How often do you order from mail-order or internet companies, only to find that your products will take 28 days to
arrive? If products are in stock, they normally leave us on the same working day and we offer a range of delivery services so you can choose how fast you receive it.

By placing an order with us you accept our Terms and Conditions of Sale.
Terms and Conditions of Sale (T&Cs):
T&Cs: Shipping, postage and packing
We currently only ship goods to addresses in the United Kingdom via our website.
(We can ship some of our products to other countries, but we have to price each order individually.
If you know which product(s) you are interested in, please
for pricing and shipping costs).
Where products are in stock, and orders are placed before our shipping cut-offs on a working day,
the order will normally be shipped the same working day. The shipping cut-off times (and expected delivery
dates) are displayed in the shopping basket when you select a shipping option.
Our product prices include shipping to UK addresses, so there will always be a "free" shipping
option for your order. The specific service we offer for free depends on the weight and value of the items in
As a general guide:
In most cases, a signature is required on delivery.
- Orders below £40 will usually be shipped by Second Class Post
- Orders above £40 and below £250 usually go with the Royal Mail Tracked 24 service
- Orders above £250 are sent with an insured Next-Working-Day Carrier
Next working day items are usually sent by DPD or Royal Mail Special Delivery,
depending on the type of product and the delivery destination.
There are options to upgrade your order to a faster delivery service in our website basket.
We reserve the right to substitute the selected delivery service for an equivalent or better service, should
we believe it appropriate.
This may happen for reasons such as (but not limited to):
- the insurance value of the selected delivery service being insufficient.
- the selected delivery service being unavailable or prohibitively expensive for the delivery destination.
If the courier is unable to deliver your order, they will either attempt to deliver to a neighbour, attempt to
redeliver the following day, leave a card for you to rearrange a suitable time for redelivery or leave the parcel
at your local Post Office / courier depot for you to collect.
If the email address supplied with your order is valid, we will send a confirmation of shipping, including
tracking details where appropriate, once the parcel has been collected from us toward the end of the working day.
We reserve the right to alter the postage and packing costs on any order - we will however notify you if we do so,
before processing your order.
T&Cs: Payment information
We accept payments by the following methods:
When placing your order, you can select the payment method to use.
Credit card or debit card. Online payments are processed securely through our third-party payment provider.
Card details are encrypted using 128-bit SSL connections.
(Please note that as a fraud-reduction measure, we will ONLY ship goods to the
registered card billing address for credit/debit card orders)
- PayPal (for orders with a total value no more than £3000)
(Please note, to comply with PayPal's Seller Protection requirements, we can only
take PayPal payments where the delivery address selected is a "Confirmed" address, and is within the UK)
- Bitcoin (for orders with a total value no more than £3000)
- Bank transfer
If you do not wish to enter your payment card details online, you can print the order form - this will allow
you to complete your payment details by hand and to post or fax your order to us. Or simply give us a call
on the number above, and we'll be happy to help.
T&Cs: Returns information
Returns can only be made by prior agreement with Gendan Limited.
Any product returned to us must be returned with all associated items originally sent as part of the product and in
the same packaging, unless otherwise agreed with Gendan Limited.
You should return any product to us via a suitably insured means based on the value of the product. You should
retain any receipt confirming the return. If returned products are lost we will not be liable for them.
Software can only be returned if the seal on the product is completely intact. The only exception to this is if the
product is faulty or misdescribed. Should this be the case, please contact us.
Unwanted Goods - within 14 days of delivery
Orders placed on or after June 13th 2014 are covered by the 'The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation
and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013' (which replace the Distance Selling Regulations).
These regulations give you a 14-day 'cooling-off period', beginning the day after your order is received.
Within this 14 day period, you have the right to cancel and return the order without penalty, subject to the
The regulations allow you to inspect your purchase to the same extent as you would be able to in a shop,
before deciding whether to keep it. They do not entitle you to use the product.
The product(s) must be returned to us complete, un-used, and in as-new condition.
If the products are returned complete and unused, we will refund your original purchase price including the basic
(free) shipping option. We are not required to refund any charges for shipping upgrades selected at the time
The customer is responsible for the costs associated with returning the order to us.
If a product has been used, we have the right to deduct a reasonable amount from the refund to reflect the
reduction in resale value of the product.
We supply some products in a clear (transparent), sealed plastic bag, to allow them to be inspected as if
in a shop, while guaranteeing they are not used. If such a product is returned once the bag has been opened,
it will be considered used (even if there are no visible signs of damage), and so a reasonable proportion of
the value will be deducted from the refund.
In the case of products which cannot be re-sold once they have been used (e.g. car oxygen sensors and ignition
coils), if the product is returned once the sealed bag has been opened, we have the right to deduct 100% of the
product value from the refund, as the returned part has negligible resale value. These products will have a warning label
regarding this attached to the bag.
Products supplied digitally (e.g. software downloads) are covered by the regulations, however the regulations
stipulate that we must not begin supply (i.e. provide activation codes) for a digital product purchase until 14
days after the purchase has been made - essentially bypassing the cooling-off period.
By requesting activation details for a digital purchase within the 14 day period, you acknowledge that you waive
your right to cancel under the regulations.
Should you wish to cancel your order within the cooling-off period, we have a standard cancellation form including
instructions available here (pdf format).
There is also an HTML-based version of the form itself here.
You may use this to inform us of your decision to cancel within the 14-day period.
After contacting us for a return, please wait for a reply. We will issue you with an RMA number, to ensure your
return is tracked correctly when we receive it.
If you decide to return your order, you must return it to reach us no later than 14 days after you inform us of your
intention to return, or 14 days after we issue you with an RMA number, whichever is the later.
Should the product(s) supplied be faulty or incorrectly supplied, different regulations apply. See the "Damaged,
Defective or Faulty Goods" section below.
Unwanted Goods - more than 14 days after delivery
We are not obliged to accept the return of an unwanted good after the 14-day cooling-off period mandated by the Consumer
Contracts Regulations has expired - we are entitled to accept returns at our discretion. Contact us to find
out if this is possible for your case.
Any goods returned must be unopened and in a re-saleable condition, and will be subject to a minimum administration and handling
fee of 20% of the invoice value. You will be responsible for the cost of safe carriage back to us.
Postage and packing costs are non-refundable.
Damaged, Defective or Faulty Goods
Gendan Limited will repair or replace any product that has failed in normal usage as long as the product has
been used as intended and does not, on examination, display any signs of misuse.
Should we attempt to repair the product and find that no inherent manufacturing fault exists, we will return
the product to you and charge you 20% of the product's selling price to cover the cost of the testing process.
If you are dissatisfied with the quality of the goods or the goods are damaged or wrongly supplied, you must
give written notice to Gendan Limited within 7 working days of delivery. We will arrange as our option to refund
or replace the goods.
Should you need to return a product due to an error on our part we will exchange or refund the product for you.
We will also refund any reasonable associated carriage costs.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make
producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also
mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return
their waste equipment free of charge.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream
in the UK.
Recycling reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
Gendan Limited is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like
basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.
Customers must return their like-for-like WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol
to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household
waste so that they can be recycled.
For further information on our WEEE and environmental policies, please
