The ordering process will begin only after payment has been made. Please ensure payment has been made a minimum of three weeks in advance of your requested delivery date in order to ensure that furniture items reach you in time.
Special & bespoke items
We are able to order special or bespoke items for a Customer.
We will not order such an item from our suppliers until we have received a confirmed order and payment.
Such non-standard items may require a lead time. The estimated lead time will be notified upon order. Delivery will be scheduled for a date after all items are due to have been received.
Where such items are returned, we will offer a refund only if we deem it to be faulty or damaged and where it is covered under our warranty. We will not be able to refund any cancelled orders for such items once we have placed a confirmed purchase order with our supplier.
Stock availability and pricing
All furniture items are subject to availability. We will use our best endeavours to ensure that all items quoted are available on the expected date of delivery.
We reserve the right to cancel delivery for any quoted item without notice. We are not liable for any modification, suspension or discontinuation of any quoted item.
Where an ordered item is unavailable within the agreed delivery deadline, a substitute will be offered. If preferred, we will deliver the ordered item separately once it is in stock. We do our best to ensure that all prices are accurate on our website and in communications with the client. We will correct any errors once we become aware of them. If any such error has affected a Customer's order, we will inform the Customer.
The delivery period stated within which you will receive your order is approximate. Goods will be sent to the address given by you in your order. We will always endeavour to notify you if certain items are out of stock and offer you alternatives.
All access details are set out through the Homewings operations form and our team will use your answers to determine the appropriate planning needed for your delivery. Arrangements can be made to meet the listed delivery contact directly at the property. Alternatively, we can collect keys from a third party in the vicinity of the delivery address, meaning within the same post code or one immediately adjacent. We will return the keys to the same contact person/organization or to any other nominated contact in the vicinity. This will normally be on completion of the delivery unless otherwise requested. Where it is not practicable to do this, we may be able to make an alternative arrangement to return them at the earliest reasonable opportunity. There must be road access available to the property for commercial vehicles. Parking must be available within a distance that is reasonable in relation to manually carrying all the items that are to be delivered and removed. The property must be in suitable condition to allow delivery of the items ordered. The property must be free from any relevant health and safety hazards. Any flooring, carpeting, electrical, plumbing or other such work in the areas where items are to be delivered must be completed. Any building or refurbishment work that may affect the delivery must be completed throughout the delivery route (e.g. all paint must be dry). There must be space within the property sufficient to deliver and install the items. Customers are responsible for checking the dimensions of any items ordered to ensure that there will be adequate space for access in lifts, staircases, hallways, doorways, etc. as well as in the space where the item is to be placed. All staircases and lifts to be used for access to the property must be accessible and available throughout the scheduled delivery time. The Company will use our best endeavours to complete any delivery or removal as far as is reasonably practicable. We reserve the right to refuse to carry out any delivery that we deem to be unreasonable. In such cases, we will attempt to contact the customer to arrange an alternative delivery solution. Should any of the criteria listed above prevent Homewings from completing the delivery using reasonable means, the customer is liable to pay a charge towards the costs of the failed delivery. See under Failed Deliveries below for further details.
Packaging & waste
As part of the Homewings delivery service, packaging and waste associated with the items delivered will be removed for recycling or disposal. This does not apply to items already in the house or unwanted furniture. Pre-existing items or furniture can be disposed of by Homewings as a special request, with the cost to be determined on a case by case basis starting at £80.
Where we fail to carry out a delivery or are unable to complete any contracted work for any reason before the agreed delivery deadline, we will attempt to notify the Customer at the earliest opportunity to agree a solution. Where any such failure results from failed access or some other matter for which the Customer or anyone nominated by the Customer is responsible, a charge may be payable. Failed deliveries will be rescheduled in the normal course as set out below. If the Customer cancels the order, a refund will be made in accordance with these Terms of Sale. Where applicable, the failed delivery charge will be deducted from the refund. If it appears that an item has not been delivered, the Customer should notify us at the earliest opportunity if we have not already reported this. Where we accept that an item has not been delivered, the options available for any other failed delivery will apply. In case of a dispute, the Supplier will be entitled to reject any such claim if the Customer signed for receipt of the goods. Where the Customer was not present, the Company will be entitled to reject any claim made more than 7 days after the date of the relevant invoice.
Geographic areas covered
Homewings offer the standard pricing for deliveries inside the M25 area. Any deliveries outside of this area will be priced differently and will need to be agreed prior to any order confirmation.
We will deliver and install a furniture package within 15 working days of receipt of a signed order confirmation and the necessary payment.
The lead time may be increased if access is not available throughout this period. See above for more details on access. A longer period may also be required for multiple orders.
Where special or bespoke items are ordered, a longer lead time may be required. See above for more details. This will normally be the case for Design Services jobs.
The lead times described here apply to deliveries within our Geographic area. See above for addresses outside these areas.
It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure that all goods are insured once delivered. Homewings are responsible only for the goods up to and including the time of delivery and installation.
Additional terms & amendments
Additional terms or clarification of these may be added by other documents or correspondence provided to the Customer. The Customer will be deemed to have accepted any such new terms or clarification in the same way as the Terms of Sale. Where such new terms conflict with these Terms of Sale, the Terms of Sale shall take precedence except as described below. Any agreement that purports to change or contradict any of these Terms of Sale shall have any effect only where specifically agreed in writing in advance by a Homewings team member.
Cancellation and returns
The Customer acknowledges that it is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that the Goods will be fit for the purpose for which the Goods are intended. If within a period of 7 days from the date of delivery of the Goods any of the delivered Goods are proved to the reasonable satisfaction of the Supplier not to comply with the Order specification due to defects in materials, workmanship or composition, the Supplier at its option will:
- replace, free of charge, such Goods with Goods which conform in all material respects with the Goods Specification;
- agree a reduced Price for such Goods.
The Supplier's obligation under the condition above will not apply where:
- the Customer makes any further use of such Goods after notifying the Supplier of the defect;
- the defect arises as a result of the Supplier following any specification, plan, drawing, design, site survey, risk assessment or method statement supplied by the Customer, including where this is part of the Goods Specification;
- the Goods have been subject to misuse (including any kind of use inconsistent with the Goods Specification);
- the Goods have been altered or repaired other than with the express written consent of the Supplier;
- the Goods differ from the Order specification as a result of changes made to ensure they comply with applicable statutory or regulatory standards;
- any instructions for storage of the Goods have not been complied with in all respects.
If the Supplier complies with above conditions it shall have no further liability for breach of the warranty in condition and respect of such Goods. These Conditions shall apply to any repaired or replacement Goods supplied by the Supplier. Any Goods that have been replaced will belong to the Supplier.
Risk and Title
The Goods are at the risk of the Customer from the time of delivery.
Ownership of the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until the Supplier has received in full (in cash or cleared funds) all sums due to it in respect of:
- the Goods; and
- all other sums which are or which become due to the Supplier from the Customer on any account.
Until ownership of the Goods has passed to the Customer, the Customer shall:
- store the Goods (at no cost to the Supplier) in such a way that they remain readily identifiable as the Supplier's property;
- not destroy, deface or obscure any identifying mark on or relating to the Goods;
- maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep them insured on the Supplier's behalf for their full price against all risks to the reasonable satisfaction of the Supplier, and on request the Customer shall produce the policy of insurance to the Supplier;
- notify the Supplier immediately if any issues occur related to the integrity of the Goods
Unless otherwise specified by the Supplier, the Price of the Goods shall be exclusive of all taxes and duties including, without limitation, value added tax, which (if applicable) shall be payable by the Customer together with any additional storage and delivery costs as detailed in any quotation issued by the Supplier to the Customer.
The Supplier reserves the right to increase the Price if any extra cost is incurred by the Supplier as a result of the inaccuracy or incompleteness of any instructions issued by the Customer, or as a result of any failure or delay in supplying any information, drawings, specifications or access required to enable the Supplier to proceed with the Contract.
The Charges for the Services shall be on a time and materials basis, and unless agreed otherwise in writing:
- the Charges shall be calculated in accordance with the Supplier’s rates (including, where applicable, any overtime or out-of-hours rates);
- the Supplier shall be entitled to charge the Customer for any expenses reasonably incurred by the individuals whom the Supplier engages in connection with the Services including travelling expenses, hotel costs, subsistence and any associated expenses, and for the cost of services provided by third parties and required by the Supplier for the performance of the Services, and for the cost of any materials.
In respect of Goods, the Supplier may, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed with the Customer in writing, invoice the Customer for the Price at any time after despatch of the Goods. In respect of Services, the Supplier may invoice the Customer for the Charges at such intervals as may be agreed with the Customer in writing, or, failing such agreement, monthly in arrears or upon completion of the Services (if sooner). No payment shall be deemed to have been received until the Supplier has received the Price in full in cleared funds. All payments payable to the Supplier under the Contract shall become due immediately on its termination despite any other provision. The Customer shall make all payments due under the Contract in full without any set-off, counterclaim, discount, abatement, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding required by law). If the Customer fails to pay the Supplier any sum due pursuant to the Contract, the Customer shall be liable to pay interest to the Supplier on such sum from the due date for payment at the annual rate of 4% above the base lending rate from time to time of The Bank of England, accruing on a daily basis until payment is made, whether before or after any judgment.
