TRANSACTIONS CONCLUDED THROUGH OUR SITE, SHOWROOM OR IN YOUR OWN HOME.

Contracts for the supply of goods, services or information formed through our site or as a result of visits made by you or to you are governed by our terms of contract. Orders placed in person and not online are subject to a 50% deposit with remaining balance due on delivery. `Orders placed online must be paid in full at time of ordering.

CONSUMER RIGHTS – if you are contracting as a consumer, you may cancel the Contract at any time within 14 working days from the day of signing the order slip, with the exception of goods made to order at the customers request and to their individual tastes and requirements. Fabrics for suites, beds and riser recliners chosen by the customer are also excluded from the fourteen day cancellation policy as these are made to order and not off the shelf. To cancel the Contract, you must inform Scootabout Mobility Services in writing. Any cancellation by phone must be confirmed in writing within the permitted cancellation period. This provision does not affect your statutory rights. Any faulty goods will be replaced upon inspection of the fault and if deemed to be faults not caused through consumer error and are manufacturer defects will be replaced or repaired where possible.

REFUNDS POLICY – if you have cancelled the Contract between us within the permitted cancellation period, with the exceptions mentioned above, Scootabout Mobility Services will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. In this case, we will refund the charges paid by you prior to cancellation. Scootabout Mobility Services will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay the charges. Any custom made orders and orders which are chosen specifically by the consumer, are not included in this refund policy and the 50% deposit will not be refunded. Fabric for beds, riser recliners, suites and manufactured to order products are also excluded from refund and the 50% deposit is non refundable.

 

VAT Relief

Individuals who are chronically sick or disabled and whose products are for personal use, or charities where the products are made available to a disabled person for their own personal/domestic use, may be eligible for VAT Relief.

To quality for VAT Relief you must ensure that the VAT Relief checkboxes are selected at checkout, along with stating the precise medical condition. Assuming you meet the criteria, VAT will not be added (unless a particular product has compulsory VAT).

Orders that are received without ticked exemption will incur the VAT charge which will be highlighted clearly to you through our shopping calculator.

Completed VAT Relief Declarations by customers are accepted as prima facie evidence by the Company that a valid medical condition exists for exemption under The VAT Act, and no VAT will be charged on the goods purchased. If, at a later date, HMRC disputes the validity of the medical condition, you will be liable to pay the appropriate VAT that should have been applied. Under these circumstances, Scootabout Mobility Services reserves the right to demand that you pay the VAT amount that is due.

Customers in other EU countries may have to pay VAT depending on location. Customers outside of the European Union do not pay any VAT.

The VAT/sales tax shown in the basket and in our checkout is meant as a guide. The final VAT/sales tax amount will be shown on the printed invoice received with your items.

Damage On Delivery

Goods damaged in transit must be reported immediately by signing the delivery note ‘Damaged On Arrival’. You MUST inform Scootabout Mobility Services as soon as possible on the SAME DAY as delivery/receipt of the goods that damage has been made. Any damaged goods must be retained by the buyer for any inspection. If the delivery note is signed without the comment ‘Damaged On Arrival’ the seller cannot be held responsible for damages. Customers may be requested to supply photos of the damage sustained in delivery and dispatch.

Guarantee

Manufacturer warranties and Scootabout Mobility Services warranties do not affect your consumer rights.

The majority of our products are guaranteed for twelve months by the manufacturer. Our warranty does not cover items used outside of the Northern Ireland and Mainland UK and does not include the cost of the hire of a replacement product(s). For items purchased outside of Northern Ireland, we can provide a return to base warranty at our discretion and at your cost. If any problems are experienced with the product(s), please contact us on 07818284740 or alternatively you can e-mail us: paul@scootaboutmobility.co.uk.

Our warranties provide coverage only if you maintain or use the product as directed. For example, our warranty covers only personal uses – as opposed to business uses – of the product. If there are multiple users of the product then we would not cover any product faults.

Please note that if you have made any modifications to the product then this invalidates the manufacturer’s warranty and Scootabout Mobility Services guarantee.

Every effort has been taken to ensure that the products supplied by Scootabout Mobility Services correspond as closely as possible to the pictures illustrated on our website and brochure, but they may vary due to the unique characteristics and variation of materials.
