      5.2. All sizes of Products specified on the Website are approximate only. As most of our Products are hand-made, their actual sizes can be up to 2 cm larger or smaller than specified on the Website and we ask you to take account of this when carrying out your measurements and/or considering whether to purchase a particular Product.

      6. Availability and delivery:

      6.1. Delivery will be made to the address specified when you complete the order. You may alternatively choose, when ordering, to collect your Product(s) from our warehouses in Croydon, CR0 4RR.

      6.3. We aim to fulfil your order by the approximate delivery date provided or within the delivery period set out in the Despatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within a reasonable time of the date of the Despatch Confirmation, unless there are circumstances beyond our control which prevent us from doing so. In the event of our products being held up we shall contact you to let you know if we are having problems getting an item to you by the specified delivery date. No compensation will be offered for late deliveries in any event.

      6.4. It is your responsibility to check carefully that the Products you have ordered will fit into your home. You should check the dimensions of the space within which the Product will be placed and allow for the fact that the dimensions specified on the Website are approximate only and may vary by 2 cm either way. You should also measure any doorways, corridors or staircases the Product will have to pass through, including space for manoeuvring and turning. Should a Product that you have ordered from us not fit and you want to return it, you will lose your delivery fee and may need to pay for the return transport of the product back to us.

Once you or a person on your behalf has signed the delivery paperwork we shall, in NO event, be held responsible for any damage to either your property or goods delivered. This decision is final. Please note that items delivered via a staircase and/or upstairs are carried out at the property owners own risk.We hope you understand why we have to state this.

Once a delivery date and time slot has been agreed with you, should you later need to cancel and re-schedule your delivery for whatever reason, you must inform us by 11am the (business) day before your delivery is due. Should you fail to cancel the delivery by 11am on the business day before your delivery is planned, we reserve the right to charge a second delivery fee to re-schedule your delivery. Should you then for whatever reason choose to cancel your order, we will refund you for the goods (excluding your original delivery charge).

      6.8. If you require delivery to be made to an alternate address, i.e. a neighbour, we require your consent in advance via email to include the name and address of the person who will be signing for delivery on your behalf.

We will normally verify prices as part of our despatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you.

      8.5. We are under no obligation to provide the Product(s) to you at the incorrect (lower) price or if priced at £0, even after we have sent you a Despatch Confirmation/Receipt, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a miss-pricing.
