3 Your status
By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:
3.1 You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and
3.2 You are at least 18 years old.
4 How the contract is formed between you and us
4.1 After placing an order, whether by phone or through this website or by email, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. If you place an order by phone you will receive a letter acknowledging that we have received your order (both types of acknowledgment are referred to here as an “Order Acknowledgement”). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product is in stock and is ready to be or has been dispatched (the “Dispatch Confirmation”). The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation. Prior to sending any Dispatch Confirmation we will email you or send you a letter informing you of the expected delivery date, total cost and other relevant details (“Delivery Date Confirmation”). You will be asked to confirm by return of email or letter if you are happy to proceed on the basis of the details set out in the Delivery Date Confirmation. If you confirm in this manner we will secure your delivery date in return for payment of a deposit of 50% of the price of the Product by you.
4.2 The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch details we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may not be available; such Products will not be included within the Dispatch Confirmation.
4.3 If prior to delivery you wish to change the colour or size of the Products you have ordered please contact us by e-mail or in writing. We will endeavour, subject to availability, to accommodate your request as long as there is no change to the price of the Products you have ordered.
5 Consumer rights
5.1 If you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel a Contract at any time within seven working days, beginning on the day after you received the Products. In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 11 below).
5.2 To cancel a Contract, you must inform us in writing. You must also return the Product(s) to us immediately, in the same condition in which you received them, and at your own cost and risk. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
5.3 You will not have any right to cancel a Contract for the supply of any Products which require us to:
5.3.1 upholster seats in non-standard materials e.g. to match the interior of a particular vehicle; or
5.3.2 any other non-standard order requests which would require us to personalise or alter our standard Product in any way.
5.4 Details of this statutory right, and an explanation of how to exercise it, are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation. This provision does not affect your statutory rights.
6 Description of the products
6.1 The description of the Products you order will be as shown on this Site at the time you place your order.
6.2 The Products are subject to availability. If on receipt of your order the Products you have ordered are not available in stock, we will inform you as soon as possible of the likely delivery date in the Delivery Date Confirmation. If the delivery date is acceptable, to secure your order you will be required to pay a deposit. The amount of the deposit required to be paid by you will be 50% of the price of the Product and such an amount will be charged to your credit or debit card immediately on confirmation by you that you require this option.

8.2 Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days starting with the day after you placed the order with us, unless there are exceptional circumstances or where we have agreed otherwise between us. If the actual delivery date is after such a date, or 30 days, you will be given the option of a refund or recredit to you for any sums that have been paid by you or debited from your debit or credit card for the Products.

9 Risk and title
9.1 The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
9.2 Ownership of the Products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.
10 Price and payment
10.1 The price of any Products will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
10.2 These prices include VAT at the relevant United Kingdom (“UK”) rate for orders made within the UK but exclude delivery costs and charges for credit and/or debit card payments, which will be added to the total amount due as set out in our Delivery Guide. For orders received outside of the UK the VAT, (or any equivalent sales or value added tax), delivery costs and charges for credit or debit card payments will differ and you will be notified accordingly in our Dispatch Confirmation.
10.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.
10.4 Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our Dispatch Confirmation procedure so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
10.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
10.6 Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card. We accept payment with a number of credit and debit cards as listed on our Site through World Pay. If the Product:
10.6.1 is in stock and can be delivered to you within 30 days of your placing your order then we will charge your credit or debit card for the full amount when we receive your confirmation of the Delivery Date Confirmation, as set out in clause 4.1 above.
10.6.2 is out of stock, you will have the opportunity to pay a deposit to reserve your order, as set out in clause 4.1 and 6.2 above.
10.6.3 was previously out of stock but has since become available and you have paid a deposit, we will charge the balance left owing to us to your credit or debit card when we send to you our Dispatch Confirmation.
10.7 When we take the full amount for payment or a deposit from you, we will request your debit/credit card details for such payment. We will not store such details for longer than necessary to take payment for such sum. When we take the balance of the payment of the full amount, we will again request for debit/credit card details, in order to take such payment.
11 Our refunds policy
11.1 When you return a Product to us:
11.1.1 because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the seven-day cooling-off period (see clause 5.1 above), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. In this case, we will refund the price of the Product, not including the cost of sending the item to you. You will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.
