These terms and conditions are written in accordance with the UK Distance Selling Regulations 2000. Such terms relate only to business done with Retail Customers. They do not cover business to business selling.
 
Contract
The contract will be deemed to be completed when the customer receives an email confirming the goods ordered, the prices, the delivery arrangements and the total cost including taxes. The order will be deemed to be complete when the email is sent whether it is received or not. This will be done by at least the time the order is received by the customer.
All orders will be completed within 30 days wherever possible. Should the order not be completed within 30 days then the customer has the right to cancel the order without charges. During the placing of the order the customer will be made aware of the normal stock status of the parts being ordered. In the event of items not being in stock, the customer can choose to take what is in stock at once, with a further shipment when back-ordered items come in, or wait for the back ordered items to come in and have all parts shipped together when available.
No substitute goods will be sent automatically to the customer but a salesman may offer substitute goods which the customer can decide whether to accept or not. This acceptance must be in writing.
Prices quoted will be honoured for seven days. Once an order has been placed the price will remain valid for 30 days. All unavoidable changes in pricing will be communicated to the customer for acceptance or refusal before parts are shipped. This includes carriage charges.
 
Cancellations and returns
The customer has seven working days (excluding weekends and public holidays) from goods receipt to decide whether to keep the goods or not. There are certain restrictions to this rule. For faulty or damaged parts please see separate section.
The customer must inform Myton Automotive in writing within seven working days of goods receipt in writing if he wishes to cancel the order. This should be done by sending an email to support@mytonautomotive.com. Please include in this email your order number and the reason for cancellation.
If you don't have email, you can also cancel your order by sending a letter to Myton Automotive, 13 Unit Neilston Street Business Centre, Leamington Spa, CV31 2AZ. FAO Returns Dept. Please include your order number and the reason for cancellation.
Once the cancellation has been served it is the customers' duty to restore the goods to Myton Automotive and in the meantime to take reasonable care of them so that when they are received by Myton Automotive they can be sold again as new. All return costs are payable by the customer and will in no way be subsidised by Myton Automotive. The responsibility to take care of the goods will continue for up to six months and will be open-ended if within that period the supplier serves a notice requiring the customer to hand them over.
If goods are not returned by the customer then the customer must make them available for collection by Myton Automotive. Goods will remain under the customers' care until received and checked by the Returns Department and deemed fit to be resold as new by Myton Automotive. Should the goods be returned in a state unfit for resale as new then the customer must either have them removed from the premises of Myton Automotive or they will be shipped to the customer at the customers expense within 14 days of the customer being informed that the goods are not acceptable for resale. The customer will be informed by email or letter.
If Myton Automotive receives the goods in a condition that enables them to be sold again as new then a refund will be issued to the customer within 30 days of the cancellation being issued.
 
Restrictions
Specially ordered goods may not be cancelled or returned unless damaged in transit or faulty. These are ones that have been made to the customers' specification and include all "made to order" trim parts and customers own units supplied for reconditioning. Non-stocked parts which have to be specially ordered are also non-returnable. Once Myton Automotive has received the order a 7 working days cooling off period will be given to the customer before the order is placed with our supplier. Once the order has been placed with the supplier the customer cannot cancel the order and no refund will be given. Should the customer wish to opt out of the seven day cooling-off period so as not to delay the order, this must be done in writing.
 
Damaged goods
Goods that are found to be damaged on receipt must be reported to Myton Automotive within 7 working days of receipt. Should damaged goods be reported after this time then the goods will not be accepted back for a refund or replacement. These goods must not be used and should remain in the original packaging wherever possible. Myton Automotive will arrange collection of these goods and refunds will be issued as soon as it is confirmed that the goods are damaged. It may be necessary for the carriage company responsible for delivery to the customer to inspect the goods at the customers' premises or the address to which the goods were delivered. The customer must make the goods available to the carriage company, as it may be necessary for a refund.
 
Warranty
Our guarantee applies only where purchased goods have been used solely for the intended purpose and have not been used in any form of motor sport i.e. racing, rallying, or speed trials.
All parts are fully warranted against defects in materials and workmanship. Warranty will not cover labour, failure of a related component, failure resulting from faulty installation or misuse. Liability will not exceed the cost of the original component. During the warranty period (usually 12 months) please contact us immediately should any problem occur. We will then advise you, before replacing the failed component, as to the best course of action.
With all claims, both a copy of the customer invoice and our returns form (filled in by yourselves) must be received by us prior to you returning the parts. We will decide the method of return freight and will charge it to you, the customer, if the fault is not ours.
 
Faulty goods
Faulty goods must be reported to Myton Automotive as soon as the fault occurs, if within the warranty period. These goods must stop being used immediately. Myton Automotive will arrange collection of these goods and refunds will be issued as soon as it is confirmed that the goods are faulty. This could be up to 30 working days from when Myton Automotive receives the goods, as some goods will have to be sent to the supplier for testing. If replacement goods are required in the meantime the customer must pay for the goods and shipping in full. Once confirmation of a fault has been given in writing to Myton Automotive then the customer will be refunded in full for the faulty parts and original shipping. Should the goods be found to be in perfect working order the customer will not be refunded and Myton Automotive reserves the right to charge the customer for any carriage costs incurred in the collection of the parts from the customer. The customer will then have the choice to either have the parts returned to him at his costs or to cancel the parts at which point the return will be dealt with as a cancelled order.
 
Delivery
Myton Automotive will make every attempt to ensure your order is delivered in the time specified but we cannot be responsible for the late delivery of parcels by a third party. In particular letter post cannot be guaranteed. No compensation will be paid for incidental losses incurred as a result of late delivery. When a courier is being used for delivery a signature will be necessary for the goods to be delivered. Goods cannot be left without such signature and there may be a further charge if the courier has to return.
 
Shortages
Shortages must be reported in writing within 7 working days. All goods should be examined immediately upon receipt for damage or faults, as your warranty period begins the day of receipt.
 
Payment
Your credit card will not be debited until the point at which the order is ready for dispatch apart from specially ordered goods that cannot be cancelled once ordered (see restrictions).
Payment can be taken from the following credit / debit cards: Visa / Delta, MasterCard, Maestro / Solo & American Express. Postal orders in pounds sterling or cheques denominated in pounds sterling and drawn on a UK. We also accept PayPal through our website payment gateway.
 
Bank Transfers are also acceptable. Should you wish to pay by bank transfer please refer to our bank transfer page. Once payment has cleared goods will be released apart from specially ordered goods.
