5.9 In some circumstances (for example because the delivery address is particularly remote, where the Product ordered is a safe or furniture and access is difficult) a higher delivery charge may be applicable.

2. SERVICE AVAILABILITY

Our site is only intended for use by people who require delivery in Ireland. We do not accept orders for delivery outside those locations.

3. YOUR STATUS

By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:

3.1 You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and

3.2 You are at least 18 years old.

4. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED

4.1 Before an order is placed you will be given an opportunity to verify and correct the products included in your order. After placing an order via the Website, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. This acknowledgement is for your convenience only and this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail confirmation of our acceptance of your order (the “Order Acceptance”). The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Order Acceptance, whether or not you receive such email.

4.2 The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Order Acceptance. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Order Acceptance.

5. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY

5.1 Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Order Acceptance or, if no delivery date is specified, then within a reasonable time of the date of the Order Acceptance, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

5.2 We only deliver to Ireland.

5.3 We do not deliver to PO Box addresses.

5.4 When Products are in stock, if you place an order before 5.00pm on a working day we will aim to deliver your order on the following working day. Furniture and safes are usually subject to different delivery periods and we aim to deliver our vouchers within 7 working days of you placing your order.

5.5 We may substitute Products within your order with equivalent Products (for example a red stapler in place of a blue stapler). If you do not want to accept the substituted product please return them to us in accordance with condition 8.1.

5.6 If we cannot deliver your order within the period specified in your Order Acceptance then we will contact you and you may choose to cancel your order and we will provide you, in those circumstances with a full refund.

5.7 We will always need a signature of delivery of all Products.

5.8 As a general rule delivery is free for orders over €48.78 (excluding VAT) and for orders under €48.78 (excluding VAT) our delivery charge is €8(excluding vat).

5.9 In some circumstances (for example because the delivery address is particularly remote, where the Product ordered is a safe or furniture and access is difficult) a higher delivery charge may be applicable. We will inform you of the delivery charges at the time of your order or email you asking you to confirm whether or not you want to proceed with an order if higher delivery charges are to apply.

5.10 Please note that if you have ordered a safe or furniture or other large of heavy items that our couriers are only insured to deliver to the ground floor of buildings. If you are ordering this types of Product we will ask you questions regarding access, however, it is your responsibility to ensure that there is sufficient access (for example door widths) to enable delivery of the Product.

6. RISK AND TITLE

The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership will pass to you when we receive payment in full for the Products ordered.

7. PRICE AND PAYMENT

7.2 These prices exclude VAT and exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due.

7.3 Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an Order Acceptance.

7.4 Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.

7.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an Order Acceptance, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.

7.6 Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card unless you have a credit facility with us. We accept payment with Mastercard, Maestro, Visa, Visa Electron, Amex and Solo.
