Making a Purchase
To purchase products from the Website you must be 18 years of age or older and a resident of the United Kingdom.
To make a purchase simply browse through the products featured on the Website and click on the items that you wish to buy to add them to your shopping basket. Please note that all bicycles listed for sale on the Website are manufactured to UK legal and regulatory requirements and are intended for use in the UK only. If you intend to use a bicycle purchased from the Website in a territory other than the UK please ensure you comply with any local requirements, which may differ to those in the UK.
Due to the limited availability of our products, we restrict the number of bicycles you can purchase from the Website to two per customer and/or per delivery address in any six-month period. From time to time, we may place further restrictions on the number of Special Edition products that you can purchase. Any such restrictions will be stated on the relevant product page. Any orders that exceed these limits will be cancelled and refunded.
After you have finished shopping, click on ‘Checkout Now’ and you will be asked to log in or create a personal account before providing additional details that we need to satisfy your order.
Once your order has been received, we will issue you with an order number by email. This order number is supplied for reference purposes only and does not constitute our acceptance of your order.
Your order is an offer by you to purchase the product(s) ordered from us. Our acceptance of your order will take place only when we dispatch the products that you ordered from us and our acceptance will only relate to the products dispatched and not any other products included in your order. We may refuse to accept or fulfil any order in our absolute discretion. If payment is taken before products are dispatched and the order is subsequently not accepted in full, the payment will be refunded for any elements of the order that are not accepted.
Price and Payment
The price of our products and our delivery charges will be as quoted on our Website from time to time, except in the case of obvious error. All prices are displayed in Pounds Sterling inclusive of UK VAT where applicable. Our VAT number is GB646228334.
Our Website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that some of the products listed on the Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that where a product’s correct price is less than the stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the product to you. If a product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on the Website, we will either contact you for instructions before dispatching the product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide any product to you at an incorrect price.
Please note that all products that you order through the Website will remain the property of Brompton until we have dispatched them and received payment in full from you for those products.
Payment may be made by debit or credit card, through finance or such other methods as listed on the Website checkout page when placing an order. For full information and terms of finance please click here. If for any reason any payment is refused after we have dispatched any product(s) we will have the right to request the payment from you or recover the relevant product(s). We may charge you for any costs incurred by us in recovering the product(s) or seeking further payment.
