Delivery

If our carriers are unable to deliver to you, due to you not being there or are unable to take delivery of the goods for any reason other than damage as set out elsewhere, or you have not advised us of any potential problems regarding access etc, then we will hold you liable for all abortive costs or charges which may be incurred. If you cancel an order after we have started to ship it, we regret that we have to make a shipping charge to return it to our warehouse, even if the products have not reached your address. Returned goods are dealt with elsewhere in this agreement. Timed deliveries are available at additional cost - please contact us for details and a quotation. Please do not sign for, or accept, any goods until unpacked and checked in full. Please inspect your goods very carefully at delivery.  Only sign once you are entirely satisfied with the condition of your purchase.

We are unable to accept back any returned goods which are specially ordered. Carriage costs in respect of returned goods shall be your responsibility.

Collection

If you would prefer to collect your product(s) from our showroom in Guildford you are welcome to do so. Not all of our products are held in stock; we will contact you when your purchase is ready for collection. Photo identification (a current driving licence or passport) will be asked for when collecting your products for security reasons. Collection may be refused if you cannot provide this. Collections can only be arranged for Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.

Installation

We offer a professional installation service using our own installation team. We obviously prefer to install all products that we sell to ensure that they are installed correctly and will give you many years of trouble free service; however we recognise that some customers will want to arrange their own installation. If you are not using our installation service it is your responsibility to choose a product of appropriate type, needs and dimensions, etc, and to ensure that it is installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and all relevant regulations by a suitably qualified installer/competent person. If arranging your own installation we recommend that you do not book a date for fitting until the item has been delivered and accepted.

Costs incurred by you

We are not liable for any costs incurred by you or for any loss of earnings. For example, if a delivery is delayed in any way and you have to rebook an installer then we are not liable for any extra charges that the installer may charge you. We always recommend that you do not book an installer until you are in receipt of the goods. We are also not liable for any loss of earnings as a result of you taking time off work to accept a delivery which then turns up late, or not at all or any other consequential loss, howsoever caused.

Cancellations & returns

Mail order, telephone and internet sales to individuals (not businesses) are covered by the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (UK Law Directive 97/7/EC), which protect you by providing a 7 working day 'cooling off' period after the day after the product has been delivered. You have the option to cancel any order between the time of placing it and 7 working days after delivery. Cancellations must be in writing by post or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We normally pay refunds within 14 days of cancellation or of the goods being safely returned (whichever is the later). A restocking charge of 15% in the case of stock items shall be made. We are unable to accept back any returned goods which were specially ordered. Carriage costs in respect of returned goods shall be your responsibility. You are advised to retain the packaging. You will find it difficult to return the item without appropriate packaging. The goods must not have been fitted, installed or used in any way and must be unmarked and free from blemishes of any kind and must returned in a saleable condition. We cannot accept return of products which are damaged after delivery. When choosing a carrier to return your goods to us, you must make sure that we are allowed to open and inspect the contents when we receive it. If the carrier will not allow us to open the goods then our warehouse will refuse delivery and the goods will be returned to you on your carrier. This could incur further costs to you.
