Online Shopping

We have taken care in presenting the products on our website as accurately as possible. The images you see will depend on your monitor's display and colour capabilities. We are therefore unable to guarantee that the product images you see are an accurate representation of the actual merchandise. Before you place an order you should read the Delivery Information and Returns Policy.


Customer Experience

Our customer experience team will be delighted to help you place an order over the telephone, advise you on the range of products we offer on our website and help you with queries about payment.

Our customer experience team can be contacted on 01702 713645 during the following times:

  • Tuesday - Saturday: 9:30am - 5pm

Calls are charged at national rate. Alternatively you can email us at info@cjvinten.co.uk


Contact Details

Our primary method of communication with you is by email. Therefore please ensure the email address you provide us with is correct. All order and despatch confirmations will be sent to the email address you provide. In the unlikely event of a problem with your order, we will contact you by telephone. Again, please ensure the contact telephone numbers you provide are accurate.


Orders

Once you have completed an online purchase, we will send you an email confirming your order details.

When your order is placed, the funds for your order will be ‘pending’ ready for us to ‘collect’ when we despatch your order.
Pending funds means the amount of authorised money is set aside, away from your available balance and the amount is not debited completely until the day of despatch. Goods will not be despatched until payment collection has been successful.

Whilst we are under no obligation to accept your order, we would normally do so where:

(i) the product is available
(ii) the order reflects current pricing  
(iii) your credit card/debit card payment is approved by your credit card/debit card company and  
(iiii) your order passes our verification checks

Orders placed using a debit/credit card must be based within the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, we do not accept non-UK credit or debit cards.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept PayPal payments over the telephone.

All products and/or services displayed on this website are subject to availability. Prices of products may change from time to time. We confirm availability and price at the time your order is placed. If a product is unavailable when we come to despatch your order, we will contact you either by phone or email.


Tracking Orders

If you have selected a residential or business address for delivery, once you have received your order confirmation your delivery will be due the following day (excluding Sundays).

If your order has not been received within the agreed times (see your despatch note for confirmation of this) then please contact us.


Expected Arrival of Deliveries

All orders received online at C J Vinten are processed and, depending on stock availability, are despatched as promptly as possible and normally delivered in 1-3 working days. Please see the delivery information on the product pages for more specific information.

Where any products have a longer delivery time of 48 hours, our customer experience team will contact you by email to confirm the approximate date of despatch.

Delivery times stated are subject to order approval. Please visit our delivery page for complete information. 


Delivery Address

All deliveries will be made to you at the addresses specified by you in the order. We may, at our discretion and expense, deliver parts of your order separately. If we cannot deliver the products to you at the address you have specified for any reason (other than when we are at fault), we will notify you and store the products. If you wish us to redeliver the products to you, you will need to authorise us to charge your credit card/debit card for such re-delivery. If we do not hear from you within 28 days, we will cancel the order and refund your payment to you less any reasonable delivery charges we have incurred.

A signature may be required to receive the order and you will be responsible for the products as soon as they are delivered. Ownership of the products shall pass to you once we have received payment in full.

If you decide to have your order delivered to a different address than your own, a signature may still be required and the general conditions of delivery will remain unchanged.


Lost Packages

Even though packages are sent via secure mail, on rare occasions we do experience losses whilst in transit. Please get in touch with our customer experience team if you think this may be the case with your order.

Please be aware that if we are not contacted within 30 days, an insurance claim cannot be made and thus the customer will be unable to claim any loss from C J Vinten.


Validation Checks

All credit, debit and charge card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

In addition, in the interests of preventing fraudulent use of credit, debit and charge cards, will validate the names, addresses and other information supplied during the order process against commercially available records (e.g Electoral Roll data, Credit Reference Services). A third party may also be instructed to complete these checks. By ordering from the cjvinten.co.uk website you consent to such checks being made. We may need to contact you by letter, telephone or email to verify details before we are able to process and dispatch your order, or we may be unable to accept your order. Any information given may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of the information.

All information provided will be treated in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. These measures are taken as extra protection for you, to ensure your online shopping experience with us is as safe and secure as possible.
