We believe that you have a right to be given clear and unmistakable pricing information. We display both, VAT exlusive and inclusive prices, where possible. Our shipping charges are clearly displayed on every page and shown in the shopping cart the moment a product is placed in it.
We will always attempt to describe products in plain English in a condensed format to help you choose and compare products easily. On top of this we display, wherever possible, all technical data sheets, manuals and certifications in additional tabs to allow you to fully research the products displayed by us. Our sales staff are trained to advise you on technical issues and are happy to assist you over the phone or by email. We strive to reply within one working day. For more complex products, we have introduced interactive technical helpguides, which will break down the complex purchasing decisions into easy chunks and will guide you through the purchasing process.
No customer wants to be passed around from one telephone operator to the next. Our sales staff are trained to deal with all aspects of customer service. They will advise about products, take orders, deal with any complaints without passing you on to other staff members. Should a staff member not know the answer to your question, they will find out for you and will ring you back. They can also speak with the manufacturer on your behalf and let you know their answers. Should you wish to speak to a manager, they will of course transfer you to the relevant manager to deal with your query. All our staff have their own telephone numbers, so that you can always ring them directly if you want to follow up any discussion.
We would like to understand what you think of us and we want other customers to benefit from the feedback you give. Trustpilot, the third-party independent customer feedback company, will send you an email once you have received our goods and ask for your feedback. This feedback, which we cannot influence, is displayed both on our website as well as on Trustpilot's website to be seen by other prospective customers. We also invite product feedback six weeks after you received your goods so you can tell us how our products performed. Your feedback is then published next to the relevant product for other people to see.
If you change your mind, we offer twice the legal requirement for the returns period without quibbling. See also our Returns Policy.
We would ask you to please check the condition of your package before signing for the receipt of the goods. If you see damage on the outer packaging, this must be noted on your copy of the delivery note and on the copy for the carrier. You can refuse damaged parcels without signing for these.
If you find the transport damage after the carrier has left, please inform us instantly. If the claim is made on the same day as the delivery, we will still accept liability. Failure to note damage might affect replacement or refund from us for items damaged in transit.
Discrepancies of quantities or product codes need to be reported to us within 5 working days from delivery. We might be unable to accept liability for any missing items if incorrect quantities are not highlighted within this period.
We offer a range of payment options including Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard, Maestro, Visa electron, American Express, PayPal and Proforma.
We never store your payment card data on our own servers. All our web based credit/debit card transactions are handled by Stripe, the market leader in secure online transactions. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and has been awarded the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. Stripe forces HTTPS for all services using TLS (SSL) and card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256, with keys stored on separate servers.
Shoppers are also protected from fraudulent use of their card in a "cardholder not present" environment by their card issuers. The card issuer provides the right for a shopper to dispute a transaction if the goods/services did not arrive or if the card was used fraudulently.
Our payments already comply with Strong Customer Authentication, part of the 2019 second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) regulations in Europe. We continually monitor changes in the payment industry to ensure we are doing everything we can to safeguard our customer's payment data. This includes our GDPR and data protection compliance.
