4.1. For all Products that you order through our website, it is your sole responsibility to choose the colour of their fabrics that is suitable for your intended use of those Products, and to take all appropriate measurements in your property to ensure that the dimensions of those Products are suitable for your intended use of them.

Whilst we try to ensure that the colours of our Products are as accurately displayed as possible on the Website, the actual colours that you see on your computing device may vary depending on the monitor that you use. Any Clearance Products will be identified and be stated to be sold as such on the Website or in our showrooms. Such Products may not necessarily be in perfect condition, so please check before you buy that they are of a satisfactory quality for their intended particular use. Please see our limited returns policy for Clearance Products at clause 9.
4.4. We will endeavour to match as accurately as possible the colour and texture of the fabric of your Products to the samples chosen, but variations in both the colour and texture may occur.

4.6. We have a policy of continuous product development and reserve the right to amend the specification of Products without prior notice in relation to future sales.

If you do not accept a substitute Product which is materially different from the Product which you originally ordered, we will cancel your order for the relevant Product and provide you with a full refund.
5.1. All prices include VAT at the standard rate, unless stated otherwise, at the prevailing rate and are subject to any promotional offer or discount. If you live outside the UK, please note that the price you see on our Website may differ from what we charge you due to, for example, differences in your country’s VAT rate.
5.2. All prices which we have quoted to you are valid for up to 28 days from the date on which the quote was given, unless otherwise indicated by us.
6.1 All orders require a minimum 25% deposit to be paid for at the time of placing the order.

Customers paying by cheque, cash or credit card will be reminded to pay their outstanding balance when the delivery date is booked. When a balance remains outstanding 7 days prior to delivery Delcor reserve the right to:

7.2 All orders are delivered at a subsidised nominal charge, details of which are available on request and within our delivery area.

7.4 Delcor reserve the right to abort a delivery attempt if the circumstances are deemed dangerous to the driver/customer or if damage to the property seems possible. Our delivery department will contact customers 7-10 days prior to the proposed date of the delivery in order to finalise delivery details. We will always try to accommodate customer’s delivery requirements – however, a timed appointment is normally not possible. An approximate guide of am or pm can usually be given but it is difficult to be more specific. Delivery of a special nature, or outside of the Delcor delivery area will be handled by a reputable carrier (delivery charges and details will be provided to the customer prior to placing the order). All carriers are fully covered by their own insurance and take full responsibility for making necessary arrangements to deliver to the customer’s address.
7.5. Recovers are subject to a different collection and delivery charge, details of which are available on request.
7.6. If a customer is unable to accept delivery within the specified lead time, Delcor will store the customer’s order for a period of 14 days. Should delivery be delayed beyond 14 days then Delcor will continue to store the furniture providing all outstanding balance payments are made in full.
7.7. Can we please ask that you make us aware of any claim regarding shortage or damaged merchandise to our head office as soon as possible after delivery taking place.
7.8. Any damage to your property or its contents as a direct result of our delivery service must be reported within 48 hours of the delivery taking place. If you do not report such damage to us within this time frame then we shall not be liable for any such damage.
7.9. Items for collection from the showroom must be collected within 7 days of notification. Payment for the item is required 7 days prior to the collection taking place.
7.10. For all orders from our Website range, we aim to deliver Products to your specified UK Mainland address within eight to twelve weeks of the date on which we accept your order.
7.11. For other orders, including Bespoke Products, this time frame may vary. In all cases we will provide you with an approximate delivery estimate at the time you place your order and we shall provide you with a precise delivery date and time (‘Confirmed Delivery Date’) closer to the date of delivery.
7.12. Our delivery teams only operate during our delivery hours. These are: for Monday to Friday, between 8am – 7pm.
7.13. If you are unable, for whatever reason, to take delivery of your Products on the Confirmed Delivery Date, please contact us at least 48 hours before the Confirmed Delivery Date by emailing our Transport department at firstname.lastname@example.org or customer services on email@example.com. If you do not email us at least 48 hours before the Confirmed Delivery Date we will charge you an administration fee of £25 for arranging a new delivery date.
7.14. We will endeavour to deliver your Products on the Confirmed Delivery Date; if we are unable to do so we will endeavour to contact you at least 48 hours beforehand to arrange a new delivery date.
7.15. In the event we are unable to complete a delivery because of access constraints to and/or in the building, a £80 re-stocking fee will be charged. It is your responsibility to advise us at the time of ordering of any non-standard delivery circumstances that may apply.
7.16. We shall not have any liability to you for any delivery failures or delays that are caused by anything beyond our reasonable control.
Delivery to the UK Mainland
7.16. We will deliver your Products to the UK Mainland only. All other destinations outside the UK please telephone our head office for a quote for delivery, or visit your nearest store.
7.17. To avoid any damage to your property or any items therein during the course of delivery, it is your responsibility to ensure clear access to the relevant room(s) in advance of delivery, including keeping children and pets out of the way, removing any precious items and protecting floors as necessary.
7.18. We are not responsible for the removal or movement of any furniture or other items upon delivery unless we have agreed this with you in advance.
7.19. Deliveries are available without the use of a suitably large lift up to the third floor of a building. If delivery to a higher floor without the use of a suitably large lift is requested then we will inform you whether we can deliver to that floor and, if we can, additional delivery charges may apply.
7.20. It is your responsibility to ensure that two of our delivery team members are able to access the room(s) for delivery of the Products. Our delivery team reserves the right not to deliver the Products if they believe it is unsafe to do so for any reason.
7.21. If we accidentally damage Products in the course of delivery, then our liability for that damage is limited to the repair, refund or replacement of the Products or the value thereof. Where possible, refunds will be made using the same means of payment as you used to purchase the Products. In the case of card payments, refunds will be made to the original card of purchase.
7.22. Any damage to the Products or your property or its contents as a direct result of our delivery service must be reported to us by email within 48 hours of the delivery taking place. If you do not report such damage to us within this time frame then we shall not be liable to you for any such damage.
7.23. Our delivery team may inform you that they are willing to deliver the Products but that, in their opinion, access to the delivery address is inadequate for them to make delivery without risking causing damage to the Products or your property or its contents. In this event, if you request that our delivery team proceeds with delivery then such delivery will be at your own risk and we accept no responsibility for any damage that may occur.
7.24. Our delivery team will unwrap and assemble all Products upon delivery, excluding the outer packaging of any mattress(es), as once opened they cannot be returned. If you would like any mattress packaging removed, you may ask the delivery team to do so but, in doing so, you accept that you will not be able to return or exchange the mattress(es).
Delivery to locations outside the UK Mainland
7.25. If you require the Products at a location outside the UK Mainland we can deliver to any port on the UK Mainland agreed with you at the time of accepting your order; it is for you to arrange for the onward shipping. It is your responsibility to check the condition of the Products at the location where we deliver (this can either be you personally, a representative of the shipping company, a relative or an employee of yours). Liability for the Products becomes yours upon the earlier of our delivering the Products to you or your agent at the relevant port or the signature of our relevant dispatch note by you or your agent. Please note that your right of return is modified as set out in clause 9.7.
7.26. Products transported outside the UK may be subject to customs, handling, import and/or export duties, and may require licences, clearances and other consents in order for the Products to be so transported. You will be responsible for the payment of any such duties and for obtaining and maintaining any such licences, clearances and consents. We therefore recommend that you contact your local customs office or an experienced export carrier for further information before placing your order.
7.27. You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the territory for which the Products are destined. We shall not be liable for any breach by you of any such laws and regulations.
8. Risk and title
8.1. The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery to the UK Mainland address which we specify in our order confirmation to you.

9.1 It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that all furniture details on the order form are correct prior to manufacture of the product – this includes any requested modifications. Should the order be altered without valid reason whilst at a stage of production, the customer shall pay a reasonable pre-estimate of the consequential monetary loss to Delcor.
9.2 Customers will lose 60% of the total order value if furniture is manufactured to an exact specification and is no longer required/ returned to Delcor.

It is your responsibility to advise us at the time of ordering of any non-standard delivery circumstances that may apply.
9.8. If you exercise your right to cancel an internet Product then (subject to the terms of this clause 9) we will refund the price of that Product you paid to us when you placed the order, including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us) up to the amount of the least expensive delivery. Where possible, refunds will be made using the same means of payment as you used to purchase the relevant Products. In the case of card payments, refunds will be made to the original card of purchase.
9.9. Products must be returned to us in a saleable condition and we reserve the right to make reasonable deductions from the amount refunded to you if there are signs of wear and/or damage to the Products. All returned Products will be inspected in our warehouse and, if deemed to be damaged or sullied, we will charge you a fee to reflect the amount by which the value of the Products has been diminished.
9.10. We will collect any Products which are the subject of a cancelled order from the UK Mainland address to which we originally delivered the Products.
9.11. If you order Products and you arrange for the Products to be shipped to a location outside the UK Mainland, clauses 9.2 and 9.6 are modified in that you still have the right to return the Products but it is your responsibility to arrange for and pay for the Products to be shipped back to the UK Mainland and stored there until the time that we have agreed to collect them. We will collect the Products from any address on the UK Mainland (for example, a relative’s house or a shipping and storage facility); unfortunately we cannot wait at a port to collect the Products direct from any vessel.
9.12. If you wish to exercise your right to cancel a Product order please contact us on 0191 237 1303 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
9.13. This clause 9 does not affect your statutory rights.

The fabric must be a minimum of 137 centimetres wide and once approved the fabric supplied must be accompanied by the relevant cigarette and match test certificate to meet the requirements of BS2543. However, Delcor cannot be held responsible for any problems associated with wear or fabric fading in relation to aftercare.
10.2. This clause 10 applies to any fabric (or other item) that you supply to us or which you specify and is not on our Website (‘Customer Own Material’). We refer to any Product that, at your request, we make with a Customer Own Material as a ‘Customer Own Material Product’.
10.3. We may refuse to use any Customer Own Material which we consider to be unsuitable.
10.4. You agree to ensure that your Customer Own Material is in all respects safe and suitable for application in the Product.
10.5. Customer Own Materials will become owned by us when we receive them; ownership in any of them which we return to you (whether unused or incorporated in the Product) will revert to you upon delivery to you.
10.6. We may cut, work on and otherwise treat and deal with your Customer Own Materials as we consider appropriate in the course of making the Product and (unless you state in writing with your order that surplus should be returned to you) we may use or dispose of excess fabric or items as we think fit.
11.1. Our guarantees do not cover fair wear and tear, neglect, abuse or misuse of your products (including failure to follow any product care instructions), loss or damage including rusting or corrosion due to unreasonable exposure to water, sunlight, heat or infestation of boring insects, accidental damage due to fire, smoke, explosion, lightening, sunlight, or animals or damage caused by a third party. Our guarantees are limited to products sold and retained in the United Kingdom and used solely for non-commercial purposes.
11.2. All guarantees begin from the date of delivery of the furniture. All Delcor Ltd (“Delcor”) furniture is guaranteed to be free of manufacturing defects, subject to reasonable wear and tear in a normal domestic environment, as specified below:
11.3. If you wish to make a claim under our Guarantees, please contact us by phone on 0191 237 1303, or by e-mail at email@example.com
11.4. Where defective Products are covered by one of our Guarantees, we will endeavour to repair them free of charge. If a repair is not possible you will be offered a replacement and only if a suitable replacement is not available will you be offered a refund. Where possible, refunds will be made using the same means of payment as you used to purchase the relevant Products. In the case of card payments, refunds will be made to the original card of purchase.
11.5. Our Guarantees may not be assigned to a third party.
11.6. The law gives you certain statutory rights for the repair, exchange or refund of faulty products. These rights are not affected by this clause 11.
12.1. Delcor and the fabric manufacturers / suppliers guarantee all fabrics against manufacturing defects for 1-year.
12.2. Whilst all fabrics are manufactured to the highest possible standard and only the best dye stuffs are used, sunlight will fade most fabrics and leathers and precautions should always be taken to protect all textiles from exposure to direct sunlight/heat.
12.3. Fabrics are categorised for wear based on the results of the BS Martindale rub test. Delcor recommend that your chosen fabric should achieve a minimum rating of general domestic use.
12.4. Where relevant the application of fabric protection treatment is covered by a 5-year guarantee, full details and prices are available upon request.
12.5. Fabric batches may vary. The majority of our fabrics are created from natural materials, and thus, unlike manmade products, there can be slight variations between batches. The most common variation is that of colour – although the actual variation is often almost negligible or very slight. Some fabrics are more susceptible to this than others.
12.6. Whilst we guarantee to make all your order from the same batch, we cannot guarantee that subsequent orders will match your original order.
12.7. Because of the nature of the materials used, any finishes that are applied to the exterior of our Products may alter the final colour and feel of the fabric.
12.8. We cannot accept any responsibility for fading or discolouration caused by exposure to direct or indirect sunlight. Sunlight affects different fabrics in different ways, but sunlight, whether direct or indirect, will nevertheless always affect fabric colour. Darker fabrics, because they have further to fall, are likely to discolour and fade more. Different fabrics, dark or light are liable to fade or discolour at different rates.
12.9. After delivery, we cannot accept any responsibility for fading or discolouration, due to exposure or contact with any chemicals sprayed nearby or applied directly. Please also note that there are certain aerosol sprays, most particularly odour neutralisers and nicotine neutralisers, which contain chemicals that can react with fabric dyes (the cans should warn against spraying close to upholstery without first covering it).
12.10. We recommend that you dry clean all removable covers from our Products.
1. Only selected fabrics are suitable for washing and these are identified in our stores. Please ask for details.
2. All other fabrics should be dry cleaned by a reputable cleaning company. Back-coated fabrics should be dry cleaned in situ. In all cases, should you be unsure of how to clean your purchase please contact us prior to attempting any cleaning methods.
3. All fabrics will be subject to an element of graceful degradation in both use and washing or dry cleaning. Please ask for a copy of our care instructions.
4. When furniture is ordered at separate times, Delcor cannot guarantee to colour match fabrics or other materials.
5. Normal settling of foam, feather and fibre should be expected and is a characteristic of all cushions. Regular plumping and turning of cushions is essential. Please refer to our furniture care instructions for further details.
6. All upholstery supplied by Delcor complies with the requirements of the ‘Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 (as amended)’.
7. All furniture sizes quoted in our sales literature are approximate and intended for guidance only. Delcor will use reasonable endeavours to supply the customer with the exact goods ordered.
8. Any prices quoted by Delcor are provisional only and bound by written quotations Delcor reserve the right to increase the price at any time. Orders placed on hold for more than a period of 6 months may be subject to a price increase.
9. If the furniture is not of a satisfactory quality, Delcor initially require the opportunity to establish & rectify any problems. This does not affect the customer’s statutory rights if the furniture is not of merchantable quality.

Vulnerable Customer Policy
The purpose of this policy is to ensure that the operations of Delcor Limited do not have any negative impact on vulnerable customers.
For the purposes of this policy, vulnerable customers are customers and prospective customers whose ability or circumstances require us to take extra precautions in the way we sell and provide our service to ensure that they are not disadvantaged in any way.
What is a vulnerable customer?
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) defines a vulnerable customer as “someone who, due to their personal circumstances, is especially susceptible to detriment, particularly when a firm is not acting with appropriate levels of care.”
The FCA expects firms like us to treat customers fairly when we are dealing with people with vulnerable circumstances.
Identifying a vulnerable customer
Our staff are trained to identify vulnerable customers so we can take extra steps to assist outside of our standard procedures. However, it is not always possible to recognise these characteristics. Therefore, if you believe you may fit the criteria for a vulnerable customer, please read this policy and notify us immediately of your needs.
We recognise that certain groups of customers may be vulnerable. Whilst not all customers in these groups may be vulnerable, we will consider a customer’s individual circumstances where a potential vulnerability is identified.
These groups may include but are not restricted to:
- Customers with communication difficulties (including learning difficulties and English not being their first language, dyslexia).

The Company is committed to treating all its customers fairly. Treating customers fairly is about establishing a culture of fairness throughout the business that creates an understanding of the customer’s needs and providing appropriate products and services. To achieve this objective, our Treating Customers Fairly policy is more than about having a policy; it is about instilling the right culture and values throughout the business from the top in strategy and decision-making, through to the team in sales, administration, and production. This ensures the right consumer outcomes are achieved.
This Treating Customers Fairly Policy is designed to set out the responsibilities for the fair treatment of customers and demonstrate how the Company continually assesses how it treats its customers fairly.
In all circumstances the Company and its staff must treat the Company’s customers fairly. Our policy will be a continuing and on-going process within all parts of the Company’s business which all staff will be required to always follow and embed in all their dealings with the Company’s customers.
The Treating Customers Fairly policy is further supported by the Company’s following customer commitments: –
Keeping things simple
- Communicate clearly and explain things in plain English
- Help ensure the customer understands our products and services
Keeping things easy
- Provide the customer with a named contact during their sales process and aftercare

Keep things personal

Where we engage with any other company in a way that brings that company into contact with our customers, we will hold that company to the same standards as ourselves and expect them to demonstrate compliance with this policy.
