As soon as we have received authorisation for the payment from your card provider or PayPal we will begin to process your order through our system and we will send you an email acknowledging receipt of your order. This email constitutes acceptance by us and at this point a contract is formed. It is our policy to charge your card for payment upon taking an order even if the goods are not immediately available for shipment.
Changes to an order once processed may incur an additional fee.
2. Description of goods
All images, product descriptions and specifications are for the purpose of giving an approximate description of the products. We always try to insure that this information is regularly updated. However, we advise that you seek technical advice form a qualified source prior to ordering and before any work is carried out.
We will do our utmost to ensure that colours of products represented in photos match as closely as possible to the physical product, However, some colours may vary slightly, this may be due to the way your monitor displays colour or the lighting of the image during the photography process.
3. Made to order products
Made to order products are manufactured to the customers specifications and cannot be cancelled, returned or exchanged once ordered unless the item arrives damaged. Delivery times may be slightly longer on made to order products.
4. Pricing Errors
We reserve the right to make adjustments to the price of goods at any time.
This can take into account any increase in our suppliers process or in any tax increases.
In the event that there is a pricing error on the website or in store then Bathshack will not be bound to honour any orders made at that price.
5. Delivery of Goods
The delivery of goods to you is deemed to be a separate contract for services, distinct from your contract to purchase the goods. Delivery may be affected in one or more instalments. Changes to the delivery address made by the purchaser after the goods have been handed to the delivery company will incur an additional charge of £20.00.
We aim to deliver stocked products within 2 – 5 working days. However, some items may take longer. Please be aware that the delivery dates given are always estimates and are not exact information. Goods are subject to availability and delay in delivery of goods is sometimes out of our control.
We advise against booking any installers, or engaging in preparatory work until you are in full receipt of your goods and you have made an inspection of all items. We will not be liable for any tradesperson costs, consequential loss or compensation in any way.
If you or whomever you have appointed to receive delivery are not available to receive the delivery on the assigned day and the courier has attempted to make delivery you are now liable for the additional re-delivery charge and goods will not be re-delivered until this fee has been paid.
- If your pallet or parcel is visibly damaged, please DO NOT accept delivery. - If the courier will not wait for the goods to be checked DO NOT sign for your delivery. - It is advisable that 2 persons un-wrap the pallet.
Please Use Caution when un-wrapping the pallet(s) as items may have become unsteady during transit.
You or whomever you have instructed to receive your delivery must open and check your order for damages prior to signing any paperwork from the courier – in the unlikely event that an item(s) has been damaged note this on the courier's POD (Proof of Delivery) – ‘DAMAGED’ along with product description. You agree to indemnify us in full for any losses we suffer as a result of your failure to comply.
Claims for damages will not be accepted if this has not been completed.
You or whoever you have instructed to receive your delivery is required to sign a Proof of Delivery and detail any damages at this point – the words 'unexamined'’ or 'unchecked' will not be accepted as a conditional signature. Any signature on delivery paperwork is accepting that the goods arrived without obvious external damage to the packaging and later claims for damage will not be considered.
Do not refuse the delivery unless every item is damaged. If you refuse a delivery with any undamaged items on it you will be charged for the return and the redelivery of those items. For large pallet deliveries please be aware that the costs will be considerably higher than the fee you are charged for delivery.
The delivery drivers are not insured to assist with the unpacking of deliveries. The delivery drivers are not insured to take their vehicles on roads other than public highways. If you live in a remote location and your home is not on a public road, e.g. if you live at the end of a farm track, then the driver will deliver the goods to the end of the public road only. You accept this when placing your order and if you refuse the delivery because of the driver being unable to drop at your door then you will be charged the actual
delivery costs and collection fees. (This will apply to large or very large item orders arriving on pallets like bathroom suites or shower enclosures. Smaller parcels can be usually delivered on foot by the driver.)
Delivery dates are approximate and no liability whatsoever is accepted in respect of late deliveries.
DO NOT arrange for a plumber to install the items until after they have been delivered and checked for discrepancies and to make sure they are undamaged.
In the unlikely event that an item has been damaged in transit please contact Bath Shack within 48 Hours of receiving your delivery to ensure that you are provided with the replacement as soon as possible.
Once you have taken receipt of your delivery you or whomever you have assigned must thoroughly check the contents of your order to ensure that you have received all the items you have purchased.
In the unlikely event that an item has been missed in your order please contact Bath Shack with 24 48 Hours of receiving your delivery. We will not accept liability for any shortages if they are not reported within this period.
All Claims for Missing items or Damages must be sent via email within the time allocated to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with images clearly showing the damage.
PLEASE NOTE THE CONDITIONS ABOVE MUST BE STRICTLY ADHERED TO, AS BATHSHACK WILL NOT ACCEPT LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGED OR MISSING ITEMS IF THE ABOVE CONDITIONS HAVE NOT BEEN FOLLOWED.
