We aim for delivery to be made by courier within 4 working days but however please allow up to 10 working days during busy periods. You will be required to provide the courier with a signature upon delivery. Should you be unable to sign at the time of delivery, the courier will provide you with a card allowing you to re-arrange delivery or collect the product from your local depot. Should you fail to sign for the product, resulting in it being returned to us, you will be liable to pay a £30 administration fee plus the additional courier costs incurred in re-shipping the product.
The third party courier we use offers a kerbside delivery. They are not insured to enter properties under any circumstances. We cannot be held responsible for damage to the property caused by the courier.
Should the product arrive visibly damaged, delivery should be refused with the delivery docket being marked as 'damaged'. The parcels should be opened upon receipt to ensure the goods are as you ordered. You should also contact us straight away and inform us of the damage so that we can arrange replacements for you. Damage must be reported within 24 hours of the delivery being made. We cannot be held responsible for any damages reported after this time frame.
Please note: we refer to 'damage' as the product being in completely unusable condition. When fitting our products, they need to be cut and mitred to fit in almost every case. Damage to the very ends of the products will not warrant a replacement / refund if we feel the product is still fit for use. Light marks that will not be visible once fitted / finished will also not warrant a replacement / refund.
We may make partial shipments of your order at our discretion in the event that part of your order is completed early. In the event of a late delivery, we are unable to provide compensation. We advise you not to book anybody to work with the goods until you have received them. All items are sent on a 24 hour delivery service and it is up to the courier to deliver the items within this time frame. We cannot be held responsible for the courier failing to deliver within the specified time.
Minimum Order Value
Due to increased delivery costs, we can no longer accept any orders under the value of £25 + VAT (£30 including VAT).

Termination of Agreements and Refunds Policy
Both the Client and ourselves have the right to terminate any Agreement for any reason, including the ending of services that are already underway. Should you choose to terminate the sales contract prior to receiving your goods, but after the 24 hour cancellation period, you will be charged a reasonable fee for the work already performed on your order, as well as a reasonable administration fee. Any remaining funds will be refunded to you.
Since our products are custom made to specification, the Distance Selling Regulations do not apply and refunds will only be provided post-delivery for goods that are deemed to be faulty, contrary to the Sale of Goods Act 1979. Should you decide to claim a refund based on the product being faulty, the product must be returned to us within fourteen days of receipt for our inspection, in the same condition and packaging as received by you. We are unable to refund shipping costs in such circumstances. Should the product be deemed to be faulty by us, we will dispatch a replacement product or a refund within 28 days.
In the occurrence of a failed or late delivery on a specified date or time agreed by our telesales team, Skirting World Ltd are not liable for any direct loss, loss of business or profits (whether or not the loss of such profits was foreseeable, arose in the normal course of things or you have advised this Company of the possibility of such potential loss).
Goods that are ordered incorrectly can be returned but are subject to a 50% restocking fee. The customer will be charged for the collection of the goods and will only be entitled to 50% of the material value. A new order can be placed for the correct goods and we can take the refund amount away from the total value. Our products are custom made to order for every customer. Because the goods are custom made, they have little to no immediate resale value (we do not stock any of our products and do not have the facilities to do so) and are disposed of appropriately once returned to us.
