DELIVERY AND COLLECTION CHARGES
You must pay us any agreed charges for delivery or collection of goods. If we quote carriage charges, these only cover the time needed to load or unload our vehicle at the address you have specified. You must pay extra for any further time you cause us to spend, including if we try to follow your instructions for delivering or collecting the goods but cannot do so because of your acts or failure to do something. Stated delivery charges cover the UK mainland. An additional charge will be made for delivery to other areas. Deliveries must be signed for by the recipient. Failure to do so may result in failed delivery and a subsequent “return to sender” process. Should re-delivery be required as a result of no signature, you may be charged for subsequent delivery requirements.

Damaged goods must be signed damaged upon delivery or we cannot refund your purchase. Always check your delivery CAREFULLY for external damage before signing the acceptance note. After 7 days all tools will be repaired under the manufacturers warranty. After 7 days any carriage charges become the responsibility of the purchaser to get the tool to us or manufacturer.
