Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions

We require full payment before we commence dispatch, commence work or order goods. Any quotations are valid for 30 days from the date of the document and any sales orders received after the 30 day period will be subject to the prices current on the date the order is placed. You will be advised of any price difference when the order is received. No quotation or estimate given by us to you will be binding until such time as we accept an order for the goods. 

A Stock Item is an item that is held in stock and does not have to be ordered in, made to order and/or finished to order. A Stock Item can be dispatched within 2 days if required.  

The majority of our products are Non Stock Items because they are made and/or finished to order. As they are not items that are in stock, we have to commission them for each individual order. Lead times for these items will vary from 4-6 weeks depending on the product and quantity. The member of staff processing the order will advise when the order is received. 

A Bespoke Item is a design that is not in our usual product portfolio or is a modification to an existing product. A Bespoke Item is made exclusively to a customer's specification and therefore is non-returnable and non-refundable.  Lead times for these items will be quoted on an order by order basis.

On placement of an order we will send you an Order Acknowledgement indicating that your order has been received. This will list the quantity and description of the items ordered and the payment total. Please let us know immediately if you need to change anything. Please note that in some cases lead times are between 4-6 weeks.  You will later be advised by email of an estimated delivery date with your Order Confirmation. A dispatch tracking number can be provided upon request. All orders are expressly subject to our Terms and Conditions. 

Goods remain the property of Hector Finch Lighting Ltd until paid for in full. 

All orders are subject to availability. 

Particular electrical requirements must be specified at the time an order is placed. There may be an additional charge for this service. 

We reserve the right to refuse delivery to any individual or company. 

We reserve the right to discontinue products and to change our prices. Please note that any changes to orders that require additional materials may incur an additional fee. 

We reserve the right to change our Terms & Conditions from time to time and your continued use of the website or any part of it following such a change shall be deemed as acceptance of the new Terms. It is your responsibility to check regularly for any changes to these Terms. 

VAT is payable on orders in the UK. Customers in the EEC must pay VAT unless a valid VAT number is provided. 

Whilst every effort is made to check wiring on our goods, we cannot be held responsible for faults that occur after installation.

ONLINE DELIVERY POLICY 

DELIVERIES: 

• Deliveries will generally be made between 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays). As the majority of our lights are made to order, we aim to deliver within 4-6 weeks from receipt of your payment.

• In the event of multiple items being ordered, we will not split your delivery unless previously discussed with you.

• We cannot guarantee delivery dates and times as these may be affected by circumstances out of our control. We will do our best to contact you if we are forewarned of delays. 

• Delivery will be made to the address specified when the order is placed.  We ship globally and can always provide shipping quotes for any destination.

• We are unable to accept responsibility for lost working time and recommend goods are ordered well in advance of any project start dates. 

• If we are unable to gain access to the agreed delivery address we will return the goods to our warehouse and make contact with you to organise re-delivery. Unfortunately in these circumstances we may have to charge you an additional delivery fee. 

• All goods must be signed for to confirm receipt. If you are unavailable at this time we recommend a responsible adult is available to sign on your behalf. 

MAINLAND ONLINE DELIVERY CHARGES 

Standard Delivery Charge: £7.95 (excluding VAT) per item for online orders 

Larger items: £40.00 (excluding VAT) per item - this will be made clear upon checkout. 

The delivery charges for all other products are based on the weight, size and quantities of the order placed. If your order exceeds the £50 limit for shipping you will be advised with a shipping quote at the next working day.

There is an additional charge for deliveries to GBR Islands. 


Delivery Details: 

• Heavy goods deliveries may require assistance to offload. Offers to assist the delivery are made at your own risk and should only be attempted if you are comfortable lifting the load. In the event you are unable to assist and the delivery is too heavy for the driver to safely deliver on their own., we will discuss this with you and will either re-arrange delivery for a later date where more assistance is available, or the delivery will be made to the nearest point of access that can be achieved by the driver. 

• Delivery crews are not able to attempt delivery where damage to your home may result. Our delivery teams are unable to remove doors and windows. 

• Hector Finch Lighting Ltd accepts no legal responsibility for any Personal Injury sustained assisting with deliveries; this is entirely at the Customer’s own risk. 
 
We carry the risk of loss or damage to the products until you sign for them upon receipt. We therefore recommend that you inspect the product thoroughly at this time to ensure you are happy that the goods have not been damaged in transit and that all items are present. Any problems must be reported to us within 7 working days of receipt of the order. In the event of a problem please contact 01584 871600. If products are considered by you to be faulty or defective after the 10 day period has expired then please contact us for consideration of your query.

OUR RETURNS POLICY 

Should you wish to return an item for any reason you must notify Hector Finch Lighting Ltd in writing within 7 days of receipt of the goods.
