Nature of the goods

The Consumer Rights Act 2015 gives you certain legal rights (also known as ‘statutory rights’), for example, the goods are of satisfactory quality; are fit for purpose and match the description.

We must provide you with goods that comply with your legal rights.

We will take reasonable steps to display as accurately as possible the colours, appearance and other detailing of our goods (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 goods (or its packaging). The goods (and their packaging) may vary slightly from those images.

Any information on the website and in our catalogues and other media regarding sizing, weights, capacities, specifications, dimensions and measurements of goods is included as a guide only. If you are concerned about the precise size, weight, capacity, specifications, dimensions or measurements of any goods you require, we recommend that you contact us prior to placing an order and/or purchasing goods.

Our ability to supply the goods is subject to us holding them in stock or being able to obtain them. If on receipt of your order, the goods you have ordered are not available either in stock or by special order we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible and if we are unable to obtain them in an agreed time we will refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card or debit card for the goods.

Whilst we try to maintain continuity of supply in relation to our product lines, we reserve the right to discontinue any goods at any time and we shall be under no obligation to supply you with discontinued goods in the future. If you have already placed your order, we will notify you as soon as reasonably possible that the goods are not available and offer you an alternative product if one is available or a full refund.

In the case of certain goods, variations may arise in the finish of those goods where they originate from different factory batches.  We shall not be liable for any loss caused by such variation where such variation does not diminish the quality of the goods and where goods bought for a specific job or purpose are not purchased at the same time.

We take every precaution in the preparation of our catalogues, technical circulars, price lists and other literature, but these documents are for your general guidance only and do not form part of the contract (in the absence of fraud on our part). If you require advice in relation to the goods, a specific request for advice should be made.
