This section should be read in conjunction with our Delivery Poliy.

Unless you order and collect the goods from one of our Trade Outlets, we will deliver them in accordance with your order, usually within the stated delivery time but certainly within 30 days of accepting your order. In addition to your rights under the Returns section of these terms and conditions, in the unlikely event that we do not make the goods available to you within 30 days of accepting your order you will have the option of cancelling your order by notifying us accordingly prior to delivery. Before placing your order, please refer to the delivery options set out on our website to ensure that we can deliver to your address.
5.2. A valid signature will be required on delivery. In the unlikely event that you have not received all the goods within the stated delivery time, you must notify us immediately. You must not schedule or commence any installation work until after you have received your order and checked all the goods for any defects or missing parts.
5.3. For reasons of health and safety and to avoid any property damage, most large items can only be delivered to the exterior of a ground floor location at the delivery address. You must therefore make your own arrangements at your own risk if the relevant item needs to be transported from the delivery location. We will not provide any unpacking, installation or fitting services upon delivery.
5.4. You must do all that you reasonably can to enable delivery to take place at the given time and place. If you delay delivery, or delivery fails because you have not taken appropriate steps, we will try to arrange for an alternative delivery date within 30 days of the failed delivery. If delivery fails as a result of circumstances within your reasonable control, the cost of any re-delivery shall be borne by you. If we are unable to arrange a date for re-delivery we may cancel your order and refund to you the price that you have paid for the goods, less the delivery cost paid by you and the additional failed delivery cost incurred by us. Currently our failed delivery cost is £30 per delivery.
5.5. As soon as we have delivered the goods, the Customer will be responsible for their safekeeping and we will not be responsible for any damage or fault arising from incorrect storage. If the Customer delays a delivery, our responsibility for everything other than damage due to its negligence will end on the date we agreed to deliver them as set out in the contract.
5.6. Without prejudice to your responsibility, upon delivery of the goods to you, the goods shall be at your risk. In spite of delivery having been made, ownership (also known as “title”) in the goods shall not pass to you until you have paid the price for the goods in full and no other sums whatsoever shall be due to us from you. Until title in the goods passes from us, you shall: (i) not be entitled to use the goods; (ii) safely hold the goods for us; (iii) return the goods to us immediately if we ask you to; and (iv) be liable to us for any loss, damage or destruction of the goods. In addition, until title in the goods passes from us to you, you shall store the goods at your own cost separately from all other goods in your possession and marked in such a way that they are clearly identified as our property.
5.7. In the unlikely event that your delivery does not turn up, you must inform us as soon as possible. You have 30 days from the day of order to inform us, after this the delivery will not be re-delivered.
6.1. Please keep your receipt as proof of purchase, we are unable to accept returns without proof of purchase.
