These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide our goods and/or services to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.

2.3 How we may contact you. If we have to contact you, we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
3.1 Estimates. Our estimates are based on the information provided to us by you and we accept no liability for issues arising from errors in the information provided by you. We therefore strongly recommend that you allow us to visit and take our own measurements to avoid these errors. We do not charge for site visits to measure up.
3.2 Excluded items. Unless expressly stated, any estimates do not include the following which will be at additional cost:
(a) easing of doors (£25 per door);
(b) moving of furniture (from £40 per room);
(c) removal and replacement of kitchen appliances (£25 per appliance);
(d) removal and replacement of skirting boards;
(e) repairs required to the subfloor;
(f) underlay, grippers and all other sundries.
The above list is not exhaustive and may be amended from time to time. You should therefore check if you have any queries.
3.3 Laminate and wood flooring. In respect of laminate and wood flooring, our estimates are based on scotia being the most economical way to cover expansion gap and should you require alternative provision, this will be at additional cost. Laminate in bathrooms/toilets will be cut and sealed around the toilet base to allow room to expand and contract. If you require the removal and replacement of the toilet unit, this will be subject to a further estimate.
3.4 Payment for materials. You are required to pay upfront in full for all material costs (save for the VAT element which can be paid on completion).
3.5 Fitting costs. If you are allocated one of our employed fitters the fitting costs will be payable upfront when placing the order. If you are allocated one of our self-employed fitters fitting costs are payable in cash directly to the fitters on the day of completion of the job.
3.6 Additional costs. Should any additional costs be incurred (after agreement with you) invoices must be paid within seven (7) days.
3.7 Non payment. Should any fitting costs or additional invoices not be paid as set out above, we reserve the right to charge interest at 8% and to recover any legal costs we incur in recovering these debts.
3.8 Your responsibilities. Whilst our fitters are careful to identify any hazards such as telephone/alarm cables, water pipes and so on, it is your responsibility to make sure our fitters are aware of any such hazards and we will not accept liability for any damages or losses arising caused where our fitters are not previously advised of these hazards. You are responsible for notifying us of any hazards when placing your order and this will be noted on our invoice. You should be aware that fitting flooring may result in dust and although we will do our best to clean this away, we are not liable for any residue left behind.
3.9 Advice. If we give you advice on appropriate flooring and you choose to proceed notwithstanding any such advice, we accept no liability for problems arising.
3.10 How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we tell you that we are able to provide you with the goods and/or services, and you make payment for the goods, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.11 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you.
4.1 Goods may vary slightly. Please note as wood is a natural product, it is subject to naturally occurring variations and we cannot accept liability for any natural flaws. If you have selected flooring from images rather than samples we cannot guarantee that the goods will exactly match the images which are subject to visual display and printing variations.
4.2 Making sure your measurements are accurate and the goods that you receive are correct. You are responsible for ensuring that the goods that you receive is correct and examine them for apparent faults or damage at the time of delivery and before fitting. Any defects should be notified to us immediately. If you have underfloor heating please ensure this is turned off at least 48 hours before fitting. Our fitters will be unable to fit flooring if this is not done and you will be liable for a wasted fitting fee (£180 per day allocated) and we will not be liable for any losses or delays which may arise. Where you require us to lay underfloor heating you should ensure that you have your own qualified electrician to test the finished job. We will not run underfloor cables and this should be placed under the subfloor or trunking.
4.3 For the avoidance of doubt, where large areas are to be covered this may result in joins in carpet. This is not a breach of the obligations in any other clause. If flooring without joins is required then the Customer should make this express when seeking a quotation as different fees will apply given the increased cost involved.
If you wish to make a change to the goods and/or services you have ordered, please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible.
6.1 Delivery costs. The costs of delivery will be as told to you during the order process.
6.2 When we will provide the goods. Estimated delivery and/or fitting dates are given in good faith and are not guaranteed and we are not to be held liable for any changes in delivery and/or fitting dates. In addition to this, we are unable to confirm an installation time. Furthermore, as your appointment is an all-day appointment, we may arrive anytime from 8am to 5pm on your allocated day.
6.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the goods and/or services is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any goods and/or services you have paid for but not received.
6.4 When you become responsible for the goods. The goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the goods to the address you gave us.
