4. Delivery of Goods
4.1 The delivery of goods to you is deemed to be a separate contract for service, distinct from your contract for purchase. Delivery may be affected in one or more instalments. Changes to the delivery address made by you the purchaser after the goods have been handed to the delivery company may incur an additional charge of £20.00. Should the delivery be attempted but nobody is present that can accept the delivery, actual delivery costs will be charged to you, the customer. Please note that the actual delivery costs may be considerably more than you paid during the checkout process. A re-stocking fee of up to 30% may also be charged in some cases.
4.2 If an item on delivery is damaged, please ensure you make a note of this on the delivery paperwork and email [email protected] with the details. Do not refuse delivery unless every item is damaged. If you refuse a delivery with an undamaged item(s) included, you will be charged for the return and the re-delivery of that item(s). For large pallet deliveries please be aware that the costs will be considerably more than the delivery charge you would have paid at the checkout.
4.3.1 The delivery drivers are not insured to take their vehicles on roads other than the public highways. If you live in a remote or difficult to access location and your home is not on a public road, then the driver will deliver the goods to the end of the public road only. When placing your order you accept this and if you refuse delivery because the driver is unable to deliver the goods to your property then you will be charged the actual delivery costs and collection fees.
4.3.2 Upon delivery it is your responsibility to ensure that an able-bodied person is present during delivery to assist the driver with off-loading and carrying the goods. If nobody is present to assist the driver the goods will be taken back to the depot and the delivery attempt classed as failed. If the delivery attempt is failed there may be a re-delivery fee to be paid by you, the customer, before we are able to send the goods back out. If you wish to cancel the order after a failed delivery attempt you are entited to a full refund less the delivery charge. Please note that all deliveries are kerbside deliveries only.
4.4 Delivery dates are approximate and no liability whatsoever is accepted by us in respect of late deliveries. Do not arrange for any installers, kitchen fitters or other work persons to install the items until after they have been delivered and checked for discrepancies and to make sure the item(s) are undamaged.
4.5 If for any reason expected delivery will exceed 14 working days from the date of the receipt of the order the customer will be informed and given the opportunity to cancel the order.
4.6 In certain circumstances where large bulky items are being ordered for delivery to locations such as Devon and Cornwall or the Scottish Highlands for example, there may be an additional carriage charge. If your order falls into this category, then you will be notified of the extra cost and given the option of accepting the extra charge or cancelling your order.
4.7 Goods may be delivered to an alternative address (such as a neighbours address) and must be checked and signed for. If the delivery is to a communal building like a block of flats, please note that the driver may require help unloading but is only bound to deliver to the reception area, this assistance is required from all customers on delivery and is agreed before delivery. Should you wish for the goods to be delivered to you only you must request this when placing your order online in the notes section or in writing.
4.8 Without prejudice to the statutory rights afforded to consumers under English Law, www.hcsupplies.co.uk accepts no liability for any failure to ship products where this results from the inability to do so, resulting from acts of god, civil commotion, fire, floods, highly unseasonal weather. Legislation or other factors outside of our control or decisions on reasonable grounds not to do so for reasons of fraud or similar, provided that all reasonable steps have been taken to notify you within 14 working days of the date the order was received, that the products will not be shipped to you as ordered.
4.9 In such cases Wow Interiors Yorkshire Limited will not process any payment or will refund a payment made in full (within 30 days). It is your responsibility to ensure that you order from Wow Interiors Yorkshire Limited with sufficient lead time to prevent any loss or disappointment resulting from the non-shipment of goods.
