4.Once you decide to accept the Quote, I will provide an invoice for 50% of the Quote price.

7.By entering into an Order with me you warrant that you have the right to contract with me to supply the Products at the property where it is/they are to be delivered, provided and/or installed.
8.If ou wish to make changes to the Order once placed, please contact me. I will let you know if the change is possible and how any changes may affect the price of the Order, the timing to the supply or anything else that may be necessary as the result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
9.Once your Order has been accepted, the Order will take me a reasonable period of time to complete. I will try give you an indication of how long it will take me to fulfil the Order although this is a guide only and there is no guarantee that I will be able to complete the Order by this date.
10.Relevant laws, legislative and regulatory requirements have been introduced to reduce the strangulation risk to small children posed by looped blind cords. These laws, legislation and regulations make it mandatory that all blinds should be fitted with appropriate safety devices, which will be fitted as part of the Order.
Supply of Third-Party Goods
11.To the extent that I am supplying any third-party goods including fabric, curtain poles or any other goods to you (“the Third-Party Goods”) from external suppliers, I will use all reasonable endeavours to supply the Goods as set out in the Quote.
12.In circumstances where it is not possible to supply the Goods in line with the Quotation (for example, if a fabric is out of stock or a curtain pole has been discontinued etc.). In this event, I shall notify you and either:
a.we shall mutually decide on an alternative product in which case the alternative produce will be deemed to have replaced the original product under the Order. If there is an increase in price between the original product and the alternative product, I shall provide you with an invoice for the difference to be paid in 7 working days. Any late payment of this invoice may result in delays to your Order; or
b.I will refund you any monies you have already paid towards the Goods within 14 working days and they will be removed from the Order.

I will, at my option, repair or replace the defective parts of the Order, or refund the price of the defective Order in full.
15.I will not be liable for an Order’s failure to comply with the warranty set out in paragraph 13 in any of the following events:
a.The defect arises because you failed to follow my oral or written instructions as to installation, use and maintenance of the goods.
b.During our initial discussions and/or meeting I will advise you as to the most suitable products (for example fabric type, styles, cost etc.) to meet your requirements. Any final decision on what you order from me is up to you. I do not accept any liability for the finished product including but not limited to fitness for purpose, freedom from defects, and that the goods are of a satisfactory quality if you do not follow my recommendations and the warranty provided in paragraph 13 will not apply to that part of the Order.
