Terms & Conditions

Bryan Purves has been providing specialist car restoration services and parts for many years. The majority of our customers are long-standing and many new customers are recommended by existing customers. The company values our customer  relationships, but in common with all other service companies it is necessary for us to operate strict ‘Terms & Conditions’ covering both the supply of goods and also restoration work undertaken in our workshops.

These conditions apply to the exclusion of any condition whatsoever of the buyer whether implied or expressed.



Bryan Purves (the Company) does not supply goods on a sale or return basis and there is no obligation on the Company to accept returned goods. However, the company, may at its discretion, accept within a period of not more than seven business days, items in an ‘as supplied’ condition, subject to a re-stocking charge of 20% The company is unable to refund any postage costs and the above relates to the original cost of the goods.  However, items that are customer specific, or special order e.g. trim items where the customer has specified colour etc cannot be returned. Payment for items, including postage, is required prior to dispatch.

Prices shown on the Company’s website are correct at the time of display on-line. However, in the unlikely event of either an Administrative error or the need for the Company to acquire further stock to satisfy the customer’s order then we reserve the right to correct the price, in the case of an Administrative error or adjust the price to reflect the company’s own costs from its supplier.,



All goods will be despatched via a carrier on a next day delivery where applicable and charged to the customer’s account.  Bryan Purves always obtains a ‘proof of posting’ but cannot be held responsible for loss or damage of any goods in transit. Should the customer require insurance for the period of transit, the Company should be informed; this will then be arranged and will be charged as an extra supplement.

Where possible, an agreed supply price will be stated based upon the current fixed prices as per ‘the Company’ website. Bryan Purves reserves the right to amend prices when appropriate. In a situation where the vehicle or parts of are delivered for the preparation and installation of component parts, trim, carpets and weather equipment etc. an exact quotation cannot be given as every situation is different and requires a varying approach. In the event of the discovery of the need for remedial work to be undertaken for example welding, replacement of timbers, framing, straightening panels in order to complete the fitment of trim, panels, covers, etc. Bryan Purves will undertake this work as required and the additional labour and materials will be charged to the customer. In the event of the discovery of major work to be undertaken the customer will be informed and requested to visit within a period of 5 days to confirm that work may continue. In the event of the customer not being able to visit, the restoration work will commence and chargeable in full to the customer.

In all cases a deposit of 50% for stock items and 100% for non-stock items will be required prior to work commencing. Where there is ongoing work in progress on a vehicle or parts of at our premises, an Invoice will be generated on a monthly basis. Payment of the account must be made within 14 working days of the date of Invoice otherwise interest will be added at 8% above Base Rate (E.U. regulations. August 2002 apply).

5.Collection of Goods

All goods must be collected within a period of 7 days after notification of the completion of the order. Alternatively the customer will be notified when the goods are ready for despatch and will be shipped within seven days after notification. The Company does not have storage facilities for cars where work has been completed; it is therefore important that vehicles awaiting collection must be removed within 7 days after completion of the work and notification. In the event of non collection of a vehicle, we will make storage arrangements with a ‘third party’ company, whose current charges (April 2010) are £15.00 per day plus VAT. These charges will be added to the final Invoice. All goods and vehicles will only be released against cleared funds.


6.Non Collection of Goods (General Lien)

Goods that have not been collected or paid for in full after a period of three months will become the property of Bryan Purves. If any such lien is not satisfied within the three month period Bryan Purves may at the company’s absolute discretion advertise and sell the goods or part thereof. Should there be a profit upon selling the goods over and above the outstanding Invoice the difference will be remitted to the customer less all the incurred expenses.



It is the responsibility of the owner of a vehicle entrusted to Bryan Purves to ensure that the vehicle is comprehensively insured. If individual components have been entrusted to ‘the company’ it is the owners’ responsibility to insure all the items. Many insurance companies require details of the location of cars overnight and it is therefore recommended that the owner informs their insurance company when cars are placed with Bryan Purves for restoration works. Failure to do this could have an impact on agreed value insurance etc.

Bryan Purves is fully insured. Customers are advised to ensure their own insurance remains in operation whilst their property is located at the Company’s workshops.
