4. Delivery, Title and Risk
MJM shall use reasonable endeavours to dispatch goods by the date agreed with the customer, but does not accept liability for failure to deliver within the stated time where this is caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control, such as delays caused by delivery companies or manufacturer lead times. If a delay is likely, we shall contact the customer and advise of the delay.
If MJM is unable to deliver the goods within 30 days of the agreed delivery date, then Customer will, as its sole remedy, be entitled to cancel the order and require any monies paid to MJM in respect of that order to be refunded. In order to cancel, the Customer must send written notice of cancellation to MJM after the above date but before delivery of the goods or notification from MJM that the goods are ready for delivery.
MJM does not accept liability for shortages or damage to deliveries unless the Customer notifies MJM of the shortage or damage in writing within 48 hours of receipt of the delivery.
Business Customers are required to be able to accept the goods when they are ready for delivery within Normal Working Hours.
Delivery is deemed to take place when the goods are delivered to the Customer's nominated address, whereupon the risks of loss, breakage and all damage and all other risks shall pass to the Customer.
Title of the goods does not pass to the Customer until payment is received in full by MJM. Risk in the goods shall pass to the buyer on delivery. The company shall be entitled to recover from the Buyer any goods for which payment has not been received when due, and enter upon the premises of the Buyer where goods are situated or are reasonably thought to be situated to repossess such goods. Where the buyer has purported to re-sell the goods before the property in them has passed to him, the proceeds of such purport re-sale shall be held in trust for the Company in the Name of the Company in a Bank account separate from all other monies of the Buyer.
If the Customer cannot accept delivery, MJM may at its option: (a) store and insure the goods at the Customer's expense and risk or (b) sell the goods at the best price reasonably obtainable and (after deducting reasonable storage insurance and selling costs) pay to the Customer any excess over the sale price or charge the Customer for any shortfall or (c) re-arrange delivery provided that MJM may charge the Customer for the additional delivery costs incurred.
The Customer may request a Proof of Delivery, provided that this request is made in writing within 7 days of the date of delivery and MJM shall use reasonable endeavours to provide such proof. Thereafter, delivery shall be deemed to have been successfully completed.
Upon delivery of the goods, the Customer will be asked to sign a Proof of Delivery to acknowledge safe receipt. It is the responsibility of the Customer to ensure that the number of packages delivered corresponds with the number stated on the delivery note. Where a discrepancy occurs or where there is evident damage to the packaging, this should be noted on the Proof of Delivery. MJM shall not be liable for discrepancies or damage evident on delivery where the Customer accepts delivery and signs the Proof of Delivery without amendment
Payment Terms: in advance into MJM’s Business Account.

6. Product Specifications
MJM makes every effort to supply the goods as advertised but reserves the right to supply the goods subject to minor variations in actual dimensions and specifications where these are changed by the manufacturer.
If MJM cannot supply the goods ordered by the Customer, MJM reserves the right to offer goods of equal or superior quality at no extra cost. In such a case, if the Customer does not wish to accept the alternative goods offered, he or she may cancel the order and require the refund of any money paid to MJM in respect of that order, including carriage charges. This shall be the sole remedy of the Customer in these circumstances.
7. Trade Names and Trade Marks
Trade names and marks (other than MJM's) are not always indications of the actual manufacturer of a particular product and may rather be indicative of general use systems and machines associated with such products.
In the case of component purchases, Customers requiring a particular brand of product should, before placing an order, check with MJM the identity of the manufacturer of component it is proposed to purchase.
8. Warranties and Returns

Other than the express provisions set out in these terms and conditions, all other terms and the implied terms or warranties relating to the supply of goods are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. Goods are not tested or sold as being fit for any particular application or for use under specific conditions, unless expressly agreed in writing.

In particular, we cannot be held responsible for any fault or damage not caused by MJM services' engineers or its contracted agents. In the event of a claim arising relating to the level of skill and judgment applied in the course of providing Services, MJM reserves at its sole discretion the right to appoint an independent expert in the field to appraise the work carried out in the execution of the Service(s). Additionally, MJM cannot be held responsible for equipment installed or configured when the equipment has subsequently been altered or configured by persons other than MJM. Except as set out here, all other express or implied terms or warranties relating to the Services are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Any defacement of the manufacturer's packaging or damage caused by inadequate packaging may result in the rejection of the return or an additional restocking fee, at MJM's sole discretion.
MJM cannot accept liability for packages damaged during transit. It is the Customer's responsibility to wrap the product adequately to prevent damage.
Proof of postage is not proof of delivery and you are therefore strongly advised to send your package by recorded delivery, registered post or courier, and to insure the goods for their full value.
On receipt of the returned product, we will test it to identify the fault you have notified to us.
If following the testing process, the product is found to be in good working order without defect, we will return the product to you, and the carriage costs of this return will be your responsibility. Please note that if you have, in the meantime, required us to provide you with a replacement product before completion of the testing process, you will have to pay for this product also.

Customers who wish to make a warranty claim must comply with the manufacturer's instructions and warranty procedure. In order to resolve your problem as quickly as possible, we may refer you to the product manufacturer who will deal directly with the return. In these instances, we will provide you with the contact information for the relevant manufacturer. If you are a consumer, this does not affect your statutory rights.
This warranty shall not apply if the goods have been worked upon, altered or damaged in any way by the Customer or its employees or agents, or to goods not used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.

Clearance Bargains, by their very nature, have limited availability. Upon receipt of an order for Clearance Bargains, MJM will check stock availability. Until stock availability is confirmed to the customer, a contract for sale will not be created and no payment will be debited from the customer or placed on their account.
13. Errors and Omissions
MJM makes every effort to ensure that all prices and descriptions quoted in its catalogue and on its website are correct and accurate. However, the frenetic tempo of e-commerce makes it inevitable that mistakes will occasionally occur. In the case of a manifest error or omission, MJM will be entitled to rescind the contract, notwithstanding that it has already accepted the Customer's order and/or received payment from the Customer. MJM's liability in that event will be limited to the return of any money the Customer has paid in respect of the order. In the case of a manifest error in relation to price, the Customer will be entitled to purchase the goods by paying the difference between the quoted price and the correct price, as confirmed in writing by MJM after the manifest error has been discovered.
A 'manifest error', as the term is used in sub-paragraph (1) above, means, in relation to an incorrect price, a price quoted in error by MJM which is more than 10% less than the price that would have been quoted had the mistake not been made.
