UK Delivery Policy

Due to current Covid restrictions and the unprecedented demand for our goods, there may be delays in receiving your order within our normal timescales. Every courier across the UK is now facing a huge influx of collection requests.  We would kindly ask customers to allow for delays with delivery deadlines.

All deliveries are kerbside. This means that you (or someone able) must be home to take the products from the vehicle to your home. The driver will only unload to the kerbside; they are not insured to enter your home. Deliveries cannot be left outside in porches, garages or any other location.

As your order will arrive on pallets, we are required to use HGV transport. Please advise ASAP if your property is not suitable for delivery by a heavy goods vehicle as we will need to inform the delivery company and make special arrangements for a smaller vehicle.

No liability can be accepted for costs caused by late deliveries or for any other reason. Therefore we advise against booking trades for installations until goods have been received, checked and accepted on site. 

Please be aware that the delivery drivers cannot stop on a red-route area because this act is illegal. Red-routes are rigorously patrolled by police and other law enforcement officials. Other arrangements will have to be made by the customer to make sure goods can be delivered successfully to properties within a red route area. 

It is important that the customer does not refuse delivery. We cannot be held responsible for any re-delivery charges or fees incurred because the customer has refused delivery. It is down to the customer to inspect the pallet on receipt of delivery and check the order is in check and as expected. Any issues after this point could be subject to charges

In the unlikely event that some of your goods are damaged we will collect and replace the products. Please ensure that you inspect the goods immediately upon delivery and satisfy yourself that the goods are delivered in perfect condition. In the rare event that you receive any damaged packs then please inform the driver who has delivered your flooring and notify us immediately. Whenever possible please photograph the damaged goods immediately and provide copies to us via email. Any claims must be made within 7 days of receipt of goods.

This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents, or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the goods, including the right to receive goods that are: as described and match the information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us: and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987

Even it we delay in enforcing this contract we can still enforce it later.
