Display of Items on the Website
4. All Items offered for sale on the Website are used or “pre-owned” items which we are selling as agents on behalf of private third party sellers. By agreeing to these Terms you acknowledge that in offering to purchase and/or purchasing any Item we act as agent for a Seller (our principal).
5. While we make every effort to describe and display every Item as accurately as possible, you should be aware that the colour and appearance of the Item as displayed on your computer monitor or any other display may differ from the actual colour and appearance of the Item.
6. Items sold through the Website are sold “as is” and accordingly we encourage Buyers to carefully review all photographs and the description of the condition of any Item which they are considering buying. We also encourage you to contact us if you have any queries about an Item before making an offer to buy it, by clicking on the “ask a question” button on the product page or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
7. The stated Price is designed to reflect the fact that the Item is pre-owned, taking into account the condition of the Item and a number of other factors including, without limitation, the original retail price of the Item, the age and style of the Item and other relevant market factors.
8. The display of Items and prices on the Website does not constitute an offer on our part. No Agreement shall come into existence unless and until we accept your order for an Item.
9. Once you have placed your order we will send you an acknowledgement by email. This email is merely a confirmation that we have received your order and does not constitute acceptance of your order.
10. Acceptance of your order will be deemed to occur when we email you to confirm the Item has been despatched to you, at which point an Agreement will come into existence between us. The Agreement shall be governed by these Terms to the exclusion of all other terms, conditions and representations whether written or oral.
11. We reserve the right in our absolute discretion to reject any order that is placed with us and/or to withdraw any Item displayed on the Website at any time before your order is accepted.
12. If you enter into an Agreement with us on behalf of a business, you represent that you have the authority to legally bind the business to the Agreement.

20. Items will be insured by us prior to postage until the Item is delivered. Once you have confirmed receipt of delivery by means of a signature then the responsibility of your purchased goods is then passed to you. If someone else signs for delivery of an Item on your behalf (whether or not they have authority to do so), you shall be treated as having received the Item.
21. We aim to dispatch items within 48 hours of receiving your order (if accepted) Monday to Friday, our office hours for shipping are 9.30 – 17.00 (UK time). We do not accept any liability for failure to dispatch Items within this time frame.

We have no control over these charges and encourage you to contact your local custom office for further information before placing your order.
