Trading Terms and Conditions


OVERSEAS PARCELS including Southern Ireland.

Since Brexit, please be aware that if you are in Europe and you are VAT exempt, YOU will have to pay custom charges/duties before an attempted delivery of your parcel.

BEFORE the parcel is attempted delivery and before customs send you the payment details, they must first receive your PID (personal identification number if you are a private individual) or if you are a business, your EORI number AND your VAT number AND your B2B French VAT number if applicable – please check when ordering what information you must provide.

It is REALLY important that you provide ALL the information to us. We try our best to check all orders before they are dispatched to ensure they have the correct information on them. If we think something is missing, then we will email you to request it before we dispatch your order. However our couriers do change their guidelines often without informing us therefore we may need to request other information after your parcel has already been dispatched. You will need to provide the information ASAP to avoid a return.

Any orders being dispatched to Germany, will receive a separate email BEFORE the payment email link called ‘power of attorney’ This MUST be accepted. You should then receive a separate email to pay your duties and fees. These emails are only valid for 12 hours.

Any orders being dispatched with our courier’s road that travel through France, must also have a French B2B VAT number, otherwise it cannot travel through France and the parcel will be returned.

Please make sure your EMAIL ADDRESS and MOBILE NUMBER are correct on your order as this is how you will be contacted to pay once customs have checked your details. This is also how we will contact you.

All email links for an overseas customs payment are usually only valid for 24 hours max – so please be prompt in paying the fees. The email may go to your Junk/Spam email file, so once you have your tracking details with our couriers, it is important to keep an eye on your parcel and emails.

IF any of your details (including EORI, PID, VAT or French B2B numbers, address, phone number or email address etc.) are wrong or missing then your parcel WILL automatically be returned to us.

It is really important that you keep a very close eye on your emails (and your junk/spam email folder) as soon as you know your parcel has been dispatched from our warehouse, right up until you receive it.

ANY parcels returned to us where the customs/duties have not been paid, the power of attorney hasn’t been accepted, if any numbers required from customs (VAT, EORI, PID, French B2B VAT number etc are missing or are wrong, If any of your details/address is wrong or missing or the parcel is returned to us for any other reason, then your order will be refunded MINUS the original carriage charge AND minus a return to sender fee – Please note: If you paid with a BACS transfer, a currency conversion fee and bank transfer fee may also be deducted for your final total. If you want us to resend the parcel after it has been returned, you will be required to pay for your shipping again PLUS the return fee that we get charged.

Northern Ireland Orders:

Currently, As far as we are aware. Northern Ireland only requires a TSS code (Trading Support Service Code) if you are a company registered and trading in Northern Ireland. We will request this from you before we dispatch your order if you haven’t already provided it.

Please note our TSS, EORI and UK VAT numbers are all present on our delivery notes and invoices.

1. Prices are valid at the time of placing the order, but are subject to change without notice. Although we make every effort to ensure advertised prices are correct, there may be occasions where an incorrect price is advertised. Under these circumstances we are not obliged to supply goods at the advertised price where there is an error in any said price.

2. Delivery of goods that are in stock will usually be despatched the next working day. UK mainland deliveries are typically 3 working days, other destinations will vary. Items out of stock will be placed on back order and supplied when available unless otherwise stated when placing an order. Customers will be advised of any delay that may affect their order. Any item on back order, can be cancelled at any time, with the exception of items that have been specially ordered or built which cannot be cancelled without our prior agreement.

For damaged items, please include photos of the item(s) as well as photos of the packaging and the label on the parcel which includes your address details and the tracking number. Please keep all packaging until we state otherwise as the couriers sometimes ask for additional photos. Without the photos, the claim can be rejected.

Order processing
9. Orders placed on the website are processed with as little delay as reasonably possible. For this reason, we cannot guarantee that further instructions from customers will/can be acted upon. We advise any customer who is unsure of the product(s) they intend on ordering, to contact us prior to placing an order so a member of our sales team may assist.

Please Note: Pro-Forma invoices.
We can set up proforma invoices for customers to pay with a BACS payment. (or a card payment over the phone if the card is registered in the UK) however it is the customers responsibility to check ALL the details are correct on the proforma before they make a payment.

Any errors, misprinted information, change of goods or change in delivery/billing address, phone number etc. must be made to us by the customer via email or a phone call BEFORE the payment has been made.

We will then update the proforma invoice, to ensure the details are correct, and will resend the updated proforma for the customer to check again. If everything is correct then payment can be made.

Once we have received a payment, we accept that to mean all the details are correct and we have the authority to go ahead to process your order.

We will send you your VAT invoice (non-VAT invoice if exempt) to acknowledge the payment has been received and you know that we are now processing your order.

An email dispatch confirmation will be sent once your order has been dispatched with the relevant postage/tracking details.

Should we receive correspondence from the customer AFTER payment has been made, the invoice has been sent, after items have been dispatched or if the order has been delivered to the delivery address stating any discrepancies in the order (whether this is an error with the products ordered, or the details we have been given), whilst we will try our best to resolve such issues, it isn’t always possible as once items have been dispatched it is out of our hands and such changes cannot always be made.

On some occasions, we may be able to rectify certain issues however if we receive extra charges to rectify these issues then these will be the customers’ responsibility to pay.

Private Water Supplies

10. We endeavour to give our best possible suggestions for products and treatment but cannot accept responsibility for system performance guarantees as variations in the incoming water quality and other site conditions are beyond our reasonable control. Equipment provided is on a supply only basis, unless otherwise agreed in writing, and we strongly recommend that such equipment be installed by a qualified installer. We accept no liability for poor installation, commissioning and on-going maintenance of the equipment.

Please note that we do not accept responsibility for UV bulbs. UV bulbs do not have any warranty. This is because of site conditions. Any leaks from the sleeve, or condensation on the bulb will cause the bulb to blow. Unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility for this. It is the customer/installers responsibility to check the conditions are right for the UV bulbs.

11. Any details held will be used only by Wrekin Water Filtration Ltd and the Courier(s) we use. Data will not be passed on to any other parties.
Please note, if your order goes direct from our factory on our behalf, we have to pass on your name, address, phone number and email address so that they can process your order. We have been assured that your phone number and email address is solely for the courier. I have also been assured that none of the suppliers I use pass any data onto 3rd parties.

What you will receive from us and our couriers.
As standard, you will receive your order confirmation, VAT/NON-VAT invoice, order dispatch confirmation and order updates from the courier via email.
You may receive order updates from the courier via text messages if you provide a mobile number at time of order.

If there are any issues/questions regarding your order, then we will contact you via email or telephone. This is so we can resolve things quickly and process your order in a timely manner.

If there are lead times for the products you have ordered, we will keep you updated via email.

If you purchase consumables, you will receive an email reminder from us when your consumables are ready to be changed. Occasionally we may send you details of special offers, promotions or new price lists.

If you would rather not be part of any of these direct mailings, please state this when ordering or reply back to any email and we will remove you from our system.
