If for any reason goods are not paid for in full prior to delivery, the goods remain the property of Allens of Caledon until fully paid.

Deliveries can only be made to one address for each purchase made.

Guarantees

We guarantee the goods for one year. This guarantee does not cover any defect, fault or damage which arises through general wear and tear or mis-use (mis-use includes any failure to care for the goods in accordance with any care advice which we give to you). Also the guarantee does not cover defects which are brought to your attention before you agree to purchase the goods and which are noted on the sales invoice, i.e. clearance goods. Notification of any defect needs to be made to either the store of purchase or our dedicated service department in your area as soon as is practicable. Please note this guarantee does not affect your statutory rights.

If you notify us within the one year guarantee period of any defect or fault which your goods have developed, provided that our inspection confirms that the defect or fault is covered by our guarantee, we will take such measures as may be necessary to rectify the problem to your reasonable satisfaction.
