On the order you must provide us with your exact billing address and a contact telephone number. Incorrect information will cause a delay in processing your order. Your order will only be processed once authorisation of your credit card has been properly received.

The total price payable for the goods will be stipulated at the time you place your order whether or not the order has been confirmed. All prices are inclusive of VAT but exclusive of delivery charges which will be payable as indicated at the time of placing your order, unless stated otherwise.

If an error or inaccuracy is discovered with regards to the advertised price of the goods that you have ordered, we will contact you as soon as possible by email or telephone.

Delivery dates are approximate and are not the essence of the contract. You are advised not to arrange installation of the items until after they have been delivered and checked for damage.

We aim to dispatch your order as quickly as possible but aim for all orders to be completed within a maximum of 100 working days of the order being placed. We will give all the information we can about the expected day of delivery within 2 working days of the order being placed and will confirm whether am or pm delivery time via email or telephone the day prior to delivery. If any item is out of stock, we will email or telephone you to advise you of the new expected delivery date. You must indicate if you wish to take advantage of this service.

If for any reason expected delivery will exceed 30 days from the date of receipt of order the customer will be informed and given the opportunity to cancel the order. However, all delivery dates given are only and always provisional. Goods are subject to availability and delay in delivery of goods is sometimes outside of our control, and we accept no liability whatsoever in respect to late deliveries.

The delivery drivers are not insured to take their vehicles on roads other than public highways. If you live in a remote location and your home is not on a public road, e.g. if you live at the end of a farm track, then the driver will deliver the goods to the end of the public road only. You accept this when placing your order and if you refuse the delivery because of the driver cannot drop at your door then you will be charged any additional delivery costs, restocking and collection fees.

The driver will move the individual items to a single location of your choice outside the property. The drivers may be prepared to assist with moving the items into the property, but this is entirely at their discretion, they are not obliged to do this. The delivery will be made by a single driver, so if the items you have ordered are heavy please ensure that an able-bodied person is available to assist the driver with the carrying. For Health and Safety reasons the driver cannot carry heavy items on his own. While the driver may be prepared to assist with moving the items inside the property, they will not be prepared to negotiate any stairs. We cannot be held liable for any damages if your order is taken higher than ground floor and/or you damage it whilst moving.

Without prejudice to the statutory rights afforded to consumers under English law, DIY Sliding Wardrobes accepts no liability for any failure to ship products where this results from its inability to do so resulting from acts of god, civil commotion, riots, flood, drought, fire, legislation or other factors outside it’s control, or its decision on reasonable grounds not to do so for reasons of suspicion of credit card fraud or similar, provided that it takes all reasonable steps to notify you within fourteen (14) days of order placement that products will not be shipped as ordered. In such cases Wardrobe Doors Direct will not process any payment or will immediately refund any payment made, in full.

Checking Goods for Damage and Notifying DIY Sliding Wardrobes.

All goods must be checked for damage before signing the driver’s delivery note. If you sign for the goods, even if you write the words “Unchecked” or similar on the delivery note, then you are accepting that the goods arrived in good condition and later claims for damages or missing items will not be considered. If the driver refuses to wait while you check the goods, then you must refuse to accept the delivery and contact us with the details as soon as possible.

If someone else is signing for the goods on your behalf, you agree to advise them that the goods must be checked, and you accept full responsibility for any loss or damage if they sign on your behalf and fail to check. You agree to indemnify us in full for any losses we suffer as a result of you or your agent accepting goods and signing a delivery note without thoroughly checking the goods for damage.

Damaged / Missing goods

You must notify us of any damage within 24 hours of the delivery. If we are not notified of damage within 24 hours, we cannot accept your claim. You agree to indemnify us in full for any losses we suffer as a result of your failure to notify us within 24 hours.

If an item on a delivery is damaged, make a note of the damaged item on the delivery paperwork and contact us with the details. Do not refuse the delivery unless every item is damaged. If you refuse a delivery with any undamaged items on it, you will be charged for the return and the redelivery of those items.

Risk

As soon as we have delivered the goods to your door you will be responsible for them. We will only deliver to the address on the order and goods will not be left without a signature. From the time of receipted delivery of the goods, any loss or damage to the goods shall be at your own risk.

Returns and refunds

As the system is made to your specifications (“made to measure”) we cannot make any refund, other than a valid warranty claim once you have accepted delivery. To make a warranty claim please first do so in writing or email, then return the goods to our factory, where we will make an inspection within 2 working days.
