  2. Bentley & Hall (B&H) will not be bound to supply the goods where there is a failure on the part of the manufacturer/supplier to provide the goods.

  3. Any representation or warranty made during the pre-contractual negotiations on the behalf of B&H will be of no effect unless it is in writing on the face of this order.

  4.  

  5. All prices are strictly nett and are inclusive of vat at the prevailing rate at the date of order. The final charge payable by the Customer will take into account any subsequent increase or decrease in the tax rate applicable.

  6. If the required deposit has not been paid to B&H no order will be placed with the manufacturer until it is received.

  7. Balances must be paid in full when the goods are available for delivery. Cheques require 5 days to clear before delivery.

  8. In the event of an unsuccessful credit application by the customer B&H will not be bound to supply the goods.

Payment Methods

  1. B&H will ask for a minimum deposit of 30% on confirmation of order.

  2. The balance of the total amount to be paid will become due before delivery.

  3. Payment methods may include cheque, bankers draft, credit card, debit card or cash. We do not accept cheques as payment on the day of delivery but are pleased to receive them in advance so that the funds are cleared by the day of fitting. Failure to pay the outstanding balance will entitle B&H to charge interest on the balance at a rate of 1% per month compound interest from the due date until payment. The pursuit of consumers who fail to pay on time may lead to professional charges that may be passed on to the consumer.

  4. The re-presentation of dishonoured cheques will lead to a payment of £15 charged to the consumer

Delivery

  1. The delivery men employed by B&H take care to deliver goods you have purchased safely to your door. When the goods are taken into the customers’ home any damage to their property is at the customers’ risk. B&H cannot be held responsible for any breakages of items not moved to safety.

This right is limited to 30 days from the date you took ownership of the goods (this could be the date of purchase or the date the goods were delivered to you - whichever is later). After the initial 30 days, you can't demand a full refund in the first instance, but you may still have the right to a repair or replacement.”

  5. Manufacturers/suppliers’ delivery dates are quoted in good faith according to the information available at the date of this contract and are, therefore, subject to circumstances outside the control of B&H. B&H will not be liable for any loss or damages from the failure to meet such dates.
