Summary of terms

When you buy from us you are agreeing that:

Our contract with you

A legally binding contract between us and you will be created upon our acceptance of your order.

How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we provide you with a written confirmation of order usually either in-store or by email.

Sometimes we reject orders. Sometimes we reject orders. This might be because the goods are out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements, because we can’t verify your age (where the product is age-restricted), because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product, because you are located outside of delivery or supply areas, because you have supplied offensive or inappropriate text or images for products that may be personalised, or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified. When this happens, we will let you know as soon as possible and refund any sums you have paid.

Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

Your responsibilities

We may need information from you. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you, for example, PO Numbers for the goods purchased, delivery address if different than the invoice address, any special delivery instructions, or any other information relevant to the execution of the order and delivery of the goods. If we need any of the above, we will explain this to you at the time you place your order, and ask for this information from you.

Providing us with your equipment for the purposes of measuring, design and fitting services. We may require you to (or you may wish to) provide us with equipment (whether belonging to you or a third-party) in order for us to provide goods or services to you. This may include, by way of example, IT Equipment, audiovisual or other devices, TVs, monitors, speakers, musical instruments or equipment, tools, sound systems, or cabling, whether owned by you or a third party. Such equipment may be needed to allow us to take measurements or for the purposes of fitting it into our products in accordance with your specifications.

You (or the relevant third-party) shall retain ownership of any such equipment. We will not be liable for the condition of such equipment or any damage to it or loss of it unless such loss or damage is to the external surface of the equipment and was caused by the negligence of our employees or agents. If damage or loss arises as a result of our negligence, our total liability to you shall not exceed the extent of insurance cover we have in relation to such claims. You should at all times ensure that you take out and maintain appropriate insurance cover yourself for any equipment you provide to us.

If you provide us with any equipment, we will carry out a visual inspection of it at the time it is given to us. You acknowledge that we do not carry out any operational, mechanical, or electrical inspection a of any equipment you provide us with. We will only use your equipment for the purposes of measuring and fitting services and not for any functional purpose. You must ensure that any equipment provided to us is in good repair and condition.

What will happen if you do not give required information to us. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

Changes to your order, products or services

Your right to make changes. If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered, please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary because of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see below: Your rights to end the contract).

Our rights to make changes. Our rights to make changes depend on whether the change is minor or more significant.

  • Minor changes. We may change our products or services to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements or to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements. These changes should not affect your use of the product or the quality of services, but we will let you know if any such changes would have an impact. These might include, for example, variations in paint coatings and appearance, or a change in material (laminate, plywood, foam, fabric and other) specification which might look visually different but not impact how the product is used or it`s durability.
  • More significant changes. Any significant changes to any product or services will be discussed with you prior to production. You have the right to cancel your order if the proposed changes and reasons for them are not “Significant changes” includes (but is not limited to): changes to the internal and/or external size of the final product, a change in materials which are completely different to the originally agreed ones, or a change in colour and/or style of the final appearance of the product.

Price and payment

When you must pay and how you must pay. If you order products from us online, you will be required to pay at the time you place your order. If you order from us in any other way, such as by email or by phone, you will be asked to pay upfront when we confirm acceptance of your order. You must pay for our products before we deliver them or you collect them. You must pay for services before they are commenced.

We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product or services, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

We charge interest on late payments. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% per annum above the Bank of England Minimum Lending Rate. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.

Where to find the price for the product. The prices of our products and services will be the prices indicated on our website, as told to you in-store, or as set out in any quote provided to you. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices advised to you is correct. However please see below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product or services you order.

What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products or services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid, and require the return of any goods provided to you.

We charge you if you don't give us information we need or do preparatory work as agreed with us. We charge you additional sums if you don't give us information we've asked for about how we can access your property for delivery, installation or to provide services, or if you don't do preparatory work for installation, as agreed with us. For example, we might need to re-deliver on another vehicle or with extra manpower or reschedule services.

What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong, please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.

Supply & Delivery

Delivery costs. You will be responsible for delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be included in your quote, order acknowledgment or otherwise as told to you or provided to you in-store.

When we will provide the products.

  • Supply of products. We will usually aim to deliver the product/s to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order. Any goods that are made-to-order, outsourced and/or made overseas are exempt from the 30 day delivery period. Your estimated product despatch date will be shown or your order acknowledgment. You will be informed in advance if there are any delays. Delivery terms and conditions can be found on our website and are available on request.
  • If the products are one-off services. We will begin the services on the date agreed with you during the order process. The estimated completion date for the services is as told to you during the order process.
  • If the products are ongoing services. We will supply the services to you until the services are completed, or until you or we end the contract in accordance with these terms.

Collection by you. If you have asked to collect the product from our premises, you can collect them from us at any time during our working hours of 09:00 to 17:00 on weekdays (excluding public holidays).

If you are not at home when the product is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the product cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will contact you informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the product from our premises.

If you do not re-arrange delivery. If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract.

Your legal rights if we deliver goods late. Delivery is classed as late if the delivery of the goods has been delayed by more than 4 weeks after the pre-agreed estimated latest delivery date stated on your order acknowledgment. If we miss the delivery deadline for any goods, you may treat the contract as at an end straight away but only if any of the following apply:

  • we have refused to deliver the goods; or
  • delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances) and you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.

Ending the contract for late delivery. If you choose to treat the contract as at an end for late delivery in accordance with the above right, you can cancel your order for any products not already delivered. If your order has been partially delivered, you can only cancel your order for the undelivered products (and not for any products already delivered) unless splitting the products up would significantly reduce their value. If you cancel your order in accordance with this paragraph, we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled products and their delivery.  If you are cancelling an order for products that have been delivered to you, you must either return those products 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. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call customer services on 01945 427000 or email us at sales@mossman-trunks.co.uk for a return label or to arrange collection.

If you do not wish to treat the contract as at an end straight away, or if do not have the right to do so, we will agree a new deadline for delivery with you (which must be reasonable). Your will then have a right to treat the contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline in the above circumstances.

We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products or services is delayed by an event outside our control, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay, you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products or services you have paid for but not received yet. Substantial delay is classed a delay which is 4 weeks and more after the latest estimated despatch date shown your order acknowledgment.

When you become responsible for the goods. A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us, or from the time you, or a carrier organised by you, collect it from us.

When you own goods. You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full.

Your right to change your mind

Your legal right to change your mind (distance contracts only). For most of our products bought online, by mail order, over the telephone or on your doorstep, you have a legal right to change your mind about your purchase and receive a refund of what you paid for it, including the delivery costs. This is subject to some conditions, as set out below.

When you can't change your mind. You can't change your mind about an order for:

  • services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
  • products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
  • bespoke or personalised goods, or goods manufactured to your specifications, such as in colours or finishes other than our standard black or with hardware customisation, or which are clearly personalised;
  • goods which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery; and products which are likely to deteriorate within the 14 day period.

The deadline for changing your mind. If you change your mind, you must let us know no later than 14 days after:

  • the day we deliver your product, if it is goods. If the goods are for regular delivery (for example, a subscription), you can only change your mind after the first delivery. If the goods are split into several deliveries over different days, the period runs from the day after the last delivery.
  • the day we confirm we have accepted your order, if it is for a service. Once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind if you asked us to commence those services during the 14 day cancellation period.

How to let us know. To let us know you want to change your mind, contact our Customer Service Team on 01945 427000 or email us at sales@mossman-trunks.co.uk You can also write to us at Broadend Industrial Estate, Broadend Road, Wisbech PE14 7BQ.

You must return the product at your own cost. If your product is goods, you must return it to us within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind. Returns are at your own cost unless we offered free returns when you bought the goods. You can bring the product to our premises at Broadend Industrial Estate, Broadend Road, Wisbech PE14 7BQ, or send the product back to us, using an established delivery service. If you do this, you should keep a receipt or other evidence from the delivery service that proves you have sent it and when you sent it. If you don’t do this and we don’t receive the goods at all or within a reasonable time we won't refund you the price. For help with returns, including our collection arrangements for goods which can't be posted, please contact our Customer Service Team (as above).

You will need your email receipt and details of the payment method you used to place the order.

We only refund standard delivery costs. We don't refund any extra you have paid for express delivery or delivery at a particular time.

You must pay for services you received before you change your mind. If you bought a service, we don't refund you for the time you were receiving it before you told us you'd changed your mind.

We reduce your refund if you have used or damaged a product. All goods must be returned in their original packaging, with any labels still attached, and otherwise in a condition enabling us to sell the product as new. If you handle the product in a way which would not be acceptable in-store, we reduce your refund, to compensate us for its reduced value. For example, we reduce your refund if the product's condition is not "as new", price tags have been removed, the product-branded packaging is damaged, or accessories are missing. In some cases, because of the way you have treated the product, no refund may be due. Our Customer Service Team can advise you on whether we're likely to reduce your refund.

When and how we refund you. If your product is a service or goods that haven't been delivered or that we're collecting from you, we refund you as soon as possible and within 14 days of you telling us you've changed your mind. If your product is goods that you're sending back to us, we refund you within 14 days of receiving them back from you (or receiving evidence you've sent them to us). We refund you by the method you used for payment. We don't charge a fee for the refund.

You can end an on-going contract. We tell you when and how you can end an on-going contract with us (for example, for regular services or a subscription for goods) during the order process and we confirm this information to you in writing after we've accepted your order. If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Service Team (as above).

We can suspend supply, withdraw products, or end our contract with you

We can suspend the supply of a product. We do this to deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes, update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or make changes to the product.

We will let you know, may adjust the price, and may allow you to terminate. We contact you in advance to tell you we're suspending supply unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we suspend the product, we adjust the price so you don't pay for it while its suspended.

  • you don't, within a reasonable time, either allow us to deliver the product or services to you or collect the product from us.

Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

We don't compensate you for all losses caused by us or our products or services.

We're responsible for losses you suffer caused by us breaking this contract unless the loss is:

  • Unexpected. It was not obvious that it would happen and nothing you said to us before we accepted your order meant we should have expected it (so, in the law, the loss was unforeseeable).
  • Caused by a delaying event outside our control. As long as we have taken the steps set out in the section “We're not responsible for delays outside our control”.
  • Something you could have avoided by taking reasonable action.
  • A business loss. If you are a consumer, we only supply the products to you for your domestic and private use. If you use the products or services for any business, commercial or re-sale purpose, our liability for any loss you suffer in connection with your trade, business, craft or profession is limited, as described in our Business Customer Terms and Conditions.

We are not.

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. Nothing in these terms shall exclude our liability for:

  • death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors;
  • fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;
  • breach of your legal rights in relation to the products including the right to receive products which are (a) as described and match information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; (b) of satisfactory quality; (c) fit for any particular purpose made known to us; and (d) supplied with reasonable skill and care; and for defective products under the Consumer Rights Act 2015.

How we may use your personal information

How we may use your personal information.  We will only use your personal information as set out in our Privacy Policy (see https://www.mossman-trunks.co.uk/content/8-privacy-policy).

Other important terms

We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.

You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. However, you may transfer our guarantee to a person who has acquired the product. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the relevant item or property.

Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, except as set out above in respect of our guarantee. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.

If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you, but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law, and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.

You have several options for resolving disputes with us

Our complaints policy. Our Customer Service Team will do their best to resolve any problems you have with us or our products or services.

Resolving disputes without going to court. Alternative dispute resolution is an optional process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. Mediation is another alternative form of dispute resolution which involves use of a mediator to try and come to a resolution.

You can go to court. These terms are governed by English law and wherever you live you can bring claims against us in the English courts. If you live in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland, you can also bring claims against us in the courts of the country you live in. We can claim against you in the courts of the country you live in.

17. Severance.
