1.2 When you use the Website, we may gather information about you and your visit to the Website. Information about this can be found in our cookies and data protection policies. Those documents together with these terms and conditions form the contract between us (contract).
1.3 You may only buy goods from our Website for your personal use and not for onward sale or other business reasons.
1.4 The information on the Website is in English, all communications shall be in English and the Website is designed to comply with English law.

2 Ordering goods from us
2.1 The following explains the process you will go through to place an order and how the contract for the sale of goods will be formed.
Step 1 – Choosing your goods
You can select goods for purchase by clicking on the items you are interested in and then clicking on “Add to Cart”.
Step 2 – Customer registration
You will then be asked if you are a new or returning customer. To register you will be asked for your contact details and to create a password. We will then store that information so if you place further orders, you will not need to re-enter all your details and you will be remembered as a returning customer. Returning customers will be asked for a password and email address to login, each time an order is placed.
Step 3 – Reviewing your Cart
You can review the products added to your Cart and change the contents. You can also enter a discount code. Entering a valid discount code and clicking “Apply” will update the total. You will also enter your contact details and billing and delivery addresses on this page. At this stage, you will be asked whether you agree to these terms and conditions.
Please check all details very carefully and correct any mistakes or change the goods which you want to order.
Step 4 – Going to Checkout
Once you have finished shopping, you can proceed by clicking on “Enter Payment Details”.
Step 5 – Payment Information
You will be asked to choose a payment method and then will be taken to the appropriate page depending on how you wish to pay. Please enter all payment details correctly and check the information carefully before placing your order. Once you click on “Confirm Payment”, your order will be placed and payment will be taken.
Step 6 – Order Confirmation
Once we have confirmation that payment is authorised, a screen will appear, thanking you for your order. We will send to you an order acknowledgement email detailing the goods you have ordered. Print a copy of the order acknowledgement email and keep it for your records. This acknowledgement does not, however, mean that your order has been accepted.
2.2 We may contact you to say that we do not accept your order. This is typically for the following reasons:
2.2.1 the goods are unavailable;
2.2.2 we cannot authorise your payment;
2.2.3 you have ordered too many goods; and/or
2.2.4 there has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the goods.
2.3 We will only accept your order when we email you to confirm this (Dispatch Confirmation/Tracking). At this point a legally binding contract will be in place between you and us, and we will dispatch the goods to you.

8.4 It is your responsibility to ensure that the goods are fitted to your vehicle in the correct way. We strongly recommend that you use a reputable vehicle garage business to fit the goods to your vehicle.
9 Faulty, incorrect, missing or damaged goods
9.1 Nothing in this contract affects your legal rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 or other rights in law which you may have (statutory rights).
9.2 The goods usually come with a manufacturer’s warranty. The scope and duration of the warranty varies from product to product and will usually cover manufacturing defects but not damage caused by misuse, alteration, or general wear and tear. You should refer to the terms of the warranty supplied with the goods. You may contact us in the first instance and we may inspect the goods and/or may be able to deal with your query through a phone call or email. You should not make any further use of goods where you discover a defect as this may affect your rights under the manufacturer’s warranty. You should also complete any warranty card details to claim under a manufacturer’s warranty and provide a copy of your receipt together with a note detailing the problem and the reason for the return.
9.3 You should inspect the goods when you receive them for defects or damage. Items delivered by courier which are clearly damaged on delivery must be signed for as such or refused and returned to us.
Please note: Goods must be inspected on arrival, and claims must be made within 7 days of delivery.
9.4 Where goods have been damaged in transit, please let us know as soon as possible. All such damaged goods should be returned to us, should be in their original packaging (even if damaged) and must not be used or fitted to any vehicle.
9.5 If we have dispatched an incorrect item and you wish to exchange it, please let us know and we will exchange it for the correct item and pay agreed costs of returning the item.
9.6 Non-delivery of an order should be reported to us as soon as possible so that we can try and remedy the situation without undue delay. Please let us know if you have not received your order within 7 working days of the date of dispatch so that we can start investigating as soon as possible. Dispatch is confirmed by e-mail. If an item is lost in transit, we may not dispatch a replacement immediately. Re-sent or replacement items will be dispatched at our discretion or subject to availability, once all tracking and investigative avenues have been exhausted.
9.7 Any refund will also include delivery charges. If we do not find any fault or defect then your cancellation and refund rights are limited to those set out also in Clauses 3 and 4 above, though this does not affect your statutory rights.
9.8 You must take good care of the goods while in your possession. If you fail to do so and the value of the goods reduces as a result of how you handle the goods before returning them to us and where you have caused the damage as opposed to that damage being caused in delivery, then we reserve our right to withhold that amount which may otherwise have been due to you.

10.1 Nothing in this contract or elsewhere will exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or any liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or fraud, or liability which we are responsible for in relation to consumer protection rights, or for any other matters which it would be illegal for us to exclude. Your statutory rights are not affected.
10.2 To the extent that we are liable to you in respect of breach of contract, for negligence or for any other legal liability in relation to the goods or this contract or otherwise, our total liability to you will be limited to the price of the goods paid by you for those goods which are the subject of the liability, and any reasonable losses which are foreseeable as a direct consequence of us breaking our contract with you.
10.3 Unless we explicitly state elsewhere, we shall not be responsible for any indirect or special losses which happen as a side effect or consequence of any main loss or damage or for anything which we or you could not reasonably anticipate.

11.1 We will try to resolve any disputes with you quickly and efficiently.
11.2 If you are unhappy with the goods, our service to you or any other matter, please contact us as soon as possible.

12.1 We will not be in any way responsible to you for a failure to sell goods which you wish to buy or otherwise for a failure to comply with our obligations or any costs or liabilities you incur as a result of any circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including but not limited to if we are affected by matters beyond our reasonable control, by way of example only flood, fire, trade dispute, lack of third party materials or services.
12.2 The contract between us is binding and our obligations are owed to you, our named customer only. We may transfer or assign our rights and obligations under the contract or appoint third parties to assist us at any time provided that this will not reduce our obligations to you.

12.4 If either of us does not at any time act on any rights we have, it will not affect the rights of either of us to enforce any rights at a later stage. If either of us chooses not to rely on a right which we have, it will not affect any other rights which either of us has.
12.5 If this contract is ended it will not affect our right to receive any money which you owe to us under this contract.
12.6 This contract is subject to English law and we each agree that any dispute arising under or connected to it will be decided by the English courts. If you are a consumer in an overseas jurisdiction, including Scotland or Northern Ireland, this will not affect your rights to bring a claim in your local courts or otherwise affect any statutory or other local law protections which you have.
12.7 No changes to the contract will bind us unless we agree to them in writing. Where you have already placed an order which we have accepted, the contract will remain subject to the version of our terms and conditions which were in place at the time at which you placed the order.
12.8 Nothing in these terms and conditions seeks to exclude or limit any rights available under applicable law which cannot be excluded or limited. This means that these terms and conditions will not change any rights which the law grants to you which that law does not allow us to change or limit.
12.9 A person who is not party to this contract shall have no right under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any term of it, which means that only we and you have rights under it. This does not affect any right or remedy of any person which exists or is available otherwise than under that Act.
12.10 The contract is the entire agreement and understanding between us and all other statements and terms whether written or verbal are excluded to the fullest extent that the law permits.
12.11 We are committed to trying to achieve your complete satisfaction as our customer. If you have any complaints please contact or write to the address above.
