Making a Contract with us
An order can be placed with us through our website, by telephone or by visiting our premises.
When you place an order with us you are making an offer to buy goods and payment is requested at that stage to enable the order to be processed.
When we receive your order with payment through our website, we will send you an Order Confirmation which confirms acceptance of your order. At that stage, a contract has been made between us.
The Order Confirmation is given a unique number and provides details of shipping and billing addresses together with a description of the goods purchased, delivery charges and the total price inclusive of VAT.
Our receipted VAT Invoice and a copy of our Terms & Conditions will follow by post on the same day.
Our VAT Invoice will be given the same number as your Order Confirmation and will also provide the date of the transaction, our VAT registration number, the price exclusive of VAT, delivery charges, the VAT amount, and the total price inclusive of VAT.
During the ordering process, your attention is drawn to our Terms and Conditions which are readily accessible on our website. You can also request a quote from us on our website prior to placing an order. The language used on our website is English and once you have chosen the goods you wish to order, you will be asked to “Add to Cart” where you can calculate shipping costs. When your shopping is complete, you click “Proceed to Checkout” which takes you to our secure checkout by following the guided steps. You can edit or remove items or modify to change options in your Cart by clicking the relevant buttons and at all stages of the process our telephone number is clearly displayed if you require assistance.
For orders received by telephone or by visiting our premises, verbal acceptance will be provided on payment and our receipted VAT Invoice and a copy of our Terms & Conditions will follow by post once the order is processed which is normally on the same day.
Customers making enquiries by telephone or by visiting our premises may also request a quote and a copy of our Terms & Conditions prior to placing an order.
We use secure payment methods and payment can be made by cheque or debit or credit card. Online customers have the option to pay by card through Paypal or Worldpay. We take all reasonable precautions to keep your payment secure but unless we are negligent, we cannot be held liable for any losses caused as a result of unauthorised access to information provided by you. Payment details are shredded daily and we are monitored by an online data security company called Trustwave who issue an annual Certificate of Compliance once they are satisfied that we have conformed to their strict regulations for online security.
Customers may request a credit account and, subject to acceptance, will be granted 30 days credit from date of invoice. Payment on delivery of commercial structures will be accepted by prior arrangement only. Any customer who fails to pay for goods supplied within an agreed period will be liable for all costs incurred by us including collection costs, legal costs and interest on the goods supplied.
We have a fixed delivery charge for deliveries of garden polytunnels, fruit cages, raised beds and polytunnel accessories to UK mainland addresses. For all non-mainland addresses, we can deliver to a nominated mainland address and the customer will have to arrange onward carriage at their own cost.
Non-mainland addresses include the Isle of Skye.
Depending on location, there may be a charge for delivery of commercial polytunnels , delivery will be to the nearest point of access.
Our supplier of greenhouses, Elite Greenhouses, arranges delivery to customers. However, Elite do not deliver North of Inverness or to certain rural postcodes. If this is the case, please contact us for a delivery price or you can arrange to have the greenhouse delivered to our Nairn premises and arrange for the onward carriage at your own cost.
Delivery normally takes between 7 to 14 days for garden polytunnels. Delivery of commercial structures can take up to 4 weeks from the date of order. However, depending on your location and the time of year, delivery of commercial structures can be days rather than weeks.
When ordering a greenhouse, you will be advised of the delivery date as delivery depends on the specification of the structure as well as your location and the time of year.
Non-standard or made to measure items may require additional manufacturing processes and a specific delivery period will be given in this instance.
Reasonable access for heavy goods vehicle must be available for unloading the goods. If special arrangements have to be made due to inadequate access, we must be informed in advance and we reserve the right to charge additional carriage or associated costs.
If the goods are lost or damaged in transit, please let us know as soon as possible.
