TERMS & CONDITIONS
We are pleased to accept orders subject to these terms and conditions of sale. Unless expressly agreed in writing by a Director of this Company there can be no alteration to these conditions. By signing this invoice, the Customer declares that they have read and agree to the conditions laid out here. In all other instances payment will constitute implied acceptance of our terms and conditions.
Customers are required to pay a 50% non-refundable deposit of the total order value at the time of ordering, except in the case of accessories, which when purchased separately must be paid for in full. Items requiring larger sizes, extra length or special measures may be subject to a surcharge. Items are not made to measure and may need alterations depending on the Customers measurements. Alterations are not included in the price and cannot take place until said items are paid for in full. Items are ordered to the nearest UK size. We accept no responsibility for any changes to a Customers measurements, weight, or body shape after an order has been placed. Exact colours, shades of fabric, linings and designs on trim cannot be guaranteed. Samples on the shop floor can sometimes vary in colour due to not being brand new.
All sale and sold as seen items must be paid for in full and are non-refundable. All balances are payable within 14days of arrival of goods in store (we will notify you of their arrival). Items with outstanding balances after this date may begin to incur a storage fee of £20 per item per month until paid for in full. Under no circumstance is the Customer entitled to make any deduction or withhold payment for any reason. If the agreed terms for payment are exceeded, we reserve the right to charge interest at 4% above the Bank base rate, compounded daily, on the amount outstanding until paid for in full. We will be entitled to pursue you for the money plus any costs incurred, by whatever means appropriate.
Cancellation of an order must be given in writing within 48hours of the date of ordering by the customer named on this invoice. Thereafter the order is considered a legally binding contract. We reserve the right not to accept cancellations outside of this timeframe. An order will only be considered cancelled when the Customer has received written confirmation of acceptance from us.
Items will in most cases be available one week before the event date. We will contact you when they are available for collection. Garments do have a small tolerance in sizing, Cheshire Menswear will only replace items where a measurement is out by more than 1 inch. Items must be returned to Cheshire Menswear on the first day the Company is open after the event. All items must be returned including suit hangers and carriers. The price paid for hire wear reflects the fact that they are worn and cleaned on a regular basis and cannot be considered brand new.
- DAMAGED, LATE OR LOST ITEMS & ADW
The Customer is responsible for the cost of any hire item that is unreturned, lost, stolen or maliciously damaged. A full range of charges are available on request. The Accidental Damage Waiver does not cover garments which have in our opinion been damaged through inappropriate use. The items maliciously damaged or unreturned to Cheshire Menswear on the day they are due (see section 5) will be deemed lost and charged for as such with payment due immediately. Should the Customer later return these items, within 7 days of the event date, 50% of the lost item charge will be refunded. Once the payment is outstanding for more than 7 days an additional administration fee of £100 will become payable.
- COLLECTION OF GOODS
Goods remain the property of Cheshire Menswear and will not be allowed to leave the premises until paid for in full. Items not collected within 3 months after the event date will be deemed unwanted and any monies paid will not be refunded. Those items will be entered into Cheshire Menswear stock.
Should we breach our obligations under these conditions liability is limited only to any direct and quantifiable loss incurred by the Customer arising from such breach. The Company will not be liable for any breach caused by circumstances outside of our control including but not restricted to acts of God, war, riot, malicious damage, fire, flood, storm or pandemic.
