 6. Warranties

6.1       The Seller warrants that the Goods will at the time of delivery correspond to the description given by the Seller in the confirmation of order.

6.2       The Goods are categorised as decorative objects and it is not recommended that they are used for any other purpose. Marble by its nature does not change in appearance or structure, however, the Seller agrees to fix any unforeseen changes that may arise within 1 year of delivery of the Goods to the Buyer. This excludes any damage resulting from actions by the Buyer, in particular not following the care and maintenance document listed in 6.4.

6.3       As is traditional with marble tables, the table top is considered sufficiently heavy to not require fixing to the metal base. The Buyer should position the table accordingly to ensure minimum disruption to avoid any exposure to excessive force. The Seller does not accept any liability in this area.

6.4       A care and maintenance document will be provided by the Seller upon delivery.

7.3       If the Buyer fails to take delivery of the Goods on the agreed delivery date or, if no specific delivery date has been agreed, when the Goods are ready for despatch, the Seller shall be entitled to store, insure and redeliver the Goods and to charge the Buyer the reasonable costs of so doing.

10. Carriage of Goods

Carriage will be chargeable on all sales. Rate will be dependent on distance of the Buyer’s postcode from the Seller. Most Goods will be delivered either personally by the Seller or by an insured courier specialising in transporting valuable furniture.
