Most orders are delivered within the stated time. Many of our deliveries require a signature on receipt. If possible please quote a delivery address where a signature can be given during working hours.
Prices for delivery shall be charged as detailed on our website and we shall be entitled to change these at our discretion. Orders from countries outside the UK or Europe will be despatched at our discretion and the actual cost of shipping, including an allowance for packaging in the case of unusual shaped or bulky items, billed or debited accordingly. In some cases the standard carriage charges are not sufficient due to the heavy or bulky nature of the goods. We reserve the right to levy a carriage surcharge in such circumstances and will contact you to obtain agreement of the increased cost prior to shipment. We can also deal with an exporter or forwarder – contact us for details.
1st Machine Tool Accessories Limited endeavour to hold sufficient stock to despatch all orders within 2-3 working days. However, some items, particularly the more specialist, may be out of stock due to unexpected demand. Goods which are either not in stock, or are special orders, may take up to 7-10 days for delivery. Notification will be given if this time period will be exceeded.
If we shall be unable, through circumstances beyond our control (including without limitation lack of shipping instructions from you), to deliver the goods within 14 days after notification to you or your agent that the goods are ready for delivery, we shall be entitled to arrange storage on your behalf, whereupon delivery shall be deemed to have taken place, all risk in the goods shall pass to you and delivery to you of the relevant warehouse receipt shall be deemed to be delivery of the goods for the purposes of these Conditions. All charges incurred by us for storage or insurance shall be paid by you within 30 days of submission of an invoice.
