Terms & Conditions

Terms and Conditions (06.12.2016)

We’ve tried to keep our Terms and Conditions as clear as possible, and give you all the information we can (but not too much) about your online transactions so that you completely understand the whole process, from order to delivery and beyond. It’s really important to us that your online shopping experience meets expectations, so please spend a few minutes and read on. You’ll need to accept our T’s & C’s every time you make a purchase – they might change from time to time, so do check the date at the top of the page.

Please note that different terms (including prices, charges for services, availability, delivery times and returns policies) may apply to purchases made in our store.

Free Gifts & Services (Promotions)

From time to time we may offer additional benefits to buying from us. This may be a free gift with your purchase, a value-added service (like installation, extended warranties etc.) or special pricing subject to an approved quotation or survey.

All promotions are offered at our sole discretion and subject to availability. We reserve the right to terminate the promotion at any time without prior notification, or supply an equivalent item/service of equal value should the advertised item/service become unavailable.

Free Gifts

When we offer a free gift with your purchase we may require some additional information from you, for example; your choice of colour or size (the requirements will be noted on the sales page of the main product). Please add a note to the checkout with your preference. If you do not provide any information we may contact you to confirm, or send a variant at random. Your free gift may arrive separately to your purchased product, but no later than 7 days from your first delivery.

Free gifts are excluded from SuperPack™ (Manufacturer Warranties apply) and are subject to our standard T&C's and returns policy. Please continue reading below for more info.

Free Services are offered on a best endeavor basis and are not legally guaranteed. Value added services offered as part of our SuperPack™ are subject to their own terms and conditions, please click here for more information.

Services provided by a 3rd party will be subject to their own T&C's, please contact the relevant vendor for full details.

Our contract after you have ordered

Firstly, don’t panic if you make any mistakes during your order, you can correct any input errors right up until you confirm payment. Once you’re happy everything is correct and you’ve submitted an order you’ll be given an Order Reference Number and details of the products (and/or services) you have ordered. We will then send an ‘Order Confirmation’ email once your order has been accepted. This email confirms receipt of your order, your order items and how your products will be delivered to you. If we have to cancel all or part of your order for any reason, we will email you to let you know.

Sometimes we have to hold our hands up and admit we have made a mistake by unintentionally publishing inaccurate information on the site (e.g. the price, description or availability of a product you have ordered). In this instance we may have to cancel your order at any time up to the point we send you the product(s), even if you have received your Order Confirmation email, and you will receive a full refund of any charges already paid.

Prices and payments 

As you would expect all our prices are in UK pounds. The total cost of your order will be the price of the products you order, the delivery charge (if any), plus any additional services you choose e.g. premium delivery or installation. You’ll see all these in your Shopping Basket before you submit an order. Payment is deducted once an order is submitted.

When deciding whether to accept your order we may use certain information about you, including any received from our accredited identity verification partner. For example, we may pass on your details for them to check against certain public and private databases. This will help to protect you and us from fraudulent activities.

Delivery and installation services

You’ll find all the finer details about our delivery, installation and recycling services in the Delivery & WEEE Recycling sections.

Delivery

Small items such as cables, accessories, headphones and so on are usually delivered by courier or by post. Larger items such as speakers, hi-fi, equipment racks and so on are delivered by courier only. We offer free next working day delivery on all orders over £50 to UK Mainland only. Delivery times for remote areas & international orders will vary, a delivery estimate will be shown during checkout. Please note that overseas customers are not able to claim VAT refunds on deliveries to a UK address.

A courier delivery lets you track your order using the information from your confirmation email. If your item is being delivered by Royal Mail you will be unable to track delivery but you should expect it within 3 days.

We will notify you of the delivery method we are going to use when we send you the order confirmation email. If you buy a number of items it is possible that you’ll receive your goods separately.

Missing, damaged or incorrect orders

We do everything we can to ensure your order arrives at your door complete and in pristine condition. If you don’t receive all of your products at once, you can check that they have been dispatched using our tracking facility detailed in the confirmation email. In the unlikely event that the product is damaged or faulty, please contact us via telephone on 01327 301006, or use our self-service "Returns" page to request an RMA.

Returns/cancellations and after sales policy

If for whatever reason you change your mind and would like to return your order after delivery, we’re happy to refund or exchange your purchase as long as it’s unopened and in its original packaging. This option is available for 14 days after delivery.

Following the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, we will accept items back even if you have opened the goods to inspect them. You are entitled to a refund as long as you return your goods within 14 days from the day after delivery. The goods must be in an ‘as new’ condition and returned in the original, undamaged packaging, along with any accessories and free gifts received with it. The product must not have been used or installed or have had any data inputted. Whilst the goods are in your possession you must take reasonable care of them and not use them.

There are three ways to refund/cancel your purchase:

  • You can return the product in person to our store with your receipt, bringing the card you paid with so we can credit it
  • By using our self-service "Returns" page to request an RMA.
  • By phoning us on 01327 301006 with your order reference number and delivery details to arrange an RMA

If you are returning your goods via courier/postal service, it is your responsibility to pay for any return shipping charges. Goods must be received in as-new and resalable condition (this includes packaging). Any damage caused in transit will be your responsibility and may affect the viability of your return. We will contact you if there is a problem with the goods received.

We will then give you a full refund for the cost of the product plus the delivery charge paid. However, we do have the right to retain any charge paid for services which have already begun or been completed. Refunds can take up to 10 working days to be credited to your payment method.

We cannot refund/cancel your purchase:

  • If you return your product to our store without proof of purchase or suitable identification so we may locate your purchase on our system
  • The item is not in “as new” unused condition complete with all original undamaged packaging, accessories and any free gifts you may have received.
  • There is a contract for services with the product and you have started using the services
  • The seal has been broken on any consumable product / any consumable product has been partially used.
  • The goods were a special order to your specification

We may offer you a partial refund if the above conditions are not met. However, this will be at our sole discretion.

Faulty goods

It’s bad enough that your product develops a fault, so we try to make our returns or repair service as painless as possible.

You always have the option of an exchange or refund if the fault occurs within 14 days of delivery. Should a fault occur within 14 days of delivery we will cover the cost of collecting and replacing/refunding the faulty product. For a refund or exchange, the product must be in otherwise ''as new'' condition, complete with any accessories and free gifts offered and where applicable, with the original box and packaging.

If the fault occurs after 14 days of delivery, but within the warranty period, we will offer you a prompt repair service*. It is your responsibility to cover the cost of returning the product to us.  Once the repair has been completed, we will cover the cost of returning it to you. In all cases we reserve the right to inspect the product to verify the fault.

You can either return the product to our store, use our self-service "Returns" page, or phone After Sales on 01327 301006 to arrange an RMA. After Sales is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, and from 9am to 1pm on Saturdays. Replacement goods are sent by standard delivery. If a fault occurs while you are abroad, please contact us to discuss how we can assist.

We do not cover faults caused by accident, neglect, misuse or normal wear and tear.
