If your billing address and delivery address differ, we will need to validate the information provided with our Identity Verification partner. In addition we will require a faxed or e-mailed copy of a utility bill to verify invoice address details. This will help to protect you and us against fraudulent transactions.All prices and products quoted are subject to alteration or withdrawal without notice from time to time. All Prices include VAT and standard UK mainland delivery unless otherwise stated. VAT is charged at the point where a transaction or service is completed. Any variation in the VAT rate will be re-calculated at the tax point.
- Delivery is only available to mainland UK.
- We offer a standard delivery on all products based on a doorstep or garage drop-off delivery service. (dependant on clear access) This service is not ideal for larger items such as Range Cookers, American Fridge Freezers or bulk deliveries where would recommend our premium delivery service as an alternative.
- Our premium delivery service will aim to bring the items into the property to a ground floor room of your choice, (dependant on clear access) unpack them and check them over. This service is highly recommended for larger appliances which can be very awkward to move due to both size and weight.
- We also offer an “express delivery option” this will be delivered by a pallet service on the next working day if ordered by 2pm however this is a kerbside delivery only and they will NOT take goods into the property or remove an old appliance.
- Once the goods have been checked to your satisfaction we require you to sign a delivery note.
- We can take away your old appliance for a small charge and recycle it for you. All we ask is that it’s disconnected all from water, electrical gas supplies and outside the property when we arrive. If however you choose to upgrade to our premium delivery service we can remove the old appliance from inside the property as long as it’s disconnected and moved out of position, clean and free of water.
- For a small charge we can also take away your packaging and responsibly recycle it on your behalf.
- Deliveries are booked on the condition that there is reasonable access for the safe and prompt delivery of the product. Any special requirements should be notified to us when arranging delivery.
- Unless otherwise stated the delivery service does not include installation or connection of the product.
- We endeavour to meet all delivery bookings but cannot be held responsible for situations beyond our control.
- It is your responsibility to ensure that you have signed for the correct goods and number of items delivered.
- Any delivery issues will be resolved by our customer Services team at the point of delivery.
- We recommend that you organise the fitting of your appliances once they have been delivered and inspected to your satisfaction.
- When purchasing a large appliance such as an American Fridge Freezer or Range Cooker please ensure that you have measured the relevant doorways in your home to make sure that the product will fit through when delivered. Failed deliveries will incur an additional delivery charge if you are not present on the agreed delivery date and the actual cost of distribution will be charged to you.

We are aware of the concerns customers have about entering their card details when carrying out a transaction. We have therefore implemented the following measures to ensure that paying via our Website is as safe as possible:
- All your credit card and personal information is encrypted and held on a secure SSL (Secure Socket Layer) server. This protects data during transit, in particular the credit card information, from being intercepted and misused by hackers.
- We use 128-bit encryption (this technology scrambles the data relating to your account to ensure that your information cannot be read by anyone else) and constantly update our technologies in line with new security measures.
- Any information transmitted to us is encrypted (scrambled) whilst it is sent over the Internet. When it reaches us we then encrypt the content so that only authorised personnel can access it. This makes it very difficult for this data to be intercepted.
- We ask you to enter the CV2 security number from the back of your credit or debit card, which helps to reduce the risk of Internet fraud being carried out.
- You should ensure that the technology you are using is also secure.
