Please carefully read the following Terms and Conditions.

 

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions affects your statutory rights.


We reserve the right to change the contents of this Website, including these Terms and Conditions at any time without notice by posting these changes on the Website. Use of the Website after a change has been posted will signify the users acceptance of the modified Terms and Conditions.


Pricing
The majority of orders received are made to order as we stock plain items and embroider or print the logo(s) as required.

Prices shown on the website are exclusive of VAT and delivery charge. At checkout, the VAT is automatically added, along with the delivery cost, so you will be shown the inclusive prices before making payment.

The placing of Workwear Essentials products on the Website is an invitation to accept offers for Workwear Essentials products and is not an offer to sell at the listed price nor is it binding on us. We are under no obligation to accept your order (whether or not the order has been confirmed and the credit card been charged).

In the unlikely event a Workwear Essentials product is listed at an incorrect price, we will notify you of the correct price and give you the choice of either purchasing the product(s) at the corrected price, or cancelling your order. If you confirm you want the product at the corrected price we will deliver the product to you. If payment has been charged for the purchase and you cancel the order we will issue a refund.

Customers with an invoice credit acount with Workwear Essentials, the following applies:

The purchase orders we place on the Company are divisible. Each delivery made thereunder:

  • shall be deemed to arise from a separate contract, and
  • shall be invoiced separately and any invoice for a delivery shall be payable in full in accordance with the terms of payment provided for therein without reference to and notwithstanding any defect or default in the delivery of any other instalment or of any other instalment under any other contract.

Payments 

We accept payment by Credit Card, Charge Card, or Debit Card. No order will be processed until we receive confirmation of payment.

Your Payment Card is debited at the time of placing your Workwear Essentials order.
We use Sage Pay and as such all transaction information passed between our website is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and any messages sent to our servers from our payment service provider are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. You can be completely assured that nothing we pass to our payment service provider can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.

Delivery

We aim to deliver Workwear Essentials orders within 10 to 15 working days(excluding bank holidays) of you placing your Workwear Essentials order. We will always attempt to complete your order as soon as possible, so as a result some orders may arrive earlier (particularly any plain non-embroidered or non-printed items).

If we send out the goods by Royal Mail they will attempt one delivery and leave you a card with their contact details, so can contact them and arrange a redelivery, or to collect it from your local Royal Mail depot.

Items supplied by Workwear Essentials are subject to availability of stock. If you are ordering more than one item, your order may be sent to you in instalments if some items are out of stock.

Workwear Essentials will inform you as soon as possible if we are unable to deliver your items within 21 days of your order. You may agree an alternative delivery period or you may cancel the order. In no event shall we be liable for any damages or penalty for any delay in delivery.

Your right to cancel 

If you have submitted your Workwear Essentials order and received your confirmation email, you can still cancel your order provided that it has not entered production and embroidery/printing started. If you do wish to cancel, please reply to the order confirmation email and mark it ‘ORDER CANCELATION’ in the subject line. Please ensure you supply your name, invoice address post code, product ordered and order number on the email.
