All Lay-By Agreements run for a 3-month period. Unless otherwise agreed at the point of deposit. If the customer fails to maintain the installment agreed by that period, the company reserves the right to cancel the agreement and place the item back out on display.
Payments may be made via credit card, cash and bank transfer upon request. Telephone payments can be made for all payments apart from the final payment which must be made in person. Upon receipt of each payment, an updated receipt of the amount paid and balance due will be issued.
Collection of goods
No goods can be removed from the store prior to all payments being received. No alterations for sizing, engraving etc. can be carried out prior to the final payment being received. Collection of the goods will be authorised with a copy of the original receipt. If this documentation has been lost please contact us as soon as possible for us to arrange a replacement, which will be issued with proof of identification.
All warranties will commence from the period in which the item is removed from our store, not from the lay-by start date.
