Terms & Conditions
Please note don't price match with Amazon, eBay and other auction sites. We do try and keep our products as low as possible, but if you do see any products lower then please let us know and we will try our best to price match if not beat the price for you, companies must be based within the UK in order for us to price match. Products must be in stock and will only be on a like for like basis only.
Please understand due to the specialist packaging methods we use for our glass aquariums sent via courier, we are unable to price match on these items. Many other online retailers do not package the tanks in the same nature as ourselves and therefore do not have the same costs, however in order to keep breakages to a minimum and to provide the best service we have found this to be the best solution for our customers.
Our terms and conditions comply with UK legislation, including the new distance selling regulations and are designed to ensure that all of our customers can shop easily and with confidence with CompleteAquatics.co.uk. The use of this site indicates your acceptance of these terms and conditions. We are not responsible to you if you are unable to access our internet service for any reason that is beyond our control.
Returns & Cancellations:
The Consumer Contracts Regulations gives you the right to cancel an order and return or exchange any goods bought from Complete Aquatics within 14 days from when you receive them. Please notify us of any cancellations within 14 days. A cancellation form is available upon request should you require one.
Please take your time when choosing any goods from Complete Aquatics. The return of any unwanted goods will be at your, the customers, expense and must be in an unused, undamaged condition together with such documentation necessary to enable us to identify you as the purchaser of the goods. All returned goods must be received within 14 days after confirmation has been given to return them. Any non-faulty or undamaged goods which arrive in either a damaged or non-resale condition will not be considered for a full refund, full exchange or credit.
Until we receive the goods, you are responsible for the condition and any damage which occurs to the goods. You should obtain a proof of postage for the goods so that in the event of the goods becoming lost you have a proof you returned it. Once we have received the goods, we will refund the purchase price (less any original carriage charges) immediately, or in any case within 30 days.
Upon arrival do not sign and accept delivery if there is any indication of damage caused to your goods.
For your convenience, you can bring any returned or damaged / faulty goods to our retail store Aquahome Aquatic Centre in Leyland. Our staff will try our best to help and assist you although please understand Aquahome is running separately to Complete Aquatics and therefore any prices on our website cannot be matched in-store and visa versa.
Damaged / Faulty Goods:
Damaged / Faulty goods must be returned within 14 days after confirmation is given. Complete Aquatics will arrange all collections from UK mainland (other regions we may require the customer to send at own cost) for damaged or faulty goods free of charge which may be either a DPD collection or we may supply a free post address. We require all returns to be returned together with such documentation necessary to enable us to identify you as the purchaser, We also need written instructions or emailed instructions on the nature of the damage or fault.
We will inspect the goods, and in the event that they are in fact damaged / faulty, we will repair or replace them at our absolute discretion. Due to the large range of goods we supply, it may be necessary to send the goods back to the manufacturer for an expert assessment on the alleged damaged/faulty.
If the manufacturer tests the goods and deems them NOT faulty or damaged, they will be returned to you at an additional cost to cover postage and packaging. Some high-end products may not be replaced if found faulty/damaged but repaired, this is done at the manufactures absolute discretion.
Complete Aquatics does not accept liability for any consequential loss caused by damaged or faulty items, delay in dispatch or delays by couriers.
As with all aquariums from all manufacturers, we highly recommend installing your glass aquarium on a purpose-built aquarium stand or cabinet the same size or larger than the footprint of the aquarium, if you do not install on a purpose-built aquarium stand or cabinet, this will void your warranty (same with all glass tank manufacturers)
