Purchase and Delivery Policy
Order processing will not begin until the VENDOR receives a confirmed order and full payment from the CUSTOMER.
When the CUSTOMER clicks to make a purchase with the VENDOR legal obligations arise and the CUSTOMER’s right to refund of monies charged to the CUSTOMER’s credit card or paid in any other way agreed by the VENDOR, are limited by the VENDOR’s terms & conditions. The CUSTOMER must not make any purchase through this site unless the CUSTOMER understands and agrees to all the VENDOR’s terms and conditions. Once payment for the purchase is made, it is deemed that the CUSTOMER has read and understood the terms and conditions for such purchase. If the CUSTOMER has any queries please contact the VENDOR before making any purchase for any product(s) through this website.
The CUSTOMER must supply the correct shipping address as title and risk will pass to the CUSTOMER once the order has left the VENDOR’s premises.
The VENDOR uses door-to-door couriers to addresses in South Africa. Once an order and payment has been received, an order will be dispatched within one working day, and should be delivered within 5 working days. Any action prohibiting delivery (e.g. strike action) beyond our control may increase the time taken for delivery. We do not accept any liability whatsoever for late delivery.
Orders for addresses outside South Africa will be processed interactively with the CUSTOMER, and delivery times will be determined once all documentation/payment requirements have been met.
Occasionally packages are returned to the VENDOR as undeliverable. Should this event take place every attempt will be made to contact the CUSTOMER to make arrangements for re-shipment.
Lead time is dependent on stock availability. Should the VENDOR have stock available, orders will be dispatched within one working day provided payment is validated/received before 13:00 hours.
Every effort is made to effect shipment of orders timeously; however unforeseen circumstances may cause delays. Should such an occurrence occur the VENDOR will contact the CUSTOMER via e-mail and provide a revised shipping schedule.
Should the CUSTOMER, for any reason, wish to cancel the purchase, complete unused and undamaged kits may be returned to the VENDOR. The CUSTOMER must advise the VENDOR in writing (e-mail or fax) of such cancellation and any such cancellation must be signed by the person who made the original purchase. Freight charges to return the kit will be paid for by the CUSTOMER. A 10% handling fee will be charged on all returned kits. Returns will only be accepted within 21 days after the purchase date. On receipt of the kit, a refund transaction will be put through against the credit card used at the time of purchase.
A copy of the refund transaction will be sent to the e-mail address used at the time of the purchase.
Payment and Pricing
All transactions will be processed in South African Rands (ZAR).
The total order price includes the purchase price plus any applicable sales tax and freight charges (on the day the order is dispatched).
The VENDOR reserves the right to change pricing at any time without prior notice.
