Shopping terms and conditions
These terms and conditions are written in accordance with the UK Distance Selling Regulations 2000. Such terms relate only to business done with Retail Customers. They do not cover business to business selling.
The contract will be deemed to be completed when the customer receives an email confirming the goods ordered, the prices, the delivery arrangements and the total cost including taxes. The order will be deemed to be complete when the email is sent whether it is received or not. This will be done by at least the time the order is received by the customer.
All orders will be completed within 30 days wherever possible. Should the order not be completed within 30 days then the customer has the right to cancel the order without charges. During the placing of the order the customer will be made aware of the normal stock status of the parts being ordered. In the event of items not being in stock, the customer can choose to take what is in stock at once, with a further shipment when back-ordered items come in, or wait for the back ordered items to come in and have all parts shipped together when available.
No substitute goods will be sent automatically to the customer but a salesman may offer substitute goods which the customer can decide whether to accept or not. This acceptance must be in writing.
Prices quoted will be honoured for seven days. Once an order has been placed the price will remain valid for 30 days. All unavoidable changes in pricing will be communicated to the customer for acceptance or refusal before parts are shipped. This includes carriage charges.
Cancellations and returns
The customer has seven working days (excluding weekends and public holidays) from goods receipt to decide whether to keep the goods or not. There are certain restrictions to this rule. For faulty or damaged parts please see separate section.
The customer must inform David Manners Ltd in writing within seven working days of goods receipt in writing if he wishes to cancel the order. This should be done by sending an email to us, subject matter
Order Cancellation or by sending a letter to 991, Wolverhampton Road, Oldbury, West Midlands, B69 4RJ, ENGLAND. FAO Returns Dept, Ref web order cancellation. For our e-mail address, click the 'contact us' button on most pages or click here.
Once the cancellation has been served it is the customers' duty to restore the goods to SFT MX5 Parts and in the meantime to take reasonable care of them so that when they are received by SFT MX5 Parts they can be sold again as new. All return costs are payable by the customer and will in no way be subsidised by SFT MX5 Parts. The responsibility to take care of the goods will continue for up to six months and will be open-ended if within that period the supplier serves a notice requiring the customer to hand them over.
If goods are not returned by the customer then the customer must make them available for collection by SFT MX5 Parts. Goods will remain under the customers' care until received and checked by the Returns Department and deemed fit to be resold as new by SFT MX5 Parts. Should the goods be returned in a state unfit for resale as new then the customer must either have them removed from the premises of SFT MX5 Parts or they will be shipped to the customer at the customers expense within 14 days of the customer being informed that the goods are not acceptable for resale. The customer will be informed by email or letter.
If SFT MX5 Parts receives the goods in a condition that enables them to be sold again as new then a refund will be issued to the customer within 30 days of the cancellation being issued.
Specially ordered goods may not be cancelled or returned unless damaged in transit or faulty. These are ones that have been made to the customers' specification and include all "made to order" trim parts and customers own units supplied for reconditioning. Non-stocked parts which have to be specially ordered are also non-returnable. Once SFT MX5 Parts has received the order a 7 working days cooling off period will be given to the customer before the order is placed with our supplier. Once the order has been placed with the supplier the customer cannot cancel the order and no refund will be given. Should the customer wish to opt out of the seven day cooling-off period so as not to delay the order, this must be done in writing.
Goods that are found to be damaged on receipt must be reported to SFT MX5 Parts within 7 working days of receipt. Should damaged goods be reported after this time then the goods will not be accepted back for a refund or replacement. These goods must not be used and should remain in the original packaging wherever possible. SFT MX5 Parts will arrange collection of these goods and refunds will be issued as soon as it is confirmed that the goods are damaged. It may be necessary for the carriage company responsible for delivery to the customer to inspect the goods at the customers' premises or the address to which the goods were delivered. The customer must make the goods available to the carriage company, as it may be necessary for a refund.
Our guarantee applies only where purchased goods have been used solely for the intended purpose and have not been used in any form of motor sport i.e. racing, rallying, or speed trials.
All parts are fully warranted against defects in materials and workmanship. Warranty will not cover labour, failure of a related component, failure resulting from faulty installation or misuse. Liability will not exceed the cost of the original component. During the warranty period (usually 12 months) please contact us immediately should any problem occur. We will then advise you, before replacing the failed component, as to the best course of action.
With all claims, both a copy of the customer invoice and our returns form (filled in by yourselves) must be received by us PRIOR to you returning the parts. We will decide the method of return freight and will charge it to you, the customer, if the fault is not ours.
Faulty goods must be reported to SFT MX5 Parts as soon as the fault occurs, if within the warranty period. These goods must stop being used immediately. SFT MX5 Parts will arrange collection of these goods and refunds will be issued as soon as it is confirmed that the goods are faulty. This could be up to 30 working days from when SFT MX5 Parts receives the goods, as some goods will have to be sent to the supplier for testing. If replacement goods are required in the meantime the customer must pay for the goods and shipping in full. Once confirmation of a fault has been given in writing to SFT MX5 Parts then the customer will be refunded in full for the faulty parts and original shipping. Should the goods be found to be in perfect working order the customer will not be refunded and SFT MX5 Parts reserves the right to charge the customer for any carriage costs incurred in the collection of the parts from the customer. The customer will then have the choice to either have the parts returned to him at his costs or to cancel the parts at which point the return will be dealt with as a cancelled order.
SFT MX5 Parts will make every attempt to ensure your order is delivered in the time specified but we cannot be responsible for the late delivery of parcels by a third party. In particular letter post cannot be guaranteed. Should there be late delivery by a courier who gives a promised delivery time, then we will offer you a good will refund of up to 75% of the carriage costs invoiced. No compensation will be paid for incidental losses incurred as a result of late delivery. When a courier is being used for delivery a signature will be necessary for the goods to be delivered. Goods cannot be left without such signature and there may be a further charge if the courier has to return.
Shortages must be reported in writing within 7 working days. All goods should be examined immediately upon receipt for damage or faults, as your warranty period begins the day of receipt.
