These are the terms and conditions on which we supply products to you, whether these are goods or services.
Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.
In some areas you will have different rights under these terms depending on whether you are a business or consumer. You are a consumer if:
If you are a business customer these terms constitute the entire agreement between us in relation to your purchase. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by or on behalf of us which is not set out in these terms and that you shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in this Agreement.

You can contact us by telephoning our sales team on 01482 881655, or via our contact form, alternatively if it is a technical based query you may contact our technical team by telephone on 01482 678981, or via our contact form or write to them using the address in clause 2.1.
If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
When we use the words “writing” or “written” in these terms, this includes emails.
Our acceptance of your order will take place when we have received payment and we have emailed you a receipt/confirmation of order, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from addresses outside the UK. Please contact us separately about international delivery.
The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.
If we are making the product to measurements you have given us you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct.
If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
We may change the product:
6.1.a to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
6.1.b to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat. These changes will not affect your use of the product.
In addition, as we informed you in the description of the product on our website, we may make changes to these terms or the product, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any products paid for but not received.
The costs of delivery will be as displayed to you on our website.
During the order process we will let you know when we will provide the products to you.
If the products are goods we will deliver them to you (usually within 7 days) and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order.
We will begin the services on the date set out in the order. The estimated completion date for the services is as told to you during the order process.
We will supply the services to you until either the services are completed or the subscription expires (if applicable) or you end the contract as described in clause 8 or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in clause 10.
If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
If you have asked to collect the products from our premises and we have agreed to this, you can collect them from us at any time during our working hours once you have been notified that the products are ready and available for collection. Please note that our agreement to onsite collection from our premises will not usually be given because our site facilities and staffing are not set up to facilitate customer collection.
If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from a local depot.
If you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.
A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us or you (with our prior agreement) collect it from us.
You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full.
We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you, for example, names, address, email contact number, where applicable fault details, and in some cases specific details according to make and model of caravan or motorhome. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
7.10.a deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
7.10.b update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
7.10.c make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 6).
We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product (this includes suspension of either or both goods and services), unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for products while they are suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for a product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 30 days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.
If you do not pay us for the products when you are supposed to (see clause 14.4) and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. We will not suspend the products where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see clause 14.7). We will not charge you for the products during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 14.6).
Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing, when you decide to end the contract and whether you are a consumer or business customer:
(or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed), see clause 12 if you are a consumer and clause 13 if you are a business;
clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods;
If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at 8.2.1 to 8.2.5 below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may have other rights too. The reasons are:
8.2.a we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
8.2.b we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
8.2.c there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
8.2.d we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 30 days; or
8.2.e you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
If you are a consumer then for most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of:
8.4.a bespoke harnesses and bespoke electrical assembly;
8.4.b services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
8.4.c products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
8.4.d any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
If you are a consumer how long you have to change your mind depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
If so you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods, unless your goods are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the last delivery.
Even if we are not at fault and you are not a consumer who has a right to change their mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods is completed when the product is delivered. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you are not a consumer who has changed their mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract doing so.
Call the sales team on 01482 881655 or via our contact form. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
Simply write to us including details of what you bought, when you ordered or received it and your name and address.
If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must post them back to us at Unit 39 Tokenspire Business Park, Beverley, East Yorkshire HU17 0TB. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
We will pay the costs of return:
9.3.1 if the products are faulty or misdescribed;
9.3.2 if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.
In all other circumstances (including where you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described in 9.6.
If you are exercising your right to change your mind:
9.5.a we may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop;
9.5.b the maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind then:
9.6.a if the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. For information about how to return a product to us, see clause 9.2;
9.6.b in all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind.
We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:
10.1.a you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due;
10.1.b you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products, for example, bespoke design information;
10.1.c you display offensive, vindictive, abusive or aggressive behaviour towards our staff;
10.1.d you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or, where agreed by us, collect them from us.
If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 10.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us. You can contact us by telephoning our sales team on 01482 881655, or via our contact form, alternatively if it is a technical based query you may contact our technical team by telephone on 01482 678981, contact form or contact them by writing to us at the address in clause 2.1.
12.1 If you are a consumer we are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the products. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
This is a summary of your key legal rights. These are subject to certain exceptions. For detailed information please visit the Citizens Advice website www.adviceguide.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06.
If your product is goods, for example alarm equipment or control units, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says goods must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. During the expected lifespan of your product your legal rights entitle you to the following:
a) Up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get an immediate refund.
b) Up to six months: if your goods can’t be repaired or replaced, then you’re entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
c) Up to six years: if your goods do not last a reasonable length of time you may be entitled to some money back.
Also see clause 8.3.
If your product is services, for example a paid for repair, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says:
a) You can ask us to repeat or fix a service if it’s not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if we can’t fix it.
b) If you haven’t agreed a price beforehand, what you’re asked to pay must be reasonable.
c) If you haven’t agreed a time beforehand, it must be carried out within a reasonable time.
Also see also clause 8.2.
If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must post them back to us. We will pay the costs of postage. Please call our sales team on 01482 881655 or use our contact form for a return label.
13.1 If you are a business customer we warrant that on delivery, and for a period of 12 months from the date of delivery, unless stated otherwise in the online product description (warranty period), any products which are goods shall:
13.1.a conform in all material respects with their description and any relevant specification;
13.1.b be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship;
13.1.c be of satisfactory quality (within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979); and
13.1.d be fit for any purpose held out by us.
13.2 Subject to clause 13.3, if:
13.2.a you give us notice in writing during the warranty period within a reasonable time of discovery that a product does not comply with the warranty set out in clause 13.1;
13.2.b we are given a reasonable opportunity of examining such product; and
13.2.c you return such product to us at our cost, we shall, at our option, repair or replace the defective product, or refund the price of the defective product in full.
13.3 We will not be liable for a product’s failure to comply with the warranty in clause 13.1 if:
13.3.a you make any further use of such product after giving a notice in accordance with clause 13.2.1;
13.3.b the defect arises because you failed to follow our oral or written instructions as to the storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the product or (if there are none) good trade practice;
13.3.c the defect arises as a result of us following any drawing, design or specification supplied by you;
13.3.d you alter or repair the product without our written consent; or
13.3.e the defect arises as a result of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal working conditions.
13.4 Except as provided in this clause 13, we shall have no liability to you in respect of a product’s failure to comply with the warranty set out in clause 13.1.
13.5 These terms shall apply to any repaired or replacement products supplied by us under clause 13.2.
The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. However, if you are business customer ordering via your dealer website, the product price indicated on the order pages excludes VAT (which will be added to the invoice). We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 14.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
We accept payment with PayPal, Mastercard, Visa Debit, Visa Credit, and Visa Electron. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying:
14.4.a for goods, you must pay for the products in advance of despatch;
14.4.b for services, you must pay for the services in advance of commencement.
If you are a business customer you must pay all amounts due to us under these terms in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).
If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
.If you think an invoice is wrong, please promptly contact our sales team on 01482 881655 and let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for the loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products including the right to receive products which are: as described and match information we provided to you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
If you are a consumer we only supply the products to you for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose our liability to you will be limited as set out in clause 16.
16.1 Nothing in these terms shall limit or exclude our liability for:
16.1.a death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors (as applicable);
16.1.b fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;
16.1.c breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 or section 2 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982;
16.1.d defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987; or
16.1.e any matter in respect of which it would be unlawful for us to exclude or restrict liability.
16.2 Except to the extent expressly stated in clause 13.1 all terms implied by sections 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 and sections 3 to 5 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 are excluded.
16.3 Subject to clause 16.1:
16.3.a we shall not be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, for any loss of profit, or any indirect or consequential loss arising under or in connection with any contract between us; and
16.3.b our liability to you for all losses arising under or in connection with any product, shall be limited to the value of the product; and
16.3.c our total liability to you for all other losses arising under or in connection with any contract between us, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, shall be limited to the total sums paid by you under this contract.
We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are a consumer and are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact the alternative dispute resolution provider we use. You can submit a complaint to NCC via their website at thencc.org.uk. NCC will not charge you for making a complaint and if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can still bring legal proceedings.
If you are a business, any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a contract between us or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales and the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any such dispute or claim.
