TheBigVitShop - Trading Terms and Conditions.
Targets & Agreement.
At TheBigVitShop, (BigVits), we target standards of Customer Service we would wish to receive from others, but rarely do so. Below we specify our Trading Terms and Conditions. If for any reason you do not agree with any of these conditions, but still wish to purchase goods, you first must receive from BigVits Ltd an original, signed document stating any agreed variation. In the absence of such variation, these terms & conditions prevail and your agreement to them is confirmed by the act of placing an order.
Pricing & Payment.
All payments are required in £ (Pounds) Sterling. Accepted methods of payment are detailed at the checkout. These include MasterCard, Visa and Paypal. Other methods of payment may be made available in certain circumstances but must be agreed before purchase by contacting info@BigVits.co.uk Prices displayed on the BigVits website will be the prices charged while stocks last. BigVits reserve the right to change prices without notice.
Dispatch is targeted as the same day for all orders received before 2:30pm (98.6% achieved) or the next business day. BigVits dispatch operations normally work 6 days per week but do not work on Bank Holidays. In the unlikely event that BigVits will not be able to dispatch an order within 4 working days, if this ever becomes apparent, you will be immediately contacted by email and offered a full refund. All shipping is charged as per shipping weights shown in the cart and as displayed on individual item listings. See the section on 'Shipping & Delivery' for up-to-date information on weights, costs and shipping methods. Shipping prices are charged at the cost price of the Postal/Carrier service chosen plus VAT. Currently BigVits customers are not normally charged any contribution towards packaging or dispatch fees. Please Note: Many vitamin tubs will not easily fit through letter boxes and it is the responsibility of the customer to give a satisfactory delivery address where delivery can be accepted. All postal items are shipped with a Royal Mail Certificate of Proof of Posting.
Delivery Delay or Lost Items
BigVits are unable to guarantee the delivery time of Postal/Carrier services as this is out of their control. If there is any delay or problems with the delivery of your goods, BigVits will supply a copy of the "Certificate (proof) of Posting" but beyond that, BigVits are unable to accept any responsibility for delays or loss caused by the Royal Mail until the Royal Mail's "claims waiting time" has expired. For domestic UK post, this is currently 15 working days beyond dispatch date. That is 3 weeks after shipping before BigVits are able to make any claim against the Royal Mail on your behalf. For domestic orders, on your part, if your items have not been received within 7 days, please contact your local postal delivery depot to check that your postman has not forgotten to leave a "while you were out card" and then, if your order has still not arrived after 4 weeks, notify BigVits who will make a claim on your behalf and replace or refund your order as appropriate. Non arrival of your package must be notified to BigVits within 5 weeks after order date to be valid.
If you need to communicate with BigVits regarding your order, please always quote the invoice number given on your "Order Confirmation" or "Despatch Confirmation". This will help speed up the response to your email. BigVits try to respond to all emails by the following working day. If you have a SPAM security system, please list BigVits.co.uk as a contact or you may not receive despatch notifications.
Pricing and Contract
Price and availability is subject to change without notice. A contract will not exist between the customer and BigVits until an order is paid and goods availability is confirmed. Whether a purchase is completed or not, any dispute or claim arising from a transaction with BigVits will be limited to the total purchase price of the goods involved.
Return of goods.
BigVits operate a full no-quibble returns policy. However, because of the nature of the product, returns can only be accepted if the security seals are intact. Before returning any item, please contact info@BigVits.co.uk by email and you will be sent the relevant returns address and authorization number. The goods must be returned to the address given on issue of the returns authorization number. When returned items are received in good condition, a refund will be issued for the full price of the item but excluding shipping, admin and restocking costs of up to 10%. It is recommended that items are very well packed and should sent by recorded delivery as refunds cannot be made until goods are received in good condition. Returns can only be accepted within 30 days of the date of the original order and extension on this timescale cannot be granted. Goods which are ordered specially from the manufacturers at the request of the customer and promotion items sold as "clearance lines" or "scratch and dent" etc., cannot be returned and orders from customers are accepted on that condition. These conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
