LEISUREBENCH TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALES

1.0: INTRODUCTION

These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights as a consumer. The consumers statutory rights are not excluded or limited in any way in accordance with the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended).

By viewing and/or purchasing from this website (www.leisurebench.co.uk) or purchasing via telephone or email, you are entering into a legally binding contract and are deemed to have accepted the following terms and conditions as set out below and in the separate privacy policy. If you do not agree to be legally bound to the terms below or if you have any questions regarding our terms of use, please contact our team who will be pleased to assist with your query.

These terms and conditions may be changed at any time and will be posted online. Certain provisions of these terms and conditions may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages of this Website i.e. certain product warranties.

2.0:  ORDERING FROM US

You are deemed to have placed an order with us by ordering via our online checkout process or via telephone or email. As part of our online checkout process, you will be given the opportunity to check your order and to correct any errors prior to confirming the order. Once completed, we will send you an order acknowledgement detailing the products you have ordered and the pricing to the email address provided during the ordering process. The order is only accepted by LeisureBench Ltd upon dispatch of the ordered goods and confirmed via a dispatch confirmation e-mail, even if your payment has been processed immediately. Payments made via email or telephone will also be followed up with an order acknowledgement detailing the products you have ordered and the pricing, to the email address provided during the ordering process, unless you have specifically stated that you do not require one or you are an accounts customer. We will notify you by phone or e-mail if we cannot accept your order, as soon as we are aware of any issues.

2.1: We may refuse to accept an order:

  • Where goods are not available
  • Where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment
  • If there has been a pricing or description error
  • If you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions

 

3.0:  PRICING

3.1: Where we charge separately for shipping, the appropriate rates are set out in accordance with our selected couriers’ rates. Unforeseen extra costs may be incurred with courier charges, for which we would call the customer to discuss in order to proceed with delivery.

3.2: Should an incorrect price be displayed, LeisureBench Ltd reserves the right to refuse orders as set out in ‘Ordering From Us’ (above).

3.3: All prices quoted by the Company are only valid at the time of contract and are exclusive of any other matters, unless otherwise agreed and may be changed at any time.

3.4: The Company reserves the right to revise the quoted price in the event of unforeseen and extraordinary expenses for the Company appertaining the goods

3.5: VAT - All prices stated show VAT at the applicable rate. For orders made outside of the UK all orders will be charged including the applicable UK rate of VAT. Where appropriate, any UK VAT paid can then be claimed back through your home country.

3.6: Pro-Forma Invoices and Quotes are valid for 30 days from the date stated on the invoice. If cost prices change, the invoice or quote may become void.

4.0:  DELIVERY

4.1:  Delivery is deemed to be successful once the products have arrived at the address provided for delivery.

4.2:  If a signature is required, you should check the number of parcels and inspect the state and contents of the goods before signing. Should there be any issues, these must be notified to LeisureBench Ltd by email – support@leisurebench.co.uk.

4.3: If an item is incorrect, delivery should be refused.

4.4: If an item is delivered to the wrong address due to an entry error, it will be the responsibility of the customer to retrieve the item.

4.5:  Other products may be left at the recipients address without a signature, except where the customer has specified that it must not be left in their absence. If this option is requested, and goods are left unsupervised LeisureBench Ltd will not accept liability for the goods.

4.6:  Once delivered, the responsibility for the product is deemed to be the cardholder’s and any loss or damage to the product is then at your own risk. This is particularly notable when deliveries are made to public/work places such as hospitals, hotels etc where the signature of any authorised body is deemed to be proof of delivery.

4.7:  In some areas such as the Scottish Highlands, UK islands and Northern Ireland, additional shipping fees may be incurred after your order has been placed. These are unforeseeable and are instructed by the courier on a case-by-case basis, and therefore, are not foreseen within the delivery price given at the first instance. In these cases, we will contact you first, in order to confirm that you still wish to continue the order.  Any additional fees due will be charged at cost.

4.8:  The company will not accept any liability for late delivery of the goods and delivery time will not be of the essence of the contract.

4.9:  The Company will not accept liability for non-delivery, where this is caused by circumstances beyond its control.

4.10:  In the case of a delivery being refused or aborted at the delivery address, we reserve the right to charge for a second delivery, as our delivery obligation only stands for the first delivery attempt.

4.11:  White glove orders with failed pre-booked deliveries will be quoted for re-delivery. A delivery date will be booked in to allow time to accept the delivery.

4.12:  Please note, all garden furniture deliveries are kerbside only unless otherwise stated. At the sole discretion of the driver, they may help carry/move the item(s) around the house to the back. Transporting furniture sets to the rear of the house will not be classed as part of the contract and will be a separate verbal contract formed by the delivery person and the customer. Following on from this, certain products are delivered on a free pallet with packing to protect. It is the customer’s responsibility to dispose of this 'packaging' and not that of LeisureBench Ltd.

4.13:  In all cases, we strive to deliver goods within 30 days from date of order. If it is apparent at the time of order that the delivery period will take longer than 30 days, we will advise the customer before accepting and completing the order processing (if taken via email or telephone).

4.14: Pre-arranged deliveries with account customers are recorded and any failed deliveries where the agreed party is not in attendance to receive the item, will result in a charge.

5.0: CANCELLATION AND RETURNS POLICY

We aim to offer a no hassle returns policy. These general terms and conditions apply to all purchases from LeisureBench Ltd, unless specifically expressed below. You have the statutory right to cancel your order for any reason within 14 days from the day that you receive the item.

5.1:  If you wish to cancel your order, please email your details and order reference to support@leisurebench.co.uk or call 01949 862 920. Any order cancellations must be confirmed by email prior to despatch and once despatched the returns policy is as set out below in for the various product categories. Please note that most orders are picked and packed before 11:00am the next working day, so urgent notification is appreciated in order to intercept shipping in a timely manner. If shipping is not intercepted in time, the cost may be deducted from your refund.

5.2: So as to comply with the UK Consumer Contracts Regulations, all orders (except custom made or bespoke products) have a ‘14 Day Cooling Off Period’. The cardholder is liable for all return shipping costs under this right.

5.3: Unless confirmed in writing from LeisureBench Ltd, all orders must be paid for before delivery. In the event of a custom-made item being ordered, this must be paid for in full prior to delivery. Samples may be requested and will be provided at the discretion of LeisureBench Ltd. Any shortage of payment will result in the products not being dispatched and LeisureBench Ltd reserves the right to charge associated costs incurred in time, carriage (including aborted deliveries), and for the custom-made product ordered.

5.4:  In addition, all returned/exchanged products (including the boxes) must be in their ORIGINAL CONDITION i.e. NOT USED, MARKED or ALTERED (stained, oiled, painted etc), and they must be in their ORIGINAL PACKAGING. Please do not tape up or write on boxes. Any damage to goods/boxes, or sign of use may result in a reduced refund to the customer. Goods must also be suitably packaged. Customers are advised to obtain proof of collection from their courier of choice. Responsibility of the goods remains that of the customer until safely received by LeisureBench Ltd and LeisureBench Ltd accepts no liability for goods lost or damaged in transit back to our warehouse.

5.5:  All damages/defects must be reported within 30 days from the date of delivery. The damaged/defective items will be replaced within a reasonable period of time and at no cost to the customer. We will require photographic evidence of the damage/defect before any replacement/collection can be instigated. 

5.6: A customer can exercise their right to return the product under the 14-day return procedure. LeisureBench Ltd will provide an address for the goods to be returned to, but the customer needs to arrange their own transport for the goods. Return costs will vary depending on the nature and location of the goods. Upon receipt, the goods will be checked and if not damaged or used, a full refund will be processed. Should there be any damage to the returned goods, LeisureBench Ltd will contact the customer to provide images to confirm the damage and an indication of the repair cost, before processing a partial refund. LeisureBench Ltd may be able to arrange collection of the goods, the cost of which will be debited from the original amount paid prior to any refund and will be quoted at cost, including VAT.

5.7: All returned garden furniture items must be suitably packaged in their original packaging and if delivered on a pallet, must be collected on the same size pallet.

Rattan Garden Furniture Note:

All of our rattan garden furniture has been carefully hand-woven and is crafted from synthetic all weather rattan weave. As the material is synthetic, woven table tops may move during hot weather which is due to the natural expansion of the material and is perfectly normal. As is cools down the weave will return back to the original taught finish. This is not a defect of the product and will happen with all brands of rattan garden furniture.

Wooden Items Note:

Timber is a natural product and will expand and contract with changing climatic conditions which may lead to slight cracking of your garden furniture. Splitting/cracking is perfectly normal and does not affect the longevity or structural strength of your furniture. Colours and designs are subject to change and may vary due to the natural materials. If the condition of the crack worsens, to the point where it is possible to fit a pound coin in it, please contact us with photographs and we will investigate.

Garden Furniture Cushions Note:

All cushions for garden furniture sets should be stored indoors when not in use unless expressly specified that the cushions themselves can be left outside. Even when covers are used to protect garden furniture the cushions must still be stored indoors.

All returns should be sent to:
