Making A Purchase
Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.
We accept Visa and Mastercard. We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Backordered items are not charged until they are shipped. We reserve the right to impose a £45 minimum order charge for certain items not in stock.
When confirmation of an order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
FORMATION OF CONTRACT OF SALE
These terms of sale shall be deemed incorporated in all orders placed by customers. To constitute a contract an order must be accepted in writing by P.M.S. (Instruments) Limited (the Company), Waldeck House, Waldeck Road , MAIDENHEAD, Berkshire SL6 8BR. Unless the company agrees in writing to any additional terms or amendments proposed by the customer these terms shall constitute the entire contract of sale. The Company reserves the right to refuse any Order at any time.
Shipping And Handling
We do not charge delivery for web orders over £100 excluding VAT. Orders with a value of less than £100 (excluding VAT) will attract a delivery charge of £5.95 (excluding VAT).
Times quoted for delivery date from the Companies acceptance of the order are estimated figures only and are given in good faith. The Company accepts no responsibility or liability for delay and no delay shall entitle the customer to reject any delivery or to repudiate the Contract or claim damages or compensation.
The Company will make every reasonable effort to comply therewith, but shall not be responsible for failure to do so nor shall the customer have any right to cancel the contract on account thereof.
RISK AND TITLE TO GOODS
Risk of loss and responsibility for the equipment pass to the customer upon receipt of the equipment. Title to the goods shall not pass to the customer until payment is received by the Company, in full. In the case of business customers, before Title has passed and without prejudice to its other rights, the customer irrevocably authorises the Company and its servants and agents to enter upon the customers premises, where the goods are stored, for the purpose of repossessing them and subsequently re-selling them.
If the item you order is in stock we will normally despatch your order in three working days. We deliver your order either by next working day UPS courier or Royal Mail Signed For.
This site is intended for UK use only. We can ship internationally but different shipping rates will apply.
If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.
For orders made from the UK or the European Union, VAT at the current UK applicable rate at the time of ordering is added.
