By placing an order via this website you are making an offer to The Ratchet Shop Ltd to purchase the goods detailed in your order upon the terms described in your order.
Once you have placed an order we will send you a confirmation that your order has been received but this is not a confirmation that your offer to purchase the goods has been accepted. A contract between you and The Ratchet Shop Ltd for the sale of our products will only exist once an order has been accepted, processed and despatched to you. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Prices and availability of goods are subject to change without notice. A delivery charge will be added to your order value where appropriate. Please see our delivery times and charges.
All orders received and accepted before 1.30pm will, subject to availability and where possible, be despatched on that same day for a next working day delivery for all UK Mainland orders. If you live outside the UK Mainland, please see our delivery information page for delivery times. Those orders received and accepted after 1.30pm will be deemed as received the following day and will be despatched the day after unless we inform you otherwise. All dates quoted for delivery are estimated delivery dates only and may be subject to change. We offer next day delivery on all orders but we do not accept liability for orders that for a reason out of our control do not get delivered in the time frame we offer. We can accept no liability for any loss or damage (whether direct or indirect) if delivery takes place at any time other than the estimated date for delivery. If you have stated to have your parcel left at your premises without being signed for, we accept no liability for the goods once they are delivered.

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.

If an item goes out of stock and it has not been updated on the website we will call you to discuss how you would like us to proceed with your order.
If you are not entirely delighted with the products that you have chosen or you have purchased the wrong thing you may return them to us within 30 days of receipt. We will be happy to offer you an exchange or, if you wish, a refund provided that the products are returned complete, in perfect condition, unused, unwashed and with the original packaging.

Items can be returned outside this period if they are found to be faulty but please take extra care to read our Product Care Information page or any specific use/ care instructions provided with your purchase. We cannot accept an item returned as faulty if the appropriate product care instructions have not been followed and the damage caused to the product is clearly due to wear and tear or misuse.

Delivery of Goods
The delivery company will require a person over the age of 18 to sign for goods as proof of receipt. Although we recommend you sign for your own goods, it is not required that the signature be from the specified recipient. If you are not available to sign for your goods, you will receive a calling card from our courier DPD. You will then have to call the number on the card quoting the reference given to arrange a re-delivery. Please be aware that the courier will only attempt to deliver your parcel twice and if they are unsuccessful then the parcel will be returned to our depot. If the fault is not of us or our courier you will be charged again for the redelivery. Please also be aware that if you are not in or the courier cannot locate you, the parcel may be left with your neighbour. If you do not want this to happen we must be made aware of this at the time of your order. If the parcel is left with your neighbour we cannot be held responsible if the items go missing.
Please note that if your parcel does not arrive in the time we have allocated to your country/area then please contact us as soon as possible so we can sort this problem out for you straight away. Without fail we have your parcel out for delivery in the time frame we allocate, however we use an external courier company DPD and with that we cannot always account for your parcels whereabouts unless we are aware that there is a problem with it. If it is a matter of urgency that your parcel is with you at the time we have promised then please follow up your order with a call to our office so we can make sure we are tracking your parcel to the door.
