A deposit is required when you place your order.   This is usually 20%.   Alternatively, you may elect to pay for the product in full, in which case a prepayment discount of 5% is offered.

Your project brief may require interim payments linked to target milestones and these will be agreed with you at the outset by your SkillforSale representative.

Payment in full is required upon completion of the project and is payable before any final data or report is released.

If SkillsforSale are carrying out work for you on an ongoing or bespoke basis, monthly payment terms will be agreed as part of the initial Project Brief.

If you cancel before your project brief has been agreed and confirmed, your deposit will be refunded in full.

Under Distance Selling Regulations, you have a fourteen day cooling off period from the date of your purchase in which to cancel your order.   If you cancel within this period your deposit will be refunded in full unless work has already begun on your project, in which case your refund will be for the amount of your deposit less the cost of work carried out on your behalf.

If you cancel a project after 14 days, SkillsforSale will refund any monies due to you after taking into account an administration fee and the costs of any product or service so far supplied.   Your notice of cancellation must be received in writing with the reasons for cancellation.   You will be required to pay for work that has been carried out on your behalf up to and including the date upon which your notice of cancellation is received.

Yes.  Once the brief has been agreed, you will be contacted by your Adviser.   You may communicate directly with your Adviser by email, telephone or by skype.   Please bear in mind that Advisers may be working on other projects so the best point of contact for an immediate response to a query or concern is your Skills for Sale representative.

Usually, it is possible for projects to be delivered remotely.  If you particularly need your Adviser to come to site, please let your SkillsforSale representative know at an early stage so that she can allocate an Adviser to you within reasonable travelling distance of your location.

If you require an on-site visit, this can be arranged.  As a general guide on site visits by advisers are charged at £150 for a half day and £250 for a full day in addition to the cost of the products that you are purchasing.  This assumes a travel to site distance of less than 100 miles.

The products are designed with flexibility in mind and it is possible to mix and match products or part of products to suit your requirements.

SkillsforSale also offer a bespoke Consultancy service, which can be tailored precisely to your requirements.  If you think this is of interest, please email the Director .

SkillsforSale are committed to ensuring that you are completely satisfied with your products and services.  If something is not going according to plan or you have any concerns about the way the project is going, please let your SkillsforSale representative know as soon as possible.

Depending upon the nature of your complaint, it may be possible to assign a different adviser to continue the project or to update or change the brief.

Where it is not possible to agree upon a satisfactory way forward to complete the project, the project may be cancelled by mutual agreement.   Any monies due to SkillforSale will be payable upon cancellation.  Requests for cancellation in these circumstances will be dealt with by the Director.
