5. Accuracy of Content and Information on this website
We have taken care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular to ensure that prices quoted are correct at the time of publishing and that all goods have been fairly described. However, orders will only be accepted if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or their prices as advertised on this website. Any weights, dimensions and capacities given about the goods are approximate only.
All product specifications, images and other information published on our website have either been made accessible by suppliers, manufacturer’s, publications, publicists, or been gathered from public-domain sources. Our intention is that all information on the website should be as accurate and up to date as possible. However, we cannot guarantee the reliability or the accuracy of the information contained within its pages. All the actions taken by the user of the website are the responsibility of the individual.
6. Description of Goods
The majority of the products, parts and accessories we sell are of a technical nature and it is not practical to publish detailed specifications of all the products. All images, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising on our site are for the sole purpose of giving an approximate description of the goods. Full detailed specifications may be available from the manufacturer’s brochures or their website. All parts and accessories supplied are subject to upgrades, substitution, obsolescence or other changes at the manufacturer’s discretion. We will supply the product(s) as supplied to us by the manufacturer.
7. Availability of Goods
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability and maybe withdrawn at any time. If the Goods you have ordered are not immediately available from stock, we will contact you by e-mail or phone (if you have given us details) and advise you of an approximate availability date. You will have the option either to wait until the item is available from stock or to cancel your order. If we do not supply the goods for any reason we will not charge you for these and we will refund any money already paid for them. However, we will not be responsible for compensating you for any other losses you may suffer through our non supply or delay in supplying the goods.
8. Ordering Errors
You are able to correct errors on your order up to the point on which you click on “submit” during the ordering process.
The prices payable for goods that you order are as set out in our website. All prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rates and are correct at the time of entering information.
Wherever it is not possible to accept your order to purchase goods of the specification and description at the price indicated, we will advise you by email, offer to sell you the goods of the specification and description at the price stated in the email and will state the period for which the offer or the price remains valid.
10. Pricing Errors
In the event an item is listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error, an error in pricing information from our suppliers, taxes, duty changes or malicious activity by a third party, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders listed at the incorrect price whether or not the order has been confirmed. If your charge card has already been charged and we subsequently cancel your order, we will immediately issue a credit to your charge card account in the value of the incorrect price (including delivery charges).
11. Payment Terms
We will charge your card account for payment upon receipt of your order. Accurate card details are the responsibility of the card holder. We accept no liability for any card holder banking charges or any other card related charges that maybe incurred. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the goods from your account then we can cancel your order and or suspend any further deliveries to you. This does not affect any other rights we may have.
12. Payment Method
On the order you must provide us with the exact billing address and telephone number that your charge card bank has on file for you. Incorrect information will cause a delay in processing your order. Your order will only be processed once authorization of your charge card has been properly received. You may also pay by PayPal.

For delays by our suppliers of more than 14 days, you will have the right to cancel the order and we will refund any money paid by you for the goods, unless alternative dates have been mutually agreed and confirmed by both parties.
We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. Please be precise about where you would like the goods left if you are out when we deliver. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions (unless this is caused by our negligence).
