  9. We will dispatch stocked items within 48 hours (excluding weekends and holidays) unless you choose Express Delivery at checkout. Stocked items for Express Delivery receive priority processing and will be dispatched the same working day we receive the order, provided the order is received before 11am, and will usually be delivered the next working day. Express Delivery orders received after 11am will be processed the following working day. We process and dispatch all other orders in the order that we receive them (subject to stock availability). If any of your ordered items are not in stock, we will advise you as soon as possible the date we expect them back in stock. 
    The maximum package weight for overseas shipment by standard post is 2kg. Size restrictions also apply to standard post so anything overweight or oversize will be sent by courier. Our webshop calculates the carriage cost purely using the item weight, however overseas freight couriers charge by volumetric weight which is calculated with a formula based on the package size. Our website therefore cannot accurately calculate this and we will contact you with the actual freight cost for your agreement and payment prior to sending the goods. We currently use Parcelforce and TNT for most shipments within the UK and abroad.
    If your package is unable to be delivered, except due to a mistake on our part, then the customer is liable for all additional costs including; return postage, storage fees and redelivery costs where they may apply.
  10. Goods are guaranteed to the extent of the guarantee (if any) of the manufacturers and these are offered, where available, in addition to your statutory rights. Claims under guarantee are limited to whatever amount (if any) is recoverable from the manufacturer under such guarantee. lf you wish to return any goods found to be defective please refer to sections 5 and 7 above. We cannot accept goods returned without proper authorisation.
  11. No property in or title to any goods shall pass to the customer or customer's agent unless or until the customer has made full payment of all monies to Citroen Classics.
  12. Citroen Classics cannot be held responsible for consequential loss or damage resulting from the improper use or fitting of any of their products sold by them. Goods are sold on the understanding that the person fitting them is competent to do so. We are not a school - we are a busy workshop and do not have time to teach you how to fix your car!
