TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ORDER
Please read these terms and conditions of sale before you place an order.
Order Delivery Information. (Please see our Delivery, Cancellation and Returns Policy.
All orders made through the website, by email or over the phone are subject to acceptance by us. We may choose not to accept your order for any reason and will not be liable to you or any other party. After placing an order with us we will send you an order acknowledgement email, with your order number and details of goods ordered. Please note that this email is only an acknowledgement and is not an acceptance of your order. Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product(s). Flying Tigers cannot accept your order until you have paid for it in full (including delivery charges).
Once you have completed a purchase, we will send you an email confirming that order. If the product(s) are out of stock or we are currently awaiting restocks, you will be notified.
Whilst we are under no obligation to accept your order, we would normally do so where: The product is available. The order reflects current pricing. Your credit/debit card is approved by your credit/debit card company.
You can access details of your order and any previous orders by logging in to your account once (but only if) you have registered. Upon payment, we will confirm acceptance of your order by email which will be sent to the email address you provide on your order details. Whether or not you receive this email, our acceptance of your order will create a legally binding contract between us. We reserve the right not to supply you at our discretion.
Provided the item(s) you have ordered are in stock, we endeavour to despatch your models as soon as practicably possible. In most cases, this would be the next working day, but this may slip to the following day at times of extremely high levels of business. If there is likely to be a protracted delay, for whatever reason, we will do our utmost to contact you and inform you of the situation.
Payment will be requested immediately prior to dispatch.
PRE-ORDERED ITEMS (BACK ORDERS) CANCELATION & REFUND TERMS OF CONTRACT
For the very many collectors who like to pre-order their model requirements, we will be happy to place your items on back order. Payment for these items will only be taken when the item(s) come into stock. At this time, we reserve the right to take payment for your items and arrange for dispatch or hold your model if part of multi-model order. We will NOT charge your nominated credit/debit card until your items are accepted into stock at Flying Tigers.
If, unless previously agreed in writing, pre-ordered models that have arrived at Flying Tigers remain unpaid for a period of 2 months from the date of arrival, Flying Tigers reserves the right to cancel ALL pre-ordered models made by that customer. The models will be put back to stock .
In the case of dramatically increased sales volumes (particularly in the case of commissioned models), due to the increase in business volumes and despatch requirements, we may request payment slightly in advance of the products arrival. This would be to act on any problems or queries (credit card expiry dates etc) and to simply process the increased business volumes. Wherever possible, we will give prior notification of our intentions both on the Breaking News section of our website and in the weekly Aviation Newsletter.
DELIVERY, AVAILABILTY AND RETURN POLICY
As already stated, we try to process orders as quickly as practicable, but we are unable to apply exact timescales as sometimes we are subject to factors outside of our control.
All of our products and services are subject to availability and may be altered, or withdrawn at any time. As we intend serving large numbers of home and international collectors, there may be times when an item moves from a stock position to an out of stock position, at a time when the website is not manned.
If, for whatever reason we are unable to supply goods in this situation, you will not be charged and we will contact you at the earliest opportunity. In the extremely unlikely event of a payment already being made, this will be refunded immediately.
Please be aware that we cannot be held responsible in this instance and compensation will NOT be paid for any other losses you may suffer if we do not supply the goods.
If wrong goods are received or parts/ items are missing from your order, Flying Tigers should be notified via email within 24hrs of receipt of models. Flying Tigers will arrange collection of the incorrect items free of charge and replace with the correct item free of any charge including postage. If this is not possible, a full refund will be made including return postage paid.
Missing items from your order will be sent to the buyer free of any charge to the buyer. *Except model kits… see below*
If goods are received faulty in manufacture or broken in transit, Flying Tigers should be notified via email within 24hrs of receipt of models. Flying Tigers will email you with instructions on how to return any faulty or broken goods. If the model is faulty or broken, a refund for the price of the model and outgoing postage will be made as soon as the goods have been returned to and received by Flying Tigers. The return postage will NOT be refunded. Flying Tigers does not offer a free replacement on faulty or broken models.
Please note we operate a 14 Days returns policy from date of purchase (Date of receipt of goods).
Goods returned for other reasons (for example, wrong goods ordered, model cancelled after it was dispatched, model not liked by the customer, or change of mind) must be received by Flying Tigers in New, Unused condition and with no damage. In order to return goods you must email Flying Tigers within 14 days from receipt. The return postage will NOT be refunded. A full refund for model amount and outgoing postage shall be refunded on receipt of returned goods.
*If you have ordered a Model kit, you have 14 days from date of purchase to advise of any faulty or missing parts. After the 14 days the warranty passes to the Manufacturer.
If a signature is not obtained on the delivery attempts, or if the Receiving Customs Fees and Import Duty and Taxes (VAT) fees are not paid on time or refused by customer when notified, the parcel will be returned and an administration fee will be charged to the customer along with return postage/ shipping fees. The administration fee will be determined by the Courrier. The customer will be re-charged to have the parcel re-delivered if requested.
RECEIVING YOUR ITEMS
It is extremely important to us that your models reach you in the best possible condition and every care is taken whilst packing your items. As collectors ourselves, we realize the importance of receiving your model in the condition it left the factory and although we do not break any seals on you models, we will make a visual inspection prior to packing. This will highlight all but the most obscure of problems, but will ensure that your models leave us in top condition.
We also use high grade packing materials and professional delivery services to ensure that these standards are carried through to you receiving your items. We are confident that these measures will lead to a high degree of customer satisfaction.
Please take care when opening your parcel. As you know, these items can contain delicate parts.
