The prices payable for the items that you order are clearly set out on the website. All prices are expressed inclusive of any VAT payable. The price of the items does not include the delivery charge. Delivery for mainland UK is calculated based on the location and the items purchased. Prices may change and the Seller will ensure that revised prices are notified to the Buyer as soon as reasonably possible. Should there be an error in pricing at the time any quotation or purchase the seller will inform the buyer within 5 working days of payment being made where the buyer will be required to pay the balance or the seller will be required to issue a part refund, whichever is applicable.
If for any reason beyond our reasonable control, we are unable to supply a particular item, we will notify you as soon as reasonably possible.
There will be no contract of any kind between you and us until payment for your Goods is authorised by your bank or credit card issuer. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the Goods to you without giving any reason. At the moment that payment for the Goods is authorised, (and not before), a contract will be made between you and us. Authority for payment must be given at the time of the order. Payment and receipt of your order will be acknowledged by email. If for any reason the Goods cannot be supplied then payment will be refunded in full or the seller may offer alternative product.
5.1 Delivery will be made to the address specified by you. Please note that our standard delivery of Goods is within mainland UK. All deliveries within mainland UK will be made to you by our logistics partner. We do not offer delivery to NI, ROI, IOW, IOM or the Isles. We do our best to secure delivery within 21 days of the date of your order being confirmed. Time is not of the essence for the purposes of this condition. Surcharges may apply for special deliveries where there are access restrictions. If you are not at home for a pre-arranged delivery then we reserve the right to charge you £60.00 to redeliver your order. Whilst you may be offered an estimated delivery time this is only an estimate and suggest you be available at the address for the date given. If you wish to change the delivery date once it is agreed then please give us no less than 2 working days’ notice prior to delivery. If less than 2 working days is given, an additional £60.00 may be charged. It is your responsibility to check your StairFurb system for patent defects before signing for the goods. We cannot accept liability for goods damaged after delivery if signed for in satisfactory condition. If you intend using subcontractors for installation we recommend you do not commit to them until the delivery has been made in full and all items checked, this will avoid any danger of you being financially liable for downtime due to unavoidable delays. StairFurb will not accept claims by buyers for costs incurred by third party installers should a delayed or incomplete delivery have contributed. Deliveries to commercial properties could void your warranty.

10.2 Notifying the installer of any particular features which you know about the property which may make the installation more difficult than expected. These should also be mentioned by you during the video call prior to quotation. We will assume that your property is not subject to any listing and that the installation works will not contravene any planning conditions or obligations unless you tell us otherwise. Further we assume that your premises are free from damp, dry rot, infestation or collapse and are otherwise structurally suitable to accept the installation of the products.
10.3 Ensuring that existing services within the property are generally of a legal and good workman-like standard. In particular, you acknowledge that you have checked the walls and floors are sound. You are responsible for locating any hidden wiring or pipework and neither the installer nor the company shall be liable for any damage caused to hidden conduits, wires or pipes or any damage resulting from accidental damage.
10.4 Removing all moveable items from the areas where the installation is to be carried out, and for preparing and protecting all surfaces prior to the arrival of the installer. The installer may reasonably refuse to start work where this has not been done and you will be responsible for any delays (and the cost of any such delays) which arise as a result.

10.11 You acknowledge the inevitability of some disruption in the use of the premises whilst the products are being installed and whilst we shall not be liable for such disruption, we shall take reasonable steps to minimise such disruption.
