(7) Availability

All items are subject to availability.

We will inform you as soon as possible if goods you have ordered are not available.

(8) Cancellation/Returns

(8a) Furniture that is bespoke/made to order is not subject to distance selling regulations and is therefore non-returnable. However you are entitled to cancel your contract providing you act within 2 working days of placing your order via the website, telephone or in store.

If you wish to exercise this right please email sales@steelvintage.com or call us within the specified time frame.

(8b) After the 2 day cancellation period we have no further obligation to take back these Goods, though may do so with the addition of a 25% restocking fee plus any other delivery or collection fee incurred. This is entirely at our discretion.

(8c) Any deposit paid to reserve a production slot, up to the value of 25% of the order, will be non-refundable if you choose to cancel the order.

(8d) Ex-display/clearance stock is sold-as-seen and is non-returnable.

(9) Delivery

(9a) Once your order balance has been paid in full and all items are ready for delivery you will be contacted by a member of staff. They will inform you about the soonest delivery date to your area, and will book in a mutually convenient delivery date and time slot with you.

(9b) We will deliver your order to any UK Mainland address. Delivery charges will vary depending on your location in the UK Mainland, but will be indicated at the time you place your order with Steel Vintage.

(9c) Our delivery team will make every effort to deliver within the time slot provided. The delivery date and time slot is an estimate that is given in good faith. Should we find that the estimate is incorrect we will endeavor to inform you using the contact details that you have provided when placing the order.

(9d) You must ensure that access is suitable for the delivery of the goods into your desired location. Cancellations of this sales agreement cannot be accepted on the basis that access to your desired location is not possible (eg. Doorway too small, unable to manoeuvre furniture due to space restrictions, narrow loft access, unable to park van due to road inaccessibility. This list is not exhaustive.), subject to your general right of cancellation under the cancellation clause set out above.

(9e) Our standard delivery only covers delivery through a ground floor or basement entrance that has clear access to a front or back door entrance point; and go up to a first floor level (without any access restrictions within the staircase) if no elevator access is available. Any special delivery instructions must be noted at the point of purchase and any extra charges that may be incurred to ensure delivery into your property are to be paid by you, the customer.

(9f) Our furniture can be large and very heavy, and due to health and safety grounds we may require to have an order delivered by more than our standard 2-man team. If access is severely restricted a window delivery may be required, and in some cases a crane must be hired to be used to lift the furniture through a window. It is your responsibility to inform Steel Vintage of any access restrictions so that we may advise you of any potential charges prior to the order being confirmed.

(9g) If we attempt to make delivery on the date and time slot that you have accepted and no one is present to accept delivery of the goods, you will incur a repeat delivery charge. This charge will be applied even if no original delivery cost was charged. This repeat delivery charge will also apply if you cancel an agreed delivery date and time slot less than 48 hours prior to the agreed date.

(9h) If specialist equipment (such as a crane) was hired on a delivery date and time slot that you have accepted and no one is present to accept delivery of the goods, you will incur a repeat hire charge for the equipment to be re-hired for your next delivery. This re-hire charge will also apply if you cancel an agreed delivery date and time slot less than 48 hours prior to the agreed date.

(9i) If your goods remain at our warehouse for more than 2 weeks, during which time you fail to accept delivery/redelivery (despite Steel Vintage having contacted you to do so), you will incur storage charges of £25 per week, per cubic meter. If no effort is made to accept delivery of your goods then Steel Vintage reserves the right to cancel your order and retain up to 50% of the order value.

(9j) Time of delivery is not of the essence in this Agreement. We will not be liable for any direct or indirect loss of profits or other financial loss or damage suffered by you through any reasonable delay or delay due to unforeseen circumstances outside of the reasonable control of Steel vintage or delay due to any reasonable rescheduling of delivery.

(9k) In the event that you would like to have Goods delivered to a location outside of the UK Mainland we can deliver to any shipping company or port on the UK Mainland if you arrange for the onward shipping. It is your responsibility to check the condition of the Goods at the location where we deliver (this can either be you personally, a representative of the shipping company, a relative or an employee of yours). Liability for the Goods becomes yours when the Delivery Note is signed either by you or your agent.

(9l) All Products must be signed for on delivery by an adult aged 18 years or over unless otherwise agreed.

(10) Short Delivery, Faulty or Damaged Goods

(10a) Steel Vintage are dedicated to your satisfaction. Should an incorrect item be delivered, or there is a fault with an item you have ordered then please contact Steel Vintage immediately and we will ensure the issue is resolved. In the case that a replacement has to be ordered then the replacement will be delivered to the original delivery address and the original lead time may re-apply. Steel Vintage will advise you further.

(10b) Cosmetic/Transit Damage:

A standard delivery service includes the delivery team unwrapping the goods from their protective packaging. At this point we request that you inspect the goods for any transit damage. If you find that there is any transit damage then this must be noted on the delivery sheet by you. The delivery team will also take any photographs if there is any visible damage, which will be passed on to Steel Vintage. If, for any reason, the delivery team are unable to take photos then we may require you to take photos to send to us. We recommend that you keep the goods in your property and Steel Vintage will contact you to resolve the issue. If transit damage was not noted at the point of delivery then you will have to report any transit damage to Steel Vintage within 48 hours of receiving the delivery.

If you choose not to have the goods unwrapped (and you would like to keep them boxed), or the goods were delivered with a delivery service that does not include unwrapping, then you will have to inform Steel Vintage of any transit damage within 48 hours of receiving the delivery. Claims for transit damage will not be accepted outside of this time period. We will also request photographs of any visible damage to be provided to Steel Vintage.

(10c) We do not accept claims for cosmetic/transit damage caused once the goods are outside of the notice periods laid out in points 10a & 10b above, and once the goods are outside of Steel Vintage control.

(11) Lead times

(11a) For made to order furniture there is an average lead time of 6-10 weeks. The lead-time is the number of weeks we expect your order take to make based on our existing production schedule. After your order is completed it will be delivered to you usually within 7 to 14 working days depending on your location or availability.

(11b) For clearance or ex-display furniture then please check with Steel Vintage for the lead time. In most cases the furniture can be delivered within 7 to 14 days, however this can be longer depending on the availability of that product at the time of ordering.
