CONFIRMATION OF ORDER AND PRICING
Orders made to the Company have to be confirmed in writing. The Company will not accept liability for errors, omissions or mistakes which occur through consultation or order by telephone, which is not subsequently confirmed in writing. The prices charged on the Website will be the price quoted at the time of order placement. Quotations provided will remain valid for 6 weeks from the first date of the quotation. All quotation prices include VAT if applicable and shipping costs within the UK.
Upon receipt of your written order, the Company will provide you with a proforma invoice that will include details of that order, along with specifications of the items requested. The Company requires that you review the invoice to ensure accuracy prior and confirm this in writing before they proceed. Failure to do this will render any subsequent claims invalid.
Once approved, the proforma invoice will become the agreement laid out between you and the Company for that order only. It will supercede and render obsolete any and all previous correspondence, either verbally or in writing (which includes electronic email) engaged in by you and the Company. This includes negotiations, prior arrangements, understandings, and other agreements that were made prior to the final order agreed to on the proforma invoice. Your acceptance of the proforma invoice becomes your agreement that you accept the contents of the proforma invoice as the full and complete order, entered into by you and the Company, and that you do not expect or require additional items not contained or set out within that proforma invoice, regardless of previous discussions, direct or implied.
If any changes are subsequently requested, we will try to accommodate these but cannot guarantee this. Price and delivery are very likely to change
The drawings, illustrations and other material contained in the Website, catalogues, brochures, or other advertising and marketing material, which are used by the Company to illustrate the goods for sale, should not be considered exact illustrations and should be regarded as a guide to the item only. These images and drawings do not form any part of the contract entered into between you and the Company.
The Company requires a 50% deposit for all orders placed prior to beginning work. The balance for each order shall be due two weeks prior to the dispatch of the goods. All orders made with the Company are payable in full prior to delivery of the goods. Where the Company experiences a delay in receiving your payment, either of the deposit or the balance, they withhold the right to delay the delivery date of your order if necessary.
Payment methods should be by bank transfer (BACS). Cheques are acceptable forms of payment, but will incur an additional clearing time prior to starting manufacture.
We believe that the many traditional skills and techniques used to make the Company products add to the beauty and individuality of each piece. If you require a higher level of uniformity or finish than these techniques may allow, please discuss your requirements with us before confirming your order.
Products made by the Company are created, painted and distressed as applicable, by hand. Wood finish samples are available to you on request, but it should be noted that these are intended as a guide only. Two pieces are never the same and vary considerably in character, gloss and wood tone. While the Company aims to provide as close a match as possible, they do not guarantee an exact match.
The Company also requests that where two or more items are intended for the same room, they are ordered together. This affords more opportunity for getting the colour and shading matched as closely as possible.
Wood samples made available by the Company are valid for 6 months. It is requested that you contact the Company to obtain a new wood finish sample if you intend placing an order after that period. Failure to do so may result in your finished product having a different shade, material type or colour.
While the Company aims to ensure that photography and other images contained on the Website, in the catalogue, or any other material where visual representation of their products is made, are accurate and up to date, variations are possible.
All Company pieces are handmade and painted by hand; and so variations in colour may occur. Where variations in colour, wood finish, material or other natural causes occur, the Company accepts no liability.
Products created by the Company may bear the Barker Moss logo. Any requirement for unbranded products should be discussed with the Company prior to confirming your order.
BESPOKE DESIGNS & REPRODUCTION.
If a client provides the Company with a drawing or an image of a piece of furniture to be reproduced, we will make every attempt to be as accurate as possible when undertaking the task however a perfect reproduction cannot be guaranteed unless we have the item to be reproduced physically in our workshop.
Furthermore, the Company will not be held liable for any reproduction made that contravenes any patents or other trademark or copyright. Establishing permission for any copying or reproduction is the sole responsibility of the client. If made aware, the Company will refuse to accept any orders which contain products with registered patents, trademarks or copyrights.
It is the sole responsibility of the client to inform the Company prior to the order being confirmed if a product specified has any patents, trademarks or copyrights; or if the client has any intention to own the rights of the design provided to Company. By entering the Contract with the Company, the client agrees that the Company can photograph, distribute and sell the finished product without paying any design fees or commission on the products made by the Company.
All quotations provided by the Company are done so on the premise that the designs specified are patent free and will be owned by the Company after production has been completed. Failure to inform the Company of any patents, trademarks or copyrights; or any attempt to claim design rights on pieces already produced and completed by the Company, will be subjected to a 400% surcharge on the price paid on the product in question.
The anticipated lead time will be stated on the proforma invoice. Where you wish to place an order with a time sensitive delivery date, please contact the Company in advance to discuss your requirements. The Company will endeavor to meet your timescale.
The lead time is applicable only once the deposit is paid.
All lead times provided by the Company are offered in good faith. They are not legally binding and do not form part of the contract or guarantee. Furthermore, depending upon the nature of the order, they should be considered approximates only.
All Barker Moss products are carefully checked and packed before being transported. The Company will contact you prior to delivery to advise the anticipated delivery date or time. While the Company will make every effort to accommodate the client’s needs, the Company shall not be liable for delivery dates or times which do not meet client’s requests.
Upon delivery, you must inspect and sign for your order. Signing is accepted as confirmation that you have inspected your order, and that all requested items due for delivery as part of that order are present and in good condition. This very important as carriers will not accept any responsibility for items not inspected. Where a third party is left to sign for the delivery on behalf of the client, the Company shall not be held liable or responsible for any defects subsequently found that would have been found on inspection. In addition, failure to sign the delivery note as requested may render claims made against that order as invalid.
Where you fail to accept delivery, either by missing the date or for any other reason, it is your responsibility to arrange redelivery of your order at additional cost to you. An alternative may be to collect your order from an assigned collection point. The Company will not be held liable for care of orders that have already left their warehouse. It is your responsibility to ensure your items are checked and complete prior to signing for them, including where they are delivered to an assigned collection point.
The product dimensions will be detailed on the proforma invoice. These must be checked and confirmed by the customer as no liability can be accepted for errors by the customer.

All goods provided by the Company are crafted by hand using carefully selected woods. And finished as appropriate to their intended use. The Company accepts no liability for the use of the product in unreasonable conditions and any adverse effect these may have on the product.
The wood used by the Company to build products will continue to change its moisture levels as it responds to climatic changes in its environment. Where it loses moisture, it can shrink, correcting itself as humidity rises again. This is a normal state of fluctuation and is not an issue covered by warranty.
However, the Company believes that if appropriate care is taken our products will give you long lasting satisfaction
The Company provides a skilled bespoke service, and therefore no cancellations can be accepted after manufacture has started, which will be following the statutory 7 day cooling off period.
RISK AND TITLE
The ownership of the products remains with the Company, even after delivery, until they are paid for in full. However, risk for products passes to the client on receipt of the goods. Until a client becomes the full and complete owner of the products, they may not sell or part with possession of the goods. The Company withholds the right to enter any property where the goods are being held, for the purposes of recovering those goods while ownership remains with the Company.
All goods are supplied on condition that the amount of liability in relation to any defects or faults in the condition, quality, fitness for purpose or description of those goods, does not amount to a sum that exceeds the purchase price of the specific goods themselves.
