Terms & Conditions

 

We expresscarpet.co.uk have made every effort to ensure that the information and content of this website is accurate and up to date. We cannot be held liable for any errors, omissions or changes in price. All products are subject to availability. All images on the website are for illustration purposes only and are intended to give a general guide of how the product may look. The actual product may differ slightly to that in the illustration. All products are usually delivered in rolls or pallets, unless stated otherwise. Standard delivery time is 2-5 Working days. A card will be left if no one is home to accept the parcel, and the goods returned to the carrier's local depot to await your contact. We will endeavour to contact you to arrange a suitable day for the delivery if your chosen day is not available, and may also contact you to confirm your chosen date and time if selected in our checkout. All prices are inclusive of VAT unless otherwise stated.

 

1 - Ordering

All orders can be placed online at www.expresscarpet.co.uk 24 hours a day, 7 Days a week. All orders must be paid for in full before they will be shipped or ordered from the manufacturer.

 

1.1 General Delivery Information

All orders are processed and shipped in the order that they are received. Standard delivery time is 2 to 5 working days. Delivery times may increase around holidays and peak shipping seasons. The freight delivery service you receive may vary among carrier companies. Since most carriers deliver to the curb side immediately adjacent to their vehicle on both standard and pallet delivery services and regard inside delivery as an extra service cost, it may be necessary for you to assist or move a product into your home. This is the case especially if you live in a block of flats, as carriers will only deliver to the ground floor entrance to the block. If you have alternative delivery requirements, please contact us prior to dispatch of your order. Be sure to include a phone number in case the carrier needs to notify you of something in relation to your arranged delivery.

If you need your order to be shipped to an alternative address to the billing address, please specify during the checkout process when the option is available. Although we will make every effort to amend mistaken delivery addresses after the order has been placed, we cannot be held responsible for late deliveries if the incorrect address has been specified in the checkout by the customer. If the parcel must then be forwarded to a new address, we reserve the right to charge re-delivery / forwarding fees for this service if necessary and also reserve the right to deduct any such fees from any refund given should the order be subsequently cancelled.

 

1.2 Royal Mail Parcels

Items small enough for delivery with Royal Mail are usually delivered by 1st Class post, but please allow up to 2-3 Working days.Once the order has been paid for, the cutting process begins. At this point, your order will may be liable on cancellation / amendment for any bespoke cutting fees due as per the bespoke cutting fee section of our Terms & Conditions.

 

1.3 Express 3rd Party Delivery (Monday to Friday - All Day 8am – 6pm):

How are your items delivered?

  • Laminate flooring and large underlay orders are delivered on a curb-side Pallet delivery as standard.
  • All other items are delivered on a curb-side 1-man service as standard.

 

Pricing on each delivery service may vary due to the size and nature of your order, as well as the care required for your delivery. Shipping charges will be added as required in the checkout and any additional surcharges due to your delivery location will also be added at this point prior to completing your order. As Laminate Flooring is fragile in nature, we take particular care in delivering this to you on a custom built pallet. As this is a premium courier service, delivery on Laminate Flooring is usually higher than other items. Return collection charges are also more expensive so please bear this in mind before placing your order.

Our 1-man service is completed by a 3rd Party Courier where on some heavy items the driver may often require assistance with your order. If this isn’t suitable or you have any special delivery requirements please get in touch with us.

All orders placed by midnight on any given working day can be delivered as early as 3 Working Days from that day (e.g. Tuesday orders can be delivered by Friday. Friday orders can be delivered by Wednesday). Please see below for a step by step guide to how we process your order. This is not a definitive guide. Please be aware that some orders can be processed much quicker than others, but we will always dispatch for delivery to you where possible on the date you have specified during the checkout. If you need your product sooner, please contact us via telephone and we may be able to offer a speedier service where possible.

Day 0: We receive your order and it is sent across to the warehouse for picking

Day 1: Your order is queued and cut by our precision cutting machines if necessary

Day 2: Your order is checked, packed and dispatched to you

Day 3: Your order is delivered by 3rd Party Courier to your chosen shipping address  

 

*Please Note: Deliveries are to the ground floor as standard, which includes Two Man services. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee an upstairs delivery as none of the Two Man courier firms will arrange this 100% of the time due to health and safety and risk of damage to property by carrying a large item upstairs.

 

1.4 Offshore / Remote Locations

Please note we do deliver to all offshore or remote locations, including Channel Islands, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Scilly Isles, Scottish Highlands, Scottish Islands and Northern Ireland. All prices to these locations are considerably more expensive and are listed on our delivery page. Please note: collections from these locations in the event of an order cancellation are also subject to additional charges which will be chargeable prior to delivery or deductible from any associated refunds on cancellation / order amendment.

 

1.5 Delivery Times and Delivery Delays

The 3rd Party Courier responsible for delivery, will try where possible to deliver on the time and date selected by the customer. In the event that special instructions are given by telephone or e-mail during or after the order has been placed, please be aware that expresscarpet.co.uk will not entertain any claim for compensation because of a late delivery, which is due to a third party carrier and is out of our control. Special instructions are a non-guaranteed request and are carried out at the carrier’s discretion. Any claims of this nature should be taken up directly with the carrier.

 

1.6 Carpet Cutting

Orders placed for flooring cut from different rolls / pieces can differ slightly in their colour variation. If you require more than 1 cut for a single room, please inform us upon placing your order and we will make every effort to ensure cuts are taken from the same roll where possible. This is not a guaranteed service and we cannot be held responsible for slight colour variation which occurs as a result of cuts being taken from different rolls. 

 

1.7 Roll Sizing

The width of your flooring will always be specified during the selection process, however on rare occasions the manufacturer’s size may vary by a margin of up to approximately +/- 1%. We would always advise customers to take this into account when deciding on the measurements to purchase. We would always advise that if in doubt, buy slightly more than required rather than being disappointed if your order is slightly shorter than required. We cannot be held responsible for orders which are too short or too long within these standard manufacturing tolerances.

 

1.8 Cancellation & Refusal

We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order at any time prior to completed delivery, without being liable for any damages or costs incurred.

 

2 - Delivery

2.1 Distance Selling Regulations 2000

You have a right to cancel your order (prior to shipment, see cancellation terms below) for any item purchased on this website, for a full refund. However, if an order has already been shipped and has left our possession, we will require you to pay the associated costs of returning the item to us before we will refund the purchase. Also, under the Distance Selling Regulations, you have 7 statutory working days starting from the working day after you have received your order, to cancel and return the product for a full refund. However, the buyer is required to pay all postage costs back to expresscarpet.co.uk and the product must be unused and with the original packing. If the product has been used (fitting / attempted fitting) or you do not have the packaging, this will be deemed as acceptance of goods and we will accept or decline the return at our discretion.

 

2.2 Order Cancellations and Refused Deliveries

You may cancel your order for a full refund prior to your order being shipped. If you cancel your order after it has been shipped, you are responsible for any and all freight charges incurred by expresscarpet.co.uk. Any unpaid freight charges will be deducted from your refund (see 'Distance Selling Regulations' above). If you refuse to accept delivery of your order for any other reason than the product being damaged in transit, you are liable for all outward and return freight charges incurred by your refusal. If it is found that any of the larger products upon delivery will not fit through any doors or stairwells and the product is subsequently returned or refused, you are responsible for all outward and return carriage costs. Please be aware that bespoke items also carry a minimum Bespoke Cutting Fee. We would therefore recommend that you ensure the product will fit and can be transported to its ground floor point of delivery easily. We include product weights and dimensions on our website where available, and if you are unsure about anything you must call us before placing the order.

 

2.3 Restricted Access and Delivery Terms

Due to the size of some delivery vehicles, any carriers delivering on our behalf must be informed of any restrictions regarding access for the delivering vehicles. This includes (but is not limited to); steps, any overhanging/low trees/shrubs, steep driveways, narrow lanes, tight bends or any other restrictions that may make it difficult for the delivering vehicle to gain access to the point of delivery. Expresscarpet.co.uk will not accept any claims for compensation arising from non/failed/refused delivery of any item where the carriers or expresscarpet.co.uk were not made aware of any points of issue regarding access restrictions. In the event that the item is refused/cancelled due to these restrictions, the customer will be liable for all carriage charges. Due to health & safety regulations, upstairs deliveries are at the carrier's discretion and are not guaranteed. This includes (but is not limited to) steps that are immediately outside the premises, which couriers are required to climb in order to gain access to the property. Delivery time scales are approximate; often it can be quicker than stated. However, if delivery takes longer than the time stated we will not entertain any claims for compensation. The delivery guides are rough estimates and the time scales are often out of our control. We will endeavour to notify you if delivery is going to take longer than originally expected and all timed delivery charges will be refunded either partially or in full at our discretion should the delivery arrive considerably later than booked.

 

2.4 Damage in Transit / Shortages

If the parcel(s) you receive have any damage on the exterior packaging you must check the contents and list the damage on the driver's delivery note, if the words 'goods delivered in good condition' are on the delivery form next to your signature they need to be crossed out also. If you are at all worried about the goods being damaged, you must sign for the goods as ‘Damaged’ on receipt. Any damage must be reported to expresscarpet.co.uk within 48 hours of signing. If someone else is signing on your behalf they must be made aware of the above. If the roll is damaged and you have failed to make any attempt to list this on the delivery note, expresscarpet.co.uk or the carrier cannot be held responsible. This does not affect your statutory rights and in the event of the goods being faulty, they will be repaired or replaced.

 

2.5 Delivery Arrangements

The Delivery Arrangements section in the checkout must be completed. If you select that the order can be left with a neighbour or delivered to an alternative address, the person signing on your behalf must be made aware of our terms above regarding damage in transit and shortages. As carriers and delivery drivers are not under our control, we cannot be held responsible for their actions when delivering and if you encounter any problems they must be taken up directly with the carrier. You can also opt for the order to be left in a 'secure location' but only provided that a signed discretionary note is left for the courier to take as proof of delivery. If the order is then left in this location by the delivery driver, and is subsequently stolen, expresscarpet.co.uk or the carrier cannot be held responsible for following your instructions. We will always endeavour to deliver at a convenient time for you, but we cannot be held responsible for any delays caused due to events that are out of our control.

 

2.6 Problems With Your Order

As damages can occur in transit and issues can arise to prevent the delivery that are out of our control, we cannot accept any liability for time or financial loss as a result of, for example but not limited to; advanced fitter booking, employment holiday etc. These provisions made are by your choice and at your discretion, but do not affect your statutory rights. We would also advise all customers to check their order in full prior to arranging any additional services or aforementioned costs, as we cannot be held liable for additional costs incurred. If your order is found to be incorrect on delivery or inspection, we will however arrange for a replacement item or refund for any incorrect items at no additional cost to you where possible.

 

 

3 - Returns and Faulty Items Policy 

3.1 Refunds

If the customer wishes to return a product within their 7 days statutory rights period a full refund minus delivery/collection charges and bespoke cutting fees will be issued if the following conditions are met:

Goods must be sealed in the original packaging.
Goods must not have been used, tampered with or fitted in any way
Goods must be returned in full, including all parts and any free products or documentation.

Free Gifts & Related Free / Discount Promotions are excluded from the refundable value.

In accordance with Distance Selling Regulations, we require an email confirmation that you wish to return your item(s).

 

3.2 Collection Charges

We will collect with our couriers and provide you with a refund as long as the un-fitted flooring can still be collected and safely transported back in the original packaging. A charge for collection will be deducted from the refund if the product(s) are untainted and the customer changes their mind. This charge is dependent upon your location and the weight of the product(s). Please be aware that return collection charges are usually more expensive than original outbound delivery charges. If we have delivered the wrong order to you, or if the products arrive faulty, you will not be charged for the collection. If a product is returned as damaged/faulty by the customer, and upon inspection is found to be undamaged/without fault; we reserve the right to deduct collection charges and bespoke cutting fees from your refund. 

 

3.3 Bespoke Cutting Fee

When placing an order, your order is usually cut uniquely in the requested style/colour and to a bespoke size. If you wish to cancel your order after the item has been cut (cutting commences after payment is received), we charge a minimum cutting fee of £25, or 25% of the total value of the refundable part of your order, excluding delivery - whichever is greater.

Boxed / Retail packaged items such as Underlay & Adhesives are not cut to size and are therefore not subject to Bespoke Cutting Fees.

eg.
£150 item would incur a cutting charge of £37.50
£50 item would incur a cutting charge of £25
