Consumer Terms & Conditions
Consumer T & C's
Please note: These Terms of Sale apply to customers who are consumers (that is, customers who are purchasing goods other than in the course of business). If you are purchasing goods in the course of business, please see our Terms of Sale for Trade Customers.
1. The contract between us
Before your order can be accepted, we (Peeks of Bournemouth Limited) must
1.1 an order from you by fax, telephone, post, email or via this website; and
1.2 if you have a credit account with Peeks: payment of any deposit required by Peeks; or
1.3 if you do not have a credit account with Peeks: payment of the whole price for the goods that you order (including all applicable VAT) as well as all applicable charges for handling and delivery and any customs, duties and insurance in the case of overseas delivery.
Where you submit your order via this website, we will acknowledge receipt of your order by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address you provide in your order. Such acknowledgement of receipt is not confirmation that your order has been accepted. Acceptance of your order will be effected by delivery of the goods to you. No legally binding contract shall come into place until that time.
2. Price and Payment
2.1 The prices payable for the goods that you order are the VAT inclusive prices for the goods as set out on this website.
2.2 You will be required to pay extra charges for handling and delivery and (if the goods are to be delivered overseas) for all customs, duties, taxes and insurance.
2.3 If you did not pay all amounts due at the time of ordering, we will invoice you for such amounts. You must pay such amounts within 30 days of the date of our invoice. All such amounts must be paid by cheque payable to ‘Peeks of Bournemouth Ltd’, by postal order or by credit card.
3. Right for you to cancel your contract
3.1 You may cancel your contract with us for the goods you order at any time up to the end of the seventh working day from the date you receive the ordered goods. You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract nor will you have to pay any penalty.
3.2 To cancel your contract you must notify us in writing by post to: Peeks of Bournemouth Ltd, Reid Street, Christchurch BH23 2BT.
3.3 If you have received the goods before you cancel your contract then you must send the goods back to our postal address at your own cost and risk (except in the circumstances described in clause 4.1 below). If you cancel your contract but we have already processed the goods for delivery you must not unpack the goods when they are received by you and you must send the goods back to us at our postal address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.
3.4 Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, any sum debited to us from your credit card will be re-credited to your account as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of your cancellation PROVIDED THAT the goods in question are returned by you and received by us in the condition they were in when delivered to you. If you do not return the goods delivered to you or do not pay the costs of delivery, we shall be entitled to deduct the direct costs of recovering the goods from the amount to be re-credited to you.
4. Cancellation or substitution of goods by us
4.1 All items in the Peeks catalogues and on this website are advertised for sale subject to availability. If the goods ordered are unavailable we may supply you with substitute goods or cancel our contract with you. Any substitute goods will be of equivalent quality and price but if you do not wish to accept them you may cancel the contract between us and return such goods and we will re-imburse you on request for the cost of doing so provided such costs are reasonably incurred.
4.2 We also reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if:
4.2.1 we do not deliver to your area; or
4.2.2 one or more of the goods you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information received by us from our suppliers.
4.3 If we do cancel your contract we will notify you by email and will re-credit to your account any sum deducted by us from your credit card as soon as possible but in any event within 30 days of your order. We will not be obliged to offer any additional compensation for disappointment suffered.
5. Delivery of goods to you
5.1 We will deliver the goods ordered by you to the delivery address you give us when you order the goods.
5.2 Delivery will be made as soon as possible after your order is accepted and in any event within 30 days of your order. We will do our best to meet any delivery dates specified but cannot guarantee to do so or be legally bound to do so.
5.3 Goods will remain our property until paid for in full even after they have been delivered to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.
