A confirmation invoice receipt will be sent to the email address you enter when purchasing your items when payment has been received. This indicates the item(s) purchased from us, and does not represent a binding contract between us exists. This term is solely included to protect us should there have been any mistake made with our pricing and it has been displayed inadvertently under priced or that we can no longer obtain the items(s) for reasons beyond our control.

While every care has been taken to ensure the accuracy of all the information provided on this site, TradeRadiators.com can not accept responsibility for any errors which may occur. Please note that measurements are provided simply as a guide only and may not be exact. Some products are also hand made and may vary slightly in size. Therefore we do not recommend doing any installation work prior to having the goods in your possession. Any plumbing work carried out before having the goods in your possession is undertaken at your own risk and Trade Radiators are not responsible for any errors or ill fitting items which may occur as a result. It is good practise to have the goods in your possession before booking tradesman and carrying out any plumbing, building or electrical work.

Credit Card Security
We take security very seriously at Trade Radiators. Security is probably one of the most significant concerns for both the shopper and the retailer during an online transaction. In reality, an online transaction is probably more secure than a card transaction in a shop or conducted over the telephone, as the information transmitted online is strongly encrypted using complicated logarithm combinations.
We use Paypal, a trusted and well recognised online payment processor, for our online credit card transactions. Paypal uses a combination of both established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data, protecting both the retailers and their shoppers.
PayPal has quickly become a global leader in online payment solutions with more than 164 million accounts worldwide. Available in 190 markets and 17 currencies around the world, PayPal enables global ecommerce by making payments possible across different locations, currencies, and languages.
PayPal has received more than 20 awards for excellence from the internet industry and the business community. PayPal was founded in 1998 and was acquired by eBay in 2002.
All communication between the shopper and Paypal is encrypted to the maximum strength using SSL security. All communication between the retailer and PayPal, including the details of the purchase, are encapsulated using an encrypted and digitally-signed protocol; this uses a combination of standard methods such as PGP, RSA and MD5 to ensure that the information passed is secure and tamper-proof.

Please inspect all goods on arrival for any damages, faults or missing items and notify us of any problems within 3 working days of receipt of your goods. TradeRadiators can not be held responsible for damaged/missing/faulty items reported after this time.
IMPORTANT: If you are unable to check the goods at the actual time of delivery then you MUST tick the "goods unchecked" box on the courier delivery note when signing as if the goods have been signed for as "checked" then we may not be able to replace any damaged items. If you are unable to check the goods when they arrive and there is no obvious "unchecked" option when signing then you must clearly write "unchecked" next to your signature.
In the instance of any damages or faults, we may require photos of the damage or fault, this is to assist in ascertaining what the problem may be and can also be required in any case where transit damage has occurred. If a photo is required it is the responsibility of the customer to provide this.
In the unlikely event of a manufacturing problem with any of our products, please notify us within a 7 day period from receipt of item(s), and we will arrange the defective items to be replaced and collected. Any unwanted returned items, unless otherwise agreed, will have to be shipped back to us within 28 days from date of purchase for a refund. Alternatively, if we are to collect the goods we will have to charge on the courier costs. Returned unwanted items must not have been fitted and must be in their original packaging. Unwanted items which have been installed and/or used are deemed 'second hand' and are strictly non-returnable.
IMPORTANT: Cancellation and Returns Policy for 'Made to Order' products. These products include our specialist Cast Iron radiators, Apollo 'custom colour' radiators, Reina 'custom colour' radiators, DQ 'custom colour' radiators, DQ special finish radiators such as 'lacquer' and 'historic' finishes and any other individual bespoke items made to specific requirements. All of the aforementioned products are custom made to order, bespoke and individually hand made or hand finished to your specific requirements. If you decided to cancel your 'made to order' product for any reason, it is unlikely that we could sell it to another customer at full selling price. We may, therefore, charge a cancellation fee of 20% of the order price. Our usual refund policy does not apply to 'made to order' products, which cannot be returned, refunded or exchanged unless faulty (which is covered by our extensive guarantees).
Any returns MUST be notified to us before being returned. Returned items will NOT be accepted at our registered office, therefore, you must notify us of any intended returns.
If an order is cancelled after it has been despatched then a returns charge will be applied.
