Terms and Conditions
This website, found under the www.oatesandco.com URL is operated by Oates & Co. Ltd. Any references to Oates & Co. Ltd and ‘we’, ‘us’ and ‘our’ shall be deemed to be references to Oates & Co. Ltd. Any references to ‘you’, and ‘your’ shall be deemed to be references to persons placing an order via the www.oatesandco.com website. These terms & conditions also cover our emails and any other associated promotional activity.
When placing an order with us it will be deemed that you have read, understood and agreed to these Terms & Conditions. If you are unhappy with any part of these terms and conditions, you should contact us before placing an order with us either by phone on 0843 8867 567, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by post at the address given below.
By placing an order through our website you are making an offer to Oates & Co. Ltd to purchase the goods outlined in your order upon the terms described in your order.
When you place an order, we require your name, address, phone, email address and payment credit or debit card details. This information is required in order to process your request or inform you of acceptance of your order. A contact phone number is needed so we can get in touch if there’s a problem with your order. We may, unless you inform us otherwise, provide our couriers with your contact phone number in case they need to reach you to arrange the delivery of your order.
After placing an order online, we will provide you with confirmation that your order has been received but this is not confirmation that your offer to buy the items has been accepted. Our contract for the sale of our products will only exist once an order has been accepted, processed and dispatched to you.
Please note that we will not be able to meet any obligations as a result of any of the following reasons:
- If the product you ordered is out of stock
- If we are unable to authorise your payment
- If it is identified that there is a product description or pricing error
- If customers do not reach any order criteria outlined in the Terms & Conditions
- If our delivery companies are temporarily unable to deliver due to exceptional conditions that are beyond our control including hazardous weather and accidents.
Should there be an issue with your order, we will contact you either by phone or email. If we have issues authorising payment we will contact you via email or phone and you will have 48 hours to respond. Failure to do so may result in your order being cancelled.
Oates & Co. Ltd reserve the right to reject any offer of purchase by you at any point. Please note that whilst we shall make every effort and reasonable care to keep your order details and payment secure, we cannot be responsible for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any information that you supply when accessing or ordering from the Oates & Co. website.
International Delivery is available on certain products. Please email us for further information.
Please ensure that you check all items on receipt, as faulty or damaged items must be reported within eight working days of receiving the parcel.
Website Product Pricing & Descriptions
Every product bought is sold subject to its product description which details any further specific conditions that relate to that product including, without restriction, terms and conditions that regarding approximate delivery dates/times, warranties, after-sales support and guarantees.
We undertake all reasonable care to ensure that all the details, prices and descriptions of products on our website are accurate at the time when they are entered onto our system. Whilst every attempt is made to keep the website as up-to-date and accurate as is possible, there may be rare occasions when the information on the website (including product descriptions) at a certain time may not reflect the position exactly at the time an order is placed. We do not give any warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of the information and cannot be responsible for any errors or omissions or for the results arising from the use of such information. Please note that we are unable to confirm the price of a product until your order is accepted in line with our order acceptance conditions. We take every care to ensure that the description and specification of our products are correct. However, specifications and descriptions of products on this website are soley to provide an idea of the goods they describe and do not form part of the contract between you and us and are not intended to be binding. Furthermore, while the colour reproduction of the products is a close representation, we cannot accept any responsibility for any variation in colour caused by the browser software or computer system used to view the products.
Goods are faulty if they are received damaged or where a manufacturing fault occurs within six months of purchase; however this does not include the results of normal wear and tear. We extend a one year guarantee for all electrical items. If an item is returned to us as faulty and we feel it is down to natural wear and tear a refund or replacement will not be issued.
If you are not happy with products you have chosen and received, you are entitled to cancel this contract if you so wish under the Distance Selling Regulations, provided you exercise your right no longer than eight working days after the day on which you receive the products (excluding made to order items). We do however pride ourselves on our commitment to the highest levels of customer service and will consider every situation on a case by case basis, subject to the situation, after this period.
If you you wish to cancel your order prior to dispatch, please contact us on email@example.com or 0843 886 7567. Please note that there may be occasions when a cancellation request is received after an order has been processed and dispatched. If your order has already been dispatched we will be more than happy to offer you an exchange or, if you wish, a refund provided that the products are returned complete and in an acceptable condition. Where possible we would ask that you return the items with the original packaging. Please note that, with the exception of faulty items or goods damaged in transit, we are not responsible for return postage. Where goods are delivered to a third party you will need to be able to return the goods you ordered to us to be able to exercise this right.
Items Not Received
If you contact us to say that you have not received your order we will require you to sign a non receipt form before we can resend your order. This can be sent via email or by the post and must be received back within 7 days.

Once we receive the whole order back we will issue a full refund including the original delivery charge paid. Please note this does not apply to personalised items, which cannot be returned unless faulty or damaged.
Please see above for information on our Returns Policy. With the exception of faulty items or goods damaged in transit, please note that we are not responsible for return postage.
