Terms & Conditions
Our success is based on strong traditions of quality, value for money and a genuine care for our customers. Therefore we sincerely apologise in advance for how
extremely boring our Terms and Conditions are; our legal team makes us do it. That being said we want you to know that our Terms and Conditions are designed to
make you aware that we'll never share your private data, our site is secure and your consumer rights are protected.
Without further ado:
eSpares Terms & Conditions
These Terms & Conditions govern your use of the eSpares service and website. By visiting the eSpares website you accept, and agree to, the content of these Terms &
Conditions. We reserve the right to change the Terms & Conditions at any time and it is your responsibility to check regularly before ordering. This does not affect your
Terms of Contract
When you place an order via our website (www.espares.co.uk) we will treat that action as an offer to buy. Once the order
is placed you will receive confirmation in the form of an email and at this time we enter into a contract with you.
Product Specifications & Suitability
Published product details, specifications and suitability information is the best available at the time. eSpares shall not be held responsible for the accuracy
of any advice given regarding the suitability (or otherwise) of any part/s required for the repair of an appliance. If you have ordered an item that has an
unsuitable product description we will remedy this by providing you a full refund upon the return of the item. Please see our
Returns & Refunds page for details.
Manufacturers names are used for reference only. Products listed as a genuine part are made by the manufacturer and generic parts are listed as compatible with the
manufacturer's finished model number.
We encourage you to ensure all spare parts are fitted by a competent person in accordance with manufacturer specifications. eSpares cannot be held liable for any
damage caused by the fitting of a spare part.
Please ensure that you have read your warranty conditions before attempting to install a part or otherwise repair your appliance. eSpares cannot be held responsible
if the appliance is damaged or your warranty is voided. Some manufacturer guarantees may be on condition that you use a qualified technician.
Availability / Estimated Delivery Times
We do our best to ensure availability of all advertised products and endeavour to despatch all parts within the quoted time. If there is a delay we will inform you
of this via email and the product will be despatched as soon as it is available. If you have ordered multiple items they may arrive separately.
eSpares has no liability to you for any delay in the delivery of products ordered. We will do our best to get all orders out as quickly as possible. You have the right to
cancel delayed orders at any time and get a refund via our online Your Account facility or by contacting our
Customer Services department.
Occasionally we find ourselves having to withdraw an item because it has become obsolete or has been discontinued. If you have placed an order for an item that has
been made obsolete we will inform you as soon as possible and offer you an alternative if one is available.
