- These terms of sale apply to all goods supplied by www.homesupply.co.uk (HomeSupply)
- No contract exists between you and HomeSupply for the sale of any goods until HomeSupply has received and accepted your order and HomeSupply has received payment in full (in cleared funds). Once HomeSupply does so, there is a binding legal contract between us.
- By way of clarification, an acknowledgement of your order will be sent to you via e-mail when you place your order, but acceptance of your offer to buy the goods will not take place until after your payment is successfully taken. It is at this point that a binding legal contract is created and any contract is subject to these Terms and Conditions.
- The contract is subject to your right of cancellation (see section 6).
- HomeSupply may change these terms of sale without notice to you in relation to future sales.
Description and pricing
- The description and price of the goods you order will be as shown on the HomeSupply website at the time you place your order. Whilst every effort is taken to ensure information provided on our web site is accurate, we do request that our customers satisfy themselves that the product purchased will be suitable for use.
- The goods are subject to availability. If on receipt of your order the goods you have ordered are not available, HomeSupply will inform you as soon as possible and refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the goods.
- Every effort is made to ensure that prices shown on our website are accurate at the time you place your order. If an error is found, HomeSupply will inform you as soon as possible and offer you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price, or cancelling your order. If HomeSupply do not receive an order confirmation within 7 days of informing you of the error, your order will be cancelled automatically. If you cancel the order, or if the order is cancelled automatically due to the expiry of the 7-day period, HomeSupply will refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the goods.
- In addition to the price stated, you may be required to pay a delivery charge for the goods.
- Product images are for illustrative purposes only and may differ from the actual product. We do not accept any liability for the accuracy of the images which are provided by the manufacturers.
- Payment for the goods and delivery charges can be made by any method shown on the HomeSupply.co.uk website at the time you place your order. Payment shall be due before the delivery date and time for payment shall be a fundamental term of this agreement, breach of which shall entitle HomeSupply to terminate the contract immediately.
- There will be no delivery until cleared funds have been received.
- Payments shall be made by you without any deduction whatsoever unless you have a valid court order requiring an amount equal to such deduction to be paid by HomeSupply to you.
- The goods you order will be delivered to the address you give when you place your order.
- Our delivery charge will be shown separately on your order. Please take note that this will be our ‘basic charge’ and it may not represent our actual costs for delivering your order as, in the majority of cases, our costs are much higher than what we actually charge you. This is particularly relevant if you ask us to collect goods or arrange deliveries outside of our standard terms and conditions.
- If delivery cannot be made to your address for any reason, HomeSupply will inform you as soon as possible and refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited immediately.

- Every effort will be made to deliver the goods as soon as possible after your order has been accepted. However, HomeSupply will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you through reasonable or unavoidable delay in delivery. In this case, HomeSupply will inform you as soon as possible.
- If goods are ordered on a weekend or a bank holiday, the order will be processed on the next working day and delivery dates will vary accordingly. If a delivery would normally be required to take place over the Christmas shutdown period, the delivery period may have to be extended to a later date. We endeavour to deliver all goods on time, however delays are possible, therefore do not book your installer until your order has been safely received complete, and in good condition.
- You may sometimes receive your order in parts. This may happen when the goods you order are from a range of different manufacturers or when items are temporarily out of stock. We reserve the right to do this and we will not charge you any extra for these additional deliveries.
- Upon receipt of your order you will be asked to sign to confirm your goods have been received in good condition. If the package does not appear to be in good condition then please refuse the delivery. If you are unable to check the contents of your delivery at the time of delivery then please sign for the parcel as UNCHECKED. Failure to do so may affect any warranty claims that you make thereafter.
- It is important that someone is available to sign the delivery documentation when your order arrives. However we are aware that some of our customers may request that goods are 'left in a safe place' stated on their order. Whilst we are happy to pass these instructions on to our couriers, this is done entirely at your own risk and at the discretion of the courier. We accept no liability for claims for shortages or non-delivery, when goods are delivered in this manner at your request. Please do not ask us to leave goods without obtaining a signature unless you are prepared to accept the risks that this involves.

In order to partially meet our obligations as a distributor as defined in the UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations (SI 2006 No. 3289 - 11 December 2006) (referred to hereafter as “the WEEE Regulations”), we have opted to become a full member of the Distributor Take back Scheme (DTS). Membership of the DTS is defined in regulation 35 of the WEEE Regulations and delivers exemption from the requirements of regulation 31 (to “ensure that WEEE from private households can be returned to him free of charge and on a one-to-one basis”) and regulation 34(1) (maintenance of records).
As a member of the DTS, we have made a financial contribution toward the development of the network of Designated Collection Facilities (DCFs) instead of offering instore take back of WEEE. This financial contribution is described in paragraphs 83 to 88 of the UK WEEE guidance, and has been used to improve the WEEE collection facilities located at Local Authority Civic Amenity sites.
In addition, through our support of the national recycling website, recycle-more.co.uk, we will also meet our obligations under regulation 33 to make information available to users of EEE in private households on -
- the requirement on each Member State under Article 2 of the Directive to minimise the disposal of WEEE as unsorted municipal waste and to achieve a high level of collection of WEEE for treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal;
- the collection and take back systems available to them;
- their role in contributing to the reuse, recycling and other forms of recovery of WEEE under these Regulations;
- the potential effects on the environment and human health as a result of the presence of hazardous substances in EEE; and
- the meaning of the crossed out wheeled bin symbol.
