Changes to these terms
You acknowledge you are entering into contract for the supply of goods between you and TankTopper. By acknowledging this you warrant that you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts, that you are at least 18 years old and a resident in the UK. By submitting your desired type of fuel, quantity and postcode via our website or by phone you will receive a quote, should the quote meet your requirements you are then able to submit an order to confirm that purchase of fuel.
By submitting an order on our site or by phone you fully accept to buy fuel from us subject to our acceptance. Once accepted an email confirmation will be sent agreeing details of the agreed transaction. This will act as the Contract in reference to the agreed supply of fuel as detailed in the email confirmation. For any queries, please retain the email confirmation as reference in your records.
The email confirmation details the price and the estimated delivery date which acts as an order confirmation. At this point a contract is made between TankTopper and you, the Customer, to purchase the indicated volume of goods on the terms stated in this document.
We may withdraw a quote or change the price at any time prior to acceptance. A quote or price is not an offer from us and cannot be accepted.
When placing an order you MUST ensure that you provide sufficient information regarding specific delivery conditions or requirements at your property.
Cancelling or amending an order
Should you wish to cancel a fuel order you must contact us as soon as possible or at least by 12pm on the last working day prior to delivery.
If a fuel order should be cancelled for any reason then payment for all stock to which we are committed is to be made in full should you fall outside of the stipulated timescale for cancellation.
You can cancel an order for Goods (including Fuels in barrels but excluding other Fuels) within 14 days beginning on the day after you received the last of the Goods in your order, if the Goods have not been tampered with; by contacting us by phone, by email or in writing at our registered address.
If you cancel an order for Goods (other than Fuels), we will reimburse to you all payments received from you including the costs of delivery (except for any additional cost arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive we offer). We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any Goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you. You must return any cancelled Goods you have received to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you tell us you want to cancel. The deadline is met if you send back the Goods before the 14 days has expired. You will have to bear the direct cost of returning any Goods. Where Goods cannot be returned by post we will confirm return charges before entering the contract with you.
We will repay you without unnecessary delay and within 14 days after the day we receive back from you any Goods supplied; or if earlier, 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the Goods. If you have not yet paid for your cancelled order, then we will simply not charge you for it.
Where we repay you, we will use the same method of payment you used to pay and we will not charge you any fees to repay you.
Title and risk
The liability for the goods lies with you, the customer from the time of delivery (i.e at the point when the fuel leaves a partners vehicle or container.)
Ownership of the fuel to you, the customer is passed on delivery of the fuel to your storage tank.
We record the delivery date, quantity and description of the Fuels delivered to you, and that record shall, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, be deemed to be conclusive proof of the date of delivery, the volume and type of Fuels delivered.
If for any reason the customer suspects the goods are damaged or not delivered as agreed with the order, you must write to tell us within 7 days of delivery or the expected delivery time. You must then allow for and make access available for TankTopper or its registered partner to inspect the goods.
Price and payment
Prices are updated throughout the day. Should a price be quoted to you in error as a result of a fault within our system, we will be entitled to cancel the order informing you that this is the case, we will also give you the opportunity to receive an immediate refund or place an alternative order at the correct price.
The price quoted (Unless otherwise agreed) is only valid at the time of ordering and is includes factors such as the amount of fuel ordered, the delivery timeframe and type of vehicle required. Prices for fuel are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders which we have accepted.
One factor we use to calculate the price quoted is the amount of fuels you have ordered. There is a cost to us in delivering each order so if we are unable to deliver your order due to something you have or haven’t done (for example, not enough space in your tank to take the amount ordered) then we may, at our option, charge an additional amount representing the price you would have been quoted had you ordered the amount actually delivered in addition to the cost we incurred delivering the excess fuels to you and returning them to our depot.
Payment must be by credit or debit card at the time of placing your order. To help protect from fraud and that your payment card is not being used without your consent, we may carry out certain identity, credit and fraud checks, including validating the personal information you give us during our ordering process. We may use third party databases to do so and we reserve the right to change our process for checks from time to time.
A service charge of £2.50 is applied to each order placed on our website www.tanktopper.co.uk. This supports us to maintain and run our online platform and continue to provide excellent customer service.
Delivery of the fuel will be made to the address you provided at the time of placing an order on our site.

In the event that the delivery partner is unable to complete any part of the delivery to the customers address as a result of failure to provide sufficient delivery information or for any other reason (including the customer’s refusal to accept the delivery of the products or part thereof) the customer shall be liable to pay TankTopper a reasonable aborted delivery charge which is the cost to us of delivering the Goods to you and returning them to our depot or another customer whichever is cheaper.
