Terms & Conditions
We can receive orders via the company’s web site, by phone, fax, mail or e-mail using the contact methods published on our web site or in other publicity materials. We reserve the right to refuse to accept orders or to require additional confirmation at our discretion. We acknowledge receipt of your orders via an appropriate communication: For example, web-based orders are acknowledged automatically by e-mail, telephone orders are acknowledged verbally at time of the order being placed. Orders placed by telephone are accepted when the order is placed and a contract of sale then exists between us and you from that time. If orders are placed by fax, by mail or via our web site, no contract exists between you and the company until the order has been dispatched/shipped.
If we acknowledge an order but, for some reason outside our control, we are unable to complete the transaction within 28 days then any payment made will be refunded immediately if you ask us to do so. Refunds due against returned goods will be paid as soon as the returned goods are received by us, subject to the goods being received in unused, undamaged condition in their original packaging.
We endeavour to ensure that all published prices are correct. However we reserve the right to change prices without notice and not to accept orders at prices that have been quoted in error. Prices are quoted in pounds sterling and are inclusive of VAT at the prevailing rate.
Online price errors
If we discover an error in the price of goods ordered or reserved, we will inform you as soon as possible (e.g. prior to the goods being despatched/shipped or in store prior to the collection of the goods). We will provide you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you choose to cancel and have already paid for the goods you will receive a full refund.
All credit card payments made during on-line transactions are handled on our behalf by the SagePay secure payment gateway and handled using SSL 128 bit encryption. No credit card details are processed or stored at any time on the company’s web site.
Most of the products sold on this website are available from stock. You should expect to receive your delivery within 2-4 days. If there are any problems with availability, then you will be notified immediately, and, in most cases, a suitable alternative will be offered. For urgent orders such as guaranteed next day deliveries, stock should be checked prior to ordering and placed before 2PM. Please contact us for timed or overseas deliveries.
Most orders received by noon (Monday to Friday) are usually despatched the next day and the vast majority within 48 hours of receipt, subject to stock availability.
Orders are delivered by the most appropriate method, usually first class post or courier. Orders should generally be delivered within 2 or 4 working days of the despatch date, but this is not guaranteed. Please note that Royal Mail post may take up to 15 working days for delivery. Until this period is over, we are unable to replace or refund orders sent by standard delivery. If you require an order to be delivered urgently, please contact us to make the necessary arrangements. A next-day delivery service may be available. If you arrange an urgent delivery, there is still no absolute guarantee that it will be delivered the next day, as despite our best efforts, courier failure/errors and ‘acts of god’ may still occur. Therefore while every effort will be made to have your goods delivered on time, Light Shop Direct Ltd accept no responsibility for any costs incurred as a result of delayed delivery. If delivery is delayed excessively, we will do our utmost to inform you as soon as possible. We are happy to give you the option of purchasing alternative items or receiving a full refund of any payments that you have made. If we are unable to deliver within 28 days of ordering, we will always give you the option of receiving a full refund of any payments made. Delivery charges quoted are for UK mainland destinations only using our standard delivery methods. For deliveries over 1.5kg to the Scottish Highlands and Northern Ireland, off-shore destinations and express services, please contact our sales office for a quotation. Please note that most orders weighing in excess of approximately 2 kg and any valuable deliveries are delivered by courier and will require a signature on delivery. Please ensure that you provide a delivery address where someone will be available between 9.00 and 17.00 Monday to Friday to accept delivery. If our couriers are unable to deliver an order due to the address being unmanned, a card will be left asking you to contact them directly to arrange re-delivery. If no contact is made within 2 days the order will be returned to us and a re-delivery charge will be levied to cover our re-delivery costs. Please make sure that you always order your light bulbs to arrive well before you need them as costs of cherry pickers and sub contractors are always more expensive than the light bulbs themselves.
