1. How these Terms and Conditions apply

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 form the contract between us ("Contract").

2. About this Website

2.1 The information on this Website is in English, all communications shall be in English and the Website is designed to comply with English law. You may be viewing the Website in a market in which we do not commonly sell our goods and we cannot be held responsible for non-compliance with any local advertising or other laws in relation to this Website or its content.

2.2 You can write to us at the address shown above. Our retail shop is also situated at that address. Our contact telephone number is 01922 494 608 (Please note that all calls made to and from us are recorded for service and training purposes). Calls to our sales/customer service helpline from landlines are typically charged up to 16p per minute. Many providers charge a 23p call set-up fee (or 'connection charge'), but this can vary. Call charges are dependent on the time of day, and most providers offer call packages that allow calls free of charge at certain times of the day. Call costs from mobiles vary according to the calling plan chosen. Typically, they are included in free call packages. However, if you call an 01/02 number outside of any inclusive minutes, they can cost between 3p and 65p per minute. Our email address for any enquiries is sales@applianceelectronics.co.uk. We aim to respond to any email enquiry within 48 working hours.

 

2.3 We take care to provide information on our Website which is as accurate as possible. However, sometimes there may be errors on our Website or the specification from a manufacturer may change. We also aim to ensure that product images are accurate but there may be slight variations between the Goods and the images shown with regard to colour and product contents. All images are therefore provided for illustration only. When purchasing freestanding products that you wish to put in enclosed spaces, be aware that manufacturers do not measure protruding control knobs or doors. For exact measurements contact the manufacturer’s technical helpline. The contact numbers can be found on our contact us page.
 

3. Agreement for the sale of goods

3.1 The Website displays Goods for sale and gives information about them. By advertising Goods on the Website, we are inviting you to place an Order. If you place an Order, we are not obliged to accept it and the Contract between us will only be formed if and when we accept your Order.

3.2 You may include any number of items in an Order, subject to any restrictions we may stipulate from time to time. Each Order which you place is a separate Contract between us.

3.3 Any terms and conditions which you may refer to at any time shall have no effect. Any variation of the Contract must be confirmed in writing by us.

4. Ordering process

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 – Selecting your Goods
You can select Goods for purchase by clicking on the items you are interested in and then clicking on "Add to Basket". Please read the entire product description and consider any other items that may be required in order for that product to operate.

Step 2 - Reviewing your Basket
You can review the products added to Your Basket and change the contents. You can also enter a promotional code. Entering a valid promotional code and clicking 'Apply Voucher' will update the total. Delivery times are stated on the product page. Once goods have been dispatched an email will be sent to you with the tracking information or driver’s contact number. For large goods such as washing machines, TVs and other home appliances, we will contact you by phone at least a day before delivery to confirm the arrangements.

Step 3 - Going to Checkout and Customer registration
Once you have finished shopping, you can proceed by clicking on 'Pay by Card or Finance' or 'PayPal Checkout' or 'Amazon Pay'. At this stage, you will be asked whether you agree to these Terms.

To register you will be asked for your contact and billing 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. If you select 'PayPal Checkout' or ‘Amazon Pay’ we will automatically create your registration, unless a previous registration has been completed, based on the information provided by PayPal. You will be asked to confirm the delivery address of the Order.

Step 4 - Order Summary and Payment Information
You will then see your Order summary. Please check the details very carefully and correct any mistakes or change the Goods which you want to Order.

If you selected 'Pay by Card or Finance' you will be asked to choose the finance option or 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 confirm the payment details, your Order will be placed and the payment will be taken.

Step 5 - 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. 

5. Orders we may decline

5.1 We may refuse an Order if we decide it is reasonable to do so which may include where:

5.1.1 we are unable to obtain authorised payment or the payment process is incomplete; or
5.1.2 we identify a product or pricing error on the Website; or
5.1.3 you fail to meet any criteria for eligibility of purchase which we impose; or
5.1.4 you fail to submit all necessary and relevant details to allow us to fulfil the Order; or
5.1.5 Goods are unavailable or out of stock.

5.2 We may contact you by telephone or email to verify details before we are able to process and dispatch your Order or we may be unable to accept it. For example, we may do this if your Order is of particularly high value, or, if paying by Card, you request a different delivery address the billing address has not match or the 3D secure part at the end of checkout has not been completed or passed.

5.3 The Goods shown on this Website are intended for private use and you must not resell Goods in bulk or offer them as a commercial enterprise. We may at any time, limit the total value of Goods which can be included in an Order.

6. Price and payment

6.1 Prices and delivery charges are as shown on the Website at the time of Order. Prices include VAT where applicable and are in pounds sterling by default.

6.2 We may amend prices at any time. Where there is a difference between a price at the time the Order is made and when it is accepted by us, we will inform you by email or phone and ask if you wish to proceed. If you decline and for any reason payment has already been taken, it will be re-credited. Due to online competition with other retailers, prices change daily to keep our site the best value. If a price is listed on our website, that is the price you pay, if the price changes after you have purchased the goods to a higher or lower price we cannot give you the lower price.

6.3 Offers and promotions on the Website are subject to availability and we may change or withdrawn them at any time without notice. Additional terms may apply, details of which will be displayed.

6.4 We must receive payment for the Goods in full before they are dispatched.

6.5 We accept payment via Novuna Personal Finance, Paypal, Amazon Pay, bank transfer and most major credit and debit cards including Visa, Amex and Mastercard. You must only use a card if you are the named cardholder. By placing an Order, you confirm that you are the authorised cardholder. All card holders are subject to validation and security checks as well as authorisation by the card issuer and any additional terms imposed by the issuer. If the issuer does not authorise payment, we will not accept your Order and will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

To pay by bank transfer please contact our sales team on 01922 494 608 or email us.

6.6 Goods which are out of stock at the time we receive an Order, will be held as a backorder. Any backordered Goods will be shipped when they become available to us. If Goods are no longer available, the Order will be cancelled and where required a refund will be issued. If we do not have sufficient stocks of Goods, we will notify you by email or phone. We will do this as soon as possible and by no later than 30 (thirty) days following the initial Order date. We will not be responsible for any compensation if Goods which you order are not available for any reason.

6.7 While we try to ensure that all prices on our Website are accurate, errors may occur. In the case of obvious error in the price of Goods you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your Order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the Order as cancelled. If the Order is cancelled and you have already paid for the Goods, you will receive a full refund.

6.8 For items with a future release date, the price may be subject to change between the time of Order and the date the item is dispatched. If we discover a rise in the price of such Goods we will inform you as soon as possible and you may reconfirm your Order at the revised price or cancel. If we cannot contact you, we will treat the Order as cancelled. If so and you have already paid for the Goods, you will receive a full refund.

6.9 A purchase receipt is provided with every order upon delivery, if you do not receive one please inform us within 7 working days and we will issue a duplicate copy. After this period we will not issue any receipts in any case, so please keep your receipt safe as you will require it for any warranty claims.

6.10 Listings that are marked with a "Price Promise" badge offer a guarantee that we will refund the difference if the price of a product is reduced on our website within 7 days of purchase. Price Promise request must be made within 14 days of the lower price being advertised. Please email us (sales@applianceelectronics.co.uk) with a screenshot showing the lower price. Price Promise only applies to selected products which will be clearly marked with a “Price Promise” badge on the product page of the website.

6.11 Refunds for deposit payments for finance applications can take up to 7 - 10 working days to reflect in your account. Since this payment is a deferred payment you would have to contact your bank or card provider and request them to return the funds back to your account instantly. If you don’t contact you bank then it could take 7 – 10 working days for the payment to be returned automatically.

6.12 We do not accept foreign or pre-paid cards. If we receive any orders, the transaction amount will be refunded within 10 - 14 working days, we will not be responsible for any loss.
 

7. Cancellations & Returns

If You Change Your Mind

This section 7 applies where you exercise a cooling off right. Clauses 7.1 to 7.15 are not intended to cover situations where there are defects or other problems in which case, refer to Clauses 7.16 to 7.23.

7.1 You have a right to cancel the Contract for any reason at any time within a 14 (fourteen) day cancellation period. This period is extended to 30 (thirty) days for faulty/damaged goods. This period begins on the day after you (or any person who you nominate to take delivery), receive the Goods. This is the "cooling off period".

To cancel, you may tell us in writing. You can inform us by post or e-mail. Alternatively, you can simply return Goods to us during the fourteen day cooling off period instead. Our details are:

Appliance Electronics UK Limited

52a Harisson Street

Walsall

West Midlands

WS3 3HW

Email address: sales@applianceelectronics.co.uk

7.2 To meet the cancellation deadline, it is enough if you tell us that you want cancel before the cooling off period has expired.

7.3 You must also keep the Goods in a re-saleable condition (i.e. not fitted or used, dirty or muddy), in their original packaging. You should send back the Goods back to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you tell us you wish to cancel. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired. We also ask that you send a copy of your receipt when you return the Goods. It is also helpful if you can give a reason for a return though this is for our information only and will not affect your rights.

7.4 If you exercise your rights, we reimburse you without undue delay not later than 14 days after the day we received the Goods back from you or (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the Goods or if there were no Goods supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel.

7.5 Reimbursement is usually via the same method as the original payment. You will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the Goods back.

7.6 We will refund the full price of the Goods. However, if you paid for a delivery service, we will not reimburse those additional delivery charges which you paid.

7.7 If you ordered more than one product and you want to return only some items you may not be entitled to a refund of the delivery charge.

7.8 The cooling off rights will not apply in the case of bespoke or special, made to order Goods.

7.9 You are responsible for the cost of returning Goods to us.

7.10 If you do not return the Goods, we may arrange for collection and recover from you our direct costs of doing this either by reducing the amount of the refund by the collection cost or otherwise as is reasonable.

7.11 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 exercising your cooling off right, we may withhold the amount which may otherwise have been due to you as reimbursement and recover that amount from you up to the amount of the price you paid to us under the Contract.

7.12 This does not preclude your right to handle the Goods to properly look at them as you may otherwise do in a shop to look at the Goods and their characteristics.

7.13 When you return Goods you remain responsible for them until we receive them back. You should therefore ensure that Goods are well packaged and insured.

7.14 You should avoid attaching postage labels or similar to the packaging directly. Please wrap Goods first before attaching any labels.

7.15 We shall not be obliged to accept returns following the end of the cooling off period but if we do, it shall be at our discretion and subject to a restocking charge.

7.16 If goods are not ready and packaged for collection as agreed, we will apply failed collection charges before arranging another attempt.

7.17 Goods cannot be installed, assembled or taken apart. Goods that have a seal on the packaging can only be returned if the seal is intact and has not been tampered with. We will not accept the returns if products are returned damaged / or with the seal broken or tampered with. In the case of washing machines, we cannot accept the return of a washing machine within the 14 day cooling off period, if the transit bolts have been removed.

 

Faulty, incorrect, missing or damaged Goods

7.18 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 cause by crashing, abuse, water ingress or general wear and tear or if Goods have been misused, altered or repaired without our approval. You should refer to the terms of the warranty supplied with the Goods. You may contact us in the first instance and we will usually inspect the Goods and 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. Any Goods which need to be returned for these purposes should always be clean and not covered in dirt. You should also register the goods with the manufacturer 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.

7.19 You should inspect the products 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.

7.20 Where Goods have been damaged in transit but we are not immediately notified in accordance with Clause 7.10, please let us know within 24 hours. This does not apply to goods that were inspected on delivery. 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 (as appropriate). Please also provide a copy of your receipt and avoid attaching postage labels or similar to the packaging directly. Please wrap Goods to be returned first, before attaching labels.

7.21 If we have dispatched an incorrect item, if you wish we will make an exchange and pay agreed costs of returning the item. For large or valuable items, please contact us in the first instance and we will arrange a courier instead where we feel this is appropriate.

7.22 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 3 working days of the date of dispatch so that we can start investigating as soon as possible. Dispatch is confirmed by e-mail or phone. If an item is lost in transit, we may not dispatch a replacement immediately. Resent or replacement items will be dispatched at our discretion or subject to availability, once all tracking and investigative avenues have been exhausted.

7.23 If we do not find any fault or defect then your cancellation and refund rights are limited to those set out also in Clauses 7.1 to 7.14 above though this does not affect your statutory rights and you will be charged 15% of the value of the order as a handling fee.

7.24 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 cause in delivery then we reserve our right to withhold that amount which may otherwise have been due to you.

7.25 If you return Goods either because you believe they are faulty or because you change your mind, we ask that Goods be accompanied by a form of proof of posting.

7.26 If your product develops a fault please contact the customer service number for the manufacturer, to arrange engineer visit to remedy any faults. If you are experiencing any issues with an item you have purchased within 30 days, we can offer a replacement or a refund however the item must be diagnosed and the fault must be confirmed by the manufacturer before we can proceed with a replacement or a refund.

7.27 If any faults occur after a 30-day period up to 6 months from delivery, then goods have to be repaired under warranty. If the repair is unsuccessful, we will issue a replacement or refund. Any faults that occur after the 6 months until the manufacturer's warranty expires goods have to be repaired under warranty. We will only provide a replacement or refund if the manufacturer confirms the appliance is beyond repair, in which case we will require an uplift number which will allow us to provide a replacement or a refund in line with our terms and conditions. Please note, if RC models are found to be faulty, the faulty part will be replaced under warranty.

Please note that we cannot accept the return of a washing machine within the 14 day cooling off period, if the transit bolts have been removed.

9.11 Due to washing machines and dishwashers being products that use water, sometimes water and moisture will be apparent inside the machines or on the packaging as these products are tested by the manufacturers
 

9.12 We deliver to most of mainland Great Britain only.

If the goods have been dispatched (regardless of order status shown on your online account, as this may be updated after sometime) and we are able to change the delivery date, an administration fee of up to GBP 45.00 will be charged to action this request.
