Ordering products from us via the Website

This is how a legally binding contract for the purchase of products via the Website (the Online Contract) is made between you and us:

  2. When you place your order at the end of the online checkout process (i.e. when you click to submit payment), we will acknowledge it by email and, in some circumstances, text message. This acknowledgement does not mean that your order has been accepted by us.
  3. We may contact you via the information you provided to us to say that we do not accept your order. This is typically for the following reasons:
    • the products are unavailable;
    • we cannot authorise your payment;
    • you are not allowed to buy the products from us;
    • we are not allowed to sell the products to you;
    • you have ordered too many products; or
    • there has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the products.
  4. We will only accept your order when we email you to confirm acceptance (the Confirmation Email). At this point the Online Contract is legally binding and we will dispatch the products that you have ordered to you.

We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any products that we offer.

Placing a Bespoke Order

  2. We make no commitment to being able to meet any requests to manufacture Custom Products, however if we do we will discuss and agree the relevant terms with you including minimum order quantities, turnaround time, sample fees and deposits.
  3. Such Custom Products will then be dealt with as a Bespoke Order except that there is no right to cancel an order for Custom Products and there are no refunds for any Custom Products.

Returns and Refunds

Right to cancel

You have the right to cancel the Online Contract or Bespoke Contract within 14 days without giving any reason (the Cancellation Period).  You do not have the right to cancel any orders for Custom Products.

The Cancellation Period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire physical possession of the products. This applies regardless of whether you acquire the products directly or indirectly via someone else (apart from our carrier).  

To use your right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel the Online Contract or Bespoke Contract by a clear statement using trade@plankhardware.com. An example of this cancellation request is available here. You must tell us that you would like to use your right to cancel before the Cancellation Period has expired.

Effects of cancellation

If you cancel the Online Contract or Bespoke Contract, we will refund you all payments received from you, including the costs of standard delivery. If you chose a more expensive type of delivery, we will not refund the difference between standard delivery and the more expensive type of delivery.

We may make a deduction from this refund for any reduction in the value of the products we supplied to you if the reduction is due to unnecessary handling by you.

Unless we have advised you otherwise, you are required to return any products received from us following cancellation.

If you’re a UK-based customer and your parcel is under 20kg, simply visit our online returns portal here.

If you are an international customer, or if your parcel is over 20kg, please get in touch using trade@plankhardware.com.

You must ensure that all products returned to us are well packaged, in the original packaging where possible, so that they arrive in original condition.

We are unable to accept returns on Custom Products.

We will make the refund as soon as possible and not later than 14 days after the day we received the returned products from you.

Unless you have expressly agreed otherwise, we will make the refunds using the same payment method that you used for the initial transaction.

Delivery

For local deliveries in the UK, we use Royal Mail and DPD to deliver our products. For international deliveries, in most instances DPD will pass this to a partner courier once the parcel lands in the destination country. For information on delivery options and costs, please visit our Delivery & Returns page.

For purchases made via the Website,  you will be given available delivery options to choose from  during the online checkout process. For Bespoke Orders, we will discuss delivery options with you at the time of agreeing the terms of the Bespoke Order.  We reserve the right to deliver any Bespoke Orders or Custom Products in instalments.

The estimated date for delivery of the products is set out in the Confirmation Email or the Bespoke Order Email (as applicable). If something happens which is outside of our control and affects the estimated date of delivery, we will provide you with a revised estimated date for delivery. We will not be liable for failure to deliver caused by an event outside our control or because you failed to provide adequate delivery instructions.  If we can’t supply certain products, we will contact you to let you know as soon as possible and, if a payment has already been made, refund you for the products we cannot supply.

Delivery will take place at the address specified by you when you placed your order with us and as confirmed in the Confirmation Email or Bespoke Order Email (as applicable).

Unless you and we agree otherwise, if we cannot deliver an Online Order within 30 days of the date of your Confirmation Email, we will let you know, cancel your order and give you a refund.

If nobody is available to take delivery, please contact us using trade@plankhardware.com

You are responsible for the products once they have been delivered to the address specified by you when you placed your order with us. In other words, the risk in the products passes to you when you take, or a third party notified by you takes, possession of the products.

If your shipping address is outside the UK, taxes and duties may apply. We will ship on a Delivered At Place basis, which means that we will cover the cost of your shipment arriving in your destination country but will not cover any taxes or duties. Your local customs authorities will contact you in order to collect a payment and clear the parcel for delivery to you. Note that if you do not make the payment, the parcel may become delayed or returned to the UK.

Fully inclusive shipping can be arranged, please be aware that this will be an additional cost. Contact us on trade@plankhardware.com if you would like a quote.

If you would like to arrange your own courier to collect the products from us and transport them to your premises, please let us know before placing your order so that we can prepare and hold the products for you.

Please contact us at [trade@plankhardware.com] if you have any questions about the products that we have provided to you.

Prices and Payment

The prices of the products will be as quoted on the Website at the time you submit your Online Order or as set out in the Bespoke Order.

For customers in the UK, all prices are in pounds sterling (£)(GBP) and include VAT at the applicable rate, but exclude delivery charges.

For customers outside the UK, we may offer the opportunity for payment in the relevant local currency. We are not obliged to offer this facility. If we do so, the relevant cost and taxes will be indicated to such customers prior to check out. 

For information on delivery options and costs, visit our Delivery & Returns page.

We sell a large number of products on our Website. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the products on our Website may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the products at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. If we mistakenly accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may cancel supply of the products and refund you any sums you have paid.

We also accept payment via Klarna – see later in the Terms for details. All payments by credit card or debit card need to be authorised by the relevant card issuer. The card issuer may also need to use extra security steps to verify your identity.

Your payment method will be charged when the products are purchased.

If your payment is not received by us and you have already received products, you must:

  1. pay for such products as soon as possible and in any case within 14 days; or
  2. return the products to us as soon as possible and in any case within 30 days. In this situation, you must keep the products in your possession, take reasonable care of them and not use them before you return them to us.
