Delivery of Goods
Next day delivery option is for orders placed before 2pm. *(excluding weekends)
The delivery of goods to you is deemed to be a separate contract for services, distinct from your contract to purchase the goods. Delivery may be affected in one or more ways.
The delivery drivers are not insured to take their vehicles on roads other than public highways. If you live in a remote location and your home is not on a public road, e.g. if you live at the end of a farm track, then the driver will deliver the goods to the end of the public road only. You accept this when placing your order and if you refuse the delivery because of the driver cannot drop at your door then you will be charged the actual delivery costs and collection fees. (This will apply to large, bulky item orders arriving on pallets. Smaller parcels can be usually delivered on foot by the driver.)

Delivery dates are approximate and no liability whatsoever is accepted in respect of late deliveries.

In certain circumstances where large bulky items are being ordered for delivery to very remote locations (such as Scottish Islands) there may be an additional carriage charge. If your order falls into this category then you will be notified of the extra cost and given the option of accepting the extra charge or cancelling your order.

Without prejudice to the statutory rights afforded to consumers under English law, Romford Tools accepts no liability for any failure to ship products where this results from its inability to do so resulting from acts of god, civil commotion, riots, flood, drought, fire, legislation or other factors outside it's control, or its decision on reasonable grounds not to do so for reasons of suspicion of credit card fraud or similar.

Checking Deliveries for Shortages

You agree to examine the delivery and report any missing items within 48 hours of delivery. We will not accept liability for any shortages if they are not reported within this period.

Checking Goods for Carrier Damage

For small item deliveries that arrive with carriers you agree to open all boxes and thoroughly check the goods for damage as soon as possible and notify us of any damage within 48 hours of the delivery. If the package looks damaged then sign the paperwork with the word "damaged". If we are not notified of damage within 48 hours we are unable to claim from either the manufacturer or the carrier. You agree to pay us in full for any losses we suffer as a result of your failure to notify us within 48 hours.

If someone else is signing for the goods on your behalf you agree to advise them that the goods must be checked and you accept full responsibility for any loss or damage if they sign on your behalf and fail to check. You agree to indemnify us in full for any losses we suffer as a result of you accepting goods and signing a delivery note without checking the goods for carrier damage.
