Terms of Business Print E-mail

When you (the person named on the order) place an order with us (Wholesale Tool Warehouse) we do business together under the following terms:


We offer goods for sale through our website (www.wholesaletoolwarehouse.com), our catalogue and via representatives. Our website will always show the lowest and current price available for any item.


The prices we quote on the website exclude VAT. VAT is calculated at the current rate and added to the order during the checkout process.

Availability and out of stock items

Our website shows if an item is in stock or out of stock. The website only allows you to order items that are in stock,  but although this information is updated regularly, occasionally it is out of date or incorrect.

If some of the item's you've ordred are out of stock, we will refund you for those items and process the rest of the order as usual. If all of the item's you've ordered are out of stock, we will issue you a full refund and cancel the order.

We may also give you the option to elay dispatch of your order for a couple of days while new stock is obtained or to have the out of stock items sent to you once they are in stock again (seperately to the rest of your order).

You may contact us at any time to check on the progress of your order.

Diapatch and Delivery

We will deliver your order to any UK address. Our standard delivery uses a national carrier or Royal Mail and in most cases you will receive your goods within 4 working days. Delivery shouldn't take longer than 6 working days. If you live off the beaten track or the carrier finds your address more difficult to find, your delivery may take a little longer. With some of the more remote areas such as the highlands of Scotland delivery can take several days. The delivery may talso take longer if faulty items are received form the manufacturer (and need to be sent back) or if delivery from the manufacturer takes longer than usual. The goods become your property as soon as they are dispatched to you.

Age Restrictions

Age restrictions apply to the supply of some goods. By ordering these goods you confirm that you are over 18 and that the person receiving the delivery is also over 18.


All of our goods are offered to you on a payment with order basis. Your payment is due to us when you place the order and is accepted by most credit cards, debit cards, by PAyPal or NoChex. Our representitives also accept cash. We will only accept your order if it is accompanied by payment in full. We provide credit accounts to a limited number of Businesses, Local Authorities and Government funded establishments.

Receiving Orders

Unless we have your written authorisation, we will always require an authorised signature when delivering goods to you.


If you wish to cancel your order you may do so at any time until we dispatch it. Your order will be packed and dispatched in a very short period. If you wish to cancel the order you should do so by telephone and we will confirm that it has been possible.

14 Day Refund
