Terms and Conditions - Futon Company Buy Online

These terms and conditions only apply for online sales and not for any of our stores

Futon Company has been in business for nearly 35 years and for the most part we owe our continued success to being able to provide what you, the customer, really wants. In our determination to ensure that you get an absolutely first class service, our terms and conditions are shown below.  Please read these terms and conditions carefully. By submitting an order on this website you are agreeing to a binding contract with us with these terms and conditions.

Price

The price of the goods are as quoted on the website on the date the customer’s order is placed subject only to technical error for which Futon Company shall not be liable. If our system charges you less money than actual price of what should have been charged due to technical error, we will contact you asking for authorisation to debit difference in payment.  Should our system charge you any extra due to any technical error, we shall refund you immediately. All published prices include VAT but exclude delivery.


As part of our continued efforts in fraud prevention, on very large orders where billing and delivery addresses are different, we may ask you to visit any of our stores to verify the pin on the card which you have made payment.


Delivery

The standard cost of delivery is £49 for larger items and either £6.79 or £ for smaller items.

Delivery charge for the following postal codes will be £100:  AB 10-25, AB 30-56, IV 1-3,5,8-10, PA1-19, FK, KY,,DD,PH 1-7,PH 14, PH 8-13, PH15+.  On your invoice you will see a delivery charge of £49 for these post codes.  However, you will be contacted by our sales team to advise you that a surcharge of £55 will be applicable.  Once payment is received, we will dispatch your order.

We are also unable to deliver to any of the Isles at the standard cost of £49. In which case, we shall obtain a quote for delivery and let you know the cost.

We will not be able to deliver to the following postal code areas: IV4 6-7 11-40 52-54 57+, HS 1-2, IV41-51, IV55-56, KW1-14, KW16-17, ZE2, KW15, ZE1, HS3-9, KA27-28, PA20+, BT 1-39.  We will refund immediately any orders with these post codes.

Those products that carry a £6.79 and £ delivery charge will be delivered direct to you through a carrier such as Parcel Force or APC. Delivery for these items will be within 5-10 working days. Please note that date of order is not counted as a working day. If you are not at the delivery address when the carrier tries to deliver, a note will be posted through the letter box explaining what you need to do to arrange re-delivery.

For larger items, which carry a £49+ delivery charge will be delivered on a pallet, you will be contacted within 7-10 working days by our carrier or a member of staff from one our 19 stores to arrange delivery. Please note that we will not be able to provide a delivery date until your order has been collected by our carrier.  We aim to fulfil all orders within 14 working days from the date that you place your order online.  Large items where £49 has been paid for delivery have 2 delivery time slots - 7am to 1pm and 1pm to 7pm.


 
Once your order has been despatched from our warehouse our courier company will only be able to hold onto your goods for 3 days. Please ensure someone will be available to accept delivery. Deliveries are made Monday to Friday between 9am and 6pm. If you would like a Saturday delivery there will be an extra charge of £30 (this only applies to sofa beds and goods where normal charge of £49 has been charged for delivery). Please CONTACT US to arrange a Saturday delivery. Please also note that larger items will be limited to kerbside delivery at the stated address. We are not responsible for any additional lifting or carrying of your goods into your home. We have found that there are many friendly drivers who may help you with the item to your door and sometimes beyond. This is outside of their contract and once the item is on the kerb you are liable for any damages, assembly etc. We strongly advise you to arrange for someone to help you. Please also note that if you live in a location which a large delivery van cannot access there may be an extra charge of £40 to deliver in a smaller van.

In the event that you are not at home when our courier company tries to delivery after a date and time has been agreed with you, a redelivery charge of £22.50p will apply.   A storage charge of £2.50p per day will also apply.  Please be absolutely sure that you will be available on the day of agreed delivery.


We believe that we have aligned ourselves with excellent delivery partners, yet there may be times when, despite our best efforts, your delivery may be delayed. At all times, we will endeavour to keep you informed and work with our delivery partners to ensure timely delivery of your order.


Cancellation and Returns

If you wish to cancel your online order, please do so by CONTACTING US and stating your order number within 7 days of receipt of goods.  If you cancel your order after goods have been dispatched from our warehouse where goods have reached place of delivery, a full refund will be processed bar any delivery charges to and from address of delivery.

If for any reason you find the product to be unsuitable or are not happy with it after you have accepted delivery, you have the right to return the product to us for a full refund.  All we ask is that you return the product in its original packaging in a saleable condition within 7 working days of delivery.

Our Guarantee

All Futon Company products are guaranteed for one year and suitable for residential use in a home environment. This excludes residential lettings or a contract environment.

Replacement fittings, finger jointed and laminated components:

All Futon Company wooden products are deliberately sourced from manufacturers who can demonstrate a saving of timber usage by laminating or finger-jointing off cuts of timber unsuitable for other purposes in order to make the larger pieces required in our furniture. Very occasionally parts can fail due to variations in the timber/glue interface and it is a condition of our sale to you that Futon Company immediately supplies a replacement part free of charge. The same is true for 'fittings'.

We at Futon Company specify timber off-cuts for commercial and ethical reasons. It allows you to purchase a higher quality of wooden furniture at a discount of approximately 30% and it reduces the global consumption of timber.

Your Statutory Rights are not affected by our terms and conditions.
