3. Availability and delivery
The prices on the product pages of this website are usually the RRP which includes private house delivery except in areas subject to a surcharge.
Our standard delivery is Monday to Friday. If Saturday delivery is required, this may be arranged and there may be a further charge for so doing.
Please note that all times and days for delivery are estimates given in good faith. We endeavour to deliver all products from stock in any event, within 30 days, subject to stock availability. In the event this time is extended (e.g. awaiting further supplies), we will keep the customer informed of an expected delivery date.
In the event that there are exceptional circumstances that cause us to incur extra charges, we reserve the right to apply an additional charge.
If an order is placed for delivery to an area that is subject to additional delivery charges, the order will be placed on hold and we will be in contact (by telephone or email) to provide information of the additional charges. At that point, a choice can be made as to whether to continue with the order or to cancel.
The order will be fulfilled during the expected period of despatch in the Order Acknowledgment, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
The customer will be contacted by telephone (usually a few days prior to delivery) to make a mutually convenient appointment for us to deliver.
Upon delivery, a signature will usually be requested to acknowledge receipt.
In the event that the customer (or appointed agent) cannot arrange to receive the delivery, we can arrange to deliver in their absence having made such pre-arrangement to leave the delivery in a designated area. The customer will be requested to leave a note of authority for the delivery driver to collect.
In the exceptional event there is no one present and no note available for the driver to collect, the driver may leave the product where he deems to be a safe place. In this instance, we accept no liability for any damage results from leaving products in this manner.
If, in any event, a driver cannot leave the delivery at your requested delivery address and as a result, the goods have to be returned to the warehouse, a further charge will be incurred for delivery to be made a second time. In these circumstances if an order is subsequently cancelled a charge for the aborted delivery will be incurred up to £1/kg.
All products are sold and supplied for self-assembly. In the event that a customer requests installation at a private address, the following provisions apply.
A lead time of an extra 15 working days from receipt of order will generally apply to any order for installation which may be extended by either the installer or the customer. This may affected by state of readiness of the prepared base.
Any prices quoted will only apply to UK mainland addresses coloured in yellow and green. Extra charges may be arranged for outlying areas.
The customer must ensure that they have made adequate provision for a base prior to installation. The following options are available:
Timber Floor (available from Store More)
Foundation Kit (available from Store More)
Concrete Base (allowing 7-10 days curing time)
Paving Slabs (minimum TWO INCHES)
The suitability of the prepared base/ground will be entirely at the discretion of the installer upon arrival.
In the event that the installer has to abandon installation due to lack of preparation or that the installer considers the conditions to be of such a hazardous nature that their Health & Safety might be compromised, the customer will be liable for the incurred costs. The customer will not be liable for any additional cost in the event that installation cannot take place due to adverse weather conditions. Aborted installation costs are usually the equivalent of the original installation price.
In the event that the customer is absent at the time of installation they shall appoint a third party who has authority to confirm the successful completion of the installation. They will give notice to Store More prior to installation and provide written authority either to Store More or directly to the installer.
Ensure ground location is of firm and level footing with any additional materials being pre-laid in readiness.
The area prepared should be free from any obstruction (example Manhole covers etc.)
The Area should be free from overhanging obstacles (example Tree branches, Power lines etc.)
The area should allow the building to be installed providing access to all sides.
Accessories can only be erected in conjunction with the building.
In the event that delivery takes place prior to the installer arriving, the packaging must remain intact and stored in a clean and dry location (allowing the installer an opportunity to check the contents). Missing parts will not be replaced free of charge if the package has been opened.
Acceptance of an agreed installation date will imply acceptance of the above terms and conditions. On completion of the installation the customer/agreed third party shall sign and date an ‘Installation Note’ provided by the installer (to be returned to Store More).
5. Risk and title
The Products will be at the customer’s risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the Products will only pass to the customer when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products, including delivery charges.
6. Price and payment
The Recommended Retail Price will be displayed in the open section of the website. (Subject to any periodical offers.)
The price of products quoted in the trade section is the trade price and may include minimum quantity for purchase. These prices include delivery costs (except in surcharged areas) and exclude VAT.
Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders which are already the subject of an Order Acknowledgement.
This website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the product to you. If a product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an Order Acknowledgement, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
Payment will be debited at the time of order through a nominated payment system.
7. Photographs and images
Photographs and images are used to represent the style of the product only.
Colour cannot be absolutely accurate and is illustrated as a guide only.
If any accessories are included in any image these may not be included in the standard model.
8. Missing parts or damage
The customer must ensure that on final delivery, they inspect the delivered product and advise of any missing parts or damage, in any event, within 14 days.
Any missing/damaged parts will be sent by the best method (e.g. Parcelforce) the next day (subject to availability).
9. Our returns and refunds policy
We can raise an instruction to collect only from the person or business who placed the original order.
Returns are only accepted if:
- The item is faulty; or
- The customer has a change of mind, or has inspected the delivery and decided to request collection. In this instance, the product must remain in the original packaging and no attempt to assemble has been made. (Deduction for collection will usually be requested.)
The procedure for returns will be as follows:
When the customer contacts us, the reason for the requested return will be obtained. If there is a valid reason for dissatisfaction, e.g. parts missing or damage to the item, we will initially request acceptance of replacement parts.
If a customer is having problems with building the product, every assistance will be offered at this point to facilitate completion.
If return is insisted upon, the customer must be aware of the following:
We cannot accept the return of goods if an attempt has been made to build the item. If the unit is not in its original packaging, has not been kept dry or has not been kept in a fit condition for transport, we may not collect. (These conditions are on a yellow sticker placed on the outside of every box.)
If information is given to justify collection, and the driver arrives to find that, in fact, the shed shows signs of assembly, or is unsuitable for transport, he may refuse to collect.
If after opening the packaging, the reason for return is merely ‘change of mind’, providing the above conditions are met, we will collect the item, but a charge for outward and return freight will be made plus a contribution to the re-packaging costs.
Return carriage charges will only be waived if the product is proved to be faulty.
If, having inspected the contents of a package, a customer discovers missing/damaged parts and requests replacement of the said parts, once the parts have been delivered and accepted, from that point the product will be deemed to be in perfect condition.
ALL RETURNS ARE SUBJECT TO INSPECTION AFTER RETURN TO THE WAREHOUSE.
The purpose of the inspection is to restore the product to a perfect condition, fit for re-sale.
If a return is made for faulty goods, which upon inspection by the warehouse are proved not to be faulty, the customer may incur charges for the collection and repackaging of the goods.
If upon inspection by the warehouse, it is discovered that an attempt has been made to build any returned items and it is deemed not to be faulty, the customer may incur charges for any or all of the following, collection, damages and repackaging.
If the item is in such a condition that it has to be scrapped, we will inform the customer and seek instructions on disposal. (In this case, no credit will be issued.)
We will advise of any charges after inspection. These charges will be deducted before any credit is issued.
Products can be returned within 30 days. When a product is returned, we will process the refund (less any collection charges) as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the collection.
When return of a product to us is arranged for any reason, having inspected the returned product we will notify the customer of the proposed refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time.
Returned faulty products will be refunded in full, without deduction of collection charges.
We will usually refund any money received from the customer using the same method originally used by the customer to pay for the purchase.
