2.2 Any services provided by us or on our behalf in connection with your order are governed by the applicable Supply & Install Terms.
3.1 Please see the how to shop section of our Website for information on how to place an order via the Website. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your orders via the Website up until the point at which you submit your order by clicking the "confirm order" (or similar) button on the check out page of our Website. Please carefully check your order at each stage of the order process. Once you have clicked the "confirm order" (or similar) button, you will be obliged to pay for the Products you have ordered via the Website.
3.2 Your order is an offer to purchase from us. When you place an order with us (or otherwise offer to make a purchase from us), you do so in accordance with the terms of our agreement, subject to our acceptance of your order (or offer to make a purchase). If you place an order via our Website (or where we have otherwise stated that we will), we will send you an email acknowledging receipt of your order, together with your order number and details of the Product(s) you have ordered. Please note this email is an acknowledgement and is not an acceptance of your order.

If we do not accept your order (whether in whole or in part) we will refund any monies paid in connection with that order (or that part of the order that we do not accept).
3.5 Our agreement is formed when we accept your order (or offer to make a purchase). In relation to orders via the Website, where Products you have ordered fall within two or more of the Product types identified in clauses 3.3.1, 3.3.2 and 3.3.3, a separate agreement is formed for each Product when we accept your order for that Product. The processing of your payment and acknowledgment of receipt of your order (whether by email, telephone or otherwise) does not constitute legal acceptance of your order.
3.6 You may not cancel your order once it is submitted, unless otherwise agreed with us or where we offer you the facility to do so. This does not affect your rights under clauses 8 and 9.
4.1 You must be 18 or over to purchase Products from us via our Website. Certain Products (for example knives) can only be purchased if you satisfy the legal age requirement for that Product which can be found in the relevant Product description. We are not allowed by law to supply these Products to you if you do not satisfy these age requirements. If you are underage please do not attempt to order or purchase these Products. By ordering and/or purchasing Products you agree that you satisfy the legal age requirements for those Products. We reserve the right not to supply any age restricted Products where we reasonably believe that you are below the relevant legal age for those Products.
4.2 For safety reasons, we reserve the right to restrict sales of gas fittings and appliances to professionally registered plumbers and heating engineers.
4.3 We will take reasonable steps to display as accurately as possible the colours, appearance and other detailing of our Products (and their packaging) in the images that appear on the Website and in our catalogues and other media. However, we do not guarantee that the images, appearance and other detailing that appear on the Website and in our catalogues and other media will exactly reflect the colour, appearance or detailing of the physical Product (or its packaging). Your Products (and their packaging) may vary slightly from those images.
4.4 Natural products may show some colour variation. To the extent permitted by law, we accept no liability associated with such variations.
4.5 Any information on the Website and in our catalogues and other media regarding sizing, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements of Products is included as a guide only. If you are concerned about the precise size, weight, capacity, dimensions or measurements of any Product you require, we recommend that you contact us prior to placing an order and/or purchasing a Product.
4.6 If your order includes Products that are made according to measurements you provide us, please ensure these measurements are correct and accurate as your right of return as set out in clause 8 below will not be available unless the Products are faulty, damaged or incorrectly delivered.
4.7 Where we agree to provide a specifically designed plan as part of or in connection with your order, you will be responsible for checking the accuracy and suitability of the plan and ensuring it meets your requirements before placing an order. Any such plan is, and remains, our property and may not be reproduced in whole or in part without our prior written consent. Any such plan may only be used by you in connection with a quotation or order for Products and/or services from us and/or the provision of Products and/or services by us to you. You are responsible for checking that the details of the plan, and any resulting quotation, are complete, accurate and meet your requirements before committing yourself to an order.
5.1 Unless otherwise stated, prices for Products are inclusive of applicable sales tax (including VAT (or GST in Jersey)). Sales tax will be applied and will be shown on your invoice at the current applicable rate. Sales tax amounts stated may be subject to rounding variances. The exact amount of sales tax will be shown on the sales tax invoice (where provided). This will not affect the total price inclusive of sales tax.
5.2 Prices for Products exclude delivery charges unless expressly stated otherwise. Delivery charges vary depending on the Product(s) you order, the delivery address and the delivery method you select; please see our Delivery Terms for further details. When you place an order via our Website, delivery charges are calculated automatically in your shopping basket depending on your choices and added to your order.
5.3 We may update prices at any time. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the thousands of products we sell may occasionally be mispriced. If this happens then we will not be obliged to supply the Products at the incorrect price or at all. We will (at our discretion) either cancel your order and refund the price you have paid or endeavour to contact you and ask you whether you wish to continue with the order at the correct price. If we are unable to contact you or you do not wish to continue with the order at the correct price, we will cancel your order and refund the price you have paid.
5.4 From time to time we may apply promotional prices to Products, including Website or in-store only prices. These promotional prices will only apply in the context in which the promotion is given and are subject to the terms of that promotion. For example, Website only prices will not be applicable to in-store orders or purchases, and in-store only prices will not be applicable to Website orders or purchases. To take advantage of promotional prices, you must quote the relevant promotion code when you order (where applicable). We may update promotions at any time.
5.5 Prices for commodity goods will be updated regularly, please visit our Website or ask in store for further details.
5.6 Where we provide a quote to you it will be subject to the terms and conditions applicable to that quote.
5.7 All Products are subject to availability. If you order Products which are not available from stock, we will take reasonable steps to contact you to discuss how you wish to proceed. You will have the option to wait until the Products are available from stock, or cancel your order. If the Products are unlikely to be restocked, we will cancel your order for those Products and refund the price you have paid.
6.1 The total cost of your order and/or purchases is the price of the Products and applicable delivery charges.
6.2 We must receive payment in advance before your order and/or purchase can be processed, unless we have agreed otherwise in advance in writing.
6.3 Payment can be made by most major credit or debit cards in accordance with the payment methods section of our Website.
6.4 If you use a credit/debit card to pay for your order, you must use your credit/debit card or a credit/debit card that you are otherwise authorised to use. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks by third parties and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of the card refuses to authorise payment or any other validation checks return adverse results, we will not accept your order and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal.
6.5 We are not responsible for the card issuer or bank charging the cardholder as a result of our processing of the credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.
6.6 You are responsible for all orders placed by your authorised employees.
7.1 If you order Products for delivery then the terms that apply to that delivery will depend upon the Product(s) that you order, the delivery address and the delivery method you select. Unless we specifically agree otherwise, we only deliver to the areas indicated in our Delivery Terms. Depending on your location, some Products may only be available in store and some items may not be available to purchase on our Website.
7.2 You can see a full set of our Delivery Terms on the Website.
7.3 Subject to availability and our Delivery Terms, where we have agreed to deliver the Products, we will use reasonable endeavours to do so on any specified date we agree, or if no date is specified, within 30 days of the date of your order. In the case of unforeseen circumstances beyond our reasonable control (for example, adverse weather conditions, unpredictable delays caused by traffic congestion, road works, diversions or mechanical breakdowns) we may not be able to deliver the Products within these timescales and we will not be liable for any delay or failure to deliver the Products if the delay or failure is wholly or partly caused by such circumstances. In the event that a delivery does not take place, we and you will agree an alternative delivery date.
7.4 You must also do all that you reasonably can to enable the delivery to take place on the given date. If we are unable to deliver the Products as a result of your action or inaction (for example, you are not present at your property), we will need to arrange an alternative delivery date and we reserve the right to charge you a further fee for this.
7.5 For reasons of health and safety and to avoid any property damage, certain Products 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, unless otherwise agreed by us.
7.6 Unless we have agreed otherwise, Products must be signed for on delivery by a person aged 18 or over. Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you specified in your order.
7.7 If you do not receive your Products on the stated delivery date, you must notify us immediately. We recommend that you do not schedule or commence any installation work until after you have received your ordered Products and checked all of them for any defects or missing parts.
7.8 Each Product remains our property until you have paid for it in full or we have provided the Product to you (whichever occurs later), whereupon you will own the Product. On delivery of the Products to you or collection of the Products by you (as the case may be), the Products shall be at your risk and responsibility and you will be responsible for their safekeeping and we will not be responsible for any damage or fault arising from incorrect storage.
7.9 Until ownership of the Products passes from us to you, you shall hold the Products on our behalf and shall store the Products at your own cost separately from all other products in your possession and marked in such a way that they are clearly identified as our property. We may, before ownership of the Products passes to you, require you to deliver up the Products to us and, if you fail to do so, may repossess the Products. You grant us an irrevocable licence to enter, with or without vehicles, any of your premises for the purpose of inspecting or repossessing the Products.
8.1 Please keep your proof of purchase for anything you buy from us. Although you are not obliged to, doing so will ensure we can help you if you need to bring something back.

8.3.2 perishable Products such as plants or turf, or Products which are otherwise liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly, will not be exchanged or refunded unless they are faulty or incorrectly delivered;
8.3.3 you will receive (within 30 days of cancellation) a refund of the price paid in respect of that part of your order that is cancelled (including relevant delivery charges) less any collection or return costs or charges. If you cancel part of an order, we will recalculate any applicable delivery charge for the remaining part of the order and also deduct this from the refund;
