You are provided with access to this Website in accordance with these Conditions and any orders placed by you must be placed strictly in accordance with these Conditions.

Active Mail Order shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and monies have been set aside on your credit card.

Basis of Sale
When you click on "Buy Now" at the checkout on the website, or telephone on the mail order line, you offer to buy the Goods at the prices indicated including any delivery charges that apply to your purchase. All orders will be subject to these conditions. If your order is acknowledged online, you will be notified of this soon after you submit your order. Please note that as the acknowledgement is sent to you automatically, an error may have been made of which we are not aware despite our best efforts (please see under 'Non-acceptance of an order' heading). Because of this, we retain the right to cancel the order.
Non-acceptance of an Order
Orders may be rejected as a result of one of the following:
The product you ordered being unavailable from stock.
Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment.
The identification of a pricing or product description error.
A system error - such as automatic confirmation making an error.
You request delivery outside of UK mainland and do not accept the extra delivery charges.
Cancellation of an Order
If, for whatever reason, you wish to cancel your order please let us know as soon as possible. Once and order has been despatched we are unable to cancel. Please do not refuse to accept delivery of an order as a way of cancellation. If delivery of an order is refused the goods will be returned to us by our carriers. We will be charged for this return and we will deduct these charges, plus handling charges, from any refund amount.
All prices are exempt of VAT. The total cost of your order is the price of the Products ordered plus delivery charges and any other charges as set out in the 'Delivery' section. Some items may incur extra charges because of the item being particularly heavy or being subject to an installation charge. Wherever possible we have made every effort to highlight these items. However, before your order is confirmed and accepted, we may contact you to inform you of any further charges.
Payment can be made by any of the methods specified in the 'Payment' section and payment will be debited and cleared from your account.
You confirm that the credit, debit or store card that is being used is yours.
All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. Please note that we do not accept American Express Cards.
Delivery Of Order
Although we endeavour to despatch most stock item orders within 24-96hrs please allow up to 28 days for deliveries. Certain non stock items, and those items made to your specifications, may take longer. Unless we have stated otherwise in writing delivery dates are not guaranteed, although we shall make every reasonable effort to deliver the goods by any quoted delivery date.
Once and order has been despatched we are unable to cancel. Please do not refuse to accept delivery of an order as a way of cancellation. If delivery of an order is refused the goods will be returned to us by our carriers. We will be charged for this return and we will deduct these charges, plus handling charges, from any refund amount.
Most items will require a signature on delivery. When signing for a delivery it is imperative that all items are first checked to be undamaged. Once a delivery has been signed for as being in good condition we are unable to seek recompense and are therefore unable to offer any form of refund for any damage in transit. We are unable to accept any liability for loss or damage to any item where we, or our couriers, have been instructed to leave it without obtaining a signature.
Prices apply to UK delivery only. For orders that are deemed as heavy goods, or that are made to your specifications (see in the full description), please call 01273 930468 as extra costs may apply. Orders placed online, regardless of this request to call, will not be accepted.
Under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 you have a statutory right to cancel your order and receive a full refund if, for any reason, you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase or the goods are faulty or damaged. You must notify us within 7 (seven) working days of receiving the Products. Items must be returned in their original condition and packaging. If the returned items are not in a resaleable "as new" condition a refund may not be possible. If items are missing from your order, please notify us as soon as possible.
Goods must be returned to our head office within 14 days of notifying our sales advisors. Returns are sent at your own expense. When returning items you are strongly recommended to obtain proof of posting. We cannot accept responsibility for parcels lost in transit. We will only refund the costs of postage where the item returned is faulty.
