Delivery and Returns
Delivery of Goods
We will deliver the goods to the address specified for delivery by you in your order.
All delivery times and dates are estimates. We will endeavour to meet the delivery estimates we have stated but shall not be responsible for any failure to deliver goods within these time frames. We will let you know if we cannot deliver goods within 7 days of the date of your order. If we cannot, we will give you the opportunity to either wait for the goods or cancel your order.
Where we become aware that the date for delivery may be delayed, we will notify you as soon as possible and provide you with a revised date. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for any loss you incur, whether financial or otherwise, resulting directly or indirectly from our delay or failure to meet the original delivery date. We strongly recommend that you do not book fitters or tradesmen until the goods have actually been delivered and checked by you.
When a delivery date has been arranged, you must ensure that someone is available at the delivery address to accept the delivery. All deliveries must be received and signed for by a person at the delivery address. As our deliveries are made by a single courier, you will need to ensure that there is at least one person available at the delivery address to assist the driver to offload your goods
We will always try to make one single delivery to you wherever possible to minimise any inconvenience. When an order contains a mix of goods with different delivery lead times, the longest lead time will apply to the whole order. We reserve the right to deliver by way of installments.
If we cannot deliver the goods to the delivery address on the arranged delivery date because either we cannot access your delivery address or no-one is available at the delivery address to accept delivery of the goods, we reserve the right to charge you (at our normal delivery rates) to re-deliver the goods on a different date. If we agree a re-delivery date with you, but we cannot deliver the goods on that date for the reasons set out above, or if we cannot contact you within 7 days of the original delivery date, to agree a re-delivery date with you, we may cancel the contract, in which case we will refund to you the price of the goods, but we will be entitled to retain any delivery charges paid by you in relation to them.
If goods are damaged on delivery you can refuse to accept them. You agreed to open all boxes delivered by the courier, thoroughly check the goods for damage or shortages and notify the driver immediately. If the packaging of the item appears damaged on delivery please note this on the delivery note. If part of an order is damaged on delivery, you can accept the order but make a note on the delivery note of which item(s) are damaged. Notify us within 24 hours and we will arrange collection of the damaged item(s) and delivery of the replacement item(s).
CURRENTLY WE ARE UNABLE TO DELIVER LENGTHS OVER 3M NATIONALLY. WE CAN DELIVER WITHIN 50 MILES OF OUR ALTRINCHAM DEPOT USING OUR OWN VEHICLES. PLEASE CALL US FOR OTHER DELIVERY INFORMATION.
