For deliveries outside the UK please contact us directly. 5.4 The costs of delivery are included in the final Price you pay as outlined during the checkout process. 5.5 UK orders for non-bespoke Goods placed before 5 p.m. will be despatched to you within two (2) to three (3) working days. You understand that any dates quoted for delivery of the goods are approximate and we will not be liable for any delay in delivery of the goods howsoever caused. 5.6 You understand that delivery time for bespoke Goods will take longer than the timescales outlined in clause 5.5 because we need more time to source the appropriate materials and manufacturer the Goods to your specifications. Delivery of Bespoke Goods you order average 6 (six) weeks or longer from the date of your order. The estimated delivery date for bespoke Goods will be specified for each of our bespoke products and communicated to you. Near the time of delivery, we shall contact you again to agree a time window for delivery and installation that will suit us both. 5.7 The delivery timescales do not apply to certain UK geographical areas.

Your failure to notify us of non-delivery will render your right to make a subsequent claim for non-receipt of Goods as null and void. 5.9 If our nominated carrier cannot effect delivery due to your failure to accept delivery in person, we may attempt to contact you to arrange alternative delivery arrangements but can make no guarantee that this call will be made to you. Our nominated carrier will also make a second attempt to deliver your Goods but if this delivery attempt cannot be made due to your 2nd failure to accept delivery in person our carrier will make one further attempt to deliver your Goods subject to a redelivery charge.   5.10 Our failure to deliver shall not entitle either party to treat this contract as repudiated. We shall not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever due to our failure to deliver the Goods (or any of them) promptly or at all. 

6. Risk 6.1 All risk of damage to or loss of the Goods shall pass to you on delivery. 6.2 Throughout the period of cancellation, as described in Clause 8.1, you have a statutory duty under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 to retain possession of the Goods and take reasonable care of them. 6.3 If you fail to take delivery of the goods at the time when we, through our nominated carriers, have tendered delivery of the goods, all risk shall pass to you nonetheless.

Defects 8.1 You shall inspect the Goods on delivery and shall within seven (7) days notify us of any alleged defect, shortage in quantity, damage or failure to comply with the description or quote.

You also agree that our financial claim against you will be pursued in line with section 20 of this agreement entitled Default and Consequences of Default. 8.4 No Goods shall be accepted for return except in accordance with 8.1 above. 

9. Returns Policy for Bespoke Goods 9.1 We shall not accept the return of non-defective bespoke Goods for credit. 9.2 We do not allow the return of non-defective bespoke goods for credit nor do we allow the return of bespoke Goods where there is a fault which we haven't been allowed to inspect or repair. But where you have secured a chargeback or refund through the PayPal payment gateway against our wishes, you agree to return the Goods to us at your expense in the same condition in which the Goods were delivered to you. 

10. Cancellation for Consumers and Return of Non-Bespoke Goods 10.1 For all goods ordered through our Website, except bespoke goods as per Clause 10.5 below, you are entitled to cancel your order up until seven (7) working days after the delivery date. If you wish to exercise your right to cancel, you must notify us in writing either by mail to the addresses outlined in the Introduction or by e-mail to enquiries@doorsgroup.co.uk. 10.2 At the time of your cancellation, you are also required to return the non-bespoke goods at your own cost and undamaged. A full refund will be made to your credit or debit card account via your PayPal account within a maximum period of 30 days of receiving your written cancellation notice. 10.3 If you cancel your order for non-bespoke Goods within the seven (7) working day period, you agree to honour your statutory responsibility to: (a) take reasonable care of the Goods while in your possession to ensure that they are undamaged; and (b) take every precaution to ensure that your cancelled Goods are returned to us promptly and that they are not damaged in transit. 10.4 If the non-bespoke Goods are not returned or if the same Goods are returned to us in anything other than a complete and original condition, then a claim will be made against you for the full Price and recovery costs associated with the Goods you have cancelled and failed to return effectively. This claim will be pursued in accordance with the Default and Consequences of Default clauses section 20 below. 10.5  YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL YOUR ORDER AND OBTAIN A REFUND AS DESCRIBED ABOVE DOES NOT APPLY TO THE BESPOKE GOODS WE SELL. This important exemption relates to the supply of bespoke Goods made to your individual specifications in accordance with Regulation 13 of the Distance Selling Regulations.
