Please note, this is not a full and final list of potential charges, and where possible we will advise you of any charges at the point of ordering. Some charges such as waiting time, cancelled deliveries etc are outside of our control.
We do not offer overseas shipping as standard. For distribution overseas, including GB Islands, typically we will deliver to a port or distribution company of your specification. However, if you have a credit account with us and by special arrangement in some circumstances, we can facilitate overseas deliveries.
Please contact the mainland depot nearest your destination with any enquiries and to discuss any acceptance of your order.
Ideally an individual from the company (or individual) who placed the order should be available to sign for the delivery.
It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that all products delivered to site have been received in full, and in keeping with our paperwork.

As C&L is a trade only business, we will only accept returns for products in a sellable condition. A restocking charge up to the value of 50% of the original purchase price will be applied, unless agreed in writing.
All products come with a commitment to pass on manufacturers warranties in good faith, but we do not endorse them, and they form no part of your contract with us. Some manufacturers arrange for engineers to fix problem parts on site. In such cases, we will provide you with the telephone number of the manufacturers after sales team to make the necessary arrangements directly with them. If you are not satisfied with the service they provide then please contact us and we will endeavour to resolve any problems for you.
If you change your mind, you can return the item to us within 48 hours, all items must not be damaged, fitted or altered. There may also be a restocking charge if your handling of the product has caused a reduction in the quality or use.
We do not accept returns for manufactured to orders goods (Specials), or non-essentials range stocked products within the C&L branch network.
