Terms & Conditions
These Terms and Conditions apply to your use of the ElekDirect website and every order placed with ElekDirect
- 1. Our contract with you
When you place an order, you are offering to buy the product(s) from us and we will send you an order acknowledgement. However, your offer shall only be accepted by us once we place the product you have ordered onto the delivery van and only then shall a legally binding contract be formed between us. Until then we can decline to supply the goods – we will try to ensure that this never happens but we do however, reserve the right not to fulfil your order for any reason if, for example, we have made an error on the price or similar. In the event of these circumstances we will refund you any price you’ve paid to us.
- 2. Availability
We display our availability on the website and also display when you can have it delivered. We deliver hundred of products a week and so we have to rely on a computer system for our stock control. Computers are better than people at this stuff on a big scale but even they occasionally get it wrong. If we get this wrong we will tell you as soon as we know and we will try to sort it out for you.
- 3. Website information
We try to specify accurate dimensions for every product listed on our website. However, please be aware that the product dimensions do not include any protruding features such as controls and handles etc and product dimensions represent the casing of the product only. Whilst we try to be as accurate as possible, all sizes, weights and measurements quoted on the website are approximate only. Similarly, we’ve made every effort to display all product colours accurately. However we can’t guarantee that the image displayed on your monitor will accurately reflect the true colour of the product delivered to you. Please also be aware that colours may differ between manufacturers. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that product specifications are correct on the website, due to continual product development through research & design, specifications may change without notice.
You acknowledge and agree that:
a) The copyright in the photos, videos, data and text used on our website belongs to us or our suppliers and the general look and feel and format of our website belongs to us. You are permitted to use this material only as expressly authorised by us or our suppliers.
b) We are entitled to change or amend our website without giving you notice (but the terms and conditions applicable when you placed your order will continue to apply to those products).
- 4. Prices
All the prices we display include VAT and exclude delivery unless stated specifically on the website.
- 5. Payment
You won’t be surprised to learn that you can pay with more or less any type of credit/debit card. This includes Maestro, Delta, MasterCard, or Visa card and we do all we can to ensure your details are secure. We also accept PayPal on all online orders, and this doesn’t cost you any extra. If there are any problems with receiving payment we’ll let you know.
- 6. Delivery
We deliver to every UK postcode (excluding Scottish Highlands, Scottish Islands, Channel Islands, Scilly Isles, the Isle of Man, the Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland) normally through our sister company, Expert Logistics Limited. Expert has a phenomenal delivery success rate that we are very proud of and a will to deliver that we cannot fault. However, from time to time we may also need to use other delivery agents.
The products we sell are often big and heavy things to lift, so there will be certain occasions when they may be unable to get it into your property. Lots of steps, narrow corridors, radiators and restricted parking are all things that may hinder their ability to deliver. In these situations they may be able to offer delivery to the nearest point possible i.e. your garage, so you can make arrangements to get the product in. Occasionally something will happen out of our control that closes roads, like floods snow or other adverse weather conditions or things like, sporting events which result in closed roads. In this event we’ll block any affected dates out of the checkout delivery calendar. If you’ve already selected your delivery date and you’re affected, we’ll contact you as soon as possible to arrange alternative delivery options. We will do what we can, but can’t be held liable if we can’t fulfil delivery due to reasons beyond our control.
- 7. Cancellation
If you’re not happy with your product or simply change your mind you can return it within 14 days of delivery and receive a refund. We’re happy for you to unpack the appliance and inspect it properly as you would had you bought the item from a shop. However, the product must be unused. Your refund will be made within 14 days of collection of the appliance.
To cancel a product and request collection please call 01204 531 234. We’ll collect your product within a reasonable time from when you cancel and on a day that suits you.
Our 14 day cancellation policy also applies to any additional services you may have ordered. If you have ordered any additional services for a product then these will be automatically be cancelled when the order for that product is cancelled, unless the service has already been performed. If you order an additional service and expressly choose for that service to be carried out within 14 days of order (by nominating your desired day of delivery or otherwise), then you are deemed to have waived your cancellation rights and we shall not be under any obligation to refund any charges paid for any such additional services.
