Accepting orders and security
We hold a huge range of products in stock for immediate delivery. Once the order is placed, the customer will be notified via e-mail of the confirmation and expected delivery date (see Delivery below).
Before we accept your order we may use the information you have given to us, or we already hold about you, or which we receive from any enquiry we may make to confirm your identity. This assists us to protect you and us from fraudulent transactions. More details of the steps we take to offer our customer's security can be found on the Security and Privacy page accessible from the Homepage. We reserve the right to decline your order, in which case you will be contacted to seek an alternative payment method. Please note accessories for goods are only available when purchased with the main item.

Customers are usually called within 48 hours after placing an order. If you have any queries or do not hear from us within 48 hours, please contact us on 020 8911 0333. We contact you for the following reasons:
1) Due to the technical nature of the products we sell, we contact you to establish whether you have the necessary accessories to connect your equipment to ensure hassle-free use of your purchase and optimise the performance of your product.
2) To confirm the delivery you require.
3) This is also a security measure we take for your protection to prevent fraudulent transactions.
We endeavour to deliver all items within the timescales given above, however, we are reliant on third party carriers and cannot be held liable for any delays and/or loss caused by a delay.
Delivery services listed above are for UK mainland delivery only. If you live within one of the following postcode districts or outside of the UK please email or telephone 020 8911 0333 for a delivery quotation:
BT, IM, PA, PH, IV, KW, HS, ZE, TR12, PO38, 39, 40, 41, GY
Please note we do not send goods outside of the UK or to BFPO addresses (Eire excluded).
On occasion goods are subject to availability and delay in delivery of goods is sometimes outside our control. We will inform the customer of a tentative delivery date. If the customer agrees to wait for delivery, we will keep the customer updated on the progress of their order. If the goods are not delivered within the agreed timescale, the customer will have the right to cancel the order and we will refund any money paid by you for the goods. Orders will be delivered on our behalf by one of our couriers and made between 8.00am - 5.30pm Monday - Friday. If a timed delivery is required (e.g. before 12.00pm, Saturday) we can arrange this for you but at extra cost.
Our courier companies are not insured to enter your house/premises and will, therefore, require your help (or another recipient) in handling any order in excess of 25kgs (generally televisions). Our couriers will only deliver goods to the ground floor. Please note that we shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused by a delay in delivering goods if we were not responsible for the delay.
In the unlikely event that your product appears lost or is damaged in transit please contact us immediately via email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone our Customer Service Department on 020 8911 0350. We strongly recommend you keep the original packing in case you have any reason to return your purchase. The reason for this is couriers will not pick up items unless they are packed adequately in the original packaging. Alternative packaging will be sufficient as long as it provides the same protection to the goods. Furthermore, when returning goods to the manufacturers they also insist on products being returned with all the original packaging otherwise they may reject the product. This will limit the amount of damage a product could endure through transportation.
If a delivery attempt has failed, other than the Couriers error, a failed delivery charge will occur. This is excluded if goods are refused, as there were obvious signs of damage through transit. This does not affect the consumer's statutory rights.
The customer must ensure that on all deliveries that there is a clear unrestricted passage for products to pass through. Heavy bulky goods such as fridge freezers or washing machines will only be delivered to the first entry point of the premises. Goods will not be passed through your residence/business unless there is clear access and the customer agrees that there is no liability held against the retailer for any walls/floors or fixtures or fittings that may be damaged. You can request the delivery drivers to assist you to move the goods to the point of rest at your own risk.
Please note that if you require your old appliance to be collected it must be fully emptied, disconnected and defrosted. We will not be held liable for any damages, leaks and spillages caused from the scrappage appliance upon removal from the premises.
We're sorry that adverse weather conditions may or could affect our delivery service
Shortages & Incorrect Goods
It is the customer's responsibility to sign for all packages as shown on the delivery consignment note. Any missing packages must be noted on the same consignment note before the driver leaves. It will be the customer's responsibility to notify PRC Direct of any shortages within 3 days of delivery.
Point of Delivery
If you have ordered a large TV (50 inches screen size and above) or large appliance (washer, dishwasher, refrigeration, cooker etc.), at the point of delivery you MUST unpack the goods and check for any physical damage. Any physical damages have to be noted on the driver’s delivery note before leaving and PRC must be notified by email immediately to email@example.com. If any physical damages are reported after the delivery and not noted on the driver’s delivery note, the customer will be responsible and PRC will NOT accept any returns. Therefore, it is very important you unpack the goods and check for any physical damages at the time of delivery. The driver can assist you to unpack the goods if required.
Damage in transit
If goods arrive in a damaged or unsatisfactory condition you must make a note on the couriers delivery consignment note. You don't have to open the item to inspect the goods inside. This applies to visual damage that can be seen on the outside only.
It will be your responsibility to inform us of any damages within 3 days of receipt of goods, as we need to inform the couriers used. Couriers will not accept claims made after 3 days. If goods returned under this clause are found to be perfect and in full working order they will be returned to you and an administration fee will be charged along with the cost of carriage to your credit card account. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.
The manufacturer guarantees all purchases for a period of 12 months unless stated, from the date of invoice. The guarantee excludes faults caused by accident, neglect or misuse by the customer. In addition, routine maintenance (cleaning of dirty audio/video heads etc), consumables (styli, plug fuses, cables, batteries, etc), cosmetic damage and tuning of channels are not covered. The full cost of service will be charged if no fault is found with your product.
If your product should fail within this period, our Customer Service Department will arrange for repair, either in your home (for non-portable products on UK mainland) or by a return to the manufacturer's authorised service agents. Customer Service Department can be contacted on 020 8911 0350 Monday - Friday 9.30am to 5.30 pm and Saturday 9.30am to 1.00pm.
For your peace of mind, we offer excellent value extended warranties from Domestic & General for a total of up to 5 years cover. The premiums for these warranties can be found on our product pages and an added benefit is the inclusion of accidental damage. You are covered by an insurance policy operated by Domestic & General Services Ltd. For terms and conditions on the Extended Warranties please click here.
Modified DVD & Blu-ray Players
Our Modified DVD players are compatible with most DVD titles currently sold. However, due to the immense variety of discs, we cannot guarantee all types of discs will be compatible. Any new software may need further modification for which an additional charge will be made. All modified DVD players will have a 12-month parts and labour guarantee provided by PRC as the manufacturer's guarantee will be void.
Cancellations & Returns
Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, you have the right to cancel your order within 14 days after receipt of the products which you may notify us in writing, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) of your intention to cancel the sale contract and return the goods.

We will not accept returns of the following items; Recording Media which have been opened (CDs, DVDs or Minidiscs) / goods which were advertised as 'SPECIAL ORDER' and specially ordered from the manufacturer for a customer's bespoke order, these are products we do not hold in stock and are specially ordered. It is your responsibility to return the unwanted items at your expense and risk. Returns will not be accepted without prior authorisation. The returns authorisation is valid for up to 14 days only. Goods sent back to us without prior authorisation will be returned back to you and the cost of delivery charged to your account.
PRC Direct will not accept cancellation of any orders where the item(s) purchased are not normally held in stock but have been specifically ordered at the request of the customer. A restocking fee will be applicable in such circumstances.

PRC Direct Price Guarantee
At PRC Direct we are continually monitoring our prices to keep ahead of our competitors. This takes some time due to prices changing constantly and therefore impractical for us to offer the best price always. However, if you find the same product cheaper, supplied by a UK authorised dealer, brand new boxed in stock, then we will try to beat the price by 10% of the difference previous to or at a time of purchase. This excludes any grey imports.
