Sale or Return
Goods are NOT sold on a ‘sale or return’ basis. If there is a change of mind on your end or customers end; we will not accept a return as we are not liable for this. Drop-ship customers must understand their legal obligation before placing an order with Artisan Furniture. The 14 days legal cooling off period is NOT applicable on us because we are a trade only website and any such obligations must be met & fulfilled between the trade account holder & their end user / customer. We have no responsibility or liability whatsoever regarding the legal 14 days cooling off period as our agreement is set out between Seller (Artisan Furniture) and Buyer (valid trade account holder) and doesn’t cover the end user, if applicable.
In the unlikely event of your customer refusing to accept the delivery; the onus to accept the product lies with the trade account holder including wasted delivery as well as alternative delivery location. Global Vision Direct Ltd will not accept the liability even if the product is returned back to us as the product is then graded as ‘junk’ therefore fetching us a nominal residual value.
The Consumer Rights Act 2015 is NOT applicable to us, Artisan Furniture, due to the fact that we only work on a Business to Business basis. This law applies to consumers only, which you are held liable for as a Trade Account holder. For more details regarding this, please refer to our Terms and Conditions.
- We do not accept cancellations, refunds or replacements of bespoke products if the product is already under production or on its way.
- We only accept a replacement or a refund in the rare event of the item arriving damaged. Followed by sufficient evidence of the damage we will then arrange a collection and a replacement/refund.
- Once executed; back orders are treated like normal ‘standard’ orders and therefore the same Standard Operating Procedure and returns policy is applicable.
100% of our products are hand-crafted individually. Further most of our products are hand-made from solid wood hence variation in size, color, finish, fabric (for upholstered goods), texture, natural grain pattern, knots, movement of timber etc are an integral part of the way products are naturally made & promoted. We strongly recommend you to ensure that you have made yourself fully aware about the nature of our offered hand-made solid wood products to avoid any disenchantment at a later stage. We regret, will NOT treat any of the above variations as defect, as these are natural occurrences.
