Placing An Order

When you place an order with us it will be deemed that you have read, understood and agreed to these Terms & Conditions.

 

When you place an order, we will require your name, telephone number, email address, credit/debit card, phone and address details. This information is required in order to process your request or inform you of acceptance of the order. A contact phone number is needed to allow us to get in touch with you about your order & when a delivery company is used for them to schedule a delivery time slot.

 

All prices on our website are shown and charged in GBP (£). 

Once you have placed your order, we will send to you an order confirmation email detailing the products that you have ordered. This is not an acceptance of your order by us. Your order is an offer to buy a product or products from us and your offer will not be deemed to have been accepted by us until we have sent you a dispatch confirmation email, as below.

Please note that we will not be able to meet any obligations as a result of the following reasons:

• If the product you ordered is out of stock.
• We are unable to authorise your payment.
• If it is identified that there is a product description or pricing error.
• If customers do not reach any order criteria outlined in the Terms & Conditions.
• If our delivery companies are temporarily unable to deliver due to exceptional conditions that are beyond our control including hazardous weather and accidents.

Should there be an issue with your order, a member of The Crafty Couple team will contact you either by phone or email.

 

Please check the details of the order confirmation email and the dispatch confirmation email carefully. It is your responsibility to notify us if there are any errors or inconsistencies by contacting us directly.

The Crafty Couple reserve the right to reject any offer of purchase by you at any point. Please note that whilst we will make every effort and reasonable care to keep your order details and payment secure, we cannot be responsible for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any information that you supply when accessing or ordering from The Crafty Couple website. 

Once an order has been dispatched by us, we cannot guarantee amendments including: cancelling or delaying the delivery, nor changing the delivery address.

Products and Materials

โ€‹

Product Descriptions

We endeavour to present the most recent, most accurate, and most reliable information on our website at all times. However, there may be occasions when some of the information featured on the website may contain incomplete data, typographical errors, or inaccuracies. Any errors are wholly unintentional and we apologise if incorrect information is reflected in product prices, item availability, or in any way affects your individual order.

Please be aware that we present our content 'as is' and make no claims to its accuracy, either express or implied. Please also note that because the colours of the products you will see on the website depend on your monitor/screen, we cannot guarantee that the display of colour will be accurate and some colours may vary.

We reserve the right to amend errors or to update product information at any time without prior notice. In the event that a product is listed at an incorrect price due to photo-graphical error, typographical error or error in pricing information from our suppliers, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for product listed at the incorrect price (regardless of whether or not the order has been confirmed and you have been charged). If your payment card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we shall issue you a full refund. 

 

Product Variation

Please note some of our products are hand-made and/or have a unique finish, shape, colour, natural imperfections, texture and may vary from the picture you see on our website, and/or from one product to the other if you order more than one. Dimensions may also slightly vary. 

By the very nature of both the materials we use, and the type of industrial furniture we are producing, our wood could contain all of the following characterful traits: (which are expected within each piece and for which we are unable to offer any kind of discount or refund)

               - Bandsaw marks across the grain.

               - Small ‘chip out’ marks from the planer

               - Knots/cracks/shakes

               - Small machining marks

               - Natural colour variation 

Hopefully all of these attributes will add to the uniqueness of your piece, but should you want your piece to be reduced from this type of rustic character as much as possible, please make sure to specify a quote for prime oak, or let us know that you need a surface extra flat/smooth etc so that we are able to quote accordingly.

โ€‹

We always endeavour to choose the best boards for Prime Oak orders, however there will still be small knots, varied wood grain and medullaray rays, depending on the wood we have in stock.

โ€‹

Waney Edge items are different every time and can have high levels of character. We fix any large natural cracks and large knots with walnut butterfly joints, however these won't be on every order. 

โ€‹

We will not accept returns, make adjustments or alterations, or offer refunds due to issues arising from the customer's personal preference on wood grain, pattern, knots, medullary rays, colour variation or any other naturally occurring elements. Natural wood is varied and beautiful and the grain can even change in the same piece.

โ€‹

All wood species can react to exposure to sunlight, changes in temperature and humidity. We cannot be held responsible for changes in the wood due to environmental factors, once delivery has been made. All our wood is dried to a humidity of 8-10% moisture. In very dry or hot settings this could decrease, leading to cracks/movement; likewise a very humid or wet environment could cause the wood to warp, and joints to separate. We make our furniture with wood movement in mind; however we can’t take responsibility should the piece react to the temperature or humidity of your own environment. Please see our Care Guide for more information.

โ€‹

Our furniture is not suitable for outdoor use, or use in bathrooms and wet-rooms unless specified.

โ€‹

Across the our website, and in our communications with you, we may describe the oak thickness at 25mm, 35mm or 50mm - these thicknesses are umbrella terms used to describe the starting thickness of oak used, finished board thickness will be less. If you need a specific wood thickness you must let us know when ordering.

โ€‹

All our products can be made to measure to fit your space, however we do not guarantee mm precision unless we are specified to do so, and some hardware such as nuts and bolts may protrude - please allow for +/- 25mm on all dimensions. (Or about 5%). The tolerances are likely to mainly occur in the height and depth of the piece as we are using solid boards which can vary slightly in size depending on how much each particular board needs sanding.

โ€‹

If you require an exact size for your item, for fitting into an alcove for example, please make sure to specify that the measurement needs to be exact. We can’t take responsibility for an item which doesn’t fit or is too small if the measurement is under the 5% of tolerance.

โ€‹

Due to the nature of the finishes applied to our product, the final finishes may vary from photos online or samples we send out, but we will always do our best a get a match.

โ€‹

When working to customers' design specifications and drawings we will not be held fully responsible for issues with design, functionality, or stability/wood movement, unless a sample product is ordered or testing is paid for. We endeavour to insure any product ordered sent out is in full working order, and to our usual high standard, however if we do encounter unexpected design issues, or need to alter a customers' design we will charge accordingly.

โ€‹

We will not be held responsible for any damaged caused by customers making adjustments or amendments to their order, for example the fitting of their own legs to table tops etc. 

โ€‹

We cannot be held responsible for customers preference to design elements that are not discussed or raised at the point of ordering, and will make educated assumptions based on the style of the product, and it’s functionality etc.

โ€‹

We recommend that items of shelving, cabinets and drawers should be fixed to a wall for safety. Please mention whilst ordering if you will require fixings, or holes drilling. Items of furniture left free standing are done so at the customer’s own risk.

โ€‹

In the circumstance that an item is to be fixed to a wall, floor, or similar, it is the customer’s responsibility to check the suitability of their property, wall type, etc. We will not be held responsible for damages caused to customer’s property in the process, or as a result, of the customer attaching their furniture to the wall, floor etc. We would recommend the customer always use an experienced tradesman. 

โ€‹

Never climb or hang from your furniture. 

โ€‹

Always place heavier items at the bottom of shelving and storage to avoid the piece becoming top heavy.

 

Order Cancellation & Returns

All orders have a cooling off period of 14 days - unless orders have already been received in this time. 

 

If you place an order and wish to cancel it, please contact us. If your order has begun production or has bespoke materials which have been ordered, please be aware that once an order has been accepted by us, we cannot cancel it. Please read our returns policy which details how to return unwanted or unsuitable items for a refund.

โ€‹

For bespoke or made to measure items we may ask for a deposit to secure your order; this deposit is for the purchase of bespoke materials. If the order is cancelled and has either begun production or has had materials ordered in wait for production it is therefore non-refundable and any subsequent costs incurred by us will be invoiced. 

โ€‹

We cannot be held responsible for design errors with manufacture of products designed or instructed by you the customer. Please ensure you have measured the space you wish to place the item accurately before design and ensure that floor weights are not exceeded. If you are unsure of a product weight please ask us and we will give the most accurate information as possible before manufacture. 

โ€‹

For made to measure items, a refund will only be available if the product arrives faulty and cannot be repaired or replaced. 

โ€‹

Delivery

โ€‹

  • Please consider the access to the location you are having the product made for. Will it fit through all doors, corridors, stairwells etc.? All our dining tables are delivered with the legs detached for easy delivery - except for extending prism as this requires a full base to be attached prior to delivery. We can disassemble some other items for easier access if arranged, and will not be held responsible for items not fitting into the space required, and any re-deliveries and alterations will have to be charged to the customer.

  • Our standard delivery is for a 1-man service, this can be upgraded to a 2-man service for £20 - this can be done at any time prior to the collection of your item from our workshop. Please ensure you are able to assist the driver with large furniture items or have someone able to do so on delivery when using our standard delivery service .

  • Most of the time our couriers work on set prices, however, we reserve the right to potentially increase the delivery costs in the following circumstances:

    • You live in a remote part of the UK.

    • Access to the room/delivery location is difficult. If there are several floors to manoeuvre up, or long distances to carry the furniture, it is vital you inform us before delivery is attempted.

  • Any attempted and failed deliveries due to access issues will be charged to the customer, along with the cost of any necessary alterations.

  • Any delivery dates or times set out are estimates only. While we will make all reasonable efforts to deliver the goods within the time or times agreed we will not be responsible for any losses caused to the Buyer as a result of late delivery, and are unable to offer compensation if the agreed delivery date is missed or cancelled by the courier or ourselves.

  • We will always endeavour to complete any work in as timely way as possible, but unless agreed to beforehand with the Buyer, we will not be subject to any subsequent arbitrary delivery dates requested or insisted upon by the Buyer or their agents.

  • We use third party delivery companies; your contact details will be sent onto them to arrange delivery. The delivery companies are responsible for organising the delivery of your goods, and may not be completely flexible on delivery dates. 

  • You will receive a notification no more than 48 hours in advance of a delivery with a 3 hour time slot, if this doesn't work for you, you can reject this and they'll allocate you another on their next available date. You can reject as many times as you wish until a time suits you. 

  • It is the Buyer’s responsibility to inspect goods on delivery for damages, please make us aware of any damaged or faulty goods within 24 hours of receiving your order - anything over 24 hours and we will not be able to log your claim with any of the courier services for compensation. 

  • Surcharge prices will apply on top of the free delivery for postcodes listed in the ‘Surcharge Areas’ section below.

  • Sometimes it will be requested, during the ordering process, that the customer organises for an additional number of people to be present to assist with the delivery of large orders. If this has not been arranged by the customer the drivers reserve the right to refuse to deliver the order, as it will be too heavy and dangerous for them to lift alone.
