ADA Fastfix Terms

Terms & Conditions

By using this site, you agree to these terms of use. If you do not agree to these terms, you may not use this site. www.adafastfix.co.uk reserves the right, at any time, to modify, alter, or update these terms of use, and you agree to be bound by such modifications, alterations, or updates on subsequent visits.

Order Acceptance and Processing

All orders are accepted when your credit/charge/debit card is processed. Any email or other acknowledgment of your order is merely to report that your request has been received and will be looked at, and does not in any way denote acceptance of your order regardless of any wording on the email. www.adafastfix.co.uk reserves the right, at any time prior to acceptance, to refuse any order or any part of an order, or to require further or better information to enable it to evaluate and/or process the order.

Cancellation of Orders

If you cancel your order you will be given a cancellation number.

To cancel please email: orders@adafastfix.co.uk You must keep a record of this number. Orders are only cancelled once this number is provided and any claims that an order was cancelled will not be entertained unless a cancellation number can be quoted. Orders cannot be cancelled once the order has been given to our warehouse for picking and packing. If you no longer require goods that have entered our warehouse system you will have to return them under the Returns Policy. Please note that if you return the goods within 3 days in accordance with the Distance Selling Regulations then no restocking charge will be made.

Delivery of Goods

The delivery of goods to you is deemed to be a separate contract for services, distinct from your contract to purchase the goods. Delivery may be effected in one or more instalments. Changes to the delivery address made by the purchaser after the goods have been handed to the delivery company will incur and additional charge of £15.00.

If an item on a delivery is damaged, make a note of the damaged item on the paperwork and email orders@adafastfix.co.uk with the details. Do not refuse the delivery unless every item is damaged. If you refuse a delivery with any undamaged items on it you will be charged for the return and the redelivery of those items. For large pallet deliveries please be aware that the costs will be considerably higher than the fee you are charged for delivery.
The delivery drivers are not insured to take their vehicles on roads other than public highways.

If you live in a remote location and your home is not on a public road, e.g if you live at the end of a farm track, then the driver will deliver the goods to the end of the public road only. You accept this when placing your order and if you refuse the delivery because  the driver cannot drop at your door then you will be charged the actual delivery costs and the collection fees. (This will apply to large, bulky item orders arriving on pallets. Smaller parcels can usually be delivered on foot by the driver.)

Delivery dates are approximate and no liability whatsoever is accepted in respect of late deliveries.
If for any reason expected delivery will exceed 14 days from the date of receipt of order the customer will be informed and given the opportunity to cancel the order.
In certain circumstances where large bulky items are being ordered for delivery to very remote locations, or locations we are unable to deliver to on our normal transport routes there may be an additional carriage charge. If your order falls into this category then you will be notified of the extra cost and given the option of accepting the extra charge or cancelling your order.

For bulk purchases the driver will break down the pallet and move the individual items to a single location of your choice outside the property. The drivers may be prepared to assist with moving the items into the property but this is entirely at their discretion, they are not obliged to do this.
The delivery will be made by a single driver, so if the items you have ordered are heavy please ensure that an able bodied person is available to assist the driver with the carrying. For Health and Safety reasons the driver cannot carry heavy items on his own.

Without prejudice to the statutory rights afforded to consumers under English Law, www.adafastfix.co.uk accepts no liability for any failure to ship products where this results from its inability to do so resulting from acts of god, civil commotion, riots, flood, draught, fire, legislation or other factors outside it’s control, or its decision on reasonable grounds not  to do so for reasons of suspicion of credit card fraud or similar, provided that it takes all reasonable steps to notify you within fourteen (14) days of order placement that products will not be shipped as ordered.
In such cases www.adafastfix.co.uk will not process any payment or will immediately refund any payment made, in full. It is your responsibility to ensure that you order from www.adafastfix.co.uk with sufficient lead time to prevent any loss or disappointment resulting from such non-shipment.

All returns are tested and if the item proves not to be faulty when tested then only the product value will be refunded. You will be charged the actual cost of the delivery and the collection. For large pallet deliveries please be aware that the actual cost will be considerably higher than those you were originally charged for delivery. If the product has been used for an extended period of time and no fault is found you will not be refunded and the product will be returned to you.

Checking Goods For Carrier Damage and Notifying ADA Fastfix

(Please note that the following applies to carrier damage, which should be visible from external damage to the packaging. It does not apply to faulty goods, you are allowed a reasonable period to examine goods for faults after delivery)

For small item deliveries that arrive with carriers you agree to open all boxes and thoroughly check the goods for damage as soon as possible and notify us of any damage within 2 days of the delivery. If the package looks damaged then sign the paperwork with the word “damaged” but please be aware carriers will not wait for you to check the items thoroughly. If we are not notified of damage within 2 days we are unable to claim from either the manufacturer or the carrier. You agree to indemnify us in full for any losses we suffer as a result of your failure to notify us within 2 days.

For bulky deliveries that arrive on pallets you agree to check the goods for visible transit damage before signing the drivers delivery note. If you sign for the goods, even if you write the words “Unchecked” or similar on the delivery note, then you are accepting that the goods arrived without obvious external damage to the packaging and later claims for carrier damage will not be considered. If the driver refuses to wait while you check the goods then you must refuse to accept the delivery and email orders@adafastfix.co.uk with the details as soon as possible.

If someone else is signing for the goods on your behalf you agree to advise them that the goods must be checked and you accept full responsibility for any loss or damage if they sign on your behalf and fail to check. You agree to indemnify us in full for any losses we suffer as a result of you accepting goods and signing a delivery note without checking the goods for carrier damage.
