Overlander Policies and Procedures

4. Order Processing

4.1 Credit Card Orders

4.1.1 Overlander accepts most major credit and debit cards as payment, including American Express, on orders shipping to anywhere in the world. When using your credit card, please provide your credit card billing address if different from the shipping address and daytime phone numbers. If the billing address or security code does not match that which is on file at the financial institution or if authorisation is not given for any reason, we reserve the right to cancel the order without notification. We cannot work out credit card problems with the financial institution; you must settle problems with them and reorder once the problem is resolved. Repeated attempts to authorise your credit card on the same order may result in an additional charge. We do not assume any responsibility for bank fees incurred by using a Debit Card for your purchase and/or return credit.

4.2 PERSONAL CHEQUE POLICY

4.2.1 While we attempt to bank-approve personal cheques for immediate shipment, this may not always be possible and we may hold your order for 10+ business days. To ensure that your order is shipped as quickly as possible, please send a Postal money order, or use your credit card. Customers whose cheques are returned to us because of insufficient funds will be charged £12.00 for handling in addition to the amount of the cheque. If it becomes necessary for us to use a Solicitor or collection agency, you will be responsible for all collection fees.

4.3 PURCHASE ORDERS

4.3.1 We accept most institutional purchase orders (military, government, schools and universities). You can either FAX or mail your P.O. A simple application for purchase order customers must be filled out and approved before we can process your order. We cannot accommodate all special shipping requests. Please inquire before placing your order.

4.4 PARENTAL VERIFICATION OF ORDERS

4.4.1 New customers under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian present to verify any order placed by phone before an order will be processed. Also, our phone representatives may limit the length of inquiry calls.

4.5 INTERNATIONAL ORDERS

4.5.1 All payments must be in the form of Pounds Sterling (£). Under no circumstances will we falsify invoices or shipping labels. Customer is responsible for any applicable taxes, duties or custom fees. Inquiries regarding possible fees should be directed to your local authorities. Refused packages will affect your return credit. See Credits and Balance dues.

4.5.2 Please send payment in the form of an International Money Order in Pounds Sterling (£), or use your credit card. Please do not request that we falsify invoices or suppress tariff codes or country-of-origin information.

4.6 BACKORDERS

4.6.1 We 'backorder' out-of-stock goods whenever possible, unless you specify that you do not want an item backordered. Certain sale goods, products with uncertain availability, and discontinued items may not be backordered. We only charge our shipping charge once per order and will not charge you twice for orders containing backorders. Backorders shipped to international addresses, will incur special shipping charges with each shipment. We will only ship back orders via an 'express' method at the customer's request. We do not assume back orders are to be dispatched 'express shipping' when requesting express for in-stock goods. Backorders shipped at our expense will be shipped via the most economical carrier.

4.7 QUESTIONS ABOUT RECENTLY PLACED ORDERS

4.7.1 If you have placed an order with Overlander recently and need some information about it there are a number of ways to contact us. Please note that since we begin processing your order immediately after receiving it, we are unable to make changes or cancel the order once it is placed. Once your order invoices, it has entered our dispatch process and cannot be changed or canceled.

4.8 CREDITS AND BALANCE DUES

4.8.1 Some pre-approved returns that fall outside of policy may be limited to goods credit only. Any credit not redeemed nor refunded within a one-year period will be assessed a service charge fee. Any outstanding balance dues will be applied to your next order. We cannot give credits for goods unless we have proof of receipt. Any charges Overlander incurs as a result of a refused shipment, will be adjusted from the return credit.

4.8.2 Any credits left on your account with us can be used toward a future order. At your request, we will issue a refund cheque for any outstanding credit on your account generated by an order paid for by cheque or money order. If the order was paid by credit card, we will credit your credit card account. We will only credit the original credit card used on the order. If you no longer have that credit card, you will need to contact the issuing bank to work out arrangements. We may be able to assist you in obtaining the bank's phone number. There are a number of ways to contact us.

5. Returning Goods

5. Returning Goods

5.1 General Returns

5.1.1. The Goods usually come with a manufacturer’s warranty (usually 12 months). The scope of the warranty will usually cover manufacturing defects but not damage cause by crashing, abuse, water ingress or general wear and tear, or if Goods have been misused, altered or repaired without our approval. You may contact us in the first instance and we will usually inspect the Goods and may be able to deal with your query through a phone call or email. You should not make any further use of Goods where you discover a defect as this may affect your rights under the manufacturer’s warranty. Any Goods which need to be returned for these purposes should always be clean and not covered in dirt. You should also complete any warranty card details to claim under a manufacturer’s warranty and provide a copy of your receipt together with a note detailing the problem and the reason for the return.

5.1.2. If the Goods have been purchased through a 3rd party retailer as opposed to through Overlander directly you should make reasonable efforts initially to return the goods directly to the relevant retailer that you purchased the goods from.

5.1.3. You should inspect the products when you receive them for defects or damage. Items delivered by courier which are clearly damaged on delivery must be signed for as such or refused and returned to us.

5.1.4. Where Goods have been damaged in transit but we are not immediately notified, please let us know as soon as possible and in any event within 7 days of the day on which you received the damaged item. All such damaged Goods should be returned to us, should be in their original packaging (even if damaged) and must not be used or fitted (as appropriate). You should also provide a copy of your receipt and avoid attaching postage labels or similar to the packaging directly. Please wrap Goods to be returned first, before attaching labels.

5.1.5. If we have dispatched an incorrect item, we will make an exchange and pay agreed costs of returning the item. For large or valuable items, please contact us in the first instance and we will arrange a courier instead where we feel this is appropriate.

5.1.6. Non-delivery of an Order needs to be reported to us within 7 working days of the date of dispatch. If an item is lost in transit, we may not dispatch a replacement immediately. Resent or replacement items will be dispatched at our discretion or subject to availability, once all tracking and investigative avenues have been exhausted. This may include waiting up to 30 days from dispatch for undelivered mail to be returned to us, depending on the delivery country.

5.1.7. If we do not find any fault or defect then your cancellation and refund rights are limited to the initial 14 day cancellation period though this does not affect your statutory rights.

5.1.8. You must take good care of the Goods while they are in your possession. If you fail to do so and the value of the Goods reduces as a result of how they are handled prior to return to us and where you have caused the damage, as opposed to that damage being caused in delivery, then we reserve our right to withhold that amount which may otherwise have been due to you.

5.1.9. If you return Goods either because you believe they are faulty or because you change your mind, we ask that Goods you return require a form of proof of posting and some form of tracking. Overlander will not be held responsible for any goods that are mislaid in the postal system or in transit to us.


5.2.Distance Selling Regulations:

5.2.1.1. Under the terms of the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2014, you have the right to cancel your purchase agreement with Overlander Batteries provided that you give written notice of your intent to cancel within seven working days from the day after that on which you receive the goods.

5.2.1.2. Overlander Batteries must refund your money within 14 days of receiving the written notice of cancellation.

5.2.1.3. If you cancel the agreement, you must ensure that you take "reasonable care" of the goods supplied and return them to Overlander Batteries at your own expense.

5.2.1.4. Overlander Batteries will not pay for or refund the cost of returning the goods.

5.2.2 When Distance Selling Regulations Do Not Apply:

5.2.2.1 We will accept goods for return that were purchased from Overlander within 14 days of receipt. The goods must be in new and unused condition and in its original packaging. We do not accept returns via COD or any other collection method. COD packages will be refused. Packages billing Overlander without authorisation will result in actual shipping charges billed back to sender unless other prior arrangements were made. There is no restocking fee for qualified returns. Mounting and running a motor, charging or cycling rechargeable batteries, installing radio parts in a model, cutting up balsa sheets in kits, installing software or discarding the packing material are some examples of what constitutes used goods.

6. Despatch

6.1 Overlander uses a variety of parcel carriers, we reserve the right to choose the carrier and are unable to accommodate requests for preferred carriers. Once the order has dispatched, we must allow the carrier a reasonable time frame to deliver. Overlander and/or the carrier reserve the right to request a signature for proof of delivery.

6.2 We cannot demand a parcel carrier to leave a package. Once the package is successfully delivered, we are not responsible for theft or damage to the goods. When using a forwarding company, we are not responsible for lost or damaged goods after the forwarding company has accepted delivery. The forwarding company must report shipping damage for a claim to be filed. We are not responsible for delays in express delivery orders due to weather conditions and/or attempted deliveries. Export documentation will not be provided. Know who you are receiving a package form or forwarding a package to! If you accept a package that was purchased with a fraudulent credit card, you will be in possession of stolen goods. You may be responsible for any legal or collection action related to the shipment.

7. Limits of Liability

7.1 We accept no responsibility for crash damage and/or loss of kits, motors, accessories, etc. incurred during operation of a radio-controlled model. In most cases it is very difficult or impossible to determine whether crash damage was actually due to radio equipment failure or to operator error. Also, we cannot be held responsible for any purchased components that are incorporated into radio systems or problems caused by incompatibility between radio components, parts, and repairs not completed by the appropriate manufacturer's authorised repairer, etc.

7.2 It is impossible to guarantee product compatibility for product recommendations. We provide information and suggestions to the best of our abilities based on the information available to us at the time. We are unable to guarantee successful outcomes.

7.3 Model airplane performance claims typically apply to density altitudes under 3,000 feet above sea level. If you will be flying your aeroplane above this, additional considerations such as motor power, choice of propeller and aircraft weight should be taken into consideration.

7.4 Additional policies may exist. Policies are not limited to those on this page. Call Sales/Customer Service with any questions.
