  5. 5 Orders
    1. 5.1 Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Once you have chosen the Goods you wish to purchase from the Website you will select to have the Goods delivered or to reserve and collect the Goods from one of our branches. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of your order. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Following an order being placed by you, we will send an e-mail acknowledging that such order has been received. This e-mail does not constitute an acceptance of your order and all orders are subject to acceptance by us in accordance with Clauses 5.2 (in the case of Goods for delivery) and 5.3 (in the case of Goods for collection) below. We reserve the right to reject an order for any reason.
    2. 5.2 In the case of Goods for delivery, we will contact you to confirm a convenient delivery time and date. We are not able to process or deliver orders on UK Bank Holidays, Saturdays and Sundays and days designated for stock take. Your order will be accepted and the Contract will be formed between you and us (and becomes legally binding) at the point at which we notify you that we have dispatched the Goods to you unless:
      1. (i) we have notified you that we do not accept your order;
      2. (ii) you have cancelled it (Please refer to the Returns and Refunds Clause below); or
      3. (iii)the order is for collection (Please refer to Clause 5.3 below).
      4. We cannot accept an order until payment is received in full for all Goods and any related delivery charges.
    3. 5.3 In the case of orders for collection by you, we will contact you, on the contact telephone number you provided during the order process, when the Goods are available for collection. The Goods will be reserved for 5 (five) working days from the date on which all Goods subject to the Contract become available for collection and if you have not collected the Goods by the expiry of this period we shall treat such order as cancelled. In the case of orders for collection, the Contract is formed between you and us (and becomes legally binding) at the time at which we allow you to remove the Goods from our premises following receipt of payment in full for the Goods and any delivery charges.
    4. 5.4 All orders are subject to stock availability and we reserve the right to correct obvious errors on our Website. If we are unable to supply any Goods that you have ordered, for example because the Goods are not in stock or because of an error in the price on our Website, we will inform you as soon as possible. In the event that an out-of stock item of Goods is part of your order, we will contact you using the contact details provided in your order to give you the option of amending your order to include only those Goods that we have in stock, in which case we will refund the purchase price of the out-of-stock or incorrectly priced Goods where payment has already been made.
    5. 5.5 We intend to rely on the written terms set out in these Terms and Conditions. If you require any changes, please make sure that you ask for these to be put in writing. In that way, we can avoid any problems surrounding what we and you are required to do.
    6. 5.6 Certain Goods are the subject of a legally prescribed age restriction and must be collected from our premises. You are therefore required to confirm that you are over the age of 18. You acknowledge and accept that we may carry out further checks to verify your age and proof of age may need to be provided to us upon collection or delivery of the Goods before we are able to supply you with the Goods. We will notify you if your order contains any such Goods.
  6. 6 Delivery
    1. 6.1 The Website is only for the promotion of our products in the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and Isle of Man (the Territory). We do not guarantee that we will deliver to customers outside of the Territory. Additional delivery charges may be applicable for certain Goods or for deliveries to certain locations within the Territory. Such charges will be made clear to you before the Goods are supplied. If you require delivery outside of the Territory, please contact us to discuss whether we are able to deliver to the required delivery location and, if so, what the delivery charges will be. We reserve the right to refuse to accept orders from, or deliver products to, customers outside of the Territory.
    2. 6.2 We will deliver the Goods to the address specified for delivery by you in your order. It is important that this address is accurate and you are responsible for ensuring that it is.
    3. 6.3 We aim to provide you with an accurate date on which the Goods will be ready for collection or delivery (as applicable). All delivery times and dates are estimates. We will try our best to meet the delivery estimates we have given you but shall not be responsible for any failure to deliver Goods within these time frames. We will let you know if we cannot deliver your products within 30 days of the date of your order, and give you the opportunity to either wait for the Goods or cancel your order.
      1. (a) All delivery times and dates are estimates. This includes any indication of the length of time it will take us to deliver your order (or make it available for collection) that we give you, both as you progress through our shopping pages before you place your order, and when we confirm your order
      2. (b) Whilst we will try our best to meet the delivery estimates we have given you, we shall not be responsible for any failure to deliver Goods within these timeframes. We will let you know if we cannot deliver your Goods or make the Goods available for you to collect within 30 days of the date of your order, and give you the opportunity to choose to either cancel your order or give us a new deadline for delivery or to make the Goods available for collection (which must be reasonable) and comply with any revised indication that we give you of the date by which we expect to deliver or make available the Goods). You can cancel your order if we do not meet the new deadline
      3. (c) If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery, we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Goods and their delivery and, if the Goods have been delivered to you or collected by you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them and we will pay the costs of this.
    4. 6.4 We will not be liable for any loss you incur, whether financial or otherwise, resulting directly or indirectly from our delay or failure to meet the estimated delivery or collection date. We strongly recommend that you do not book fitters or tradesmen until the Goods have actually been delivered and checked by you.
    5. 6.5 When Goods are to be delivered and a delivery date has been arranged, you must ensure that someone is available at the address to accept the delivery. All deliveries must be received and signed for by a person over the age of 18.
    6. 6.6 We will always try to make one single delivery to you wherever possible to minimise any inconvenience. This means that when an order contains a mix of products with different delivery lead times, the longest lead time will apply to the whole order. This does not apply where you have specified that you will accept multiple deliveries during the order process on the Website. We reserve the right to deliver by way of instalments.
    7. 6.7 If we are unable to deliver your Goods on arrival at the delivery address for any reason, we will retain possession of the Goods and attempt to contact you for instructions. You have 30 days to take delivery of the Goods from the day on which we contact you for instructions, unless we reasonably consider the Goods are too bulky or valuable for us to store for 30 days, in which case you will have 15 days from the date on which we contact you for instructions. After this deadline has expired (including where redelivery is arranged and you are unavailable to take the redelivery), we may cancel the order and refund the purchase price, excluding any delivery charges. An additional charge for any return or re-delivery will be made in accordance with the standard delivery charges on our Website.
  7. 7 Loss or Damage to Goods
    1. 7.1 We request that you examine the Goods on delivery or on collection (as the case may be) as soon as reasonably possible to do so.
    2. 7.2 Where you wish to return Goods because they are damaged or defective, we request that you do so in accordance with our Return of Goods Policy.
  8. 8 Price
    1. 8.1 The price of the Goods and our standard charges for delivery shall be the prices given on the Website from time to time and as confirmed by us in our email sent to you in accordance with Clause 5.1 acknowledging that an order has been received. Such e-mail shall include any additional costs in respect of carriage, insurance, and/or storage (less any discount we allow). As stated in Clause 6.1 above, additional delivery charges may be applicable for certain Goods or for deliveries to certain locations within the Territory. We will notify you where such charges apply before the Goods are supplied and give you the opportunity to either accept the additional charges or cancel your order.
    2. 8.2 Prices of Goods or delivery charges as given on the Website are liable to change at any time. In addition, while we will try to ensure that all prices in our literature or on our website are accurate, errors may occur or the price may change for reasons beyond our control. If we do need to increase the price of the Goods (whether because we have discovered an error or for other reasons) then we may do so as long as we inform you as soon as possible and in any event before we notify you we have dispatched the Goods to you in accordance with Clause 5.2 or made them available in accordance with clause 5.3. In these circumstances, we will give you the option of either reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it.
    3. 8.3 We will not change the price of our Goods, in relation to orders for which we have already contacted you to confirm the dispatch of the Goods in accordance with Clause 5.2 or where we have notified you that the Goods can be collected in accordance with Clause 5.3.
    4. 8.4 If we are unable to contact you pursuant to Clause 8.2 above using the contact details you provided during the order process we will treat the order as cancelled. In these circumstances if we do contact you pursuant to Clause 8.2 and you decide to cancel your order then, if you have already paid for the Goods, we will give you a full refund.
    5. 8.5 The price of the Goods is inclusive of VAT.
    6. 8.6 Payment for all Goods and delivery charges must be made by credit or debit card at the time the order is placed in the case of orders for Goods to be delivered, or at the time of collection in the case of orders for Goods to be collected (as the case may be). The Website will specify which cards we will accept from time to time. If it is not possible to obtain the full payment for the Goods and any delivery charges from the payment details you provided then the Contract can be cancelled by us and any further deliveries may be suspended.
  9. 9 Risk and Property
    1. 9.1 The Goods will be your responsibility:
      1. (a) where Goods are to be collected from our premises, from the time you collect the Goods from us; or

    2. 9.2 You own the Goods once we have received payment in full and cleared funds for all sums due from you under the Contract, including all applicable delivery charges.
  10. 10 Events Outside our Control
    • If we are unable to supply you with the Goods you have ordered for any reason beyond our control and it is necessary to make alternative arrangements or offer you a substitute product, we will notify you and you will have the option to either accept the replacement product or cancel your order and receive a full refund.
  11. 11 Warranty and Liability
    1. 11.1 Subject to Clause 11.2, we offer a warranty to you that any Goods purchased from us through the Website will, on delivery and for the following 12 months, conform in all material respects with their description, be of satisfactory quality, and be reasonably fit for all the purposes for which goods of that kind are commonly supplied.

      2. (b) any attempt made by you or any third party to remedy a defect before the Goods in question have been returned to us for inspection (if so required).

      3. (c) Goods that have been fitted; and
      4. (d) any Goods which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
    2. 12.2 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date on which we notify you either that we have dispatched the Goods in accordance with Clause 5.2 or that they are available for collection in accordance with Clause 5.3. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:

If you are e-mailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us.
    5. 12.4 If you cancel your Contract we will:
      1. (a) refund you the price you paid for the Goods. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way that goes beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods (e.g. it goes beyond the sort of handling that might reasonably be allowed in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
      2. (b) refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method).
      3. (c) make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:
        1. (i) if you have received the Goods and we have not offered to collect them from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Goods back from you or, if earlier, 14 days from the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Goods back to us;
        2. (ii) if you have not received the Goods or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.

    7. 12.6 If the Goods have been delivered to you or collected by you before you decide to cancel your Contract:
      1. (a) then you must return them to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract.

        1. (i) email on online.support@wolseley.co.uk; or
        2. (ii) telephoning 0344 891 0196; or
        3. (iii) telephoning the branch from which the Goods were despatched or collected, details of which are found on the advice note accompanying the Goods to tell us that the Goods are being returned and to obtain details of the branch / address that the Goods should be returned to. Where Goods have been damaged whilst in your possession we shall not be obliged to accept the return of those Goods. In such circumstances, we will notify you that the Goods are available for re-collection or re-delivery for which you shall be liable for any reasonable delivery charges incurred.
      2. (b) unless the Goods are faulty or not as described (in this case, see Clause 12.7), you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Goods to us. If the Goods cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Goods to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery;
      3. (c) we request that you return all the original packaging where possible to do so and that you supply the advice note accompanying the Goods or other proof of purchase (and for the avoidance of doubt a copy of the email confirming details of the order will not be sufficient for these purposes); and

    8. 12.7 Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Goods that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Goods that are faulty or not as described. If the Goods are faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the Contract (or to get the Goods repaired or replaced or to get some or all of your money back). These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this Clause 12 or anything else in these Terms and Conditions. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject Goods you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you.
