Terms of Purchasing
Making a Purchase
Making a purchase is easy. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping basket. They will be added while you keep shopping. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need, to be able to complete the order.
We accept credit and debit card payments as well as Paypal. If you are shopping from Outside the UK, place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to your own currency.
We accept Visa, Switch, Solo, Maestro and Mastercard. We can accept credit/debit card information over the phone, or over via our website.
When we email out a confirmation of order, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice which goes out with the goods or will be sent via email. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
For orders made from the UK or the European Union, VAT is added at the relevant rate (mostly 20%, but 5% or 0% for some items). For orders outside of the UK, please check.

THE BASIS OF THE CONTRACT BETWEEN US: 1. These Terms shall apply to any Installation undertaken by us 2. We have agreed to provide a Quotation and proceed with the Installation on the basis that you either own the Property or have obtained all of the necessary consents of the owner of the Property and all areas in which the Installation will take place. 3. A Quotation will be valid for a period of 30 days from the date stated on it, unless we notify you in writing that we have withdrawn it during this period. 4. If, having read and considered the quotation and terms, you wish to proceed with an Installation you confirm that you: (a) accept the Quotation; (b) accept the Terms; and (c) want us to proceed with the Installation. By doing so, you are offering to enter into a binding contract with us, which we are free to accept or decline at our sole discretion. 5. You may cancel the Installation at any time before the date we have agreed to commence the Installation by providing us with written notice and provided alstreesurgery.co.uk agrees it is reasonable. 6. We reserve the right to revise and amend these Terms and the Quotation or any products and services we supply from time to time to reflect changes in market conditions affecting our business, changes in technology that is used for any system or part thereof, changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements including a change in any funding that is available and changes in our system´s capabilities. 7. You will be subject to the policies and terms in force at the time that you accept the Quotation, unless any change to those policies or these Terms is required by law or government or regulatory authority 8. We may need to exchange products within your System, and/or alter the System layout due to factors outside our control including, but not limited to, product availability or manufacturer upgrades. If we do need to make any changes we will inform you and only replace any products with like for like products. If this change results in an additional, un-agreed, cost to you, you will be entitled to a reimbursement of the additional cost.
THE INSTALLATION 1. We will use reasonable efforts to carry out the Installation on the date we agree and within the timescales we agree, but if we need to rearrange the date of the Installation we will tell you as soon as we can and we will try to arrange an alternative date with you. In the event that we must use an alternative installer to carry out the works at your Property, it is likely that the new installer will wish to carry out a new assessment at your Property. This will be at no cost to you. 2. If you arrange to carry out any extra works yourself (or through any other contractor), then you must ensure that those works are: (a) carried out: I. prior to the date from which we have agreed to carry out the Installation; II. in a professional manner; III. in accordance with any relevant professional standards; and (b) safe. We will not be liable for any damage to your Property, or for any delays, caused by any extra works that you have arranged yourself. 3. If you need to change the date for the Installation you must call us as soon as you are able to and we will try to arrange an alternative date with you. 4. For some systems, (for example heating systems) we may require you to take up all or some of your carpets and floor coverings, including tongue and groove, parquet hardwood, rubber or tiled floors before we start work and we will give you as much notice as possible if we need you to do so. It will be your responsibility to replace the floor when the Installation is completed. 5. We will use our reasonable efforts to erect any required scaffold and carry out the Installation at your Property in accordance with the Contract but we are unable to guarantee any timescales due to delays which are beyond our control. 6. Whilst we use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that products are delivered on time to construct your System we may need to rearrange the date of the Installation due to a delay in product deliveries due to excess demand in the marketplace or delay in the shipping of products, or a withdrawal of certain products from the market by the manufacturer. 7. In the event that an issue is discovered that may affect the health and safety of any persons at the Property, including but not limited to safety issues relating to adverse weather conditions, scaffold, your electrical wiring, your plumbing or your power supply, we may need to delay your Installation whilst the issues are resolved. 8. Following completion of the Installation we will ask you to sign a form to confirm that the Installation has been completed to your satisfaction and that you have been told how the System operates and should be maintained. 9. In order to help us maintain our standards of work we monitor a selection of all installations that we undertake. Where your Property is selected for monitoring, you agree to give our technical monitor access to your Property on a date we agree with you (on at least 48 hours’ notice) so that the monitoring can take place. 10. Please note that we may take photographs of your Property during the Installation where we need to keep a visual record of the work that is carried out by us. 11. Provided the installation/ product is used as directed there should be no problems. If something other than what we have installed should become faulty through no fault of our own (as reasonably decided by us) we will take no responsibility. 12. We only take responsibility for the functioning of the product where installed by us unless due to a manufacturing fault.
