Prices are inclusive of all goods and labour except where indicated in the relevant sections.

Subject to stock availability, the Customer may place orders for any quantity of products, however large or small.

Goods shall only be dispatched following the clearance of payment.
NB: The auto-response email for online orders is not an acceptance of your order but for peace of mind only and you must not assume that a contract exists between yourself and WoodCraft-Co for the sale of goods or services until WoodCraft-Co specifically confirms it in writing (including email). It is WoodCraft-Co responsibility to confirm acceptance of your order and for despatch.
ORDERS AND SPECIFICATIONS: –
3.1 The Client shall be responsible to the Company for ensuring the accuracy of any order.
3.2 The quantity, quality and description of the Goods and/or services shall be those given in the Company’s quotation (if accepted by The Client) or the Client’s order (if accepted by the Company), or to a higher specification at the same price.
3.3 The Company reserves the right to make any changes in the specification of the Goods and/or services which are required to conform with any applicable safety or other statutory requirements or which do not materially affect the quality or performance of the Goods and/or services.
3.4 No order which has been accepted by the Company may be cancelled by The Client except with the agreement in writing of the Company and on terms that The Client shall indemnify the Company in full against all loss (including loss of profit), costs, damages, charges and expenses incurred by the Company as a result of cancellation.
Carriage Costs / Delivery: –
All products are normally dispatched within 2-5 working days unless any specific delivery instructions are received at the time that the order is placed e.g. Next Day Delivery, Delivery on a Particular Date, etc (additional charges may apply). All deliveries are subject to the reliability of the Courier Service used at the time of dispatch and WoodCraft-Co cannot accept responsibility for delays caused which are beyond the control of the Company i.e. Postal Strikes, etc. Deliveries are normally only made to the Customer’s usual Business Address as notified to WoodCraft-Co or to the Personal Address where the Customer has requested delivery (unless otherwise stated). In the unfortunate event of a delay in the delivery of any goods and where the delay is through no fault of WoodCraft-Co please allow up to 30 days from the date of the order placed, for the delivery of any goods ordered.
Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and all other U.K. Offshore Islands are chargeable at the applicable rate stated by WoodCraft-Co at the time of ordering. Please confirm the carriage cost with WoodCraft-Co Staff before purchasing any Products or Services. Deliveries outside the U.K. and in all other cases a carriage charge will be made (ask for details before purchasing).
Carriage and packing are normally charged for the collection and return of items. Sometimes special carriage options may be offered by WOODCRAFT-CO and these may be implemented, changed or removed by giving at least 30 day’s clear notice in writing to do so. FREE RETURNS within 30 days may be offered from time to time.
4.1 The Company delivery of Goods and/or services will normally be made to such place as shall have been agreed between the Company and the Client.
4.2 Unless the Client notifies the Company in writing within 30 days of the date of the Company’s invoice that the Goods have not been delivered, and then delivery shall be deemed to have taken place on the date of the Company’s invoice.
4.3 Any dates quoted for the delivery of the Goods and/or services are approximate only and the Company shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods howsoever caused.
4.4 Time for delivery shall not be of the essence of the Contract. Deliveries may take up to 30 days and the Client must allow for this.
4.5 The Goods and/or services may be delivered by the Company in advance of the quoted delivery date upon giving reasonable notice to the Client.
4.6 If the Company is unable to deliver the Goods and/or services due to variation of agreed delivery date or delivery location by the Client then without prejudice to any other right or remedy which may be available to the Company, the Company may either store the Goods until actual delivery and charge the Client for the reasonable cost (including insurance) of storage or sell the Goods at the best price readily available and (after deducting all reasonable storage and selling expenses and any interest which may be due to the Company under the Contract) account to the Client for the excess over the price under the contract or charge the Client for any shortfall below the price under the contract which shall be a debt to the Company.
4.7 Where the goods and/or services are to be delivered in instalments each delivery shall constitute a separate contract and failure to deliver any one or more of the instalments in accordance with these Conditions or any claim by the Client in respect of any one or more instalments shall not entitle the Client to treat the contract as a whole as repudiated.
Export Business: –
These conditions do not apply to export transactions for which separate conditions of sale exist (available at request). However, in the event that the Products supplied are ultimately exported, the Customer shall be responsible at their expense for obtaining any license and complying with any export regulations in force within this country and the country for which goods are destined. Customers’ outside the U.K. should first confirm the final purchase price from WoodCraft-Co before any purchase.
Inspection, Transit Delay’s and Non-Delivery: –
The Customer must inspect the Products as soon as is reasonably practicable after the delivery and shall within 30 days of the receipt of the delivery give notice to WoodCraft-Co in detail of any defect in the Products or of any other complaint, which the Customer may have in relation to the Products. If the Customer fails to give such notice, the Products shall be conclusively presumed to be in all respects in accordance with the contract and free from any defect, which would be apparent on reasonable examination, and the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the Products accordingly. WoodCraft-Co reserves the right to offer a full refund in exchange for defective goods, subject to the circumstances of the cause of the defect.
Queries regarding shortages of Products must be made within 30 days of the dispatch date and must be accompanied by its documentation. Queries regarding Products invoiced but not delivered must be made within 30 days of the invoice date and the invoice number must be quoted.

Except as set out above in no circumstances shall WoodCraft-Co be liable to compensate the Customer in damages or otherwise for non-delivery or late delivery of the Products or any of them for whatever reason or for any loss consequential or otherwise arising from defects, non-delivery or late delivery.
Passing of Risk & Property: –
Risk of loss of or damage to the Products shall pass to the Customer at the time of delivery. The property in the Products shall not pass to the Customer until all sums due or owing to WoodCraft-Co by the Customer on any account have been paid, and until payment, the following provisions of this paragraph shall apply. Except where full payment is made in cash, the whole of the price shall not be treated as paid until any cheque or other instrument of payment given by the Customer has been met on presentation or otherwise honoured in accordance with its terms. If the Customer defaults in the punctual payments of any sum owing to WoodCraft-Co, then WoodCraft-Co shall be entitled to the immediate return of all Products so Limited by WoodCraft-Co to the Customer in which the property has not passed to the Customer, and the Customer hereby irrevocably authorises WoodCraft-Co and it employees’ and agents to recover the Products and to enter any premises of the Customer for that purpose. Demand for or recovery of the Products by WoodCraft-Co shall not of itself discharge either the Customer’s liability to pay the whole of the price and take delivery of the Products or WoodCraft-Co right to sue for the whole of the price.
7.1 Risk of damage or loss of the Goods shall pass to the Client at the time of delivery or if the Client wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Goods the time when the Company has tendered delivery of the Goods.
7.2 Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of the risk of the Goods or any other provisions of these Conditions title to the Goods shall not pass to the Client until the company has received in cash or cleared funds payment in full of the price of the Goods and all other Goods agreed to be sold to the Client for which payment is then due.
7.3 Until such time as the property in the Goods passes to the Client, the Client shall hold the Goods as the Company’s fiduciary agent and shall keep the Goods separate to those of the Client and third parties and properly stored, protected and insured and identified as the company’s property.
WoodCraft-Co warrants that it will, at its option, replace Products supplied by WoodCraft-Co in which under proper use defects appear, or repair the same, or refund the purchase price thereof, subject to the valid claim being made in writing to WoodCraft-Co within 30 days after dispatch, or such other period as may be indicated by WoodCraft-Co for specific Products from time to time, provided that Products or Parts to which the claim relates are returned to WoodCraft-Co within that period suitably packaged and carriage paid and, where relevant, in accordance with any particular instructions which WoodCraft-Co may have notified to the Customer at the time of supply.
Returned Products must be accompanied by their documentation acquired at the time of the purchase and the original invoice number must be stated in respect of the Products and the nature of any claimed defect, together with such further information as WoodCraft-Co may at the time of supply have stipulated. Any Products, which are replaced by WOODCRAFT-CO, shall become the property of WoodCraft-Co and the date of the exchange shall determine the time left of the warranty, which shall be the remaining time up to 30 days from the date of the original purchase. This warranty shall be in lieu of any warranty or condition implied by law as to the quality or fitness for any particular purpose of the Products except any implied by law, which by law cannot be excluded.
8.1 Patent Defects and Incorrect Deliveries: The Client shall inspect the goods immediately on arrival thereof and shall within 5 working days of their arrival give notice to the Company of any defect in the goods or any other matter by reason whereof the Client alleges that the goods are not in accordance with the Contract.
8.2 If the Client fails to give such notice, the Goods shall be deemed to be free of patent defects and in all respects in accordance with the contract and the Client shall be bound to accept and pay for them accordingly.
8.3 If the Client gives such notice and the delivered goods are proved to be defective, the company shall at its own discretion replace or repair the goods free of charge or refund the purchase price and the Client shall have no further rights to damages or otherwise against the Company.
8.4 The company warrants for a period of 30 days, from the date of despatch, that the goods shall be free of patent defects. This period will not be extended for any product returned and replaced under these warranty provisions.
8.5 The warranty will not extend to faults caused by incorrect or inappropriate use or handling of the goods nor to any goods which have been repaired or in any way altered without the consent of the Company in writing nor to any consequential loss, damage or expense howsoever arising.
8.6 Goods must be returned in original packaging and in a re-saleable condition as a condition of the warranty.
8.7 Goods shall be returned at the Client’s expense and re-delivered to the Client at the company’s expense.

8.9 The Client’s Statutory Rights are not to be affected by any of the foregoing.
8.10 All work done specifically benefits from the company’s 30-day warranty, during which time any defect arising directly from faulty workmanship will be rectified free of charge.

8.12 Where a claim is made under warranty the company will, subject to its general terms and conditions, provide support services during its normal working hours and will make no charge for rectifying the failure or defect nor charge for replacing any faulty parts supplied by the Company, provided that the failure or defect is due directly or solely to defect in the parts supplied by the Company.
8.13 Charges will be applied for labour to rectify failures or defects, where inspection of the parts supplied by the Company is confirmed to be faultless, or where the need to carry out the work was either not apparent or not requested by the Client at the time of authorisation of the repair, or where the Client has been previously advised that a proposed remedy may not work as required.
Sometimes it may not be possible to precisely predict the exact number of hours required in any project. Therefore, it may sometimes be necessary to adjust the initial quoted number of hours previously given in any project. Sometimes immediate specialist or technical repairs may be required and these are surcharged at the higher charge rate prevailing at the time.

Returns & Handling Charge Policy – The Customer may only return Products to WoodCraft-Co, and receives a credit or refund, on the following conditions:
(i) The Customer may only return Products to WoodCraft-Co for a refund or credit with the prior consent of WoodCraft-Co.
(ii) Return must be made within 30 days of the date of delivery (as stated on the delivery documentation). Products must be returned to WoodCraft-Co in their original condition and packaging and in a condition, which will enable them to be immediately fit for re-sale. Certain Products may not be returnable once opened or where a seal is broken and these Products will be clearly labelled. The Customer must state the relevant WoodCraft-Co order number and invoice details on the WoodCraft-Co ‘Customer Return Form’, on the rear of the dispatch note or available on request, enclosing it with the Product (including proof of purchase).
(iii) Where specific instructions appear in this Catalogue or Website or with any product regarding its return to WoodCraft-Co, the Customer must follow such instructions.
(iv) If the Customer does not quote invoice details or the WoodCraft-Co order number, as on the original dispatch note, the credit will be based upon the lowest sales price, if at all.
(v) For Products returned due to Customer error or no longer required and returned in accordance with (i)-(iii) above a handling charge of 20% of the invoice value, subject to a £5.00 minimum, may be applied to cover any charges that might have been raised as a result of the order. This charge is only applicable where WoodCraft-Co raises costs in order to supply the goods ordered as most returns are FREE within the 30 day’s period.
(vi) Where the Customer return Products to WoodCraft-Co not in accordance with (i)-(iii) above (for example after 30 days from the date of dispatch and in an unfit state) WoodCraft-Co will refuse delivery or may apply a handling charge which relates to the actual cost of reprocessing or restocking (subject to a minimum 20% of the invoice value or £5.00 minimum).
(vii) Most goods are sold with a ‘Risk Free 30 day’s Money Back Guarantee’ unless otherwise clearly stated. Where FREE RETURNS are offered, if within the risk free 30 days money back guarantee period, WoodCraft-Co will cover the cost of return (by supplying a PAID FOR RETURNS LABEL). The easiest way to return a product is by logging in to ‘My Account’ online (at: https://woodcraft-co.org) to initiate the return (we will send you a postage paid label by email). FREE RETURNS are at the cost of, and risk of WoodCraft-Co, if within the risk free 30 days money back guarantee period. However, it is the Customers responsibility to attach the returns label to a correctly packaged parcel, to post the parcel at the post office and provide a receipt (or proof of postage). Please make sure the parcel is correctly packaged and you get a receipt – just in case proof is requested by Courier and/or WoodCraft-Co). Where the 30 days free returns period has expired, or the product is sold without the ‘Risk Free 30 day’s Money Back Guarantee’, then Sec. 17 – (vii) is invalidated from the Terms of Sale, but all remaining Sections of the Terms and Conditions of Sale still apply.
