      6. Acceptance of Orders

        There will be no contract of any kind between you and us unless and until we actually dispatch the goods to you. Your order is an offer to buy from us. Nothing that we do or say will amount to any acceptance of that offer until we actually dispatch the goods to you. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the goods to you without giving any reason. To ensure availability of all our products customers may be limited to a maximum number of items. If we are out of stock of a particular product for any reason beyond our reasonable control, we are unable to supply a particular item, we will not be liable to you.

        We will not be held liable for any errors of understanding or any costs incurred due to that understanding where orders are placed by telephone.

        7. Delivery

          Delivery will be made to the address specified by you on the completed order form.

          We aim to ensure delivery within thirty days of placing an order and we will take all reasonable steps to meet this delivery time. We do not guarantee delivery will take place within any specific dates or times. Although we aim to achieve a next working day delivery on orders received on working days before 1100 this is not guaranteed. We will usually attempt to contact you if there is any reason for the dispatch of your order to be delayed.

          We use external parcel delivery companies to fulfil our deliveries and we do not have direct control over these services. We will not be held responsible for delivery delays caused by circumstances outside our control howsoever caused. Delivery conditions and signatures for delivery will vary dependent on carrier used. All goods must be signed for on delivery by an adult aged 18 years or over.

          If a carrier attempts to deliver your order to the delivery address as arranged with you but there is nobody at the delivery address to accept your order, the driver will usually leave notification of attempted delivery and you will need to contact that delivery company to arrange redelivery. We cannot be held responsible for delivery companies failing to leave non-delivery notification, failed deliveries or any costs incurred by you in arranging redelivery.

          The delivery services we use cover most UK residential addresses with individual postcodes. Selected caravan parks, camp sites and holiday homes may be excluded, please check your postcode.

          Whilst every effort will be made to ensure that any goods ordered are delivered within the period specified for delivery of such goods on the relevant page any dates quoted for delivery of the Goods are approximate only and we shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of your order however caused. Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the Contract. Your order may be delivered by us in advance of the estimated delivery date. If delivery is delayed due to any cause beyond our reasonable control, the delivery date will be extended by a reasonable period and we will attempt to contact you to notify you of this.

          You are responsible for providing us with a full and accurate delivery address. The delivery point must be accessible to the public and the driver must be able to park within 25m of this point. Customers must have someone available at this address between the normal delivery hours of 0800 to 1800 on the expected delivery day. It is accepted that deliveries may take place outside of these hours. With regard to new build, refurbishment and other construction site locations it is essential that you confirm that the address is known to local couriers and has received deliveries and handled collections previously.

          The order may at our discretion be delivered in instalments. Each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure by us to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these conditions or any claim by you in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle you to treat the contract as a whole as repudiated.

          If we fail to deliver the goods (or any instalment) for any reason other than any cause beyond our reasonable control or your fault, and we are accordingly liable to you, our liability shall be limited to the price of the goods.

          If you fail to take delivery of the goods or fail to give us adequate delivery instructions then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to us, we may cancel the contract and refund to you the price of the goods less the cost of their delivery and the cost of their being returned to us.

          We specifically cannot be held responsible for any loss, damages, liability or expense incurred by you related to late or non delivery of an order.

          For international shipments any additional taxes, charges, duties or other fees levied by any Shipping Company, Government Department, Customs Authority or any other third party will be payable by the you and by accepting these terms and conditions you also give us the permission to charge your debit/credit card for any duties or fees that may be charged to us by such customs authority in respect of your goods. If we are unable to automatically charge your card we will notify you in writing and you will be required to pay us the stated sum within 7 days. Failure to make payment may result in additional recovery costs being incurred which shall ultimately be the responsibility of the customer.

          The contract is completed and responsibility for the goods transfers to you once the goods are delivered.

          8. Returns and Defective Goods

            Every product sold by HFS Specialities Ltd has been checked for both quality and safety. Sometimes, however, items are damaged during delivery (in this case please retain the outer packaging) or unacceptable in some other way and we will make every effort to rectify that situation.

            When you receive your goods, please check them immediately. Any damage must be notified to us within 5 working days of receipt of your order. Claims for damage will not be accepted beyond this time.

            Goods that are unacceptable for any reason may be returned for a refund, but you must contact us within 5 working days of receipt if you wish to return the item. We will replace any goods which are defective in workmanship or materials or, at our option, refund the purchase price of those goods. 

            The buyer is responsible for the return shipping costs of Goods returned which are not defective or faulty.

            We hope you will be happy with your purchase. However, should you feel it necessary to return an item, we aim to make the returns process as simple as possible.

            We are happy to exchange or refund purchased items provided they are returned in a saleable condition within 14 days of purchase.

            If you are unhappy with any item you must first notify us within 14 days of purchase via email to:

            contact@enamelshades.co.uk

            If the return is approved by us the item must be returned at your cost in the original packaging to the following address:

            Returns - HFS Specialities Ltd

            Unit 14 Stirchley Trading Estate

            Hazelwell Road

            Birmingham

            B30 2PF

            We will refund only the item cost and not the cost of return postage or packaging unless the goods are defective.

            Your statutory rights are not affected.

            We will not be held liable for any loss or damage resulting from the use of goods whether defective or otherwise nor for any consequential damages or any costs incurred by the Buyer in connection with the goods or for whatever reason.

            9. Cancellation

            We comply fully with the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. You have the right to cancel and return an order for a period of 14 working days beginning with the day after the day on which you receive the goods.

            10. Business to Business “Trade Customer” Returns & Cancellations

              Business customers may be offered trade prices at the Company’s discretion to selected trade customers whether on a cash sale, proforma or 30 day account basis. Business to business sales are outside of the protections of The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.

              If you are a business customer, you may return any unopened goods, in original condition, which can be sold again "as new", within 14 days after the day of receipt of the goods. Customers are responsible for the delivery costs of returning the goods. Please email contact@enamelshades.co.uk to arrange a return.

              You will be refunded for item costs excluding shipping charges once the goods have been received and confirmed "as new”.

              All business returns are subject to a 25% restocking fee. We do not offer returns on bespoke items, modified products and cut lengths of flex.

              11. Payment

                Payment is due in full before any goods are dispatched.  Our liability to you in connection with any order will not exceed the total price charged for the relevant items.

                When providing us with Payment Details (Credit Card, Debit Card, Paypal or any other service we may accept) and submitting the Order you confirm and undertake that the information contained within the Order is true and accurate and that you are authorised to use the Payment Card. You authorise us to deduct from the Payment Card account the full price of the Goods and all other payments which may become due to us under the Contract. The deduction of monies from your Payment Card does not mean that we have accepted your order nor does it mean that a contract has been formed between us. In the event that we reject you order we will credit you or your Payment Card or with the amount deducted.
                If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the Goods from your account on delivery of the Goods to you, we can cancel the Order or suspend any further deliveries to you. This does not affect any other rights we may have.
                Where Goods are returned by you we will credit your payment card with the appropriate amount.
                We will take all reasonable care to keep all information connected with your order secure but we cannot be held liable for any loss that you may suffer if a third party obtains unauthorised access to any data, including credit and account details you provide when accessing or ordering from this Web Site, unless this is solely due to our negligence.
                We reserve the right to issue any credits or refunds by the means we choose not necessarily by the means the order was placed. This method includes but is not limited to Cash, Bank Transfer, Paypal Payment, Cheque and Payment Card refund.

                30 day credit account customers agree to pay the full invoice value within 30 days of the date of the invoice. HFS Specialities Ltd reserve the right to charge interest on outstanding sums over this 30 day period on a daily basis on outstanding sums at the rate of 2% above HSBC Bank plc's base rate. If your customer account exceeds its credit limit or has outstanding payments against it then no further orders will be dispatched until the outstanding amount is settled.
