As set out on the header of these terms and conditions a delivery area is simply referring to "Mainland UK" If you are requesting a delivery to an area outside of mainland UK then we will do one of two things.
1) Use an alternative courier.
2) Contact customers if an alternative is not suitable due to size and weight.
The postcode areas which couriers consider not to be mainland UK are postcodes beginning by BT, IV, HS, JE,GY, IM, AB30-35, AB44-54, AB36-38, AB55-56, EIRE, FK17-21, G83,KA27-28, KW, PA20-99, PH17-32, PH34-48, PH33, PH49-99, TR21-25, ZE
For this reason all postcode areas listed above may not be on a next day delivery and will take slightly longer
Please note, any additional charges which you may be asked to pay is what we are charged by our courier companies we do not profit from courier costs and we do everything we can to avoid them such as using other couriers such as royal mail.
Risk and Property
As soon as we have delivered the Goods or services, you will be responsible for them. If you delay a delivery our responsibility for everything other than damage due to our negligence will end on the date we agree to deliver them, as set out in the contract.

Goods supplied to you are not for resale
Warrants and Liability
Terms and conditions of this contract do not affect any additional rights you may have under a manufacturer’s warranty/guarantee. These are rights given to you by the manufacturer in addition to your statutory rights. Any additional rights given to you by the manufacturer in respect of Goods purchased are not incorporated into this contract.
As a consumer you have statutory rights regarding the return of defective Goods and claims in respect of losses caused by any negligence on our part or our failure to carry out our obligations. The terms and conditions of this contract do not affect your statutory rights. For further information regarding these rights contact Trading Standards or Citizens’ Advice Bureau.
If there is a claim that a fault has occurred with a purchased product, the following points may come into effect
1) It is important to note, that normally any manufacturers warranties would be null and void if there is reason to believe that a fault was not caused by a manufacturers defect
2) As an example, the product was wired wrongly, the fault is caused by using an incompatible or faulty transformer or led driver where appropriate. Please note, warranties are only valid when the lighting product is used with the recommended LED Driver/Transformer. EG, if you purchase a LED Light from us and use another manufacturers LED Driver than your warranty will be null and void. The reason for this is because like any manufacturer we perform extensive testing to ensure that the lighting and relevant drivers are compatible. If you were to use our lighting products with another manufacturers LED Driver than we would of performed no quality checks on this LED Driver and therefore cannot be 100% that the driver is to a satisfactory standard.
Please note, we adopt this policy and believe this to be fair and in line with most other leading manufacturer's policies.
3) Unless a product states it is dimmable, it is assumed that it is not. Therefore if you use a lighting product in conjunction with a dimmer it can cause failure or significantly reduce the life of a LED product. Therefore your warranty would be voided. This includes using a dimmer to just switch the lighting on/off.
Please note where dimmers are recommended on some product pages, it's important to note these are specialist 12-24v DC dimmers. Therefore standard 230v dimmers will not work with the products and will cause failure to the lighting.
If an item is returned to us and deemed not faulty. Or we believe that the fault has been caused by the customer, then we will charge the customer any costs associated in returning the product back to them.
It is very important to note the following warranty periods.
- LED Bulbs - Many LED Bulbs will be supplied with extended warranties. The minimum warranty for a LED product is 12 months. However we ask customers to refer to the warranty information on the product description page for further information.
- LED Tape - All LED tape is supplied as standard with a 1 year warranty and can be extended free of charge to a 5 year warranty. To extend the warranty to 5 years you must complete the warranty form supplied with your order and submit the extended warranty form to our company within 30 days of receiving the goods. There are other terms and conditions which refer to the 5 year warranty period and this can be supplied upon request.
- Halogen, Incandescent, fluorescent & CFL Bulbs. These carry a warranty of only 28 days and no longer. So please note any warranty periods noted on product descriptions will refer only to the fittings which hold the bulbs. EG, you buy a chandelier which is supplied with 5 x CFL Candle bulbs. The chandelier will have a 12 month warranty and the 5 x bulbs supplied will only carry a 28 day warranty.
Any orders placed on behalf of your business will NOT fall under the terms of Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 as it will be a business to business contract.
All sales are classed as final, we will not issue any refunds on goods ordered by you on behalf of your company unless faulty.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: TIME LIMIT FOR NOTIFICATION OF CLAIMS
You are asked to examine the goods as soon as reasonably possible after delivery. Any claim by you based on any defect in the quality or condition (including missing items or components) of the Goods or their failure to correspond with specification must (whether or not delivery is refused by you) be notified to the company within 5 days from the date of delivery.
Where a valid claim in respect of Goods delivered is notified to us within 5 days of the delivery date
- Reject the Goods and receive a full refund.
- Or have the Goods (or the part in question) replaced free of charge.
At Simple Lighting we always strive to deliver quality products and we want you to be delighted with your purchase.
However, for your peace of mind, if for any reason you are not happy with your purchase or you simply want to cancel your order you can do, as long as you notify us in writing by email or by letter. We will then email you a return authorisation form which must be completed and included with the return.
The policy works as follows;
- Return to us the items within 30 days of receiving your order. We will offer a full refund to you minus any postage costs incurred by you.
Any item must be returned within its original packing, unused. Meaning, you can take the product out of the box and check the item but you must not install the item.
Once we receive your order back into our warehouse we will refund your order back onto your chosen payment method within 7 days.
The only condition to this is that if the item purchased is not faulty it needs to be retail boxed, new and ready to sell to the next customer.
However, our full range of LED tapes is excluded from our usual 30-day return policy, this is because we cut the product to your requirements on order, therefore personalised to your requirements and the item could not be resold without financial loss to the company.
