All deliveries must be signed for by a person who is over the age of 18. If we cannot deliver to you because there is no one available to sign for the goods we will ask you to rearrange delivery but we may need to make a charge for re- delivery. If no one is available to accept re-delivery we may cancel your order, deduct the delivery charges and refund the balance of your money.

Price

The price payable for the goods sold shall be that set out on our website at the time you place your order.

Any typographical or clerical omission in any sales literature, quotation, price list, invoice or other document or information issued by us shall be subject to correction without liability on our part.

We reserve the right to make such alterations to the prices displayed on our website and the availability of goods as we think fit and without giving you notice.

Unless we otherwise agree in writing all prices shall be deemed to be exclusive of Value Added Tax. Our VAT number is GB135596490.

Delivery charges are not included in the price of the goods and are payable by you. Details of the price that you will pay for delivery will be clearly visible on our website.

All prices shown on this website are web prices ONLY and may be different to those prices in our shop or listed on separate price lists. 

Payment

You must pay in full at the time you place your order with us.

If for any reason you do not make payment when you place your order then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to us, we shall be entitled to at our option:

Cancel your order or suspend any further deliveries to you and or;

Charge interest to you at the rate of 8% above the Royal Bank of Scotland’s base rate on any money you owe us; such interest is to accrue on a day to day basis from the date we deliver the goods until receipt by us of the full amount owed; and be indemnified by you against all costs and expenses (including legal costs and expenses) incurred by us in recovering sums due from you or in exercising our rights.

To ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent, we use 3D Secure security methods at time of payment.

Quantity Estimates

Subject to prior agreement in writing, we will not provide any on-site services for you. Any estimate of the quantity of Goods required by you prepared by us is for guidance only and will be based on information provided by you to us. Any such estimate does not constitute an offer capable of acceptance and we accept no liability for the accuracy thereof. When providing an estimate, we do not include any allowance for additional materials, for wastage or installation and you must check the estimate prior to ordering from us. If the estimate is inaccurate or the form of services or the terms of engagement under which the estimate is provided change in any manner, then we reserve the right to vary or amend the estimate as we see fit. 

Delivery

Delivery dates or times mentioned on our website and product delivery information or acknowledgement of order or elsewhere are estimates made in good faith and not of contractual effect and we shall not be liable to you for any failure to deliver on any particular date or dates, or at any particular time, nor shall time be made of the essence by you giving us notice.

Delivery will occur when you take possession of the goods or when the goods are ready for unloading at the delivery address.

Where we, or our agents, deliver to site it is on the understanding that there is a suitable road to the point on the site where delivery is requested. If no such road exists delivery will be made to the nearest point to which, in the opinion of the driver, the vehicle can safely proceed and unload. Deliveries are to the kerbside only. Except for use of a vehicle mounted crane, you will provide all necessary labour and equipment required to unload materials promptly and will indemnify us against any cost, claim, loss or damage arising from unloading and or delivery save insofar as such claims, costs, losses or expenses relate to liability for death or personal injury. Due to insurance, we are unable to enter on to private property.

If you keep our delivery vehicle waiting for an unreasonable period of time or if we are obliged to return without affecting delivery a justifiable additional charge may be made that reflects the additional cost to us.

If you refuse or fail to take delivery of goods tendered in accordance with your order or we are unable to deliver the goods because you have not provided appropriate instructions, you shall pay us any additional costs or carriage incurred by us.

All deliveries must be received and signed for by a person over the age of 18. If no-one is available to take the delivery, we will leave details at the address to rearrange delivery. We may need to make an additional handling charge for redelivery. Should no-one be available to take the redelivery we may cancel the order and refund your money, excluding any delivery charges.

All delivery times are provided in good faith but are estimates only. ABC Depot may not be held liable for any failure to deliver by a stated time or date or any consequential loss resulting from late deliveries. 

Storage

Where we have notified you that the Goods are ready for delivery, you shall take delivery or arrange for storage. If you do not “as arranged” take delivery or arrange for storage within 7 days of notification, we shall be entitled to invoice and be paid for the Goods as though the Goods had been duly delivered in accordance with these instructions and we may arrange storage either at our own premises or elsewhere on your behalf and all charges for storage, insurance and demurrage shall be payable by you. 

Risk

The risk in the goods shall pass to you upon delivery and you will then be responsible for them. 

Faulty Goods

You shall inspect the goods upon delivery. If the goods are faulty or they have been damaged during delivery you must notify us within 7 working days of delivery.

If the goods you purchase are faulty, we may offer a repair, exchange or refund as appropriate in accordance with your statutory and consumer rights. Please contact us at returns@abcdepot.co.uk or telephone us on 020 8371 7474 to arrange return of faulty goods at our expense.

If a refund, repair or exchange is refused we reserve the right to charge you any collection costs.

Nothing in this clause is intended to affect your statutory rights or your rights as a consumer.

If any goods develop a fault after 28 days following delivery and where the manufacturer has provided a helpline, repair service or warranty, you should contact the manufacturer direct. We will have no obligation to provide any refund or assistance after the 28 days following delivery. 

Delivery Discrepancies
