Delivery & Return Policy
Production, Delivery and Installation Timescales
Occasionally, availability of goods and delivery timescales are subject to change. If this happens, you will be informed of the changes. Every effort is made to ensure that this will not happen. Production, delivery and installation dates are quoted genuinely as an estimate and shall not be legally binding on the seller.
The time of production, delivery, installation or collection shall not be the essence of the contract. The seller will not be liable for any direct or indirect loss of profits or other financial loss or damage suffered by the customer through any delay due to unforeseen circumstances outside of the control of the seller.
Should the seller be unable to supply goods subsequent to receiving an order, the seller shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential loss either directly or indirectly, including loss of profits, business, depletion of goodwill and similar loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly.
