rightpricefurniture Terms & Conditions
Thank you for visiting rightpricefurniture.co.uk and viewing our Terms & Conditions. Please read them carefully, as you agree to be bound by them when making a purchase.
Description of products
We make every effort to describe the products offered for sale as accurately as possible. However, we reserve the right to add, remove or amend products without notice.
where given, are supplied by the manufacturers and displayed by us in good faith. They should be regarded as being for guidance only. If you are ordering an item where precise
dimensions are critical, please contact us before ordering and we will make further enquiries on your behalf.
Payment for orders
When an order is placed, we will be in touch by phone to take your payment. We will send you a sales docket, this constitutes a contract between you the customer and us (rightpricefurniture) the retailer. All goods must be paid for prior to delivery.
You may cancel your order within 7 days of placement without charge, the only liability being for any costs already incurred such as delivery. Cancelling your order after 7 days will incur a 25% cancellation fee, or 50% for special order items.
If, on receipt of the goods, you choose within 7 days to return them, your only liability will be the full costs of delivery and collection (please note the full costs will be higher than the subsidised delivery rate).
All furniture from Right Price Furniture comes with a 2 year guarantee against manufacturing defects. Should a problem manifest itself within this period the furniture will be repaired or replaced.
Replacement of damaged goods
Goods that are damaged on arrival with the customer will be replaced at no additional cost. It is in the customers own interests to unwrap and fully inspect all furniture at the time of delivery.
Customers have up to 7 days following delivery to report damage, but claims must be supported by photographs and it is the responsibility of the customer to show the damage has not been caused by any misuse or mishandling following delivery. All claims must be supported by photographs. If you do not have a camera, rightpricefurnitutre will mail you a disposable camera for return and processing by us.
All items featured on this web site are normally delivered to the customer within 6 – 8 weeks. Furniture delivery quotes refer to the maximum time anticipated for customers’ furniture to arrive from the manufacturer to the warehouse of Right Price Furniture in Bridgend. In all cases delivery quotes are not guaranteed but should be regarded as a guide to the anticipated waiting time under normal circumstances.
Charges for not Receiving Delivery
Our delivery services make every effort to arrive within the notified time slot. Customers who fail to keep to this agreed period to receive their furniture waste time and fuel, creating uneccessary expense and delay for other customers. We therefore regret that we must levy a £100 charge on customers who fail to keep to their delivery arrangements.
Please help us to ensure a satisfactory delivery by telling the delivery company if you think a large vehicle might have difficulty reaching the address. This could be because of factors such as narrow roadways, tight corners or low trees, cables or building overhangs. We believe it is better to agree an alternative delivery destination in advance, rather than have our customers suffer delays, inconvenience and the additional cost of the unsuccessful delivery.
Goods delivered by the delivery company will be placed in the customer’s preferred room, provided that reasonable access is available. If assistance is likely to be required in unpacking and inspection of the goods, please mention this to the delivery company when they telephone to arrange delivery.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the furniture they purchase can pass through the doorways, hallways, rooms and staircases to the room of their choice. In the event of restricted access the delivery staff will leave the goods at the nearest convenient point for the customer.
It will not be the responsibility of rightpricefurniture to deliver, unpack or assemble furniture in locations that have no reasonable access for the items being delivered.
A residential phone number must be provided for all orders placed, and this number must be for the address on the order, and in the name of the person placing the order. We must also have a mobile phone number.
Protection of carpets and flooring
Staff making deliveries are required by law to wear protective footwear at all times. As they are not allowed to remove this footwear when unloading the vehicle, gaining access to the property, or carrying furniture into the property, we strongly advise customers to make proper provision to protect their carpets and flooring. We do not accept responsibility for any marks or damage that may inadvertently be caused by delivery staff during the normal course of their work.
Delivery of large items
Larger items, such as beds, wardrobes and tables, in the ranges of fully assembled furniture are often supplied partly dismantled to assist in delivery. Rightpricefurniture does not undertake to assemble these items. However, if assistance is required with assembly this service can be purchased in advance from the delivery company. Please discuss your requirements with them when they telephone to arrange delivery. Please note that the carcasses of wardrobes will flex as they are loaded with clothes, so that while wardrobes can be adjusted to take account of depth imperfections in floors and floor coverings on delivery, further adjustment will still be necessary
during the first few months of ownership as the wardrobe is filled. Failure to properly level wardrobes as they are filled can lead to misalignment of doors and drawers, impairing the use and enjoyment of the furniture.
Every effort is made to make deliveries at the time arranged. However when making hundreds of deliveries every week, the difficulties caused by traffic congestion and weather conditions (including snow, ice, wind, rain and flood) can sometimes cause delays to these schedules. On some rare occasions permitted driving hours regulations may force these delays to extend overnight or longer. We regret we cannot compensate customers for delivery delays caused by events beyond our reasonable control.
Delivery to Remote or hard to access locations
Delivery schedules are created to supply as many customers as possible within the shortest - and quickest - travel routes. This keeps down costs to the benefit of all
customers. Please be aware therefore that it can take longer to incorporate deliveries to remote or hard-to-reach locations into economic delivery schedules - imagine, for example, the costs of taking just one bedside cabinet to a location that is 50 miles out (and 50 miles back) from a typical route. We regret that our customers in these areas may therefore have to wait longer to receive their order at the standard delivery charge rates.
Delivery of self assembly furniture
Self assembly furniture in its own packaging is normally delivered by courier direct from the manufacturer (there are some exceptions to this, such as self-assembly dining sets, please check when ordering if you are unsure). Please see the terms and conditions below relating to delivery by courier.
Delivery by courier (service not yet available in Ireland)
Divan beds and self assembly furniture are normally delivered by courier. Where goods are delivered by courier, the following terms apply:
1. Drivers are often alone, and for heavier items will need some assistance to unload the goods.

4. All Items must be unpacked and checked on delivery prior to signing the delivery documents from the courier company.

The customer will be liable for all delivery and collection costs incurred should they cancel within the 7 days. A refund will only be given, once the goods have been received by us, and inspected.
Care, inspection and handling of goods
Wood will exhibit variations in colour, grain pattern and tone within individual pieces of furniture and between different items of furniture from the same range. This is not a fault but a natural characteristic of the material. Wood will also change colour as it ages. Again this is not a fault but part of the inherent characteristics of the material.
It is not unusual for wooden furniture to crack or split as the timber settles; this happens more frequently with waxed furniture and is completely normal.
Wooden furniture will swell in damp conditions and shrink in hot, dry conditions. The furniture we supply is not suitable for areas which attract strong sunlight and heat such as conservatories.
Waxed furniture requires regular wax treatments to preserve its appearance. The wax is merely a coating on bare wood, and as such the wood will exhibit shiny marks where the wax may have been rubbed. This is natural and unavoidable.
No wooden products are stain or heat resistant, although a lacquered product offers slightly greater protection.
No refunds will be payable for damage caused by mishandling furniture, misuse of furniture or the application of unsuitable coatings, polishes or abrasives.
Customers are required to familiarise themselves with what is commonly understood by the terms ‘distressed finish’ and ‘distressed furniture’ before ordering such items. These terms mean the goods will exhibit a variety of imperfections to the surfaces, such as cracked, flaking or incomplete paintwork or lacquer, marks, gouges, splits or cracks to the surfaces or any other blemishes deliberately intended to create a worn, aged or re-used appearance.
Wood and wood-based furniture has inherent inconsistencies in the absorbency of its surfaces. It is inevitable therefore that this will result in some colour variations in the finish on mass-market painted furniture. Knots
are the marks where a limb or branch has been cut off when trees are converted into planks. In new timber, nutrients in the form of resin may continue to pass through these points for some considerable time, causing 'bleeding'
through to the surface. This is a natural process and is more noticeable with painted furniture.
There are also variations in colour finishes as depicted on the internet due to technical factors, such a lighting of the furniture when photographed, editing of images and variations between video display units (VDUs).
Paint is normally only applied to the external surfaces of furniture. Internal surfaces will either be in bare wood or a thin or mist coat.
If a price has been shown incorrectly on the rightpricefurniture website, the company reserves the right to cancel any customer orders placed at that price and return in full any payment received.
Goods which are ordered to a non-standard specification or finish cannot easily be offered for resale, so they are classed as special order items. Customers who cancel a special order are liable for the costs incurred by rightpricefurniture. This includes any carriage costs incurred or any charges made to us by the manufacturer.
All special orders are subject to a non-refundable deposit of 50%.
