2. PLACING AN ORDER WITH BOXEDTECH LTD – PURCHASE FULFILMENT
All sales will be commenced directly through the BoxedTech.co.uk and BoxedTech.com website; these sites are the only valid location where authorised sales by BoxedTech Ltd will be commenced, and the goods and services provided by BoxedTech Ltd will be shown only on these websites.
• BoxedTech.co.uk and BoxedTech.com will advertise products on the aforementioned web page; products will contain an accurate description of the goods being sold as per the manufacturers standard specifications. BoxedTech will not be accountable for human error concerning product information but will ensure that any problems caused as a result of this will be corrected and that the customer is duly refunded if payment has already been taken. Product images are for illustrative purposes only and may differ from the actual Product you receive.
• BoxedTech reserves the right to alter stock availability at any point during the order process; Customers would be contacted should this affect their order.
• By placing an order with BoxedTech, you are indicating that you have read and agreed to the website’s terms and conditions and have the capacity and authorisation to make said order.
• All customers of BoxedTech will be required to make an account to proceed with a purchase of goods from our website.
• All orders placed will be subject to the current rate of UK VAT.
• If you would like to have your item delivered to an address which is not registered to the credit/debit card our security team will contact you. In some cases, we will require further security information and identification to be provided by the customer who will need to email the information necessary to our security team.
BoxedTech will at times request further information to validate a purchase; this information will be assessed by our expert security team and then destroyed.
BoxedTech is governed by its discretion and reserves the right to decline an order at any point during the order process.
BoxedTech will always strive to meet your delivery requirements; we use a wide range of courier services and can deliver to most UK locations. All delivery times are stated in working days and do note that in the case of delivery a working day is classed as any day other than weekends or public holidays. Any purchase made upon a non-working day will only be processed upon the next available working day. For example. A next working day (the UK only) delivery order placed on a Saturday would be processed on the following Monday for delivery on Tuesday.
3.1. Delivery address
Items are sent to the stated delivery address provided by the customer online. Should the delivery address differ from the invoice address, the Customer is to provide both addresses when placing the order; The parcel will be shipped to the delivery address.
3.2. Failed Delivery Attempts
In the event of a failed delivery, depending on the circumstances and the carrier’s policy, the Customer may receive a note of passage, i.e., “calling card” in his/her mailbox. If the courier has left a reminder, the Customer will need to call the carrier to arrange a new delivery date. If the Customer does not contact the courier service the item will automatically be attempted delivery the following working day for up to and sometimes surpassing two delivery attempts except Royal Mail packages – these items will require collection after the initial delivery attempt.
It also might occur that the Customer does not find a calling card. In this case, it is the Customer’s responsibility to track his/her orders online with the provided tracking information upon the carrier’s website, to view package status information and inform either the courier or BoxedTech customer services of any issues as soon as possible. Should the package not be re-attempted, collected or delivered by the customer the package may be returned to BoxedTech where a redelivery fee will be applicable.
3.3. Late Delivery
At times a parcel may not be delivered within the expected time allotment or stated delivery time frame given by the carrier or BoxedTech. Should delays extend too long we would expect the Customer to contact BoxedTech to open an inquiry to establish the whereabouts of the parcel, i.e., the parcel may be lost/stolen/missing.
3.4. Loss of the parcel
Should such a situation arise, BoxedTech is compelled to respect the time-frames set by the carriers concerning declaring the loss of the package, processing a claim with the courier and then refunding the shipment or replacing the item for the customer. The Customer is also bound to the same time-frames.
For BoxedTech to officially declare a parcel lost, the Customer has two days to report the loss of a parcel in the UK or starting from the date he or she received the shipment confirmation e-mail. Beyond this period, no claim will be accepted.
Should the parcel be declared as lost within the above mentioned time, BoxedTech will attend to file a claim with the carrier and may ask the Customer for additional documents to complete the composition of the file’s content. The Customer is required to send requested information within three working days.
The carrier gives the final response related to claims within a one to three-week period. The nature of the response can be one of two types: either the parcel is found and then delivered to the Customer, or the parcel is declared as lost by the carrier and BoxedTech informs the Customer. Should the delivery be declared lost by the carrier, and following the customer’s wishes, BoxedTech can make a second shipment of the order or proceed by fully refunding the Customer for the total amount paid.
In the event of loss, BoxedTech will send the customer a (P101) Non-Receipt Declaration form, which will be used as part of the investigation process. This form will be a declaration of non-receipt and should further investigation prove that the item has been delivered successfully to the correct location then this will be used as part of a legal case. This may or may not involve a police investigation and will not be limited to the purchaser of the goods but also the individual/individuals who signed/received the goods at the specified delivery location. Please contact our customer service team to inquire further about this form in the event of any lost goods. Timeframes for completion and replacement will vary on a case to case basis.
3.5. Receipt of the parcel
When the items are delivered to the Customer, you will be asked to sign for the goods as an acknowledgement of receipt. If a parcel comes partly or entirely damaged, the Customer’s reservations must be written on the delivery note in the presence of the carrier.
Should no reservation be mentioned, the parcel is considered as delivered in good condition and BoxedTech will accept no subsequent claims or complaints. Should the customer want to preserve recourse against the courier, he/she must put in a claim in writing to the courier within three days (public holidays excluded) following the day of delivery. This claim must be sent by registered letter with a form for acknowledgement of receipt.
Should there be any issues with the delivery relating to contents, damaged, missing or otherwise, the Customer should contact BoxedTech within 48 hours of the time of delivery, to ensure the legitimacy of this claim, otherwise BoxedTech would be unable to take any further action.
4. BOXEDTECH REFUND AND EXCHANGE POLICY
We hope that you will be happy with any purchase you make from BoxedTech. However we understand that at times items may not be as expected and should you wish to return an item, you may do so within the timescales and conditions outlined below.
4.1. Distance Selling Regulations
All online purchases are subject to distance selling regulations; this allows Customers to purchase an item from our website and then return the item should it not be required and not as expected, for a full refund within 14 Calendar days of receipt. To enable this, we require the item to be returned with a proof of purchase, in a resalable ‘as new’ condition and accordance with the BoxedTech returns policy. If you are returning a product, you must confirm your order number or supply proof of purchase. If we are unable to verify your proof of purchase, we regret that we will be unable to issue a refund or exchange. Your statutory rights are unaffected. If you choose to return an item, please do take care of it while it is in your possession. Please return your unused product; with the original packaging, accessories and manuals. Promotional bundles must be returned in their entirety for this to be refunded.
Distance Selling Regulations specifically excludes the following:
- Opened entertainment products (computer software, movies, music, video games, memory cards and USBs) as these will be deemed used;
- Products purchased with a subscription contract (unless purchased at a distance, where you must inform us of your intent to return within 14 Calendar days)
- Mobile top-up cards;
- Items ordered especially for you (i.e. from the manufacturer)
- Any items that we have had to modify to fit in with your installation requirements (e.g. items that have had holes drilled through them).
If services are provided with your agreement before the end of this 14 Calendar day cancellation period, you lose your cancellation rights from the moment that the services are provided to you.
If you return a used item, we reserve the right to refuse a refund or reduce the amount of money refunded for goods returned which show evidence of use beyond the handling necessary to see whether the goods are as expected.
For all goods purchased online and returned within 14 Calendar days, we would expect all goods to be returned in a resaleable ‘as new’ condition and the goods must not have been used. This would require product seals, packaging and contents to be in-tact. We do understand that box seals would need to be broken to assess the item however we would request that due care and attention is taken not to damage the package when the seals are removed. The extent to which a customer can handle the goods is the same as it would be if you were assessing them in a shop.
A refund of all monies received, including the outbound delivery cost, within 14 days of cancellation of the services contract, or within 14 days of receiving goods back will be processed as standard. If you can provide proof of return before you receive the goods back, you should receive a refund within 14 days of sending that proof.
In the case of unwanted goods, BoxedTech will not cover the cost of the postage fee incurred to return the goods to us.
BoxedTech currently may offer a free delivery service, and this would be classed as our basic rate, please note that any difference in cost between this and your original chosen delivery fee will not be returned.
In the case of faulty goods or incorrect goods returned within 14 days, If you choose to have the goods delivered by more expensive means than the cheapest standard delivery option offered/available, you will not receive a refund of the full outbound delivery cost, but only the cost of the standard delivery option which could have been chosen.
RETURN DELIVERY FEES: If the Customer decides to return their parcel by their means, the refund of the expenses will not exceed the minimum delivery charge required by a trusted parcel service to return the item to us. Any service used above and beyond the standard rate will not be covered under this policy. All postage refunds must be agreed with BoxedTech Customer Service, in writing, before return.
Where goods received are faulty or not fit for purpose, or as described, customers will have different rights which are covered by the Return under warranty policies.

4.2. Returns Policy within 14 calendar days from purchase

7. WASTE ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS (WEEE) DIRECTIVE
The WEEE Directive is UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of electrical waste equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Much of the UK’s WEE ends up in a landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.
BoxedTech is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us. For example, if a customer purchased a new Mobile Phone from us, we would accept their old Mobile Phone and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 30 days of purchasing their new item. Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below: Goods are marked with this symbol to indicate that they were produced after 13th August 2005 and should be disposed of separately from regular household waste so that they can be recycled.
BoxedTech reserve the right to make any amendment’s or changes to the BoxedTech.co and BoxedTech.co.uk terms and conditions of sale, the items represented on our website, policies or any aspect of our service.
