Ordering and payment
Placing an Order: To place an order, you can do so via the Quick Checkout page. You confirm that all information and details provided by you to us are true and accurate. When you order through the Website you will need to provide us with certain compulsory personal information in order for us to process your order. Please see our Privacy and Cookie Policies for more information on how your personal information will be used.
Acceptance of your order: Please note that completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your offer to purchase products or services from us. Our acceptance of your order will take place only when we despatch the product(s) that you ordered from us. Prior to despatch of the product(s), Charrington’s has the right to decline an order for any reason, including legal and regulatory reasons.
We will notify you by email as soon as possible to acknowledge that we have received and are processing your order. The duration of our contract with you will start from when you order and we take payment and dispatch the products, until the last day of your right to cancel.
If the fulfilment of an order (or any aspect of it) would be illegal or unlawful, including by reason of breach of export controls or sanctions rules, Charrington’s has the right to stop or cease to fulfil the order at any time, including after despatch of products and/or notification to you that the order has been received and is being processed. You acknowledge that Charrington’s shall incur no liability in such circumstances.
Substitution: If we cannot supply you with the product you ordered, we will not process your order and inform you of this in writing (including email). If you have already paid for the product, we will offer you the opportunity to choose between a suitable alternative (of equal or greater quality or value suggested by us) or give you a full refund as soon as reasonably possible. Any products we supply to you will be of satisfactory quality. If we deliver a product to you that is not of satisfactory quality, you can contact us for a replacement or, where this is not possible, for a refund. This may be in full or in part as appropriate.
Payment details: During the checkout process, you will be asked to enter your payment details. By completing your payment details you confirm that the credit or debit card being used is yours. All fields indicated as compulsory must be completed. Please note that we may collect and store your information, using an encrypted secure payment mechanism and will only use your information in accordance with our Privacy and Cookie Policies.
Card payments: All card payments are subject to authorisation by your card issuer. We take full payment immediately for all products. All products ordered will remain the property of Charrington’s until we have delivered the products to the address specified by you (incorporating any specific instructions from you e.g. to leave with a neighbour or leave behind garden gate) or they have been collected from Cryals Farm.
If your payment is not received and you have already received the products you ordered from us, you must pay for or return those products to us in accordance with our reasonable return instructions and in the same condition that you received them at your own expense. If you do not do this within 30 days of the date on which we cancel your order, we may collect or arrange for collection of the products at your expense. We reserve the right to charge you for any and all damage to (or other adverse interference with) any products that are the subject of an unpaid order.
