The Company will use reasonable endeavours to meet delivery and/or performance estimates but, in no circumstances shall it be liable to compensate the Customer for non-delivery, non-performance or late delivery or performance.

Where dispatch is delayed for such reasons the Company will use reasonable endeavours to inform the Customer.
Inspection, Defects and Non-Delivery
The Customer must inspect the Supplies as soon as is reasonably practicable after delivery or, in the case of Services, performance and, the Company shall not be liable for any defect in the Supplies unless written notice is given to the Company within 10 days of such date.

Except as detailed below, no order can be cancelled or accepted for credit without the prior written agreement of the Company. If cancellation/credit is accepted by the Company, the Customer must obtain a returns authorisation number from the Company prior to returning the Goods. Goods must then be returned, at the Customer’s risk and expense, for receipt by the Company within 7 days of their delivery by the Company and must be undamaged, in re-saleable condition and in original packaging (which shall include any of the Company’s outer packaging). The Customer should return the Goods to “The Returns Department, Wise Safety Ltd, Unit 5, Wheldon Road, Speke Approach, Widnes, WA8 8FW” quoting the Customer’s account number, postcode and order number. The Customer is responsible for returning Goods to the Company and for providing proof of delivery of such return.
