Acceptance of Orders

We accept orders via you “the Customer” signing a quotation or by placing an order with us “the Company” via email or in writing.

You are responsible for the accuracy of the order and all specifications contained, as confirmed by you and received by us.  This specification must include the quantity, quality and description of all goods.

Measurements

All of our wardrobes and furniture are made to measure.  The measurement has to be precise in order for the furniture to fit perfectly in place.  Please be aware that you take full responsibility for the dimensions that you supply to us.  Any adjustments to products due to incorrect measurements will incur a replacement cost as we cannot reuse that item, we will advise you of the cost of that replacement prior to proceeding with the adjustments.

Warranty

All of our products and parts are covered by our 10 year warranty, this is not transferable (this does not include electrical components which carry the manufacturers standard guarantee of 12 months).

Veneer is a natural product and will vary in colour.  All variations in colour react to sunlight and changes in temperature and humidity.  Specifically, cherry veneer gets darker with exposure to sunlight and walnut gets lighter with exposure to sunlight.  Oak reacts least to sunlight and will not change significantly in colour.  MFC or Melamine wood grain will not change in colour or appearance.

We will make good free of charge any defects in goods manufactured by us which under proper use, appear in the goods or component parts, within 10 years of installation which are due to faulty materials, workmanship or design.  Any third party goods or components will be subject to manufacturers guarantee.

Quality

We are very proud of the quality of our products and will always endeavour to provide excellent quality goods and service.  The quality and finish of products will be reasonably compliant with generally recognised standards in the trade as decided by an independent expert.

If a colour or finish specified in the contract is by reference to a sample or description, it is possible that they may not be a perfect match.  You must notify us of any issues within three days of delivery or collection of the goods and we will replace or refund any part of the goods which are not a commercial match as decided by an independent expert.

The second instalment of 40% is payable 1 week prior to delivery.
