All goods sold by Us are sold as a 'trade sale' and as a customer purchasing via this site you are not covered by legislation that protects 'non trade' consumers and this is regardless of the type of products sold by us. By purchasing from us you confirm that you are doing so in the course of business and not as a consumer and have authority to act on behalf of any business you complete the transaction for. All sales are final once ordered & paid for and no returns, refund, cancellation or credit will be allowed for any reason including previously undiscovered defects or discrepancies with the goods, the description, quantities or otherwise unless agreed by us in writing. Any agreement by us to cancel an order, accept a return or offer a refund/credit is subject to the purchaser bearing all picking/delivery/transport/payment processing costs for the return of the goods as well as any initial outgoing delivery costs of the goods unless otherwise agreed by us in writing. In addition, a re-stocking fee of 10% of the sale price of the goods (exc. vat) will also be payable by the purchaser on any goods we accept as a return or on any orders we agree to cancel prior to dispatch if they have already been picked. Any other non-refundable transport/delivery/shipping/processing costs in connection with any purchase regardless of whether the service has been used or not will be payable by You the customer. Any discrepancies or damage must be reported to us in writing within 24 hours of delivery. If we accept a cancellation of an order prior to dispatch of goods then we reserve the right to deduct any fees associated with this order from your payment/s before they/it is returned to you. Such fees may include picking, packing, transport bookings, payment processing fees or any other fees for time or labour that may be associated or linked to the order.

 

No statement made by any person as to the quality or condition of any merchandise on offer is to be relied upon for the purpose of making an offer to purchase. All goods are sold without any form of warranty or guarantee and full liability for any future issues with all merchandise will sit with the buyer and not Daniel Thomas Group or any of our associated companies or trading names/styles. Unless specifically covered by another term set out within these terms and conditions you will NOT be compensated if products develop a fault after resale by you to a third party or during future usage by you or any other party. This does not affect any statutory rights that you may have by law to the extent that such rights are not excluded or limited under these terms and conditions. Please ensure you read and understand all the terms and conditions prior to you making a purchase.

 

We reserve the right to cancel or delay any orders where we suspect fraud may be taking place or where we have not been given a full UK address to deliver to. We do not deliver to PO Boxes, BFPO or any other non-standard UK address unless otherwise agreed by us in writing.

By purchasing from us you agree that the placing of any order with us using any method does not indicate that a contract exists between us. Acceptance of your order and hence a contract between us will be indicated & formed once goods are dispatched. We reserve the right to correct any mistakes or cancel any order where we have made a pricing error, we inadvertently under-price goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for any reason. We will always contact you to ensure that any price change is acceptable or to notify you if the products are not available for any reason.

Our delivery times are indicated on our website as a guide and while we endeavour to get your order to you as quickly as possible, we can not be held responsible for any delay to your delivery. It is your responsibility to ensure the goods arrive intact, un-opened, un-tampered with and un-damaged and once signed for are accepted as delivered complete and in good condition. Should you receive goods that look like they may have been tampered with, are damaged, opened or have had items removed you MUST contact us immediately by telephone prior to signing for the goods. If you are unable to reach us and take the decision to accept the goods then you must note it on the delivery paperwork, get the driver to sign next to your note and take a copy of the paperwork prior to handing paperwork back to the driver. You must also take photos while the driver is still there and ideally while the goods are still on the delivery vehicle and then inform us by email/telephone within 24 hours. If you fail to do the above then we may be unable to accept any claim from you or make a claim from the carrier.

The stock is sold as shown on any advert listings and whilst we make every effort to ensure the stock & details are correct you may get some minor discrepancies with the supply of overstock, clearance stock, liquidation stock, bankrupt stock, excess stock due to its very nature. Overstock, clearance stock, liquidation stock, bankrupt stock, excess stock is generally believed to be in good condition unless otherwise notified by us but on occasions it may suffer from some soiled or damaged packaging and normal manufacturing defects and while we will try to inform you of any major issues to any stock/packaging that is noticed it may be possible that some issues are found after purchase and no warranty or guarantee whether expressed or implied is attached to any goods sold.

All stock is sold to YOU the buyer without guarantee as to fitness for purpose and on the understanding that You the purchaser will ensure that the goods are made safe and serviceable before re-sale. No warranty whether expressed or implied by law will attach to any such sale. It is the responsibility of YOU the purchaser to inspect the merchandise and arrange any safety inspections required for such products to ensure that all legal safety requirements required by law for the product being sold in the country it is being sold in are met prior to re-selling it to your customer or passing it onto another party for business or personal use. WE will assume that such an inspection has been made.


The Purchaser will indemnify Daniel Thomas Group/Universal Wholesale Ltd from and against any claims whatsoever resulting directly or indirectly from the resale, passing on or use of any Merchandise purchased from us.

If we advertise on our website through the product listing or inform you through any other advert or by any other method that any goods/products have a restriction on where they can be sold, then by purchasing the said goods you agree to abide by the restrictions as notified. By not adhering to this condition then YOU agree to wholly indemnify us/Daniel Thomas Group/Universal Wholesale Ltd against any claims arising against us by YOU or any other third parties.

We also can not be held responsible for any issues/claims regarding the restriction/rejection of the listing/sale of any products by any third party selling platforms/websites/companies as some such companies may have their own rules in place of what can & can't be sold on their platforms or what documentation they may require from you regarding listing/selling a product on their platform and this is a matter between you & the company/website/platform involved. We are unable to supply any further paperwork for products apart from your sales invoice and by purchasing from us you agree that we will not be held liable for any claims or refund requests from you or any third parties in regards to this.

We reserve the right to withdraw from any offer made on goods where we believe the goods to have any connection with any unlawful practice or if the goods or quantities are not as described. The seller of all goods is responsible for ensuring that full & proper title of all goods is granted without any re-selling restrictions and where this is found not to be the case we reserve the right to a full refund of monies paid including any costs incurred with connection of the collection, delivery, advertising, loss to any third parties including their costs or otherwise of the goods.
