PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS
TERMS OF SALE
This page tells you the terms and conditions on which we supply any of the Products listed on our websites to you. Please read these terms and conditions carefully and make sure that you understand them before ordering any Products from our website. You should understand that by ordering any of our Products, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions. Please note that if you refuse to accept these terms and conditions, you will not be able to order any Products from our site.
By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:
- you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
- you are purchasing the Products outside the course of your normal business or trade and not for resale
HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
After placing an order, you will receive an email from us to confirm that your order has been accepted (Order Confirmation) along with an estimated timescale for delivery of your order. You will receive a further email or telephone call to confirm that the Order is ready for despatch (Despatch Confirmation) and payment. The contract between us will only be formed when we receive full payment for your order. The Contract will relate only to those Products whose despatch we have confirmed by taking payment. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the despatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Despatch Confirmation or telephone call.
ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR ORDER
We do not have to accept your order and reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order once it has been placed. This may be done, for example, if:
- your payment is not authorised or has been marked as fraudulent, or potentially fraudulent, by the payment system;
- payment has been made using a card not issued in a country we despatch to, or not where the billing address is;
- there is an error on the website regarding the price or description of a product;
- the items ordered are no longer in production;
- we have tried contacting you about your order and have not heard back within a reasonable period of time;
- the items you have ordered are unavailable for any other reason - you will be notified of this as soon as possible.
By placing an order with us you are confirming that any information you have given is true and accurate and that you are authorised to use the card on which payment is to be made.
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing the Website.
DELIVERY POLICY AND COST
From July 1st 2022 delivery of our standard ironwork products to mainland UK addresses is free. We use the services of multiple large scale couriers such as DHL and UPS to carry our goods safely to your door.
If you would like to return any goods you will be liable for the cost of return delivery. We can arrange the collection and deduct this cost from your refund or you are welcome to arrange carriage yourself. Please ensure adequate packaging and insurance on the goods to prevent any damage to which you would be liable.
We will normally refund any delivery charge that you have paid when a product is found to have been damaged, faulty or incorrect due to our fault, but not otherwise.
TO CHANGE OR CANCEL YOUR ORDER
If your order has not been despatched, you can change or cancel your order by emailing us at email@example.com or by telephoning us on +44 (0) 1226 766618.
Once you have received a Despatch Confirmation (an email confirming despatch) we are unable to change your order.
Standard UK carriage covers weekday deliveries and is normally by next day carrier ... usually UPS or DHL. For small items we use 'Royal Mail'. Please note that due to the value of your order, a signature will be required.
Saturday deliveries and a 'before 9:30am' or 'before 12 noon' service can sometimes be provided at additional cost – please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Please note that delivery to some remote mainland areas will incur a surcharge to cover the additional costs charged to us. These will be advised at the time of ordering.
Parcels normally require a signature so if it helps we can deliver to a work address or to a neighbour - just let us know what is easiest for you!
It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that a suitable person will be available to take delivery once a delivery date has been agreed. It is also the buyer's responsibility to ensure that there is adequate access to the premises where the product is to be delivered. If either the buyer or someone on the buyers behalf is not available to take delivery, or if as a result of inadequate access for any reason we are unable to deliver the product, the buyer will be required to pay a further delivery charge before any further attempt to deliver the product is made. We reserve the right to retain all delivery charges once a delivery date has been accepted.
We will always do our best to ensure that your order arrives on the stated day but occasionally there may be factors beyond our control which prevent this. As a small company we are reliant on third party carrier companies and whilst we are very selective about who we entrust our work to, occasionally things do not go according to plan. Fortunately these instances are rare but we recommend that you do not employ specialist installers until delivery has been made and your order checked for damage during transit. Regrettably we cannot take responsibility for third party contractor costs.
We take great care over packing our Products in order to protect them during transit. It is your responsibility to inspect the package for visible signs of damage upon receipt and also to check that the correct number of packages has been delivered. If you have any concerns over the condition of any of the parcels delivered please ensure that you note this on the delivery receipt at the time of signing. In the event of any visible damage to the packaging it would also be helpful if you could send us a picture by email if this is possible.
We also ask that you inspect the product as soon as reasonably possible after delivery and notify us of any problems before fixing or installation. All damages due to transit must be noted within 72hours of receipt.
REFUNDS, RETURNS AND EXCHANGES
We ask that you inspect your order as soon as possible on delivery and, in the unlikely event that your products are damaged in transit, please take a photograph of the items and the packaging and notify us within 3 days of receipt. Our customer services team will then contact the company we commissioned to deliver your goods to remedy this matter, and will make sure you get a replacement product delivered as soon as possible.
We also ask that items which will be stored prior to installation be kept in suitable conditions. Our products are designed for interior use and we cannot be held responsible for items which have deteriorated due to storage in excessively humid or cold conditions.
We hope you love your ironwork but we do appreciate that it can be difficult to buy items via the internet that are unseen. We are happy to exchange or provide a refund (less carriage costs) on any product from our standard product range which you consider unsuitable, provided it is returned to us in perfect, unused condition; in its original packaging; within a reasonable time period – and up to a maximum of 30 days. You must contact us before returning items so that we can advise on the most cost-effective way for them to be returned. Unsuitable items must be returned at your own cost. Please contact us by email at email@example.com or by telephone on +44 (0)1226 766618. We may arrange collection of larger items but if you arrange for smaller items to be returned, please ensure that the package is insured to the full value of its contents as we cannot take responsibility for items that are lost or damaged in the post.
We regret that we cannot refund or exchange made to measure items including cut curtain poles, our larger chandeliers and bespoke items unless they are 'faulty or 'not as described', in line with your statutory rights. If any returned item needs remedial work to make it suitable for resale this will incur a restocking fee of 25% of the cost of the item.
If any item is damaged, faulty or incorrect you, the buyer, must notify us within 30 working days of delivery, describing the alleged defect, shortage in quantity, damage or failure to comply with a description or sample; and allowing us an opportunity to inspect the product. If you fail to comply with these provisions the product will be conclusively presumed to be in accordance with the agreement between Nigel Tyas Ironwork and the buyer and free from any defect or damage which would be apparent on a reasonable examination of the product and you will be deemed to have accepted the product. Please do give us the opportunity to discuss and resolve any concern you have - and note we cannot be take responsibility for consultations with third party contractors.
If you return a product to us because you consider it to be defective, we will examine the returned product and notify you of any refund due by telephone or via email within a reasonable period of time. We will generally cover the costs of its return and we will refund the order or relevant part of it (less the original delivery charge to you) as soon as possible and in any case within 7 days of receiving the goods back. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. If returning goods, you have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.
None of the above affects your statutory rights to reject something faulty, 'not as described or fit for purpose' within 30 days, under the Consumer Rights Act 2015; and your right to change your mind and return an online order of a standard product within 14 working days, beginning on the day after you received the product, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013.
Return items should be sent to: Nigel Tyas ironwork, 3 Bullhouse Mill, Lee Lane, Millhouse Green, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S36 9NN.
Please note, From the Anvil products may be affected by additional factors and timings depending on whether we have your items in stock, they are ordered in, made-to-measure and so on. We will advise you of exact return and refund policy details relating to your order in your confirmation email.
All of our work is handmade to order in our Bullhouse Mill workshop and as such leads times will vary across the year depending on demand on the blacksmiths. We will advise an estimated delivery date at the time of ordering but our website is regularly updated with lead times for each product. If you are working to a specific deadline, please tell us and we will do our best to fit in with your schedule.
CONFORMITY OF THE PRODUCTS
We warrant to you that any Product purchased from us will, on delivery, conform in all material respects with its description, be of satisfactory quality, and be reasonably fit for all of the purposes for which products of that kind are commonly supplied.
Every care has been taken to ensure that the descriptions and specifications of our Products on this website are correct.
All Products are individually handcrafted using traditional methods and as such size, form and finish may vary slightly.
Whilst we endeavour to show all colours as accurately as possible, please note that both print and web image colours will vary from the finished product for various reasons including bulb type used, lighting and decor. Also please note that different computer monitors do not display colours consistently.
At present all of our work is designed for interior use only.
All of our Products are supplied with fixings and fitting instructions. We supply screws and plugs suitable for general fixing but you may find that there are some situations which require more specialist fixings.
Unless stated otherwise, all dimensions are shown in millimetres.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of the Products and our delivery charges will be as quoted on our website except in cases of obvious error.
If you are ordering from the UK or European Union all prices are shown in sterling and include Value Added Tax at the rate of 20% and 0% VAT on gift vouchers.
Product prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders for which we have already sent an Order Confirmation or Despatch Confirmation.
Despite our best efforts, items on our website may occasionally be mispriced. We verify prices as part of our despatch procedures and if an item's correct price is different to that shown online, we will contact you for instructions before despatch. We cannot confirm the price until you order.
