What is included?

Equipment is second user and is electrically inspected and checked to manufacturer’s specifications before despatch to end-users by an independent calibration house traceable to UK National Standards unless otherwise specified in our formal quotation.

Certificates of Conformance will be included free of charge to end-users unless otherwise stated in our formal quotation.

We can arrange ISO9001:2000 or UKAS Certificates of Calibration if required. There will be an additional charge for this work.

Manuals and all other standard accessories will be included with the equipment sold to the end-users we supply unless otherwise stated in our formal quotation.

The equipment is cleaned and/or refurbished where necessary before despatch, so that the physical appearance is similar to the original manufactured condition, unless stated in our formal quotation.

A warranty will be provided covering parts and labour for all products sold to end-users with the exception of those sold "as is". Please see our Warranty Statement for further details.

We offer unbiased (impartial) advice on a wide range of product manufactures with free technical support and information prior to sale and a complete after sales support.

- for goods being delivered to end-users within the U.K. mainland, we sell on a CPT St Albans Incoterms 2010 basis and will arrange for our carrier to deliver the goods to your U.K. mainland destination paying the carriage, so all you need to cover is the insurance of the goods whilst in transit. We will advise you full details for your insurance purposes at the time of despatch. If you do not have transit insurance cover in your insurance policy, don't worry, cover can be arranged via our carrier, so just let us know and we will add the insurance cost to our quotation.
- for goods being delivered outside the U.K., we sell on an Ex-Works St Albans Incoterms 2010 basis. So all you need to do is give us your international courier account details and we will arrange for them to collect the goods from our U.K. address with carriage and insurance for your account.
