned on the installation terms and conditions page we reserve the

right to make a failed connection charge of half the amount of the original connection charge. This applies on a per

appliance basis.

10.

We take all complaints very seriously. If you have a cause for complaint then please write to us at the address

shown on our contact page.

11.

None of the above affects your statutory rights as a consumer.

12.

All items carry a minimum twelve months parts and labour guarantee issued by the manufacturer which is subject

to provisions that the appliance:

Has been used solely for domestic purposes and is on domestic premises; ie. not for commercial or trade use.

Has been used solely in accordance with the instruction book.

Has not been subject to misuse, accident, modified or repaired by anyone other than the manufacturer’s service

engineers.

We do offer extended 3 and 5 year warranties which cover parts, labour and accidental damage. These are

underwritten by Safeguard and can be purchased over the telephone. More details are available from our sales

advisors.

13.

All product information shown on the website is believed to be correct and accurate from the source material (i.e.

manufacturer’s documentation). However we regret that we cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions.
