Doug Hillard Sports Ltd reserves the right to make changes in the specification of the Goods which are required to conform with any applicable statutory or EC requirements, or where the Goods are to be supplied to Doug Hillard Sports Ltd’s specifications, which do not materially affect their quality or performance. Whilst all sizes and measurements are approximate only we will use our best endeavours to ensure that they are as accurate as possible.

The price of the Goods will be Doug Hillard Sports Ltd’s quoted price and is exclusive of Value Added Tax, and all costs or charges in relation to packaging, loading, unloading, carriage and insurance. Doug Hillard Sports Ltd reserves the right, by giving notice to you at any time before delivery, to increase the price of the Goods to reflect any increase in the cost to Doug Hillard Sports Ltd which is due to any factor beyond the control of Doug Hillard Sports Ltd (such as, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation, currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in the costs of labour, material or other costs of manufacture). Any such increase in price shall be intimated to you and you shall have a period of five working days to confirm whether you wish to proceed with the Order. Your failure to reply to our said intimation will be deemed to be acceptance of the price increase. Any increase in price due to a change in delivery dates, quantities or specification of the Goods which is requested by you, or any delay caused by any instructions of you or failure of you to give Doug Hillard Sports Ltd adequate information or instructions may also result in an increase in price, which will not be subject to further agreement by you.

Non Registered Users are required to provide credit card details when placing an order as Doug Hillard Sports Ltd is entitled to payment for the Goods before commencing delivery of the Goods. If you fail to make payment for the Goods Doug Hillard Sports Ltd will be entitled to cancel the contract or suspend delivery of the Goods to you until payment is made in full.

This website is restricted to the delivery of Goods to the UK mainland only. For customers on the Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Channel Islands, Western Isles & Northern Ireland, please contact us and we will be glad to advise you of our services to these areas. Delivery of the Goods will be made once the Goods have been delivered to the place of delivery notified by you to Doug Hillard Sports Ltd and the accompanying consignment note has been signed by an individual aged 18 or over on your behalf. It will be your responsibility to check that the number of boxes or items delivered matches the accompanying consignment note before signing. We aim to deliver a very high standard of service and we will make every effort to deliver the Goods, as near to the specified delivery date as possible, however delays are sometimes inevitable due to unforeseen factors. Therefore, any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are approximate only and Doug Hillard Sports Ltd will not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods howsoever caused. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the contract. The Goods may be delivered by Doug Hillard Sports Ltd in advance of the quoted delivery date. If Doug Hillard Sports Ltd fails to deliver the Goods for any reason other than any cause beyond Doug Hillard Sports Ltd’s reasonable control or your fault, and Doug Hillard Sports Ltd is accordingly liable to you, Doug Hillard Sports Ltd’s liability shall be limited to a refund of the Price of the Goods.
If you fail to take delivery of the Goods or fail to give Doug Hillard Sports Ltd adequate delivery instructions at the time stated for delivery (otherwise than by reason of any cause beyond your reasonable control or by reason of Doug Hillard Sports Ltd’s fault) then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to Doug Hillard Sports Ltd, Doug Hillard Sports Ltd may: store the Goods until actual delivery and charge you for the reasonable costs (including insurance) of storage; or sell the Goods at the best price readily obtainable and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses) account to you for the excess over the price under the contract or charge you for any shortfall below the price under the contract.
Risk and Property
Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods will pass to you at the time when Doug Hillard Sports Ltd has tendered delivery of the Goods. Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the Goods, or any other provision of the Terms, the property in the Goods will not pass to you until Doug Hillard Sports Ltd has received cleared funds in full payment of all sums due.

Where any valid claim in respect of any of the Goods which is based on any defect in the quality or condition of the Goods or their failure to meet specification is notified to Doug Hillard Sports Ltd in accordance with these terms, Doug Hillard Sports Ltd shall be entitled to replace the Goods (or the part in question) free of charge or, at Doug Hillard Sports Ltd’s sole discretion, refund to you the price of the Goods (or a proportionate part of the Goods), but Doug Hillard Sports Ltd shall have no further liability to you. Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by Doug Hillard Sports Ltd’s negligence, Doug Hillard Sports Ltd shall not be liable to you by reason of any representation (unless fraudulent), or any implied warranty, condition or other term, or any duty at common law, or under the express terms of the contract, for any indirect, special or consequential loss or damage (whether for loss of profit, goodwill or reputation or otherwise), economic losses (including without limitation loss of revenues, data, profits, contracts, business or anticipated savings) costs, expenses or other claims for compensation whatsoever (whether caused by the negligence of Doug Hillard Sports Ltd, its employees or agents or otherwise) which arise out of or in connection with the supply of the Goods or their use by you, and the entire liability under or in connection with the contract shall not exceed the price of the Goods paid by you for the Goods supplied, except as expressly provided in these terms. Notwithstanding the above, Doug Hillard Sports Ltd’s aggregate liability (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) for loss of damage shall in any event be limited to a sum equal to the amount paid or payable by you for the Goods in respect of one incident or series of incidents attributable to the same clause. Doug Hillard Sports Ltd shall not be in breach of contract by reason of any delay in performing, or any failure to perform, any of Doug Hillard Sports Ltd’s obligations in relation to the Goods, if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond Doug Hillard Sports Ltd’s reasonable control.
