INTRODUCTION

We are The Textured Room, a trading company headquartered in Lewes, East Sussex. Your use of this website and any order you place through this website are subject to the following terms of business.

 

1. SALE OF GOODS

  1. These terms and your order comprise the agreement between you and us for the sale of the goods. Any amendments that agreement must be formally confirmed in writing. You need to ensure you are happy with these terms before you submit your order because our agreement will be governed by the terms once a contract comes into force between us.
  2. Any photographs or descriptions we use on our website are used exclusively to provide you with an approximate idea of the item we are selling, and do not form part of the contract between you and us for the sale of the goods.
  3. Your order is an offer by you to enter into a legally binding contract that we may accept or decline at our discretion.
  4. These terms shall become binding on both parties when we issue you with confirmation of purchase at which point we shall both enter into a contract.
  5. You may cancel your order in accordance with your rights under UK law.
  6. We have the right to revise and amend these terms from time to time. You will be subject to the terms in force at the time that you order the goods from us.

 

2. THE GOODS

  1. We always try to describe all items as fully and accurately as possible, to the best of our knowledge, providing as much history, age and detail as we know, alongside a full description of any notable defects or faults. However, it should be noted that the items that we are selling are vintage or antique so in most cases items may have some age-related wear and tear or other issues normally associated with years of use or age which form a part of the appearance and nature of a vintage item. Small signs of wear are normal and appropriate to the items’ authenticity. By placing an order, you are deemed to acknowledge the vintage nature of the goods we are selling.
  2. We will take all reasonable steps to pack the goods properly and to ensure that you receive your order in good condition.
  3. We shall not be liable for any defect in the goods arising from wear and tear, wilful damage, accident and/or negligence by you or any third party.

 

3. HEALTH AND SAFETY

  1. The goods we sell are genuine and original products that were manufactured before today’s health and safety standards. We do not guarantee or imply any guarantee of compliance with health and safety standards or fitness for any purpose. All original vintage products are clearly marked as such in the product description with an approximate date of manufacture.
  2. For electrical items in particular, while they may be perfectly safe for use, vintage electrical goods are unlikely to meet current UK standards that can change from time to time. We recommend that all electrical goods are inspected, tested, certified and installed by a qualified electrician who can ensure that the items and their use are protected by an RCD. We will not be liable for any loss, injury or death caused by electrical goods that have not been inspected, tested and certified by a qualified electrician.

 

4. DELIVERY

  1. Collection: All items are available for inspection and/or collection from our site just outside Lewes, East Sussex.
  2. Delivery: delivery arrangement are set out in the ‘Delivery’ section of this website. However, if you arrange your own delivery, and even if we help you with this, you will need to pay the courier or shippers direct and communicate directly with them once the goods have left our site. You will need to take out your own insurance if you consider appropriate for all items sent by us through Parcelforce or Royal Mail because neither operator offers cover that includes antiques, furniture or art – these are excluded. Items picked up by your own delivery companies or sent by third party delivery services recommended by us are not covered by us in terms of insurance. Delivery agents should all have their own insurance options and you will need to confirm this with them.
  3. We are happy for you to arrange collection of items personally.  Unless we have agreed otherwise, orders not collected within three weeks will incur storage fees at a rate of £7 per week.  The same fees will be applied where third party delivery is delayed, unless there has been prior agreement to the contrary.
  4. For smaller items where we arrange delivery, we will aim to ship your order within five working days of it being placed. Where this is not possible, we will liaise with you and arrange alternative dates.
  5. If you have not taken delivery of the goods within six weeks of our notifying you that they are ready, we may, after giving you reasonable prior notice in writing, resell or otherwise dispose of part or all of the goods and, after deducting reasonable storage and selling costs, pay you for any excess over the price of the goods or charge you for any shortfall below their price.

 

5. RETURNS

  1. In the unlikely event that the goods delivered do not conform to these terms and the order, please let us know as soon as possible after receipt.
  2. Freight items delivered via third party delivery services must be checked thoroughly and approved by you when you take receipt of them and any problems notified to the driver at the time of delivery.
  3. Subject as set out herein, we may ask you to return the goods to us within 14 days and once we have checked that the goods are faulty, we may:
    • provide you with a full or partial refund (including shipping costs); or
    • replace the goods; or
    • repair the goods.
  1. These terms will apply to any repaired or replacement goods we supply to you.
  2. It is your right to cancel your order any time from placing the order until seven 7 working days from the day after delivery. If such cancellation is made, we will not be responsible for your costs in returning unwanted goods.
  3. All returns should be notified to us before sending and unwanted goods must be returned within 14 days of delivery. Goods must be returned in the same condition they were sent out and arrangements for delivery of returns must be notified to us.
