Purchasing, Returns and Cancellations
A purchase made through www.dmsflooringsupplies.co.uk or on the telephone, constitutes a ‘Distance Sale’ which is subject to The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (as amended 2005) (The Regulations). Your normal statutory rights also still apply.

As such, any unwanted item wanting to be returned will be subject to a 25% handling charge. All returned goods must be wrapped or packaged as appropriate. You have the right to cancel your order up to the date of delivery and also within the 14 days after delivery for unwanted goods, and 30 days for faulty or damaged goods (such 14/30 days begin the day after the goods have been delivered). Please note however that these rights do not apply if the goods you order are made specifically to your specifications. This includes floor coverings and products, cut to your specific order size.

Upon delivery you must make sure that the goods you have received are the goods that you ordered and in satisfactory condition.

If the delivery is incorrect, the goods are faulty or if you wish to exercise your right to return the goods within 14 days (30 days for faulty goods), under the Regulations, then you should not cut into, alter or install the goods.
