Order Cancellation/Refused Deliveries
(See also Exchanges/Returns)
You may cancel your order for a full refund prior to your order being shipped or ordered from the manufacturer, though if any costs have been incurred they will be deducted from monies received. If you cancel your order after it has been shipped, you are responsible for any and all freight charges incurred by A-Unit. Any unpaid freight charges will be deducted from your refund. If you refuse to accept delivery of your order for any other reason than the product being damaged in transit, you are liable for all outward and return freight charges
incurred by your refusal. If it is found that any of the larger products upon delivery ‘will not fit’ through any doors/stairwells and the product is subsequently returned/refused, you are responsible for all outward and return carriage costs and a 15% re-stocking fee is applicable.
In all instances the customer is to contact A-Unit Ltd before returning any item. A-Unit will advise on method of return and collection note will be sent to include return reference number. Items should be returned within 30 days in a new and unused condition. Any refund due will be processed upon receipt of item as above. Goods returned for refund will incur carriage costs. Any exchanges will also incur additional delivery charges. A re-stocking charge of 15% of the total value of the Goods will be applied. Above information does not affect your Statutory Rights.
Please note: Due to Health and Safety regulations upstairs deliveries are at the carriers discretion and are not guaranteed. This includes, but not limited to, steps that are immediately outside the premises, which are required to climb in order to gain access to the property.
All orders are processed and shipped in the order that they are received. Normal delivery time is 7 to 10 working days. Delivery times may increase around holidays and peak shipping seasons. The freight delivery service you receive may vary among carrier companies. Since most carriers deliver to the curb side immediately adjacent to their vehicle and regard inside delivery as an extra service cost, it may be necessary for you to assist or move merchandise into your business/home, this is especially relevant if your premises covers several floors as carriers will only deliver to the ground floor entrance to the building. If you have alternative delivery requirements, please contact A-Unit and we can make alternative arrangements. Ideally include two telephone numbers so that the carrier can contact you should they need too. All deliveries are made Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm. Saturday deliveries are available, please contact A-Unit for a low cost quotation. Unfortunately our carriers are unable to give specific times for the delivery service, if you would like a specific time or weekend we would be happy to provide a quotation, please call A-Unit on 01159 720579. A-Uni will not be held responsible for any delays/damages due to third party carriers, nor can we entertain any claims for compensation where the carrier fails to deliver at an agreed time. Any claims for damages to property caused by any third party carrier must be taken up direct with the carrier.
Sports and exercise methods are potentially hazardous. It is advisable before undertaking any new form of exercise to seek medical advice. It is up to the individual to understand the proper techniques associated with safe use of equipment featured in this brochure. Any advice or direction given in this brochure is not a substitute for professional expert instruction. All risks must be accepted by the individual in full.
If you require installation of the product(s), the time between order and installation may be longer than for delivery only, though we always try our hardest to install as soon as possible. We will always try to arrive on time, but will not be held responsible for late arrival due to unforeseen circumstances.
It is imperative that the space for the product(s) has been cleared and that access is unrestricted. Therefore we would ask that you provide A-Unit with as much information as possible concerning the placement of the equipment in to your home, e.g. will it be going through single or double front door, lower / ground / first floor?
It is the customer’s responsibility to check that the installation has been carried out to their satisfaction. If the customer is not present when the installation is completed the installation will be deemed as completed to the customers satisfaction. Any subsequent visits that may be required will be chargeable at the same rate as the first visit.
A-Unit is within its rights to refuse any installation if the installer deems the installation location to be hazardous or the request unreasonable.
If the product does not fit into the area where the installation is requested and a representative of A-Unit did not measure the area, then A-Unit cannot be held responsible, therefore the customer will incur the cost of the visit. Agreed installation times must be adhered too.
If you intend to use our equipment in a hotel, school, etc. (light commercial environment) or health club (full commercial) it is entirely the responsibility of the customer to check with A-Unit that the product is suitable and manufactured to the required standards.
Please provide any further details or information that you think might be useful in making delivery and/or installation easier.
Should you have any queries or comments concerning either the forthcoming delivery of your equipment, or other items from A-Unit, please do not hesitate to contact A-Unit on + 44 (0) 1159 720579.
