5. Cancellation & Returns
5.1. Our 14-day returns policy means that if for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase, you can return goods in original condition within 14 days of the date you received goods, unused and in original packaging with contents in the condition they were delivered, along with a receipt of proof of purchase. We will issue a refund for the price you paid for the goods only excluding delivery costs incurred by the company.
5.2. Customers are responsible for returning goods and the costs associated in doing so back to Home & Garden Direct. Returned goods must be unmarked and free from blemishes of any kind, the total refundable amount is dependant on goods being returned to us in the same ‘good condition’ that they were received in (we would advise keeping all packaging if you are considering returning an item). We can collect items if you are unable to send them back to us (this is a chargeable service, and will be deducted from your refund) please speak to a member of our customer services team for more information on cancelling an order. Providing we have received the goods back in ‘good condition’ with a valid returns note, refunds will be issued within 30 days of the goods arriving with us.
5.3. If a customer contacts our company after the specified 14 days, Home & Garden Direct has the right assume that the order has progressed to completion. The customer will not have an automatic right to a refund.
5.4 If at any point the Customer wishes to cancel a Bespoke Order (i.e. Garden Shed(s) or any other Timber Garden Product(s), Printing Services, Modular Gala Tent(s), Gala Shade(s), Pagoda(s) or any other specialist manufactured goods), then the 30% deposit will be non refundable. If payment has been made in full then you will only be entitled to a 70% refund, as work will have already been carried out on your behalf. However we reserve the right to refuse your request for refund when full payments have been made when manufacturing bespoke work upon your instructions. If other payment terms have been agreed then you would still be liable to pay for the goods you have ordered in full if you decide to cancel and any stage of production, or a minimum of 30% of the cost of the total order would be mandatory.
5.5 In the event of a manufacturing fault claim you may be required to email or post photographic evidence to Customer Services. This will provide us with the details to make a commercial decision to either repair or replace the goods.
5.6 In a situation when we need to order specific goods to fulfil your order 50% of deposit is required. If you cancel your order after we received goods and have it ready for you to collect it we reserve right to restocking charge of 20%. We also reserve the right to refuse return request for all bespoke items build to order by our suppliers (non-standard products) in that case the full deposit will be held.
6.1. If you have notified us of a problem with the goods within 30 days of delivery, we will (subject to clause 4) either make good any shortage or non-delivery; replace or repair any goods that are damaged or defective upon delivery; or refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question.
6.2. We shall have no liability to pay any money to you by way of compensation other than any refund we make under these conditions. Our liability to you shall not in any event include losses related to any business of yours, such as loss of profits or business interruption, neither will we be responsible to you for any other loss which is not a foreseeable consequence of us being in breach of these Terms and Conditions or our legal duties.
6.3. This does not affect your statutory rights if you are a consumer, nor is it intended to exclude our liability to you for fraudulent misrepresentation or for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence.
6.4. All goods are sold in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications and are subject to any qualifications, representations or instructions contained in the documentation associated with the goods.
