How a contract for the sale of products is formed:

After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy the relevant products. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the products have been dispatched (the Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.

The Contract will relate only to those products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other products which may have been part of your order until we confirm the dispatch of such products in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

If your order is conditional on all items being supplied, please specify this in the “additional comments” box at the point of purchase.

Orders for Goods:

When you order products on this website, you confirm that you are purchasing the products in your basket and that you will pay for these products in full. If you have selected an offline order you confirm that it is your intention to purchase these products and that you will dispatch payment without delay. Prices stated on this site are all inclusive of VAT. Goods are not sold on a trial basis.

Product descriptions:

Product descriptions on this site can change at any time, for example when a product is updated by the manufacturer. Changes will not affect products for which you have already received a Dispatch Confirmation.

Delivery of products:

We will send the products to the address you state when placing the order . When you make a purchase using a credit/debit card, we will only deliver the products to your card’s registered address.

Ceritech Audio offers fast, efficient and effective delivery on all products ordered through our website. We want to deliver your goods to you as soon as we possibly can, indeed a large percentage of our orders are delivered the very next working day. However, because your order may not be in stock with us and we have to wait for delivery from the manufacturers, please allow 7 to 10 working days from placing your order for delivery. We will deliver the products by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Once the products have been delivered, they are your responsibility and at your risk.
If the products are lost or damaged in transit, please let us know as soon as possible.
Delivery of all products which are available in stock will be completed as a door-to-door service in the UK mainland only. We currently do not ship outside the UK. Certain products cannot be delivered to extreme parts of the UK where other products will incur an additional delivery charge. If you have a query about delivery, you can contact us on 01600 716362 or 01594 540268.

To give you this effective delivery service we use two delivery solutions. The item(s) you order will determine the delivery company used.
