Making A Purchase
If you choose to purchase from us this process is very straightforward. Take a look around our store and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping basket. When you have finished shopping and are happy with your selection, simply click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.
All our catalogue descriptions and Site information are indicative and any specifications, measurements and technical data (whether relating to performance or otherwise) have been prepared for guidance only and subsequently may change without prior notice. ALM Electrical Solutions Ltd reserves the right to amend technical or clerical errors in any order without notice. Our manufacturers also reserve the right to amend specifications without notice, in order to improve products or where amendment becomes necessary. We shall endeavour to inform the Purchaser of any such amendment or change where necessary.
We request that the buyer shall ensure all details contained within the order are correct prior to submission to the Company. This applies to cut lengths of cable in particular as we are unable to offer a refund on specific lengths if we have supplied them correctly.
Shortly after placing the order you will receive a confirmation email, this is to indicate that we have received your order, it does not indicate that a contract exists between us. A contract will become active upon acceptance of your order and ALM Electrical Solutions preparing and issuing an invoice. We have included this term to protect both ourselves and you the customer in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, either we have inadvertently under-priced goods or indeed over-priced the item, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

We Regret to inform you that the Next Working Day courier delivery option DOES NOT apply to the Scottish Highlands and all UK Islands.
We use Royal Mail and Parcelforce where the weight or volume is high. We try our utmost to hold all items in stock and work tirelessly to dispatch your order the same day if ordered before 3PM.
Orders placed after this time will be delivered the working day after that. If an order is placed on a Friday before the 3PM Cut off point using next day delivery, delivery will occur on the following Monday providing it is not a public holiday. In this case you will take delivery on Tuesday.
We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that you make sure this address is accurate. A daytime telephone number is required by our courier and will be displayed on the address label. The majority of our deliveries will require a signature on delivery.

Please note that Royal Mail Recorded Delivery is not a guaranteed next day service. Items are only classed as lost by Royal Mail after 15 working days.
