All prices are clearly stated throughout the site, we will monitor and adjust prices regularly to ensure that we always offer the best possible value for money. We therefore reserve the right to change any advertised price before you place an order.
We are under a legal duty as per the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 to supply goods that are in conformity with our contract with you. All products and services are subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time. If your order cannot be fulfilled you will be offered an alternative or given a full refund.
Delivery is free to mainland UK. The checkout will calculate the surcharge automatically for deliveries over water which attract a surcharge from carriers.
Payment can be made by any major credit or debit card listed at the bottom of each screen using the internationally recognised and supported Paypal secure payment system. Payment will be debited from your account when you order, i.e. before the despatch of your purchase. We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is within our power to do so, to keep the details of your order secure but, in the absence of negligence on our part, we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from our site. We are signed up to the Verified by Visa and Mastercard SecureCode schemes to ensure that your card details are kept secure and you may be transferred to your card issuers website to verify your details.

We will not use your data for any form of promotional mailing apart from customer reviews and product questionnaires unless you have subscribed to our newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any stage.
We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act).
We collect information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process your order and second, to provide you with the best possible service.

Returns and refunds
For consumer purchases you have fourteen days after the receipt of the goods during which time you can cancel your purchase by contacting us in writing or by telephone and then return the goods to us as soon as you can (but it does not have to be sent within the initial fourteen day period) for a refund.
If you are returning goods within the first fourteen days, and the goods are not faulty, then you will have to return the goods to us at our offices at your own expense. We can collect from you but carriers do charge a surcharge for third party collections and this will therefore be more expensive than if we delivered the item to you. For example it costs us on average £12 plus VAT to collect a domestic dehumidifier.
We must receive the goods back within 14 days of you telling us that you wish to return the goods and cancel your contract with us.
Under the Distance Selling Regulations you have a duty to take reasonable care of the goods whilst they are in your possession and we would ask that the goods are returned with their original packaging. Please take reasonable care that the goods do not get damaged in transit and that we receive the goods. If this care is not taken and the goods are damaged then we reserve the right to claim against the refund due to you for this breach of your statutory duty.
If the goods have been damaged in transit by your carrier then we will sign for them damaged so that you will then be able to claim against your carrier for this damage on their insurance.
We recommend packing the goods correctly to minimise the risk of any damage in transit.
This cancellation policy does not affect your legal rights for example, if goods are faulty or mis-described.
Returns and refunds - Business customers
For business customers we do not allow the return of items over 20Kgs because of the high risk of damage in transit. For all other items the fourteen day return period and terms remain the same as we have laid out for consumers. This does not apply to faulty goods.
Damage in Transit
You have a reasonable time under law to examine the goods to see if they are in good condition. But please if you spot any sign of damage to the outer packaging then please clearly sign for the goods as DAMAGED. If you fail to do so we will not be able to claim for the damage against the carrier. No other form of words such as 'unchecked' or 'unexamined' are acceptable, it must be DAMAGED if their is the slightest sign of a problem. This helps us to reduce our costs and to keep our prices low.
For business customers we reserve the right to reject claims where the goods we not signed for damaged.
If there is a problem with the goods, please contact us. We will deal with the matter in accordance with your legal rights.
