We will not be responsible for carrying out any building work, moving any furniture, clearing access or invalidation of any warranties you do not tell us about in writing before you make your order.

DELAY OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
If an event outside our control delays delivery/ installation, we will contact you as soon as possible and take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this; we will not be liable for any delays caused by the event as long as the goods are still supplied within a reasonable length of time.
YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL
- a) You may cancel a contract if we have told you about a pricing error/error with a description of the goods. You do not wish to proceed if there is a risk that supply may be significantly delayed, or you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
- b) If we miss the delivery deadline for any of the goods, you can treat the contract as at an end if;
we have refused to deliver the goods, delivery time was essential, and you informed us of this at the time of your order. We accepted your order on that basis. If we have not refused to deliver the goods, or delivery time was not essential, we will deliver the goods as soon as possible and keep you updated in writing. Alternatively, you can give us a new deadline for re-delivery that must be reasonable. If this still needs to be met, you may treat the contract as at an end. You can then cancel your order for any goods or reject any goods delivered already under the contract.
We will then refund the money you have paid for the cancelled goods and their delivery and installation. Goods already delivered to you must be returned to us at our expense, or you must allow us to collect them at our cost.
OUR RIGHT TO CANCEL
- a) We may end the contract at any time in writing to you (including email) if the payment due to us was still not made within seven days of us reminding you it is due, or if you do not, within a reasonable time; allow us to deliver the goods to you, collect the goods from us, or allow us to install the goods (if this was agreed). You will then be in breach of the contract and still liable to pay us the price due under the contract.
- b) If your order is accepted and processed and a pricing error that is obvious, unmistakable and could have been recognised by you as so occurring, we reserve the right to terminate the contract and refund any sum of money you have paid to us.
If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage that you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking the contract or of our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable, unless due to our negligence. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time you placed the order, both you and we knew it might happen, e.g. if you discussed it with us before placing your order.
The contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
