Terms & Conditions
Please ensure that all purchase orders include the correct product description, code and finish required.
Cancellations and Amendments to Orders:
All your furniture is made to order, any cancellation or amendment to ordered items will only be accepted only if previously agreed with Early Years Educational in writing. Any item which includes upholstery is NON RETURNABLE. If you have placed an order more than 48 hours ago and wish to cancel, an administration charge may be payable. If your goods have been shipped or manufactured and we have incurred delivery/manufacturing expenses we have no option but to charge delivery, return costs and re-stocking fee. The amount charged will depend upon the type and size of goods. Goods must be returned at your own expense.
All prices quoted are based on delivery to the nearest undercover point, some products may include installation. Delivery dates quoted are approximate only and Early Years Educational shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of goods which is beyond reasonable control. Deliveries are direct to your requested delivery destination via our allocated third party transport. All goods must be checked and signed for at the time of delivery. Failure to report shortages/damages at the time of delivery could jeopardise our ability to obtain replacements or repair. Once a delivery has been signed for no claim for shortages will be accepted, however any damaged products must be reported in writing within 2 working days. You should always satisfy yourself that deliveries are correct before signing for goods. The company accepts no responsibility for third party shipment/collection. This being that goods shipped direct to our customers for onward shipment to a third party, will cease to be the responsibility of the Company for the purpose of the Damaged or Non-Damaged goods returns policy. These items will then become the subject of responsibility between the customer and their couriers. All goods received damaged should be refused and not signed for. Signing for the goods is seen as indication to the courier companies that the goods have been received in an undamaged state. Deliveries should ALWAYS be checked BEFORE goods are signed for. No claims will be accepted in the event of damaged goods being received and signed for. The words “unexamined”, “unchecked” or similar will not be accepted as a conditional signature.
