By placing an order through our site, you warrant that: You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and That you accept our Terms and Conditions as set out herein.
Where you place an order for or otherwise purchase age-restricted goods such as solvents, axes, knives, and knife blades, you confirm that you are over the age of 18 and that (where applicable) delivery will be accepted by a person over the age of 18. We reserve the right to cancel your order or purchase if we reasonably believe you do not meet the age restrictions for certain goods.
For website orders, payment can be made by most major credit or debit cards, by completing the relevant details on the checkout page.
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 14 days
The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.
All prices quoted are inclusive of VAT unless you have checked the slider setting at the top of the website to Ex VAT. The only possible additional charge above the price quoted for the item is a carriage charge. However, the VAT element of each purchase is clearly detailed on the invoice that will be provided to you.
Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products 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 Product 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 Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the Product 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.
Occasionally, we advertise goods at a promotional price; you must quote the relevant promotion code, otherwise you may be charged the full price.
We process and dispatch orders on working weekdays (Monday to Friday), excluding bank holidays. We have a number of delivery partners that we use to deliver your orders and they are chosen based on a number of factors such as your order size and delivery location.
Orders placed outside of working hours or on weekends will be processed the next working day, in accordance with the delivery speed chosen in your order. As soon as orders are dispatched you will receive an email stating that your goods are en-route.
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.
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.
Full delivery details, including any charges, lead times and delivery methods can be found under the My Account section within the website.
Please let us know within 3 working days if anything is missing/incorrect/damaged from your order. Orders not delivered must be reported to us within 2 weeks of receiving the dispatch confirmation email.
If you have any queries relating to the delivery of your order, please contact us by sending us a message by clicking on the contact Us section of the website.
