Terms and Conditions

Guarantee
All products come with the full manufacturer's warranty, unless otherwise stated. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

Once the product is fitted, the product is then covered by the manufacturer's warranty. Sockets and Switches cannot be held responsible for any errors in the installation of the product.

Prices
We review prices regularly to ensure that the prices on the page are accurate and up to date. This means that prices shown on the site can alter without notice.

The Price Beater offer is valid at the time of purchase, and cannot be applied retrospectively. Any prices for comparison must be accompanied by valid evidence.

Ordering
Please ensure that you are ordering precisely what you require to avoid any unnecessary expense later.

Delivery
Delivery is to any address with a UK postcode including The Isle Of Man and The Channel Islands. For some locations e.g. Highlands of Scotland, Northern Ireland, The Isle Of Man and The Channel Islands an additional delivery charge will apply. If you live outside the UK or when access to the property is not straight forward, we may still be able to deliver, however an additional delivery charge will apply. Again please contact us for further information.

The goods will be left by the driver within the property, where possible on the ground floor of the house. If you require delivery to anywhere other than the ground floor please contact us to check whether this is possible. It will depend on the items you are ordering and the level of access.

The delivery is normally in the standard working week e.g. Monday to Friday. Deliveries outside these days are at the discretion of the delivery company and there will be an additional charge for this service, which we reserve the right to pass on to you. If you are not available on the agreed date and the delivery company cannot contact you, we again reserve the right to pass on to you any fees we are charged for a non delivery/redelivery by the delivery company.

Deliveries are carried out by our transport, via independent carriers or by the manufacturers themselves. Some orders may be delivered in more than one drop.

Delivery Security
Delivery should be to the address to where the credit card is billed. This is to protect you as well as us. If there is a genuine reason for delivering to a different address e.g. if you are moving house, then we can deliver to your new address, please state the reason when ordering in the notes box. It is important to inform your credit card\debit card company that you are ordering goods to a different address other than the invoice address. Alterations to the address may add to the delivery time of your order.

As a security measure before the goods are released, the drivers may ask for additional identification that will link you to the delivery address e.g. driving licence, utility bill.

Access
We reserve the right to refuse delivery if you have not informed us about any conditions that may affect the delivery access or, when the delivery company arrives they determine it is unsafe to make the delivery. You will have the choice of leaving the products on the ground floor\in the property, or the products will be taken away and any failed delivery charges that occur from the delivery company will be passed on to you.

Inspection
We very strongly recommend that on delivery you thoroughly inspect the goods before signing the delivery acceptance slip. If inspection is not possible before signing for the items, e.g. a delivery by courier, please accept the goods and inspect the items as soon as possible after signing for them. In the unlikely event of obvious damage occurring in transit and you have not signed for the items, please refuse the delivery, returning the damaged goods with the driver, making a note of the problem on the delivery slip. In either case please report any damages, faults or errors in the order to us immediately and then confirm the information to us in writing. A new plate will be ordered for you. You can email or write to us as per the contact details section.

We cannot refund or exchange any items which are signed for, have not have been reported as damaged within three working days and then subsequently reported as damaged after this period. Such damage, which could be seen on a reasonable initial inspection, for example and not exclusively, dented or scratched plates, will not be accepted. This does not relate to any fault\problem found later that could not be seen easily on a reasonable initial inspection. This does not affect your guarantee or statuary rights.

Installation
The prices quoted are for purchase\delivery of products and does not include any installation/fitting.

We cannot accept liability for damages or errors if goods have been fitted/used.

We recommend that you do not arrange dates for any installers\fitters or remove/discard any old electrical equipment until the NEW equipment has arrived and been checked for damages.

ALL electrical work MUST be carried out by a QUALIFIED electrician.

Try Before You Buy
Try It Before You Buy It items are designed to be opened but not fitted. If you decide that the item is not for you, then the cost of returning the item is at your own expense. The item must not be fitted or damaged in anyway. Once we receive the item back, and have inspected it, you will receive a refund for that item.

Cancellations and Returns
You can cancel your order at any time from point of ordering up to the delivery date, and then within 14 working days from the day after the date of receiving the goods, without giving a reason. You can do this by phone, email or in writing as per the contact details section. The goods must be returned in their original packaging in perfect saleable condition. Returning the goods is at your own expense and this is non-refundable. If Sockets and Switches have to incur the cost of the collecting the goods for whatever reason, a deduction will be made from the refund to cover the direct cost of collecting the goods. The full amount for the returned goods, minus any deduction for collection, will be refunded within 30 days of the date of cancellation notification using the original method of payment. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

If you wish to return an item that is not an error on our part, and/or the situation is not covered by the above paragraph on cancellations, the goods must be returned in their original packaging in saleable condition. Any items returned damaged will incur the full cost of the item. Please ensure that you are ordering precisely what you require to avoid any unnecessary expense later.

Payment
Credit Cards - We accept Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Switch and Delta. When you place your order we take full payment for the goods. Due to increased security by the credit card companies, your transaction may be held if it felt to be outside your normal spending patterns and your bank may contact you to check that you have placed the order. To avoid this delay please inform the credit card\debit card companies that you are ordering any order with a high value so they will expect the transaction. If for some reason there is going to be an extended delay in delivery you can have the opportunity to cancel the order with a full refund, or we can credit your card until the goods are available. Otherwise your order is committed and delivery will take place without further reference to us apart from contacting you with a delivery date.
