T's & C's

 
Guarantees
 
The majority of the products we sell online are supplied with supplier guarantees, for example; lever sets can be supplied with a 10 year suppliers mechanical guarantee, which covers the mechanical spring part with the lever set, if this were to go faulty within the 10 year period (from date of invoice) the supplier will either fix or replace that faulty lever.
 
We are happy to announce that all items on our website are guaranteed for 1 Year, subject to due care and attention via cleaning and oiling where necessary, and that the product(s) are fitted within the right environment and have not been personally damaged or tampered with, and also fitted properly and efficiently.
 
For example: Beeswax products are pure metal based with no anti rust or corrosion properties, so when exposed to moisture or damp environments they will start to rust. So for every beeswax product(s) we advise 'to be fitted for internal use only', thus if fitted externally then this voids the guarantee supplied.
 
Ordering Online
 
We'll try to make your experience ordering online with us as simple and secure as possible. We use a secure payment system called Sagepay, an industry leading merchant payment system for simplicity and security aspects. Through this we take payment via credit card, debit card and PayPal.
 
We are not believers in sharing information. Any personal information provided will not be shared with any third party agents, so be safe in the knowledge that your data and information will be stored safely and securely.
 
Promo-Codes
 
We only provide Promo Codes once agreed upon with the customer, or if listed upon our website, or headed under our official name via social media outlets. We do not list or outsource promo codes on 3rd party websites (any found are fake or out of date and will not work).
 
We have rolling automatic promotions where no code is required to apply the discount, as this will change once total amount target has been reached.
