In order to buy wine from us or use our web site you must do so according to these terms and conditions. By registering on the website or purchasing through it you are agreeing to be bound by them.
Slurp reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions by updating this page.
1 Sales and Delivery
We comply fully with our obligations under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000. For a copy of these please see this link.
1.1 Delivery - Delivery is £7.95 per daytime delivery regardless of how many cases you order. We will deliver your wine to anywhere in mainland UK. Delivery times are Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm. Most of our customers give us instructions to leave the wine in a safe place as this is by far the easiest way to ensure you get your wine on time. If it gets stolen, we will replace it free of charge (see 1.4 below). If you prefer to have the wine delivered to you in person, we will of course do so. If you are not there the driver will leave a card for you to arrange a more convenient delivery time. If we have not attempted to deliver your wine within seven days of you placing an order, then we will refund the delivery charge to your Slurp.co.uk account for you to offset against your next order, unless you insist on having the wine delivered to you personally and are out when the driver attempts delivery. Just to be clear, if the driver leaves a card because you are out, then this will count as an attempted delivery.
1.2 Availability - Wine is a product and which is subject to vintage changes. Whilst every effort will be made to supply the vintage ordered, in certain instances we reserve the right to supply an alternative vintage provided the quality is comparable and the cost is no greater to you. This clause does not apply to fine wine purchases.
1.3 Customer satisfaction - If you are dissatisfied with our performance in any way, please contact our customer services department immediately on 01295 672290.
At Slurp.co.uk, we aim to deal with all enquiries fairly, confidentially and quickly. We will acknowledge your contact within 24 hours. We try to resolve most issues immediately, but where this is not possible, we will keep you informed about progress until a satisfactory resolution has been achieved. We are continually improving our service, but if you have any particular ideas or suggestions about how we can improve, please send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org

2.3 Description and price of the goods. We make every effort to ensure that prices and descriptions of goods shown on our website are accurate at the time you place your order. The price of the goods will be as shown on the checkout page of our website when you placed your order. We will charge you this amount. You must also pay a delivery charge for the goods as indicated on our website at the checkout page. In the unlikely event that the price shown on the checkout page is wrong, and we discover this before accepting your order, we are not required to sell the goods to you at the price shown. We always try and ensure that the prices of goods shown on our website are accurate, but occasionally genuine errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of the goods that you have ordered we will let you know as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it.
