Note: the Cycle to Work Scheme expressly forbids shipping/insurance to be included, so must be paid for separately.
2.7: All orders are processed in England in accordance with English law. If you live in Northern Ireland, The Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Wales or Scotland then your order will be processed in accordance with English law applicable at our address, so any variations applicable in your local jurisdiction do not apply.

2.9: We may deliver items outside London’s M25 when there is not an Official Dealer where you are (and/or to countries in the EU).

(Eligible equipment includes cycles and cyclists’ safety equipment. The tax exemption defines a “cycle” as ‘a bicycle, a tricycle, or a cycle having four or more wheels, not being in any case a motor vehicle’. An electrically assisted pedal cycle can be included under the scheme. Cyclists’ safety equipment is not defined in the legislation.)
2.13: Ex-demo items, showcase items, display items, old stock and other items deemed used prior to sale are sold as-it and without any warranty of any kind.

3.1: All prices include VAT (where applicable) at the current UK rate. We reserve the right to express the price exclusive of VAT, but we shall show VAT separately and include it in the total price.
3.2: Where we charge separately for packing, carriage and insurance and other relevant charges, the appropriate rates are set out in our specified pricing structure shown elsewhere on this Website.
3.3: Delivery and VAT are calculated based on UK delivery. Our orders are in GBP Sterling. We do not have any control over the exchange rate applied by banks to transactions made on this website.
4: Security/Fraud Prevention
4.1: For your security, all Credit and Debit Card transactions are subject to stringent security checks, including AVS which checks whether the billing address matches the card-issuer’s records for that card. The Billing address must match the spelling and format that appears on the Card Statement, otherwise the Card will be declined.
Please ensure that you have the Card-holder’s permission before making a purchase.
4.2: 108SQM Ltd. will not store your Credit or Debit Card details. Once the initial transaction has been processed (including via PayPal or Klarna), we cannot access your Credit or Debit Card, other than to make a full or partial refund when necessary.
4.3: Refunded payments are transferred back to the Card, PayPal or Klarna Account which was originally used to pay for the order. 108SQM Ltd. does not retain Credit or Debit Card details, this process is handled by PayPal or Klarna.
4.4: To prevent Credit Card fraud on our website we have introduced the following restrictions:
a. The Billing address must have the UK landline phone number for the Card-holder.
b. Where the Billing address is different from the Shipping address, the Shipping address must be to a recognised UK business, ie one that can be looked up via BT (such as a plc or ltd company) not a residential address.
c. Orders will be delivered to the Billing address, except by prior arrangement.
d. Stock items will be delivered within 24 hours. Special orders and non-stock items will be delivered within 24 hours of our receiving them (typically 2-3 business days from when the order is received). This may require additional time, as/per our Courier’s processes.
If the Card-holder does not have a landline phone or you need to place an order with a separate Shipping address that is not a recognised business (such as a gift that is to be sent directly to the recipient’s home); to ensure the smooth processing of such an order, additional information should be supplied using the Contact Us form or by emailing us, quoting the order number.
Please bear in mind that we may need to make certain enquiries, eg: contact the card holder and/or establish the shipping address to verify the details before dispatch. We cannot guarantee same day dispatch when the Card-holder cannot be contacted to confirm a third party delivery before the shipping deadline. If we are unable to verify to our satisfaction that the details are genuine we will not dispatch the order. Please therefore supply as much information as possible.
Orders where the Billing and the Shipping address are the same are not affected, please where possible ship to the Billing address.
These measures help will us to prevent unauthorised use of your credit card on our Website.
4.5: Items brought to your home/work/equivalent address by our team/associates at our discretion are expressly excluded from Distance Selling Regulations (eg; a family cargo bike/trike arranged as ready to ride).
4.6: Individual items assigned to a chargeback/equivalent must be returned within 7 days in their original/saleable condition by the purchaser and may incur a reasonable restocking fee. Items deemed to have used/modified/customised/damaged prior to return to us shall be rejected and the full sale price due immediately, along with all associated costs.
4.7: Any attempt to defraud through chargeback/equivalent shall be assigned to an appropriate collections agency/equivalent, with all reasonable costs associated with the said action to be recovered.
