We reserve the right to refuse the 7 day no quibble guarantees for any single item bought for a £1000 or more, products that have been installed/assembled on site or products that have been supplied as a custom product. A custom product can be defined as an item that is different in size, design, colour or logo to the standard product or has been specifically made to a customer’s requirements.

All products are guaranteed against manufacturing defects for 12 months from date of invoice. If a problem occurs you need to first make a claim by e-mail or fax.

Following inspection we will make the customer aware of our findings and if the products prove to have a manufacturing defect, we will replace free of charge. This guarantee does not include any consequential costs which may arise out of a manufacturing fault.
