7. Placing an order
When you place an order through the Website, we will send an email to confirm that we have received the order. All orders are subject to these terms and conditions.
We cannot accept an order until payment has been received in full for all products and any related delivery charges.
Orders placed through the Website represent an offer to purchase a product. It is accepted for each product when we send you an email to confirm that the order has been received. We reserve the right to reject any order for any reason.
All orders are subject to stock availability. If we are unable to supply any products that you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible. If we cannot fulfil the order we will refund any payments we have received from you as soon as possible and within 30 days.
Our delivery procedure is set out in our separate document ‘Delivery information’. However it is the responsibility of our customers to follow this procedure and the checking process, for damage reporting, required by our carriers when arriving at the site. Please read the ‘Delivery information’ we provide on the Website carefully.
The prices on the Website include delivery charges to England, Wales and Scotland apart from off-shore locations, including but not limited to the Inner and Outer Hebrides, Orkney, Shetland, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, and Northern Ireland. For off-shore location delivery charges please contact us by email or telephone prior to placing your order.
All deliveries are to a single address as provided by you and if this is not the correct address we reserve the right to charge for re-delivery. All deliveries must be signed for by a person over the age of 18.
Should we try and fail to deliver on the proposed delivery date because there is no one available to take delivery, then we reserve the right to charge for any further attempted deliveries, transportation charges or storage charge which we incur as a result.
We recommend that you do not book fitters until your order has been checked and received.
Delivery times are estimates. We will try our best to meet the outline delivery schedule but shall not be responsible for any failure to deliver ordered products within these time frames.
9. Changing your agreed delivery date
Once a delivery date has been booked and agreed with you this can be changed if we are notified by you, up to 5 working days prior to the agreed delivery date. If we are notified after this time and a change to the delivery date is required by you, the goods may have already left our premises and we will have to charge £100 to re-schedule the delivery. This payment will be required prior to re-arranging the delivery date.
All prices are shown excluding VAT where appropriate. VAT will be charged at the point of purchase and clearly shown on your invoice and order confirmation. Our site contains a number of products, and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that where a product’s correct price is less than our stated price or higher than our stated price we will contact you for instructions before dispatching the product.
All prices are subject to change without prior notification. We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an order confirmation email.
We provide guarantees on many of our products where stated or our guarantee logo appears. Please take time to read and understand the guarantee which is posted on the Website. Our guarantees are linked and combined to following the procedures and recommendations in our assembly and installation instructions, care and maintenance procedures, and our Home Owners manual. These can be downloaded, printed or read on the Website. All purchasers should read these documents prior to receipt of delivery in order to fully understand the requirements and terms.
12. Cancellation and returns
These rights during the ‘Cooling off period’ and other rights or obligations only apply to consumers and not to business buyers.
As a consumer you have the right to cancel your order for any reason within 7 working days from the date of delivery. To do so you must notify us in writing (preferably email) within those seven days.
Orders placed for made to measure products may not be cancelled.
If the ordered products have not been dispatched by us at the time of cancellation we will refund to you all the monies paid by you within 30 days.
If the products have been received or dispatched to you, and it is your intention to cancel, then the goods should not be unpacked on arrival and - very important - must be insured by you and returned by you without damage or missing parts, using transport arranged by you. On receipt back at our premises the transport company you have used must allow us time to check the goods in their presence for damage or missing parts. If this time is not allowed then you agree to accept our findings once the goods have been checked. Please call our customer service department to arrange on 01625 44 28 99 or email email@example.com
While in your possession you must keep any products you intend to return to us in good condition. You will be responsible if they are lost, damaged, or destroyed whilst they are in your possession as ownership of the goods and title pass to you on delivery. The goods must be returned to us in good condition and within 14 days of receipt by you and we reserve the right to check on arrival back at our premises that there is no damage or missing parts.
On arrival back at our premises we will refund all monies paid by you, less a handling charge and less any costs for damages or missing parts.
If the product is received by you and has transit damage to the outer packaging then this must be noted when signing the carrier’s delivery note or hand held computer. If it is obvious that the whole set has been damaged during transit then you can refuse delivery and ask for a replacement set to be sent.
If when unpacking the goods and within 72 hours of delivery you find that there is a manufacturing fault or missing parts then there is no need to return the full set as you can contact our customer service department on 01625 442 899 and they will send out replacement parts. (See our Home Owners Manual on the Website for full details).
