7.6 Location of deliveries. We will deliver to the delivery address specified for delivery. The location must be accessible by road.
7.7 Delivery will take place at the delivery address specified by you either during the online order process (if you ordered online) or when you completed the Order Form (if you ordered in store).

7.8 You are solely responsible for ensuring that we are able to make delivery to the delivery address and that you are available to accept delivery at this address on the delivery date. Please try to inform us as soon as possible if you know that you are not going to be in to accept delivery.

If you refuse to sign the delivery document, this will be taken as refusal to accept delivery.
7.11 Please check the measurements of the products you are buying to make sure there is enough space at the delivery address for delivery to take place and that once the product is built, it will fit into your room. Prior to the delivery, you must ensure that there is sufficient access and space to complete the delivery and that all staircases and lifts providing access are suitable for the delivery. You must ensure that your property and the delivery area are safe for the delivery team. All fragile items which could be damaged during the delivery, such as lights, vases, pictures etc, should be moved.
7.12 To ensure the smooth delivery of your order , you must give us as much detail as possible in advance about particular features of the delivery address which may affect the delivery e.g. Will there be time to unload / load?

Will delivery be atnon-ground floor level? Is access to the delivery location made difficult due to narrow doors or staircases?
7.13 Every effort will be made to deliver items to your room of choice, provided it is safe and practical to do so. However, if this is an upstairs room and the delivery team deems it unsafe to carry the items upstairs then an alternative room will be agreed with you. If the delivery team reasonably considers that delivery to the room of your choice is likely to cause damage to the goods or to your property, they will inform you and record the concern on the delivery document. You may accept delivery in spite of such concern but we will not be liable for any damage caused to the goods or your property as a consequence of us attempting delivery on your instructions, (provided that reasonable care is taken in delivering the goods).
7.14 The delivery team will carry out a risk assessment before moving any products and assess the health and safety risks on a case by case basis.

Of course, you always have rights where a product is faulty or mis-described (see clause 10 ,"If there is a problem with the products").
8.2 What happens if you have good reason for ending the contract. If you are ending the Contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the Contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided or have not been provided properly and you may also be entitled to further compensation.

8.4 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online, you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund.

the last delivery to change your mind about the goods.

The exact figure of the compensation will be calculated by us within 5 working days from the date on which you give us notice to end the Contract.
