4.ORDERING AND DELIVERY

General
We try our utmost to ensure you receive an excellent delivery service. If something goes wrong we will try to rectify it. We do not offer compensation in the event of errors such missed, delayed or incorrect deliveries.

Delivery may be made by courier, pallet service or specialist delivery company depending on the type of goods, your location and the delivery service you have chosen. All deliveries require a signature to accept receipt.

If you specify a third party mailbox address we will not accept responsibility for any loss or damage after delivery is received (the point at which the courier delivers the parcel/s) as the parcel will be in the hands of another party. We will provide a standard record of delivery only.

Charges
Delivery charges will be shown at the time of order and we try to provide accurate pricing for this. We however reserve the right to change delivery charges subsequent to your online order if we discover a mistake in our pricing, we do not deliver to your area, or other information comes to light that would affect our delivery costs. You will of course be informed in such circumstance.

At checkout you need to select a delivery option appropriate to your location and the goods you are purchasing. If you select an incorrect option we will contact you and request payment of any additional charges, such as if you select parcel delivery for a furniture item that cannot be sent as a parcel.

Lead Times
Lead times are estimates and we do not offer compensation for delays. The expected delivery time is usually shown on our website in days or weeks. This is provided as a guide only and may vary due to many factors. When goods are out of stock or temporarily unavailable we will advise you of the progress of your order and an expected delivery date as soon as possible.

Storage
Once your order arrives into stock we will store it for up to 10 days free of charge, to allow us to deliver on the most convenient delivery day for you. If we have offered delivery to you but you are not ready to receive the order we reserve the right to charge for storage from 10 days after we advise your order is ready at the rate of £20 per day, this includes each large item (such as one sofa, dining table, lounge chair etc) or a number of smaller items (set of chairs, stools, lights etc) up to about 1.5m3. Charges will apply unless agreed in advance.

Despatch
You will be informed of dispatch by email or telephone. You must inform us of non-delivery within 7 days of this confirmation so that we can make investigations and ensure goods get to you as soon as possible. We will not be held responsible for goods undelivered after 14 days if you have not informed us of their non-delivery.

Access
You will need to be aware of the dimensions of goods to be delivered to you and check that there is sufficient access through your building including corridors, doorways, or stairs. For deliveries which fail due to lack of access for the size or weight of goods to be delivered we may charge for return of the order to us. If subsequent redelivery is required this will also be chargeable. We can provide delivery services for difficult access and will be pleased to provide quotations for this service.

Delivery inside your building
Unless specifically stated all deliveries are to the ground floor entrance to your building. If we are able to assist delivery inside your building at your request HAUS will not be liable for any damage to property or injury to persons on your premises however caused. We cannot move or dispose of existing furniture.

Delivery Method
We will deliver to you using the most suitable and economical method available to us at our discretion. This may include services such as standard courier (typically for smaller items), same day courier services, delivery on our own vehicle, delivery on a pallet (all pallet deliveries are kerbside), freight delivery, and specialist (sometimes called 'white glove' or 'room of choice') delivery, which is usually chargeable.

Delivery Attempts
We use a number of different delivery methods to get your order to you. You will be advised when we despatch your order and the courier services we use usually offer tracking and notifications. If you are unavailable, miss delivery, do not collect your order from a pick up point you nominated or have provided incorrect delivery information the parcel may be returned to us. We may charge you for return costs incurred and redelivery costs. If you decide to cancel your order after a delivery failed because you were not available we will deduct the delivery charges incurred from any refund due.

For some larger items a specific delivery date may be set with you in which case delivery will only be attempted once. If such a delivery is cancelled at less than 24 hours notice we may charge for the cancelled delivery or redelivery (even if this was originally offered free or at a discounted rate). If delivery fails because nobody is available to accept it, or you have supplied an incorrect delivery address, you will be charged for the full cost for return of goods to us and for any subsequent redelivery, even if delivery was originally offered free, or at a discounted rate. If waiting time is incurred because you are not available to receive delivery at the agreed time we reserve the right to charge you an appropriate fee equivalent to costs incurred.

Taxes and Duties
All our prices include VAT in the UK. Countries outside the European Union may levy import duty. Goods are shipped by us “Duty Unpaid”. It is the customers responsibility to pay any import duty that is due. Charges will vary and are assessed locally. Failure to pay duty will result in delivery failure and goods may be returned to us in the UK. We will treat this as 'cancellation of order'. Substantial charges may be incurred.

Product Specification
We provide a description of each product and specifications which may include dimensions, materials, and other technical information. This is provided to the best of our knowledge. We will not be responsible for errors or omissions or minor variances in colours, finishes and specification.

All electrical products are supplied to meet requirements and regulations for use in the UK. If you purchase for delivery to an overseas address you will receive the model designed for use in the UK.

5.DAMAGED, MISSING, FAULTY OR INCORRECT GOODS

Please carefully inspect your packages when they arrive. If packaging is open or damaged please mark the delivery note as 'damaged' in the signature box (including hand held electronic capture devices). You may also choose to refuse the delivery and mark as 'damaged' (the goods will be returned to us). We do not accept delivery damage claims if delivery is to a mailbox service address.

Once opened, if you find your order is damaged, missing any parts, faulty or is any way incorrect please contact us immediately with the details either by email at help@hauslondon.com or by telephone 020 8533 8024. You must tell us within 48 hours of receipt.

If there is a problem with the delivered item please keep all packaging and instructions and do not use. If your order was delivered to a UK address we will arrange collection from that address (or pay your return postage costs), and for replacement as soon as possible. Collection will be limited to the method we select. You will be responsible for repacking and sealing ready for collection and you may need to attach a shipping label which we will supply. Collection will be from the ground floor entrance of your building. We cannot usually provide a specific time slot for collections other than the day.

You may also return goods in person at our shop. Please bring your receipt or order number. Ensure that you receive a written confirmation that goods have been returned to us.

Orders delivered to overseas addresses must be returned to us at your own expense.

Goods will be checked upon return. They must be complete and include all packaging and instructions. If goods returned as faulty are found not to be so, we consider the return as point '6' below 'Cancellation and Unwanted items'. We will let you know so you may decide how to proceed.

Furniture and larger items delivered by our furniture delivery service must be checked by you or your representative at the point of delivery. Report any problem to the delivery team before they leave.

We do not offer compensation in the event of a product being faulty, incorrect or damaged but will get any problem rectified as quickly as possible. We always try to ensure that your order arrives correct and in perfect condition.

6.CANCELLATION AND UNWANTED ITEMS

We want you to be happy with your purchase. For online orders your right to cancel an order for goods starts the moment you place your order and ends 14 days from the day you receive your goods. You should inform us either by email at help@hauslondon.com or by telephone 020 8533 8024.

This policy excludes special order or bespoke items which have been ordered to your specification from available options, or that we do not normally hold in stock, or that have been made to order by the manufacturer. 

Special orders include all upholstery, most furniture and many other items listed on this website, indicated by a lead time shown in the product description of more than 2 weeks. These items are not returnable. If you are unsure as to whether an item is special order please contact us before making your purchase.

For hygiene reasons we do not accept return of bed covers / linen unless it is in its original sealed and unopened packaging. Please check such items are suitable before opening.

Trade sales and business to business sales are excluded from the above policy and returns are at our discretion.

Your statutory rights are not affected under 2014 the Consumer Contracts Regulations.

When you place an order in person at our shop for goods with a lead time and make full or partial payment you have entered a contract with us to supply. You cannot usually cancel such orders.

7.RETURNS

The cost of returning unwanted goods is your responsibility. You have 14 days from the date you receive your order to advise us if you wish to return anything, you then have a further 14 days to actually send the goods back from the date you have informed us. We advise that goods should be returned by trackable delivery method and insured for their full retail value. You are responsible for them until we have received and checked them. If returning in person please ask for a confirmation of return.

Goods should be returned to the following address. Please enclose a note of your order number with your returned goods (this is shown on your order confirmation email and delivery note).

Please ensure returned goods are suitably packed for transport. Do not write on the product packaging.

For any goods which are large, awkward, valuable or fragile it may be advisable to use a specialist transporter to collect the items you are returning. You can request that we collect the goods on your behalf, in which case we will inform you of the cost prior to collection.

8.CONDITION

All goods must be returned in new, unused and original undamaged condition, complete with all original and undamaged packaging and instructions. New and unused means that there are no marks on the item or signs of any wear. Electrical items must not have been fitted or connected to a power supply.

We reserve the right to make a deduction from any refund or not to accept an item with any indication it has been used or if it is damaged. You will have the option to request goods be returned back to you, in which case we will charge for redelivery.

9.REFUND

We will refund the basic delivery cost (if applicable), but not added delivery costs such as weekend delivery. We will reimburse you within 14 days of a return to us, or proof of postage to us. (Usually as soon as goods are checked). If we have arranged pick up of the goods we will deduct the cost from the refund. If requested you must provide proof of purchase (if you do not have this and we are able to track your order, we may at our discretion still refund you, but we may ask you for proof of your identity and address). If you paid by credit or debit card we will only make a refund to the same card.
