Terms and Conditions

Flooring Factory Outlet Website

 

As we are a clearance centre for flooring our stock is constantly changing and you should always visit our showroom to see what ranges we are currently selling.

 

Although we do our utmost to keep this website up to date, products featured may no longer be in stock and you should always telephone to check a product is available in the quantities you need if you want to purchase something you have specifically seen on this website. Flooring Factory Outlet will not take responsibility for travel costs if products featured on this website are unavailable in store due to the constant fluctuation of stock.

 

The Deal of the Week promotions will correct at the time of uploading the details to the website, but stock may sell out and we cannot guarantee availability of that product at that price in store.

  • Full payments will be taken at the point of order.
  • All Bespoke Woodflooring is produced on an order by order basis and we will ask for full payment upfront on these items.

On Delivery

 

  • Please advise us in advance if the delivery address has restricted access or other parking issues that will need to be considered, either in store or by calling us on 020 3004 6630. This includes red routes, yellow lines, narrow roads, road closures and gated developments. If the delivery driver arrives and they are not able to deliver due to these, or any other problems that we were not made aware of, a re-delivery can be scheduled. However there will be an additional cost up to the original full delivery charge.
  • Unfortunately we are unable to give a specific time for deliveries. All deliveries are usually made between 8am and 5pm.  We make every effort to adhere to an agreed delivery date but can accept no liability for circumstances beyond our control such as extreme weather etc.
  • All goods need to be checked and signed for before the delivery driver leaves the premises.
  • If you are unable to accept delivery on the specified date, any re-deliveries will could be subject to an additional charge.
  • On occasions the delivery may be made by a courier company. If you have ordered accessories such as scotia or skirting as well as flooring, these will be delivered on a separate vehicle, on the same day. This is to prevent damage or breakages to the more fragile items.
  • Unfortunately, the driver is unable to carry goods into the customer's premises and can only deliver to the pavement. The driver will unload the goods from the vehicle, but it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure sufficient help is available when the delivery arrives.
  • ALL DELIVERIES NEED TO BE CHECKED FOR DAMAGES PRIOR TO THE DRIVER LEAVING YOUR PROPERTY, PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE MAY BE REQUIRED. ALL CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES CAN ONLY BE MADE IF THE DRIVERS DELIVERY NOTE IS SIGNED AS DAMAGED. Please note that you should be able to see any damages by inspection of the outer packaging. If the packaging is damaged, it does not necessarily mean that the flooring inside is damaged as we unpack the flooring prior to adding the colour for Bespoke Woodflooring and then re-use the same packaging to re-pack the flooring in order to reduce waste.

Damaged Goods

 

  • Before installing any materials,  please check the floor is of the correct colour and type. This is important because once the flooring is fitted, the flooring has been deemed as accepted by the customer. Flooring Factory Outlet will not accept any returns and will not be liable for either replacement of product or fitting costs once the flooring materials has been fitted
  • Please refer to the fitting  and installation guides within each product packaging.

 

 

Colours and Samples

 

  • Please note that wood is a natural product and no two pieces are the same.
  • A small sample can only give you an indication of the colour of the wood and not the variation of colour and grain or grading. The colours from any samples may vary from the actual colour of the wood flooring received.
  • Please note that the colour of the oil that we purchase for finishing the Bespoke Woodflooring range is always the same but the background timber that it is applied to will always be different. Flooring Factory Outlet will not accept colour difference as a fault with the product.
  • Laminated flooring & Pro-Tek engineered vinyl products may have a slight shade difference to the sample supplied. This is due to the printing plates wear at the point of manufacture, but the difference will always be within the legal tolerance.

 

 

Grading

 

  • Unless specified, all our real wood products will always be a rustic grade. This grade has colour variation from plank to plank due to a natural mix of sapwood, filled knots and splits.
  • Distressed flooring will have the same grade as the rustic, but the knots and split could be bigger as they are filled with a resin. This floor is not suitable for underfloor heating.
  • Bespoke Woodflooring Select will have less variation in colour than other styles and will have far fewer knots and no splits.
  • We will not accept any returns based on the grading of any of the  wood flooring we supply.

 

 

Alternative Products

 

As we are an outlet with constantly changing stock levels, there is a potential that low stock may make it necessary to supply an alternative to the product purchased. In this instance we will contact you for agreement of a product change and this will not affect your statutory rights.
