Terms and Conditions

All orders made online or by any other means are subject to our terms and conditions.

1. Our Contract

1.1 These Terms and Conditions govern the supply of goods sold by

“Cast Iron Air Brick Company”, Down Farm, Brayford, Devon, EX32 7QQ

(“we” and “us”) to the customer (“you”) and constitute the entire and only agreement between us in relation thereto.

1.2 All orders placed by you are on the basis of these Terms and Conditions and are subject to acceptance by us by delivery of the goods to you at which point a legally binding contract is constituted between us. The processing of your payment and acknowledgment of your order does not constitute legal acceptance of your order.

2. Price & Payment

2.1 The price payable for the goods you order is as set out on our web site at the time you place your order or, if you order from one of our price list/catalogues, as set out in the price list/catalogue from which you order provided it is a current catalogue, plus any charges for delivery as set out in the order form.

2.2 We reserve the right to change the price of goods due to market conditions but we will confirm the prevailing price with you before accepting your order. We are not obliged to accept your order for such goods and may decline it or limit the order quantity.

2.3 On occasion, the prices payable of goods advertised on our web site may differ from those prices offered in the then current catalogue and we are under no obligation to honour any web site price if there is such a difference. Generally there is a 5% discount for goods ordered online.

The customer is responsible for ensuring we have the correct address for delivery, in the event of paypal or ebay orders we will deliver to the shipping address unless the customer informs us at the time of ordering to deliver to a different address. In the unlikely event that we do not make the goods available to you within 30 days of accepting your order you will have the option of cancelling your order by notifying us prior to delivery. A valid signature will be required on collection or delivery. In the unlikely event that you have not received all the goods within the stated delivery time, you must notify us immediately. You must not schedule or commence any installation work until after you have received your order and checked all the goods for any defects or missing parts.

3.2 For reasons of health and safety and to avoid any property damage, most “heavy items” can only be delivered to the exterior of a ground floor location at the delivery address.

We will not provide any unpacking, installation or fitting services upon delivery.

If the item is not left after 2 or 3 attempts to deliver, the courier will return the goods back to us, once received back at our depot we will cancel your order and refund any moneys owed less 10% restocking charge and the carriage.
