CANCELLATION, RETURNS AND REFUND POLICY
We hope you will be pleased with everything you have bought from us but if you are unhappy with your Products, you can return them to us in accordance with the returns policy described in this section.
Right to cancel
Under The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 you have a legal right to cancel the contract between you and us within 14 days of delivery without giving a reason unless the product is a custom order/ bespoke order.
The cancellation period will end after 14 days starting the day after you or a third party acting on your behalf (excluding the company that delivers the Product to you) takes physical possession of the Product you ordered. Where you order multiple Products in one order or a Product is delivered in separate parts, lots or pieces, the cancellation period will end after 14 days starting the day after you or a third party acting on your behalf (excluding the company that delivers the Product to you) takes physical possession of the last Product, part, lot or piece that makes up your order.
To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your contract with us by making a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or email). The easiest way to do this is to contact our Customer Services team.
To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning the exercise of your right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
Effects of cancellation
If you cancel your contract with us, we will reimburse you all payments received from you, including the cost of delivery.
We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than: (a) 14 days after the day we receive back from you any Products supplied, or (b) (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the Products, or (c) if there were no goods supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract.
We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the Products back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the Products, whichever is the earliest.
You are only liable for any diminished value of the Products resulting from the unfair/unreasonable wear and tear of the Product which is not necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Products. We may make a deduction from any reimbursement (you are entitled to from us) for such loss in value of any Products we supply.
Faulty or mis-described goods
If you are returning the Products to us because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund: the price of the Product in full; any applicable delivery charges. As a consumer, you will always have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by the returns policy or these terms and conditions of sale. We will refund you only through the payment method used by you to pay.

Our Standard Delivery refers to deliveries within most of mainland UK (England, Scotland and Wales) destinations. Deliveries to the Highlands, Islands and other countries will incur an additional delivery fee and will normally incur an extended lead time. (Please note that certain items may not be deliverable to these areas).
Some postcode areas may also incur an additional delivery charge due to remoteness or accessibility restrictions. You will be informed of any additional charges during checkout before you make payment. For further information regarding delivery please contact our customer services team. Deliveries can take between 2-14 working days. This time frame can very in our busy periods, and may depend on your product, i.e. custom and larger items may take longer.
N I CLIMBING FRAMES TERMS OF BUSINESS
Any times or dates stated on our website or confirmation emails regarding Delivery are estimates only. N I Climbing Frames attempts to deliver within 14 days, but does not accept liability for any failure to deliver within that time. Orders received on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays and orders received after 12pm on weekdays, will be processed the next working day.(This time frame can very in our busy periods, and may depend on your product, i.e. custom and larger items may take longer.) Our delivery service does not include delivery on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays.
Whilst we agree to use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that delivery is made on the day offered, you will acknowledge that delivery is made via third party suppliers and is therefore beyond our control. We therefore cannot accept responsibility for any personal costs incurred for delays or missed deliveries. Incorrect personal details may lead to problems or delays in delivery, so before placing your order, please ensure that you have included the full address details, including accurate postcode of the delivery address and your daytime contact telephone numbers and e-mail address so we can notify you in the event of a delivery problem.
WHEN THE DELIVERY ARRIVES
Delivery will be deemed as successfully made once the Product has arrived at the address specified and the POD has been signed. A signature will be required as proof of delivery. All goods must be signed for by an adult aged 18 years or more.
Should delivery be refused at the delivery address (for any reason other than damages/missing items), and re-requested for another date, we may charge for the second delivery, since we met our delivery obligations with the initial delivery attempt. It is the recipient's responsibility to sign for the correct number of packages as shown on the carrier's delivery consignment note. Shortages and damages must be noted on the consignment note. If products arrive in a damaged condition you must make a note on the carrier's delivery consignment note and inform us within 24 hours of the delivery. Please note if you have a slide delivered which is not boxed, it is imperative that the slide bag is opened and checked for damages prior to signing the POD from the driver.
Deliveries will often consist of multiple items. You should notify us of the shortages within 7 days of delivery. If boxes look damaged on delivery we recommend clearly marking the POD as "damaged". Often it will only be the outer carton that is damage and the wood included will be fine so we would normally advise to accept the delivery; however it is within your rights to reject the delivery. We request that you either accept or reject the whole consignment. Please contact us whilst the delivery driver is with you if you are unsure of what to do.
You have 30 days to report missing or damaged parts from your product. Products will be deemed your responsibility once they have been accepted by you, your agent or the intended recipient. Any loss or damage to the Products shall then be at your own risk.

NICF views complaints as an opportunity to learn and improve for the future, as well as a chance to put things right for the person (or organisation) that has made the complaint.
A complaint is any expression of dissatisfaction, whether justified or not, about any aspect of our operation.
All complaint information will be handled with strict confidentiality. This is done by only telling those who need to know, who will be involved in generating the options and coming to the final solution.
Our aim is Four-fold:
To provide a fair complaints procedure that is clear and easy to use for any customers wishing to make a complaint.
To make sure that all complaints are investigated fairly and in a timely manner
To publicise the existence of our complaints procedure so that customers know how to contact us in the event of a complaint.
To gather information which helps us to improve what we do
Our procedure is as follows:
We will note the complaint and begin the process to manage it.
It will be passed onto our customer services personnel. (inc evidence, if and where applicable)
It would then be reviewed and assessed (normally in 1-3 working days)
Appropriate action would be taken. Disciplinary if needed. Problems would be rectified if needed
We would try to leave whoever or whatever has brought the issue to light as pleased as possible
In many cases, a complaint is best resolved by the person responsible for the issue being complained about. If the complaint has been received by that person, they may be able to resolve it swiftly and should do so if possible and appropriate.
Whether or not the complaint has been resolved, the complaint information should be passed to NI Climbing Frames management as soon as possible.
On receiving the complaint, we will record it in the complaints log. If it has not already been resolved, we delegate an appropriate person to investigate it and to take appropriate action. If the complaint relates to a specific person, they should be informed and given a fair opportunity to respond.
We will acknowledge the complaint and contact the relevant person to let them know when they can expect a reply (Timescale is usually 1 to 2 weeks)
NB: this contact will include a copy of our complaints procedure document.
we then document the investigations carried out into the complaint and findings. We conclude the investigation and describe any action taken.
Ideally complainants should receive a definitive reply within 4 weeks. If this is not possible because for example, an investigation has not been fully completed, a progress report should be sent with an indication of when a full reply will be given (Maximum of 2 further weeks).
Whether the complaint is justified or not, the reply to the complainant should describe the action taken to investigate the complaint, the conclusions from the investigation, and any action taken as a result of the complaint.
A copy of our complaints procedure document is automatically supplied to the relevant person/party when we acknowledge a complaint. The FOS leaflet “Your complaint and the Ombudsmen” is also provided with our final response letter.
If the matter cannot be resolved, the customer can refer the complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Services (FOS). The full contact details can be found at the end of this document.
This policy is reviewing on a regular basis and updated as required to make sure that we are constantly dealing with the complaints procedure as best we can.
Complaints are reviewed annually to identify any trends which may indicate a need to take further action.
NICF Complaints can be received verbally, by telephone, email or in writing:
In writing: NI Climbing Frames at 26 Halfway Road, Banbridge, County Down, BT32 4ET.
