ADDITIONAL NOTES

Manufacturers’ warranties are only valid in the UK.  It is the responsibility of the purchaser to register all warranty periods with the relevant manufacturer.  It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that all products are installed and commissioned by competent persons registered with the appropriate professional bodies and with the correct levels of skills, competence and knowledge.

We would advise that you do not schedule an installer, until you have received delivery of your goods and they have been checked for any discrepancies.  Any discrepancies should then be reported to us as a matter of urgency, after which we will endeavor to rectify them as quickly as possible.  Plumb Arena will not be liable for any costs incurred, if goods are not checked before an installer has been arranged.

Please ensure the goods are ordered well in advance of your shipping schedules.

We process your order right away. We will normally send your order to you in 2 - 3 business days. Certain items listed within our Website are not standard stock items and can take longer than the stated delivery time.

All customers will be contacted by email to confirm a convenient delivery date between the days of Monday and Friday 8 AM to 5 PM (excluding weekends) - we are unable to give exact delivery times but will endeavor to assist wherever we can.

RIGHT TO CANCEL

Under the United Kingdom's distance selling regulations, you have the right to cancel the contract for the purchase of any of these items within a period of 14 working days, beginning with the day following the day on which the item is delivered. This is called a “14 Day Cooling-Off Period”.

During this 14 day cooling- off period, you have a duty of care for the goods; therefore it is advised that any goods you wish to return are kept in their original packaging to ensure they remain undamaged and in a good condition. Please note that you will be responsible for the cost of returning the goods to our suppliers unless we delivered goods to you in error or they are faulty. Please also be aware that under no circumstance should goods be returned direct to Plumb Arena Limited’s office, unless otherwise advised by one of our representatives.

The return address will be specified to you prior to return; therefore any goods returned to us in error and not to the specified address will incur an additional carriage charge. Should returned goods arrive back to us or our supplier in a damaged condition, the goods will be returned to you and you will be responsible for the total cost. Please note this will not apply to any goods deemed as Special Order or Made to Order products.

If your item is not in stock, we will place the order with our supplier and let you know the estimated delivery date. You will have the option to cancel your order should you wish to do so.
