Warranties & Guarantee of Quality of Goods Supplied
The Seller guarantees the product for 12 months from the day of purchase. We operate a full satisfaction policy and if you are not happy with the quality of the goods supplied when they are delivered we will take goods back immediately and refund any monies already paid to us minus the delivery charge. You should therefore satisfy yourself within 28 Days of delivery that goods are satisfactory, and if not, you should contact us within 28 days by email. Normal Manufacturer’s guarantees also apply. Your statutory rights are not affected. Before they buy goods Buyers should satisfy themselves that:
Goods are of in perfect condition and should have no “unacceptable” defects, apart from those pointed out to you by the seller at the time of purchase;
Goods are fit for the purpose for which you intend to use them – including any particular purpose you mention to the seller. For example, whether you intend to use a fireplace as a functional fitting, or purely for decorative non-functional purposes, you should ensure that the product you intend to purchase is fit for that purpose. Similarly, if you intend to burn a particular fuel (coal or a gas fire for example) you should ensure before buying that the product you intend to buy is capable of burning that fuel. We are happy to advise and discuss compatibilities with you;
Goods are as described – by the seller and/or in the catalogue descriptions on this website.
Please note that any faults due to incorrect installation, negligence, rough handling or unfair treatment after receipt and acceptance of goods are not covered by guarantee. Basically, if the fault is clearly ours then Castfireplaces will honour all guarantees on our products. However, if the fault is the Buyer’s we cannot be held responsible.
We are not responisble for any fitting costs of items should they need to replaced under warranty due to faults or the product failing.
Please ensure to check products prior to fitting to ensure they are acceptable as once products have been fitted they can not be replaced or repaired for any quality issues. This is very important as items can be damaged on installation and they will not be replaced or repaired after fitting.
