Prices:

Although we attempt to ensure that all pricing information on our website is accurate, occasionally an error may occur and goods may be priced incorrectly.  If we discover a pricing error we will, at our discretion, either contact you and ask you whether you wish to continue with the order at the correct price or notify you that we have cancelled your order.  We will not be obliged to supply goods at the incorrect price.

Prices that are reduced for sales and promotions are only valid for the specified period.

We reserve the right to adjust prices, offers, goods and specifications of goods on www.higginscladding.co.uk at our discretion at any time before (but not after) we accept your order.

Your Order:

You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order by clicking the “confirm order” button on the check out page.

All orders made by you through www.higginscladding.co.uk are subject to acceptance by us.  We may choose not to accept your order for any reason and will not be liable to you or to anyone else in those circumstances.

After submitting an order to us we will send you an order acknowledgement email with your order number and details of the goods that you have ordered.  Please note this email is an acknowledgement and is not an acceptance of your order.

For certain goods, information concerning stock availability is not available on www.higginscladding.co.uk.  If you order goods which are not available from stock, we will contact you by e-mail or by telephone to discuss how you wish to proceed.  You will have the option to wait until the goods are available from stock, or cancel your order.

Payment:

The total cost of your order is the price of the goods and delivery charges as set out in our pricing policy

Payment can be made by most major credit or debit cards, American Express or BACS transfer.  We will not accept cash on delivery.

You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours.  All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer.  If the issuer of your card refuses to authorize payment we will not accept your order and we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal.

We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.

Cancellation Policy:

Our customers have the right to cancel an order before a scheduled pickup from our collection yards.  A cancellation request must be given in writing and emailed to: sales@higginscladding.co.uk

Once an order is placed and paid for on our website we act upon it immediately and start the administration and delivery process.  There are various stages your order goes through before leaving our yards and this includes costs incurred in the administration of bank card payments and refunds.

Higgins Cladding Limited will charge a restocking fee of 5% from the product cost of an order if a cancellation request is made. The balance of the refund will then be processed and normally takes 2 – 3 working days to reach the recipients bank account.

Returns Policy:

If you buy a product which we deliver to you, you may cancel your order (or any part of it) within 7 days, for any reason, by emailing us at sales@higginscladding.co.uk or writing to us at Unit 6, Nags Corner, Nayland, Colchester, CO6 4LT to cancel the order (or part of it)

This is subject to the following conditions:

  • The product must be unused
  • Orders which are cut, made to measure or mixed to your requirements will not be exchanged or refunded
  • You will receive a refund of the price paid excluding delivery/collection charges and a 5% restocking fee.
