  • Standby RSG UK Limited shall not be responsible for any loss or damage caused either directly or indirectly by the goods or by any act for omission in connection therewith.
  • If the exchange rate varies by so much that when buying goods originated outside the UK means that Standby RSG would have to sell the goods on at a loss Standby RSG reserves the right not to supply these goods without prejudice to either party even if the associated price list, quote or tender is still technically valid. Also, conversely Standby RSG accepts their client will have rights where exchange variation means it is not profitable for them to trade with affected goods.

Order Process

  • All orders made through the website are subject to acceptance by Standby RSG UK Limited.

  • Standby RSG UK Limited reserves the right to decline to trade with any person or organisation. In addition, and not withstanding any other provisions of these conditions of sale, Standby RSG may decline to accept any order. In the event that Standby RSG UK Limited declines to accept an order in respect of which payment has been received, the full amount of such payment will be refunded (including any delivery charges).

  • Website orders to be charged to a Credit Account held by a customer with Standby RSG UK Limited will only be accepted with an official purchase order number.

  • After submitting an order to us, we will send you an order acknowledgement email with your order details. Please note that this email is an acknowledgement and is not an acceptance of your order.

  • Acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on receipt of delivery to you of the products ordered unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it (see our Returns Policy).

  • When confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

  • For certain goods, information concerning stock availability is not available on this website. If you order goods which are not available from stock, we will contact you by email or telephone to discuss how you wish to proceed. You will have the option to wait until the goods are available from stock, or cancel your order in accordance with our returns policy.
  • Written confirmation of website orders must be clearly marked as such. In the event of order duplication through failure to clearly endorse the confirmation, the customer will be liable for the full invoice value of the duplicated order. Such duplicated deliveries will only be accepted for credit subject to a 20% handling charge, and must be returned to us carriage paid and in original packaging.

  • In the event of cancellation of part of an order, Standby RSG UK Limited reserves the right to invoice for any difference between discount offered on the original quantity ordered and the actual quantity taken plus any appropriate restocking charge depending upon the circumstances surrounding the cancellation. Noting it is the policy of Standby RSG to apply ‘goodwill’ wherever possible and in the interest of maintaining good, long term customer relations will not normally make this charge. Orders where specific custom-built goods have been ordered for Customer requirements (schedule and non-stock items) cannot be cancelled.

  • Notwithstanding delivery and passing of the risk, legal and beneficial ownership of the goods shall remain in Standby RSG UK Limited until full payment for the goods has been made. Until ownership passes, the Purchaser shall hold the goods as bailee for Standby RSG UK Limited and must keep the goods free from any change lien or other encumbrance. If the Purchaser purports to sell the goods before payment is made to Standby RSG UK Limited, the proceeds of the sale shall belong to Standby RSG UK Limited until payment in full is received. Where such goods are used, even with loss of identity, the legal ownership to the resultant product shall vest in Standby RSG UK Limited and any proceeds of sale in respect of goods unused or resultant products shall be received by the Purchaser as agents for Standby RSG UK Limited and on their account.
