Delivery will occur when the products are ready for unloading at the delivery address, or when the customer takes possession of the products at the company’s premises.
The Delivery Date or any other date or time for Delivery specified by the Company shall be an estimate only. Time for Delivery shall not be of the essence of the Contract. Accordingly, the Company shall have no liability to the Customer for any loss or damage arising (directly or indirectly) from any delay in Delivery however such delay is caused (including, without limitation, by the negligence of the Company or its employees, contractors or agents) nor shall the Customer be entitled to terminate or rescind the Contract or refuse to accept Delivery because of such a delay.
The Customer will inspect the Goods at its earliest opportunity after Delivery. Any claims by the Customer in respect of any damage to or shortage or loss of the Goods must be notified in writing to the Company within 2 working days from the date of delivery and the Company (and any carrier) must be given a fair chance to inspect the Goods. The Company will not accept liability for shortages in quantities delivered unless the Customer notifies the Company of any claim for short delivery of the goods within 2 working days of the delivery. In such circumstances the Company’s liability will be limited to making the shortage good.
All deliveries must be checked, accepted and signed for by a person over the age of 18, at which point the Customer takes full ownership and responsibility of the product with regards to any loss, theft or damage thereafter.
If the Customer does not accept Delivery in accordance with the Contract, the Company shall be entitled to immediate payment in full for the goods so tendered. The Company will arrange for the Goods to be placed in storage at the Customer’s risk and expense until such time as the Goods are Delivered.
Delivery may be made by the Company in separate consignments. Each separate consignment of Goods shall be invoiced and paid for in accordance with the provisions of the Contract. Where Delivery is made in separate consignments, failure by the Company to deliver one or more of the consignments in accordance with the Contract or any claim by the Customer in respect of any of those consignments will not entitle the Customer to repudiate or cancel the Contract or any other consignment of the Goods.
All orders will be delivered to a single UK address. Please ensure that when placing your order with us, that your delivery address is accurate and complete to avoid any issues with delivery. You are also required to notify the The Stone Flooring of any access restrictions for alternative arrangements to be made (where applicable). If a delivery cannot be made due to no-one being present to accept the delivery, then all future attempts will be at the cost and responsibility of the customer.
All quoted delivery dates and times are estimates based on the information provided by the independent transport haulier companies that we work with, therefore we will not be responsible for any delays. To minimise inconvenience we will, wherever possible, try to make one single delivery to you. This means that if your order contains a mix of products with different delivery lead times, the longest lead time will apply to the whole order.
