Delivery and Returns
The Factory Shop Limited - Delivery and Returns Policy
1. Delivery of Products
We deliver to England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and Isles of Scilly but currently we do not deliver to the Channel Islands of BFPO addresses. However, in certain circumstances not all products selected can be delivered to your delivery address and this will be stated in your shopping basket before payment. We will deliver the products within a maximum of 30 days beginning with the day following that on which you submit your order to us (unless you and we agree otherwise or you exercise your right to cancel our contract before we arrange delivery and/or performance). As soon as we have delivered the products to you, you will be responsible for them, including any damage that may occur to them. Please note that a signature will be required on all deliveries. If the item arrives damaged please point any damage out to the delivery driver on the day of delivery before signing for your item. You must ensure all damage is noted both on the driver's and your documents and ensure the delivery driver has signed both. This will help to identify where any damage to the product occurs. The products will only be owned by you once we have received payment in full. We will deal with returned products in accordance with paragraphs 3-6 below. NB. i) If purchasing a large item of furniture, large electrical appliances or outdoor toys (“large item”) please check the dimensions of the delivery address for access (including doors, corridors, stairs and corners), as well as the proposed location, before you order, to confirm that the product is the right size for your needs, and to enable us to deliver your order successfully. If the product does not fit into your home, it will be classed as a cancelled order and the collection costs will be incurred by you. ii) Once you have taken delivery of your large item we will only give refunds in accordance with your legal rights. For example, if the products are not fit for purpose or not as described.
2. Cancellation Rights
You have the right to cancel your order for any reason within 15 calendar days of receiving your items. Where you are withdrawing from your purchase within this fifteen day cooling off period we will be happy to refund the purchase within fourteen calendar days of receiving the goods back, or 14 days after receiving notification of the proof of return, providing the items are in fully re-saleable condition. It is your responsibility as the customer to ensure the item is returned suitably packaged and is received in a fully re-saleable condition. Returning any item in a state showing evidence of use beyond that required for necessary handling may result in a reduction of the amount refunded. Postage for returning the item to us will be at your own cost. This does not affect your statutory rights.
