Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions cover the sale of The Wine Barrel Furniture Company products bought on this website, in store, at shows, and via proposals. By placing an order with The Wine Barrel Furniture Company you are agreeing to the terms and conditions as stated below.
The style and originality of our furniture comes from the natural materials used. Any indentations, blocks and fillings are part and parcel of reclaimed wood. The unique qualities of the materials add to its character.
Glass items (e.g. glass topped tables) also contain 'inclusions' as this is inherent in the glass toughening process.
Care of Wood
Real wood will naturally acclimatise to its environment within the first year. Any movement requiring restoration will be dealt with by us. If you experience this contact us.
Shipping and Delivery
We do the majorities of deliveries within the UK ourselves. Smaller items are sent via a nationwide courier service.
It is your responsibility to ensure suitable access for delivery (this includes access for a large van to the entrance of the building/ prior notification of stairs and any potential obstacles / doorways and corners to be suitable for the furniture to easily pass through).
A lot of our furniture is large and extremely heavy. Our delivery drivers can not lift furniture above waist height for manual handling reasons.
Of course we always make every 'reasonable' effort to deliver the furniture to where you would like it in your house, however if it is not suitable, or safe to do so we withhold the right to deliver the furniture to another address of your choosing within 10 miles of the original delivery address. If the furniture cannot fit into a property (i.e. access is insufficient in width, height, or general accessibility) no refunds can be offered.
At present we cannot accept overseas furniture orders online. Please contact us and we will be happy to arrange international shipment to you at a very competitive rate.
Please be advised Items on your order may be dispatched at different times, however only the one delivery charge will apply. Full payment must be made before any product is dispatched from us.
Health and Safety
To comply with regulations our drivers cannot remove, reposition or dispose of other items of furniture for you. They can only deliver through main entrances and doorways and NOT through windows or rooftops. They also cannot remove their safety boots.
If you want to protect your floors during delivery, the onus is on you to supply floor covering (both for carpets and wooden flooring. The Wine Barrel Furniture Company cannot be held responsible for damage to floors or carpets if they are insufficiently protected. Please be advised our delivery personnel are required to wear steel toe capped boots at all times for health and safety reasons.
Designated items may be collected from our workshop by prior arrangement only. When ordering online, the option to collect from us will be available on checkout (if the item is suitable for collection).
