Terms & Conditions of Sale
These Terms govern the sale Apollo Business Supplies Ltd to you of Products for which you place an order that is accepted by us. Note that our catalogues and websites are intended for business users only, and we reserve the right to refuse service and cancel orders to non-business customers. No other terms and conditions shall apply. Your acceptance of the Products shall be deemed to constitute acceptance of these Terms.
You can order anytime at www.apollo-bs.co.uk or by phone on 023 8202 1260. Our lines are open Monday to Thursday 7.30am to 5.30pm and Friday 7.30am to 5.00pm. Although we aim to process all orders same day, if you order after 5.00pm or at the weekend please assume that delivery will be as if your order had been placed the next working day.
By placing an order you warrant that you are a business user. All orders placed by you are subject to acceptance by Apollo Business Supplies Ltd. Apollo reserves the right to revise prices, limit quantities, correct errors in its catalogue and refuse orders at its discretion including.
If an error is discovered in the price of the goods that you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible. In the event that you order an item and the price published on the site is incorrect for any reason, we will contact you upon discovery of the error to let you know the correct price and ask you whether you still wish us to fulfil your order at this price. We shall be under no obligation to fulfil an order for a product which was advertised at an incorrect price. Should we have fulfilled the order before discovering the error, we reserve the right to take back the goods and refund you the purchase price or charge you the correct amount.
Except as may otherwise be permitted by applicable law, you may not cancel an order which Apollo Business Supplies Ltd has accepted without the agreement in writing of Apollo, which requirement may be waived by Apollo from time to time in its sole discretion. Prices are exclusive of VAT at 20% (subject to government alterations). Ownership and title remains with Apollo Business Supplies Ltd until full payment for products has been received.
Because we know how important it is to get the supplies you need, we aim (but do not guarantee) to deliver all orders the next working day, although certain items such as furniture may take longer (see below). Orders placed Monday to Thursday will be delivered the next working day. Orders received on Friday will be delivered the following Monday and orders placed at the weekend will be delivered the following Tuesday. Customers will be advised at time of order if this is the case. Apollo cannot be held responsible for any consequential loss due to late or non-delivery.
Note that oversized or bulky items may require additional delivery time and some products are delivered to customers directly by the manufacturer and some manufacturers are unable to deliver outside of the UK mainland; Apollo shall endeavour to inform you of extended delivery times at the time you place your order. In any case, Apollo shall not be liable for any cost or damage caused by late or non-delivery of the Products. Any delay in delivery of the Products shall not give you a right to reject the Products or cancel your order. Apollo reserves the right to deliver the Products in instalments.
Delivery times are between 8.00 am and 5.00 pm. We cannot specify an exact time when we will deliver. The delivery driver needs to obtain a signature for all parcels. If you are unavailable to accept delivery, your order may be left with a neighbour if they are willing to sign for it.
Delivery to the UK mainland is free, unless stated at time of order. Please note we cannot deliver to PO Boxes or BFPO addresses.
Timescales for furniture deliveries are usually between 3 and 5 working days, although certain ranges may take up to 3 weeks. Unfortunately we are unable to deliver and assemble furniture outside of the UK mainland. Please note that delivery days quoted are working days, and for some areas of Northern Scotland, the Scottish Highlands and the South-West delivery could take longer. Also additional carriage costs may apply to these areas. For further information on carriage costs or delivery timescales, please contact Customer Services on 023 8202 1260. Information regarding assembly services can be found on individual furniture ranges.
Unless you are an Apollo Business Supplies Credit Account Holder, you must pay for the Products at the time you place your order. If you are an account holder, please be aware that under the terms of the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998, we are entitled to levy interest and a late payment compensation fee on overdue debts. Credit accounts are not available for first time orders. If paying by credit card on an order and you require the goods to be delivered to an alternate address other than that which your credit card is registered to, we may need to verify your details before we can process your order. Apollo reserves the right, by giving you notice at the time you place your order, to increase the price of the Products to reflect any increase in the cost to Apollo which is due to any factor beyond its control.
You may return items (excluding special order items, furniture and printed stationery) within a 21 day period of the date the order was placed for a full credit, although depending on the product, up to a 25% handling charge may apply. At our discretion, we may accept the return of unwanted items after the 21 day threshold, for a partial value credit.
All unwanted goods for return must be unused, complete, and in as new condition and in their original and unmarked packaging (not resealed with brown tape). Once the goods have been received back into our warehouse and their condition checked, you will receive your credit, either in the form of a credit note or direct to your credit card, if that was how you purchased the goods originally. If they are not in a suitable condition, we reserve the right to refuse a credit.
Products such as laptops, selected business machines, technology products and software are excluded from our standard returns policy. Food and drink, made-to-order and personalised items are also non-returnable at any time.
6. Damaged, Missing or Faulty Items
If any items are damaged or missing from your order, please contact us within 24 hours of your delivery on 023 8202 1260. We will then investigate your claim and if acceptable, either directly replace the item or issue a credit.
All products purchased through Apollo Business Supplies Ltd benefit from the manufacturers’ warranty or guarantee, if any. Legally, this clause only applies to business customers.
Nothing in these Terms shall exclude or limit Apollo’s liability for fraud or for death or personal injury caused by its negligence or any other liability to the extent that the same may not be excluded or limited as a matter of law. Without prejudice to the previous sentence, Apollo shall not be liable for any loss of income or profits or for any indirect or consequential loss or damage of any kind howsoever arising and whether caused by the negligence of Apollo, its breach or non-performance or any of its obligations under these Terms or otherwise. These Terms set out the full extent of Apollo’s obligations and liabilities in respect of the sale of the Products. In particular there are no conditions, warranties or other terms, expressed or implied, as to satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular purpose or of any other kind whatsoever, that are binding on Apollo except as specifically stated in these Terms. Any condition, warranty or other term concerning the sale of the Products, which might otherwise be implied into or incorporated within these Terms, whether by statute, common law or otherwise, is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. If you are a consumer the exclusion of terms implied by law will not apply to you.
Apollo Business Supplies Ltd shall not be liable to you for any loss or damage which you might suffer arising from Apollo’s delay in fulfilling or failure to fulfil any of its obligations under these Terms to the extent that such delay or failure is caused by any circumstance beyond Apollo’s reasonable control. If due to such circumstances or events Apollo has insufficient stocks to meet all its orders, Apollo may apportion available stocks between its customers at its sole discretion. These Terms and any terms appearing on any order form to which these Terms apply constitute the entire agreement between you and Apollo Business Supplies Ltd relating to the Products. The failure of Apollo or you to enforce any of these Terms does not constitute a waiver of that term and shall in no way affect the right later to enforce the term. The invalidity or unenforceability of any clause of these Terms shall not adversely affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions. No amendment, variation or addition to these Terms shall be binding unless agreed to in writing by an authorised representative of Apollo Business Supplies Ltd. Apollo may transfer any contract with you concluded on these Terms or any of its rights or obligations under any such contract. These Terms will be construed in accordance with the laws of England and any disputes shall be settled by the English courts.
