When The Delivery Arrives

Delivery will be deemed as successfully made once the product has arrived at the address specified so long as the product has been signed for or a signed note by the buyer has been left to say that the goods can be left unsigned for. Where goods are required to be signed for, these must be signed for by an adult aged 18 years or more. Products will be deemed your responsibility once they have been received by you, your agent or the intended recipient or a signed note has been left indicating that delivery can be left unattended. Any loss or damage to the products shall then be at your own risk.

In case of delivery to certain locations such as hospitals, airports, hotels, ships and other business premises, the signature of any person authorised to accept delivery on behalf of the organisation shall be accepted as proof of delivery.

Please note if access for delivery is restricted please ensure that you inform us when placing your order or in all circumstances prior to dispatch. Failure to do so will result in the delivery being treated as a failed delivery if access is unavailable and may result in a re-delivery charge being applied. If the order is subsequently cancelled for a refund this will be treated as a cancellation under the Distance Selling Regulations 2000 and the original delivery charge will be taken from any refund issued. Should a delivery be refused at the delivery address, and re-requested for another date, we may, at our discretion charge for the second delivery since we met our delivery obligations with the initial delivery attempt. If you refuse an item that is being delivered for any reason when it arrives you must notify us immediately that you have refused delivery and the reason for refusal to sales@gardenfurniturecompare.com, failure to notify us may result in the original delivery charge becoming payable. If delivery is refused because it is decided you no longer require the goods and the order is subsequently cancelled and a refund given the original delivery charge will be taken from the refund before it is issued.

It is the Recipient’s responsibility to sign for the correct number of packages as shown on the carrier’s delivery consignment note. Shortages must be noted on the consignment note where possible. You should notify us of the shortages within 48 hours of delivery. (Please see Packages/Parcels Missing on delivery section for further information)

If you have received a package that is damaged and have chosen to accept the delivery, it is important that you sign the delivery note as “damaged”.

We will then arrange to collect and replace your item within the usual time scales as indicated in the terms of delivery or offer an alternative remedy. Signing of the delivery note as ‘unchecked’ or similar wording’ does not waive your right of notification to us for damage. Signing the delivery note as ‘unchecked’ or similar wording’ will be deemed to have be acceptance of the goods as undamaged. We cannot accept claims for damaged goods if the courier has obtained a clean signature or if more than 48 hours after delivery has passed. We cannot process claims for damaged packaging where the contents are undamaged. The function of the packaging is to protect the contents whilst the item is in transit.

Structural Guarantee

Structural Guarantee

All cast aluminium and rattan garden furniture is guaranteed for a period of 12 years from the date of full payment against any structural defect resulting from faulty materials or workmanship of the cast aluminium or tubular metal parts, this does not include normal wear and tear (any powder coating or paintwork is guaranteed for 1 year). All plastic, wooden or resin patio parts and furniture carry a 3 year manufacturers’ structural warranty. Please note that shaking (small cracks) in wood outdoor furniture is normal and is not a structural fault. The colour of plastic and wooden furniture is affected eventually by UV rays and is not covered by our guarantee. All other products e.g. pavilions. gazebos, parasols, bases, covers, bbqs, garden lighting, cushions are guaranteed for 1 year against any structural fault. This excludes colour change. All of our guarantees do not cover any of our garden products used in a contract environment (non-domestic), i.e. in hotels, bars, hostelries, inns, taverns, restaurants, holiday lets, rented accommodation, campsites etc..

After 28 days from purchase, it is the responsibility (this includes both cost and effort) of the customer to return and collect any goods to the address below the in the event of a guarantee claim.

Our guarantees are only applicable to private individuals who purchased goods for domestic use. Where the goods are used other than for domestic purposes, including without limitation, communal use and/or commercial use, our guarantees will not apply. Our guarantees shall not apply to persons acquiring goods second hand or at auction.

Our 10 year structural guarantee does not include cover against moving parts (mechanisms, castors, drawers, upholstery) which can deteriorate with use. These parts are guaranteed for 1 year against  failure during normal domestic use.

FREE items do not qualify for any guarantee.

e.g. If you get a FREE product(s) with any Garden Furniture Compare offer, this free product(s) will not be subject to any guarantee or warranty.

Product Use and Care Advice

All parasols, pavilions and sunshades must be correctly secured before use. Also these garden products should never be left up in windy or inclement weather conditions. These products are not covered by our guarantee if damaged because of incorrect fixing or bad weather.

Any parasol that is returned will be sent to the manufacturer for a cause of damage assessment, if the reason for the damage is in dispute.

Rattan furniture whether natural or synthetic is hand woven with fibre strands. Occasionally there may be strand ends that appear whilst rattan furniture is in use. This is not a fault and can be easily rectified by reworking the strand so that the end is tucked back within the frame or weave. If this problem persists please email your comments and a photograph to sales@gardenfurniturecompare.com and we will be able to help.

Painted cast aluminium, if scratched or chipped should be touched up in with hammerite paint to prevent oxidisation – aluminium cannot rust but a white oxide will form – if this is not repaired the oxide will spread under the powder coating which will eventually cause flaking.

International Guarantee

Our guarantee is applicable outside the UK, but is the responsibility of the international customer to return and collect any products or parts, under the client’s own cost and volition.
