4. Information we give you

 

4.1  By Law, the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that we must give you certain key information before a legally binding contract between you and us is made. We will give you this information in a clear and understandable way. Typically, we will do this in a written proposal before you buy the Goods from us. Some of this information is likely to be obvious from the context. Some of this information is also set out in the contract, such as company and contact details above, and details of our warranty contact information in Clause 11.

5.2 Our privacy Policy is available at www.heartsmokesoal.co.uk/privacy-policy/

 

 

6. Ordering Goods from us

 

Below, we have set out for your information how a legally binding contract between you and us is made:

6.1 The Proposal or any other information or quotation given to you by us before you make an order for goods is not a binding offer by us to supply such goods. 

6.2 When you decide to place an order for Goods with us, this is when you offer to buy such Goods from us. 

6.3 When you place an order with us, we will carefully check the details and will normally issue an order confirmation promptly by e-mail or post. If we have any queries or in the unlikely event of any changes being needed (for example if we need to change any details regarding products or installation dates) we will contact you as soon as possible by telephone or e-mail. Once we have confirmed that you are happy we will send you an Order Confirmation which includes these details. 

6.4 The contract is binding once the Order Confirmation is sent out and we start the detailed design and production of the Goods ready to deliver and/or install them for you. 

 

 

7. Delivery and Installation

 

 

7.1 The time(s) and date(s) for delivery, and for installation where applicable, will be arranged with you by phone within the period shown on the Proposal and Order Confirmation.

7.2  If you have any questions please contact us using the details shown above.

7.3  If anything should happen which is outside of our control, and affects the estimated date of delivery and installation we will let you know as soon as possible and rearrange this with you and confirm it by email.

7.4 Delivery of the Goods will take place when we deliver them to the address that you gave to us, and if we are installing the Goods for you the order will be regarded as completed as soon as installation has been satisfactorily finished.

7.5 If you require a mains gas, electrical or water connection these are not included unless specifically stated within the Proposal and Order Confirmation and we can arrange this for you with our Gas Safe an WRAS qualified engineer or you can to arrange for these separately with suitably qualified and certified persons.

7.6 You are responsible for the Goods when delivery has taken place. In other words, the risk in the Goods passes to you.

7.7 Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until Soal has received payment in full and cleared funds for the Goods.

7.8 If before title to the Goods passes to the Customer, the Customer’s financial position deteriorates to such an extent that, in the opinion of Soal, the Customer’s capability to make payment has been placed in jeopardy, Soal shall be entitled to recover possession of the Goods and for that purpose the Customer authorises Soal to enter any premises of the Customer, or any third party, where the Goods are stored in order to recover them.

 

 

 

8. Payment and Price

 

8.1 We accept payment by most methods including bank transfer, cheques, and Visa or MasterCard credit cards and debit cards.

8.2  Payment is required as follows, unless other terms are set out in the Proposal or agreed in writing:

•                       a) For orders of in-stock products payment is required in full at point of order and delivery will be arranged within 10 working days unless clearly stated otherwise.

•                       b) For orders placed by phone and/or email or for bespoke products other payment terms may apply.

8.3 The price of the Goods will be as shown on the Proposal and confirmed in the Order Confirmation including the following details:

•                       a) The total price which includes VAT at the applicable rate.

•                       b) All charges for delivery at the address shown.

•                       c) Charges for installation if Soal is providing this service.

(Note: unless otherwise stated prices quoted for delivery and installation assuming the address is on the UK mainland at ground level with normal access. If this is not the case extra charges will apply – please ask for a quotation before ordering.)

If you have questions or anything is not clear please contact us for clarification as we want everything to be clear to you.

8.4 In the event of failure to make any payments on the due date, Soal reserves the right to charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per annum above the current Bank of England base rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. The Customer shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount and any discount provided for on Soal’s invoice(s) shall be cancelled.

 

9. Right to Returns and cancellations

 

9.1 Customers buying through the website or by phone and email without visiting our premises have additional cancellation rights. After the order has been placed you have a period of 14 days when the order can be cancelled and a further right of cancellation for 14 days after the goods have been delivered before they are installed.

9.2 It is important to understand that because of the specialist nature and large size of the product, delivery and collection costs are expensive and customers are required to pay for these if orders are cancelled after delivery. The cost of delivery may not be refunded and the cost of collection will be calculated and charged based on the cost of sending specialist carriers to the collection address but would not exceed £250 plus VAT for mainland UK. Any product returned must be in “as new” condition and Soal may deduct charges for excessive handling or damage.

 

10. Nature of the Goods

 

10.1 The Consumer Rights Act 2015 gives you certain legal rights (also known as ‘statutory rights’) which we must comply with. We will ensure that the Goods supplied:

10.1.1 are of satisfactory quality

10.1.2 are fit for purpose

10.1.3 match the description, sample or model, (subject to reasonable variation of colour and finish with natural materials) and

10.1.4 are installed properly (if we are installing the Goods)

10.2 Any Goods sold at discount prices or such as “ex-demo” stock that has for example been previously installed in a display and or used will be clearly identified and sold as such. Please check that any such Goods are of a satisfactory quality for their intended use.

10.3 In the unlikely event of our being unable to supply certain Goods we may need to substitute them with alternative Goods of equal or better standard and value. We would always discuss this with you first and make sure you are happy.
