7. Inspection, defects and non delivery
The Customer must inspect the Supplies as soon as is reasonably practicable after delivery or, in the case of Services, performance and, except as set out in Warranty section below, the Company shall not be liable for any defect in the Supplies or missing products unless written notice is given to the Company within 9 days of such date. The Company does not write software comprised in the Goods and it is the Customer’s responsibility to check for the presence of computer viruses before the Goods are used.
The quantity of any consignment of Goods, as recorded by the Company upon despatch from the Company’s place of business, shall be conclusive evidence of the quantity received by the Customer on delivery, unless the Customer can provide conclusive evidence to the contrary. The Company will not be liable for any non-delivery of Goods or non-performance of Services unless written notice is given to the Company within 9 days of the date when Goods should have been delivered or the Services performed in the ordinary course of events.
All Supplies have a 1 year Return To Base (RTB) warranty unless stated otherwise. Should Goods be defective within this period LEDEXPERT will repair or replace the Goods with the same or similar specification within a reasonable time. The customer is responsible for charges for return to base and LEDEXPERT is responsible for costs of shipping replacement/repaired Goods to the customer. LEDEXPERT is not responsible for any installation or de-installation costs for Goods. The customer must offer LEDEXPERT all information, courtesy and accommodation needed during this time. The warranty only applies to LEDEXPERT sold items and does not apply to 3rd party products, fitness for any particular purpose, damage caused by yourself, another party or any external force, modifications, repair, incorrect installation or indeed any other action by yourself or another party that renders an alteration or a damage of any kind to the system. Once any attempt is made to investigate the internal components of any part of the item, this results in the warranty becoming void. LEDEXPERT may alter this warranty period and terms, but this will not affect products purchased prior to the change. In respect of 3rd party goods, these will be covered by a manufacturer’s warranty which accompanies the goods themselves. These 3rd party warranties are completely independent from LEDEXPERT, and LEDEXPERT has no responsibility for their inclusion, exclusion, or indeed any other issues arising from these warranties, or lack thereof, should the case be. Goods returned to LEDEXPERT that are either outside of their warranty period, and/or are damaged due to actions that are outside the conditions set down in the warranty may be repaired by technicians at LEDEXPERT, but only subject to express approval and will be charged at LEDEXPERT labour charges, and the customer will be liable for any other expenses arising during the reasonable repair, storage and transportation of the good(s).
Damaged in transit products and missing products must be reported to LEDEXPERT in writing (email will suffice) within 3 days of receipt, otherwise we will not accept return of damaged products.
Prior to returning any Goods to the Company for any reason, the Customer should contact the Company to obtain a Returned Materials Authorisation number (‘RMA’). All Goods are returned at the Customer’s risk and expense and should be undamaged by the Customer and in their original packaging. The Customer is responsible for returning Goods to the Company and for providing proof of delivery of such return.
The Customer should return the Goods to “The Returns Department, Ledexpert, 15 Lower Canal Road, Galway, Co. Galway, H91C6YN” clearly quoting the Returns Material Authorisation Number (RMA), Customer’s account number and order number on the outside of the package.
Any Goods returned after 14 days of cancellation as ‘unwanted’ or ‘incorrectly ordered’ may be accepted at the discretion of the Company but will be subject to a minimum restocking fee of 20% of the invoice value of the Goods or €10, whichever is greater.
Goods returned without a valid RMA number will be returned to the customer untested and unopened. LEDEXPERT endeavors to investigate all returns within a reasonable time but will not be held responsible for delays such as, but not limited to, those outlined in section 13 below.
We will not be held responsible for returns that we can not process, but we will always endeavor to accommodate returns where possible. We reserve the right to charge a re-stocking fee where appropriate, this fee shall not exceed 20% of the goods value.
Services will be provided by LEDEXPERT, or a nominated Service Provider.
The customer is responsible for all telephone and postal charges contacting LEDEXPERT, and your own choice of Product and its suitability for purpose. [All products are fit for purposes described, but it is the customer’s obligation to ensure compatibility between items]. Reasonable courtesy, cooperation, and information must be provided to LEDEXPERT at all times, and failure to do so may result in LEDEXPERT refusal to take and/or complete an order, inquiry or quote. In respect of section 5 above, you the customer warrant that all information supplied by you to us in respect of credit applications is correct and complete, and any charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company.

LEDEXPERT will exercise a time extension for performance in the following situations: strikes, fire, war, acts of terror, shortages in stock, exchange fluctuations, currency shortages, riots, violent disorder, shortage in transportation, governmental or regulatory action, natural disasters, or shortages or delays in deliveries from suppliers or manufacturers or any other event that causes the same result. Either party can terminate the agreement for sale without compensation after two months or any time thereafter.
Disputes arising between LEDEXPERT and the customer shall be sought to be solved amicably and should it fail to be solved in this manner, each of the parties can take the case to the relevant court of law.
