All orders placed through the Website will be subject to our acceptance of the order.
When you submit an order to us on the Website, you will receive an email from us acknowledging your order ("Order Confirmed Email"). You should check this email for accuracy and let us know immediately if there are any errors. Please note that the Order Confirmed Email does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy goods. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we reserve the right to decline the acceptance of any order, or cancel an order, in full or in part, for any reason at our absolute discretion. This applies up to the point we dispatch your order.
A Coombs Pet Centre Ltd only accepts the order and agrees the contract to supply at the point of order dispatch (physical handover of the goods to the carrier.) We will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms the goods have been dispatched to you (the "A Shipment is on the way").
Where you have used a promotional code to obtain a discount off the price of your order, acceptance of this order is subject to our verifying that the code has been issued to you personally and that you have complied with all the terms of the offer and qualify for the promotional code. In the event that the code has not been issued to you for your personal use, or you do not qualify for the promotion, or your use of the code is in breach of these Terms and Conditions and/or any express conditions applicable to the code, the price of the order will be adjusted notwithstanding any email confirmation which you receive. Refunds for goods purchased under a promotional offer will be based on the terms of the promotional price. Your statutory rights are not affected.
Orders will be processed and dispatched as soon as possible using either DPD or by our own local service. All orders and payments will be screened for evidence of fraudulent activity. In some instances, this may cause a delay in the dispatch of your order. Orders will be dispatched once all of the items ordered are available. If there is a delay on a specific item, you may be contacted to establish whether you would prefer to split the order or wait for a single delivery. We endeavour to supply orders accurately, however the responsibility remains with the purchaser and user of all products to verify that the product is correct prior to use.
If your order arrives damaged please contact our team who will arrange a replacement or refund as preferred. Damages should be notified to us within 30 days of receipt. We may ask you for photographs of any damages prior to processing a claim. When you place an order, you may be asked for delivery instructions including a ‘leave safe’ preference. Our couriers will follow these instructions wherever possible.
Payment will be taken at the time of requesting the order (not at the point of dispatch). All items are offered for sale subject to availability. We aim to dispatch all orders within 3 days of receiving payment.
Lost in transit - If an order is dispatched with a courier it will be fully tracked and you should contact us as soon as you believe it may have gone missing in transit.
For all orders, regardless of delivery method, you must report missing items to us within 30 days of the date of dispatch.
Incorrect Address - you are responsible for entering your full postal address correctly, and selecting it on each order. A. Coombs takes no responsibility for missing items that have been sent to an incorrect, old or inaccurate address.
If delivery is likely to be subject to undue delay, we will contact you by email or phone. You will have the option of a full refund in this case, or of waiting for availability (this might be due to a manufacturer or other reason beyond our control). Delivery to some addresses may carry a higher delivery charge for certain items. This will be displayed prior to making payment. Other conditions do apply regarding deliveries. By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you are also agreeing to what is stated on our delivery information page.
