Description of goods
Our aim is to ensure that any
product purchased from us is described as accurately as possible in each

meets your expectations. However, due to the uploading process on some
photos the colour may differ slightly from the product itself.

only. It is the buyer’s sole responsibility to make sure that the
purchased goods fit into their appointed space so should you need exact
measurements for any of our products then please contact us at email@example.com for further

accept payments by cash, credit card, debit card, cheque or bankers draft.
You must allow the payment to clear if you are paying by bankers draft or
cheque before we can dispatch your goods.
The goods will remain the
seller’s sole property until the payment has successfully been added to our
account and you have received a receipt/dispatch email to confirm this.

Delivery & Returns
Garden furniture delivery
Standard delivery on our garden furniture is usually 5-10 working days.
Most of our sets are sent with a two-man delivery service (except in the
unlikely event that two-man delivery is not available). There is the
option at checkout to include a preferred delivery date. If you choose to
include a preferred date please make sure it is no sooner than the 3rd working
day after the date of purchase. Although we will do our best to arrange
delivery for a requested date, please be aware this is subject to availability
with the courier and therefore cannot always be guaranteed. You must also
provide a telephone contact number for delivery (mobile preferred) so the
courier can contact you. Delivery may be delayed if a number is not
provided as we are unable to dispatch without one. Once we have received
your order we will arrange for the furniture to be collected by the courier.
The courier will then contact you directly by text or email with your
delivery date. You will also receive a call, text or email the day or
evening before delivery with your estimated delivery time window. Please
be aware once your delivery date has been arranged you may be responsible for
any additional charges incurred from the delivery company should you then wish
to change the delivery date. Please note delivery is dependent on courier
performance, which can be effected by adverse weather, traffic conditions and
other unforeseen circumstances. Deliveries typically take place between
7am and 7pm, Monday to Friday, although items may be delivered outside of these
hours in busy periods. Express or Saturday delivery is usually available
at an additional charge. If you would like to enquire about these
services please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for

before 12noon will usually be dispatched the same working day. Items

Deliveries typically take place between 7am and 7pm, Monday to Friday,

If no one is home when delivery
is attempted the courier will leave a calling card for you to rearrange
delivery. If you do not arrange a specific date after the failed delivery
attempt, the courier will automatically reattempt delivery on an alternative
date. Should the second delivery attempt be unsuccessful due to you not
being present or the goods are unsafe to deliver, the goods being unable to fit
through the door/access point, or any other circumstances where the buyer is at
fault, you the customer will be responsible for any further delivery charges
which will be dependant on the size/number of items you have ordered.

their original packaging. Failure to do so will result in additional
charges that will be deducted from your refund to cover the cost of the missing
packaging or any damage that occurs due to the item not being packaged
correctly. Once we have received your return the goods will be inspected
thoroughly for any signs of use, misuse, or any damage/fault caused by the
buyer’s negligence. If the goods show any of these signs they will then
be returned back to your confirmed address and a surcharge levy to cover
postage costs will apply at the buyer’s expense. If your goods have been
assembled and are not faulty, or have been used, you will not be able to return
your goods for a refund. After the returned goods have been inspected and
we find there are no discrepancies concerning the above your refund will be
processed within 10 days.
Any faults should be reported to us as soon as possible by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please
make sure you include your order reference and photographic evidence of the
fault so that we can diagnose the issue. Once the fault has been
diagnosed, a replacement part(s) will be sent in the post or with a courier for
the customer to fit. If we determine that the full item needs replacing
we will arrange an exchange free of charge. Please be aware the faulty
goods must be returned in their original packaging. If the goods are
unused and the goods were received faulty then you may be entitled to a refund
if you prefer.
