These are legally binding agreements between you and VanMonster.com.

Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. Please review our privacy policy, which also governs your visit to VanMonster.com, to understand our practices.

Access to VanMonster.com

We will do our utmost to ensure that availability of the website will be uninterrupted and that transmissions will be error-free. However, due to the nature of the Internet, this cannot be guaranteed. Also, your access to the website may also be occasionally suspended or restricted to allow for repairs, maintenance, or the introduction of new facilities or services. We will make best effort to limit the frequency and duration of any such suspension or restriction.

Your Conduct

You acknowledge and agree not to use the website in any way that causes, or is likely to cause, the website or access to it to be interrupted, damaged or impaired in any way; to send, use, reuse, disseminate or copy any material that is illegal, offensive, abusive, indecent, defamatory, obscene or menacing; or in breach of copyright, trademark, confidence, privacy or any other right; or is injurious to third parties; or objectionable; or which consists of or contains software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings or any "spam"; to cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety. You understand and agree that you, and not VanMonster.com, are responsible for all electronic communications and content sent from your computer to us and you must use the website for lawful purposes only. You acknowledge and agree not to use the website for fraudulent purposes, or in connection with a criminal offence or other unlawful activity.

Placing your Order and Reserving a Vehicle

The information contained in our listing descriptions is for information purposes only. VanMonster.com makes every effort to provide listing descriptions that are accurate, correct and objective and, that the descriptions fairly and adequately depict the type, condition and image of vehicles at the time of sale. VanMonster.com welcomes you to visit our premises to physically see, inspect, and test drive the vehicle that you are considering for purchase. 

Please note that the Reservation Acknowledgment sent via email or communicated in any other form is simply an acknowledgement that your order has been received by VanMonster.com; it does not indicate that we have accepted your order and does not form a binding contract. Acceptance of your order will take place only when we release the vehicle to you in accordance with our vehicle handover process.

Until we handover the vehicle no contract will have been formed between you and us. You acknowledge and agree that the vehicle will not be released to you until all funds have cleared or the relevant funds are guaranteed from your card issuer or finance provider. You understand that the legal title of the vehicle will be passed from the Seller to you at the point of cleared funds. None of the above effects your statutory rights for a customer buying a vehicle as a consumer.

Disclaimer: Vehicles supplied by Van Monster may have a speed limiter fitted in-line with manufacturer guidelines. Van Monster will not guarantee that vehicles do not have a limiter fitted and will not remove or amend any aspect of a vehicle that would facilitate the end user to drive illegally. Users do so at their own discretion.

Whilst we try to ensure that all the prices on VanMonster.com's website and other websites we may use as marketing channels are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of the goods you have ordered we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible. You will then be given the option of re-confirming your order at the correct price or cancelling your order. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you by email.

RIGHT TO CANCEL

You have the right to cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.
The cancellation period will expire 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the goods.

To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement (eg a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail). You can use a standard cancellation form that will be supplied prior to purchase, but it is not obligatory. To inform us of your decision to cancel use the email address shown on the cancellation form below or telephone on 01325 356667.
To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

EFFECTS OF CANCELLATION

If you cancel this contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery.
You are only liable, and we may make a deduction from the reimbursement, for any loss in value of any goods supplied if the loss is as a result of any handling other than that which is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods (see also Use of the Vehicle Prior to Cancellation below).

We will make the reimbursement:

• without undue delay and not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract
• using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent the goods back, whichever is the earlier.

Use of the Vehicle Prior to Cancellation

You are entitled to use the vehicle you have purchased to determine its nature, characteristics and functioning. We consider this use to be similar to the number of test drives which you would receive if you were buying a vehicle from a dealer face to face. You must not use the vehicle after notifying us that you are cancelling the contract and you must keep it in good condition from the date you or your nominated person receives it.
We are entitled to charge you if the value of the vehicle has reduced as a result of excessive use by you or any damage you caused to it. We may charge you:

• if it has been driven for more than 500 miles since you received it a fee equal to £1.00 for each mile driven in excess of 500 miles; and/or

• if the value of the vehicle has been reduced because it is not in the condition it was in when you received it, our reasonable costs to repair it so that it is in the condition it was in when you received it.

For the purposes assessing the mileage you have driven we will record the mileage on the Vehicle when delivered to you or the person you nominate to receive it and this mileage will be conclusive in determining whether you have driven more than 500 miles since Delivery.

Ancillary Contracts

Cancellation of the purchase will also cancel any ancillary contracts.
Fines, and Penalties and Similar Payments

You will remain liable for any fines incurred, any accidents and or damage to the vehicle up to and until you physically return the vehicle to us.
