Signing for items at time of delivery
It is extremely important to check all items for damage before signing and accepting them. We will not be able to accept any claims for damaged items if you have signed the delivery paperwork and accepted goods.
Please take the following steps:
1. If our delivery team have not already done so, please take the item out of its packaging (do not just look at the packaging)
2.Inspect goods carefully (all the sides, corners and doors if applicable)
3. If there is no damage , accept and sign
4. If there is damage do not accept or sign (you can instead write Delivery refused as item damaged)
Once goods are signed for we cannot be held responsible for any damages and the customer is required to prove to us the damage was there before delivery.
Please make sure that anyone who might accept a delivery for you understands this, please also make sure the person who is signing for goods on your behalf is over 18 and if its your 'acceptor' you are obliged to make sure they know they have to inspect the goods properly before signing.
Unsuccessful Deliveries: Customers are responsible for being present for their delivery as freight companies contact customers prior to their delivery day and may advise whether it is an AM/PM delivery. If a delivery fails because there is nobody available to receive it on the day it has been booked or delivery fails for a reason out of our control, then a re-delivery charge of £100 + VAT will be levied for the failure. The delivery will NOT be re-booked until this charge is paid.
We reserve the right to deliver to the door step or kerbside should the doorstep not be accessible. We request any access issues to be sent to us prior to delivery so we can make the necessary arrangements - should we not be informed of any stairs etc, we reserve the right to deliver to the kerbside or charge the unsuccessful delivery charge as noted above.
Freestanding wine coolers are designed to stand alone and not be built in to any cabinetry at all, we recommend a minimum ventilation space of 3-5 inches around the sides and rear of the unit. Do not install a freestanding unit under a counter top.
Thermoelectric wine coolers should never be built into cabinetry or have the ventilation limited in any way. They are designed to sit on the floor or smaller units are perfect for installation on a counter top.
