Terms & Conditions

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – changes from 1 January 2021

On 1 January 2021 the UK will leave the free trade area of the EU. We advise you to place orders now to avoid delays and price increases.

Sales to customers in the EU

Customers in the EU will enjoy tax free prices from George Weil. An EU sales tax will be added at the port of entry to the EU, normally but not always, France (20%). When the customer receives the goods they will be charged for the sales tax and any other costs. During the early months there are expected to be delays in processing the paperwork which may affect delivery timing. If goods are refused by the customer and returned to us, not all costs will be recoverable and will have to be deducted from any refund.

Sales to customers in the UK

There will be additional costs in moving goods from our suppliers in EU. These are impossible to estimate, but we must advise that, for larger items we will have to add an import surcharge in the region of 7% of the retail cost. As we gain experience of the impact, the surcharge will be removed and the retail price set clearly.

Delivery

We deliver anywhere in the UK & Worldwide.  Expand for details...

UK Delivery

For orders placed on week days before 12 noon, our policy is to process and dispatch on the same day as they are received.

If your parcel weighs less than 3kg, it will normally be delivered by 1st Class Royal Mail, otherwise it will be delivered by courier. Royal Mail now say that delays of up to 7 days can be expected, and will not consider enquiries about missing parcels until 15 days have elapsed. Packs over 3kg, sent by Courier may be delayed by a few days.

Delivery time is not predictable but will be before 5.30pm, week days. Please ensure that your goods can be received as we cannot guarantee free re-delivery. UK handling & delivery charges are:

    • orders up to £74.99 = £5.95 or choose to pay £8.95 for 1st Class Royal Mail Tracked Delivery
    • orders over £75.00 = FREE

Overseas Delivery

Orders from overseas customers are always welcome. For each non-UK order we receive, the goods are weighed and a price for delivery is then calculated. We therefore do not include the delivery charge at checkout. We use International Tracked & Signed as our courier. Your parcel is fully tracked during its journey and will require a signature at the time of delivery.

To reserve your products and to receive a quote for delivery to your address please proceed through the checkout. This payment is for the value of the goods in your shopping cart. You will be advised of the delivery cost in a separate email within 24 hours.

– If you wish to proceed with your order we will request the additional payment.
– If you do not wish to proceed with your order we will refund your initial payment within 24 hours.

Please note: Orders are not dispatched until we have received your confirmation and the completed payment.

For orders from within the EU, VAT at the current rate is included in the prices shown on this web site. If you are registered for sales tax within the EU, please include your sales tax number in the comments section, in this case your invoice will be adjusted to remove tax. For orders from countries outside the EU & Channel Islands, the total order value will be adjusted to remove the VAT. The buyer may be liable for import tax and duty at the rate set by their government. On 1 January 2021 the UK will leave the free trade area of the EU. Customers in the EU will enjoy tax free prices from George Weil. An EU sales tax will be added at the port of entry to the EU, normally but not always, France (20%). When the customer receives the goods they will be charged for the sales tax and any other costs. During the early months there are expected to be delays in processing the paperwork which may affect delivery timing. If goods are refused by the customer and returned to us, not all costs will be recoverable and will have to be deducted from any refund.

Returning Goods

We hope you do not experience any problems with the goods you receive from us, however it is sometimes necessary to return items.  Expand for details...

You may change your mind and cancel your order at any time from placing the order until 7 working days after you take delivery. Your cancellation must be in writing, either by letter or email, and the cost of returning the goods will remain your responsibility. The goods must be returned undamaged and capable for resale at the full price. You will receive a refund of the product cost, net of any restocking charge (10%) made, within 30 days.  If preferred, a credit towards your account can be made. This guarantee cannot be extended to any item that has been made to your specification, or which is not a stock item, purchased to your special request. Your statutory rights are not affected by this guarantee.

If, in the unlikely event that the wrong goods are supplied, please telephone us. A full refund, including postage costs, will be made on receipt of the returned goods.

Damaged/Missing Goods and Items out of Stock

We work hard to fulfil your orders and to resolve issues.  Expand for details...

Due to the nature of the materials we sell, there will often be variation from batch to batch and with the papers, between sheets. We suggest you order the required quantity to complete a project and we will try to match items as closely as possible. Whilst we are happy to give advice on product use, we cannot accept liability as conditions of use are totally outside our control.

Although, next working day delivery is not guaranteed, there is rarely a delay. Parcels sent by our courier company can be traced through their tracking system, and you can track your own deliveries by choosing Royal Mail Tracked Delivery at the checkout. Royal Mail advise that delays of up to 7 days can be expected, and will not consider enquiries about missing parcels until 15 days have elapsed. Call or email us with your concerns and we will investigate.

Do not accept parcels that appear to be damaged and notify us immediately if you have refused delivery or received a damaged parcel. If you do take delivery it is advisable to sign for goods as “unexamined”. Should the contents be damaged, you will need to answer enquiries and keep the packaging as evidence, otherwise we cannot accept responsibility for compensation. Damaged goods will be exchanged or refunded in full, plus any additional postage you incur.

Our policy is to fill 95% of orders from stock. If we are out of stock on any item priced over £4.95, you will be notified and the remainder of your order will be sent as soon as the goods are available at no additional carriage cost.

Prices

We offer truly competitive prices, often the lowest in the market.  Expand for details...

Prices are regularly reviewed in an effort to offer the best value, and we undertake to set prices competitively. Many of the products are imported, and fluctuations in the exchange rate and inbound carriage costs will affect pricing. When possible prices are reduced to pass savings onto our customers, although it is sometimes necessary to increase them.

All prices are shown inclusive of VAT (sales tax) at the current rate and will be charged to EU residents using the rate applicable at the invoice date. Non EU residents, and residents of the Channel Islands, do not pay sales tax for orders delivered to their residential address. George Weil is registered for VAT in the UK, our VAT number is GB233701983
