      CONCLUSION OF SALES AND AVAILABILITY OF STOCK

      Registered users may place orders for Goods, which Toolcityonline may accept or reject. Whether or not Toolcityonline accepts an order depends on the availability of Goods, correctness of the information relating to the Goods (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by Toolcityonline for the Goods.

      NOTE: Toolcityonline will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Goods to you and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and Toolcityonline come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from Toolcityonline stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. Toolcityonline will indicate the rejection of your order (by Toolcityonline) by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.

      You acknowledge that stock of all Goods on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice to you. Toolcityonline will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued on the Website. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock. When Goods are no longer available after you have placed an order, Toolcityonline will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of any amount already paid by you for such Goods.

      You may contact us via email at info@toolcityonline.co.za to obtain a full record of your payment. We will also send you email communications about your order and payment. 

      Once you have selected your payment method, you will be directed to a link to a secure site for payment of the applicable purchase price for the Goods. 

      DELIVERY OF GOODS

      Our delivery charges are subject to change at any time, without prior notice to you. You will see the applicable delivery charges in your cart when you check out.

      Where it accepts your order, Toolcityonline will deliver the Goods to you as soon as reasonably possible, but no later than 30 (thirty) days of receipt of your payment (“Delivery Period”). We will notify you if we are unable to deliver the Goods during the Delivery Period. You may then, within 7 (seven) days of receiving such notification elect whether or not to cancel your order for the Goods. If you elect to cancel your order, we will reimburse you for the purchase price.

      Toolcityonline’s obligation to deliver a product to you is fulfilled when we deliver the product to the physical address nominated by you for delivery of the order. Toolcityonline is not responsible for any loss or unauthorised use of a product, after it has delivered the product to the physical address nominated by you.
