Onward shipping from that point is the responsibility of the customer unless prior arrangement is made and confirmed in writing by the Seller with such confirmation outlining any additional costs that this service may incurred that will be met by the Buyer.
5.6 Where possible all items will be delivered at the same time and on the same order.
5.7 An order may be cancelled at any time between the placement of the order and 14 working days following delivery of the goods(deemed the cooling off period ). All cancellations must be confirmed in writing by letter or e-mail. Unless orders are cancelled in writing, or goods are dispatched a £40 charge will apply for attemped delivery/failure or refusal of goods, which will cover the courier costs.
5.8 Some items are made specifically to order such as any personalised items or products with fabric selections. Where these items have been ordered and paid for by rooms4kids and these are subsequently cancelled by the customer for reasons other than damage then rooms4kids reserves the right to charge 50% of the value of the goods ordered if purchased then dispatched or products will not be accepted as returns if they are used as a sleep item - see 5.12. Some items are non returnable. i.e kids fabric selected products and these items can take 28 working days for delivery so please bear this in mind when ordering.
5.9 If the Buyer is dissatisfied with his purchase for any reason he may, within 7 days of delivery ( deemed the cooling off period ), inform the Seller’s customer service department in writing to arrange for collection of the goods at the Buyer’s expense or the Buyer can return the goods at a cheaper cost using another service with adequate insurance for the safe protection of goods in transit and inform the Seller by way of a tracking reference the goods are on the way back. Any money paid in the original purchase will be refunded within 14 days less the cost of returning the goods if the Seller collects, provided that the Seller receives the goods in the same condition they were in at the time of delivery to you in their original packaging perfect and un-opened. We cannot accept back goods that have been assembled, or part assembled or used, no matter when the return is requested. The cost of returning goods will be levied at £95 on the Sellers collection service. Items which are not adequately packaged at time of collection will not be collected.
If goods are deemed faulty or damaged then we will replace damaged parts within 30 days upon e-mail confirmation of the damaged part/s and a photographic image showing the damage and your confirmation of the part/s number/s as per the assembly instructions. We ask the all parts are checked exactly as per the instructions for perfection prior to assembly as any assembly untaken is acceptance of the quality and perfection of the parts. Whilst, we will replace any part/s upon notification of the exact part/s as per the instructions, we are not responsible for any delay caused by assembly through part assembly or any associated costs from an assembly installer. We would recommend that every part is thoroughly checked prior to assembly or even checked prior to you appointing any third party installer to carry out any work prior to their arrival.
Should items be returned by the customer and costs incurred without prior consent then we cannot be held responsible for covering those charges. If the Buyer chooses not to accept a damaged part notified within 48 hours of receipt of goods, the product can be returned at the Buyers expense in the normal way of our returns procedure.
Whilst, almost all deliveries are carried on a 1 man service by carriers to an acceptable weight, customers should judge what is acceptable to themselves to lift, as everyone is different in terms of age, physical strength, and experience of lifting. We recommend regardless of weight that boxes should be lifted by two customers as a minimum as the carrier can not be subject to any complaints or claims.
5.10 Upon delivery a responsible adult must be available at the address to check and acknowledge receipt in a safe and satisfactory condition.
5.11 Upon receipt of the goods all items are to be checked by the Buyer. Any damages, shortages or discrepancies must be notified in writing to our customer services department within 7 days, otherwise we can not accept free replacement parts. Even if you are not assembling the product/s, you are still required to check the individual parts within 7 days after receipt of goods, so you are satisfied goods are in perfect condition. Assembly or part assembly of goods is acceptance that all product parts have been checked prior to any assembly for perfection and fit for purpose. We accept no returns for any goods that have been part or fully assembled as they can not be resold.
5.12 it's understood you have read the delivery information on the home page relating to standard delivery or next day/day of choice. We can not guarantee a specific delivery day on standard delivery. Time slots can not be allocated on next day or day of choice delivery although where possible, carrier numbers will be communicated in advance where they may advise of a morning or afternoon slot subject to traffic. Only those orders on next day/day of choice are available for this service as shown in our delivery information on the home page.
