Accepting orders and security
Before we accept your order, we may use the information you have given to us – or we already hold about you, or which we receive from any enquiry we may make – to confirm your identity. This assists us to protect you and us from fraudulent transactions.
When the initial confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we e-mail a PDF copy of your ‘order confirmation’. We reserve the right to cancel any order at any point, where an error has been made with pricing or where we are unable to supply the goods for any reason. Where any supply or pricing issue arises, we will always contact you in an effort to resolve the issue to your satisfaction.
CastRadiatiorsDirect.co.uk may contain links to third party websites or services which are not operated by our company. In these instances, CastRadiatiorsDirect.co.uk is not responsible for the content, as it is not controlled by us. You must refer to the destination terms and conditions to ascertain your rights.
Delivery and liability
We recommend that you inspect your goods thoroughly upon delivery BEFORE you sign the paperwork for them.
Only make arrangements for your trades-persons once you have received and checked your goods.
These two simple steps help to protect you and so they are heavily advised.
We will send you an email to confirm that we have received your order. We reserve the right to decline your order. In which case, you will be contacted to seek an alternative payment method.
We endeavour to deliver all items within the time scales given; however, we are reliant on third party carriers and cannot be held liable for any delays and/ or loss caused by a delay.
We will not be responsible for any losses resulting from your usage or inability to use this website. This includes fraudulent access to, or alteration of transactions or information provided which is not controlled by us. We will not be responsible for any loss of your profits or costs incurred or any other losses which have not been caused directly by us.
Except as expressly provided in these Terms, all warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded. Nothing in these Terms excludes or limits our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or fraudulent misrepresentation or for any matter which it would be illegal for us to exclude or attempt to exclude.
Subject to the other provisions in these conditions, we shall not be liable for any direct, indirect or consequential loss (all three of which terms include, without limitation, pure economic loss, loss of profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill and similar loss), costs, damages, charges or expenses which arise directly or indirectly in connection with the supply of the products to you or your use or resale of the products.
Our total liability in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise, arising in connection with the supply of the products shall be limited to the price paid for the products.
Damaged/ faulty radiators
Where a delivered radiator is damaged, we ask that you check it over within two working days of its receipt and report the damage to us within that time-frame. We require photographic evidence of the damage to take action, but this can follow after reporting if you do not have the opportunity to photograph them initially. Failure to report the damages within the two-working-day period will mean that we cannot provide a replacement item for the products made by Reina and DQ and may not be able to for our other manufacturers. Each case will vary and we will always do our utmost to provide a replacement to you.
Where a radiator has proven to be faulty (for example, it has leaked), and it is still covered by its guarantee, we ask that you take a photograph of where you think the fault originates and provide as detailed a description as possible.
In all instances, we need to return the original radiator to the supplier in order to provide a replacement.
If you require a replacement immediately you have the option of purchasing a new radiator, and a full refund will be given once the original radiator has been returned to the supplier it came from.
In the event that certain circumstances have resulted in more products being delivered than you have ordered, you must report this to us and you MUST allow us to collect these items. Failure to do so will result in legal action to retrieve our legal property.
Under the Distance Selling Regulations, you have the legal right to cancel your order within seven working days from the day after receipt of the goods (with the exception of special order items).
Please make sure all goods are returned in the original, undamaged packaging at the cost of you, the consumer.
Any goods you wish to return that aren’t faulty or weren’t damaged before you received, checked and signed for them will be charged a standard re-stocking fee of between 25% and 50% of the total sale value of the specific goods being returned (depending on the manufacturer). In the case of special order items that are not normally kept in stock by either ourselves or the manufacturer of the radiator, a varying procedure will come into effect depending upon the radiator(s) and the manufacturer in question.
Next day radiators
Our ‘Next Day Radiators’ section refers to radiators that will be delivered on the following working day. For example, a radiator ordered on Friday will be dispatched and delivered on the following Monday, which is the very next working day.
Orders on next day radiators must be made before 12noon for us to be able to process them and relay them to our suppliers. Orders made after that time may not be processed in time to meet our suppliers’ deadlines. For example, if you order a next day radiator at 4pm on a Tuesday, it will not be processed until the following working day which is Wednesday, and it will be dispatched and delivered on Thursday.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Cast Radiators Direct Ltd., its directors, officers, employees and affiliates from any and all third party claims, damages, liability and/ or costs (including, but not limited to legal fees) arising from, without limitation, your use of Cast Radiators Direct’s services, your breach of the Terms and Conditions, your infringement of any intellectual property right or any other right of any person or entity, or your breach of any duty of confidence or privacy, or any defamatory statements made by you in any form.
Description and samples
All samples, drawings, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising issued by us and any descriptions or illustrations contained in our range are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the products described in them; they are to be used as guidance only. They will not form part of these Terms.
All technical data, measurements and outputs are in accordance with the manufacturer’s terms of reference at the time of going to press. Each manufacturer reserves their individual rights to change, alter or discontinue products (including brackets and fixtures), as illustrated within our range. You are advised to confirm at the time of ordering the published technical data in our range.
Regarding pipe-centre information, specified details published on CastRadiatorsDirect.co.uk are based on estimates of the size of the valves used. Commonly, for side connections to a radiator you should estimate that you add 80mm or 90mm on to the width of the radiator, which is where the pipe centre estimates on CastRadiatorsDirect.co.uk are derived from. This is a guideline only. After receiving your radiator, to be accurate we recommend that you only install pipe work once you have received the valves. This allows you to measure the specific set of valves to be used at the site and know the exact dimension to add on to the width of the radiator. We accept no responsibility for mislaid pipework.
If you require a radiator with different connections or optional positions for plugs and bushes, you should check that these are available and the change must be specified at the time of order.
When fitting valves, appropriate amounts of PTFE and care must be taken when tightening the valve as excess pressure could damage radiator paint work, which can result in rust formation and leaks. We cannot be held liable for damage caused by incorrectly fitted valves or air-vents.
Printing and pricing errors
We try to be very competitive with our prices but, should a product be listed at an incorrect price due to typographical error or error in pricing information from our suppliers, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders listed at the incorrect price whether or not the order has been confirmed. If your credit card has already been charged and we subsequently cancel your order, we will immediately issue a credit to your credit card account in the value of the incorrect price. (Errors and omissions accepted.)
We use professionally captured images and in some instances photo colours are adapted for the Internet. We cannot be held responsible if the colour you buy is not exactly as it appears in the flesh.
All prices are in pounds sterling (£), inclusive of VAT at 20% and exclusive of delivery charges. Delivery charge is specified on the delivery section of this website.
We accept most major credit and debit cards; these include Visa, MasterCard, Electron, Solo and Switch. We will require the cardholder’s full details including name, address and telephone number, as registered with the bank. Incorrect information will cause a delay in processing your order. Your order will only be processed once authorisation of your credit card has been properly received.
As well as through the online payment on CastRadiatiorsDirect.co.uk, we can also accept payment via telephone by credit or debit card, however we are unable to accept payment by any other methods (e.g. cheque or postal orders). We reserve the right to cancel your order if for any reason we deem the transaction to be fraudulent and in this instance your card will be refunded.
For our own safety, before we can process an order using credit/ debit cards we require a home/ billing address which matches the card’s details. To help prevent fraud, under no circumstances can we allow a customer to collect a radiator from any of our suppliers. Radiators must be delivered to a specified address which belongs or is affiliated with the customer, so that at a later date if anything does prove to be suspicious/ fraudulent, there is a way to track those parties.
Price match guarantee
Cast Radiators Direct Ltd. promise to beat any like-for-like price found on another online retailer’s website, with the stipulation that the other party’s product must be available and that their price does not fall below our own supply price for the product.
Cast Radiators Direct Ltd. will not be under any liability whatsoever in the event that the company is prevented or delayed from supplying or making delivery of any goods by any reason or cause beyond our control.
CastRadiatiorsDirect.co.uk may offer free gift promotions. Under the terms of the Sale and Supply of Goods to Consumers Regulations 2002, free gifts linked to the purchase of a particular product or a specified value form part of that purchase contract. In the event that you wish to return that purchase, then the free gift must be returned to us at the same time.
Publication of comments online

We aim to exceed our customer expectations each and every time; however, there may be rare occasions when a customer feels that they have not been treated fairly. If this is the case, you agree that before posting any negative comments on any website, newsgroup, blog or other online resource you agree to write to the customer services manager explaining the problem and allow us 14 days to investigate and resolve the problem and/ or respond in writing (see: Complaints). If you are still unsatisfied then you agree to include the customer services reply in any online publication you make, to provide any readers with a balanced view.
