Once the Product is selected for purchase the Price shown is inclusive of VAT. Delivery costs, if applicable will be additional to the Price.

In these circumstances, we will refund any money paid by you for those Products and any delivery monies you have been charged. However, we will not be responsible for any other losses, costs, damages or charges that you may suffer if we delay in supplying or do not supply those Products. At the time of delivery you will be required to sign-off on the delivery of the Products, after which time the Products become your sole responsibility.
