This will enable you to rearrange delivery directly with the courier for your convenience.

PRE-DELIVERY

Vufold only uses reputable 3rd party companies for the delivery of our products. Whilst we have very few delivery issues, from time-to-time things can go wrong. The below information is to protect you in the event of any unforeseen circumstances, so it is important our guidance is followed.  

We do not recommend booking your installation until you have received your order and it has been fully checked for any missing or damaged parts. We will not accept liability for any costs incurred due to any delays to your installation. Please ensure you have had this discussion with the relevant person(s), including any other trades prior to booking in the installation.  

Before your delivery arrives, it is important that you have made the relevant arrangements to ensure somebody is available to check and sign for the goods on the agreed delivery date. We recommend this is carried out by you / the original purchaser. If you are giving this responsibility to another person, it is important you advise them to follow the correct procedure when accepting the goods as set out below.

* For kerb-side delivery; our processing team will contact you in advance to discuss the weights and dimensions of your individual order, so you can ensure sufficient people are on hand to safely offload these items.


DELIVERY PROCESS

When your delivery arrives and before you accept the goods into your property, please check the itemised paperwork provided by the delivery company matches the number of items being delivered. Please then check all items to confirm there has been no obvious damage to the packaging and goods by fully inspecting all faces, edges and corners. Please also ensure it is your name and post code printed on the labels on each of the individual items.   

If there are any discrepancies in the quantities of doors / packs received, or packaging damage is evident, and / or there is an incorrect label, please contact our Customer Service Helpline immediately whilst the delivery company is still there. We will then advise you on the best course of action.   

If you have taken delivery outside of our normal working hours or if it is not possible to contact our customer service department, and there are any missing items, and / or damage to the packaging, please clearly record on the delivery company's paperwork what is missing and / or damaged. Accept delivery of your order and contact our customer service department within 72 hours of receipt of the goods.   

* For kerb-side delivery, upon arrival our driver will identify a suitable access point as close to the delivery address as possible, and you must collect your goods from the vehicle. Our driver is unable to assist with the offloading of your goods or assist with getting them into your home.

IMPORTANT: You should never sign the delivery documents as “Unchecked”. Any shortages and / or damages must be noted on the delivery paperwork, no exceptions. We cannot accept any claims for missing items and / or any damaged items if it has not been recorded on the delivery paperwork, regardless of who you have arranged to accept your order.    

If everything is satisfactory with the delivery, the items can then be carried into your room of choice and the delivery paperwork signed accordingly. You should then fully unpack the product(s) and check for manufacturing faults, defects, or missing parts within 72 hours of receiving delivery. You’ll find a full list of the items you should have received in the assembly instructions included within the hardware pack.

Loose glass units can have sharp edges. It is recommended that protective gloves and glass lifters are used when carrying the units into the property.

Please note there is no need to refuse delivery and or return the full set if a component is found to be defective or missing.   

IMPORTANT: We cannot accept claims for any damages, scratched glass, scratched aluminium or missing items after 72 hours following delivery or after installation has begun. 


HANDLING AND STORAGE

The products are heavy and weigh approximately 30kg to 60kg each. They will therefore need two people to carry them.

When storing products before installation, once all items have been checked, they should be re-packed and kept in their original packaging, handled with care, and stored in a dry, ventilated building. Doors and frames should be stored flat on a level surface - not on edge or on end.

Loose glass units should never be placed directly onto hard floors such as concrete, but should be placed on cardboard, sheeting or wooden batons, on edge rather than flat.  The glass should be stored on its edge and at a 3 – 6 degree angle. Glass should not be stored horizontally or on top of each other and should not come into contact with anything harder than itself. 

If you are transporting the goods to an alternative address other than provided on your original order, it is important you fully inspect the goods for any damages or missing items before arranging forwarding transportation. We cannot accept any claims for damages or missing items should the goods have been forwarded on to an alternative location.

IMPORTANT: It is your responsibility to ensure the correct protective and lifting equipment is used when handling the goods. Vufold will not be held liable for any personal injuries sustained during the delivery, handling and storage process.
