Delivery charges for overseas orders
If we are able to ship your order overseas then the delivery charge will depend on the weight and size of the parcel
as well as the destination, we will always use the most reliable and
economical service available, unless advised that the order is urgent.
We will advise you of the shipping charges before processing the order.
Please note: We cannot ship aerosol cans to overseas customers.
Oversize and Heavy items
Large or heavy items may not be able to be shipped using the normal
services. We will let you know prior to shipment if any additional
charges may be incurred. Typically any orders with a total weight in
excess of 20kg will fall into this category.
If the parts are in stock we aim to process and despatch the order on
the same day, provided we receive the order before 3pm that day from Monday to Friday, any orders received on a Saturday or Sunday will be despatched on the following Monday. This is subject
to authorisation of the credit card and completion of any security
checks deemed necessary. Average delivery time on items kept in stock
is approx 1-3 working days, but for some special order items delivery can take
up to 28 working days. If the part(s) you have ordered are not in stock we
will contact you on receipt of the order and advise you of the
estimated delivery date. You may at this time choose to cancel the
order and receive a full refund if you do not wish to wait.
Most lightweight items weighing less than 1.5kg are sent with Royal
Mail first class post, and many arrive the next working day, HOWEVER THIS IS
NOT A GUARANTEED NEXT DAY SERVICE. If your item is urgent, please
advise us at the time of ordering and we will send it via the fastest
and most reliable method available to us.
Your first order with us must be delivered to the registered card
holder’s address. Further orders in the future may be (at our
discretion) delivered to a different address to that of the cardholder
(i.e. to a friend/relative who will be home to sign for it or to your
place of work).
Cancelling / Editing an order
Unfortunately, it's not currently possible for you to change or
cancel an existing order yourself on our website. However, if you would
like us to make any amendments to an order that hasn't yet been
shipped, please phone us on 01753 730043 and we will be happy to do
this for you.
Special Order Items
Certain items such as shock absorbers and wheels may be ‘built to
order’ to your specification by the manufacturer and for this reason
may have anything up to a 4-12 week lead time. We will advise you of
this upon receipt of your order, but once you have been notified of the
order being in progress you only have 7 days in which you may cancel
the order, and this must be done in writing (via post or e-mail). Returns/refunds for special order items that have been delivered will
only be considered if the goods are faulty, incorrectly supplied or
have been damaged in transit.
Under normal circumstances, we will wait until your order is complete
before shipping the goods. We can split a delivery into more than one
parcel if required, but there will be an extra charge for the P&P.
Please contact us for details.
Additional Taxes / Import Duty
All items shown on the website are in UK Pounds Sterling (£) and you will be billed in UK Pounds Sterling (£). If UK Pounds Sterling (£) is not the currency in your country, the
amount you will actually pay will vary depending upon the exchange rate
and any fees that your credit card company charges at the time your
transaction is processed.
Goods that we are able to ship to countries outside of the UK may be subject to local
taxes, import duties or customs charges prior to delivery. We suggest
you contact your local customs office for further information prior to
placing your order. PDQ is not liable for any of these costs. VAT at the current UK rate (sales tax) will not be charged to orders
sent to the Channel Islands.
Damaged / Faulty Items
If your goods have been damaged in transit, you should retain the
packaging and contact us within 3 days with as much information as
possible in case we need to make a claim via our delivery company.
If you believe that the products you have purchased are defective or
an error has been made on our part, please contact us as soon as
possible. We will issue a returns reference and a returns form. If you
are sending the package back to us, please provide us with a
description of the fault to aid our inspection team more quickly with
the diagnosis of the problem/defect. We will be happy to either replace
the product or offer a refund for the value of the goods returned upon
receipt and inspection of the items.
We want all our customers to be happy with the goods purchased from us. When you buy goods or make a contract for certain services by
distance means, e.g. over the internet, by telephone, by mail order,
etc., your contract is governed by the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2014. The Regulations give you the right to change your mind and claim a
full refund (including postage) up to the point where you receive the
goods. After you receive the goods you have 14 working days (beginning
the day after you receive the goods) to inspect the goods and, if they
are not suitable, return the goods for a full refund. During the 14 day
cooling-off period, a customer may cancel their order without giving a
reason and without incurring charges or penalties other than charges
incurred in returning the goods. You must take care of the goods and return them in their original
packaging, complete with any accessories, software, manuals,
documentation etc and undamaged. We will not accept items back that
have been fitted to a bike and/or are unfit for resale. Goods must be
returned to us and in a condition which would be acceptable to our
suppliers for return before any refund can take place. In addition the supplier has to give a full
refund to PDQ before any refund can be offered to the purchaser. PDQ will endeavour to reimburse all received funds within 28 days of receipt of returns.
Special Order Items
Products not normally stocked by PDQ, products advised as being ‘special’ at the time of ordering, made to order products, or products made to the purchasers specification (i.e.
Nitron Shocks) may only be returned if the goods are faulty or were
supplied incorrectly by the manufacturer. Returned items which were
specifically imported from abroad may incur the full international
return cost back to the manufacturer (subject to the manufacturer
accepting the return)
NO RETURNS WILL BE ACCEPTED WITHOUT PRIOR AUTHORISATION FROM PDQ, A VALID RETURNS NUMBER AND A COMPLETED RETURNS FORM.
If you wish to return an item, you should contact us immediately by
telephone or email. If we agree to a return we will issue a returns
reference number and a returns form. When returning an item please ensure you enclose the returns reference
number, a proof of purchase (i.e. a copy of the original invoice) and
your completed returns form. Please ensure any goods returned to us are adequately packaged to
survive transportation back to us and please bear in mind items are
returned at the customers own risk and expense (so insuring an
expensive item in transit is a good idea).
