To the extent permitted by law, TIMBERTRADE LLP accepts no liability for any loss, damage or injury arising as a consequence of any reliance placed upon the Guides, whether by a user of our Digital Services or by anyone who may be informed of their contents.

In relation to the Video Guides, all references are correct at the time of filming.

Other important terms

Failure by us to enforce a right does not result in waiver of such right.

Each of the provisions of these Terms of Use operates separately. If any provision (or part of any provision) (including any terms in which we exclude or limit our liability to you) is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable: (i) that provision (or part-provision) will, to the extent required, be excluded from forming part of these Terms of Use; and (ii) the remaining provisions will be unaffected and will remain in full force and effect.

Regardless of the above paragraph, you and we agree that if:

  • you are a consumer (as defined in the Liability section) resident in a part of the United Kingdom other than England and Wales, the law of that part of the United Kingdom will apply to these Terms of Use and any dispute between you and us arising out of or in connection with these Terms of Use (including non-contractual disputes or claims) will be dealt with by the courts located there;

provided that, where we are allowed to do so by law, we may bring a claim against you in the English courts.

3 The order process and formation of the contract between us

You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your orders via the Website up until the point at which you submit your order by clicking the confirm order and pay (or similar) button on the check out page of our Website.

In relation to orders via the Website, where Products you have ordered fall within two or more of the Product types identified in clauses 3.3.1, 3.3.2 and 3.3.3, a separate agreement is formed for each Product when we accept your order for that Product. The processing of your payment and acknowledgment of receipt of your order (whether by email, telephone or otherwise) does not constitute legal acceptance of your order.

4 Buying from us

4.1 You must be 18 or over to purchase Products from us via our Website. Certain Products (for example saws) can only be purchased if you satisfy the legal age requirement for that Product which can be found in the relevant Product description. We are not allowed by law to supply these Products to you if you do not satisfy these age requirements. If you are underage please do not attempt to order or purchase these Products. By ordering and/or purchasing Products you agree that you satisfy the legal age requirements for those Products. We reserve the right not to supply any age restricted Products where we reasonably believe that you are below the relevant legal age for those Products.

4.2 For safety reasons, we reserve the right to restrict sales of certain items to professionally registered tradespeople.

4.3 We will take reasonable steps to display as accurately as possible the colours, appearance and other detailing of our Products (and their packaging) in the images that appear on the Website and in our catalogues and other media. However, we do not guarantee that the images, appearance and other detailing that appear on the Website and in our catalogues and other media will exactly reflect the colour, appearance or detailing of the physical Product (or its packaging). Your Products (and their packaging) may vary slightly from those images.

4.4 Natural products may show some colour variation. To the extent permitted by law, we accept no liability associated with such variations.

4.5 Any information on the Website and in our catalogues and other media regarding sizing, weights, capacities, specifications, dimensions and measurements of Products is included as a guide only. If you are concerned about the precise size, weight, capacity, specifications, dimensions or measurements of any Product you require, we recommend that you contact us prior to placing an order and/or purchasing a Product.

4.6 If your order includes Products that are made according to measurements you provide us, please ensure these measurements are correct and accurate as your right of return as set out in clause 8 below will not be available unless the Products are faulty or incorrectly delivered.

4.7 Where we agree to provide a specifically designed plan as part of or in connection with your order, you will be responsible for checking the accuracy and suitability of the plan and ensuring it meets your requirements before placing an order. Any such plan is, and remains, our property and may not be reproduced in whole or in part without our prior written consent. Any such plan may only be used by you in connection with a quotation or order for Products and/or services from us and/or the provision of Products and/or services by us to you. You are responsible for checking that the details of the plan, and any resulting quotation, are complete, accurate and meet your requirements before committing yourself to an order.

5 Price, delivery charges and availability

5.1 Unless otherwise stated, prices for Products are exclusive of applicable sales tax (including VAT). Sales tax will be applied and will be shown on your invoice at the current applicable rate. Sales tax amounts stated may be subject to rounding variances. The exact amount of sales tax will be shown on the sales tax invoice (where provided). This will not affect the total price inclusive of sales tax.

5.2 Prices for Products exclude delivery charges unless expressly stated otherwise. Delivery charges vary depending on the Product(s) you order, the delivery address and the delivery method you select; please see our Delivery Terms for further details. When you place an order via our Website, delivery charges are calculated automatically in your shopping basket depending on your choices and added to your order.

5.3 We may update prices at any time. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the products we sell may occasionally be mispriced. If this happens then we will not be obliged to supply the Products at the incorrect price or at all. We will (at our discretion) either cancel your order and refund the price you have paid or endeavour to contact you and ask you whether you wish to continue with the order at the correct price. If we are unable to contact you or you do not wish to continue with the order at the correct price, we will cancel your order and refund the price you have paid.

5.4 From time to time we may apply promotional prices to Products, including Website or in-yard only prices. These promotional prices will only apply in the context in which the promotion is given and are subject to the terms of that promotion. For example, Website only prices will not be applicable to in-yard orders or purchases, and in-yard only prices will not be applicable to Website orders or purchases. To take advantage of promotional prices, you must quote the relevant promotion code when you order (where applicable). We may update promotions at any time.

5.5 Prices for commodity goods will be updated regularly, please visit our Website or ask in yard for further details.

5.6 Where we provide a quote to you it will be subject to the terms and conditions applicable to that quote.

5.7 All Products are subject to availability. If you order Products which are not available from stock, we will take reasonable steps to contact you to discuss how you wish to proceed. You will have the option to wait until the Products are available from stock, or cancel your order. If the Products are unlikely to be restocked (or we are unable to contact you), we will cancel your order for those Products and refund the price you have paid for those Products.

6 Payment

6.1 The total cost of your order and/or purchases is the price of the Products and applicable delivery charges.

6.2 We must receive payment in advance before your order and/or purchase can be processed, unless we have agreed otherwise in advance in writing.

6.3 Payment can be made by most major credit or debit cards in accordance with the payment methods section of our Website.

6.4 If you use a credit/debit card to pay for your order, you must use your credit/debit card or a credit/debit card that you are otherwise authorised to use. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks by third parties and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of the card refuses to authorise payment or any other validation checks return adverse results, we will not accept your order and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal.

6.5 We are not responsible for the card issuer or bank charging the cardholder as a result of our processing of the credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.

6.6 You are responsible for all orders placed by your authorised employees.

7 Getting your Products

7.1 If you order Products for delivery then the terms that apply to that delivery will depend upon the Product(s) that you order, the delivery address and the delivery method you select. Unless we specifically agree otherwise, we only deliver to the areas indicated in our Delivery Terms. Depending on your location, some Products may only be available in our yard and some Products may not be available to purchase on our Website.

7.2 You can see a full set of our Delivery Terms on the Website.

7.3 Subject to availability and our Delivery Terms, where we have agreed to deliver the Products, we will use reasonable endeavours to do so on any specified date we agree, or if no date is specified, within 30 days of the date of your order. In the case of circumstances beyond our reasonable control (for example, adverse weather conditions, unpredictable delays caused by traffic congestion, road works, diversions or mechanical breakdowns, in each case to the extent beyond our reasonable control) we may not be able to deliver the Products within these timescales and we will not be liable for any delay or failure to deliver the Products if the delay or failure is wholly or partly caused by such circumstances. In the event that a delivery does not take place, we and you will agree an alternative delivery date.

7.4 You must also do all that you reasonably can to enable the delivery to take place on the given date. If we are unable to deliver the Products as a result of your action or inaction (for example, you are not present at your property), we will need to arrange an alternative delivery date and we reserve the right to charge you a further fee for this.

7.5 For reasons of health and safety and to avoid any property damage, certain Products can only be delivered to the exterior of a ground floor location at the delivery address. You must therefore make your own arrangements at your own risk if the relevant Products need to be transported from the delivery location.

You grant us an irrevocable licence to enter, with or without vehicles, any of your premises for the purpose of inspecting or repossessing the Products.

8 Cancellation and returns

8.1 Please keep your proof of purchase for anything you buy from us. Although you are not obliged to, doing so will ensure we can help you if you need to bring something back.

8.2 You may cancel your order (or any part of it) and return your Products for any reason before dispatch (where applicable) or within 45 days after the date of delivery or collection (as the case may be) by:

Where your order comprises multiple delivery shipments, the 45 day cancellation period for the Products in your order runs from the date of the delivery of the last shipment to you.

8.3 You will lose your right to cancel after the expiry of the 45 day period referred to in clause 8.2 (this does not affect your rights if there is any problem with the Products).

8.4 You may use the cancellation form at the end of these Terms, but you do not have to.

8.5 To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

8.6.4 your right of cancellation does not apply to Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after delivery or collection (which may be the case where the Products are installed).

8.7 In relation to Products delivered to you, you may need to take delivery of the Products before you can cancel your order if the Products are placed into our delivery process before we receive your notice of cancellation. This does not affect your rights under this clause and clause 9.

8.8 Following cancellation, we will refund you the price paid for the cancelled order (or part of the order cancelled), less any collection or return costs or charges (if any). Where you cancel the entire order, we will also refund the standard delivery charges paid (if any), or an amount equal to those charges if you elect to use a more expensive delivery method. Where you cancel part of an order, we may recalculate any applicable delivery charge and deduct this from the refund. We will pay the refund within 14 days after the day:

8.8.1 you notified us to cancel your order, where you have not received the Products (and the Products have not been despatched to you); or

8.8.2 we receive the Products you returned to us, where you are in receipt of the Products; or

8.8.3 you provide us with a proof of return for the Products, where you have returned the Products but we have not yet received them.

For certain Products we offer a collection service. Please contact us for further details. We may charge a fee for this service (the fee will depend on the Products returned, but will not exceed £50).

8.11 You must keep the Product(s) you wish to return in your possession and take reasonable care of the Product(s) at all times while they are in your possession. This means that you must not use the Products (except to the extent reasonably necessary to inspect and examine them).

8.12 We reserve the right to make a deduction from the amount of any refund for loss in value of the Products returned where the Products show signs of unreasonable use; for these purposes, unreasonable use includes handling the Products beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Products, in particular, if it goes beyond the sort of handling that might reasonably be allowed in a yard. Where you are in possession of the Products (or they have been dispatched to you), we may withhold any refund until we have received the Products or you have supplied proof of return for the Products.

8.13 We reserve the right to require proof of identity.
