We will arrange to dispatch your goods when full payment has been received. The delivery schedule will be arranged directly with the customer to ensure delivery dates are convenient.
Deliveries are made to the ‘kerb side’ at the nearest access point to the delivery address for the delivery vehicle. The client is responsible for taking the delivery into their site. It is the responsibility of the client that the delivery address will be accessible by lorry. If this is not the case and there is a problem (e.g. the road is subject to a vehicle weight or width limit), please inform us whilst arranging delivery with our staff.
The person who placed the order will need to be at the delivery address to sign for the goods. The delivery on the day can be any time between 8am and 6pm. The goods should be inspected immediately on delivery as no claims with regard to damaged items or incorrect goods can be made after the courier has left delivery address, unless signed for as damaged or wrong goods delivered on delivery note.
The person receiving the delivery is responsible for checking that the delivered quantity (floor area or number of packs) agrees with the Delivery Note. If a pallet has been sent out all packs on the pallet must be checked. Claims for quantity differences after the courier has left can not be accepted.
Please inspect your goods immediately on delivery. No claims with regard to damaged items can be made after the courier has left the delivery address, unless signed for as damaged on delivery. Damaged goods should be returned with the courier.

Before installing the boards all reasonable care should be taken to ensure that ALL the boards are flawless. We will not accept claims for damaged, faulty or incorrect items once the flooring has been laid. Once the goods have started to be installed or used in any other way it will be taken as conclusive evidence that the buyer has accepted that ALL goods are in good order. The buyer has full responsibility for the suitability of the goods ordered for the purpose to which they are put.
Accessories are normally only sold together with flooring products. In the event that accessories are ordered without flooring a delivery charge is still applicable. The charge will be shown on the invoice.
Our minimum order quantity is 5m2. Orders for lesser amounts will be charged at the rate for 5m2. For other bespoke items, the minimum order value is £175.

When we are installing flooring, the site must be clear of all other trades to allow the work to be completed unimpeded. If the site conditions are not ready, we reserve the right to halt work and reschedule. An abortion fee will be charged.
If the client cancels or postpones the fitting with less than 48hrs notice of the agreed start time, this will incur a rearrangement fee of £420. The minimum area for a site visit or fitting is 50m2.
The reaction of customer supplied wood to the finishing process can result in a wide variation in the resulting colour range. Particularly if the finishing process uses Fuming or Reactive Staining, the finish colour variation can be extreme and can not be defined before the finishing process.

Should there be a wide variation in the colour range, the client is responsible for:
