Can I make a price match offer?

Yes you can.

We realize that in today's market place deals are forever changing. We may miss the odd price change. If you believe that there is a better deal on the same product with the same conditions, do not hesitate to submit your price match offer.

Are your products second hand or factory seconds?

NO, All products on our web site or in our showrooms are brand new with full Manufacturer's warranty.

From time to time we may have some scratch and dented models which wil be sold at a reduced price. These will be clearly labelled and will be only availale in the local warehouse delivery area or by Customer pickup from that local warehouse only.

What is the procedure for claiming warranty?

The warranty on our products is carried by the Manufacturer and claims in the first instance should be referred to the Manufacturer's service department, this is the best method to settle on a suitable time for the serviceman to visit your home. The contact details should be in the warranty information booklet that comes with your appliance, however for your convenience please find a list of Manuafacturers and their service numbers below.

The service department will require to sight your tax invoice to prove date of purchase. If you have misplaced your tax invoice then a replacement can be retrieved from our records by contacting us via phone or by emailing requesting a replacement invoice, please include enough details for us to select the correct invoice for you.

Should you experience problems in obtaining satisfactory service from the Manufacturer, please do not hesitate to contact our own Customer Service staff.

What is MasterCard® SecureCode™

Online security is a priority for MasterCard. MasterCard SecureCode enhances the security already in place on your card with a secret code that protects against unauthorised use when shopping online at participating merchants.

Accepted all over the web
More than 575,000 online retailers support transactions made with MasterCard SecureCode. Look for the logo when providing your payment information. It's the best way to pay on the internet.

MasterCard SecureCode delivers added protection for your card when you shop online.

Once you've registered and created your own private MasterCard SecureCode, you will be automatically prompted by your card issuer to type in your MasterCard SecureCode each time you make a purchase at participating online stores/retailers. Then your MasterCard SecureCode will be quickly confirmed by your card issuer to complete your purchase. Your MasterCard SecureCode will never be shared with the store/retailer and using it is as easy as entering your PIN at an ATM.

Activate your Card: Through the bank that issued your Credit card, set up your verification method and activate your card in just a few minutes. Your bank may allow you to choose between setting a password or using a code sent via text message to your mobile phone.

What is Verified by Visa?

Verified by Visa provides added security to ensure that only you can use your Visa card to make purchases online. It’s easy to activate for your existing card, and it’s free.

How it works
