1. Your Order
1.1 We accept your order when we email you to accept it. It is at that point a contract comes into existence between us, and we will inform you of our order reference. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you in writing and not charge you for the product(s) ordered. We are under no obligation to accept any order from you.
1.2 We comply with the law as it applies in the UK. We cannot confirm that details will also comply with laws of other countries. It is your responsibility to ensure that it is lawful within the jurisdiction(s) in which you use this website and arrange to ship our products.

If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract.
1.4 We sell new parts made by original manufacturers and resell parts from taken from vehicles sold to us, and resell them to the public. We are under a legal duty to supply goods in conformity with their description and our contract with you. You will find the description of the goods on the product page where the goods are listed for sale on our website. If the goods are not listed please contact our presales support staff. The description of the goods offered for sale on our website describes goods as second-hand if they are not offered as new
1.5 Accordingly, the products which we supply may be sourced from second-hand vehicles and are second-hand goods. Accordingly, you accept that such goods are not new and should not be expected to function as new products. Additional information on any stock or non-stock item can be obtained by telephoning Eurospares directly prior to purchase. All information provided is correct at the time of purchase. We also manufacture and supply customised parts made to your specification where parts are obsolete and no longer available
1.6 Other than where we set out below, we do not provide any warranty in respect of the condition, operation, working state or otherwise of second-hand goods. Such goods are purchased at your own risk. Should you require supply of new goods, please speak to one of our customer services department to discuss availability and how we might be of assistance to you.
2.1 If you have asked to collect the products from our premises, you can collect them from us at any time during our working hours of 9.30am to 4.00pm on weekdays (excluding public holidays) from our premises at Unit 13-15, Fifth Avenue, Bluebridge Industrial Estate Halstead Essex CO9 2SZ.
2.2 Other than where you request to collect the goods, we will deliver them to you as soon as reasonably possible and in any event within 30 days after the day on which we accept your order. If we are not able to do so, we will contact you with an estimated delivery date.
2.3 If our supply of the products ordered is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to enquire whether the contract may be ended and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.

b. delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or
c. you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
