Where to find information about us and our products
You can find everything you need to know about us, PG Carpentry Ltd, and our products on our website pgcarpentry.com, in our brochure or from our sales staff before you order. We also confirm the key information to you in writing after you order, either by email, in your online account or on paper.
When you buy from us you are agreeing that:
This is our entire agreement with you
This contract constitutes the entire agreement between us in relation to your purchase. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by us or on our behalf which is not set out in these terms and that you have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in this agreement.
Any quotations for the supply of goods or services, or for any changes requested by you, shall in each case be valid for a period of 7 days from the date of issue.
We only accept orders when we've checked them
We contact you to confirm we've received your order and then we contact you again (normally within 7 days) to confirm we've accepted it.
Sometimes we reject orders
Sometimes we reject orders, for example, because a product is unexpectedly out of stock, because a credit reference we have obtained is unsatisfactory, because you are located outside our delivery areas, as stated on our website and in our marketing or because the product was mispriced by us. When this happens, we let you know as soon as possible and refund any sums you have paid.
We charge you 50% of the order value when we accept your order and you must pay the balance in instalments, as set out in the Payment Terms Schedule
However, for some Goods or Services we take payment at regular intervals, as explained to you during the order process. If your product is Goods (rather than Services), you will own it once we have received payment in full.
You have no set-off rights
You must pay all amounts due to us under these terms in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).
We charge interest on late payments
If we're unable to collect any payment you owe us we charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the Bank of England base rate from time to time. This interest accrues on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You pay us the interest together with any overdue amount.
We pass on increases in VAT
If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
We're not responsible for delays outside our control
We will endeavour to supply the Goods and Services within a reasonable time but any dates given are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed. Time shall not be of the essence.
If our supply of your product or services is delayed by an event outside our control, (such as bad weather which affects our ability to work on site, late deliveries from our suppliers, delays in approvals required from third parties, your delay in providing us with necessary information or access, acts of God, flood, drought, earthquake or other natural disaster; epidemic or pandemic; terrorist attack, civil war, civil commotion or riots, any law or any action taken by a government or public authority, collapse of buildings, fire, explosion or accident; and any labour or trade dispute, strikes, industrial action or lockouts), we contact you as soon as possible to let you know and do what we can to reduce the delay. As long as we do this, we won't compensate you for the delay.
Products can vary slightly from their pictures
A product's true appearance may not exactly match that shown on your device or in our marketing. Because our products are made to order, all descriptions and illustrations indicated on our website, or our brochures are produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the goods described in them. They do not form part of our contract with you.
You're responsible for making sure the design drawings are accurate
If we're making or supplying the product to your specification we will provide you with the design drawings. You’re responsible for approving the design drawings including checking that any measurements are correct. You must provide us with all necessary information relating to the Goods or Services that we reasonably require to fulfil your order.
You're responsible for making sure you have any necessary permissions
We may assist you with preparation of preliminary drawings and/or specifications where these may be required for the purpose of obtaining any permissions or consents from your Local Planning Authority (LPA). We are not planning experts and it is your responsibility to ensure that you have taken appropriate advice and obtained all necessary consents before delivery or installation of the Goods you have ordered. We will not be responsible for any decisions made by an LPA, nor any delays caused by any planning decisions or failure by the LPA to determine an application at any time.
You're responsible for making sure your ground conditions are suitable
Unless we have agreed to undertake the groundwork as part of the Services, you will be responsible for ensuring that your ground conditions are suitable for the installation of the Goods you have ordered. If you are unsure, you should obtain a ground report from an expert.
During the works, the site will be a construction site and during this time, you must refrain from accessing the construction site during works or outside of site hours and you must not tamper with, use or alter anything related to the works including the security fencing as this is in place to ensure the safety of both the workers, yourself and any authorised visitors.
Any site visits (including any third parties) must be through prior arrangement with and in the presence of our site manager until the site has been handed over at the end of the project.
We charge you if you don't give us information we need or do preparatory work as agreed with us
We charge you additional sums if you don't give us information we've asked for about how we can access your property for delivery, installation or to provide services or if you don't do preparatory work for installation, as agreed with us. For example, we might need to re-deliver on another vehicle or with extra manpower, reschedule services or delay provision of the Goods and Services to take account of our other existing commitments..
We may charge you additional sums to reflect any increased costs to us (including any additional labour costs if our team arrive on site and are not able to carry out their work as anticipated) as a result of:

If you ask us to “start work now” you still have a right to cancel the contract within the cancellation period, but we will charge you for any work which we do, or services we provide, before we receive your cancellation notice. If you ask us to begin carrying out the work, or provide any services, during the cancellation period, you must pay us a fair amount for the work carried out, or services provided, until you told us that you are cancelling this contract.
How to let us know. To let us know you want to change your mind, contact us at email@example.com
You have to pay for services you received before you change your mind. If we are providing Services (such as design drawings) we don't refund you for the time you were receiving it before you told us you'd changed your mind. Please note that if you ask us to “start work now” our designer and engineer will begin working on the design services immediately and you will have to pay for this service if you change your mind and cancel within the 14 day period.
When and how we refund you. If your product is a service or goods that haven't been delivered, we refund you as soon as possible and within 14 days of you telling us you've changed your mind. We refund you by the method you used for payment. We don't charge a fee for the refund.

You can only transfer your contract with us to someone else if we agree to this. We may not agree if the Goods have not been delivered and paid for in full. However, where applicable you can transfer our warranty to a new owner of the Goods. We can require the new owner to prove you transferred the Goods to them, for example by producing a letter or chain of letters from the original purchaser and subsequent purchasers (where appropriate) transferring the benefit of the warranty to the new owner of the Goods in question.. If you're a business you need our agreement to transfer your contract with us and it's entirely up to us whether we give it.

Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. We might not immediately chase you for not doing something (like paying) or for doing something you're not allowed to, but that doesn’t mean we can't do it later.
