8.9 These Terms and Conditions including the documents or other sources referred to in these Terms and Conditions supersede all prior representations understandings and agreements between you and Carpet iT. or any subsidiary relating to the use of this website (including the ordering of products) and sets forth the entire agreement and understanding between you and Carpet iT. Ltd for your use of this website.
9.0 When you receive your flooring, please check it is the correct quality, size, pattern and colour as you expected, and free from damage and/or defects. Once you have cut and/or fitted the item, you are the owner and Carpet iT. Ltd cannot be held responsible for any exchanges or fitting costs.
9.1 Please note, we are unable to guarantee an exact colour match on different rolls. If an exact colour match is required, please contact us at the time of ordering and we will do all that we can to help. An exact colour match is especially hard to achieve when different widths have been used, or the flooring has been ordered on different dates.
9.2 All pile carpets, especially plain backgrounds are liable to shading, i.e. to show light and dark patched areas. This is due to uneven pressing of the surface by treading. Light and delicately shaded carpets are liable to become soiled with wear and it may appear that the colours have faded. Both tendencies are inherent in all pile fabrics and therefore we cannot accept any responsibility for complaints arising from either of these causes.
9.3 All dimensions are in accordance with British Standards 3655 (1974) +/- 1.25% in width and/or length.
9.4 Whilst every effort is made to deliver goods on the day specified, this service is not guaranteed. We cannot offer compensation as a consequence for late or early delivery. Any information given regarding anticipated delivery times or dates are given in good faith and are not an essence of any order contract. In the event of a re-delivery due to non-presence of the customer, or any other hinderance not directly attributable to Carpet iT. the charge of £45.00 will be levied to cover costs. It is the customer’s responsibility to check all goods prior to signing for them. Please check that the goods you receive are the ones you ordered, the correct colour and size, and that they are examined for apparent faults or damage at the time of delivery and before installation/assembly. If on inspection you have any doubts, please contact us immediately.
9.5 In all cases genuine complaints will be dealt with in good faith, but your rights may be adversely affected if you do not contact us as soon as possible. Carpet iT. cannot be held liable for any damage which is noticed after delivery has occurred. If conditions permit we wil try to effect delivery to the customers satisfaction. Although we always endeavor to deliver to the ground floor room of a customer’s choice, a 3rd party courier company may not fulfil this request. When delivering a piece of carpet over 20 Μ², we reserve the right to deliver the piece of carpet to an easily accessible location. This is due to both the potential weight and size of a piece of carpet. If a second delivery is required due to problems accessing the property on the initial attempt, we reserve the right to charge a £45.00 re-delivery fee. We are not to be held liable for any delays, costs, or damaged caused during the delivery process.
9.6 When arranging for delivery please bear in mind the shear nature of carpets render them difficult to handle. Thus we recommend during delivery of your products there should be atleast two able people available at the delivery address to assist maneuvering your carpet into the desired location inside your property to minimise the risk of injury or damage to all parties.
10.0 Fitting (Floorcovering)
10.0.1 We act as agents for independent self-employed floorcoverings installers and can arrange for one of these to deliver and/or fit your purchase under a separate agreement between you and them. We regularly assess the quality of work undertaken by our recommended floorcoverings installers. We retain full responsibility for the products and services we supply, and the deliverer/installer is responsible for the standard and quality of, and any liability arising from, delivery and/or installation.
10.0.2 Delivery and fitting is chargeable. These charges may be payable to the company or the contractor and are quoted for the goods shown on the order only. If you require additional fitting services, for example; uplift and dispose of old floorcovering, these can be agreed with the us in advance and quoted for separately on your order.
10.0.3 If you have opted for our ‘uplift and disposal’ service, we will remove your old flooring and all offcuts and packaging from your new flooring. If you have decided not to opt for this service, it is your responsibility to uplift your existing flooring prior to the fitter’s arrival. The fitter will then bag up any carpet remnants from your new flooring and leave them for you to dispose of. If you would like to keep any offcuts, please advise your fitter upon arrival at your home. The fitters will move up to five pieces of empty furniture from your room. Please ensure that these items contents are cleared prior to the fitting date to avoid any delays or inconvenience with your fitting. This does not include white or electrical goods or items over 4ft in height.
10.0.4 Doors may need to be trimmed to allow clearance. This is not part of the standard fitting charge unless agreed in advance. Fitters may remove doors to facilitate fitting and have them ready for you or your appointed carpenter to carry out the trimming and re-hanging. If you have fire doors that require trimming, this will need to be carried out by a specialist carpenter and this is not a service provided by us.
10.0.5 We are also unable to remove fire doors and so arrangements should be made prior to the fitting date.
10.0.6 There may be additional charges for longer distances, difficult parking restrictions or unusual requests. These charges may be payable to the company or the contractor.
10.0.7 Fitting appointments are made in good faith, but the exact arrival and duration times cannot be guaranteed due to the nature and unpredictability of the work involved. We cannot accept liability for delayed arrival, but you can be assured that the fitters will complete your work even if it exceeds the expected time allocation.
10.0.8 Fitters undertake to carry out their work with reasonable skill and care, but even with the greatest care home décor may be marked or scuffed during the fitting process. New paintwork and wallpaper is especially vulnerable and should be allowed to fully dry. A minimum of two weeks is recommended. Neither we nor any fitter undertake to carry out any redecoration, except where avoidable damage has been caused by that person’s negligence.
10.0.9 We, nor the carpet fitters are insured to remove appliances in kitchens or bathrooms to install any floor covering. Please ensure any appliances are removed prior to the fitter’s arrival and that the sub floor is clean and dry.
If the fitters cannot lay the floor covering due to furnishings or effects which have not been removed they will leave and return once the area is clear. This will result in a further charge for the fitting. All fitting charges are in addition to delivery charges. We reserve the right to only offer fitting services in certain locations.
