1. Terms & Conditions
These Terms and Conditions of Trading apply to all consumer contracts between Chesterfields Direct UK Limited and our subcontractors ('us/we/our') and the Customer ('you/your') in relation to all sales of goods and services. Additional terms and conditions apply to sales made through our Internet/Web Site, as set out below.
We have a policy of continuous product development and reserve the right to amend the specification of products without prior notice in relation to future sales.
Goods supplied may differ as a consequence from those on display or advertised. Unless agreed with you, the goods supplied will be of equivalent value, functionality and appearance.
The furniture supplied by us is hand made using natural materials. As such the leather goods will have natural marks such as healed scars and barbed wire nicks, which signify genuine leather. Leather goods are made from natural leather and accordingly they may not be uniform in colour or texture. Only the finest hides are selected but they will show natural marks and scars on the hide which is normal and common place and part of the authenticity of real leather.
Our furniture will not have the even and consistent finish and appearance found in machine goods made with artificial materials. There will be minor variations in colour and appearance between goods provided and goods displayed in our showroom, leather samples and images on our website.
You acknowledge that such characteristics and variations are not go be regarded as defects for the purpose of assessing whether or not the goods are of satisfactory quality. Some leathers will mellow with age and exposure to sunlight and heat.
We will endeavour to match the colour and texture of the fabric of your sofa to the samples chosen as accurately as possible, but variations in both the colour and texture may occur from batch to batch.
The measurements of all furniture and furnishings made by us will be as accurate as possible, but are nevertheless approximate.
We require payment in full before despatch of goods and all goods remain the property of Chesterfields Direct UK LTD until paid for in full.
We will contact you to advise you of your delivery date and at this time the balance of any monies due will be payable. Only once we have received the balance of any monies due in cleared funds will we be able to deliver.
If you are unable, for whatever reason, to take delivery of your goods on the confirmed delivery date we will strive to find a suitable date as soon as possible.
If we accidentally damage goods in the course of delivery, then our liability for that damage is limited to the repair, refund or replacement of the goods or the value thereof.
Time of delivery is not of the essence in these Terms and Conditions of Trading. We will not be liable for any direct or indirect loss of profits or other financial loss or damage suffered by you through any reasonable delay or delay due to unforeseen circumstances outside of the reasonable control of Chesterfields Direct UK Limited or delay due to any reasonable rescheduling of delivery.
IMPORTANT: Please note that if a delivery time is booked in and there is nobody to meet the driver, we will make a charge for redelivery. Our overseas couriers reserve the right to sometimes deliver your order to the kerbside only, so please make sure you have any help you need to carry the furniture into your house.
Returns and Refunds
All our furniture is made especially for you: it is not held in stock. Products that are made especially for you may not be cancelled by you, either before or after delivery. All our furniture with the exception of our sale or clearance items are made to your exact specifications and therefore cannot be cancelled once we have accepted your order. These orders fall outside the Distance selling Regulations (2000) which states that personalised goods or goods made to a consumer's specification are exempt.
All sale items are non returnable/refundable and you will be charged the delivery and collection costs for any non faulty return along with an admin charge at the managements discretion.
The provisions of this clause apply in addition to your statutory consumer rights in relation to faulty or misdescribed goods. These rights are not affected by the guarantee. For the purpose of this clause the guarantor is, Chesterfields Direct UK Limited, Chesterfield House, Lloyd Street, Whitworth, Rochdale, OL12 8AA, United Kingdom.

These guarantees do not cover fair wear and tear, neglect, abuse or misuse of your goods, loss or damage (including rusting and corrosion) due to unreasonable exposure to water or weather; loss or damage due to fire, smoke, explosion, lightning, sunlight, infestation by animals or boring insects, or theft, or accidental damage or loss caused by a third party.
Claims Under Guarantee
In the event of a claim under guarantee occurring, please contact Chesterfields Direct UK Limited.
We will endeavour to repair the defective goods free of charge. If a repair is not possible you will be offered a replacement and only if a suitable replacement is not available will you be offered a refund.
We will not be liable for any direct or indirect loss of profits or other financial loss or damage arising out of defective, damaged or wrongly delivered goods, over and above the value of the goods themselves. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Our guarantees are limited to goods sold and retained in the United Kingdom, and used solely for private and domestic purposes.
