Until an Order is made, your Reservation may be cancelled at any time by either party, in which case you will receive a full refund of your reservation payment. No compensation will be paid to the other party for any disappointment suffered or consequential losses if either party cancels this reservation at any time.

5. Your Details
GENERAL TERMS & CONDITIONS
If you live outside the UK please be aware that our insurance requires us to only sell to UK based residents so we will be unable to supply to you.
By purchasing from DryCycle Ltd. it is assumed that the customer agrees to all terms and conditions. If you do not please either do not order, or contact us in writing before any attempt to collect or deliver the goods occurs in order to cancel your order for a full refund.
1.1 There is no charge for collection.
1.2 Time shall not be of the essence in this contract. We always use our best endeavours to make products available for collection within the ‘Delivery within approximately’ timeframe (shown on your copy of the order confirmation). In the unlikely event that something delays your collection, we will contact you to reorganise your collection date within a reasonable period of time.
1.3 Collection can be made from our Bedford site:
Factory 1, Caxton Road
1.4 You will need to inspect the goods at the time of collection for any damage or imperfections / defects. A checklist will be carried out with the customer at the time of delivery a copy of that checklist is available at www.DryCycle.co.uk/Delivery-checklist. Please be aware that If you reject a DryCycle vehicle at the time of collection we will refund you in full and cancel the order we will not offer you a replacement DryCycle vehicle.
1.5 Please tell us if you wish to ride your DryCycle home and we will charge the batteries prior to collection.
1.6 If you choose to collect it in a vehicle you will need a suitably sized vehicle (eg. A 3.5 ton high top van or larger – DryCycle dimensions can be found on our web-site) with a tail lift. The tail lift is necessary to avoid damaging the vehicle whilst loading it as it cannot be lifted with a forklift without damaging it and at approx. 100kg it is an awkward item to try to lift by hand.
1.7 Once goods are collected by you or your agent they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss damage or destruction.
2. Delivery – DryCycle Vehicles
2.1 We will deliver DryCycles within a 100 mile radius of our factory in Bedford. If you live outside this radius but still within the United Kingdom you can purchase a DryCycle from us, but you will need to organise collection of it.
2.2 Kerbside Delivery only.
2.2 Time shall not be of the essence in this contract. We always use our best endeavours to deliver within the ‘Delivery within approximately’ timeframe (shown on your copy of the order confirmation). In the unlikely event that something delays your delivery, we will contact you to reorganise your delivery date within a reasonable period of time.
2.3 We will always contact you to agree a delivery date with you prior to us actually delivering. If you have any questions about your delivery date, please ring our dispatch team on 01234 224493.
2.4 We operate throughout England and Wales over large areas so we cannot give timed deliveries. Deliveries can occur at any time between 8:00am and 7:00pm on the day of delivery.
2.5 Please ensure that someone with the authority to accept the goods (you or your agent) is available all day on the day of delivery. Should we arrive and find that no-one is present to accept the goods we will leave and an attempted delivery charge will apply, see term 3.
2.6 You must advise us if there are access difficulties, we generally deliver with a Tesla and Trailer to keep our carbon footprint low for those deliveries, though sometimes other vehicles may be used if a Tesla is not available at the time. We need an access route/road capable of taking this size of vehicle. If we try to deliver, using the normal vehicle, and cannot do so due to foreseeable problems such as access restrictions, width of road etc. then the goods will be returned to our premises and an attempted delivery charge will apply, see term 3, unless you have given us prior written notice that this size of vehicle will not be capable of delivering to your site.
2.7 You will need to inspect the goods at the time of delivery for any damage or imperfections. We will conduct a visual checklist of the DryCycle with you when the vehicle is being delivered and will ask that you check that everything about the vehicle which is defined by the checklist is present and correct to your satisfaction and then sign to that effect, or refuse delivery if the vehicle does not meet your expectations. A copy of that checklist is available at www.DryCycle.co.uk/Delivery-checklist. Please be aware that if you reject a DryCycle vehicle at the time of delivery we will bring the goods back to our factory and refund you, we will not offer you a replacement DryCycle vehicle.
2.8 If items are missing this must be noted on the delivery note at the point of delivery.
2.9 Our Drivers are not authorised to accept changes to our Delivery Notes or Terms & Conditions.
2.10 Once goods are delivered to you or your agent they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss damage or destruction.
3. Additional Costs
3.1 If we attempt a delivery and are unable to do so due to a breach of our delivery terms by the customer then we will make a charge for that attempted delivery which is payable prior to any re-delivery. This will represent the true cost of that delivery and will be charged as outlined below:
Basic Cost of £400, plus £2.50 per mile (round trip).
In the unlikely event that we attempted to deliver to you by courier then we will charge you the courier’s cost-plus packaging.
3.2 If there are any additional costs associated with any re-delivery due to a change being required to our normal method of delivery as outlined in our delivery terms for the redelivery then this charge will also be given to the customer and payable before such redelivery takes place.
4. General Information
4.1 Each DryCycle is individually made and finished by hand (as opposed to cars which are typically made by robots) so whilst every care will have been taken whilst making each vehicle there are likely to be uneven panel gaps and other misalignments similar to those shown in photos/videos on our website of vehicles we have already built. If you find fault with these or other issues which cannot be easily rectified during the inspection at the time of delivery/collection then we will bring the vehicle back to our factory and will refund you.
5.1 Payment must be made in full in cleared funds at least 2 working days before delivery/collection.
5.2 If you are paying with a Credit/Debit card it will need to be either; registered to the delivery address; or, have passed a 3D secure check (sometimes known as 'verified by Visa' or similar - only possible with online payments); or verified in person by Chip and Pin.
5.3 You can also pay by bank transfer, remotely, at least 2 working days before delivery/collection.
5.4 Cheques, Bankers Draft or Printed Building Society Cheques are not accepted as cleared funds (as they can be fraudulent) and must be received by us a minimum of 15 working days before delivery/collection.

6.1 The customer has the right to cancel the order. The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you or your agent acquires physical possession of the last good.
6.2 Any notification of cancellation must be made in a clear statement in writing, either by post to Customer Services, DryCycle Ltd, Dunster House, Factory 1, Caxton Road, Bedford, MK41 0LF, or email to CS@DryCycle.co.uk. In case of dispute it is the customer’s responsibility to show when/if the contract was cancelled.
6.3 The goods must be returned no later than 14 days after the day on which cancellation is made.
6.4 The goods should be returned in their original condition as at the time of delivery other than handling necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
6.5 Returned goods will be inspected and refunds will take place within 14 days after the items have been returned.
6.6 Refunds may be subject to a deduction up to the contract price covering any reasonable costs incurred by the Company, such as: attempted delivery costs in the case of any failed delivery attempts which were the fault of the customer, increased delivery costs if you have chosen something other than our least expensive delivery service, cost of items not returned in original condition other than handling necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods (e.g. the goods have been modified, become weathered or damaged).
6.7 If any of the goods form a commercial unit, then the customer cannot reject or cancel the order for some of those goods without also rejecting or cancelling the order for the rest of them. A unit is a ‘commercial unit’ if division of the unit would materially impair the value of the goods or the character of the unit.
6.8 If the customer cancels whilst the goods are being actively delivered by one of our delivery vehicles then the Company will be able to bring back those goods being delivered at that time on the same vehicle and will do so without deduction from the refund for that delivery/collection.
6.9 If the customer cancels any goods after they have been delivered then the customer will make suitable arrangements to return such Goods at the customer’s own cost and risk or you can contact us to arrange collection of the goods if you are within our delivery radius of 100 miles from our Bedford factory, this will be chargeable and the rates will be £500 for DryCycle vehicles, or courier charges for smaller items. If our normal collection methods can’t be used for any reason then the cost to the customer may vary, and may be up to the total contract price. Your statutory rights are not affected.
7. Rectifying Defects
7.1 We will supply goods that are in conformity with the contract. However should any defect occur within a reasonable period after delivery please ensure the invoiced cusomter (named person on order) contacts us in writing, either by post to: Customer Services, DryCycle Ltd, Dunster House, Factory 1, Caxton Road, Bedford, MK41 0LF, or email to CS@DryCycle.co.uk. Please include either your order number or your postcode so we are able to locate you on our system.
7.2 Please note that any problems that occur due to the natural properties of the materials are not defects.
7.3 We will request clear photos to illustrate the reported defect and its cause so that we can determine the means to rectify it prior to any rectification. This may involve taking photos of parts of your product which you believe are unconnected to the defect but which may nevertheless be the cause of it.
7.4 If a defect occurs which is the fault of the Company, the Company will give you appropriate options which may include replacement, repair or partial refund.
7.5 Where the defect is deemed to be the customer’s fault for any reason e.g. modifications, poor maintenance, use of defective materials supplied by the customer or misuse of the product, any rectification will be chargeable to the customer.
