About us: Our Price Promise: Notes



 If you can find comparable products and/or services of the same quality, supplied on the same basis and at a price less than ours, we will credit the difference.


Think You’ve Been Given a Better Deal?

We really do believe that we offer unbeatable value for money.

Unfortunately, it is all too easy for less scrupulous companies to give the impression of providing comparable products and/or services of the same quality, that are supplied on the same basis. This is often not the case however.

Learn more about helping to ensure the integrity and competence of your supplier in our guidance sheet on “Fire Trade Cowboys”. Learn the difference between slick sales patter and good effective promises in our guidance sheet on “Slick Language - Spotting the Spin”.

Still Think it’s a Better Deal and Want to Make a Claim?

We strive hard to maintain our unbeatable value for money. However, if you’ve got a valid claim under our price promise we want to know about it and put the situation right!!

Simply run through our checklist below and contact us to provide the documentation requested. Assuming the information checks out we’ll aim to arrange a credit note within five working days.
