Relevant part of our T&C's:
2.1 No quotation issued by the Seller shall constitute an offer to supply Goods but the terms contained in any quotation (including prices) will normally remain fixed if a contract is made within 30 days of the date of the quotation. 2.2 The Seller will be under no liability for any order received until the order is accepted by the Seller in writing on its Order Acknowledgement Form at which time a contract will be
formed between the Seller and the Buyer (a Contract"). 2.3 A Contract may only be cancelled or varied with the Seller's consent and the giving of this consent shall not in any way prejudice the Seller's right to recover from the Buyer full compensation for any loss or expense arising from such cancellation or variation. 2.4 These Conditions together with the Special Conditions constitute the Contract for the supply of the Goods referred to in the Special Conditions. No variation of or addition to such Contract shall be binding unless expressly agreed or confirmed in writing on the Seller's behalf by a Director or other duly authorised officer of the Seller.

Many thanks for this Alex. All that is left is for you to recommend a good lawyer in Southampton!
