feel free to ask us about anything you are interested in. It is possible to give a
demonstration of most products although some traveling may need to be
considered.

All quoted prices include VAT – delivery is extra (unless otherwise stated).
Where a product includes delivery, this is to mainland UK only.

On the occasion where a price is listed incorrectly due to a typographical error
or otherwise, we will inform you immediately as to the correct price of the

If a client changes their mind after the product has been installed, the client
will be responsible for any return / re-delivery shipping costs which may occur,
and any additional labour required on site will be subject to a charge of £250

Warranty cover is for a minimum of 1 year. Some manufacturers provide a
longer term – ask for details.

In circumstances where a warranty repair is needed, you may deal with us or
directly with the manufacturers. If you require us to deal with the fault, we
would ask that you send the item back to us. Your goods will then be returned
to you at our expense (UK only).

Goods sent back to us as faulty but found to be fully working will be returned
to you. Carriage charges will be at your expense as well as investigation
charges. If you suspect a fault please call us first.

Goods found to have a fault not covered by warranty (damage or breakage
through misuse, incorrect operation, wear and tear etc) will be returned to you
at your expense, there will also be a charge at a daily rate for the deinstallation and re-installation of the equipment.

chargeable and likely to be charged upfront.

unavailability of raw materials from a natural source of supply, and the party
shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of its obligations.

Severance

If any term or provision of these Terms and Conditions is held invalid, illegal or
unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction such
