Information

About us

Thank you for visiting Gendan Automotive Products.
Gendan Limited is a UK-based company specialising in high-tech car diagnostic tools and systems. We are located in Swansea, South Wales.
We are a growing internet-based business aiming to provide professionals and home-users alike with a wide (and growing) range of advanced diagnostic products.

Good value, fast service

We pride ourselves in offering an ever-expanding choice at good value, and in ensuring that products reach you quickly.
How often do you order from mail-order or internet companies, only to find that your products will take 28 days to arrive? If products are in stock, they normally leave us on the same working day. We offer several shipping options at the checkout, and show you when we'd expect your order to arrive.

We also don't try to hide any postage/packaging costs from you, as many websites do - all of our product pages show the price you pay including delivery and VAT. There will be no surprise extras to pay when you place your order. We also do not add any credit/debit card surcharges.

Ordering from us

As we are a mail-order and internet business, we are set up to accept orders online or by phone.
If you are concerned about ordering online, or would feel happier talking to one of us before placing an order, please call us on any weekday between 9:30am and 5:30pm. You can reach us on 01792 588002.

Our team

We are a small team, but between us we have a great deal of business and automotive diagnostic experience.

Terms & Conditions of Sale (T&Cs):

T&Cs: Shipping, postage and packing

We currently only ship goods to addresses in the United Kingdom.
Our product prices include shipping to UK addresses.

Where products are in stock, and orders are placed before our shipping cut-off times, the order will normally be shipped same working day.
We give you an indication of when the cut-off time is once you select a shipping option in the basket.

We offer a variety of delivery services, depending on the weight and value of the products, one of which will always be free.
In general the free service is Royal Mail 2nd Class post for items under £30, 1st Class for items under £100 and a next working day courier service for more expensive items.
Next working day items are usually sent by DPD or Royal Mail Special Delivery, depending on the type of product and the delivery destination.

If you select an upgraded shipping service at the checkout, we will send your order by that service (or by an equivalent or better service if the service you select is not available to your delivery address).
In most cases, a signature is required on delivery.

If the courier is unable to deliver your order, they will either attempt to deliver to a neighbour, attempt to redeliver the following day, leave a card for you to rearrange a suitable time for redelivery or leave the parcel at your local Post Office / courier depot for you to collect.

We reserve the right to alter the postage and packing costs on any order - we will however notify you if we do so, before processing your order.

    Card details are encrypted using 128-bit SSL connections, and Sage Pay are fully PCI-DSS compliant.

When placing your order, you can select the payment method to use.

T&Cs: Returns information

General

Returns can only be made by prior agreement with Gendan Limited.

Any product returned to us must be returned with all associated items originally sent as part of the product and in the same packaging, unless otherwise agreed with Gendan Limited.

You should return any product to us via a suitably insured means based on the value of the product. You should retain any receipt confirming the return. If returned products are lost we will not be liable for them.

Software can only be returned if the seal on the product is completely intact. In the case of downloaded software, the software must not have been activated, or activation codes requested.
The only exception to this is if the product is faulty or misdescribed. Should this be the case, please contact us.

Unwanted Goods - within 14 days of delivery

Orders placed on or after June 13th 2014 are covered by the 'The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013' (which replace the Distance Selling Regulations).

These regulations give you a 14-day 'cooling-off period', beginning the day after your order is received.
Within this 14 day period, you have the right to cancel and return the order without penalty, subject to the following conditions:
  • The regulations allow you to inspect your purchase to the same extent as you would be able to in a shop, before deciding whether to keep it. They do not entitle you to use the product.

  • The product(s) must be returned to us complete, un-used, and in as-new condition.

  • If the products are returned complete and unused, we will refund your original purchase price including the basic (free) shipping option. We are not required to refund any charges for shipping upgrades selected at the time of purchase.

  • The customer is responsible for the costs associated with returning the order to us.

  • If a product has been used, we have the right to deduct a reasonable amount from the refund to reflect the reduction in resale value of the product.

  • We supply some products in a clear (transparent), sealed plastic bag, to allow them to be inspected as if in a shop, while guaranteeing they are not used. If such a product is returned once the bag has been opened, it will be considered used (even if there are no visible signs of damage), and so a reasonable proportion of the value will be deducted from the refund.

  • In the case of products which cannot be re-sold once they have been used (e.g. car oxygen sensors and ignition coils), if the product is returned once the sealed bag has been opened, we have the right to deduct 100% of the product value from the refund, as the returned part has negligible resale value. These products will have a warning label regarding this attached to the bag.

  • Products supplied digitally (e.g. software downloads) are covered by the regulations, however the regulations stipulate that we must not begin supply (i.e. provide activation codes) for a digital product purchase until 14 days after the purchase has been made - essentially bypassing the cooling-off period.
    By requesting activation details for a digital purchase within the 14 day period, you acknowledge that you waive your right to cancel under the regulations.

  • Should you wish to cancel your order within the cooling-off period, we have a standard cancellation form including instructions available here (pdf format).
    There is also an HTML-based version of the form itself here.
    You may use this to inform us of your decision to cancel within the 14-day period.

  • After contacting us for a return, please wait for a reply. We will issue you with an RMA number, to ensure your return is tracked correctly when we receive it.

  • If you decide to return your order, you must return it to reach us no later than 14 days after you inform us of your intention to return, or 14 days after we issue you with an RMA number, whichever is the later.

  • Should the product(s) supplied be faulty or incorrectly supplied, different regulations apply. See the "Damaged, Defective or Faulty Goods" section below.

Unwanted Goods - more than 14 days after delivery

We are not obliged to accept the return of an unwanted good after the 14-day cooling-off period mandated by the Consumer Contracts Regulations has expired - we are entitled to accept returns at our discretion. Contact us to find out if this is possible for your case.

Any goods returned must be unopened and in a re-saleable condition, and will be subject to a minimum administration and handling fee of 20% of the invoice value. You will be responsible for the cost of safe carriage back to us.

Postage and packing costs are non-refundable.

Damaged, Defective or Faulty Goods

Gendan Limited will repair or replace any product that has failed in normal usage as long as the product has been used as intended and does not, on examination, display any signs of misuse.

Should we attempt to repair the product and find that no inherent manufacturing fault exists, we will return the product to you and charge you 20% of the product's selling price to cover the cost of the testing process.

If you are dissatisfied with the quality of the goods or the goods are damaged or wrongly supplied, you must give written notice to Gendan Limited within 7 working days of delivery. We will arrange as our option to refund or replace the goods.

Should you need to return a product due to an error on our part we will exchange or refund the product for you. We will also refund any reasonable associated carriage costs.

WEEE information

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.

The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.

Recycling reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.

Gendan Limited is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.

Customers must return their like-for-like WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.

Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.

For further information on our WEEE and environmental policies, please click here.
