What you need to do
Orders will be delivered to the delivery address provided and a signature will be required acknowledging receipt of the delivery. The signatory must be 18 years of age and over. If no one is present at the time of delivery, the goods will not be delivered unless alternative arrangements have already been agreed with the delivery company. If you are unable to be at the delivery address on the specified delivery day please let us know with as much notice as possible so we can rebook the delivery otherwise you may incur additional delivery charges.
We strongly advise you to inspect the goods prior to signing for delivery. This is most important with boxed items containing Windows with glazed units. It’s rare but damage does happen. So if you discover that a product is damaged on delivery, you must sign the delivery note as “Damaged” and contact us as soon as possible. If you later find there is damage to the product after you have signed as received in good condition, you have 10 days from delivery to notify us, after which no exchange can be made. Packages signed for “Unchecked” will be deemed to be received in good condition.
For the return of unwanted goods, you are responsible for the cost associated with returning the items to us. You must ensure that the goods are suitably packaged to prevent damage in transit and are in the same condition as they were when delivered to your delivery address. Should the situation arise where the packaging has been damaged then we will charge a reboxing fee which will be determined by the type and size of the product(s).
Please ensure that returns are sent to the address as follows with your original order confirmation attached to the product being returned:
