Refunds are issued in the same format that they have been paid. Cash is not held on the premises, therefore cash payments may have to be refunded by cheque or issued on a pre arranged day.

Stock Policy

The estimated date that stock will arrive into our warehouse is approximate and not a set date.

In such cases, CFC Interiors cannot be held liable and will endeavour to gain access to the stock as soon as possible. Custom order goods must be paid for in full when they arrive into CFC stores. Deposits are non refundable on custom order goods and you will be invoiced for the balance.

Goods can only be held in storage for 1 month, and must be paid for in full. Any extension to this must be clearly started on the sales order and agreed at the time of purchase. If storage is required by the customer for a longer period this can be arranged at a charge and CFC Interiors will not be responsible for damages or deterioration while in storage.

When Purchasing Flooring

  1. Inform staff of any irregularities in floor – eg uneven surfaces or if nails cannot be driven into the floor. (pipes)
  2. Inform staff what type of felt exists if you are not replacing it, especially if buying tufted carpet. Note poor quality felt or worn felt will shorten the life of carpet.

Delivery can take place anytime after 8am on the day of delivery. A courtesy call by the driver can be made 1-2 hours before the delivery – it is up to the customer to request this the day before the delivery and advise office staff of this if required.

Cancellation Policy

Consumer Contract regulations only apply to your order if the goods have not been custom made to your specification or if you have not examined the product in one of our showrooms. If the Consumer Contract Regulations do apply you can cancel your furniture by notifying us, in writing, before delivery or within 14 working days beginning with the day after the date of delivery.

Should you wish to return the goods it is your responsibility to take good care of the furniture. You are the owner of the furniture once it has been delivered to you and you are liable for any loss or damage. If you request delivery to another EU Member State you will own the furniture when it is delivered to the third party delivery providers’ premises, and you are liable for any loss or damage. Failure to take reasonable care may result in a claim against you. To minimise the risk of any such claim we ask that you return the goods in appropriate packaging such as to prevent damage in transit.

Due to their intimate nature, all mattresses will be delivered sealed in clear plastic wrapping that will allow for inspection. Any mattresses that have been unsealed will be deemed as having been used. Therefore they cannot be returned for any reason other than because they are not as described or are not of satisfactory quality.

It is your responsibility to return the items to our central delivery point in a good condition. However we recognise that many customers do not have the means to do this, and so will arrange collection during normal business hours if requested. In such circumstances a charge of up to 20% of the price of the furniture will be made to cover the cost of collecting the items. This charge will be calculated according to the number of items to be returned, availability of a delivery vehicle, your location and complexity of removal.

If you want to cancel your order please contact us on 02886763319 or email customerservice@cfcinteriors.com

Refunds

Following cancellation of your order any monies paid will be refunded by the method you used to pay us and usually within 14 days.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of your furniture

Please contact the store where you placed your order. They will request photographic evidence of faults and resolve any issues.

If they fail to resolve the problem to your satisfaction you may wish to refer it to the Furniture Ombudsman who is an independent organisation that provides Alternative Dispute Resolution services. Our Customer Services Dept will write to you with their contact details or you can email them direct at info@thefurnitureombudsman.org
