Terms & conditions
Please ensure that you read our product terms & conditions carefully as they set out the terms under which BlindsUBuy makes the products available to you. You must read and agree with our terms & conditions before buying online from BlindsUBuy.co.uk. When buying goods from our website, you enter an agreement with BlindsUBuy, Victory Works, Northam Road, Birches Head, Stoke-On-Trent, ST1 6DA. The agreement will be concluded once you place the order.
1. Our Products:
a) Descriptions & photography
The products that we sell on BlindsUBuy are either digitally produced or photographed and are accurately displayed on the website. However, due to different types, styles and settings of computer monitors, shading and colour may appear differently to the exact colour. Due to this we strongly advise that you call into one of our regional showrooms (if local) or request a free sample via telephone or email (if available) before placing your order to ensure that you are happy with the colour and quality before you place your order. Whilst every attempt will be made by BlindsUBuy to ensure that the goods sold and delivered match in every respect any sample or description shown or sent to you, any minor or immaterial variation, change in colour or pattern between the sample or description and the goods delivered shall not entitle you to reject the goods nor to claim any compensation for such variation or change.
b) Made to measure products
Made to measure products are custom-made to your exact requirements. Once they are manufactured our products are only suitable to you and your windows and therefore cannot be cancelled or returned. Because of this, it is extremely important that you are sure about the product that you want and also the measurements you provide. We advise that you visit a showroom or request a sample and ensure that you are truly happy before placing an order, BlindsUBuy cannot be held responsible if you dislike the colour or the general quality of the product. We strongly recommend that you double check your order before completing checkout to ensure that the products ordered and measurements provided are correct. This does not affect your statutory rights.
The majority of the goods we sell are made in accordance to your exact measurements. It is your responsibility to take the correct measurements of your window taking into account where you will be fitting the blind, inside or outside of the recess. If you are unsure about any products or how to measure, please call our customer services line for help before ordering or consult the online measuring guide provided on our site. You must check the product details and measurements of the goods before placing your order online or by phone and are also responsible for checking the order via the email confirmation. We cannot accept returns or refund the money if you have given us incorrect measurements as we will be unable to resell the goods as they are bespoke products.
Most of our fabrics are dyed and therefore each batch can vary slightly in shade, much like wallpaper. Due to colour variations between product batches we cannot guarantee shade matching for previous orders, in addition if we send you a sample that may also be slightly different in shade to the eventual order received. Due to the print design of some pattern fabrics it may be that the sample despatched does not show the full range of colours or pattern design, if you are in any doubt as to the precise nature of the fabric you are advised to call our customer services line for further advice.
Please note that fabric is cut by highly skilled professionals who will be as accurate as possible within a variance of +/- 3cm. We will not replace the order if the sizes are within this tolerance limit and you will not be entitled to reject the goods.
