Accuracy of content
We have taken every care in the preparation of this website, in particular to ensure that prices quoted (where applicable) are correct at the time of publishing and that all goods have been fairly described. However, orders will only be accepted if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or their prices as advertised on this website (where applicable). All prices are displayed inclusive of VAT unless stated otherwise. If the price of the goods increases between the date we accept your order and the delivery date, we will let you know and ask you to confirm by email that the new price is acceptable. If it is not acceptable, then you will of course have the right to cancel your order. Any weights, dimensions and capacities given about the goods are approximate only. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim all warranties, express or implied, as to the accuracy of the information contained in any of the materials on this website and we shall not be liable to any person for any loss or damage which may arise from the use of any of the information contained on this website.
All items are subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as possible if the goods you have ordered are not available.
Requesting a Quote
Requesting a quote could not be easier (account holders only). Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Proceed' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the quote.
We accept card payments. If you are shopping from outside the UK, place your order, we will send a quote and your card company will convert the transaction to your own currency.
We accept Visa and MasterCard. There is currently no facility to purchase online, although we accept telephone orders.
If you have made a mistake in your order and cannot correct it in the shopping cart, contact us and we will correct the mistake.
When confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. You will need to provide us with your email address and we will notify you by email as soon as possible to confirm receipt of your order. An acceptance of your order will take place on despatch of the good(s) ordered.
You need to be 18 or over and a contract customer to buy knives from us and by purchasing any knife from twtools.co.uk you are confirming you are aged 18 or over.
Please note that the photos shown on the website may vary slightly from those sent out. However they will still be fit for purpose. For example if a tool is purchased we may send one from a different manufacturer but it will still be able to do the same job and have the same safety testing. If it is necessary to buy exactly what the website photo shows then please tell us beforehand and we will try to send out the desired item.
Shipping & Handling
See 'Delivery Schedule' below for more information. Additional carriage charges will be requested for payments outside the UK.
We will charge your credit card account for payment upon receipt of your order unless delivery cannot be fulfilled within 30 days. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the goods from your account then we can cancel the contract and or suspend any further deliveries to you. This does not affect any other rights we may have.
We try to deliver your order right away for stock items. We will normally send your order to you in 2-3 business days. International orders are generally received in under 7-10 days.
You must inform us within two working days if the goods are lost or damaged in transit so that we can make a prompt claim against the delivery company and correct the problem. Please quote your order number in all correspondence.
You agree that proof of delivery supplied by our delivery company is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received.
Delivery charges vary according to the type of goods ordered and cannot be refunded.
Please note that we are only able to deliver to addresses within the United Kingdom (additional carriage charges and delivery times may apply to deliveries to the Isle of Wight, the Isle of Man, the Scottish Isles, parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Channel Isles), Europe (additional carriage charges and delivery times will apply) Australia (additional carriage charges and delivery times will apply) and New Zealand (additional carriage charges and delivery times will apply). We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. Please be precise about where you would like the goods left if you are out when we deliver. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions. We will aim to deliver the goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed. If delivery is delayed due to any cause beyond our reasonable control, the delivery date will be extended by a reasonable period and we will contact you to arrange an alternative time.
Risk of ownership
Risk of damage to or loss of the goods passes to you at the time of delivery to you, or if you fail to take delivery at the agreed time, the time when we tried to deliver. You will only own the goods once they have been successfully delivered and when we have received cleared payment in full.
If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.
For orders made from the UK 20% VAT is added. All other orders are VAT free.
