Acceptance of Terms
By accessing the content of https://socal.co.uk/ (‘the Website’) you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set out herein and accept our privacy policy. If you object to any of the terms and conditions set out in this agreement you should not use any of the products or services on the website and leave immediately. You agree that you shall not use the website for illegal purposes and will respect all applicable laws and regulations. You agree not to use the website in a way that may impair the performance, corrupt the content or otherwise reduce the overall functionality of the website.

We shall retain ownership of all goods until full payment is received. The goods shall be at your risk immediately on receipt of the delivery.

Our goal is to deliver your order to you as quickly and efficiently as possible. The vast majority of them are delivered within 5 clear working days from the receipt of the order, some maybe next day. Where ever possible, we aim to dispatch your order either the same or following working day, but delivery can take 2-3 days. If for some reason we can’t meet our goal and delivery is expected to be longer than 5 clear working days, we will phone you or email you with an expected delivery date. We may contact you to confirm delivery of high value or fragile items. Delivery times to addresses outside the UK will be longer. Most orders from the EU will be delivered within 15 working days. We dispatch most orders using Amazon Shipping or DPD, however larger or fragile items are normally dispatched with Acclaim Logistics. Where possible, hazardous items are dispatched using our own vehicles. Where ever possible, we will email you tracking information on the day of dispatch. We may decline to deliver if: We believe that it would be unsafe, unlawful or unreasonably difficult to do so; or the premises (or the access to them) are unsuitable for our vehicles. If you need to contact us about a delivery, please have your order ID or invoice number to hand.

We offer a full 12 months guarantee on all products, which is supplemented in some cases by a longer manufacturers guarantee.
