About AirCon Direct

AirCon Direct is owned and operated by leading IT Company BuyitDirect. We are one of the largest e-tailers in the UK, selling over £75m of goods per year from our websites which included the award winning LaptopsDirect.co.uk. In our 8 years of trading we have built up a superb reputation for selling high quality hardware at low prices whilst delivering excellence in customer service. Over 50% of our business is now generated from word of mouth rather than advertising. For more information about BuyitDirect visit our site - www.BuyitDirect.co.uk.

Unlike many of our competitors who have a web-only presence, you are welcome to speak to a dedicated sales team or visit us at our North of England warehouse to collect your products. Please remember to phone first to check our physical stock levels to avoid disappointment.

Delivery

We only use established couriers such as Citylink, Business Post and ParcelForce to deliver your goods. We have excellent relationships with all our couriers as we ship more than £75 million of goods each year. All deliveries are fully insured against loss and damage for all UK and Irish destinations so that if your goods are lost in transit or arrive damaged we will simply despatch replacement goods at no cost to yourself. Most orders can be tracked online. All deliveries require a signature at the delivery address but this does not have to be the card holder. Sometimes your order will be despatched in more than one delivery as we use more than one warehouse so if you only receive part of your order, there is no need to ring us - instead, please use our online order tracking to find out when the rest of the shipment is due.

We offer a service which many of our competitors cannot provide – we can deliver to an address that is different from your billing address. The must be to a work premises and not to a residential address. We do reserve the right to only deliver to your billing address if we decide the fraud risk is too high. In these circumstances, we will contact you to confirm we will send your order to your registered card address but if you still want us to deliver to an alternative address, you can pay by cleared funds (bank transfer via cash or internet / telephone banking) or you can contact your bank or credit card company and ask them to register an additional shipping address. Please note this will take 72 hours to register and will therefore delay your order.

Our cutoff for next working day delivery is 6pm for Online Orders, and 7pm for Telephone orders. Next day delivery is available subject to stock availability, cleared funds and customer address verification. We do not deliver on Sundays or Bank Holidays and "working day" excludes weekends. All orders for addresses in England, Wales, Southern Scotland, Northern Ireland and Dublin can be delivered next working day. However large air conditioners (commercial units) can take up to 3 days as we use a specialised 2 man courier service. In this case, the courier will call you to arrange a convenient delivery date so please ensure you have given us both your mobile and landline phone numbers. All orders to the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Southern Ireland (except Dublin), Northern Scotland, EC countries and BFPO addresses take 2-5 working days.

Damaged in Transit

If your goods arrive with the outer packaging damaged, the chances are the goods themselves will not be damaged but just in case please include "Arrived Damaged" when you sign the courier's paper work. We reserve the right to charge for failed deliveries as we are charged by the couriers. If goods are returned to us due to no one being available to sign for them, you will be refunded less the delivery charge and an admin fee of £10.

WEEE Regulations

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment.

The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.

The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. · Much of the UK’s WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.

Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.

Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites. We are obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when you buy from us a new Electrical or Electronic product.

For example, if a customer bought a new laptop from us we would accept their old laptop and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.

Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:

Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
