Goods and Services
All brochures, specifications, drawings, catalogues shapes, descriptions and illustrations, application guides and information, price lists and other advertising matter are intended only to present a general idea of the Goods and Services described in them and the images of the Goods on the website or otherwise are for illustrative purposes only. Technical specifications are approximations unless specifically stated otherwise.
We reserve the right to deliver Goods of a modified design provided that any difference does not make the Goods unsuitable for any purpose you have made known to us.
The Goods will conform in all material respects to any sample provided to and accepted by us. The Goods and Services will conform in all material respects with any specification provided to and accepted by us. We reserve the right to amend any design or specification without prior notification if it does not adversely affect the performance of the Goods and Services.
We cannot guarantee that the appearance and/or colours of Goods (including without limitation paint) shown on the website or otherwise exactly reproduces the appearance and/or colours of the physical Goods themselves. Natural products may show some colour variations against your vehicle colour (whereby such colour may have been distorted due to weather conditions). MMS agrees to provide a specifically mixed paint product, you agree to check the accuracy and suitability of such product and use in accordance with any manufacturer’s guidance and instructions provided.
All Goods supplied by us are subject to availability. We reserve the right in the event that; we cannot supply you with the Goods that you have ordered, to supply you with substitute goods of equivalent or matching quality.
If the Goods are manufactured in accordance with any design or specification provided or made by you, you will compensate us in full on demand for all claims, expenses and liabilities of any nature in connection with them, including any claim, whether actual or alleged, that the design or specification infringes the rights of any third party.
You will not remove, alter, deface, obfuscate or tamper with any of the trademarks, names or numbers affixed to or marked on the Goods nor allow anyone else to do so.
In accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 you have the right to cancel the Contract (subject to Exclusions Criteria, see below) for any item bought on the website for a full refund within 14 days without giving any reason. The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you have acquired. This condition will also be applicable in the instance a third party has received the goods or where a courier has indicated the goods have been received and are in physical possession.
To exercise the right to cancel, you can contact us to inform your decision to cancel your order stating giving the relevant information. You can visit the Contact Us page for information on how to get in touch.
If you cancel the Contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, excluding the costs of delivery. Goods must be in the exact condition as initially received and must be in a state where the value has not been depreciated. We are entitled to deduct an amount from the refund to reflect any loss in value of the goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling of the goods by you.
You may also cancel an order for Services within 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the Services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the Services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
Nothing in this clause affects your statutory rights.
We will make the reimbursement to you without undue delay and within 14 days after we have received the Goods back or within 14 days of notifying us you have cancelled the Contract.
We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the Goods back.
If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the Goods from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
The right to cancel does not apply to the following kind of contracts:
- Contracts for the supply of Goods that are made to the Consumer’s specifications or are clearly personalised.
- Contracts for the supply of Goods which are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly.
- Contracts for the supply of sealed Goods which are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons and were unsealed after delivery.
- Contracts for the supply of a newspaper, periodical or magazine except for subscription contracts for the supply of such publications.
- Contracts for the supply of Goods which are deemed to be ‘Electrical Goods’ which have been opened from a sealed bag, or the warranty seal has been broken, unless there is a fault in which case, we will follow the Warranty procedures for the respective manufacturer.

You have the right to demand a full refund.
Prices may vary from the website to in-store.
Payment of Goods and Services will be made in full to us without deductions or set-off in cash/guaranteed cheque/credit or debit card when an order is placed.
Payments by credit or debit card will only be accepted where the card holder is present in person at our premises or where the card in question has been verified on our Website.
Without prejudice to any other rights that we may have (including the right to suspend any further deliveries or installation), if you fail to pay the invoice price by the due date to us or to any of our Group of Companies we may charge you interest on any overdue amount from the date of which payment was due to that on which it is made (whether before or after judgment) on a daily basis in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 and reimburse to us all costs and expenses (including legal costs) incurred in the collection of any overdue amount.
If you only make a part payment towards any invoice or for any debts owed to us or our Group of Companies then we are required to allocate your payment in equal proportions to the amounts outstanding and you cannot choose how the payment is allocated. We may at our sole discretion apply the money that you have paid against invoices raised or debts due to us in the order in which they occurred (being against the oldest debt first).
All cheques provided to us by customers who do not hold a credit account with us are approved for acceptance by our appointed agents. In the event of a cheque not clearing by our bank and being represented or returned to the drawer, our appointed agents shall contact you and will charge a fee of a minimum of £75 for each cheque so returned to cover bank charges and administration costs. Our agents may apply additional charges and/or vary their charges from time to time and any charges applied will have to be paid by you. For all cheques provided to us by customers with credit accounts, which when cashed by us, are not cleared by our bank and are being represented or returned to the drawer, we shall charge £25 for each cheque so returned to cover our bank and administration charges. To avoid the charges, we advise that you have the enough and cleared funds in your account when making any payment to us.
The Goods are delivered to you when we make them available to you at a delivery point agreed by us.
You have legal rights if we deliver any of the Goods ordered late. If we miss the delivery deadline for any Goods then you may treat the Contract as at an end straight away if any of the following apply:
we have refused to deliver the Goods;
delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
If you do not wish to treat the Contract as at an end straight away, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can treat the Contract as at an end if we do not meet the new deadline.
If you do choose to treat the Contract as at an end for late delivery under clause 10.2, you can cancel your order for any of the Goods or reject Goods that have been delivered. If you wish, you can reject or cancel the order for some of those Goods (not all of them), unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. After that we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Goods and their delivery. If the Goods have been delivered to you, you must either return them in person to where you bought them, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please call customer services on 01908 366 899 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange collection.
Time of delivery will not be of the essence and any delivery date is an estimate only. We will use all reasonable endeavours to avoid late deliveries.
The quantity of any consignment of Goods as recorded by us upon despatch from our place of business will be conclusive evidence of the quantity received by you on delivery unless you can provide conclusive evidence proving the contrary.
Our liability for non-delivery of the Goods will be limited to, at our discretion, replacing the Goods within a reasonable time, issuing a credit note at the pro rata Contract rate against any invoice raised for such Goods or a refund of the purchase price paid.
Any claim that any Goods have been delivered damaged or do not materially comply with their description will be notified by you to us and (where appropriate, to the carrier) within 7 days of their delivery. Provided that you return such Goods to us, we will at our sole discretion replace such Goods, issue you with a credit note for the price of such Goods or refund the price paid for such Goods.
Any claim that any Goods have not been delivered to you by us or our appointed carriers where we claim we have delivered the same to you, or left the Goods in a safe place or delivered the Goods to your neighbour and/or our appointed carriers have obtained a signature for the delivery of the Goods (from any of the above (where applicable), such claim must be notified by you to us within 7 days of their expected delivery. We shall then liaise with our carrier and/or our driver and we may require copies of two forms of personal identification documents from you (such as passport, driving licence,
bank card etc.) or any third party. Once we have reviewed all documentary evidence and statements from the relevant drivers we shall then come back to you within a reasonable timescale of our decision (to replace such Goods, issue you with a credit note for the price of such Goods, refund the price paid for such Goods or to not provide any of the aforementioned) which shall be final and binding. The provisions of this clause 10.9 set out your sole remedy in such circumstances.
If you fail to take delivery of the Goods or accept performance of the Services or any part thereof at the time agreed for delivery, then we will be entitled to cancel or suspend such delivery and all other outstanding deliveries and to charge you for the reasonable loss suffered.
Storage and Disposal
If you fail to take delivery of the Goods when they are ready for delivery we may, at our option, either store them ourselves or have them stored by third parties on such terms as we may in our own discretion think fit. In any event the cost of storage will be borne by you.
Title and Risk
Risk in the Goods passes when they are delivered to you.
We will transfer only such title or rights in respect of the Goods as we have and if the Goods are purchased from a third party will transfer only such title or rights as that party had and has transferred to us.
Notwithstanding the above clause, passing of title in the Goods will remain with us and will not pass to you until the amount due under the invoice for them or any other outstanding invoice from us to you including any invoice outstanding from our Group of Companies to you (including interest and costs) has been paid in full.
If Goods become faulty during the period of the Warranty for reasons unconnected with your acts, omissions or misuse of the Goods or are qualifying Goods, the following two options may be applicable to you:
notify us in writing and/or by completing a warranty claim form (including a description of the fault) and return such Goods to us. Such Goods shall be returned to the manufacturer for review and testing. Based on the manufacturers’ opinion, we will repair, (or at our sole option) replace such Goods with the same or superior Goods, without charge or not provide any of the aforementioned. The manufacturer’s opinion shall be final, and binding and we shall have no further liability to you. If Goods become faulty after expiry of the Warranty, and you request that we replace or repair such Goods, then we shall charge our then standard list price for such repair or replacement; or
certain Goods qualify for our ‘No Quibble’ exchange policy (details of which Goods qualify can be found in-store). Should the Goods you purchased qualify and comply with our Warranty Conditions, they can be exchanged for an immediate replacement of the same Goods purchased (for the avoidance of doubt, no other goods can be exchanged for the Goods purchased and only a like for like exchange will be accepted) and we shall waive our right to have the Goods previously purchased by you and returned for exchange, to be tested. You must note that should you opt for the No Quibble exchange, we will return the Goods purchased to the manufacturer and/or have them destroyed, and you will have no rights to make any further claims (such as those listed within clause 21.4) in relation to the Goods returned. You will need to complete a warranty claims form (which will be provided in-store) confirming your acceptance to our ‘No Quibble’ exchange policy.
We will be afforded reasonable opportunity and facilities to investigate any claims made under the Warranty and you will if so, requested in writing by us promptly return any Goods the subject of any claim and any packing materials securely packed, and carriage paid to us for examination.
We will have no liability with regard to any claim in respect of which you have not complied with the claims procedures in the Warranty Conditions.
The warranty is given by us subject to us having no liability in respect of any defect arising from wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, tampering of the Goods, incorrect fitting of the Goods by you and/or a third party, abnormal working conditions, failure to follow our and/or the Goods’ manufacturers’ instructions (whether oral or in writing), misuse or alteration or repair of the Goods without our approval.
If you are exercising your right to change your mind with regards to purchased Goods or Services;
We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the Goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If we refund you the price paid before, we can inspect the Goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost or free but you choose to have the Goods delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are exercising your right to change your mind then;
If the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the Goods back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the Goods back to us.
In all other cases, your refund will be made within;
14 days of date of purchase of the Goods and proof of purchase is supplied; and
for any other reason (outside the terms of Clause 5), we will examine the returned Goods and will either notify you in-store (if the Goods were bought from one of our branches and returned to our branch only), in writing or via e-mail within a reasonable time of the refund (if any at all) to which you are entitled. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible thereafter. For any entitlement of a refund to be due to you, the returned Goods must be in the same condition in which you received them with the original packaging and the product documentation. The Goods must not have been used (such as any smell of without limitation fuel, toxins or rubber shall invalidate any refund due to you) and, where applicable, must not have been removed from the sealed clear packaging. This includes electrical items, which are supplied in sealed clear packaging. Goods returned to us because they fail to comply with the Warranty will be refunded in accordance with the provisions of the Warranty Conditions.
"Special Order" means any Goods that are not held in stock by us (a non-stock item) and are therefore ordered and/or manufactured specifically as per your request. Payment in full is required for such Special Orders at the time the Special Order is placed with us. Special Orders that are manufactured specifically as per your request are non-refundable except at our sole discretion. In such instance only, we reserve the right to apply a restocking fee of 25% of the price of the Special Order, which shall be deducted from any refund due to you.”
We will normally refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
Where service exchange units are purchased, you will be invoiced with a sum referred to as a “surcharge” which is in respect of the old unit that you may return to us. If the old unit is returned within 7 days from the delivery date a credit note will be issued by us in respect of the “surcharge” provided that the old unit is identical to the unit purchased and in a condition in our sole discretion that enables it to be re-manufactured.
