Due to the handcrafted production process of our furniture all delivery dates are approximate at time of ordering. We hold a lot of stock but delivery times can be up to 10 weeks if out of stock.If the items are in stock, obviously delivery will be faster. All our prices are quoted Ex-Warehouse in Liverpool and customers can pick up from our warehouse after booking in the order number. If however, the customer cannot pick up we can arrange delivery by a specialist furniture carrier on the customers behalf. All quotes for delivery are issued on a part load basis, and are dependent on the carrier’s schedule in the customer’s area, this can vary from 2-6 weeks depending on the schedule of the carrier. We, or the carrier will contact you prior to despatch to confirm a suitable delivery day. All dimensions are ‘working area sizes’ and it is the customers responsibility to ensure that the consignment can gain access to the premises and the space where it is intended for. It is very important to check the measurements of all access areas e.g. doorways, hallways, stairs, stairwells, and ceiling heights etc. As the furniture is handmade all measurements are approximate and can vary by up to 1-2cm. When you place your order you must inform us of any access restrictions or circumstances which may prevent successful delivery being completed. We are unable to refund orders which cannot be delivered due to restricted access or the items not fitting the room. A delivery charge will be incurred in the event of goods being returned to us due to access areas being too narrow etc. Delivery will be to the ground floor doorstep of the address, however you may request the driver to move the products to an alternative location within the house at your own risk. This is done entirely on the instructions and at the risk of the buyer and the carriers are under no obligation to do so. Part loads can be considered but may incur extra delivery charges. The customer shall be required to sign the delivery note on delivery in acknowledgement of the receipt of goods. Claims for shortages or damage shall be recorded at delivery if possible and no later than within three days or receipt of the goods. Your statutory rights are unaffected. All goods remain the property of Island Furniture Co until paid for in full.
FURNITURE MANUFACTURERS DISCLAIMER:
All our furniture is handmade from solid woods. Some of our wood is reclaimed, so there will be slight inconsistencies in grain and colour and will include knots and indents which will not usually be filled out . This is the natural effect of the ageing process of the wood and adds to the unique character of each piece. Avoid putting solid woods directly beside radiators or other sources of direct heat as it may cause excess drying in the wood and may lead to cracking. Damp or dehumidified environments can also lead to cracking and must be avoided. In the construction of most of our beds we use floating panels which are designed to move. In extreme cases the leading edge of the panel may expose the raw wood ( in overheated or dry environments) , in this case an easy remedy is just to apply some stain which we can provide. This is not a manufacturing fault. We make every effect to ensure that the products we supply match as closely as possible to the samples shown on line or in brochures but there may be slight variations in colour appearance due to different reproductions through printing, photographic or internet mediums. We cannot accept responsibility if the colour shown on your browser is not exact to the true colour of the furniture. All dimensions are accurate at time of listing but we reserve the right to amend dimensions, colours, or terms of sale as we constantly seek to improve and upgrade our range. Your statutory rights are unaffected.
MATTRESSES AND UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE:
All our mattresses and upholstered furniture conform to BS7177: 1996. For comfort and reliability, mattresses should be turned regularly. Due to hygiene and health regulations we cannot accept return of a used mattress or upholstered furniture except in the case of a manufacturing fault. A used mattress will be charged for as per our standard price list and will negate any special offers regarding the same . This also applies to upholstered furniture. Your statutory rights are unaffected.
