CONSUMER - DEFINITION
An individual acting for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside that individual’s trade, business, craft or profession.
The placing of an order shall include acceptance of the following terms and conditions. Only our terms shall apply and shall not be deemed as forming part of any other contract; no terms, conditions or reservations stipulated by the buyer. No variations to any of these conditions will apply unless expressly consented to by GateMotors in writing.
Once we have checked the price and availability of the goods you will receive confirmation of that order via email. Until your order is received, we have the right to decline the supply of goods - for example, we may not be able to get hold of the model you need although it is showing on our website. If this happens, we will refund you in full. Of course, we will do our utmost to make sure this doesn’t happen, but we do reserve the right not to accept an order.
We rely on computers & humans to manage our stock. Occasionally one or the other will get it wrong. If our stock count is wrong and effects your order, we will tell you as soon as we know, and we will try to sort it out for you.
Prices on our website are believed to be correct but may vary without notice. Goods will be invoiced at the price ruling at the date of despatch and we reserve the right to amend any errors or omissions. Value Added Tax (at the current standard rate of 20%) where applicable, will be added at the time of invoicing.
Details of our price match policy can be found here.
Accepted payment methods are:
Goods paid for by credit card, debit card or PayPal will only be delivered to the registered billing address - unfortunately there are no exceptions to this rule.
Orders paid for by bank transfers, cash or cheque can be delivered to an alternate delivery address once the funds have been verified (please note cheques can take up to 8 working days to clear).
Every effort is made to meet quoted delivery times and we are proud of our delivery accuracy. However, we cannot guarantee all deliveries will be made as stated. Occasionally something happens out of our control, like adverse weather or road closures which can affect delivery of your order. If this happens please contact us within 24 hours of the planned delivery date and we will make alternative arrangements.
If the goods are damaged in transit you must contact us within 24 hours of the date of delivery; we then require a formal claim in writing within 7 days of the date of delivery.
Our deliveries are made with reputed couriers and a signature is always required. If there is nobody available to receive your delivery at your stated delivery address, the courier company will usually leave a card for you to organise collection from your local depot or arrange delivery for another day.
Delivery Failure - If initial delivery is not accepted, nor a collection from the courier depot or re-arranged delivery made the goods will be returned to our premises. If this happens and you request a new delivery an additional delivery charge will be incurred.
For deliveries outside the EU it is possible for you to arrange your own courier service; however, if you choose to use your own courier then VAT will be charged (as there is no proof of export on our behalf). You will be able to claim back your VAT once you provide HMRC with your proof of export.
All goods sold on our website (https://www.gatemotors.co.uk/) come with a limited warranty.
The warranty is on a 'return to base' basis. This means goods must be returned to us for testing before any further action can be taken.
Gate Motors warrants to you that the supplied goods will be free from defects in workmanship and materials under normal use for a period of 1 year from the date the goods were invoiced.
In some cases, the warranty period may be extended to 2 or 3 years by the manufacturer. This will require the product/s to be returned to the manufacturer’s head office or service address. If an item has an extended warranty period it will be stated on its product page on this website.
If a defect arises and a valid claim is received by GateMotors within the warranty period, the goods should be returned as per instructions below. Shipping costs will be paid by the customer in the first instance. If the goods are deemed faulty then shipping costs will be reimbursed upon proof of purchase.
Any time after the warranty period we are entitled to charge you for any reasonable shipping and handling costs made in connection with the repair or replacement of the goods.
Gate Motors will not be liable for costs incurred relating to removal or re-installation of goods found to have a manufacturing defect.
All goods returned to us for repair or warranty claim will be inspected and repaired/replaced as necessary.
Procedure for returning goods for warranty repair:
You will be required to prove that you purchased the items directly from us. Please have you order number to hand so that we can trace your transaction.
The Limited Warranty does not apply when:
This Limited Warranty does not affect any legal rights under the national legislation governing the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
See our Returns & Cancellation section below for instructions on arranging a return.
RETURNS & CANCELLATIONS
Consumers have a statutory right (under the Consumer Rights Act 2015) to return an item without giving a reason. The only exception to this, is against items which have been modified or ordered direct from the manufacturer (special order). Under these circumstances you waive the right to return the item for a full refund.
Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 your cancellation notice must be received by us in a written/printable form within 14 days of delivery of the goods. Once the cancellation notice has been received you then have a further 14 days to return the goods. Please note, you will have to pay for the return of goods.
Goods returned for credit will only be accepted if they are in their original boxes, undamaged and complete with all instructions/documentation.
Before returning goods (for any reason) a Sales Return Number (SRN) should be obtained from a member of our customer care team (contact: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Failure to obtain a SRN will result in the goods being turned away from our Goods-In and returned to the invoice address as undeliverable.
If you decide to cancel your order you must return the goods to us at your own expense. You must ensure that the goods are packaged sufficiently to protect against damage.
If you fail to take reasonable care of the goods before they are returned to us, and this results in damage, you will be charged for the reduction in value.
If the items have been handled beyond what is necessary to determine whether the product is in working order or as described, we may recover the value lost from the reimbursement we offer you.
This cancellation policy does not affect your legal rights.

In the event of default by the Buyer responsibility for payment in full of all goods and services ordered by the Buyer together with costs and interest is that of the Buyers Directors either individually or collectively. It is a condition of trading that such Directors will indemnify GateMotors for all costs and losses due howsoever caused.
