2. Dispatch and delivery
We make buying goods as convenient as possible as we deliver your order to your doorstep. Online orders can be shipped to anywhere in the UK, except for Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man. Delivery is free (only within the UK mainland). Shipment to Northern Ireland and UK islands will incur additional transportation cost of £ 4.00 per piece. For deliveries outside the UK, please check our Spanish, Belgian, Dutch, French, German, Austrian, Italian, Czech, Slovak, Polish, Turkish or American sites. The tyres can be delivered directly to your home address or to an alternative address but in this case, please specify the delivery address and notify the person authorized to receive the tyres on your behalf.
The normal delivery time for an existing order is up to 5 working days (please note that all delivery times are subject to stock availability). The statutory delivery time is 30 days. The above mentioned time of delivery is non-binding and can be extended in case of labor disputes, strikes and lockouts and unforeseen obstacles that are beyond the control of the seller, e.g. delivery delays of suppliers, transportation malfunctions, material or energy shortages, etc. Oponeo.co.uk will endeavour to deliver the goods within the time agreed but in no circumstances will it be liable for any loss or damage of any kind whatsoever caused directly by any delay in the delivery of the goods. You will be notified by e-mail if we do not have your tyres in stock. In case of receiving an incorrect number of items, the customer is obliged to contact the customer service. If by reason of force majeure the completion of the delivery of the goods is in our opinion rendered impracticable our company shall be at liberty to terminate the order by sending an e-mail to our customer and refunding the money previously paid by the customer. When the goods are sent out, you will receive notification by an e-mail. This e-mail will serve as your invoice. Oponeo.co.uk reserves the right to accept or refuse orders. The company also reserves the right to cancel any uncompleted order or to suspend the delivery. In this case the customer receives his or her previously paid money back.
Goods will be supplied based on any information provided by the customer. It is possible for you to change your delivery address once your order has been submitted online but up to the point when we send the package. However, such change can lengthen the delivery time. Unfortunately, once we send your order you will be unable to change delivery address. If there is no one to receive your parcel at indicated address at the time of delivery, a card will be left, informing you about a delivery attempt. There will be a contact telephone number on it for your local shipping company branch. If you telephone the number on the card you will be able to re-book a delivery day, or arrange picking the parcel up from the depot. Our order will not require your signature although someone needs to be at home to accept the delivery.
On receipt of the tyres the customer is deemed to have examined the goods carefully and the signing of the delivery note is conclusive evidence that the customer has examined the tyres and that the goods are free of defects which should be apparent on inspection and the goods are those which the customer had ordered. Orders, depending on a number of tyres and their size, can be sent in a few packages delivered separately. Therefore, before signing the documents of delivery, we ask our customers to check if the number of tyres received is the same as the one printed on the shipping letter.
The customer has right to refuse the delivery without giving a reason, if the goods are not needed anymore. As soon as the parcel is back in our warehouse, the money refund will be issued.
All prices are retail prices and include postage, packing and VAT within mainland UK. There is no difference according to number of the ordered tyres. All of them are in Pounds Sterlings (GBP). The purchase price of each product depends on the day of the order price list of Oponeo.co.uk.
