3.2 We will advise you at the time of order of approximate delivery lead-times and stock availability. Our general guidelines are that delivery will happen within 7-50 working days of placing your order but these lead times could vary if your order requires bespoke cutting service, oiling etc. Our delivery service includes a courtesy call the day before your delivery is due and if necessary a courtesy call from the driver on the day. It is very important that we speak to you prior to delivery in order to confirm the arrangements therefore providing your best contact number is essential.
3.3 Worktop deliveries are made by one man only Due to insurance guidelines and health and safety regulations all deliveries are made to the nearest ground floor access point. The customer agrees to ensure that someone competent and able bodied will be available to help with the unloading of the goods as these can be extremely heavy; it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure the designated helper is fit / suitably strong to help with the delivery. Special requests can occasionally be accommodated, please contact us to request further information. As deliveries can be made by a large van, it is assumed that the delivery address will be accessible. If there is likely to be a problem, e.g. the road is subject to a vehicle weight or width limit or any other restrictions apply please inform us at the time of order.

Please inspect your goods immediately upon delivery in the presence of the delivery driver.

Goods refused on delivery that are found to be undamaged on return to us will incur a return charge. 3.6 No liability can be accepted for costs or losses caused by delayed deliveries. Although we always aim to deliver the goods within the agreed time frame occasionally due to matters out of our control deliveries could take slightly longer than anticipated. In such circumstances you will always be kept informed of the progress of your delivery and we guarantee that delivery will always happen within an acceptable time limit. However we strongly advise all clients against booking of tradesmen for installations or removing existing fixtures and fittings until goods have been received in a satisfactory condition. 3.7 After Delivery Wood is a natural product that can be affected by heat and humidity. In order to avoid bowing or warping of the worktops please read our Storage Guide below. We strongly advise you to read our 2 guides on our “Worktop Care and Maintenance” page where you will find further advice and some very useful tips on worktop aftercare. Storage: We recommend that all worktops are oiled immediately upon receipt. Installation should be carried out as soon as possible after delivery. However if storage is necessary the worktops must be laid flat and fully supported in their original packaging. They must be stored indoors (not in garages or outbuildings), away from extreme heat (radiators etc) and far away from any recently plastered areas. Do not store worktops vertically or on edges. Your worktops are dispatched in sound condition and appropriate packaging it is your responsibility to store and maintain worktops correctly.

The Trading Terms of Cricklewood Kitchens
The Trading Terms of Cricklewood Kitchens
In the terms below, Cricklewood Kitchens is called “The Company” and the other contracting party is called “The Customer”.
1. The Company retains full control of the production and installation of the kitchen. The Customer agrees that the Company may make minor modifications to the specifications for the materials and to the design of the installation at its discretion. The Company need not tell the Customer that it has done this. If a major modification is necessary, the Company will inform the Customer and agree it with them.
2. If for any reason beyond the Company’s reasonable control, the Company is unable to supply a particular item of cabinetry or a particular appliance the Company will notify the Customer. With the agreement of the Customer the Company will replace it with an item of at least equal quality and value.
3. The Company will do all that it reasonably can to meet the date given for delivery and/or installation. In the case of unforeseen circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Company, the Company may not be able to do so. In such circumstances the Company will contact the Customer and agree an alternative date. Installation dates given are always “week commencing”.
4. The Customer will also do all that he/she reasonable can, to enable delivery and/or installation to take place on the given date. In the case of unforeseen circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Customer, the Customer may not be able to do so. In such circumstances the Customer will contact the Company and agree an alternative date.
5. The Customer agrees that the structure, condition and suitability of the premises for the installation are the Customer’s responsibility. If at any time the installation is, for a structural or technical difficulty, impractical, the Company may terminate the contract. If the Company terminates the contract under these conditions then any deposit paid will be refunded. However, the Company will not make to the Customer any payment for any loss the Customer may suffer.
6. The company does all it reasonably can to ensure the price quoted by its agent at the time of the contract is correct. It is recognised that the kitchen is a made to measure product. The Company will normally arrange for a technical surveyor to visit the Customer’s premises for the purpose of measurement and survey of premises, plumbing, drainage and other services. If, following such a survey, it becomes apparent that the installation has been underpriced for a technical reason beyond the reasonable expectation of the agent, then the Company will forewith inform the Customer and both parties will attempt to agree a revised price for the installation. In the event that a new price cannot be agreed then either party is entitled to terminate the contract whereupon any monies will be repaid in full. In circumstances where the incorrect pricing has resulted from an error in information provided by the Customer to the Company with regard to the premises where the kitchen is to be installed, and in particular to the services and drainage available to that premises, and termination of the contract has occurred in accordance with the provisions of this clause, then the Company will not make to the Customer any further payment for any loss the Customer may suffer. However, any deposit paid by the Customer will be repaid in full.
7. Where the Company has agreed to supply only (ie not install) the cabinetry and/or appliances, the company guarantees that the quality of the cabinetry and/or appliances will be to a satisfactory standard. The Company is not responsible for the installation of the cabinetry and/or appliances. Any installation of the cabinetry and/or appliances is the sole responsibility of the Customer. The Company shall not be responsible for any damage or loss in respect of the cabinetry supplied by the Company arising out of or associated with any such installation of the cabinetry and/or appliances by the Customer.
8. All appliances and worktops are supplied subject to any guarantees and after-sales services that are offered by the manufacturers themselves, or where appropriate subject to the terms of any extended warranty scheme.
9. The customer agrees to give access to the premises for the purposes of delivery and/or installation or subsequent visits that may be necessary for the completion of the installation.
10. The Customer agrees that there will be an available supply of water, gas and electricity on the premises for the purpose of carrying out the installation and such services will be supplied at no cost to the Company.
11. The Customer is advised and accepts that the installation may cause damage to decoration. It is anticipated that the kitchen will require redecoration following completion of the installation. This will be the Customer’s responsibility and is not included in the price unless specifically set out otherwise overleaf. For the avoidance of doubt this provision does not exclude the Company’s responsibility for any damages which are beyond what is reasonably commensurate with the fitting of the kitchen in the usual way (for example, damage to other areas of the premises where kitchen cabinetry/appliances are not being fitted).
12. The Customer fully accepts and understands that in signing this contract that they are bound to this purchase. However, should the Company agree to cancel this contract (at the Customer’s request) then the Customer fully understands and accepts that they would forfeit any/all deposit monies paid.
13. On delivery or collection, the risk of any loss or damage to the cabinetry and/or appliances becomes that of the Customer.
14. Payment of the balance shall be made on delivery of the cabinetry and/or appliances. The Customer will not legally own the cabinetry and/or appliances until the balance of payment is made (by cleared funds) by the Customer to the Company. The goods do not become the Customer’s until the Customer has paid for them in full and, until such time, the Customer shall keep the goods in good repair, condition and properly protected and insured. The goods are not warranted/guaranteed until payment is received in full.
15. The Company will attempt to complete the installation (when applicable) within five weeks of the first day of commencement. This is a voluntary time-scale offered by the Company in all good faith. The Customer fully accepts however that time is not of the essence regarding either delivery or completion of the installation.
16. Although the company may be prepared to agree to certain changes to the original terms of the contract, this will be on the understanding that it does not infringe on the Company’s full rights under the contract and that it does not prevent the Company from exercising those rights in the future. No contractual changes shall be valid unless authorised by a Partner of the Company.
17. The Company and the Customer agree that those terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the Law of England and they further agree that the English Courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction.
18. Additional items ordered by the Customer's will be treated as a separate order and may occur additional carriage/delivery charges and will be invoiced separately. Completion dates may be affected by additional orders and The Company will not be liable for any loss or damages due to this.
19. Timescales are estimates and rely on third parties, therefore The Company will not be responsible for any loss or damages for lost earnings to any persons or Trades affected.
20. By dealing with The Company you are agreeing to all our Terms & Conditions and Trading Terms.
