Once you’ve placed your Order, we will acknowledge your Order immediately by email and confirm our acceptance within 48 hours. This is to inform you that we’ve received your Order and one of our agents will be processing it. It doesn’t mean that we have legally accepted your Order. Acceptance of your Order, and the completion of the Contract, will take place when we dispatch the Goods to You (or some of them if we’re delivering in instalments).
You are responsible for all activities which occur under your customer username and password, save where such activities occur as a result of our negligence or fault.
The Goods displayed on the Website and information about the Goods and the prices on the Website are an invitation to place an Order only and do not constitute an offer by us to you to purchase the Goods subject to these conditions. When you place your online order you are inviting us to enter into a contract with you to supply the goods you have selected at the price indicated on the website and in your order form. When we receive your order we will send you an acknowledgement by email to the address you have supplied to confirm receipt and we will pass your order to our sales team for processing. This acknowledgment is neither an order confirmation nor an order acceptance by us.
We may list availability information for Goods sold by us on the Website, including throughout the Order process but cannot guarantee the availability of Goods listed on the Website.
Acknowledgement of your Order is not a guarantee by us of the availability of the Goods.
If you receive an acknowledgment email or confirmation email for an Order which you did not place, or if the details in the acknowledgment email or confirmation email do not match the Order which you placed, you must contact us as soon as possible: Jim’s Carpets and Furniture Warehouse, Park Lane, Thurso, Caithness, KW14 8PP or alternatively you can Contact Us or phone us on 1847 890077 to cancel the Order or correct the details.
We do our utmost to ensure that all our web prices and descriptions are accurate and up to date but on rare occasions it is possible that errors may occur. Our sales team will check the details of your order and if we find that there is a pricing or other error we will notify you as soon as possible and give you the choice to proceed with your order at the correct price/specification or to cancel your order and obtain a full refund. If we do not receive a response to this notification within seven days we will cancel the order and issue a refund of your payment.
Online payments may be made by debit or credit card. Payment using a debit or credit card is taken at the time you place your order and is processed using an independent company’s secure payment processing system. We do not see, or have access to, any of your payment card information.
Estimates as to delivery and/or installation dates are given in good faith but are only estimates and they are not guaranteed times and should not be relied upon as such. Time is not of the essence of the contract and we will not accept liability for any losses unless we fail to deliver within a reasonable time. If the expected delivery time is likely to, or does, exceed 30 days you will be able to cancel your order if you wish and receive a full refund of the monies you have paid.
Please check that the goods you receive are the ones you ordered, the correct colour and size, and that they are examined for apparent faults or damage at the time of delivery and before installation/assembly. If on inspection you have any doubts please contact us immediately. In all cases genuine complaints will be dealt with in good faith, but your rights may be adversely affected if you do not contact us as soon as possible.
We act as agents for independent self-employed floorcoverings installers and can arrange for one of these to deliver and/or fit your purchase under a separate agreement between you and them. We retain full responsibility for the products and services we supply and the deliverer/installer is responsible for the standard and quality of, and any liability arising from, delivery and/or installation.
Delivery and fitting is chargeable and where carpets are to be fitted to stairs and/or vinyl or laminate flooring is to be fitted to a hallway an additional charge is made to reflect the additional fitting work involved in these areas. These charges may be payable to the company or the contractor. The charges quoted are for the goods shown on the order only. If you require additional fitting services these can be agreed with the fitter in advance and quoted for separately.
Fitting appointments are made in good faith but the exact arrival and duration times cannot be guaranteed due to the nature and unpredictability of the work involved. We cannot accept liability for delayed arrival, but you can be assured that the fitters will complete your work even if it exceeds the expected time allocation.
Fitters undertake to carry out their work with reasonable skill and care, but even with the greatest care home décor may be marked or scuffed during the fitting process. New paintwork and wallpaper is especially vulnerable and should be allowed to fully dry. A minimum of two weeks is recommended. Neither we nor any fitter undertake to carry out any redecoration, except where damage has been caused by that person’s negligence.
Doors may need to be trimmed to allow clearance. This is not part of the fitting work unless this has been specifically agreed. Fitters may remove doors to facilitate fitting and have them ready for you or your appointed carpenter to carry out the trimming and re-hanging.
We are responsible for ensuring that the goods we supply are of satisfactory quality, conform to the sample and are fit for the purpose for which they are sold. Certain products have additional guarantees provided by us or the manufacturer. Where they are provided by the manufacturer we accept no responsibility for these additional warranties or guarantees.
If you require any help after you have made your purchase please contact us using the details on the Contact Us page.
The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (as amended 2005)
By purchasing over the internet or by telephone you are entering into a “Distance Sale”. In addition to your normal statutory rights as a consumer you also have the right to cancel the contract at any time up to seven days after the date your order is delivered to you.
This right does NOT apply to products specifically made to your specifications. This may include divan beds, bed frames and mattresses that are not held in stock by Jim’s Carpets and Furniture Warehouse and are ordered or manufactured for you; these items cannot be cancelled once the order has been accepted by Jim’s Carpets and Furniture Warehouse.
You are under a duty to take reasonable care of the goods until the end of any cooling off period. In order to satisfy this requirement you must ensure that any sealed mattress, mattress protector, pillow or bedding remains sealed until the end of any cooling off period, and all rugs must remain in the same condition as purchased.
If your order has not been delivered and you wish to cancel your order, please call us on 01847 890077 5616.
If the goods are excluded from your right to cancel (see previous paragraph) we will find out whether or not they have already been cut to your specifications and if not we will accept a cancellation of your order and refund your money. If, however, the product has been prepared for you we will only accept cancellation if we may deduct a proportion of the purchase price from the refund we issue to you to cover the losses we will incur in selling your purchase as a reduced price remnant in one of our stores.
When your goods have been delivered you have a reasonable opportunity to make sure that they are the goods you ordered. If not you should not cut into, fit, assemble or use them (other than to check whether or not they are the right goods). You should retain the packaging so that this can be reused, if possible, for their return. You will be responsible for the condition of the goods and for their reasonable care whilst they are in your possession.
After this statutory seven day ‘cooling off’ period, you have the protection of your statutory rights. If you are unsure of your rights, please do not hesitate to seek advice from Trading Standards or other advisory body.
