Terms & Conditions
Our policy is to:
We hope to never need to resort to the “small print” but here it is, just in case, so that both parties know exactly where we stand! Full Terms of Business Definitions “We”, “us” or “the company” means Unitruck Ltd “You”, “the customer” or “the buyer” means the person, company or entity contracting to purchase the goods. “The goods” are the items that you order from us as specified by our order acknowledgement and on our invoice.
If we acknowledge an order but, for some reason outside our control, we are unable to complete the transaction within 28 days then any payment made will be refunded immediately if you ask us to do so. Refunds due against returned goods will be paid as soon as the returned goods are received by us, subject to the goods being received in unused, undamaged condition in their original packaging.
We endeavour to ensure that all published prices are correct, however, we reserve the right to change prices without notice and not to accept orders at prices that have been quoted in error. Prices are quoted in pounds sterling and unless specifically stated are subject to VAT at the prevailing rate.
Payments may only be made by credit card and PayPal (via our web site). Large business customers may be offered credit facilities at our discretion and subject to appropriate checks and references. Interest at 3% per annum over the Nat West plc base rate, together with any expenses incurred in collecting payments, will be added to the invoiced prices on any overdue accounts.
All credit card payments made during on-line transactions are handled on our behalf by the SagePay secure payment gateway and handled using SSL 128-bit encryption. No credit card details are processed or stored at any time on the company’s web site.
Most orders received by noon (Monday to Friday) are usually despatched on the same day and the vast majority within 48 hours of receipt, subject to stock availability. To check the status of your order, please see the My Orders page. Orders are delivered by the most appropriate method, usually first class post or courier. Orders should generally be delivered within 2 or 3 working days of the despatch date, but this is not guaranteed. Please note that Royal Mail post may take up to 15 working days for delivery. Until this period is over, we are unable to replace or refund orders sent by standard delivery. If you require an order to be delivered urgently, please contact us to make the necessary arrangements. A next-day delivery service may be available. If you arrange an urgent delivery, there is still no absolute guarantee that it will be delivered the next day, as despite our best efforts, courier failure/errors and ‘acts of god’ may still occur. Therefore, while every effort will be made to have your goods delivered on time, Unitruck Ltd accepts no responsibility for any costs incurred as a result of delayed delivery. If delivery is delayed excessively, we will do our utmost to inform you as soon as possible. We are happy to give you the option of purchasing alternative items or receiving a full refund of any payments that you have made. If we are unable to deliver within 28 days of ordering, we will always give you the option of receiving a full refund of any payments made. Delivery charges quoted are for UK mainland destinations only using our standard delivery methods. For deliveries over 1.5kg to the Scottish Highlands and Northern Ireland, off-shore destinations and express services, please contact our sales office for a quotation. Please note that most orders weighing more than approximately 1.5 kg and any valuable deliveries are delivered by courier and will require a signature on delivery. Please ensure that you provide a delivery address where someone will be available between 9.00 and 17.00 Monday to Friday to accept delivery. If our couriers are unable to deliver an order due to the address being unmanned, a card will be left asking you to contact them directly to arrange re-delivery. If no contact is made within 2 days the order will be returned to us and a re-delivery charge will be levied to cover our re-delivery costs.

Unitruck reserves the right to refuse the use of any or all promotions, discounts and coupons for orders placed online. The offer code is applied to the value of the order (excluding delivery charge except special Free Delivery promotion), full-price items only unless clearly stated otherwise. Discounts cannot be combined and only one offer can be applied to any order. The offer code must be entered into the Discount Codes field on the basket page and applied for the discount to be deducted from the order.
Delivery is ex-works, and risk pass to the customer on delivery.
