If you think a product supplied by us is faulty or has developed a fault within the warranty period please contact us by any of the listed methods, (phone or email being preferred). Very often we can diagnose and advise solutions without the need to return goods to us. Faulty goods will be replaced or refunded accordingly and you will be kept informed at all times. Should the goods be deemed not faulty after testing we will contact you and do our best to help you through the installation and set-up procedure as required. Charges may apply for the expense of returning items and you will be advised should this be the case.

All prices are correct at time of publication, (E and O E). We reserve the right to alter our prices if VAT rates or our suppliers' prices change. All prices are for payment with order and we make NO surcharges for credit card payments.
Orders for delivery within the EEC will be charged VAT at the current UK rate. VAT can be deducted only if the goods are dispatched directly to a non-EEC country. For VAT refunds under BFPO status, please send a copy of your certificate of entitlement with every order.
We endeavor to hold stock of all the items we advertise and over 90% of goods are normally dispatched on the day we receive the order. We will inform you in the event of any lengthy delay. We operate a number of delivery options:
Deliveries to UK addresses
STANDARD delivery. This sent by Royal Mail or courier service and usually arrives within three working days (although this is not guaranteed). This delivery option costs £4.00 per order.
NEXT WORKING DAY* delivery. This is sent by Royal Mail or courier service and usually arrives the next working day for the majority of mainland UK. This option costs £8.00 per order. Deliveries to remote areas and offshore islands may take longer or cost more, in which case we will contact you before dispatch.
Order processing notes
Please be aware that we process all orders (telephone, fax, post, e-mail and on-line) immediately on receipt until 3.00pm. Orders received after the 3.00pm cut-off may not be processed until the following day.
Orders received on Fridays after the 3.00pm cut off, on Saturdays and on Sundays are processed for dispatch the following Monday. (excluding UK Public Holidays). Saturday deliveries can sometimes be arranged, please call our sales order line for rates and options.
Deliveries to Non-UK addresses
Orders for delivery outside the UK will be sent by airmail, charged at cost. If the payment method is by credit card, we will only deliver to the cardholder's registered address.
*Obviously we can only process your on-line order when we've actually received it, and whilst email is usually more or less instantaneous, just occasionally mail server routing can introduce a delay of a few hours, (particularly when some kind soul decides to email the whole world with their latest virus!). All we're saying is that good as this technology is, if something is absolutely time-critical to you we'll always recommend that you pick up the phone and talk to a human.
All the products we sell are covered by a 12-month (return to base) guarantee unless otherwise stated.
To the extent permitted by law, Keene Retail Ltd shall not be liable to the Customer 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 any Contract with the Customer, for any indirect, special or unforeseen loss or damage (whether for loss of profit or otherwise), costs, expenses or other claims for compensation whatsoever which arise out of or in connection with the supply of the Goods or their use or resale by the Customer.. Whilst every effort is made to deliver goods in accordance with the stated timescales, Keene Retail Ltd do not accept any liability for consequential losses incurred by late delivery of the goods.
ERRORS AND OMISSIONS
We have made every effort to ensure that the information contained in our web site and catalogue is correct and wherever possible we have included a picture of each product. Whilst this is intended to aid your selection we cannot guarantee the true likeness of product colours or size due to the imaging methods involved. Specifications may be subject to change without notice, and to preserve continuity of supply we may occasionally supply an alternative branded product of at least an equivalent (or better) specification. If there is any significant difference in specification we will contact you before processing you order. Whilst we try to ensure the utmost accuracy in our published prices, errors may occur. If we discover a pricing error relating to an order you have placed we will contact you as soon as possible with a full explanation, a revised offer, and the option to cancel. The published prices are provided as an invitation to treat and not as a confirmed sale. The contract is confirmed upon supply of goods.
INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE
We do our best to provide accurate technical information in our catalogue and web site and also by telephone and email. Please note however, that we cannot be held responsible for the consequences of any action taken or purchases made on the basis of that information. Put another way, we will do our best to help you, our customer, make the right decision when purchasing equipment and give you the most up-to-date information we have, supplemented where possible with opinions based upon our own experience. However, the end decision on whether and what to purchase has to be yours, and yours alone.
