All products are delivered Ex. Works.

EX works, means that you as customer pay freight, insurance and possible handling fee. From DPH's offer freight cost and other delivery costs will be listed.

AnchorDelivery in general

Whenever DPH mentions "time of delivery", we talk about the time when the goods are dispatched from our address. The time when the consignment is delivered at your address can vary considerably depending on the type of forwarding and depending on the destination.

AnchorIf you need the goods for a certain date

We recommend that you make your order in due time. At the same time please advise us about your deadline of reception.

This enables DPH to give the best possible estimate, whether we are able to deliver the goods within the deadline or not. We will of course revert as soon as possible informing you about the options.

AnchorDelivery from stock

Stock goods are goods, which DPH have confirmed in writing that we have in stock.

Dispatch of stock goods usually takes place immediately (within 1-3 days) upon receiving your order-confirmation and payment. Concerning bigger consignments the time of delivery may be a bit longer.

AnchorDelivery of commissioned goods - Non-stock products

Commissioned goods are goods, that DPH does not have in stock.

Therefore we depend upon delivery from others. Concerning commissioned goods our indication of delivery time should always be considered as an estimate only.

Predicting an accurate time of delivery on goods that have not even been ordered from the manufacturers or maybe have not been produced yet, can be impossible to DPH . Some old collectibles we even have to find among private collectors.

DPH Trading can make reservations on delivery of given orders or part of it.

Part-deliveries may take place. DPH aim to inform you if a delivery is split-up.

AnchorDelivery delay on stock products

If a product despite the fact that we have confirmed it to be in stock, has erroneously not been dispatched on time you can cancel your order.

In commercial deals (B2B) items cannot be returned unless agreed.

AnchorRight to cancel orders: Satisfaction guarantee on e-trade

Valid only for sale directly to consumers.

At DPH Trading the basic idea is that a deal is only a good deal if both buyer and seller are satisfied.

Therefore we are most meticulous in our quality control and the packing of our products prior to dispatch.

Should you, however, receive products that do not live up to your expectations, you have as an e-customer at DPH Trading, the option of cancelling your purchase provided you act within 14 days from the receipt of the articles.

Cancellation of a part of the order

If you have bought more items from us, you have the option to return one or more, eventhough it was bought as a single order.

DPH Trading will, of course, return your payment (handling-fee, freight and insurance excepted).

We kindly ask you to contact us before returning the product(s). Because of our many years of trading experience, we are in most cases able to help you avoid unnecessary expensive freight and insurance costs when returning the product(s) - by choosing the right forwarder.

AnchorNo right of withdrawal for custom-made products

The option of regretting your purchase does not apply if products are obtained by special request by you, i.e the product/s in question have been ordered, manufactured or found for you specifically whether it be directly from the manufacturers or from private collectors.

AnchorReturning goods

Products have to be returned in the same condition as they were received.

You have to be aware, that if the product was delivered in the original packing and with original certificates or the like, it must be returned in original packing and with original certificates etc. as these are an important part of the value of the product when the items are considered antigues or art.

Please note! Goods returned under the terms of cash on delivery (COD) will not be considered returned.

AnchorIf you regret your purchase please return the goods to:

DPH Trading
Løkkegravene 49
DK 5270 Odense N

You can also regret your purchase by refusing reception or returning it in person at the above mentioned address.

AnchorFor transport damage, defect or similar

If the product upon receipt has suffered damages during transport or has defects or flaws, we ask you for insurance reasons, not to return the goods until you have contacted DPH Trading.

You give up your rights to indemnification, if damaged products are returned without our written acceptance.

AnchorTransport insurance

We send a lot of products, and unfortunately we cannot avoided that some articles are damaged. If that happens to your order it is important that you pay attention to the following:

  • Any complaint has to be made immediately after receiving the consignment.
  • No damaged goods can be returned without prior agreement.
  • For insurance purposes we need to know immediately whether you think a possible damage or defect is due to damages during transport or if the damage has other causes.

As our sales- and delivery-terms are ex works (outside Denmark), the responsibility of the product is passed on to you as receiver from the moment the consignment is dispatched from our address. For you to avoid this risk we insure the goods (if nothing else mentioned) before the goods are forwarded to you. The insurance-costs are included in the freight-cost offered by us.

AnchorIf your give us special delivery instructions.

If you give us special delivery instructions, like your order must be delivered in your garage or the like. Please be aware of the fact that you might loose the right to claim any transport damage or loss of the parcel.

If, for example, you ask us to write on the shipping documents that the package can be delivered in your garage, and thereby gives the carrier the opportunity to deliver to you - without your signature - it is no longer possible to claim for transport damage or lost item (s).

Naturally in some cases compensation can be given after all, however the transport company is allowed to say that the parcel has been delivered in good shape, and therefore you renounce the right to have compensation.

AnchorWhat does the insurance cover?

The insurance covers transport damages on the purchased articles.

The insured amount is the total invoice-amount including freight, insurance and possible handling fee.

All other expenses are not covered. This applies to customs duty, fees, other possible duties or taxes applied by the authorities in your country - beyond our influence.

AnchorIf the damage is done?

If the damage is done DPH will help you.

It is very important that you contact DPH Trading immediately after finding that the product(s) are damaged during transport.

If you want to claim compensation for transport damages it is important that the parcel is kept in the exact same condition as when arriving at your address. That includes the product(s) as well as the wrapping.

Prior to approving an indemnification the insurance companies often demand their right to inspect the consignment. For that reason it is important that the parcel is kept in the exact same condition as when arriving at your address.

You forfeit the rights of receiving an indemnification if the consignment is returned without prior agreement with DPH Trading. When a transport damage has been reported to us, please await our written instructions on what to do with the parcel.

Provided it is possible DPH will do our utmost to find an identical article to replace the damaged one and forward it to you without any costs to you.

Whenever it is not possible to find the proper replacement we will make sure that the compensation is credited your account.

If you wish the compensation cashed, we will immediately transfer the amount.

AnchorIf the product is damaged - and it is not transport-damage

When shopping at dphtrading.com you have 24 months for complaints.

The complaint has to be reasonable and flaws or defect must not have arisen because of faulty use of the product or by damaging conduct.

We meticulously check all products prior to forwarding them, but it is human to err, and unfortunately it is impossible to avoid. DPH undertake to rectify all essential defects, due to design-, material- or production, by making repairs or replacing the product, depending on the product in question.

AnchorHelp and repair

Upon receiving the notice of defects and flaws, DPH will, without groundless respite rectify the problem. The repair can take place at the buyers premisses, unless DPH consider that returning the product or parts of the product would be expedient. We will then be able to replace or repair the faulty product in our own workshop, or replace it with a flawless item.

In the case DPH does not fulfil our obligation of rectifying, and if certain defect are substantial, the buyer can cancel the part of the agreement which includes the faulty product, by written advise to DPH.

Except from the right to demand rectification, you as the buyer have no other demands due to possible defects in the product. The seller has the right to credit and refund the sales amount for the faulty product to the buyer if the product is no longer in stock, or if the seller judge, that a repair would be to costly. DPH can demand that a damaged article is returned before refunding the sales amount.

Products can be returned to:

DPH Trading, Loekkegravene 49, DK-5270 Odense N, Denmark

AnchorTransportation advice

AnchorForce majeure

DPH reserves the rights to cancel an order or parts of it, if we experience difficulties in supplying because of war, mobilization, political unrest, strikes, lock-outs, terrorist attacks,natural disasters, difficulties of transportation, absence of delivery from the manufacturers or other conditions beyond our control.

AnchorProduct liability

DPH Trading is only responsible for personal injury, when it has been proven that the injury was caused by error or neglect committed by DPH Trading or others, for whom DPH are responsible.

DPH is not responsible for damage done to real estate or personal property, occurring while the product is in the buyers possession. Neither is DPH responsible for damages to products made by the buyer "himself" or products in which these take part. Just as DPH is not responsible, when a product is being used for something besides its purpose. DPH Trading is responsible for damages to real estate and personal property under the same terms as for personal injury.

We are not responsible for operational loss, lost earnings or other indirect losses. To the extent that DPH might be enjoined product liability to third party, it is the duty of the buyer to keep DPH indemnified to the same extent as DPH's responsibility is limited according to above three paragraphs.

Should third party make a demand on any of the parties, to indemnify according to this point, the respective party is obliged to inform the other party in this regard.

DPH Trading and the buyer are mutually committed to be sued at that court or court of arbitration, trying the demand of indemnification - made to either party - on grounds of a damage allegedly caused by the material.

AnchorSale on credit and conditional sale

If sale on credit has been agreed, it will be on the following terms: If payment is not made on time, the seller is entitled to charge a 2 per cent default interest or a minimum of DKK 25,00 per month commenced, as well as a reminders fee of DKK 50,00 per follow up letter. Interest and reminders fee is charged from the date the payment was due. The delivered articles remain the seller's property until the payment is fully settled.
