Terms and Conditions
- TERMS OF SALE
These terms of sale (“Terms of Sale”) set out the terms and conditions on which we supply any of the products (“Product” or “Products”) listed on our website www.furniturenortheast.com (“our site”) to you.
Please read these Terms of Sale carefully before ordering any Products from our site. These Terms of Sale tell you who we are, how we will provide Products to you, how you and we may end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you do not agree to these Terms of Sale you must not order any Product through our site.
Section A of these Terms of Sale details any particular sales promotions that we are currently running. Any purchase made in relation to such sales promotions is governed by both Section A and the general terms of sale set out in Section B so you should carefully review both Sections before ordering Products that are part of a sales promotion. If the Products that you wish to order are not part of a sales promotion, you can ignore Section A.
SECTION A – CURRENT SALES PROMOTIONS
Special buy products are available for a limited time only. The prices have been specifically negotiated with our suppliers and we believe to offer value for money rather than a discount from a previously established price.
Any order of Products made in relation to sales promotions described in this Section A will be governed by the terms set out in this Section A and also the general terms set out in Section B below.
SECTION B – GENERAL TERMS OF SALE

2.3 All orders are subject to acceptance by us. We will send you a confirmation e-mail after receiving your order and this will constitute acceptance by us. The contract between you and us will only be made when we send you this email. We will charge your chosen payment method after we accept your order. We will send a further email when your order has been dispatched.
2.4 Unfortunately we can’t stop an order once it has been dispatched. If you change your mind about your order after this point you can reject return the Products to us in accordance with the returns policy below at clause 9.
2.5 Before ordering from us, it is your responsibility to check and determine your full ability to receive the Products ordered. This includes ensuring that the Products ordered will pass freely into your room of choice, they fit in that room, can be transported through the door of your building or room, stairs and doorways, and there are no other issues that could make delivery more complicated or impossible such as parking restrictions or vehicle size.
2.6 You must keep the contact details we hold for you up-to-date so that we can contact you if necessary about your order or the delivery of the Products.
3.1 All orders for Products are subject to the availability of those Products and the materials for making the Products. We will inform you as soon as possible after receiving your order if, for any reason, the Products you have ordered are not available or are subject to any delay.

If you have already paid for the Product we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.
- IMAGES AND SIZING OF PRODUCTS
4.1 The images of the Products on our site are for illustrative purposes only.

5.2 The price of any Product may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order we have accepted.

5.4 Due to the large number of Products on our site, it is always possible that some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced, despite our reasonable efforts. We will normally verify prices as part of our order-handling procedure so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If the Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of the rejection.
5.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an order acceptance, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
5.6 For each specific Product we may provide a “typical high street” price to allow you to compare the cost of our Product with similar items sold by other retailers. This comparable price is an estimate only (based on closest equivalent products in design and functionality, but which may differ in other respects, such as finishes and materials) and the items compared may not exactly match the characteristics of the Product on our site.
