All prices are listed both exclusive of VAT. The prices listed on our website may be different to those in Licata Bulding Systems Ltd branches. All prices are subject to change without prior notice. Please check prices carefully before placing your order.

On rare occasions we may list an incorrect price for Product. Where the Product’s correct price is less than our listed price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than our listed price, we are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an order confirmation e-mail. We will at our discretion either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of this.

The Seller shall deliver the Goods to the Customer’s premises or the Customer shall collect the Goods from the Seller’s premises, whichever is applicable, on or by the date or dates agreed. By agreement between the parties the Seller may deliver the Goods and/ or perform the Services or the Customer may collect the Goods at an earlier time.

Where the Seller is to deliver Goods delivery will be to as near to the place in mainland Britain where the Purchaser requires delivery to be made as, in the discretion of the Seller, a safe, hard road permits.

The Customer shall be solely responsible for the unloading of the Goods if the Seller has delivered the Goods or for the loading of the Goods if the Customer is collecting the Goods and the Seller shall not be liable for any damage that occurs in the course of such loading or unloading.

In the event that such loading or unloading exceeds a period of 1 hour then demurrage may be charged.

If the Customer fails to collect the Goods or fails to give the Seller adequate delivery instructions at the time stated for delivery (otherwise than by reason or any cause beyond the Customer’s reasonable control or by reason of the Seller’s fault then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the Seller, the Seller may make provision for the storage of the Goods until actual recovery, and the Customer shall be responsible and shall indemnify the Seller for the reasonable costs, including insurance, of such storage.

Any date of delivery or period for delivery given is an estimate only and the Company will not be liable for any delay of the Goods.

If the Customer shall require proof of delivery or collection any such request for proof shall be notified in writing within 30 days of the date of the Seller’s invoice

We deliver to all mainland locations in England, Scotland and Wales. We may be able to deliver to the Isle of Man and some other more remote locations depending on the type of Products you have ordered, but this will require an additional delivery charge. We are, however, unable to deliver to Northern Ireland. Please contact us to check whether we can deliver to your area by calling 02088943372.

All orders will be delivered to a single address. For security reasons your first order using a credit/debit card for the first time will need to be delivered to the cardholder’s address. Subsequent orders can then be made to an alternative address.

Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each stage of the order process. We do not knowingly sell to children and orders may only be placed by persons aged 18 or over. Please ensure you provide your telephone number and email address when you place your order. You must fully accept these Terms before your order can be placed.

When you place your order this represents an offer to purchase Products from us. We will send an email to confirm that we have received your order. However, this order confirmation email does not mean that we have accepted your order.

You can only pay for Products ordered through our website by debit or credit card. We accept Visa and Mastercard credit cards and Maestro, Delta, Visa Electron and Solo debit cards. Payment for Products (including delivery charges) will be debited from your payment card at the time of placing your order. This does not mean that your order has been accepted and, if for any reason, your order is not accepted or we are unable to supply the Products you have ordered a full refund will be issued.

Unless we reject your order (see below) and subject to receipt by us from you of payment in full for all Products and any related delivery charges, your order will be accepted automatically when we dispatch the product to you. The Contract between us is formed at this time. If your order is dispatched in more than one delivery, each dispatch/delivery will conclude a separate contract of sale between you and us for the Product(s) delivered to you under that dispatch/delivery. Without affecting any Consumer Cancellation Right (see below), you can cancel your order for a Product at no cost any time before we dispatch that Product. However, if a product is cut or made specifically to your measurements or personalised for you in some other way, this right to cancel does not apply.

We reserve the right to tell you that we reject your order for any reason before acceptance has occurred. In particular, your order is subject to our stock availability. If we are unable to supply any Products that you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible. In the event that an out-of-stock Product is part of an order and we cannot contact you, we will accept your order for the Products we have in stock, refunding the purchase price of any unavailable Product where payment has already been made.

Timescale for delivery

We will try our best to meet the delivery estimates we give you but shall not be responsible for any failure to deliver ordered Products within these stated time frames so long as we deliver your products within 30 days of when we receive payment from you (or within any longer period we have expressly agreed with you). We will let you know if we cannot deliver your products within this timescale, and give you the opportunity to either wait for the Products or cancel your Contract. If you choose to cancel we will give you a full refund.

We strongly recommend that you do not book fitters or tradesmen until your order has actually been delivered and checked by you. We cannot be held responsible for any charges incurred with fitters or tradesmen due to non-delivery of an order or because you have not checked your delivery before booking their services.

Number of deliveries

We will always try to make one single delivery to you wherever possible to minimise any inconvenience – where we do this and your order contains a mix of Products with different delivery lead times, the longest lead time will apply to the whole order. However, making a single delivery may not always be possible.

Receipt of deliveries

All deliveries must be received and signed for by a person over the age of 18. If no-one is available to take the delivery, we will call you to arrange another delivery time and date that is suitable. We may need to make an additional handling charge for redelivery. Should no-one be available to take the redelivery we may cancel the order and refund your money, excluding any delivery charge.

Your rights

In the unlikely event that a Product is faulty or not as described or is delivered damaged your rights are set out in our Sale Terms. If you are a consumer you may have additional legal rights and nothing in these Terms (including our Sales Terms) affects these rights.

No Consumer Cancellation Right applies if your cancellation notice is received outside of this timeframe. Please note that if you exercise your Consumer Cancellation Right after the Product has been delivered, you will be responsible for returning the Product to us at your cost and within 14 days of the cancellation of your order.

We will arrange for the collection of the Product by our nominated carrier. Please note that there will be a minimum charge payable by you of £22 for this service, which may rise depending on your location and Product type.

Funds will be paid to the payment card used to place the order and will be made as soon as possible and no later than 14 days after our receipt of the returned Products. We are permitted to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Products which are due to the manner in which you have handled them.

Please note that unless you have a Consumer Cancellation Right or faulty/defective product any cancellations/returns and refunds are at our discretion – please call 0208 894 3372or email with your order number, postcode and contact telephone number. If we do accept a return of the Product it must be returned in its original condition within 30 days of the date it was delivered to you. You will be responsible for returning the Product to us at your cost and a restocking charge may be deducted from the amount to be refunded to you.

Should any part of these Terms be found to be invalid or unenforceable, it will, to the extent it is invalid or unenforceable, be treated as if it has been severed from these Terms and the remaining parts of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.

We reserve the right to make changes to these Terms in the future. Any changes will be posted to this website and will take effect immediately. You should, therefore, read the Terms each time you access this website.

These Terms and any Contracts shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law and shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
