1. Site owner: Monument Tools Limited is a company registered in England and Wales under number 281817. We manufacture and sell plumbing, drainage and related equipment to customers located in the United Kingdom and overseas. Our business is based in England at Restmor Way, Hackbridge, Surrey, SM6 7AH and our VAT registration number is GB217810281.

2. Business customers: This site has been produced for our business customers. We do sell to consumers, but not on the terms and conditions set out here. If you are a consumer and wish to place an order then please contact us for further information.

3. Account customers: Sales on this site are meant mainly for our business customers that do not hold an account with us. Please note that if you are an account holder and you make an on-line purchase then these terms and conditions will apply to the purchase, rather than your account holder terms and conditions.

4. Customers located overseas: This site has been produced for our United Kingdom customers. We do not make on-line sales to customers located overseas, but we do make non-Internet sales to overseas customers. Please see clause 5 for further details.

5. Non-Internet sales: These terms and conditions apply only to on-line sales. If you are a business customer and wish to place an order other than via this site then please click here for the terms and conditions that will apply to such sale.

6. Our offerings: All items offered for sale by us on this site are offered on an "invitation to treat" basis only. This means that we are not obliged to sell you an item on the terms stated until we have dispatched the item to you.

7. Site content and product information: Although we take pride in this site please note that the information posted on it may be inaccurate, incomplete or out of date.  In particular, some details of our products, such as colour and dimensions, may not be a true representation. The contents of this site, including product prices, delivery charges, and product details are subject to change at any time without notice.

All our products are either finished products or spares intended for incorporation within our finished products or specified third party products. Finished products are not intended for incorporation within other products and spares are intended for incorporation only within the relevant specified finished product(s).

8. Prices: The prices payable for the items we offer for sale are clearly displayed on this site in pounds sterling. Our prices are exclusive of value added tax and, except as set out in clause 11, do not include the cost of delivery. Where applicable, delivery charges and value added tax will be added to the price of the products you order.

9. Placing an order on-line: The site guides you through the detailed steps required to place an order on-line.

Once you have found the products you are looking for, you order them by clicking on the "Add to Cart" button. Once you have selected all products you wish to buy, click on the "Checkout Now" button, which will take you to your complete shopping basket. The shopping basket will show the total price payable by you for the ordered products, including all delivery charges and value added tax. We will then ask you to complete your invoicing, delivery and other details. All fields in yellow must be completed. Please tick the "I accept the Terms and Conditions" to confirm you have read and understood the terms and conditions. Once completed, click on the "Next" button.
You will then have the opportunity to make a final check of your shopping basket before entering your payment details. Again, all fields in yellow must be completed. Your details will be encrypted to keep them secure. Having completed your payment details select "Finish" to submit your order. You can remove or change the products in your shopping basket or stop the ordering process at any time prior to clicking on the "Finish" button. After this point it is not possible to change or cancel your order except as set out in clause 11.
By clicking on the "Finish" Button you warrant and represent to us that: you are ordering and buying the products you have ordered in the course of your business; you are authorised by your business to place an order for, and buy, the products for and on its behalf; your business has the necessary funds to be able to buy the ordered products; and the information you have provided to us as part of the ordering process is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
All our contracts are concluded in English. Your order will be based upon our product prices and delivery charges, and the value added tax rate, in force at the time you submit your order. If the product prices, delivery charges or value added tax rate are different from those published on this site then this will be brought to your attention before we accept your order. Please note that we may decline to accept an order at our discretion.

10. Accepting an order: We will send you written confirmation by email that we have received your order. This confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of your order. We accept your order at the time we dispatch the ordered products to you and it is at this moment that a contract of sale is made between you and us for the sale by us to you of the products specified in your order. Please note that we rely on the warranties and representations you give us in clause 9 when accepting your order. Each contract of sale is subject to these terms and conditions to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions.

11. Delivery: If the products you order are in stock then we aim to dispatch the products to you within two working days of the day we receive your order. Please note that the day we receive your order may not be the same day you place the order, for example if you place the order on a Saturday, Sunday or English bank holiday. If the products are not in stock then we will dispatch the products to you once they are in stock.
Please note that we cannot, and do not, guarantee to deliver products by any particular date. We accept no liability for any loss or damage you may suffer as a result of our failure to deliver products on or by a particular date.  
We will deliver products to the delivery address you specify in your order using our standard delivery service, which usually delivers products within three working days of dispatch. We will not charge you for standard delivery of products with a total net value (i.e. including any discounts, but excluding delivery charges and value added tax) of more than £130 or such other figure as we may determine at our absolute discretion from time to time. We will charge you for standard delivery of smaller orders at cost.
You must make all arrangements necessary to take delivery of products when we deliver them to you, including providing labour and suitable unloading equipment for the unloading of delivered products. If you do not accept delivery of products or we are unable to deliver or are delayed in delivering products because of your actions or omissions then we may charge you and you will be liable to pay us for all costs we incur as a result.
We may supply products either all on one date or by separate batches on different dates from time to time. Either you or we can, by notice, cancel an order if we are unable to supply the products within a reasonable time, and if this happens, neither party can make any claim against the other. If an order is cancelled and some of the ordered products have been supplied then the cancellation will only apply to the products that have not been supplied (which in this context does not include products that have been dispatched and are in transit at the time of cancellation).

12. Payment: You can pay by MasterCard, Visa or Switch. Authority for payment is given at the time you submit your order. You will not be charged for items until your order is dispatched. We will send you an invoice for the products you order on or around the date we dispatch the products to you.

13. Title and risk: We own all products that you order from us until we receive from you in cleared funds all monies due to us in relation to the products, at which time title to the products passes from us to you. Risk in the products passes to you on delivery.
 
14. Warranty: We warrant to you that each of the products we supply to you is of satisfactory quality. We also warrant that each of the products we supply to you is free from defects in materials and workmanship at the date we dispatch the product.
The warranties and conditions set out in these terms and conditions are in lieu of all other conditions, warranties or other terms concerning the supply or purported supply of, failure to supply or delay in supplying any of the products that you order from us and which might but for this clause be implied or incorporated into any dealings between you and us or any contract of sale by statute, common law or otherwise, all of which are excluded to the extent permitted by law.

15. Conformity of products: We recommend you check that the products we sell to you conform to your order as soon as possible after the date we deliver the products.
If you do not receive all of the products or you find that any of the products do not conform to these terms and conditions then you must notify us of this fact in writing within 7 days of the date we invoice you for the products. If we do not receive notification from you within this period then you will be deemed to have accepted that: you have received the right quantity of products; the products are free from damage; and the products conform to these terms and conditions.
If you notify us that you have not received all of the products for which you have been invoiced then you must promptly provide us with reasonable evidence supporting your claim. If we accept your claim then we will by way of full and final settlement of all our obligations and liabilities to you in relation to the claim either: refund any monies you have paid to us for the unreceived products; or dispatch to you the unreceived products.
If you notify us that any of the products you receive were damaged whilst they were at our risk or do not conform to these terms and conditions then you must promptly return the products to us and provide us with reasonable evidence supporting your claim. If we accept your claim then we will by way of full and final settlement of all our obligations and liabilities to you in relation to the claim either: refund any monies you have paid to us for the damaged/non-conforming products; repair the damaged/non-conforming products; or replace them with products that conform with these terms and conditions.
