Terms & Conditions
Our Advice Service
We are here to help and can provide guidance, advice or even direct you
towards relevant information. If you have any queries relating to defibrillators for your home or business, please contact us on 0800 612 6304.
Although we will always endeavour to give you the best possible advice, the responsibility for ensuring that you are adhering to relevant legislation and best practice remains with you.
Customer Service Policy
We believe that you have a right to be given clear and unmistakable pricing information. We display both, VAT exclusive and inclusive prices, where possible. Our shipping charges are clearly displayed on every page and shown in the shopping cart the moment a product is placed in it.
Clear product information and additional technical support
We will always attempt to describe products in plain English in a condensed format to help you choose and compare products easily. On top of this we display, wherever possible, all technical data sheets, manuals and certifications to allow you to fully research the products displayed by us. The Defib Pad staff are trained to advise you on technical issues and are happy to assist you over the phone or by email. We strive to reply within one working day. For more complex products, we have introduced interactive technical help guides, which will break down the complex purchasing decisions into easy chunks and will guide you through the purchasing process.
Single point of contact
No customer wants to be passed around from one telephone operator to the next, so here at The Defib Pad we assign a personal point of contact from the first contact that we have with you. From that point, your advisor will be there to answer all queries and support you through the buying process. Our sales staff are trained to deal with all aspects of customer service. They will advise about products, take orders, deal with any complaints without passing you on to other staff members. Should a staff member not know the answer to your question, they will find out for you and will ring you back. They can also speak with the manufacturer on your behalf and let you know their answers. Should you wish to speak to a manager, they will of course transfer you to the relevant manager to deal with your query. All our staff have their own telephone numbers, so that you can always ring them directly if you want to follow up any discussion.
We would like to understand what you think of us. We therefore send a customer survey to every internet customer and reward our customers for their effort of filling in the survey by drawing a gift voucher every month. We follow the replies up daily and contact you if there is a clear indication that we should provide assistance to you. Our management team also meets weekly to go through all feedbacks and to follow up any comments with general solutions and activities. We monitor repeat customer and referrals as measures of customer satisfaction.
Support during buying process
We have a very user friendly one-step checkout. Our customer care staff will ring you if there is any problem with your order, be it that payment failed or that your goods are delayed. At that point you can also request changes to the order. We offer multiple payment options, including most payment cards, PayPal and cheques. Any personal data you pass to us is protected very carefully.
If you change your mind
If you change your mind, we offer twice the legal requirement for the returns period without quibbling. See also our Returns Policy.
We will always try to do everything right first time. Sadly, errors can still happen. If we make an error, we promise that we will do our best to rectify the situation as soon as possible. We will discuss the possible solutions with you and then agree the corrective actions together. We will also keep a record about what has been agreed in our customer database so that we can always continue our discussion with you at a later date should the need arise. Please notify us of any complaints by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help you. Your complaint will be treated confidentially. We will acknowledge your complaint within 5 working days and will advise you about the length of time it will take to resolve the complaint. We will also keep you informed throughout the process.
FREE Delivery on all Orders
We offer free delivery on all orders to any location in the UK. All orders containing a defibrillator will be shipped on a next working day service and orders for smaller items such as replacement pads and batteries will be shipped on an economy (2-3 working days) service. Special shipping upgrades are also available at an oncost.
- Goods that are ordered before 4:30pm will be dispatched the same day (on working days). Islands and remote locations, such as Northern Ireland, will usually NOT be delivered with a next day service. When you choose next day delivery during check-out for Islands and remote locations, the delivery method will be automatically changed by our system to courier (not next day) after entering the postcode.
- Economy service can take up to one week.
- Should we be out of stock of an item, we will inform you as soon as possible.
- Unfortunately, we cannot offer compensation for deliveries that are delayed.
- Customers living in remote areas should note that some delivery/servicing/installation services may be affected, or not available. We will inform you as soon as possible of any potential problems. If you want to check before placing an order, please call us on 0800 612 6304.
- If a customer is not in when delivery is attempted, the delivery driver will leave a card with details of the local depot. Please note that if the parcel cannot be delivered after several days and has to be returned, we reserve the right to charge you a second delivery charge for re-delivery, should you still wish to receive the product.
Payment and Security
We offer a range of payment options including Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard, Solo, Maestro, Visa electron, American Express, Google Checkout, PayPal and Proforma
All our credit card transactions handled by Sagepay, one of the market leaders in secure online transactions. The transfer of the purchase details from our website to Sagepay are
encapsulated using Sagepay's own encrypted and digitally-signed protocol. Any communication between the shopper and Sagepay is encrypted to the maximum
strength supported by the shopper's browser using 128 Bit encrypted sessions.
Shoppers are also protected from fraudulent use of their card in a "cardholder
not present" environment by their card issuers. The card issuer provides the
right for a shopper to dispute a transaction if the goods/services did not arrive
or if the card was used fraudulently.

- If goods are not returned in original packaging or re-sellable condition we will reduce the refund value to reflect that the product will have to be sold as incomplete or damaged.

- You need to return the goods to us at your cost within two weeks following your cancellation. Should the goods not be returned within these two weeks, we can offer to collect the goods and will then deduct the carrier charge of this return from your refund.
- If you do not require the ordered goods at the point of delivery and you refuse the delivery for this reason, we can deduct the cost for the return shipment from your refund.
- If you struggle to return large or heavy items, please contact us on 0800 612 6304 and we can offer collection of the goods. We will then deduct the cost for this collection from your refund. This service is only possible if the collection charges are less than the price paid by you for the product. Heavy items such as safes and collections from remote locations will have significant collection charges. Our staff will quote you a cost for collection based on your product and location.
- Products which are made to measureor to customer specification can not be returned and refunded.
- Important: Business orders placed with purchase orders are excluded from our returns procedure and are covered by statutory regulation.
