About the GMC Associates mail order service
GMC Associates aim to deliver the best possible customer experience and we therefore adhere to all current and proposed legislation in addition to trade body guidelines. The conditions detailed below do not affect your statutory rights.
All items are subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as possible if the goods you have ordered are not available. Products and packaging are subject to change or substitution without prior notice. Every effort will be made to despatch the items specified.
If an item is out of stock we will email you with the option either to cancel your order or, having told you when we can fulfill it, to wait for delivery.
Methods of Payment
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Switch and Delta. If you are paying by Switch you will also need to include the card issue number or start date.
All prices are inclusive of VAT (where applicable) at the current rate and are correct at the time of input. Some products contain some zero rated goods and the consolidated VAT rate is then reduced accordingly. We reserve the right to amend prices subject to change in the rate of duty. The total cost of your order is the price of the products plus delivery charges. If you are ordering from a non-United Kingdom address the appropriate exchange rate will apply.
All orders are positively credit card sanctioned prior to dispatch, so please ensure that the details you provide us with are correct. We cannot accept responsibility for an order being held back as a result of incorrect or invalid payment details being given.
