None of these terms & conditions shall affect your statutory rights.
A. AGE RESTRICTION

We only accept orders from, and despatch orders to mainland UK.
C. ORDER ACCURACY
It is your responsibility to check that your order is accurate before submitting it to us through our website.
D. PRICING INFORMATION
The price of the goods is the price set out on the website. All prices are shown in Pounds Sterling. The price of the goods is exclusive of VAT unless stated otherwise.
Where the 'In-Store Price' is listed, this refers to the current price in Able to Enable showrooms. The prices shown are only applicable to purchases made via the website. On occasions, the prices payable and promotions offered online may differ from those prices and promotions offered at the same time in Able to Enable showrooms. We are under no obligation to honour any in-store price or promotion that differs from those online. Similarly, Able to Enable showrooms are under no obligation to honour any online price or promotion that differs from the in-store price. Special Offers and promotions advertised in the press or other advertisements could be excluded from our website unless specifically advertised as available online. All offers are subject to availability and while stocks last. This includes all offers advertised via the official Able to Enable social media channels.
Offers cannot be used in conjunction with one another. Where more than one offer is available on the same product only one discount will apply. The offer giving the greatest saving will be applied in the basket. Equally, voucher code offers cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotional offer.
E. Concluding a binding contract
When you place an order with us you will be making an offer to enter into a contract. We will acknowledge your order but we will not accept your offer, and enter into a contract with you, until we dispatch the goods to you and inform you that they have been dispatched. At this point we will have entered into a binding contract and payment will be taken.
F. VAT Relief
Individuals who are chronically sick or disabled and whose products are for personal use, or charities where the products are made available to a disabled person for their own personal/domestic use, may be eligible for VAT Relief.
To qualify for VAT Relief you must ensure that the VAT Relief checkboxes are selected at checkout on our website (if in store a declaration is signed) along with stating the precise medical condition. Assuming you meet the criteria, VAT will not be added (unless a particular product has compulsory VAT).
Orders that are received without ticked exemption or a signed declaration will incur the VAT charge which will be highlighted clearly to you on your receipt.
Completed VAT Relief Declarations by customers are accepted as prima facie evidence by the Company that a valid medical condition exists for exemption under The VAT Act, and no VAT will be charged on the goods purchased. If, at a later date, HMRC disputes the validity of the medical condition, you will be liable to pay the appropriate VAT that should have been applied. Under these circumstances, Able to Enable ltd reserves the right to demand that you pay the VAT amount that is due in relation to your order. It is your responsibility to give accurate information and to not make a false declaration.
G. Accuracy of Information
Every effort has been taken to ensure that the products supplied by Able to Enable correspond as closely as possible to the pictures illustrated on our website and brochure, but they may vary due to the unique characteristics and variation of materials. For example the representation of colours on your web browser may differ slightly from the actual colour of products supplied. Able to Enable are not responsible for any such variations.
If we become aware of any incorrect information, we reserve the right to make any changes to product descriptions/specifications (internal or external) and any other changes where necessary.

If you require medical advice you should consult with your GP or a qualified occupational therapist.
Please check the details of the products shown on promotional publications or offers before ordering as products may differ from catalogue to website to store.
H. POSTAGE & PACKAGING COSTS
If applicable, postage & packaging costs will be added to the cost of your order and will depend on the total cost of the items you order, the size & weight of the items and where delivery options are provided, the option you choose. For up to date pricing please see our delivery information page.
For website orders, the postage & packaging charge you will pay will be displayed on screen before you confirm your order to us. Where multiple items are included in one order, we may dispatch items separately, in which case you will only be charged one postage and packaging charge unless we state otherwise before you confirm your order.
I. PRE ORDERS
Occasionally we may make goods or services available for pre-order. If you place a pre-order, we will take payment. If we are, for any reason, unable to supply the order to you, for example, if our supplier is unable to supply us or if the goods/services are not suitable for you, we will notify you and offer you an alternative. If the alternative is not acceptable then we will refund the full amount paid.

N. CANCELLATION RIGHTS
If you wish to cancel your order before we’ve despatched it, please call 01904 690666 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request cancellation. We try to dispatch orders as quickly as we can so if you decide to cancel your order please do so as soon as possible.
Please note once we have despatched an item(s) to you, the item cannot be cancelled and our Returns Policy comes into effect.
Consumers have the right to cancel orders for goods or services that have been placed on ableto.co.uk for up to 14 calender days after the date on which the goods are delivered (certain exceptions apply). This is called the 'cooling off period'. After this period we cannot accept any returns.
You also have rights in respect of items that are damaged on receipt or faulty. Details of these rights and how to exercise these rights are set out in our Returns Policy.
This right does not apply to certain items such as:
- Any appliance that is made from materials that may be distorted if worn
- Any item which requires us to provide a service before approving the item for supply - provided that we have begun to provide the service with your agreement.
- Any item that is made or customised to order.
- Unfortunately we cannot accept returns on items that have been specially adapted to suit your requirements, or for products that can void Health & Safety regulations if used e.g. incontinence, bathroom or toilet products. A refund can only be given if the product(s) arrives faulty, damaged or incorrect. To exercise your cancellation right, you should follow the instructions in 'How to Return Items' by viewing our Returns Policy.
You have a legal responsibility to keep the items in reasonable condition and in your possession until they are returned to us. This includes, for example, keeping any hygiene seals, clear plastic wrappings and packaging in place.
Please note, Able to Enable Partners have their own terms of business and procedures for exercising cancellation rights. If you purchase an item or service from a Able to Enable Partner, you should check your rights before placing your order.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR WEBSITE ORDERS
Your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations are to have the opportunity to inspect items you receive from us. Unless it is necessary to remove any hygiene seal or wrapping to inspect or assess an item, removal of such packaging shall be deemed to constitute a failure on your part to keep the items in reasonable condition and you will be in breach of your legal obligations. We are entitled to exercise our statutory rights in recovering any losses we incur in this respect.
Our maximum liability for our failure to fulfil an order that we are legally bound to fulfil will be limited to the price that you paid for that order.
HEALTH AND SAFETY NOTICE
Not all medical products are suitable for all medical ailments and, occasionally, their use may interfere with any treatment you are receiving or aggravate a condition. You should check with your GP or occupational therapist before using any medical product.
Electrical products sold by us on this website and in our stores are designed for use in the UK and, if fitted with a plug, it will be a UK plug. They may not be suitable for use in other countries and you should check with the manufacturer before using them outside the UK.
WITH ALL PRODUCTS YOU SHOULD READ THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH THE PACKAGING CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE PRODUCT AND BE SURE TO OBSERVE ANY SPECIFIC WARNINGS GIVEN BY THE MANUFACTURER.
P. Warranty / Guarantee
Manufacturer warranties, Able to Enable warranties or third party warranties do not affect your consumer rights.
The majority of our new products are guaranteed for twelve months by the manufacturer. Our warranty does not cover items used outside of the UK mainland and does not include the cost of the hire of a replacement product(s).
Our warranties provide coverage only if you maintain or use the product as directed. For example, our warranty covers only personal users - as opposed to business uses - of the product. If there are multiple users of the product then we would not cover any product faults under warranty.
Please note there are the following general warranty exclusions: Parts which need adjustment, re-setting, replacement or repair due to abuse, fair wear & tear or to suit the individual needs of the user i.e. Tyres, lap belts, bulbs, plastic shrouds and upholstery (damaged after delivery), motor brushes, normal battery degradation, wheelchair / rollator brake adjustments, circuit breaker resetting, resetting user-induced problems or maintenance requirements caused by carelessness, use of the product for a purpose for which it has not been designed, or accidental damage such as flat batteries or punctures. Unfortunately if no fault is found with the equipment on an engineers’ visit under warranty the customer will pay for the call out cost which is £60.00 (excluding vat).
Telephone assistance is provided free of charge to try and resolve any user error or other issues to get you going again. Our aim is to avoid our customers having to pay the call out fee if there is not fault present.
Defective items – Within the warranty period, any item found to be defective due to a manufacturing problem, will be repaired or replaced free of charge.
Able to Enable has business relationships with a number of third parties and some of the goods and services available on or through this website are provided by those third parties.

Voucher codes can only be used for purchases made on our website. Orders placed over the telephone or in store are not eligible for these offers and promotions.
Only one promotional code can be applied on each individual order.
Promotional codes are only available for eligible orders placed during the period which the promotion has been determined to run to. Any orders falling outside of this period will not be eligible for the promotion.
