Accounts should be received at our Cheshunt Office by 21st of the month following date of invoice to qualify for any settlement discount offered. Accounts that are not cleared in full by the last day of the month will be temporarily suspended and under these circumstances no order can be processed for dispatch. This affects back orders and advanced orders in the same way. Like most companies we have a strict and established credit control procedure. If accounts are not paid to terms we do employ the services of CPA (Credit Protection Association PLC). CPA provide debt collection on our behalf and we strongly advise customers to respond to the standard credit control letters to avoid litigation.

  11. Prices Ruling at Time of Despatch:

    Only shortages, Invoice Discrepancies or goods delivered damaged reported by phone, or in writing, WITHIN THREE WORKING DAYS of receipt of order will be considered. Customers are advised to check and sign for the actual number of cartons received and to mark the delivery sheet “short delivered” or “damaged” when appropriate. Claims cannot be entertained where an incorrect number of parcels have been signed for or the goods have been signed as “received in good condition”. Customers are respectfully requested to double check contents before claiming.
