A collection cost may also be incurred for any parts where collection has been arranged but the item(s) are unavailable at the agreed time and place.

Title to the goods shall remain with us until we receive the purchase price in full. Until title to the goods passes to you, the following terms apply:

  1. We have authority to retake, sell or otherwise deal with the goods in question
  2. The customer will store or mark the goods in a manner satisfactory to us, indicating that title to the goods remains with us

Cancellation & Returns

All goods stock returns must be returned to us within 7 working days from the date delivered or collected (as applicable).

We reserve the right to apply a handling charge to cover the administration and delivery charges for all returns. A handling charge may also apply to parts that we have ordered especially for a customer, and for electronic components which have been fitted but not used (although such parts may non-returnable as stated on the invoice).

With regard to electrical and electronic parts, we can only accept returns if the sealed bag in which the goods are stored has not been opened or tampered with in any way. The purpose of the bag is to enable a visual inspection of the goods so you can be certain you have the right item. Once the bag is open we are unable refund the purchase price or re-sell the item.

Where goods are returned but we do not except liability for their return or reject them, we reserve the right to charge for storage.

Warranty policy

Our warranty policy is listed separately.

Vehicle Works

In this context, ‘work’ means work carried out by us on behalf of the customer on motor vehicles or components.

The price quoted is an estimate only of the cost of the work, and is exclusive of VAT.

Payment must be made when the work is collected, except where credit facilities have been granted.

We are entitled to keep the vehicle or component until full payment is made for the price, VAT, interest and any other costs and expenses incurred by us in obtaining payment.

We ask that you inspect the work, and by accepting the vehicle and taking it away, you agree that the work is satisfactory and that we have fully met our obligations.

Liability

We always endeavour to meet our obligations, however in the event that we do not for any reason, we shall be under no liability to the customer for any indirect loss and/or expense (including loss of profit).  With respect to Vehicle Work, our obligation to the customer shall be limited to damages, and under no circumstances shall our liability exceed the price of vehicle work.

This does not affect your statutory rights, nor is it intended to exclude our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or for any other liability which cannot under English law be excluded by law.

Force Majeure

We shall have no liability to the customer for any failure or delay in supply or delivery or for any damage or defect to goods supplied or delivered that is caused by any event or circumstance beyond our reasonable control (including, without limitation, strikes, lockouts and other industrial disputes). In such an event the customer will have no claim against us for loss or damage either direct or consequential which may result.

General

If any provision set out in these Terms and Conditions is found by any court, tribunal or administrative body of competent jurisdiction to be wholly or partly illegal, invalid, void, voidable, unenforceable or unreasonable it shall to the extent of such illegality, invalidity, voidness, voidability, unenforceability or unreasonableness be deemed severable and the remaining provisions of the Terms of Business and the remainder of such provision shall continue in full force and effect.

Any acceptance by us of an order, either written or verbal, is subject to the following conditions: If the customer’s official order contains special printed conditions, it is understood that such conditions are accepted only in so far that they are not a variance with our Terms of Business.
