    2. If your order cannot be fulfilled you will be offered an alternative or given a full refund.
    3. If an order is received for a discontinued product we will automatically provide you with the up-to-date equivalent, providing it is available and the same price as the discontinued model. If this is not the case we will contact you.
  5. Delivery
    1. We deliver to most of mainland Great Britain with the exception of some outlying areas. (See our delivery page for exceptions).
    2. Standard delivery by Marks Electrical is free for orders of any value; however we may charge for delivery by third party couriers and for extras such as two man delivery.
    3. Delivery options and costs will be clearly displayed once you have entered your delivery postcode.
    4. Upon delivery a signature will be required.
    5. The following delivery information applies if you purchase an item from us that is delivered by one of our own vans. If you purchase a small appliance that is delivered by DPD, please see DPD deliveries below
    6. We will contact you with an estimated delivery date. However delivery dates may be delayed by events outside our control (e.g. due to sudden stock shortages, manufacturing delays, or delivery vehicle breakdowns), which is why we strongly advise all customers not to book fitters until they have received the relevant products, as no claims will be accepted. We will contact you as soon as possible to let you know if there is a delay and will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. We shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused by any delay in delivering the products.
    7. The day before delivery we endeavour to advise all customers of an estimated 2 hour delivery timeslot.
      • You will be notified of your 2 hour delivery timeslot by email and SMS between 7pm and 8pm the day before delivery providing you have given us sufficient contact details.
      • If you have chosen our same day delivery service, you will be notified of your 2 hour delivery timeslot by email and SMS between 5.30pm and 6pm the evening of delivery providing you have given us sufficient contact details.
      • You cannot choose your own delivery timeslot as these are allocated by our automated route planning system. Once issued your timeslot cannot be changed.
      • Timeslots are estimates, actual delivery times can be earlier or later due to circumstances beyond our control. This means someone must be present at the delivery address all day and able to accept the products upon arrival of our delivery vehicle.
    8. If you find you cannot keep to the delivery date you must notify us before 12 noon one working day before delivery.
    9. Failed delivery charges (see the table of charges below) may be applied in the event that a delivery fails due to - but not limited to - any of the following reasons:
      • You cancel the order after the point at which the products have been loaded for delivery at our warehouse.
      • You provide insufficient/incorrect contact details or an incorrect delivery address thereby resulting in our inability to contact you or otherwise make a successful delivery.
      • You refuse delivery upon arrival of our delivery vehicle.
      • There is no-one at the delivery address to accept delivery. You must ensure that you can be available all day on your chosen day of delivery.
      • There are parking restrictions or other access problems (e.g. stairs or narrow doorways) which you failed to notify our telesales operators of. By booking your own delivery date at the checkout you are agreeing that there are no such access or parking restrictions which we should be aware of.
    10. We will only deliver to ground floor properties (unless a lift is available); this can include a maximum of 4 steps. Certain products may be delivered up or down a flight of stairs at additional cost. Call us to find out if the items you require can be delivered in this way.
    11. Whilst our own drivers are happy to wheel your product into an unobstructed room of your choice, we cannot be held responsible for any damage incurred. It is your responsibility to protect any floor coverings to prevent damage while the products are being situated in the property.
    12. We do not allow customers under any circumstances to assist the driver with delivery or handling of any of our products.
    13. The products will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the products to the address given by you.
    14. DPD Deliveries - DPD will try and deliver to a neighbour if no one is in or will contact you to arrange for delivery the next day. If they cannot deliver your product they will take it to their local collection point.
      See DPD's How Can We Help? page for further details.
  6. Damaged and Faulty Goods
    1. We will supply products that are in conformance with this contract and nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
    2. If you discover that the products which you have received are faulty, you should notify us immediately. You have the right to a full refund if a fault is discovered within 30 days of delivery.
  7. Unwanted Products
    1. Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, you have the right to cancel your order within 14 days after receipt of the products, without giving a reason. You may use the Model Cancellation Form attached at the Schedule to these terms (which you can send to us by email or post to the address above) but you do not have to.
    2. You have the choice of returning the products via your own means (at your own cost to Marks Electrical Ltd, Boston Road, Leicester, LE4 1AU), or requesting that we collect them. We will charge you the direct cost to us of collection which is £49.99 per item. We may however choose to reduce the collection charge if you are purchasing another product from us.
    3. You have a duty of care while the products are in your possession and we reserve the right to charge you for any damage that may have occurred during this period.
    4. We reserve the right to apply re-handling charges for returned items under some circumstances:
      • The products received back are 'as new' but incomplete; i.e. missing components and/or accessories.
      • Any other handling including installation of the products which has diminished the value of the products e.g. damage or wear and tear. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the products and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
    5. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and within 14 days of the cancellation date.
  8. Additional Services
    1. If requested we will collect old appliances for recycling on a like-for-like basis when we deliver your new item(s). We make a charge for this service to cover collection and transportation.
    2. Additional services which have been ordered but are then declined upon delivery are non-refundable, as we allocate space for these services on our delivery vehicles. This includes 'Old Product Collection', 'Unwrap and Remove Packaging' and 'Two Man Delivery' services.
  9. Installation
    1. We offer an installation service in some areas. Please see our installation terms and conditions for more details about this service.
    2.

      • to notify you in the unlikely event of a manufacturer's safety notice or product recall;
      • if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us.
