Delivery Address: It is critical that you provide us with a delivery address where deliveries can be made during normal business hours from Monday and Friday. If there is nobody to sign for the goods when they are delivered the freight carrier will leave a missed delivery advice card in your letter box advising of the failed delivery. The goods will then be returned to their local depot and you will then need to make contact with the freight carrier directly to arrange an appropriate time for a re-delivery.
Delivery Times - In most cases we expect delivery to have be completed within 14 working days (for items that are in stock) of placement of your order. It is imperative that someone is at the specified delivery address on any given day during normal business hours Monday to Friday to accept delivery of the goods. Freight carriers will do their best to contact you on the number provided prior to delivery however in some cases they may arrive without calling first in which case if there is no one to meet the delivery another time will need to be rescheduled.
Receipt of Delivery: DON NOT SIGN FOR GOODS IF THEY ARE DAMAGED. Upon receiving your goods, please unwrap and check them for damages faults before signing for them. If there are any issues you must make a note on the delivery docket and ask the driver to initial your comments.

You must notify us of any faulty or damaged goods within 24 hours of receipt of the goods by phone on 021559386 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Failure to do so, will mean that any transit insurance policy will be voided. The onus is on you to report any faulty or damaged goods immediately.
We will meet our responsibilities under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993. If the goods are being purchased for a business then the Consumer Guarantees Act does not apply.
Where the goods are subject to a manufacturer's warranty then this will also apply. The goods will not be covered under warranty for normal wear and tear or for damage caused to them due, amongst other reasons, to improper use or cleaning. Please note that, as wood and most of the fabrics are a natural material, light tone differences among the various elements that make up the product may occur. Moreover, if the products are purchased in different periods, the elapsed time and climatic conditions can cause variations in colour and/or tonality and We cannot accept any claim in this regard.
Where we accept a claim, it will be up to our discretion as to whether the goods will be repaired, replaced or a refund offered to You.
