Damage Delivery Policy
OutdoorLivingUk invest heavily in packaging, and working with the best couriers to prevent damages, 80% of items are checked before dispatch to ensure we prove the best service possible. However on rare occasions damages do occur.
When items are delivered we require all items to be checked to ensure they have arrived safely. Any damages / faults / missing components must be reported to us within 5 working days of delivery, outside of this time scale we are unable to offer further assistance.
If damage is noticed we require an image of the damage and packaging to be emailed to us, along with your order number.
Items that have sustained minor / cosmetic damage will be subject to compensation (items that do not leak or affect water flow)
Items that have hairline cracks and small leaks will be offered a compensation cost and remedied via a resin repair kit, this is based on imagery provided.
Items that have sustained “major damage” – breakages and leaks, will be subject to replacement items, These items will be ordered in as per the original order and shipped. Components such as Solar Kits and Care kits will not be provided with secondary deliveries.
Items that are being replaced may be subject to collection via OutdoorLivivngUk, these items will need to be placed in original packaging for our collection service.
Customers who have disposed of original packaging prior to informing us of damage may not be subject to any of the above terms, and we may not be able to assist with a damage claim.
Customers with damaged goods who do not wish to have a replacement item will be subject to our unwanted items policy, or a store credit will be issued.
Water Feature Finish and Material
Most of our water features are made from Composite Resin; due to the nature of this material it is to be expected that all resin features will have “minor” discrepancies as each item is hand finished. Item can come with “imperfections” on edges and surfaces. Images are always representative of items.
Stainless Steel Items can sometimes have a "hazing" this occurs during the polising process. - It is to be expected and will not be treated as a fault; this will not be visable during operation of the feature. If you are not happy with the item recieved then this is subjective and can be exchanged via our unwanted items policy.
Stainless Steel Spheres will aways have a centre imprefection, this is where the 2 halves are joined. - Again this is part of the manufacturing process and cannot be avoided. - when the feature is in operation this will not be visiable.
Paint work. Water features are finished with Oil Based paints, over time these will fade due to UV exposure. This is to be expected. – Paint finished will vary between products as all items are hand painted and finished. Painted resin features will generally have small discrepancies, including hairline paint cracks and small chips, and other imperfections.
Paint peeling – over time, exposure to UV rays and usage paint can separate from its resin underlay, this is to be expected given the nature of the material and product usage. – Paint peeling warranty claims will look to be resolved by supply / value of replacement oil paint for the end user to apply. OutdoorLivingUK recommends using a resin sealant / paint sealant on all water features, to be applied by end user. – Small and mirror paint chips will be noted on the order but may not result in any action.
It is the responsability of the receiving customer to arrange sufficient requirements to accept delivery, OutdoorLivingUk, reserves the right to charge £25 per re-delivery attempt(s) that have failed due to customer not being present to accept goods, this will also be deducted from any refunds due to undeliverable items returned back to OutdoorLivingUk. – OutdoorLivingUk reserves the right to leave items “without signature” this will be based on an individual basis, [Item Specific, location specific] – we will always attempt to deliver goods to prevent unnecessary charges being applied. – If you have ordered an item and will not be present for delivery (i.e holidays or days out) we can postpone a delivery until you are present at no extra charge as long as the item has not been dispatched. Items that have already been dispatched can be “postponed” for a fee of £10 per item. – Should an item be delivered without a customer present a photo will be taken, OutdoorLivingUk regard items delivered with photographic evidence as completion of contract, should this item become lost / stolen after this delivery OutdoorLivingUk is exempt from any further obligations.
Items that have been “stolen / lost without signature delivery will require crime number and investigation from police for OutdoorLivingUK to conduct any further action on the matter. – OutdoorLivingUK will defend its position based on Photographic Evidence and GPS driver tracking of goods in line with this policy.
