Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions are for residential customers only. For trade / commercial terms please see here.
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.
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.
If you select the Next Day Delivery option (when available) in the basket, the order needs to be placed by 12pm (noon) so we can make, pack and have the carrier collect the order so it can arrive the following working day. We do not have weekend or timed deliveries. Any orders placed after 12pm with the Next Day Delivery option selected will be delivered in two working days eg ordering Next Day after noon on Monday, the delivery will be on Wednesday. There is an additional charge for the Next Day Delivery service which will be shown in the basket and depends on the items ordered.
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 any non-deliveries (i.e. you are not available to, or do not, accept the delivery at the time of delivery), and for any redeliveries by the delivery company made outside their normal terms.
For all deliveries that we receive back to us after more than one non-delivery to the specified delivery address, will have to be collected from our offices by you, or by a nominated courier paid directly by you, after you have settled any possible outstanding fees from the delivery company for the non-deliveries. We will not resend these orders out for delivery again using our couriers. Please check your order confirmation to ensure the delivery address is correct to save unecessary time and expense later.
If you ask the delivery company to use an alternative method of delivery, for example leaving in a safe place or with a neighbour, we are not responsible for the parcels or their contents once the consignment has been delivered as you requested. This does not affect your statutory rights for the products.
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.
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.
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.
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.
