Hardwood Timber Sales Ltd shall sell and the buyer shall purchase the goods in accordance with any written, electronic or verbal order of the buyer which is accepted by the seller, subject in any case to these conditions, which shall govern the contract to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions subject to which any such quotation is accepted or purported to be accepted, or any such order is made or is purported to be made, by the buyer.

Any variation of these conditions (including any special terms and conditions agreed between the parties) shall be inapplicable unless agreed in writing by the seller, acting by its Managing Director or some other person authorised in writing by him. 

Any typographical or clerical or other error or omission in any sales literature, quotation, price list, acceptance of offer, invoice or other document or information issued by the seller shall be subject to correction without any liability on the part of the seller.

If any provision of these conditions is adjudged invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part the validity of the other provisions of these conditions and the remainder of those provisions in question shall not be affected. Your statutory rights are not affected.  


Although the seller makes every effort to ensure that published prices and quotes are as accurate as possible the seller reserves the right to refuse the sale or mis-priced or mis-quoted goods. 

In the case of all products sold, unless the seller expressly provides otherwise the price payable by the buyer for each delivery shall be the seller’s current price at the date of despatch.

The seller reserves the right by giving notice to the buyer at any time before delivery to increase the price of the product/products to reflect any increase in the cost to the seller which is due to any factor beyond the control of the seller.

Payment terms:

Where the buyer is placing an order from stock payment will need to be made prior to order confirmation and despatch. 

Payment Method:

Payment is accepted by Paypal, debit & credit card payment only.

Stock & Quantities:

The seller will always supply timber to the nearest available stock length. Stock lengths can therefore vary.

The seller will always select stock lengths that match the buyer’s requirements closely but in some circumstances some extra may be supplied and charged for, particularly in the even of short lengths being required. 


The supplier uses various method of delivery when delivering goods, these include the use of its own vehicles and independent carrier services. 

In all cases the goods will be delivered to the nominated address specified at time of purchase. 

It will be the responsibility of the buyer to ensure that there is adequate labour when transferring goods unloaded from delivering vehicle. 

Such unloading will be kerbside only and the supplier or carrier will not be responsible for any further movement. 

Deliveries will be made between 8:00am and 6:30pm. The seller is unable to give an estimated delivery time as all deliveries are at the courier’s discretion. The couriers used by the seller do not offer a pre-delivery phone call service and can not, therefore, contact the buyer directly. 

All of our items are bespoke & made to order and we therefore estimate a delivery period of 10 to 14 days. 

Any delivery date or delivery times are for guidance only and the supplier shall not be responsible for any cost incurred by the buyer in the event of a late delivery. Should the buyer be unavailable to accept the goods at the time of delivery then the buyer shall bear the cost of any redelivery.  

Returns & Cancellation:

Where the buyer has received his order and no longer requires all or part of the order then this may be returned at the discretion of the seller.

The buyer must examine all goods on delivery in case any damage has occurred in transit. 

The driver should be notified immediately of any problems and the delivery note should be signed accordingly.  

The seller cannot guarantee to replace or repair items which have been signed for in good condition or 'unchecked' and are later found to be damaged. This does not affect the buyer’s statutory rights. 

Where the buyer has used or installed the goods then this shall be taken as evidence that the buyer has accepted the goods and are in perfect condition.

The seller will not accept any liability for any goods that have been repaired before the seller has been given the opportunity to inspect them or to give authority for repair work to be carried out or in cases where non company components have been used.
