Terms Of Business
1. Our Contract
These Terms and Conditions govern the supply of goods sold by M&M Controls of Unit 17 & 18, Barnes Wallis Way, Roundhouse Court, Buckshaw Village, Chorley, Lancashire - UK PR7 7JN (“we” and “us”) to the customer named on the order form provided on the M&M Controls website (“you”). Together with the completed order form, these Terms and Conditions constitute the entire and only agreement between us in relation thereto. Orders are subject to our acceptance. Quotations are without engagement and are subject to goods and/or services being available when the order is received. The vendor reserves the right not to complete an order if the purchaser’s credit worthiness subsequently proves unsatisfactory.
We offer goods for sale through our website https://www.mandmcontrols.com/ , and our sales centre.
Prices advertised on the website are for online purchases only.
All our goods are offered to you on a payment with order basis and we accept most credit/debit cards. Our sales centres also accept cash and cheque. We will only accept your order if it is accompanied by payment in full including any carriage charges (if applicable). Terms of payment for credit account holders are promptly nett 30 (thirty) days from the end of the month of invoice unless otherwise agreed in writing by us and also always providing any account has been approved and opened. Payment of account on the due date is a vital condition of the contract. On placing an order (whether verbal or written) with M&M Controls with or without an official order number, the Purchaser or Purchaser’s employee will be deemed to have read and accepted the following statement:
“I am duly authorised by the applicant business to enter into this agreement on its behalf. We agree that payment of M&M Controls invoices will be made strictly in accordance with the credit terms stated thereon. We recognise that if payment of M&M Controls invoices is not made by the due date for payment, it will result in the matter being referred to the Credit Protection Association for recovery of the invoice debt. If so, we agree to indemnify M&M Controls against the costs that M&M Controls may incur in referring the matter to CPA to pursue the debt including CPA's current applicable fees for writing to us, any commission payable by you to CPA and all reasonable incidental costs of recovering the debt and interest (at 3% over the Base Rate in force on the date upon which the Invoice was raised) as applicable”
Additionally, we reserve the right to recharge preferential discounts given on overdue accounts together with any costs incurred in recovery of a debt, which has exceeded our payment terms. The property in the goods shall only pass to the purchaser when the whole of the price invoiced has been paid and until payment the purchaser shall hold the goods on trust for M&M Controls and the purchaser shall be responsible for all loss or damage howsoever caused. In the event of any sale or other disposition of the goods by the purchaser before the property in the goods shall have passed to the purchaser, the purchaser shall hold on trust for M&M Controls the whole of the proceeds of sale. If the purchaser defaults in the punctual payment of any sum owing to M&M Controls then M&M Controls reserves the right to the immediate return by the purchaser of all goods (or the documents of title thereto) in which the property has not passed to the purchaser. Furthermore the purchaser hereby authorises M & M Controls to recover the goods (or documents) and to enter any premises of the purchaser for that purpose. Any demand for or recovery of the goods (or documents) by M&M Controls shall not of itself discharge either the purchaser’s liability to pay the whole of the price and take delivery of the goods or M&M Controls right to sue for the whole of the price.
We will normally despatch your goods the same or following working day from receipt of your order.
We will deliver your order to any UK address. Our standard delivery uses a national carrier. We reserve the right to use an alternative carrier or delivery service without notice or refund. In most cases, you will receive your goods on the next working day following despatch. A valid signature will be required on delivery. In the unlikely event that you have not received all the goods within 21 days of the date of order, you must notify us immediately. See Delivery Information for more details.
We endeavour to hold sufficient stock to meet all orders. However, on occasions of unexpectedly high demand we may unfortunately run out. If this happens we may delay despatch of your order until new stock is obtained. We also reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to supply or deliver a substituted product or refund you the price paid for such goods as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days. Quantities and measurements are approximate. Exact products may vary from the images shown and are subject to availability. You may contact us at any time to check on the progress of your order.
The Customer may not cancel orders once accepted by M&M Controls, M&M Controls may, at its discretion and in writing, allow an order to be cancelled subject to M&M Controls recovering from the Customer the costs incurred by M&M Controls. In the event of cancellation of part of any order only, M&M Controls may invoice the Customer any difference in selling price per unit applicable to the quantity actually despatched up to the time of cancellation compared to the quantity ordered.
The customer may only return products to M&M Controls, and receive a credit or refund, on the following conditions:
1- The Customer must contact M&M Controls prior to the return of any products and obtain the prior consent of M&M Controls and obtain a returns number (to be quoted on all returned paperwork)

3- The Customer must quote the invoice details or the M&M Controls reference number from the original despatch note, otherwise any credit given for the returned products will be based upon the lowest sales price; and
4- For products returned due to Customer error or no longer required and returned in accordance with 1 - 3 above a handling charge will be applied. This handling charge is dependent on product purchased, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
5- Where the Customer returns products to M&M Controls not in accordance with 1 - 3 above (for example, after 30-days from the date of despatch or in an unfit state) M&M Controls will refuse delivery and return the products at the Customer's expense or may apply a handling charge which relates to the actual cost of reprocessing.
