Checkatrade, Google & Facebook Testimonials

Lifestyle & Mobility has partnered with the customer reviews platform Checkatrade, Google & Facebook so that you – our customer – can share your experiences of Lifestyle & Mobility with us and with other customers. We value all the feedback we get. We’re proud of the progress that we’ve made on our site and within our stores and with our service, but we’re always looking for ways that we can improve. If you do have a negative feedback, before creating a post we kindly ask you to please in first instance to report it to us at [email protected]lifestyleandmobility.co.uk hopefully we will be able to resolve any issue, before posting any negative feedback on these review platforms.  

Secure Shopping

We accept online payments in a secure environment using Secure Socket Layering technology (SSL) by credit or debit card. This means that on any page where you enter your personal information such as credit card details, the information sent to us is encrypted to safeguard your details. Encryption prevents other internet users from accessing this information.

We have implemented a number of measures to ensure our site and your details are as secure as possible. When you send us your personal information, the link between your PC and our server is encrypted using industry standard methods (SSL). Once your information reaches our server the card details are further encrypted before being stored on our secure sever behind its firewall. Your card number is never stored in any human readable format. Our computers use your card details to take payment automatically. Our employees have no access to any sensitive customer information.

In some instances, Lifestyle & Mobility will contact you via telephone after an order has been placed on the site. You will be requested to confirm details of the order and answer some security questions. This will allow the order to then be processed and dispatched promptly to you. Lifestyle & Mobility will never request you to confirm your registration password you use to log into your account.

If you receive a suspected fake Lifestyle & Mobility e-mail, discover a spoof  Lifestyle & Mobility website, or if anything raises your suspicions, please report it to us at [email protected]lifestyleandmobility.co.uk, forwarding any suspicious e-mails including the full headers directly.

VAT Relief

Individuals who are chronically sick or disabled and whose products are for personal use, or charities where the products are made available to a disabled person for their own personal/domestic use, may be eligible for VAT Relief.

To quality for VAT Relief you must ensure that the VAT Relief checkboxes are selected at checkout, along with stating the precise medical condition. Assuming you meet the criteria, VAT will not be added (unless a particular product has compulsory VAT).

Orders that are received without ticked exemption will incur the VAT charge which will be highlighted clearly to you through our shopping calculator.

Completed VAT Relief Declarations by customers are accepted as prima facie evidence by the Company that a valid medical condition exists for exemption under The VAT Act, and no VAT will be charged on the goods purchased. If, at a later date, HMRC disputes the validity of the medical condition, you will be liable to pay the appropriate VAT that should have been applied. Under these circumstances, Lifestyle and Mobility reserves the right to demand that you pay the VAT amount that is due.

Customers in other EU countries may have to pay VAT depending on location. Customers outside of the European Union do not pay any VAT.

The VAT/sales tax shown in the basket and in our checkout is meant as a guide. The final VAT/sales tax amount will be shown on the printed invoice received with your items.

Every effort has been taken to ensure that the products supplied by Lifestyle & Mobility correspond as closely as possible to the pictures illustrated on our website and brochure, but they may vary due to the unique characteristics and variation of materials. Lifestyle & Mobility are not responsible for any such variations, including but not limited to the following:

  • Leather is a natural material with unique characteristics such as shade variation, random scars and blemishes.

We reserve the right to make any changes to product descriptions/specifications (internal or external) and any other changes where necessary.

Manufacturer warranties and Lifestyle & Mobility warranties do not affect your consumer rights.

The majority of our products are guaranteed for twelve months by the manufacturer.

Voucher codes can only be used for purchases made on our website. Orders placed over the telephone are not eligible for these offers and promotions.

Only one promotional code can be applied on each individual order.

Promotional codes are only available for eligible orders placed during the period which the promotion has been determined to run to. Any orders falling outside of this period will not be eligible for the promotion.

When the order is placed the correct promotional code must be used or the promotion will not be applied.

When an order which has a promotion applied to it is refunded the final amount paid for the order will be refunded. No extra amount will be refunded on a saving accrued as a result of a promotion being applied nor will the value of a free item be refunded.

Once a promotion has been applied this cannot be replaced with another promotion that the order is eligible for after the order has been placed.
