Terms and Conditions
We’ve tried to keep our Terms and Conditions as clear and simple as possible, providing you all the information we can (but not too much) about your transactions so that you completely understand the whole process, from order to delivery and beyond. It’s really important to us that your shopping experience meets expectations, so please spend a few minutes and read on. You’ll need to accept our T’s & C’s every time you make a purchase – they might change from time to time, so do check the date at the top of the page.

1. OUR CONTRACT AFTER YOU HAVE ORDERED
Once you’re happy everything is correct and you’ve submitted an order you’ll be given an Order Reference Number with details of the product(s) you have ordered along with the delivery tracking number.
Sometimes we have to hold our hands up and admit we have made a mistake by unintentionally publishing inaccurate information on the site (e.g. the price, description or availability of a product you have ordered). In this instance we may have to cancel your order at any time up to the point we send you the product(s), even if you have received your Order Confirmation email, and you will receive a full refund of any charges already paid. If this does happen we will notify you immediately to offer an alternative product or update you with an estimated delivery date.
2. PRICES AND PAYMENTS
All our prices are in UK pounds. The total cost of your order will be the price of the products you order, the delivery charge (if any), plus any additional services you choose e.g. Pre 9am delivery. You’ll see all these in your Shopping Basket before you submit an order. Payment is processed once the order is submitted.
All our items are delivered by courier (DPD or DHL Express Delivery Services) or by post to the delivery address provided when you place your order. Once your order is confirmed, we will endeavour to deliver the goods within the delivery period that applies to the option you have chosen.
UK (domestic) orders include free next working day delivery via DPD, a fully trackable service. We endeavour to dispatch orders placed on weekdays before 3PM on the same day.
International Orders are currently available within Europe and will be dispatched via DPD Classic or DHL Express Worldwide. For VAT qualifying purchases we will need to confirm a valid EU VAT ID to discount VAT from the purchase price (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As an online business we do not offer a store to visit or a collection service.
4. RETURNS / CANCELLATIONS
Following the Consumer Contracts Regulations we will accept items back even if you’ve open the good to inspect them. You are entitled to a refund as long as you inform us within 14 days from the day of delivery that you wish to return your order. The goods must be in an “as sold” condition and returned in the original, undamaged packaging, along with any accessories or free gifts received with it. The product must not have been used or have any data inputted. Whilst the goods are in your possession you must take reasonable care of them and not use them.
5. FAULTY GOODS
It’s bad enough that your product develops a fault, so if required, we try to make our returns option as swift and easy as possible. As soon as you discover that any goods are faulty you should notify us and one of our skilled engineers will help diagnose the problem. Faulty goods means any goods we supply that do not conform to the Orders Product Description.
We do not cover faults caused by accident, neglect, misuse, normal wear and tear by you or any third party, or any alteration or repair carried out without our prior approval.
When you return goods to us:
- You must include proof of purchase
- You must ensure that they are properly and securely packaged and labelled with our address.
- You are responsible for any damage or loss in transit.
6. MISSING, DAMAGED OR INCORRECT ORDERS
We do everything we can to ensure your order arrives at your door complete and as described. If you don’t receive your orders when expected, you can check that they have been dispatched using our tracking facility detailed in the confirmation email. If it’s not on its way you can contact us on 0208 819 3244.
All machines are supplied with our six month Return to Base Hardware Warranty where faulty goods will be repaired or replaced with goods equal or greater in specification. As above, we do not cover faults caused by accident, neglect, misuse, normal wear and tear, or any alteration or repair carried out without our prior approval.
Where products are covered by Apple’s One-Year Limited Warranty and/or Apple’s AppleCare Protection Plan machines will be supplied with the relevant documentation and transferred into the buyers name. Note, any upgrades (i.e. Hard Drive or RAM) that have been made will not be covered by Apple but in most cases will be covered by the respective manufacturers’.
We operate under two different VAT schemes depending on where our products have been sourced.
- The Margin Scheme - All items sold under the Margin Scheme will not have a VAT component on the invoice, therefore no VAT can be reclaimed.
- Normal VAT Scheme - All items sold under the normal VAT Scheme will have VAT charged at the current rate, 20%, and the VAT component will be displayed separately on the invoice, hence allowing it to be reclaimed if you are a VAT registered business.
The applicable VAT scheme will be indicated in the product description and on the Order Confirmation.
Whilst we make every effort to indicate which VAT scheme the product falls under in the Product Description, if you have strict requirements for a VAT qualifying product please contact us prior to placing your order to confirm.
VAT registered buyers from within the EU may purchase VAT qualifying items free of VAT providing they can provide their VAT number and require the item dispatched to the country in which they are VAT registered.
We do not store credit card details nor do we share customers details with any 3rd parties. We do not store personally identifiable information in our cookie data.
