College Motors will confirm receipt of your order by sending an automated email to you using the email address supplied when registering with our website; however this will not bring into existence a legally binding agreement between us. All orders placed on the College Motors website are subject to stock availability and to the validation checks described below. Also please refer to the section above regarding incorrect prices. No contract will exist between you and College Motors for the sale of products by us to you until your credit/debit card has been charged.

College Motors will retain details of your order in our database and these details can be made available on request.
We accept payment by most major credit or debit cards. Payment will be debited from your card before the despatch of your purchase.
All credit and charge card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. In addition, in the interests of preventing fraudulent use of credit, debit and charge cards, College Motors will validate the names, addresses and other information supplied during the order process against commercially available records (e.g. Electoral Roll data). We may need to contact you by letter, telephone or email to verify details before we are able to despatch your order or we may be unable to accept your order.
The majority of card issuers cover all the charges that may result from unauthorised use of your credit card or debit cards, but some may limit your liability to £50. If you believe your credit or debit card has been subject to unauthorised use you should contact your card issuer without delay.

This form fully completed should be returned to us with the part and we will forward it on to our supplier where the part will be tested to see if the fault was due to a faulty part or if it was due to faulty fitting. If the fault is due to the part we will refund all costs associated with the purchase including your carriage cost to send the part back, we do not cover consequential costs. Unfortunately if the fault is found to be due to poor fitment the warranty claim will be rejected.
