TERMS & CONDITIONS
This web site is operated by GB Floors UK (“we”, “us” or “our”). All purchases made on this web site are governed by these Terms and Conditions at any time although the Terms and Conditions governing any given purchase will be those in effect at the date of your order. If you order goods after we have published the changes you will be bound by those changes. Accordingly, you should check prior to each order to ensure that you understand the precise terms and conditions applicable to your purchase.
We will confirm acceptance of your order. This will occur either by message on the website immediately after you have confirmed your order, or by us sending an e-mail to the email address you have provided to us. We may do both, in which case the acceptance will occur on whichever arrives sooner of the web message and the email. At this point the purchase contract will be made and we will supply the goods to you in accordance with your order and these Terms and Conditions.
All prices are in UK Pounds and are inclusive of VAT where applicable, at the current rate. The price of the goods will be as quoted on the web site at the time you confirm your order (usually by clicking the “checkout” button) subject only to any inadvertent technical error for which we will not be liable. If you subsequently amend your order, the prices charged will be those applicable to the amended item(s) at the time that the amended order is confirmed. Please note that as promotions are offered for a limited period of time subsequent amendments to your order may mean that certain promotions are no longer being offered.
The price of the goods does not include a charge for delivery. Certain areas may incur a delivery surcharge, such as (but not exclusive to) certain parts of Scotland, the Highlands or the Isles.
Although we endeavour to hold stock of all the items advertised for sale on our site this cannot be guaranteed, so that by acknowledging receipt of your order we are not creating a binding contract to supply what you have ordered but which we do not have in stock. The content of the site is managed daily and therefore we do our very best to keep these up to date.
In the event of unavailability for whatever reason, we will advise you of our position when we receive your order and we will await your subsequent instructions. We cannot be held responsible for the unavailability of stock due to it being discontinued by the manufacturer, or any delay caused by manufacturer in producing the product(s).
Please note that we cannot guarantee that all batches of flooring will be the same as it is impossible to guarantee this. Samples are for indication purposes only and may not represent the latest available batch of the floorcovering. Colours and quality will be within tolerance of what the factory production of that particular product is. GB Floors UK cannot be held liable and accepts no responsibility of any batch difference.
Orders will normally be dispatched within 24 hours. Wherever possible, orders received before noon will be dispatched the same day. Normal postal lead times (provided your flooring is not coming from the EU) are: England, Scotland and Wales: 3-7 working days, but please allow up to twenty-one days for delivery. We will always do our best to inform you about any delay and endeavour to get your purchase to you as soon as possible.
Delivery is a one-man delivery, and the delivery driver may require assistance for larger items.
Deliveries where possible are to ground floor only, drivers are not insured to go upstairs.
In the instance that access is difficult, it may need to be a curb-side delivery.
Although every effort is made to deliver your flooring on a selected date, GB Floors UK cannot be held responsible or liable for any delay or cost caused by delay.
