The Contract Between Us
To place an order with us you must be over 18. Your order is accepted once your goods have been despatched by us. We may not be able to accept your order, or part of your order, due to one of the following reasons:
- your payment failed to authorise or in the case of cheques is returned unpaid
- we made a pricing or product description error
- a product is out of stock or otherwise unavailable
- we feel that you are not using our website responsibly.
If there are any problems with an order, you will be contacted by one of our Customer Services team to provide a full explanation and to attempt to find the best resolution.
The prices payable for products that you order are as set out in our website.
You may be required to pay extra for delivery and it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. Our delivery charges are set out during the order process.
Amend or cancel an order
If you wish to change or cancel an order contact our Customer Services team on 0845 260 7061 between 08.30 and 17.00 Monday to Friday. Please have to hand the order number and date the order was placed.
Cancellation by us
We reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if:
- We have insufficient stock to deliver the products you have ordered. If this is the case, we will contact you to advise of an availability date or to offer you a substitute product;
- we do not deliver to your area; or
- one or more of the products you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error.
If we do cancel your contract we will notify you at the earliest opportunity and will re-credit to your account any sum deducted by us from your credit card as soon as possible but in any event within 7 working days of the cancellation. We will not be obliged to offer any additional compensation for disappointment suffered.

Delivery of products to you
- We will deliver the products ordered by you to the address you give us for delivery at the time you make your order. It is, however, your responsibility to provide us with accurate delivery address details.
- You will become the owner of the products you have ordered when they have been delivered to you. Once products have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.
Returns & refunds
We pride ourselves on our attention to quality products and excellent service. However, should you, for any reason wish to return any goods to us, we will refund the items under our "No Quibble Returns Policy" provided they are unused and returned in their original packaging within 10 days of receipt. (Original packaging includes outer box)
To discuss and arrange return of goods you are required to contact Customer Services at email@example.com or telephone 0845 260 7061.
OT Stores™ reserve the right to charge for all carriage costs incurred. If you request we arrange collection of the goods, the return carriage, administration and re-stocking charge will be applicable. We recommend this return method if ramps, chairs, wheelchairs or other high value goods are involved.
If you prefer, you can arrange the return of certain goods yourself. You must ensure you return the goods by a safe method of transport, appropriately packaged to eliminate risk of damage; we suggest using a service that requires a signature on receipt.
The following return address must be displayed on the outer packaging:-

Upon receipt and inspection of the goods we will arrange a credit refund for the product cost as appropriate
