1. Product Information
1. Descriptions, prices and product information
1.1 We aim to show items as accurately as possible, but they may look different in the flesh. We take great care to reproduce item descriptions and specifications provided by manufacturers accurately, but occasionally we make mistakes. If there is anything which is unclear, or if you wish to obtain further information, please contact our shop via email: email@example.com or call 01443 230 000 between 8am and 5pm (GMT), Monday to Friday or between 9am and 12pm Saturday.
1.2 From time to time prices of items published on our website may differ from the price offered at the same time in FOREST PARK and GARDEN store.
1.3 All prices are expressed inclusive of any VAT payable (where applicable). This means that the total price you pay for the item, and for the delivery, is always the same, regardless of whether or not UK VAT is chargeable on the sale. The price of each item does not include the cost of delivery or any other services. We reserve the right, however, to change prices on our websites at any time without notice to you. We make every effort to ensure that prices shown are accurate when you place your order. If within 14 days of receiving your item(s),a pricing error is found in respect of any or all of the items you have ordered, we will notify you as soon as possible and offer you the option of:-
- placing a new order at the correct price for the mis-priced item(s);
- cancelling your order for the mis-priced item(s); or
- cancelling the whole of your order.
1.4 If, within 7 days of receipt of our notice to you, you have not responded by selecting one of the available options above then:
- if all of the items you have ordered are found to be mis-priced the entire order will be cancelled automatically and we will refund or re-credit you for any sum you have paid for those items; or
- If only some of the items you have ordered are found to be mis-priced, we will deliver the correctly priced items but we will not be obliged to supply you with the mis-priced items. In these circumstances we will refund or re-credit you for any sum you have paid for the mis-priced items.
1.5 In the event that a pricing error is found by us, then the above options shall only apply if your order delivery has not been completed.
2. Eligibility & Availability
2. Eligibility to Order
2.1 To be eligible to purchase items from this site, you must be (a) be 18 years of age or over; and (b) have a credit or debit card acceptable to us in your name and (c) stipulate a delivery address within the UK or within one of our International delivery locations (which may vary according to the items ordered); (d) and give your real name, address, phone number, email address and any other details requested.
2.2 We cannot sell knives or any other sharp items which includes such items as scissors and DIY kits that include bladed tools to you if you are under the age of 18 years.
2.3 We reserve the right to decline a new customer registration or suspend your account at any time.
2.4 We also reserve the right not to accept your order for any reason.
3.1 We try our best to ensure that all items on our site are in stock. If an item is out of stock, it will normally be labelled as 'out of stock' or “Available within * days” (*insert amount of days) on our website. If, for any other reason beyond our control, we are unable to supply a particular product, we will not be liable to you except to ensure that you are not charged for that product. Some items are not held in stock (e.g. larger machines like chippers, lawn tractors or lawn mowers) and these therefore will have a longer delivery time.
3.2 We will let you know as soon as possible if any particular item is unavailable for purchase.
3.3 To ensure availability of all our items, we may place restrictions on how many units of a particular product you can order at a time. We reserve the right to withdraw any product from sale for any reason.
4. Payments, our acceptance of your order and how the contract between us is formed
4.1 We only accept payment in Pound Sterling and by credit or debit card & PayPal
4.2 If an exchange rate is applicable to your order your card provider will determine the rate of exchange and may add an administration charge which you will be liable to pay.
4.3 When you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an order confirmation email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is not an acceptance of your order, just confirmation that we have received it.
4.4 The contract between us for the items you have ordered will only be formed when we receive full payment of the items or service and the items have been delivered to your address. The contract will therefore be formed in WALES and the language of the contract will be English.
4.5 Payment will be debited from your account upon submission of your order online. This will be when the contract between Forest Park and Garden and you is formed (see above).
4.6 All refund payments will be paid to you in Pound Sterling and will match the amount you paid in Pound Sterling for the item(s) and delivery (if the delivery charge is refundable). If an exchange rate is applicable to your order the amount you receive in your local currency will depend on the exchange rate applied by your credit or debit card provider when it receives our refund payment and may therefore be different from the price paid for the item(s) in your local currency. We will not be liable for any losses caused to you as a result of any currency fluctuations or exchange rates applied by your credit or debit card provider.
If you are in the UK:
5.1 Delivery to your home or to your delivery address in the UK may incur a charge as detailed in our UK Delivery section. The delivery charge is charged on your total order, if your order is made up of a mixture of small/medium sized items you will incur a 'standard delivery' charge but if you include a large item your delivery charge will be at the higher price.
5.2 We aim to deliver the majority of the small/medium sized items that we have to you within 4 working days for most UK postcodes. For remote UK postcodes and locations not classified as mainland UK then we will aim to deliver small/medium sized items to you within 5 working days after you have placed your order. On certain items there is a longer lead time which is up to 28 days. For orders that are delivered direct to you by our suppliers, after placing your order they will contact you to arrange a delivery date that is convenient to you.
5.3 A signature may sometimes be required at delivery. By placing an order you are authorising us to accept signature from another person at the same address on your behalf if you need to sign for an item and you are not present at the time of delivery.
5.4 For some items that do not require a signature at delivery you may be able to give instructions explaining if and where you would like the product to be left if no one is present at the time of delivery, such as with a neighbour.
5.5 Ownership of an item will not pass to you until the product has been delivered to you (either directly, or by leaving it in a safe place or with a neighbour or where you have signed for it when using the click and collect option). Once an item is delivered, responsibility for risk of damage to or loss of the product passes to you.
5.6 We also use third party delivery companies which may, at their discretion, leave an item in a safe place if no one is present at the time of delivery. In these circumstances the delivery company will put a card through your letter box explaining where the product has been left.
5.7 Should your order include a large item, e.g., a half tonne wood chipper or Stump Grinder, it is your responsibility to ensure you check access to your premises before placing your order. We will not be held responsible for any costs associated with this.
