Furniture Delivery notification


Delivery times will usually be between 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday. Although a fixed time of day cannot be provided you can ask the driver to contact you an hour or so before they are due to arrive. The goods, or at least the packaging, need to be checked and signed for. In the unlikely case of fault or damage please register this with the driver who will liaise with us.

If there is no-one available to accept furniture at an arranged delivery time, and the goods have to be returned to Tree Frog, then the customer will incur a 2nd delivery charge of £35-.
Tree Frog would then contact you to discuss alternative arrangements.

Access for Successful ‘standard’ delivery assumes that safe & legal access to the roadside or house is available for a large van. Access to, and through, the house must be clear and of adequate size for your order. It is essential therefore that you check the dimension and size of the goods you have ordered and make sure that each piece can be carried in safely, unobstructed, through passages, doorways, stairwells, landings etc on the way through. If there has been a failed delivery attempt for any of the above reasons, and the goods have to be returned to Tree Frog, then the customer will incur a 2nd delivery charge and re-stocking charge of £50-. Tree Frog would then contact the customer to discuss alternative arrangements.


Our ‘standard’ furniture delivery service is via or own van driver & mate. In order to be helpful we offer to place your furniture in any room but cannot be liable for any damage caused by this activity. Some large, bulky and heavy items such as tables, beds, wardrobes, sideboards, bookcases etc will require at least two people to carry and manoeuvre safely. If you foresee problems with this or any other aspect of the delivery please notify us immediately.
 

Non-standard delivery


For other than ‘Standard’ delivery we may use a trusted third party. This will be confirmed by us and details given to you.
 

Partial Deliveries


We have the right to make partial deliveries, as long as they do not cause unreasonable hardship for the customer. When partial shipments are made, additional shipping costs will apply only when prior agreement has been reached.
 

LONDON CONGESTION CHARGE:


For delivery addresses within the London Congestion Zone, any charges incurred (Mon-Fri 7am-6pm) will be payable by the Customer.
 

Lead time


Most of our furniture is made to order, especially for you, from the factory. The lead time provided is an estimate based on our own experience and we will endeavour to deliver the goods to you within this time, within the UK. However, we will not be responsible for unexpected manufacturing or transport delays or any losses, costs, damages or charges you may suffer if we delay, or fail, in supplying you. You will have paid in full for the goods prior to delivery.

At the point of delivery you will be required to sign for acceptance of the goods and thereby take full possession and sole responsibility for them.

Delivery times for our furniture ranges vary. Some ranges are held in stock in our warehouse; some are arriving on a regular basis whilst others are manufactured to order and have to come from a far off land so incur longer lead times! If there is likely to be a delay of more than 6 weeks in these times then we will contact you prior to processing your order.

Small item gifts and accessories are normally held in stock and normally delivered within 3-5 days, in some circumstances due to stock levels they can take up to 21 days.

Pricing


The price listed on the website for our product at the time of your order will apply to your purchase. We are entitled to make adjustments to the price to take account of any manufacturing, supplier or transport increases, or if the price shown on the website is wrong due to error or omission.

We accept payment with Visa, MasterCard, debit card, which is processed through Barclays merchant services we also accept cheques or cash.

 

Special offers


Special Offers apply whilst stocks last.
 

Shortage or damage


All deliveries must be checked and counted upon delivery and checked against the delivery note. Any shortages, faults or damage must be indicated on the delivery note, and/or reported immediately to Tree Frog. Any claim in respect of the above should be made by telephone or e-mail to info@tree-frog.co.uk within 48 hours of the delivery: tel 01342 300822.

Goods delivered damaged or faulty will be replaced by Tree Frog. Where goods are irreplaceable we will offer a repair, credit note, refund, or offer alternative goods to the customer. We will not be responsible for damage not reported. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

 

Returns


When you purchase from a distance on-line or by e-mail (without having seen the goods at all) you have a statutory right to a 7 day 'cooling off' period from the delivery date when you can return the goods to us. You can return the goods to us and we will process a refund (excluding the delivery cost). The item must be returned to us safely within 7 days in the same condition as it was delivered to you i.e. in the original packaging, new, unused, unmarked etc. Alternatively, if you wish to have the return items collected by us we will be happy to provide a quote. Any item showing signs of damage wear & tear or mishandling will not be accepted by us.

Please note: the cooling off return period does not apply to goods purchased via our shops or showrooms or after having viewed the goods already. No credit or refund will be given for any goods ordered in error by the customer. No credit or refund will be given for any goods damaged due to incorrect handling or storage or due to any misuse by the customer. The buyer is responsible for all shipping costs related to the return of the goods.

 

Colour and finish variation


We have used best endeavours to make our images as representative of the product as possible. Please note however that lighting can affect the perceived colours of images in photographs and that colour can be displayed differently from one computer monitor to another, and so the colours of products seen on the web site may therefore vary from the actual product. Every reasonable effort is made to ensure colour and finish consistency but our products are hand finished and fabric, leather and wood colours/stains and dyes vary among batches.

Wood products will exhibit natural variation in colour and grain. We advise that you purchase different items from a range at the same time as they will be made in one batch which will ensure a good colour match.


Some of our furniture has a rustic appearance and feel. This is manufactured using traditional hand skills and will contain blemishes & imperfections such as small surface cracks, knots, splits and holes which will not affect the structural integrity of the furniture. These will usually be sanded, filled and stained for optimum visual effect; this should be treated as a sign of the character of real wood and treasured as such.

Due to the nature of some of our reclaimed or rustic furniture we obviously can not guaruntee where the natural blemishes occur.

Information & Specifications All descriptions, drawings, pictures, colours, dimensions and specifications are for the sole purpose of giving an approximate description of the products.

 

Special customised orders


Special Orders for items to be made specifically to your own specification cannot be cancelled once production of the item has begun, which is the day we accept your order.

The 7 day return 'cooling off' period does not apply to Special customised orders. Your statutory rights are not affected. Claims No claims will be entertained unless the above conditions are strictly adhered to. The terms of use shall be governed by, and construed fully in accordance with, the laws of the United Kingdom.
