MAIL ORDER SERVICE
OFFICE PRODUCTS CATALOGUE
The Company stocks a wide range of products locally. In addition we, also, offer a ‘mail order’ service based, mainly, on this UK based catalogue.
This means that any items or products not stocked locally can be sourced through this catalogue from the UK, as a ‘special order’. These orders are priced at UK Retail Price, as quoted in the catalogue with some exceptions (see terms and conditions listed below or on inside cover of printed version of catalogue).
If you do not have the printed version of our catalogue you can browse the online version www.officerange.com.
When placing a ‘special order’ you may be required to sign an order form, with its own unique reference number, that will list all the items you are purchasing using the catalogue.
If you are an account customer you will be required to sign an order form and will be invoiced on receipt of the goods. If the value of the goods ordered is greater than the credit limit on your account you may be required to pay a deposit. You will be advised when you place your order.
Retail customers resident in Gibraltar are required to pay a 50% deposit on signing the order form and the balance on receipt of the goods.
Orders received using the Customer Order Form from retail customers not resident in Gibraltar must be paid for in full in advance. Payment for the goods ordered signifies that terms and conditions of service have been read, understood and accepted. Once payment has been received and your order is confirmed you will be given an order reference number.
Signing the order form or paying for the goods in full in advance means that you accept terms and conditions set out below:
The prices of any orders received using codes from our online mail order catalogue www.officerange.com
will be confirmed using the contact details supplied on the customer order form. In general prices are as quoted, however some goods carry a 25% surcharge.
- Minimum order quantities specified apply.
- Orders are normally placed on Wednesdays of each week and ‘subject to availability' in the UK will take 7-10 working days.
- Business Machines and Electronic goods are not supplied using this service.
- Prices quoted are subject to change without notice.
- Out of stock items in the UK will have a delivery date advised.
If you have any queries or would like to discuss your order please contact us and we will assist you in any way we can.
CARTRIDGES, TONERS, RIBBONS, SPECIALIST PAPERS, DATA STORAGE & OTHER COMPUTER CONSUMABLES
Once again, it is impossible and impractical to stock all printer and computer consumables. To supplement the stock that we hold locally we offer a ‘special order’ service for these products.
If you have a specific requirement for a cartridge, toner, ribbon, data tapes, cds, dvds and so on please contact us and we will quote you prices before confirming the order. Payment in advance or alternately signing an order form is confirmation that you accept conditions of sale.
The Company places its orders to its suppliers for these products once a week on Fridays normally and ‘subject to availability’ this service usually takes 7-10 working days.
Remember, please check the confirmation of your order thoroughly before as no returns or refunds are accepted, once order form is signed or payment has been received.
OTHER SPECIAL ORDERS
The Company has an extensive network of suppliers and manufacturers with whom it deals and whilst delivery times from these can vary depending on when we are placing orders, we sometimes can help you source products or do bulk one off deals for you.
For Further information on products, prices and delivery times please contact us.
This service is mainly catalogue based using the OFFICE FURNITURE COLLECTION, OFFICE FURNITURE DESIGN & INTERIORS CATALOGUES and the large Furniture Section in the OFFICE PRODUCTS CATALOGUE. It is available in Gibraltar only for the time being.
The Company has been developing a good reputation for providing this service. We offer a complete package that includes telephone advice, on site visits to discuss customer requirements, measure up and answer queries; free written quotation is then provided if required, order confirmation using our ‘special order’ forms, free delivery of furniture and on site assembly to customer’s requirements and follow up visits to sort out any problems.
Delivery of furniture orders can take up to 4 weeks and if items have to be specially made up it will take longer. No refunds or returns are accepted on furniture and a 50% deposit is usually required to confirm the order.
Prices of Office Furniture are generally as quoted in these catalogues. If you have any queries or would like us to make a visit please contact us.
NEW ACCOUNT ENQUIRIES
Businesses based in Gibraltar interested in opening an account can contact us to request a Credit Account Application Form. Terms and conditions that apply are outlined in detail on this form. Once the form is completed and returned the process of opening an account is straightforward.
When your account has been opened, our Customer Services Representative will arrange a visit to see the person responsible for purchasing stationery. The purpose of this meeting is to leave a set of catalogues, explain how to use these, how the Company works, its policies and structures, and generally answer any questions or queries that you may have.
