You will be required to send us a RIB for this purpose upon prior request from our sales team by e-mail.

Delivery

We deliver your parts and articles against payment. As soon as we receive and accept your payment, you will receive an email confirming receipt of payment, then we will send you the tracking information for your package as soon as it is handed over to our carrier.

The products ordered are delivered to the delivery address provided during the ordering process or to the pick-up point. The Customer must ensure that the address provided is accurate and complete. The Customer is responsible for the address error, and Accasteo.co.uk declines all responsibility for the delivery.

If, however, the Customer notes a delivery anomaly (delay, change of collection point, loss of tracking, etc.), Customer Service is available to identify the problem encountered and propose a solution. However, we cannot be held responsible for the delivery times of your orders, attributable solely to the carrier.

We take great care in protecting and packaging the parts we ship. Upon receipt of your order, it is however your responsibility to report any visible damage to the package that may have occurred during transport. If the packaging of the package and (or) its contents are deteriorated, state your reservations on the delivery note detailing the problem, and depending on the seriousness of the deterioration, refuse the package. This reservation will be necessary in order to be able to make a claim to the carrier. If there is any damage to the package, please take photos of the package before and during its opening and send them to us by email so that we can take care of your claim. If the delivery person or the staff in charge of the relay delivery does not give you the opportunity to check the contents, you have the possibility to express your reservations to the carrier within ten days, preferably by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt (article L.224-65 of the French Consumer Code).

After this period, the delivery shall be deemed complete and the products delivered shall be deemed free of any apparent defect. Consequently, Accasteo.co.uk will no longer accept any claims for damage, missing product, damaged package, broken parts on receipt

Right of withdrawal and return

No return of parts is accepted if it is an order error. It is up to you to find out BEFORE ordering, and if in doubt, to seek the assistance of a competent professional (your mechanic). We cannot be held responsible for the compatibility of the parts ordered with your motor or boat.

We put photos of the best possible quality on our site, as well as the maximum amount of detail in our possession to enable you to ensure that the part is suitable for your engine. By ordering a part on our site, you are therefore solely responsible for your purchase, and thus agree to be considered competent at the time of your purchase. If this is not the case, please do not order yourself and be assisted by a competent person.

We accept returns of parts ordered online within 14 days of receipt of the order, provided that the part is technically faulty, and after obtaining our prior written agreement in the context of an after-sales service return. It is up to you to demonstrate, by providing detailed photos, that the part has a defect and cannot be used in its original function.

In accordance with the legislation in force at the date of creation of the order, the Customer acknowledges and accepts that the right of withdrawal must be made within 14 clear days from the delivery of the services/products provided for distance selling. Return postage will be charged to the Customer. It is up to the Customer to take the greatest care in packaging and protecting returned items. No refund request will be accepted if an item is returned to us damaged, broken, with paint altered or chipped as a result of an order error or a defect related to assembly. The Customer must contact our company by email in order to obtain the modalities of return of the part concerned before returning the part.

Conditions of return and reservations :

MECHANICAL PARTS WITHOUT ELECTRICITY
- We do not accept returns as long as the part has been assembled and used and shows signs of wear and tear or has been damaged due to a lack of precautions during assembly (unless we have agreed to this by email).

MECHANICAL PARTS WITH ELECTRICITY
- We reserve the right not to accept the return request for parts in which electricity is flowing during operation (CDI, coils etc.). All electrical parts must be the subject of a prior agreement by email from us before return.

In the event of a part received in return damaged or abnormally worn, due to a lack of protection during return or due to incorrect handling during assembly, and within the framework of a prior agreement for an exceptional partial refund on our part, the amount refunded will vary according to the condition of the part received after verification by our technical team. The exceptional partial reimbursement may not exceed between 5% and 50% of the total value of the new part on sale on the date of registration of the payment of the order concerned.

The refund is made according to the method of payment initially used. However, refunds may exceptionally be made by bank transfer. In this case, the Accasteo.co.uk teams will ask the customer to provide a bank account number (RIB). Returns made under conditions that comply with the General Conditions of Sale and Use shall give rise to the reimbursement of the price invoiced for the returned items.

Return transport costs are the responsibility of the Customer, with the exception of the return of a part other than the one ordered, or one that does not conform.

Your refund may be refused in the following cases:

- Product returned in a condition that no longer allows marketing, or incomplete
- Returned product unsuitable, with assembly marks and damaged
- Product returned without the product label
- Withdrawal request made after the withdrawal period has expired
- Warranty denied

In any case, the products must be returned in their original condition, without any trace of assembly or wear. Any product that is not in the same condition as the one in which it was delivered, and which is incomplete, damaged or used will not be refunded.
