Terms and Conditions

Welcome to the Brentham Furniture Website

Welcome to Brentham Furniture Online. The terms and conditions as set out within this document apply to the use of this Website and orders transacted on it. When accessing or committing a transaction on our website you are agreeing to our terms and conditions and agree to be legally bound by them.

These Terms And Conditions do not affect your statutory rights.

Before you proceed with your order, if you have any questions relating to the terms and conditions you are agreeing to please contact us. Please contact us in writing or by email us using the address shown in the contact us section below.


Your Order

You can generate your order when clicking your chosen items and available options from our menu for Goods or Services. You can edit your order before you commit to buy.

After submission you will receive an immediate Acknowledgement of the order placed and a unique order number will be allocated to it. Please keep a note of this number, as it will be required for identification or tracking purposes.
This is not an acceptance of your order.

When your payment has been accepted and authorised and we have determined the availability of your required products you will receive a second confirmation your order either by email and or post and this will then be regarded as a legally binding contract between us.

Note if in the unlikely event there is going to be a delivery delay for any reason you will be contacted, we can discuss the options or alternatives available to you.
The VAT amount will be shown on your order. Our VAT registration number will also be shown on this document.

In Force Majeure (extreme circumstances outside of our control) our company may, at its absolute discretion, cancel any contract for the supply of goods or services pursuant to the order form, or cancel the manufacture and/or delivery of the goods or services.

In these circumstances our company will endeavour to discuss other suitable alternatives that may be available to you.

We reserve the right not to accept any order if any of the following criteria are true:

• We have insufficient stock to expedite the order
• Any of the items ordered was incorrectly described or priced on the Website
• Your payment was not authorised

If your order is cancelled by us we will notify you as soon as is possible but in any event within thirty days of cancelation. We will refund the amount paid in respect of the contract.

We will not be obliged or liable for any compensation.


Bespoke or Special Orders

All orders which are bespoke/special orders are not subject to the cooling off period, we will have commissioned a supplier to manufacture them for you.

All orders which have not been selected from our stock are by definition ‘Special’ or ‘Bespoke’ orders.

To clarify our precise definition of a ‘Special’ or ‘Bespoke’ order is a product configured by you on our Website where you have chosen selectable options e.g. by range of fabric, by colour or by size. Where you are configuring (selecting options) to build your own product. This product will be made specifically to your chosen custom options and therefore becomes a Bespoke/Special order product.


Stock Orders

If after ordering an item from our stock you have reason to cancel your order, you may cancel your order at any time prior to despatch. Please email us at: orders@brenthamfurniture.co.uk

We will email a confirmation of your cancellation. You will receive a refund using the same method as your original order.


The Price of Goods and Services

The price of goods and services will include VAT (value added tax) at the applicable rate. Any changes in the VAT rate between the date of your order and the delivery date may change the cost shown and may require adjustment to the price payable where this occurs we will inform you of any changes as soon as possible and you will be deemed to have accepted those changes unless you specifically tell us otherwise, or (where the order is a ‘Stock Order’ and not a ‘Bespoke’ or ‘Special’ Order) reject the goods on delivery.

Your order may show charges for delivery assembly or another service. In the event you request a different service to that requested originally, we reserve the right to apply further additional charges to your order.


Pricing Policy

Any headline price indicated on our site will be in line with our supplier’s guidelines. The terminology used differs from one manufacturer to another. The following are just a few of the more commonly used terms:

Consumer Price Guide (this being the price the Brand, Manufacturer or Supplier suggest the Dealer should charge the consumer).

Recommended Retail Price Guide (this being the price the Brand or Manufacturer suggest the Dealer should charge the consumer).

Retail Price Guide (this being the price the Brand, Manufacturer or Supplier suggest the Dealer should charge the consumer).

Showroom price Guide (this being the price the Brand, Manufacturer or Supplier suggest the Dealer should charge the consumer).

The lower price offered by us is a discounted price.

We pride ourselves in being exceptionally competitive in price. We have a policy; we are NEVER KNOWINGLY beaten on Price or Service.

In the unlikely event, and where it is brought to our attention, a competitor is offering a lower price on the identical item will match or better this price. It is our policy to establish that any lower price has been offered by a legitimate accredited dealer and has not been made in error.


Payment

When ordering online you have the option to pay a 20% deposit or pay in full.

Where a deposit only is paid the goods will need to be paid for prior to delivery by BACS or debit card only. The store will contact you to advise the payment process.

No Debit or Credit Card details submitted on line will be stored directly by us when you place an order with us.

Your payment will be processed directly with the World Pay portal. World Pay offers a protected secure connection to your bank when requesting payment authorization.


Delivery Times

Every reasonable effort will be made to adhere to the delivery dates stated at the initiation of you order, however, these dates should be viewed as an estimated period. Such dates will be provided in good faith and based upon the information provided to us by our suppliers at the time. Special orders can be delayed for reasons beyond the control of our suppliers.

Our company will not accept any liability for any loss or inconvenience for any delay in delivery.


Delivery of Goods

Where a delivery charge is applicable and is stated at check- out any subsequent change of address may incur additional delivery costs.

We deliver by way of our own transport or a chosen carrier depending on the nature of the products ordered or your delivery area.

Adequate and safe access to your room of choice is your responsibility as is the provision of safe passage free from vulnerable items such as floor lamps occasional furniture pictures or any other removable items, which may hinder the delivery process. If our operatives deem the delivery access to be unsafe or inappropriate they may at their discretion decide to terminate the delivery pending at another time. Please note if a delivery is re scheduled under these circumstances additional delivery charges may apply.

Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the CUSTOMER to ensure that furniture ordered will fit into the space it is intended to be – if items of furniture do not fit easily into your house or the room of your choice it is NOT the responsibility of Brentham Furniture to get the furniture into that room. If you ask them to attempt this and as a result damaged occurs to the furniture this is the liability of the CUSTOMER and not of Brentham Furniture.

We will attempt to make delivery to you a maximum of three times. If you turn down all offered delivery slots then we will assume that you no longer wish to purchase the goods, we will therefore retain your deposit and return your goods into stock.

In the event you are not available at the time of the attempted delivery please contact us or our delivery contractor within 24 hours to make a new appointment. An alternative delivery date can be arranged but further charges will apply.
If we do not hear from you within this period, it is likely the goods will be returned to us and in this instance charges will apply.

Time of delivery is not the essence in these terms and conditions except to the extent that we will fulfil all orders within 90 days of our acceptance of the order unless you expressly agree otherwise. We will not be liable for any loss or damage incurred by you through any reasonable delay due to unforeseen circumstances outside of the reasonable control of our company or any reasonable rescheduling of delivery.

Where you have elected to have your goods delivered to a third-party carrier or other such establishment engaged by you it is the responsibility of that entity or person to accept the delivery on your behalf and sign for it accordingly. We will not accept any responsibility liability or damage after the signed acceptance.
