Lease hire:
Express Cleaning Supplies is licensed under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 - Registration number 564014. We can provide competitive lease rates for equipment over £1000 in value. Lease figures provided on this website are subject to credit approval and are based on a 1 and 59 payment profile. E & OE. All lease payments are exclusive of VAT at the current rate and assume payment by direct debit. An administration fee may be payable with the first payment. Other payment profiles are available as detailed below.

Delivery (UK Mainland):
Other than the largest machines in our range, we normally stock all the products listed on this site and dispatch them direct from our own warehouse. The customer however accepts that not all items are in stock at all times, and in this case delivery may take longer than would otherwise be the case. Should you require an order that needs a guaranteed delivery date, please contact us to perform a stock check on your items.

Please note that despite our offer of free delivery on all orders over £75 excluding VAT being shipped to the UK, due to extra courier costs, delivery to places of geographical difficulty .i.e. Northern Scotland & Scottish Highlands, Isle Of Man, Northern Ireland will incur an extra carriage charge, which will be shown at the checkout.

We aim to deliver all orders complete within 3 working days. All orders are confirmed during business hours.  Anyone requiring an urgent delivery is advised to ring 01622 714800 to confirm stock availability.

Our usual delivery schedule is Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm.  We do cater for delivery times before 12pm, but this is at an extra cost. Specific delivery days, including Saturdays, and alternative delivery addresses can be accommodated but these are also subject to additional carriage charges and are subject to our own security checks.

Separate delivery and collection charges apply to larger hire equipment.

Please feel free to contact us for further clarification of our delivery policy.

Returns policy:
We are unable to exchange items that are not damaged, defective or incorrect.

We encourage customers to contact us within roughly 3 working days upon receiving the goods should there be any errors, damages or concerns so we can resolve the situation as efficiently and as quickly as possible.

Any goods ordered by the buyer subsequently returned to Express Cleaning Supplies for any reason other than faulty manufacture, will be subject to a restocking charge equal to 15% of the invoice value of the goods. The forgoing condition is further subject to goods being returned in the condition dispatched, and the responsibility for any costs or charges incurred in the return of such goods to the premises of Express Cleaning Supplies will be the buyer's.

Items must be returned in the packaging in which they arrived. If not then adequate measures must be taken to ensure a safe return. Please note that we reserve the right to send goods back to you that have been returned to us after 30 days unless they are faulty.

Express Cleaning Supplies will check all items returned as damaged or defective. In the event of finding no fault, we reserve the right to re-charge you for the item/s and to recover our fees and expenses from you.

12 month return to base warranty:
All machines sold by Express Cleaning Supplies are sold with a comprehensive, 12 month Return To Base Warranty (RTBW).

The start date of the RTBW is the date that you sign for the item from our courier. If a fault occurs with the machine within this time, then you will need to contact our support department 01622 714800. We will help to try and diagnose the problem over the phone, if this cannot be done then you will need to send the unit back to us at the above address via any recorded method.

Please note that we are a mail order company and only have limited facilities to bring back/collect items. The customer is responsible for all carriage charges on this warranty and any damages in transit incurred by the machine. If required the company can arrange for the faulty machine to be collected but the collection costs must be paid for in advance of collection. If the problem turns out not to be related to a machine failure (i.e. an operator misuse issue or operator damage) then the cost of repair is payable before the machine will be returned.

Complaints:
Occasionally we get things wrong but we are committed to putting them right when we do. If for any reason you wish to complain you can speak to anyone in our customer services department who will endeavor to solve the matter to your satisfaction. You can email us, phone us or write to us with any comments or complaints you have, or contact Steve Wentzell (Managing Director) direct.
