All items should be inspected before being taken away from the store by yourself or your ‘agent’ acting on your behalf. Any questions thereafter must be raised within 24 hours of being in your care.

Once these products have been fitted Tiles Away will be unable to refund, exchange or compensate in any way for any fixing, refixing or any other charges you might incur.
Our instore samples are not necessarily an exact match of the product due to the fact that batch variations in shade, colour, glazes & pattern can occur.
Tiles Away cannot be held responsible for such variations. However, as standard, we do ensure that your order is all of the same batches.
OWNERSHIP OF GOODS:
Goods are supplied on approval under an agreement to sell. This means the contract of sale is not concluded when you pay but will be concluded when you collect or take delivery of the goods. Signing for goods signifies your acceptance and approval of goods.
However, we recognise that some circumstances demand a longer time frame window and as such we need to be notified of any faults or other discrepancies within 24 hours of you/your agent receiving the goods.
All & any issue beyond this time frame will be considered null and void as Tiles Away can be held responsible for goods no longer in its care.
Tiles Away reserve the right to withdraw from any sale of goods & to refund the customer the cost of said goods where appropriate.
Unless tiles are held in stock by us at the time of purchase then they are considered as Special Purchase Orders.
Regrettably, Tiles Away can not offer refunds on Special Order Purchases either in part or in total. It is therefore essential that you are absolutely sure of your choice and your measurements at the time of ordering.
Orders under 5m² can incur an express handling & delivery charge due to minimum order value enforced on us by suppliers. We will notify you if this applies to you.
If you have already paid for goods & do not wish to wait for a longer period or to pay for an express handling & delivery charge thereafter we will refund you.
Sometimes delays in-stock availability or delivery of orders can occur. This can be due to various factors. The most common factors are incorrect supplier stock control, damages in transit and even transportation issues.
We cannot be held responsible for these factors which are beyond our control. Tiles Away will not be liable for any costs incurred by you as a result of a delayed or cancelled order.
We recommend that you wait until you receive your goods before instructing your project to begin. In cases where you do not receive your goods within a reasonable time & where you are not able to wait for delivery we will refund you the cost of your order in full.
