Basis of sale
CME Leicester Limited (referred to as CME elsewhere in this document) is a Trade only supplier and therefore deals only with Business Customers. You are classified as a Business Customer if you provide evidence that the goods supplied by us will be used in the course of your business or if you use the goods in the course of your business. Buyers are required to register and provide information regarding their trading status in order to access the website and place orders.
CME shall sell and the Buyer shall purchase the Goods in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, which shall govern the contract to the exclusion of any other terms upon which any quotation is issued or purported to be accepted, or any such order is placed or purported to be made, by the Buyer, and for the avoidance of doubt and so far as the law allows all representations and other terms express or implied are hereby excluded.
No variation to these terms shall be binding unless agreed in writing between the authorised representatives of CME and the Buyer.
(We may, at any time, and without having to give any reason, suspend, modify or close accounts.)
All prices are shown exclusive of VAT.
Prices are subject to change due to fluctuations in the currency rates and precious metal prices. Accurate prices are shown on the website and are updated regularly. Catalogue prices are accurate at the time of going to print only.
Prices are subject to change without notice and orders are invoiced at prices current at the time of despatch.
Orders can be placed by via the website, post, fax, telephone and email:

The Buyer shall be responsible to CME for ensuring the accuracy of the terms of any order. Use of CME reference numbers is required to be submitted by the Buyer, and for giving CME any necessary information relating to the Goods within a sufficient time to enable CME to perform the contract in accordance with these terms. There is a minimum initial order for Goods which is currently £150 for a first order for new customers and £50 for any existing customers. (March 2022).
When you place an order with us, you are offering to buy the Goods you order. There is no commitment on us to supply those Goods, at that price, or at all, until we decide to accept your order.
We may send an email to you to confirm that we have received your order and are processing it. That email is not a confirmation that we have accepted your order. There is no legally binding contract at that stage.
When we have received your payment and processed the order for delivery, we will send an email to tell you we have accepted your order. There is then a binding contract. We remain free to decline all or part of your order at any time before we decide to accept it. We will send an email to tell you if we decide to decline your order (or part of it).
We have to deliver to the cardholder at the address registered for the payment card. We cannot deliver to any other address and we cannot deliver to any third party without a written request. This helps protect you against fraud.
Adding to or Altering orders
To ensure that orders for all customers are processed as fairly and efficiently as possible, customers cannot add to, or alter their orders, once they have been placed and confirmed by us.
The CME website gives Buyer’s information about the availability of Goods when ordering.
The website stock levels are updated every 2-3 hours.
You will also have the option to request an e-mail if the item is out of stock. Account customers may pre-order items out of stock (see below).
Account customers may choose to pre-order Goods which are not currently in stock. These Goods may become available immediately or normally within 12 weeks. Once available, these Goods will be added to any subsequent order made by the Buyer. If the Buyer requires pre-ordered Goods before they place a subsequent order then these extra Goods can be dispatched separately, but only where a request is made by the Buyer. Where a Buyer requires just the pre-ordered Goods separately these can be sent as required and they will be charged carriage. Goods pre-ordered will be left on pre-order for 12 weeks.
CME reserves the right to cancel pre/back orders.
Proforma customers are not able to pre-order (except those who order bespoke lines) but can opt to be sent an e-mail when placing an order to inform them when the stock becomes available.
Buyers are advised to use the live chat line or telephone for information about expected delivery dates for Out-of-Stock Goods.
No carriage will be charged on orders for items in stock that total over £300 (excluding VAT) in the UK mainland, and £350 (excluding VAT) in the Scottish Highlands, EU and Rest of the World.
(Please note that if an order is placed that falls below £300/£350 due to an error in stock numbers on the CME website then Buyers will still qualify for free carriage.)
Orders under £300/£350 will be charged at £4.99 (excluding VAT) per order for the UK, and £9.99 for orders under 2 kilos or fit in box of dimensions 33x31x9 CM (excluding VAT) for EU and the Rest of the World (prices March 2022). International orders over 2 kilos or that require box bigger than 33x31x9cm will incur additional carriage charges.
For all parts of the Scottish Highlands and Islands there will be an additional delivery charge £9.99 on orders below £350 (this is due to the fact 3rd party carriers are used to deliver goods).
UK orders are generally delivered by DHL or Royal Mail Special Delivery. Non-UK orders are delivered by DHL.
CME reserves the right to utilise an alternative operator if necessary.
CME reserves the right to alter delivery charges and all deliveries will be invoiced at the prices current at the time of despatch.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure next working day delivery in the UK, this cannot be guaranteed generally and in particular:
(i) For all parts of the Scottish Highlands and Islands
(ii) In the event that the carrier used by CME fails to comply with instructions to deliver next working day
(iii) In the event of industrial action by the carrier used by CME.
CME cannot accept liability for any loss resulting from late delivery or non-delivery of Goods.
