3.2 If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product.

3.4 We only sell to the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK but some restrictions apply. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from addresses outside the UK. We cannot deliver to Scottish Islands, Northern Island, Highlands, Channel Islands, Isle of Man or Isle of Scilly. If you wish to buy our products but are outside of our delivery coverage then please contact as we can discuss with you collection by you or your chosen courier or alternative delivery options open to you.
4. Our Products
4.1 The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
4.2 Before you place an order, it is important that you check the product’s specification details for suitability of their intended purpose. If you are unsure about the suitability of the goods, then please ask us.
4.3 If we are supplying the product to measurements you have given us, you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct..
4.4 Prior to commencing the installation or any adjustments to our products, please examine them for any faults. By fitting them or making alterations in any way, we shall deem you to have accepted the goods as supplied. We shall not be held responsible for any incidental work or expense arising out of or because of any defect in our product, or bad workmanship applied to our goods. In the unlikely event that the purchased items are not in line with this contract, please refer to clause.
4.5 We may from time to time offer promotions on some of our products or product ranges. All promotions and offers are, unless otherwise stated, strictly one per household. We reserve the right to change the details of a promotion or withdraw a promotion at our discretion.
5. Your rights to make changes
If you wish to make a change to the products you have ordered, please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price, the timing for delivery or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
6. Our rights to make changes
We reserve the right to make any changes in the specification of our products that are necessary to ensure they conform to any applicable safety or statutory requirements; and to make without notice any minor modifications in our specifications we think necessary or desirable.
7. Providing the Products
7.1 The costs of delivery will be as told to you during the order process upon enquiry regarding delivery. Delivery prices are advertised on our website.
7.2 Products will be delivered to you in accordance with the delivery method which you chose at the basket. Please see our delivery page for further details.
7.3 Our deliveries are kerbside only. We advise that you should have help to unload the goods from the pallet. Any of our deliveries could be made by anything up to an 18-tonne lorry, so it is assumed that the delivery address will be easily accessible. If the delivery address is situated on a private road please inform us at the time of order as some couriers will not take their vehicles on private roads. If access is likely to be a problem, please inform us at the time of order to discuss alternative delivery options.
7.4 If our delivery of the goods is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this within 30 days of notifying you of the delay, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any Goods you have paid for but not received.
7.5 If you have asked to collect the Goods from our premises, you can collect the Goods from us at any time during our working hours. Collection lead times may vary by product and we will therefore contact you to let you know when your order is ready for collection. Upon collection, you are responsible for the goods and collections are consequently done so at your own risk. We require you to inspect and examine the goods prior to loading, as goods can easily be damaged when being transported in or on unsuitable transport. You must ensure the goods are safely and appropriately transported, thus we will not accept liability for damage which occurs subsequently after leaving our premises. This does not affect your statutory rights.
7.6 If you are not available to take delivery, we may leave a card giving instructions on redelivery from the carrier. We may also pass on any costs incurred by us as a consequence of no-one being available to take delivery.
7.7 If you refuse to sign for the delivery of the Product on delivery or if you do not (within two weeks of our first attempt to deliver the Product to you) accept delivery or collect the Product from the carrier, then we may (without affecting any other right or remedy available to us) charge you for storage costs and other costs reasonably incurred by us, including, but not limited to, redelivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery we may end the contract and Clause 9.2 will apply.
7.6 You shall own the Product on the later of when we deliver it to you and when we receive payment in full for the Products (including VAT and delivery charges).
8. Your rights to end the contract
8.1 You may contact us to end your contract for a product, as long as it is not bespoke, at any time before we have delivered it and you have paid for it, but in some circumstances, we may charge you for doing this, as described below.

8.3 If you are not ending the contract for one of the reasons set out in clause 8.2, then the contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for Goods not provided but we may deduct from that refund set out in clause 9.2
8.4 If you end the contract after Products have been dispatched to you and (because we cannot recall them) they are delivered to you, you must return them to us. We will pay the costs of return if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you are exercising your legal rights to end the contract because of something we have done wrong then we will pay the costs of return. In all other circumstances you must pay the costs of return in addition to a 30% restocking charge, as all of our products are made to order.
9. Our rights to end the contract

- (b) you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the Goods to you or collect them from us.
9.2 If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 9.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for Goods we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you as compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract or reasonable compensation.

We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated on our website, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may terminate the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require you to return the product at our expense.

13.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.

15.5 If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
