Delivery

For delivery anywhere within the UK mainland orders are liable to a delivery charge of £9.00 plus VAT. The following additional delivery options are available.  Please note prices below are surcharges and are in addition to the standard delivery charge of £9.00:

Next day before 09.00 £40
Next day before 10.30 £30
Next day before 12 noon  £22
Saturday £35


Orders to Ireland are liable to a nominal delivery charge of £18.00 plus VAT for a two day delivery service (not guaranteed).  Next day delivery services are not available for Ireland. Carriage on deliveries outside the UK mainland is chargeable at cost or by quotation.

Although prompt delivery is our aim, any quoted delivery date should be treated as an estimate only and is not of the essence of the contract. Where it is desired that our delivery driver assist in unloading operations (and agrees to do so) this will only be undertaken on the understanding that the customer will assume full responsibility for our driver’s health and safety whilst this is being carried out.

Unless otherwise advised by the buyer, complimentary confectionery maybe added to your order. If the buyer does not wish to receive this, then please advise Klipspringer in writing and this will be noted against your account.

The majority of the packaging supplied is staple free but we cannot guarantee this for all items, so care should be taken when unpacking.

Payment

Payment is to be made at the checkout using a debit or credit card. In the case of approved accounts only, payment is due net within 30 days of invoice date. Invoices and statements may be sent either by post, fax or electronically. Returned or re-presented cheques will incur a charge of £40 per re-presentation. Klipspringer reserves the right to levy a 2% (APR) interest charge, calculated daily for each day the total invoiced amount remains unpaid. The additional charge will remain outstanding should the need arise to secure withheld payment via arbitration or after a court judgement. Payment shall be made in full without any deduction or withholding other than as required by law and the buyer shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set off or counterclaim against Klipspringer in order to justify withholding payment in whole or in part of any amount due.

Reservation of title to goods until payment

Although the risk of damage or loss to the goods shall pass to the buyer immediately upon delivery, the ownership of the goods shall not pass to the buyer until they have been paid for in full and until any other sums which are due to Klipspringer from the buyer have also been paid in full. In the meantime, the buyer shall hold the goods as bailee and trustee for Klipspringer and shall return them to Klipspringer upon request and, if the buyer fails to do so, Klipspringer may enter the premises of the buyer to repossess the goods. Unless the contrary is proved it shall be assumed that the buyer has sold or otherwise parted with possession of goods delivered by Klipspringer in the same order as they were delivered, i.e. first in, first out.

Refunds and Returns

Items correctly supplied against a firm order may not be returned for credit without Klipspringer’s prior agreement and it reserves the right to levy a 15% handling charge. No carriage charge will be re-credited or reimbursed. Goods returned for credit must include the invoice number on which they were purchased before any credit note can be issued and any wrapping must be intact and unmarked.  We regret that where goods, correctly supplied, have been specially overprinted or otherwise personalized, or where items have been designed or modified at customer’s request, Klipspringer Ltd would be unable to accept returns or pass credit against these items

Shortages or non-delivery

Parcels which arrive showing signs of external damage should be inspected prior to acceptance. If the buyer accepts the delivery, then a note of this damage should be made with the courier at the time of delivery, photographic evidence may also be advised. If the buyer believes damage may have also resulted in internal damage to the products the buyer has purchased, then the buyer or their representative may refuse to accept delivery. Please advise Klipspringer as soon as possible so a replacement order can be processed.

If damage to items is found whilst unpacking, then please notify Klipspringer by phone +44 (0)1473 461800 and in writing via email @ sales@klipspringer.com
within 24 hours of delivery or as soon as discovered. 

For shortages, then notification should be by phone or in writing within 3 days of delivery. 

For non-delivery, contact should be made by phone or email on the day after expected delivery to ensure the matter can be investigated with the courier.
