Our products

The images of the Products on our site or in our Brochures are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display and describe the products accurately, your Products may vary slightly from those images and descriptions.

The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on images on our site.

How we use your personal information

We only use your personal information in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

If you are a consumer

If you are a consumer, you may only purchase Products or Services from us if you are at least 18 years old.

If you are a business customer

If you are not a consumer, you confirm that you have authority to bind any business on whose behalf you purchase Products or Services, as appropriate.

These Terms and any document expressly referred to in them constitutes the entire agreement between you and us and supersedes and extinguishes all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between us, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.

You acknowledge that in entering into this Contract you do not rely on any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether made innocently or negligently) that is not set out in these Terms or any document expressly referred to in them.

You and we agree that neither of us shall have any claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in this Contract.

How the contract is formed between you and us

If you are purchasing from our site, our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.

After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted.

If we are unable to supply you with a Product which you have requested or to provide you with a Service, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because of an error in the price on our site or in our Brochure, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products or Services, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.

Our right to vary these terms

We amend these Terms from time to time.

Every time you order Products or Services from us, the Terms in force at the time of your order will apply to the Contract between you and us.

If we have to revise these Terms as they apply to your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the Contract if you are not happy with the changes. You may cancel either in respect of all the affected Products or Services, or just the Products or Services you have yet to receive. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.

Your consumer right of return and refund

This only applies if you are a consumer.

You have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 during the period set out below. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep a Product or receive Services, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of:

  • any Product which has been personalised by you or which includes the representation of a date upon it including, but not limited to, trophies, medals, clothing and event numbers.

  • sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these Products are unsealed after you receive them.

  • any Products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.

Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the Contract then depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered, as set out in the table below:

Your Contract End of the cancellation period

Your Contract is for the purchase of a single Product (which is not delivered in instalments on separate days).

The end date is the end of 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.

Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the Product on 10 January you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January.

Your Contract is for either of the following:

one Product which is delivered in instalments on separate days.

multiple Products which are delivered on separate days.

The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the last instalment of the Product or the last of the separate Products ordered.

Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January and you receive the first instalment of your Product or the first of your separate Products on 10 January and the last instalment or last separate Product on 15 January you may cancel in respect of all instalments and any or all of the separate Products at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 29 January.

Your Contract is for the regular delivery of a Product over a set period.

The end date is 14 days after the day on which you receive the first delivery of the Products.

Example: if we provide you with a Dispatch Confirmation on 1 January in respect of Products to be delivered at regular intervals over a year and you receive the first delivery of your Product on 10 January, you may cancel at any time between 1 January and the end of the day on 24 January. 24 January is the last day of the cancellation period in respect of all Products to arrive during the year.

Your Contract is for the performance of Services.

The end date is 14 days after the day on which we send you our Order Acknowledgement, or from the date upon which we start supplying Services to you, whichever is the earlier.

To cancel a Contract, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. You can e-mail us at info@transporterenergy.co.uk or call on 01323 405375 or write to Transporter Energy, Lower Dicker, Hailsham, East Sussex, BN21 4BG. If you are e-mailing us or writing to us, please include details of your order to help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the e-mail or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or e-mail us before midnight on that day.

If you cancel your Contract for the purchase or Hire of Products we will:

  • refund you the price you paid for the Products. However, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop.

  • refund any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum refund will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer (provided that this is a common and generally acceptable method). For example, if we offer delivery of a Product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the Product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.

  • make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within the deadlines indicated below:

    • if you have received the Product and we have not offered to collect it from you: 14 days after the day on which we receive the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Product back to us.

    • if you have not received the Product or you have received it and we have offered to collect it from you: 14 days after you inform us of your decision to cancel the Contract.

If you have authorised us to commence provision of Services which you have ordered, prior to the end of the cancellation period, and you then cancel the Contract you will be liable to pay us for the Services which we have performed and if we have completed the provisions of Services prior to your cancellation you will be liable to pay us for the full value of the Services as set out in the Contract. We will refund you any price you have paid for the Services which have not been performed by us prior to the date of your cancellation. Any sums due to us which have not been paid to you will be payable within 10 days of the date we request payment.

Under the Consumer Rights Act you have an early right to reject goods that are unsatisfactory quality, unfit for purpose or not as described, and get a full refund. This right is limited to 30 days from the date you took ownership of the goods (this could be the date of purchase or the date the goods were delivered to you - whichever is later).

After the initial 30 days, you can't demand a full refund in the first instance, but you still have the right to a repair or replacement - including electrical faulty goods.

If you have returned the Products to us because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Products in full, together with any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.

We will refund any sums due to you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay. If you used vouchers to pay for the Product or Services we may refund you in vouchers.

If a Product has been delivered to you before you decide to cancel your Contract:

  • you must return it to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days after the day on which you let us know that you wish to cancel the Contract;

  • unless the Product is faulty or not as described, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us. If the Product is one which cannot be returned by post, we estimate that if you use the carrier which delivered the Product to you, these costs should not exceed the sums we charged you for delivery.

Because you are a consumer, we are under a legal duty to supply Products and/or Services that are in conformity with this Contract. As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 9 or anything else in these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

Delivery

We will contact you with an estimated delivery date, which will be within 30 days after the date of the Dispatch Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order). Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control.

Delivery of an Order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us or complete the provision of Services. Any Products will be your responsibility from that time.

In the case of Products purchased by you, you own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.

This clause only applies if you are a consumer, purchasing Products.

If we miss the 30 day delivery deadline for any Products then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following apply:

  • we have refused to deliver the Products;

  • delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances);

  • or, you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.

If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your Order if we do not meet the new deadline.

If you do choose to cancel your Order for late delivery, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your Order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products and their delivery.

Price of products and delivery charges

The prices for purchase of the Products or the provision of Services will be as quoted either on our site or in our Brochure or in our quotations as the case may be at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices are correct.

Prices for our Products and Services may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.

The prices shown for the purchase of a Product or the provision of Services do not include VAT, but you will be charged VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery of the Products or the provision of the Services, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. To check relevant delivery charges, please refer to our Delivery Charges page.

It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products or Services on our site or in our Brochure may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:

  • where the Product's or Service’s correct price is less than the price stated on our site or in our Brochure, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product or providing the Service to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Product or the Service to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and

  • if the Product's or Service’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site or in our Brochure, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product or Service at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.

How to pay

You can only pay for Products or Services using a debit card or credit card. We accept all major credit and debit cards with the exception of American Express.

Payment for Products and Services and all applicable delivery charges is in advance. We will not charge your debit card or credit card until we dispatch your order or provide your Services.

Manufacturer Guarantees

The Products we sell to you come with a manufacturer's guarantee. For details of the applicable terms and conditions, please refer to the manufacturer's guarantee provided with the Products.

If you are a consumer, a manufacturer's guarantee is in addition to, and does not affect, your legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

Our liability if you are a business

This only applies if you are a business customer.

Nothing in these Terms limits or excludes our liability for:

  • death or personal injury caused by our negligence;

  • fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;

  • breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (title and quiet possession); or

  • defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

Subject to the above, we will under no circumstances whatever be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with the Contract for:

  • any loss of profits, sales, business, or revenue;

  • loss or corruption of data, information or software;

  • loss of business opportunity;

  • loss of anticipated savings;

  • loss of goodwill; or

  • any indirect or consequential loss.

Subject to the above, our total liability to you in respect of all losses arising under or in connection with the Contract, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, shall in no circumstances exceed the value of the Contract.

Except as expressly stated in these Terms, we do not give any representation, warranties or undertakings in relation to the Products. Any representation, condition or warranty which might be implied or incorporated into these Terms by statute, common law or otherwise is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. In particular, we will not be responsible for ensuring that the Products are suitable for your purposes.

Our liability if you are a consumer

This only applies if you are a consumer.

If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Terms or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is an obvious consequence of our breach or if it was contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into this contract.

You agree not to use the product for any commercial, business or resale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

We do not in any way exclude or limit our liability for:

  • death or personal injury caused by our negligence;

  • fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;

  • any breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (title and quiet possession);

  • any breach of the terms implied by section 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (description, satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose and samples); and

  • defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

Events outside our control

We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control.

An Event Outside Our Control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.

If an Event Outside Our Control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under a Contract:

  • we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and

  • our obligations under a Contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event Outside Our Control. Where the Event Outside Our Control affects our delivery of Products or the provision of Services to you, we will arrange a new delivery date for Products or a new provision date for Services with you after the Event Outside Our Control is over.

You may cancel a Contract affected by an Event Outside Our Control which has continued for more than 60 days. To cancel please contact us. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received and we will refund the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.

Communications between us

When we refer, in these Terms, to "in writing", this will include e-mail.

If you are a consumer you may contact us by e-mail us at info@transporterenergy.co.uk, call on 01323 405375 or write to Transporter Energy, Lower Dicker, Hailsham, East Sussex, BN21 4BG. If you are emailing us or writing to us, please include details of your order to help us to identify it.

If you are a business:

Any notice or other communication in connection with the Contract shall be in writing and shall be delivered personally, sent by pre-paid first-class post or other next working day delivery service or e-mail.

A notice or other communication shall be deemed to have been received: if delivered personally, when left at our registered office; if sent by pre-paid first-class post or other next working day delivery service, at 9.00 am on the second Business Day after posting or if sent by e-mail, one Business Day after transmission.

In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that such e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee.

The provisions of this clause shall not apply to the service of any proceedings or other documents in any legal action.

Other important terms

We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.

You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing. However if you are a consumer and you have purchased a Product as a gift, you may transfer the benefit of our warranty to the recipient of the gift without needing to ask our consent.

This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise. However, if you are a consumer, the recipient of your gift of a Product will have the benefit of our warranty, but we and you will not need their consent to cancel or make any changes to these Terms.

Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

If you are a consumer, please note that these Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Products through our site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.

If you are a business, a Contract and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales.

If you are a business, we both irrevocably agree that the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a Contract or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
