Shipping & Transit
 
Shipping Prices are for mainland UK only. If you do not see a suitable shipping charge please contact us to arrange for a quotation.
 
With each Stove order we offer a site survey. This is carried out by a HETAS registered engineer and is provided prior to shipment avoiding expensive mistakes and ensuring the ideal choice of stove and professional advice is given. Site survey is offered free of charge if within 20Kms by the most direct road route of SL4 5BZ and is chargeable at the indicated rate beyond this distance.
 
Stoves will normally be delivered within 2-3 working days of completion of site survey, but please allow up to 21 days (if we believe delivery will take this long, we will of course let you know). Delivery dates are our best estimates based on the information available to us at the time and are a guide only. We are not responsible for consequential loss in any form due to late delivery.
 
For large items delivery is usually made on a pallet, or by courier delivery if the order is smaller.

The carriers will only deliver the goods to the nearest entrance to your property; they will not be able to bring the goods inside. This is for insurance and health and safety reasons. Stoves are heavy items and you should arrange for help to get it inside. Steps, restricted access, soft ground etc. will cause problems and should be planned for in advance. With heavy objects, the carrier can reasonably be expected to use his "sack truck" or "pump truck" to move them on level ground to a suitable location.

Please ensure somebody is available at the delivery address to receive goods and help the driver unload and take items to the delivery destination.
 
Should a pallet have to be redelivered due to no-one being available to accept delivery of the pallet. Then a redelivery charge may be due. We will of course let you know if ever this is the case.

When receiving goods we ask that you inspect them for damage when they arrive. Items that are signed for are deemed to be complete and to have been delivered in good condition. The goods must be thoroughly inspected before being accepted. Damaged goods must be rejected and the carrier's delivery note marked "Rejected Damaged". If the goods appear sound but the packaging has been damaged, the delivery note must signed and marked "Package Damaged". Should the goods then be found to be damaged having been properly examined, it must be reported to us, either by phone or by email, giving full details, within 24 hours of delivery. We cannot then accept claims for damage in transit or missing items after 24 hours of receipt. Beyond that time, the carriers insurance cover will lapse and no claims can be accepted.

Damaged goods will be collected and replaced at our cost subject to the conditions below. Alternatively, where possible, replacement parts such as glass, firebricks etc., will be sent to the customer to bring the product up to standard. Stoves can arrive with marks on the paintwork due to abrasion of the packaging in transit. Where paint is not included in the standard pack, it will be forwarded free of charge via the stove manufacturer.
 
Where stove and installation are ordered together then Windsor & Eton Stoves Installation Team will deliver the stove upon the day of installation. In this case the team will have pre-inspected the goods and parts. The customer will be required to sign for receipt of goods so again we ask that you inspect them for damage when they arrive. Items that are signed for are deemed to be complete and to have been delivered in good condition. If you are unable to check goods then please sign for the goods as “unchecked” or “unseen”. If anything is damaged then please let us know as soon as possible. We cannot then accept claims for damage in transit or missing items after 24 hours of receipt.
 
Faulty / Defective Goods
 
Should you find that goods delivered are faulty. Please let us know as soon as possible. We will normally ship replacement(s) free of charge.
 
Please contact us first if you receive faulty good as we will not pay for replacement parts or repair services without Windsor & Eton Stoves Limited prior express consent.
