3. Online Order process
3.1 The advertising of products on our website constitutes an "invitation to treat" rather than a contractual offer and therefore, no contract will come into force between you and us unless and until we accept your order in accordance with the procedure set out in this Section 3.
3.2 To enter into a contract through our website to purchase products from us, the following steps must be taken: you must add the products you wish to purchase to your shopping cart, and then proceed to the checkout; if you are a new customer, you must then create an account with us and log in; if you are an existing customer, you must enter your login details; once you are logged in, you must select your preferred method of delivery and confirm your order and your consent to the terms of this document; you will be transferred to our payment service provider's website, and our payment service provider will handle your payment; we will then send you an initial acknowledgement; and once we have checked whether we are able to meet your order, we will either send you an order confirmation (at which point your order will become a binding contract) or we will confirm by email that we are unable to meet your order.
3.4 You will have the opportunity to identify and correct input errors prior to making your order.
4.1 We may periodically change the products available on our website and in our business generally, and we do not undertake to you to continue to supply any particular product or type of product.
4.2 In the event you request us to order in a particular part that we do not generally stock, we will require you to pay in advance for it. We do this because on past occasions customers have not followed up and purchased the part in question, therefore, we have had to change our policy in this regard.
4.3 Published product details, specifications and suitability information is the best available at the time. We shall not be held responsible for the accuracy of any advice given regarding the suitability (or otherwise) of any part/s required for the repair. If you have ordered an item that has an unsuitable product description, we will remedy this by (at our discretion) providing you with a full refund upon the return of the product back to us.
5.1 Our prices are quoted to you on request and can be provided to you via email.
5.2 We will from time to time change our prices, but this will not affect contracts that have previously come into force.

6.1 You must, during the checkout process, pay the prices of the products you order.
6.2 Payments may be made by any of the permitted methods specified on our website or quoted to you from time to time.
6.3 If you fail to pay to us any amount due under these terms and conditions in accordance with the provisions of these terms and conditions, then we may withhold the products ordered and/or by written notice to you at any time cancel the contract of sale for the products.
6.4 If you make an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back then you will be liable to pay us, within 7 days following the date of our written request:
(a) an amount equal to the amount of the charge-back;
(b) all third party expenses incurred by us in relation to the charge-back (including charges made by our or your bank or payment processor or card issuer);
(c) an administration fee of €25.00 including VAT; and
(d) all our reasonable costs, losses and expenses incurred in recovering the amounts referred to in this Section 6.4 (including without limitation legal fees and debt collection fees),
and for the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to recognise or fail to remember the source of an entry on your card statement or other financial statement, and make a charge-back as a result, this will constitute an unjustified charge-back for the purposes of this Section 6.4.
7. Credit accounts
7.1 If we agree to open a business account for you, you will be able to pay in arrears, in accordance with the provisions of this Section 7.
7.2 If you hold an account, then upon or following the dispatch of products, we will send to you an invoice for payment of the price of those products, and you will pay such invoice within 30 days following the date of our invoice.
7.3 Business accounts will be subject to such credit limits as we may notify to you from time to time.
7.4 If you do not pay to us any amount properly due under or in connection with these terms and conditions in full and on time, we shall charge you interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 1% per year calendar month on the amount owed (which interest will accrue daily until the date of payment and be compounded at the end of each calendar month). and without prejudice to our other legal rights or rights under these terms and conditions.
8.1 We will arrange for the products you purchase to be delivered to the delivery address you specify during the checkout process or as you have otherwise provided to us.
8.2 We will use reasonable endeavours to deliver your products on or before the date for delivery set out in the order confirmation or, if no date is set out in the order confirmation, within 7 days following the date of the order confirmation; however, we do not guarantee delivery by this date. We do not accept liability to you for any delay in the delivery of products ordered and although we will do our best to get all orders out as quickly as possible. If there is a real delay, then you will have the right to cancel delayed orders at any time and get a refund.
8.3 Unless there are exceptional circumstances, all deliveries of products will be dispatched within 30 days following the later of receipt of payment and the date of the order confirmation.
8.4 We will use all reasonable efforts to deliver products within the Republic of Ireland within 72 hours, or, if being delivered to the United Kingdom mainland, within 48 hours.
8.5 If your delivery address is outside of Ireland or the UK, you may be required to pay import duties and taxes when your product(s) reaches your country. These and any additional charges for customs clearance are your responsibility.
8.6 All products are subject to availability and if we are unable to supply a particular product then we shall advise you within a reasonable period of time and discuss any other options that might be available to you.
8.7 If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you (including where you have failed to provide any instructions, documents, licenses or authorisations required to enable the products to be delivered on time and this is not our fault), you do not re-arrange delivery we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs.
