Terms and Condition

General
As a potential customer of Ruben J Trading Ltd T/A Low Cost Furniture Direct, we want you to be familiar with our terms and conditions of sale. When you access our website and/or place an order via this website or via phone you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions specified. Our aim is to have very satisfied customers that return to and purchase from our website regularly.

Accuracy of Content
Low Cost Furniture Direct has taken every care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular to ensure that prices quoted are correct at time of publishing and all products have been fairly described. However, orders will only be accepted if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or their prices as advertised on this website. All prices are displayed inclusive of VAT.

Delivery
We deliver nationwide to mainland Ireland, Northern Ireland and UK. There is an estimated delivery time beside each product but please note that as much as we try to get orders out within the estimated time sometimes products can take a little longer.

Processing Your Order & Delivery
Once you have placed an order with us, you will receive a receipt of the purchase made to the email that you have provided. Below each product it will state the approximate length of time until delivery, but on rare occasions your furniture may be delayed through circumstances beyond our control.

If you have chosen that you want your product to be assembled by us, delivery may take a few days longer than the estimated time given. We have set assembly routes that are carried out each week rotating from each province.

We will, of course, make every effort to keep you informed and get your furniture delivered to you as soon as possible.

Your driver will contact you, 24-48 hours in advance, on the telephone numbers provided. If you cannot be at home to accept your delivery simply arrange for another adult to accept the delivery on your behalf. The appointed person must be available at the address to carefully check the product sign and acknowledge receipt of goods. If nobody is home on the day of delivery all goods must be returned to the warehouse. The delivery team will not leave goods unattended in a “safe place” i.e. porch or side of house. A re-delivery charge will apply should you wish to have the goods delivered on another day.

Assembly
We provide a full assembly service for an extra charge. Every item will have a different assembly charge as it depends on the product itself and the time that must be spent on assembling the product(s). The charge for assembly can be found on the right beside each item of furniture.

Preparing for your furniture to be delivered
Ensure well in advance that any Furniture/Bedding items you have ordered will fit into the room intended, paying particular care to the dimension of the product(s) ordered. Check all required access routes are free of clutter and that there is sufficient access and parking for a large delivery truck to safely reach the delivery address. Don’t forget to inform us of any lifts or elevators, stairwells, passages, corridors and landings that your product(s) must pass through.
Our drivers/assembly team will only leave your furniture to the inside of the door if you have not specified that you wanted assembly. It is our policy that only furniture that assembly has been paid for will be moved into the room that you intend your furniture to be assembled in.
Please be aware that the delivery team will not attempt to deliver your furniture if there are health and safety issues or where damage to your home may occur. They will not remove doors and/or windows. Fees for re-delivery or cancellation will apply.

Payment
We have a number of ways you can pay:
• Pay online using PayPal which accepts all major credit and debit cards. You do not need a PayPal account to pay online.
• Process you order online then forward a cheque or bankers draft to us. Your order will not be confirmed and processed until payment is received and cleared.

You may examine products as you would in a shop but you must not have used or assembled / installed them. Whilst the goods are in your possession you must take reasonable care of them.

Due to their intimate nature, all mattresses will be delivered sealed in clear plastic wrapping that will allow for inspection. Any mattresses that have been unsealed will be deemed as having been used. Therefore they cannot be returned for any reason other than because they are not as described.

Sofas that are personally made cannot be returned as these are made from scratch. The only way a sofa that is personally made can be returned is if the sofa is damaged on delivery.

If you would like to return your items to us you can do so or you can receive free collection from one of our vans whenever they will be in your area next.
