By placing an order on our website you are making an offer to purchase the goods we sell. Officeworx Ltd will send an order confirmation upon receipt of your order and payment. This is merely a confirmation that we have received your offer to purchase and is not acceptance of your order. At this point we may accept or refuse your offer to purchase and you will be notified either way.
If your order is accepted we will despatch the goods and you will be notified. If your order is refused we will contact you by telephone or e-mail to explain the reasons behind our decision and to arrange for a full refund to take place.
All prices displayed on our website are correct at time of being published and we reserve the right to amend them at any time. All prices displayed are exclusive of VAT at the current rate.
Payments cannot currently be made online unless you have an existing account. Please call us on 01242 584901 to set up an account for the website.
We deliver free of charge within most of mainland UK if your order value is £75 or more (excluding VAT). A small fee of £5.95 excluding VAT (£7.14 including VAT) will be charged for orders under £75 (excluding VAT).
Certain areas of the UK are outside our standard delivery area and delivery will be charged at a special rate. These areas include, but are not limited to, Northern Ireland, the Highlands of Scotland, the Hebrides, Shetland Islands, Orkney Islands, Channel Islands, Scilly Islands and Isle of Man. Please contact us for delivery charges to these areas before placing your order. We do not deliver outside the UK.
Delivery will be made to one specified address and a signature will be required. If no-one is available to sign for your goods, a card will be left with details on how to collect your goods and the goods will be returned to the carrier’s depot. The carrier may, at their discretion, make another delivery attempt but otherwise your goods will need to be collected from their depot and it will be your responsibility to do so.
When signing for goods it is your responsibility to check that the number of parcels, packages, boxes or envelopes agrees with the consignment details on the delivery note. If there are any discrepancies please notify us immediately. We cannot be held responsible for any missing parcels after you have signed to confirm receipt.
Delivery is usually made between 08.00 and 18.00 the next working day. We cannot specify an exact time of delivery and cannot be held responsible for any expenses incurred as a result of late or non-delivery of goods.
In the unlikely event that your goods are damaged please contact us as soon as possible and at the latest within three working days. Damaged or faulty goods will be replaced free of charge.
We are normally able to accept unwanted items for return provided you contact us within seven days of receipt of the order. Unwanted items must be returned to us at your expense to the address we provide. Goods must be returned in their full original packaging and must be in a saleable condition. We will be unable to credit or refund items that have been opened or have had manufacturers seals broken. Please do not write directly on any packaging that is part of the original product, all returns labels should be affixed to the exterior packaging. We regret that items of food and drink cannot be returned for health and safety reasons.
Please Note: No item can be returned for whatever reason unless a valid RMA number has been issued and is clearly displayed on the returns label. We also reserve the right to charge a restocking fee for items that have been correctly supplied by us.
Items that fail or break during the manufacturer’s warranty period will be replaced or repaired by following the manufacturer’s procedures. In this instance we will be happy to advise the best course of action.

Should you wish to cancel your order, you should contact us in writing by fax or e-mail clearly stating your name, address, invoice number and cancellation instructions. Once you have cancelled your order you have a legal ‘duty of care’ to take care of the goods.

You shall bear the cost of returning the goods to us and shall ensure that no markings are made to the outside packaging of the goods. They should be in a re-saleable condition when they arrive back at our warehouse. Easy peel tape should also be used for the address label.
If you wish for us to collect the goods, we shall arrange for a courier to collect once we are informed the goods are ready for collection and the cost of the courier service shall be deducted from the refund you are given. Should the above process be followed correctly then a refund will be processed.
