TERMS AND CONDITIONS
channelsdesign.com is a site operated by Channels Design Ltd. We are registered in England and Wales under company no. 06394153 and our registered office is at 1 New Kings Road, London SW6 4SB. Our VAT number is 925 4138 29.
Please read the terms and conditions carefully before placing an order. When placing an order at HQ@channelsdesign.com you are accepting all of the following terms and conditions.
Order acceptance and the completion of the contract between you and Channels will take place on the dispatch of the products ordered by you, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it. Non-acceptance of an order may be a result of one of the following:
- The product you ordered being unavailable from stock
- Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment
- The identification of a pricing or product description error
- You not meeting the eligibility to order criteria set out in the Terms & Conditions
If there are any problems with your order, you will be contacted by a member of our Customer Services Representatives. We reserve the right to reject any offer to purchase by you at any time.
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure but, in the absence of negligence on our part, we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that access is possible to, and within the delivery location at the point of purchase. The customer also needs to ensure that there is adequate room to take the furniture through doorways, taking note of any restricted passageways, stairs and awkward turns.
We only deliver through a ground floor or basement entrance and go up to a second floor level. We cannot deliver above this level unless there is suitable lift access and we will not deliver items through windows.
If you require a special delivery, any extra charges are to be paid by you, the customer. We sell some large and heavy products that on health and safety grounds require more than a two man delivery – we will call you to advise you of any extra cost involved in delivering before your order is processed.
If we attempt to make a delivery on the delivery date/time-slot that you have accepted and no one is present to receive the goods, necessitating a repeat delivery, you will incur a repeat delivery charge, which must be paid prior to the redelivery, even if the original delivery was free of charge. This repeat delivery charge will also apply if you cancel an agreed delivery date/ time-slot less than two working days prior to the agreed date. The repeat delivery charge will be the original delivery charge.
If your goods remain at our warehouse for more than four weeks, during which time you fail to accept delivery/redelivery (despite Channels having contacted you to do so), you will incur storage charges of £75 per week. We also reserve the right to cancel your order and retain up to 50% of you order value.
CONTRACT CANCELLATIONS AND RETURNS PROCEDURE
You are entitled to cancel this contract if you so wish provided that you exercise your right and notify us within 7 working days after the day on which you receive your delivery. To exercise your right of cancellation you must give written notice to Channels via letter or email with full details of your order.
If you wish to cancel this contract once your order has been dispatched please note the following procedure will apply:
Should you wish to return a furniture item we will arrange to collect this item from you and will apply an appropriate collection charge, which is calculated as the original delivery charge (to cover the collection costs) plus a £25 handling fee (to cover restocking costs). The charge will be deducted from the refund value when processed. To arrange a collection please contact us by emailing HQ@channelsdesign.com or calling 020 7371 0301.
You will be reimbursed to the card with which you paid for the goods once the goods have been received back into our Distribution Centre. Please note that your original delivery charges will not be refunded. A refund of the delivery charge will only be given in the instance of incorrect, damaged or faulty goods.
The goods must arrive back with us in an undamaged, fully resalable condition and with its original product packaging undamaged and intact. Channels reserves the right to refuse to process a refund on any item that is not returned to us in fully resalable condition.
Products which fall into the following categories will not be refunded unless they are proven to be faulty:
– Any goods made to a customer’s own specifications, made to measure or personalised items
– Self assembly furniture cannot be returned once assembly is part or fully completed
– Mattresses or mattress toppers
If you wish to exercise your right to cancel this contract prior to order dispatch, please email HQ@channelsdesign.com or call 020 7371 0301 immediately. If your order has been dispatched, the returns procedure will apply.
This does not affect your statutory rights.
DEFECTIVE OR DAMAGED GOODS
We strongly advise you to thoroughly check your goods upon receipt. To protect your interests, any claim concerning damaged and/or defective goods must be notified to Channels by emailing HQ@channelsdesign.com or calling 020 7371 0301 within 48 hours of delivery. We do not accept claims for damage caused by the customer. We may ask you to email us photos of damage for our records and to assess the validity of a claim.
With exposure to light and air, oak will mature to a deeper colour while walnut will lighten. As such, objects placed on wood surfaces could leave ‘shadows’ when removed. Should this happen, exposure to daylight will eventually darken or lighten these areas.
FABRIC AND LEATHER
Leather is a natural product and each hide will have its own individual characteristics and natural marks. Differences in the grain, texture and colour may be apparent from one hide to another and even within the same hide. Some marking is inevitable and should be accepted as part of the individual appearance of leather furniture.
