3.Our contract with you
3.1 How to place an order To place an order, please visit our website: https://www.brakesfoodshop.co.uk. Please note that our delivery services are subject to geographical restrictions and, therefore, may not be available in your area. To find out if we currently deliver in your area, please use the post-code finder on the site. If you need to speak to a member of our team about your order or otherwise about the Brakes Food Shop service, please contact us on 0344 412 9985.
3.2 How we will accept your order Our acceptance of your order will take place when we have confirmed your order and taken payment from you for the price of your order, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.3 If we cannot accept your order If we are unable to accept your order or we need to cancel your order for any reason, we will (where we have already collected payment from you) refund you the purchase price of the products.
3.4 If products are unavailable Goods are subject to availability and prevailing market conditions and, therefore, it is possible that some products you order may become unavailable following the confirmation of your order. In such circumstances, you will be refunded the price for the products that are unavailable at the point of delivery.
3.5 Your order number We will assign an order number to your order and confirm this on the confirmation email we send to you following our processing of your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
4.1 Is there a minimum order value? For orders intended for delivery, we operate a minimum order value of £100 (exclusive of VAT).
4.2 Is there a maximum amount I can order? For the delivery services, to help ensure our products are available to all our customers, you will be unable to order more than 5 of any particular product. We are also restricting orders to a maximum of £500 (exclusive of VAT).
4.3 Where will we deliver the products to? We will deliver to the front door of your house. With the social distancing measures currently being adopted by our business, unfortunately our drivers will be unable to assist with moving the products into your home where they are invited to do so or with unpacking the products. If you live in a block of flats, our driver will deliver to the communal entrance at ground floor level. As our vehicles do not currently carry the appropriate manual handling equipment, our drivers will not be able to deliver where they would be required to climb a flight of stairs (five or more steps). Our driver will, where possible, try to call when he is nearing the delivery address and to provide you with an estimated time of arrival – please ensure someone is available to collect the products at the point of delivery. If you are collecting the products in a communal area, please note that our driver may require seeing a photo ID before releasing the order.
4.4 When will the order be delivered? At the point of ordering online, you will be asked to confirm the desired delivery date from those that are available. We will endeavour to deliver the products between the hours of 8am and 7pm to the home address you have provided. If our driver is delayed or, for any reason, we cannot complete your delivery on the delivery date assigned (for example, due to a vehicle break down) we will contact you to inform you that your order will be cancelled and to advise you how you can place a new order.
4.5 If you miss the delivery? If you are out when our driver attempts the delivery, our driver will return the order to the depot and we will cancel and refund the value of your order. We will leave a “Sorry we Missed You” card to advise you that we tried to attempt delivery. The card will contain a phone number and invoice number to quote if you wish to contact us. Please note that we will be unable to leave the products at a safe place given the perishable nature of the products and we reserve the right to deduct a cancellation fee of £20 in these circumstances to cover the cost of the failed delivery. If you wish to replace your order, please return to our website at www.brakesfoodshop.co.uk and resubmit your order.
4.6 Delivery Restrictions At the point of your order, please advise of any delivery restrictions, for example, access roads to the property that may be unsuitable for commercial vehicles, including vehicle height, weight or width restrictions. Please ensure that you answer any questions asked by our customer sales agent or on our website regarding delivery restrictions accurately as it may determine our ability to deliver to your property. For example, as our vehicles do not currently carry the appropriate manual handling equipment our drivers will not be able to deliver where they would be required to climb a flight of stairs. Our delivery driver will undertake a risk assessment when making the delivery and consider any such delivery restrictions or any potential safety issues, such as the width and condition of stairs and the suitability of the access roads to the property. If, for any reason, the driver does not consider it to be safe to complete the order, the driver will return the order to the depot and we will attempt to contact you to inform you of the failed delivery. In such circumstances, we will refund the purchase price of the order.
4.7 What if my delivery has not arrived between the hours of 8am and 7pm on the allocated day Please call our Customer Care team on 0344 412 9985.
5.1 Products are not intended for resale The products are not supplied by us for the purposes of resale, and are only supplied for your own use as a consumer. Furthermore, many of our products are labelled in a way that allows the product to be sold in a case, but not split and sold or otherwise distributed as individual items. We reserve the right to refuse orders including those we consider are for commercial or non-domestic purposes. Where products are used for non-domestic purposes we exclude (to the fullest extent permitted by law) those warranties and conditions relating to fitness for a particular purpose.

Customers are advised to check product packaging for nutritional information and allergen warnings before consumption, as product information is subject to change after publication of the recipe. Important information: as some of our products are sold in a case (that contains individual products), the product information may be included on the outer case but not the individual products that appear in the case. In such circumstances, please ensure that you or anyone in your household or with whom you share the products, consults the product information appearing on the case.
