Terms & Conditions
These terms come into effect on April 11th, 2018.
We strongly advise against booking installers until goods have been received and checked as, regrettably, we cannot be held responsible for any consequential losses.
These conditions may not be modified or varied unless Bristol Carpets agrees in writing and Bristol Carpets will not be deemed to accept any other conditions not waive any of these conditions by failing to object to provisions contained in any purchase order or other communications from the Buyer. No person has authority on behalf of the Company to vary any conditions except by a written variation signed by a director or the company secretary.
If the Buyer places an order with the Company without requesting a quotation from the Company or before such quotation has been provided, all deliveries carried out in satisfaction of such order will be subject to these conditions.
Buyers are requested to make purchases via our website. Buyers wishing to open a credit account are requested to complete and sign an Application for Credit Account form (“Application Form”). The Proprietor(s), Partner(s) or an authorised employee (if a Limited Company), must sign the Application Form. Application forms must be submitted with the last twelve months of audited accounts. Until an Application Form has been received and a credit account approved [in writing], orders will not be accepted until cleared funds have been received. Credit accounts are subject to a minimum spend of £100.00 GBP per order.
Unless otherwise agreed by the Company in writing, accounts are payable in full prior to delivery of the Goods taking place. If the Buyer has exceeded any agreed credit terms, the Company may demand immediate payment of all amounts outstanding from the Buyer to the Company on any account. The Company reserves the right to withdraw credit at any time and demand immediate payment of all monies outstanding.
Where the contract is to be or may be fulfilled in separate instalments, deliveries or parts, payment for each such instalment delivery or part will be made as if the same constituted a separate contract. Failure by the Buyer to pay for an instalment in accordance with this clause will entitle the Company without prejudice to it’s other rights and remedies to suspend further deliveries of Goods under any other contract to the Buyer, pending payment by the Buyer.
The Buyer will indemnify the Company against all cost, losses and liability including but not limited to all legal expenses and disbursements incurred by the Company in recovering any amount which is overdue from the Buyer to the Company pursuant of the Agreement or otherwise.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing all orders are executed subject to prices and any relevant discounts ruling at the date of receipt of the order and any price list of the Company whether published or not will not affect the right of the Company to charge for Goods in accordance with this clause. All prices are subject to the addition of Value Added Tax at the appropriate rate. Payment of the Price quoted and the VAT must be paid at sale, prior to delivery arrangements being made.
Any contract will be subject to the Company being satisfied as to the Buyer’s credit worthiness and without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing the Company may in its absolute discretion, having informed the Buyer that the Goods are ready for delivery, refrain from delivering the Goods until such time as the Buyer tenders the purchase money to the Company in a form satisfactory to the Company.
Please note that there are small parts of the UK that we do not cover on our internal courier network. In instances where orders are received with a delivery address that we do not cover on our internal transport, we will always inform you of the additional cost for delivering before processing your received order. You will be given the option of whether to pay the additional cost for the delivery or receive a full refund. We will always communicate this to you before despatching your order.

If your order arrives as arranged but we’re unable to deliver because there’s nobody home, there’s inadequate help available, the goods are refused, or the order is cancelled whilst in transit (goods are in transit 24 hours before the chosen delivery date) you will be liable for any additional costs incurred for the goods being returned.
Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods will pass to the Buyer upon delivery.
All descriptive and forwarding specifications, drawings and particulars of weights and dimensions issued by the Company are approximate only and intended only to present a general idea of the goods to which they refer and will not form part of the contract. All particulars are provided by the manufacturer.
Nothing in these terms and conditions excludes or limits the liability of the Company for death or personal injury caused by the Company’s negligence or fraudulent misrepresentation, or the conditions as to title implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 as amended from time to time.
Unless otherwise agreed by the Company in writing, these conditions will in all respects be construed and operate as an English contract, in conformity with English Law, and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
The Company will not be liable to the Buyer in any matter or be deemed to be in breach of this contract because of any delay in performing or any failure to perform any of the Company’s obligations under this contract if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond the Company’s reasonable control.
Goods bought from promotional offers that are offered as clearance or end of line will be refundable at the sale price only. If the item is no longer stocked by the Company there will be no material replacement. Credit can be issued against a replacement product.
If you find your Bristol Carpets basket total cheaper elsewhere (from a genuine, recognised flooring competitor in the United Kingdom) within seven days of your purchase from Bristol Carpets we will guarantee to refund the difference to you.
