House of Chairs - Terms & Conditions

 


ORDERING

Please note, we custom design and build various metal furniture and steel structures according to your specifications. Collect and bring your designs and together we will create the perfect piece whether it is for your factory, office, your restaurant, bar or for the leisure of your home. Our website contains many in-house pieces as well as some samples for great ideas. Only once we have established and found the perfect product for your requirement, you will be able to receive a quote and not before. Prices of raw materials can change without notification from our suppliers so it is extremely important to get the costings correct. A time frame of 24 to 48 hours is required for a detailed quote to be completed depending on the size of the job. Please complete your detailed contact information under the tab contact us and customer information. This will speed-up the process to finalize your quote. Upon receipt of your mail, a staff member of House Of Chairs will make contact with you to schedule an appointment to discuss your product needs. All our quotes are only valid for 14 days and are subject to stock availability. Prices of raw materials cannot be guaranteed outside of this time period due to unstable costing and lack of increase notifications from suppliers.

 

CUSTOM DESIGN ORDERS

Custom design orders are not standard stock items. The time frame for delivery can take a bit longer due to the fact that specific raw material needs to be ordered and a once off jig needs to be manufactured especially for large quantities. If any work like laser cutting is involved it is out of our hands to commit to a time frame due to a third party. House Of Chairs cannot take any responsibility for delays in custom design orders. Because you deal directly with the manufacturer which is House Of Chairs, we will be directly involved with production and do our utmost best to meet the agreed delivery time lines. Once your design or sample is submitted (the client) you yourself should confer that the sample is correct and it must be signed off to avoid dispute. House Of Chairs cannot be held responsible for any incorrect orders placed. For all custom designed products there will be a design charge, for time spent and for creating a jig.

 

PAYMENTS

House Of Chairs operates on a pre-payment system which allows us to offer competitive pricing as well as to secure the material required for the job. Standard stock items ordered requires full payment up front before dispatching. In the case of large custom design orders House Of Chairs will require a 60% deposit prior to production. This is to secure raw material, prevent unexpected increases as well as guaranteeing our clients competitive prices.
The full balance of the order is due prior to delivery or collection. All products which have been manufactured will remain the property of House Of Chairs until paid in full. If a deposit is delayed by the client for any reason whatsoever, House Of Chairs cannot guarantee to meet the delivery time frame. All delivery charges must be paid in full by the client before dispatching. All payment is to be paid via EFT directly into House Of Chairs bank account and proof of payment must be presented before work will commence or before dispatching.
