If after discussion, it was decided that Coast2coast Campers could re-use materials, cancellation of the order will only be accepted on condition that any costs, charges, and expenses already incurred, including any charges
that will be levied by a sub-contractor on account of their expenses, work or cancellation conditions will be reimbursed to the Company forthwith.

This estimated finish date may be subject to change due to factors beyond our control such as third-party stock availability, particularly in high season. We will endeavour to keep you informed of progress. Towards the end of a build, we will notify you of an estimated delivery date. We will use best endeavours to deliver by such date, but we do not guarantee time of delivery, and we shall not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by yourself through any reasonable or unavoidable delay in delivery howsoever caused.

7. WARRANTY FOR CONVERSIONS
7.1 All full conversions built by Coast 2 Coast Campers LTD come with a 12 month warranty with us. This is for the actual conversion only, not the vehicle itself. This warranty is a promise to you and is non-transferable to another person who may purchase the vehicle from you. This allows the customer to contact Coast 2 Coast Campers LTD to report any concerns. The warranty will not apply in relation to damage or faults which have
arisen due to unreasonable use of the vehicle or modifications made by you or a third party. You must bring any faults to our attention as soon as you become aware of them. Continued use where a fault is apparent may invalidate your warranty. As our parts come with warranty, we will ask you for proof of damage and may require pictures and part numbers and we will advise you on how to find these. We may need you to bring the vehicle to us for us to assess the damage.
7.2 We will endeavour to rectify any warranty issues as soon as reasonably possible. This work does have to be programmed into our schedule; therefore, we reserve the rights to refuse an unannounced drop in for work requested.
7.3 Following the 12 months, we can help to facilitate any repairs or faults, however, at this point will charge an hourly labour rate. Where parts used in the conversion that have a longer warranty, we will help liaise with other manufacturers to assist in the replacement or repair of these products. This may include putting you in touch with our suppliers. We are not liable if a parts manufacturer states that the parts or services are not covered under their warranties or if they deem any damage or faults to be caused by user error.
If you purchase a VW van from us, it will come with VW warranty if under three years of age and the responsibility of this warranty sits with VW and is subject to VW’s terms and conditions. If a vehicle is older than 3 years, an after-care warranty can be purchased separately.
