TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The following are the terms and conditions dealing with use of our website and services and by registering with us and/or by making a purchase you are agreeing to be bound by them. We may change these from time to time by updating this page.
1.1 Orders: Submitting an order through the website will be deemed as a contract to purchase the goods. Tek Maintenance t/a Direct Lockers is entitled to withdraw from any contract in a case of errors or inaccuracy regarding the goods or the order appearing on the site.
1.2 Availability: In the unlikely event that the goods are unavailable, Tek Maintenance t/a Direct Lockers will dispatch the order (or remainder of the order) within 10 days or offer a full refund for undelivered goods.
2. ESTIMATES AND QUOTATIONS
2.1 A quotation by the Company does not constitute an offer by the Company to supply the goods stated therein and no order placed in response to the Company’s quotation will be binding unless accepted by the Company in writing. The Company reserves the right to change the design or specification of the goods without prior notice and without liability to the customer.
2.2 The Sellers quotation shall be valid for 30 days unless otherwise quoted.
Unless otherwise specified, all prices are carriage paid, exclusive of VAT and carriage paid to the kerb side UK Mainland, with the exception of large products requiring a crane / hiab offload. Where a crane / hiab offload is required, this may be charged for separately but the Company will notify you prior to despatch of goods if this is the case and you will have the right to cancel at that point.
4. ORDERS / SPECIFICATIONS
4.1 No order submitted by you shall be deemed to be accepted until confirmed in writing by the Company. Any subsequent amendments must also be confirmed by you and the Company in writing. Due to continual design and manufacturing improvements, strict accuracy of descriptions, specifications, colours, sizes, capacities and illustrations cannot be guaranteed.
4.2 The images of the goods on our website or in our brochures are for illustrative purposes only. Although We have made every effort to display the colours accurately, We cannot guarantee that your computer’s display of the colours or the printed pictures accurately reflect the colour of the goods and your goods may vary from those images. Where images of individual products are unavailable, images may show multiple goods alongside a description of which goods are included. For goods not manufactured by the Company, the Company is provided with images, codes, descriptions of goods displayed online and in printed material direct from its suppliers and the Company is not responsible for those images, codes or descriptions.
4.3 If you require specific colours, sizes, options, capacities, delivery dates or other criteria, these must be marked clearly on your order.
4.4 We will acknowledge your order during normal working hours (Monday – Friday 8.30am – 5.30pm) with a confirmed cost and estimated delivery date. If this is not acceptable, We will try to resolve any issues to your full satisfaction. If We cannot, you can cancel your order without charge prior to despatch of goods unless products are being made to order.

( iii ) of any other moneys due from the Customer to the Company on any account
5.3Until property in the goods passes to the customer under sub-clause 5.2 about the Customer shall:

( ii ) The Customer shall keep any proceeds of sale as referred to in sub-clause 5.5 (i) above in a separate account and the Company shall have the right to trace such proceeds ( according to the principals in re Halletts Estate ( 1880 ) 13 ch D696 )
( iii ) Upon accounting to the Company for the entire proceeds of sale made under sub-clauses 5.4 (ii) and 5.5 (i) above, the Company will pay to the Customer a commission equivalent to the difference between the sums owed to the Company and the value of such proceeds.

5.8 Retake possession of all or any part of the goods and enter any premises for that purpose (or authorise others to do so) which the Customer hereby authorises;
(ii) Require delivery up to it of all or any part of the goods;
(iii) Terminate the Customer’s authority to resell or use the goods forthwith by written notice to the Customer which authority shall automatically terminate ( without notice ) upon any insolvency of the Customer or it going into liquidation ( as defined in the insolvency act 1986 ) or it having a receiver or other similar officer appointed or calling a meeting of its creditors or any execution or distress being levied on goods in its possession.
5.9 The Company may at any time appropriate sums received from the Customer as it thinks fit notwithstanding any purported appropriation by the Customer.

6.1 Lead times are estimates of normal delivery. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, delivery of the goods shall take place at the address specified by you as close as possible to the estimated date specified by the Company. If we are not able to deliver the whole of the order at one time due to operational reasons or shortage of stock, We will deliver the order in installments. We will not charge you extra delivery costs for this.
6.2 Goods are usually delivered to “goods inwards” or “reception” and always to kerbside / ground floor (unless previously agreed in writing). Further transfer or installation, particularly for large or heavy items, can only be arranged with prior notice (extra charges may apply).
6.3 You or your authorised person must be present to receive and sign for delivery. Any failed attempts may result in a return delivery charge and leaving goods without a signature is entirely at your own risk. The Company cannot accept claims for shortage or damage after the goods have been delivered, unless the carrier’s note has been marked as damaged or signed "unexamined" and the Company is notified in writing within 24 hours of delivery of any issue. Some products may require a small amount of assembly by you after delivery to keep transport costs down. Total non-delivery due to loss in transit must be notified within 7 days of date of invoice.
6.4 Standard delivery may not include pedestrian zones that operate time limits on deliveries.
6.5 Whilst we shall endeavour to deliver your goods to you as quickly as possible, at the very latest delivery will take place within 30 days after the day on which We accept your order (unless stated otherwise for those goods in our website).

7.1 Standard goods will only be accepted for return unused, undamaged and in the original packaging within 14 days of delivery with the prior agreement of the Company, subject to our right to charge a restocking fee and carriage for the outward journey.
7.2 Unfortunately, we cannot accept the return of bespoke/made-to-order goods if the reason for the return is because you provided us with incorrect measurements or because you no longer require the goods for any reason. However, this will not affect your legal rights as a consumer in relation to made-to-order goods that are faulty or not as described.
7.3 Cancellations / credits are issued by the payment method originally used. Cheques will be issued up to 10 days after your original payment date to allow sufficient time for security checks. Refunds to credit or debit cards will be issued quicker but may take up to 14 working days to show on your statements dependent on your bank (Unfortunately this is totally beyond our control).
All prices are in pound sterling and subject to the delivery charge as noted above. Payment may be made by Visa, Switch, MasterCard, Solo and Delta. Additionally there is the option to send a cheque or pay on account if you are an existing account customer.
9. RISK / TITLE
9.1 The risk in the goods shall pass to you on completion of delivery.
9.2 Title to the goods shall not pass to you until the earlier of:
a The Company receives payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for the goods and any other goods that the Company has supplied to you in respect of which payment has become due, in which case title to the goods shall pass at the time of payment of all such sums; or
b You resell the goods in the ordinary course of business, in which case title to the goods shall pass to you at the time specified in clause 9.4 below.
9.3 Until title to the goods has passed to you, you shall:

c maintain the goods in satisfactory condition;
d give the Company such information relating to the goods as the Company may require from time to time.
9.4 Subject to clause 9.5 you may resell or use the goods in the ordinary course of its business (but not otherwise) before the Company receives payment for the goods. However, if you resell the goods before that time:
a You do so as principal and not as the Company’s agent; and
b title to the goods shall pass from the Company to you immediately before the time at which resale by you occurs.
9.5 Until such time as property in the goods passes from the Company to you, you shall upon request deliver up to the Company such of the goods as have not ceased to be in existence or re-sold by you. If you fail to do so the Company may enter upon any premises owned, occupied or controlled by you where the goods are situated and repossess the goods.

14. YOUR RIGHTS TO CANCEL AND APPLICABLE REFUND
14.1 Before the goods are delivered, you have the following rights to cancel an order for goods (other than made-to-order goods):

This will not affect your refund for the goods themselves, but the Company will not refund any charges for delivery and any charge for collection will be deducted from the refund that is due to you.
