Delivery & Returns
Delivery and returns
The standard rate of delivery is £4.95 regardless of how many items are sent to the same address. However heavy or larger items are charged at £9.95. Parcels are sent by Royal Mail 1st class recorded delivery or Parcelforce 48 hour service. All delivery charges are determined at placement of order.
We try to dispatch all stock items within 3 working days of receipt of order, but please allow up to 7 working days for said stock items to arrive. Please note that delivery estimates are just that, estimates and with some ex-stock items longer delays may have to be accepted. For this reason it is important that you make yourself aware of any possible delivery delays before placing an order. Initial estimates can be found on product pages, these will be updated on your order confirmation. You will be notified by e-mail once your goods have been dispatched. For any delivery to a country outside of mainland Britain please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for transportation quotes and details. Goods delivered to certain overseas countries may be subject to import duties and taxes, payable when the goods reach their destination. The responsibility and cost of such customs and duties rests solely with you the customer. Responsibility for goods is transferred to the customer on the first delivery attempt and the customer must make themselves available to receive them. If for some reason the customer is unable to take delivery then they can arrange a second attempt or collect the goods from a designated addressee or courier depot. If the customer fails to cooperate with the agreed delivery attempts and the goods are returned to us we may, at our discretion, cancel the order and charge 10% of the total cost of the order to the customer to cover return, storage and insurance.
Deliveries do not include unpacking, assembly or installation unless otherwise stated.
Returns and refunds
Made-to-order, damaged, defective or different.
Should a made-to-order item be received damaged, defective or differ from specification then, after inspection by rume, a full refund or replacement will be arranged at no cost to the client. However this is dependent on the client taking the following action:
Unpack and inspect your purchases immediately upon receipt as no claim for replacement due to delivery damage, defect or specification can be made after 3 days.
Any claim regarding a damaged, defective or incorrectly specified item must be made at once by phone or email to establish a timeline. Once an initial log has been recorded it must followed up by a written claim.
The cost of returning the item(s) will be the client’s responsibility, under most circumstances the item will have to be insured for transit. Once rume has received the item and verified the nature of the complaint any costs incurred by the client will be refunded.
Where items to be returned are large or require special handling (as determined by rume) we reserve the right to nominate a specific furniture handler and to pass the cost of transport onto the client. Once rume has received the item and verified the nature of the complaint any costs incurred by the client will be refunded. However if the client accepts and then fails to meet a returns collection date he will be charged again for the next and every subsequent attempt.
Whenever a made-to-order product is returned by a client it must be adequately packed in the original packaging to prevent damage.
