14.3. Any delivery dates stated during the order process, or in your order acknowledgment or shipping confirmation emails, are estimates, unless we have agreed a specific delivery date with you.
14.4. We will do all that we reasonably can to ensure your order is delivered within the delivery period or on the delivery date agreed with you.

15.3. Please examine the products as soon as reasonably possible after delivery and notify us of any fault or damage as soon as reasonably possible.
15.4. Once your order has been delivered to your address or in accordance with the delivery instructions you provided to us, the risk in the products passes to you and the goods are classed as having been 'delivered'. This means that you are responsible for the products and we are not liable to you if the products are stolen or damaged after they have been delivered to you. This does not affect your legal rights if the products are faulty or misdescribed. Ownership of the products passes to you once you have paid for them in full.
15.5. We may deliver your goods in one or more instalments unless otherwise agreed between you and us in writing.
16. CANCELLATION RIGHTS
16.1. Except in the circumstances listed in clause 16.4, you have 14 days from the delivery date to change your mind and cancel your order.
16.2. If you cancel your order before the 14 days cancellation period ends and you have already received the order, you must return the goods to us without undue delay and in any event within 14 days of telling us that you want to cancel your order. The deadline is met if you send the goods back to us before the 14-day period has expired.
16.3. We strongly recommend that you get proof of postage. We may withhold the refund until we have received the products back from you or until you have provided us with evidence that you have sent the products back (whichever is earlier).
16.4. You do not have the right to cancel orders that are specially ordered, fabricated and/or made to your specifications, bespoke or personalised goods or any products that have a protective seal (eg liquid, gel or paste type products, glue, electrofusion fittings, coils) if that seal has been broken. These will be identified on our website as non-returnable products.
16.5. To cancel your order, you can use the cancellation form available here. To help us process your cancellation more quickly and accurately, please have your order number ready and include it in the email to [email protected] or in the cancellation form you send to us.
16.6. Products must be returned to us in a new and unused condition and, to the extent possible, in their original packaging. We may make a deduction from the refund amount if you or your chosen return carrier handled (or we received) the product in a way that has diminished the value of the product, if such handling was beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products. You are responsible for the products while they are in your possession. Note that putting tape directly onto the parts when returning them can cause a reaction with the plastic, due to the glues in the tape. We would advise against doing this as it diminishes the value of the product.
16.7. Unless your products are faulty or misdescribed, you are responsible for the cost and arrangement of returning the products to us. For information on how to return your products to us, go to our returns page.
16.8. We will provide you with a full refund (including basic delivery charges if the full order is cancelled) as soon as possible. If you cancelled before you received any products or before they were sent to you, we will issue the refund no later than 14 days after the day on which you told us that you want to cancel. If you have sent products back to us, we will issue the refund no later than 14 days after the day we receive the products back from you or, if earlier, 14 days after the day you provide us with evidence that you have sent the products back.
16.9. We will issue your refund to the same payment method you used when you placed your order.
17. FAULTY PRODUCTS
17.1. The products that we provide to you must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with our contract with you.

|Up to six years:||If the product does not last a reasonable length of time, you may be entitled to some money back.|
17.3. The table above is a summary of some of your key rights. They are in addition to your cancellation rights set out in clause 16 above. For more detailed information on your rights, visit the Citizens Advice website at www.citizensadvice.org.uk or call 0808 223 1133.
17.4. If your products are faulty or misdescribed, please contact us as soon as reasonably possible by calling us on 01786 472850 or emailing us at [email protected].
