4. Warranties and Returns

4.1 All warranties provided with equipment are operated and controlled by the manufacturer or master UK distributor, not CS Catering Equipment Ltd. Responsibility for these warranties is held with the manufacturer or master UK distributor, and is only applicable to mainland UK. Please note that certain perishable items will not be covered under warranty such as bulbs, door seals and elements. If you are unsure at any point what is covered and what is not covered by warranty please contact our sales office on 01977 687 665 (this does not affect your statutory rights).

4.2 Any products incorrectly ordered by the customer or goods that a Customer wishes to return/cancel will incur an industry standard restocking/cancellation charge. This constitutes a minimum of 5% of the original order value to cover card handling costs and all associated administration costs. However, this figure could be up to 25% of order value subject to the status of the order, the goods themselves, and any restocking fees that are charged to us by our supplier or the manufacturer. The Customer is also liable for the cost of the return carriage. Goods can only be returned if unused and in the original packaging. If any goods are received in error this must be reported to us within 48 hours to allow us to deal with this effectively. Any issues reported after this time will not be able to be corrected and may be liable for extra charges.

CS Catering Equipment Ltd. are suppliers of commercial equipment and services to commercial customers and all sales are considered a business to business contract. Therefore we are not obligated to offer refunds or accept returns even if items are unused. If we chose to do so this will be at the discretion of CS Catering Equipment Ltd. In this instance we will apply and charge a restock fee that we deem reasonable.

4.3 Notification of any goods that need to be returned or any damages must be reported within the first 24 hours after delivery. Damaged items that were not signed for as damaged will not be eligible for return. Please check all deliveries thoroughly before signing for them to make sure all products are satisfactory before accepting delivery.

4.4 Any special order items cannot be cancelled or returned once an order is placed. All stainless steel fabricated items are made to order and are therefore non-returnable.

4.5 All items carry a minimum of one-year parts only warranty unless otherwise stated, this warranty where applicable is the manufacturer’s warranty.

4.6 All commercial gas appliances must be installed by a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer. Failure to do so will void product warranty.
