Carpet and Flooring specific terms of sale
- Due to differences in Computer Monitor colour profiles, the colours of products shown on this website can not be guaranteed.
- When you receive your flooring, please remove all packaging and visually check the product itself to ensure it is the correct quality, size, pattern and colour as you expected, and free from damage and/or defects. Once you have cut into and/or fitted the item, you are the owner and Online Flooring Store Ltd cannot be held responsible for any exchanges or fitting costs.
- 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.
- All pile carpets, especially plain grounds are liable (after they have been in use for some time) 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 colour has faded. Both tendencies are inherent in all pile fabrics and therefore we cannot accept any responsibility for complaints arising from either of these causes.
- All dimensions are in accordance with British Standards 3655 (1974) +/- 1.25% in width and/or length.
- Whilst every effort is made to deliver goods on the day specified, this service is not guaranteed. We cannot offer compensation as a consequence of late or early delivery. Any information given regarding anticipated delivery times or dates is given in good faith.
