All contracts and orders are governed by these terms and conditions of sale. No other terms or conditions shall apply, even though referred to or contained in any order, acceptance or other document submitted by you unless those terms are expressly agreed to in writing by us and signed by a Director. No Contract shall come into existence until your order (however given) is accepted by the earliest of: our written acceptance; and our invoice.
All Lead times given at the time of quote are best estimates. More precise lead times can only be given once an ordered has been started and is underway. Whilst we always make our best endeavours to achieve projected times, delays by the client of payment of deposit, provision of Design Information, and supply of materials will result in the delay of jobs to a later time-scale. Unless otherwise indicated jobs will take a minimum of 4 working weeks from receipt of final information or payment of deposit from client, whichever is the later.
All materials supplied, if any, by you are held by Harps Corporation Ltd at your own risk. You should be satisfied that you have sufficient insurance to cover the value of your supplied goods.
Acceptance of Order
Your order becomes binding as soon as we have accepted it, subject to your rights of cancellation for online orders.
The standard or bespoke products you order will be made specifically to your order, in accordance with the instructions and specifications you have given us.
It is your responsibility to check all details and aspects of your order are correct – particularly when we send you your order acknowledgement; and that the goods are suitable for your requirements, including measurements, dimensions, Product features and delivery.
Unless otherwise explicitly agreed work will not proceed until a non-refundable deposit is paid to cover workshop labour, raw materials, as well as specification and design work, if required.
Standard and bespoke products are made to your order and therefore “personalised‟ as recognised by the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2014. If you need to amend or cancel your order for standard or bespoke products, you have the right to do so at any time up to 14 calendar days after you have placed your order. If you amend your order in any way more than 14 days after you placed it, we reserve the right to charge you any costs we have incurred in relation to your order in excess of the non-refundable deposit as detailed in “Acceptance of Order” above.
Standard and Bespoke products cannot be returned after you have received them unless they are confirmed by Harps Corp Ltd as defective or damaged in which case they will be repaired or replaced at our discretion.
If an order has been accepted you may not cancel it except with the agreement in writing from us. The terms of cancellation will include, but shall not be limited to a payment to indemnify the Supplier in full against all loss (including loss of profit), costs (including the cost of all labour and materials used), damages, charges and expenses incurred by us as a result of cancellation.
Colour and Grain
Please note that due to the limitations of the photographic and printing processes, goods may not appear the same colour as shown in printed matter or shown on screen. Due to the processes and naturally varying materials involved an exact colour match cannot be guaranteed when products are created, variations in colour over time also may occur which is also due to the varying nature of the materials.
Because our products are made specially to your order it is not possible to return it if not suitable. If products arrive damaged or we have made mistakes with your order we will of course repair or replace it as soon as possible. Please check your products carefully and report any problems immediately on delivery as we will not be held liable for visible defects identified after receiving a signed acceptance of delivery. We cannot be held liable for conditions of use or storage within the “customers‟ house after delivery which may affect the products in any way.
We will not pay for; fair wear and tear or damage caused by negligence and/or improper use (unless it is our suppliers’ or our own negligence or improper use); Damage that occurs as a result of repairs or alterations made without our approval; consequential loss or damage sustained by you, whether due to our negligence or in any other way attributable to the supply of the goods by us pursuant to the contract.
Every effort is made to ensure that prices on the Harps Corp Ltd website are correct at the time of publication including VAT. If an error has been made in our official price list, we may cancel the order subject to the terms indicated under “Cancellation”.
For Bespoke Product we reserve the right, by giving notice to you at any time before delivery, to increase the price of the Goods and Services to reflect any increase in the cost to us which is due to any factor beyond our control (such as, without limitation, any foreign exchange fluctuation currency regulation, alteration of duties, significant increase in the costs of labour, materials or other costs of manufacture)
