TRADE ACCOUNT USAGE
Although there may be multiple users per account, you will only see the details and orders associated with your email address. However, the primary contact on the account will be able to see all orders placed by all users for that account. Any order you place will go to your own email address. All users will have a shared credit limit for the account, which may affect what you can order at a given time.
After your account has been set up on the website and you try to login with your email address, you will be sent an automated email response asking that you create a new password. Once you create a new password you will be able to access your account.
DISCOUNT STRUCTURE & TRADE ACCOUNTS
Our standard pricing is available to the general public, which offers up to 10% discount on volume orders of selected brands such a composts & fertilisers. If a product has a discount structure this will be shown on the product page next to the price.
We also offer trade level discounts, above and beyond our standard discount structure with 30 days payment terms. If you are interested in a trade account then please use this form and we'll get back to you with our trade terms & conditions and application form.

HOW TO BUY
Making a purchase on our website is easy and straightforward. Please browse the site and add any items you wish to buy into your shopping basket. After you have finished shopping, just click on 'Checkout' and a pop up will appear asking you to sign in, create an account, checkout as guest or request a trade account. Unless you have a trade account with us then please select the 'Checkout as Guest' and enter an email address or 'Create an account' to open an online account (this online account has the same prices as Guest checkout). You will then be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete your order.
If you get asked to enter a 'Reference' then this refers to whether the address you're entering is home, work or other. This is for your own use and you can just put in NA (for Not Applicable) if you wish or any other note. This should only appear if you've previously put in a delivery address. This isn't used by us for your delivery.
You can go to the 'Basket' page and click the 'Calculate' next to the Delivery to work out the delivery cost to your postcode. This cost is based on order total weight and delivery location.

Our Sales Team will be delighted to hear from you to help with any queries or questions you may have.
We reserve the right to accept or decline any order placed on the www.ctsgardensupplies.co.uk website. After submitting an order, we will send you an order acknowledgement email with your order number and details of the goods you have ordered. Please note this email is an automated acknowledgement and is not an acceptance of your order. Order acceptance is confirmed when we send a full VAT invoice to the invoice / delivery address. This invoice is sent separately by post at the time of despatch.

SHIPPING AND HANDLING
Our intention is to keep our delivery costs to an absolute minimum.
Our standard delivery service is 1-3 working days for courier packages and 2-7 working days for courier pallets covering Mainland UK and the Scottish Highlands. Please note we do not ship outwith the mainland such as the Islands and / or Northern Ireland.
We will also not act as an indirect exporter, we won't ship to a UK address for forwarding onto addresses outwith the UK for VAT purposes.
Shipping price depends on order weight and delivery location. Orders via courier pallets are charged per pallet total weight.
We provide a pallet delivery service using our own transport covering a zone roughly bounded by the A85 in Scotland and A66 in England. Both courier package and pallets services outwith this region will be charged at our standard courier rates. Please see the Delivery Details page for more information.
Alternatively goods can be uplifted from our store in Kirkmuirhill, free of charge. Please select "Click & Collect" at checkout. For your reference our store is open 5 days a week Monday to Friday 8am to 4.30pm.
Where possible, we always endeavour to ship your orders the same day they are received as long as this is before 12pm lunchtime. We do not deliver at weekends.
You agree that proof of delivery supplied by our delivery company is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received.
