UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE, THE GOODS SOLD BY US ARE PRE-OWNED AND PRE-USED GOODS AND, AS SUCH, MAY NOT CONFORM TO THE SAME STANDARD AS BRAND NEW PRODUCTS. THEY ARE, HOWEVER, REFURBISHED OR REPAIRED.
Whilst we use our best efforts to ensure their accuracy, all pictures, illustrations, details and specifications in any marketing material are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Goods. They will not form part of the Contract (as defined below).
When you place your order, this is deemed to be an offer by you to purchase the Goods specified in the order, at the price specified in the order, and upon these terms and conditions.
Contract is formed between E-Cycle and the Customer at point of the customer receiving the goods.
If you do not receive any confirmation of order within 5 working days of us receiving your cleared funds, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will only deliver to addresses with a UK Postcode. Under no circumstances will we deliver outside of the UK.
Where payment is by credit or debit card we will only deliver to the registered cardholders address.
Your order will normally be despatched within 5 working days (Monday to Friday) of receipt of cleared funds. Please allow up to 10 days for a cheque to clear.
If you suspect that your package has been damaged in transit you should reject the goods or sign for the goods as damaged.
We cannot be held responsible for failed deliveries. Claims of goods damaged in transit must be noted at the time of the delivery to the delivery person or on the signing sheet, and notified to E-Cycle Ltd as soon as possible after delivery by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
We aim to have Goods ready to ship to you within 5 working following acceptance of your order. We will arrange for delivery of the Goods by our nominated carrier. Postage and packing will be payable at the rate agreed in the order, unless you instruct us that you will be instructing your own courier to collect the Goods. If we have not delivered the Goods within 30 days of you placing your order then you may cancel the contract and we will refund any money paid by you. You will be responsible for any damage to or loss of the Goods from the date the Goods are delivered to you. Delivery of the Goods shall be deemed to take effect when you have signed for the Goods as directed by the carrier or otherwise when you have received them. If you have instructed your own courier, delivery shall be deemed to take effect from when the goods are collected. Claims for damage to or short delivery of goods must be made at the time of delivery and notified to us initially by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are responsible for ensuring that any damage to the Goods or short delivery is marked on the carrier’s delivery paperwork. Failure to do this may invalidate any claim made by you.
We only accept the payment methods as described in our payment section. Unless we agree otherwise in writing, payment is due prior to the goods being dispatched. We accept payment by cheque (clearance of cheque may be required before goods are released for dispatch), credit card (which will be debited at time of order), bank transfer, or cash in person.
We reserve the right to take payments for the funds prior to shipping of goods; however we will endeavor to take payment as close to this time as possible
All payments are made inclusive of VAT. We are not able to charge excluding VAT prices.
All refunds are subject to delay based on your card issuer’s processes; we cannot expedite the time taken for funds to appear on your card.
We can only make refunds for unwanted/damaged/faulty items once the item has been received into our warehouse.
DAMAGED OR DEFECTIVE GOODS
THIS CONDITION IS IN ADDITION TO YOUR OTHER RIGHTS RELATING TO DEFECTIVE GOODS GIVEN TO YOU BY LAW.
The Goods consist of refurbished equipment. All goods are sold subject to the warranty period (if any) stated in the product details. For the avoidance of doubt if no warranty period is specified then the goods are sold without any warranty.
You should inspect the Goods for defects or damage as soon as possible following delivery. If you find a defect or damage on delivery, if possible, you should note such damage on the delivery report or if that is not possible tell us about the defect or damage by contacting E-Cycle Ltd at email@example.com as soon as possible and we will arrange for their return. If the Goods are found to be damaged prior to delivery to you or defective and notified to us during any agreed warranty period, if we accept that such defect is covered by the warranty we will at our option repair or replace the Goods. If repair or replacement of the Goods is not possible we will refund the price paid by you. Our obligation to repair or replace damaged or defective Goods, or to refund the price paid by you, will not apply where:
- You have improperly altered the Goods in any way whatsoever, or have subjected them to misuse or unauthorised repair
- The Goods have been improperly installed or connected (other than by us)
- The damage or defect is the result of fair wear and tear or is due to accidental or wilful damage (other than by us)
- You have not complied with any instructions from us or the manufacturer of the Goods as to storage, maintenance and use of the Goods in all respects
- You have failed to notify us of any problem or suspected problem within the relevant warranty period from the date of delivery of the Goods.
YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL
If you are a consumer (i.e. you are not purchasing either wholly or in part for your business or you are not a business) you have the right, in addition to your other rights, to cancel the contract and receive a refund from us. You must inform us in writing if you wish to cancel within seven working days, starting on the day after the Goods are delivered to you. If you choose to cancel then you must return the Goods to us at your cost and risk and we advise you to ensure the Goods are adequately insured during the return journey. You must ensure that you take reasonable care of the Goods whilst they are in your possession and if you fail to comply with this obligation we may have a right of action against you for compensation. We will cover the cost of you returning any Goods that we have provided as a substitute for Goods that you have ordered. If you have not returned the Goods within 14 days of cancellation or when requested by us to do so, whichever occurs first, we can collect the Goods from you at your cost.

Refurbished equipment sold by E-Cycle Ltd is covered by our warranty, the duration of which will depend on the unit you have purchased. Our standard warranty for all models is three months from date of receipt (unless your online order clearly states a longer period).
The warranty covers the hardware of the unit and does not include software or consumables such as ink or batteries. The warranty does not cover any problems which arise through misuse or accidental damage.

In the first fourteen days we will collect the unit from you via courier. After this period the cost of returning any item will fall to the buyer. We offer a collection service via our courier for £9.99. In all cases you must ensure that your unit is packaged safely.
All units will be returned to you free of charge.
Unless otherwise stated, all our equipment is refurbished. All our equipment has been data erased, fully tested, cleaned and upgraded where required. When processing we follow a strict grading policy which is embedded into our asset management database, and is detailed below.
Grade A. Brand new complete ‘open box’ product. These products will be in excellent condition and will be ‘as new’.
Grade B. This grade represents the majority of equipment sold by E-Cycle. You get a fully working product with very minor, barely noticeable scratching or scuffs on casework. AC / power adaptor included. Comes with a 90 day return to base warranty.
Grade C. This grade again will have minor, slightly more noticeable scuffs or scratching on the casework. There may also be minor pressure marks on screen, and / or slight wearing on keyboard keys and mouse pad. These slight defects will be reflected in the price, so if you want a fully functioning unit at a reduced price choose Grade C. Comes with a 90 day return to base warranty.
Grade D. This grade will have more noticeable defects such as noticeable scratches or scuffs to the casework. There may also be more noticeable pressure marks / scratches to screens and screen surround, and noticeable wear to keyboard keys and mouse pad. These defects will again be reflected in the price, so if you want to grab yourself a bargain choose Grade D. Comes with a 90 day return to base warranty.
