Total price for jobs includes VAT at current rate unless specified. 
We cannot be held liable for any carpets or floor-coverings that do not fit if the customer has provided us with their own measurements. 
For fitting appointments, times of either AM (8-12) or PM (12-5) will be given. Due to the nature and unpredictability of the work involved exact arrival and duration times cannot be guaranteed. If you require a more accurate ETA, please call the shop on the day of your fitting appointment and we can check timings with our technical staff. We cannot accept liability for delayed arrival times or prolonged fitting times. 
If the customer wishes to cancel and re-schedule a fitting appointment please try and give us as much notice as possible, but a minimum of 48 hours’ notice, otherwise a cancelation charge of 50% of the fitting cost may apply at our discretion. The full installation fees will then also apply for the rescheduled appointment. 
Should any of our employees or fitter’s time be wasted due to not being able to gain access to the property/site to deliver and install carpets/floorcoverings, or the site not being ready to receive fitting at the appointed time, this will result in a charge being made to the customer to recover the losses to the company. 
This will usually be 50% of the installation fees which shall be payable by the Customer. The full installation fees will then also apply for the rescheduled appointment. 
It is the customer's responsibility to notify Milbank Carpets in writing of the location of any pipes or cables, which might be exposed or damaged during the fitting process. 
No responsibility can be accepted for damage to under floor pipes, cables or for consequential damage to property or fittings. 
Our installers are experienced and look to undertake the work with care, but even with the greatest attention there is a chance that décor may be scuffed during installation. This is especially true with large, heavy carpets. New paintwork is particularly vulnerable and should be allowed to fully dry; a minimum of one week is recommended. 
If required we can move furniture, but please note that this is a chargeable service. We only move larger items such as beds, sofas, wardrobes, tables etc, we do not move personal belongings, clothing, ornaments, and other small items. All contents of any furniture such as wardrobes must be emptied if we are to move them and duvets/pillows/sheets etc must be removed from beds. 
If required we can move appliances, this is a chargeable service. All appliances that need to be moved must be fully unplumbed and ready to be moved. 
We do not accept responsibility for any damage to furniture, appliances, or electrical equipment that we move. Nor will we be responsible for any leaks from appliances. 
If replacing furniture/appliances please do not drag items over newly fitted carpets/floorcoverings, as this may cause them to tear, loosen or ruck and a re-stretch may be required which will incur a minimum call out charge. 
While every effort is made, exact colour/design matching cannot be guaranteed between different colour batches or widths of carpet, due to manufacturing tolerances over which we have no control. 
Neither can exact matching be guaranteed between the carpet supplied and the sample displayed in the store. 
All fabrics, especially carpets, are liable to pile shading differences, light and dark areas arising from unequal surface pressure. This is not considered to be a manufacturing defect therefore the Company cannot accept liability for its occurrence. 
For the best finish our products require a smooth, dry, clean, and sound foundation. 
Some subfloors may require preparation before any carpets or floor-coverings can be fitted. 
We provide a chargeable subfloor preparation service. We cannot guarantee that this will always make a subfloor entirely even or level. 
Uneven floorboards and surfaces, if left uncorrected by the customer, can affect the appearance of your new flooring by being seen through to the surface. 
If a subfloor has not been properly prepared, we cannot be held liable for any imperfections to the carpets or floorcoverings being fitted to imperfect subfloors. 
Please note that no cancellations or returns are possible in the following circumstances: after the dispatch of materials/goods from our suppliers, once materials such as runners or carpets have been cut, installations have been completed (in part or full), or for bespoke products that have been made to order. 
For goods ordered on a supply-only basis, Milbank Carpets strictly adheres to a no-returns policy. It is therefore imperative for the customer (and/or their installer) to thoroughly verify the accuracy of quantity and specifications before confirming the order. 
At Milbank Carpets, we understand that despite our best efforts and utmost dedication, unforeseen challenges may arise. We are committed to minimizing any errors and ensuring a seamless experience for all. In the rare instance that an error does occur, we will take prompt action to address the issue and minimize an inconvenience caused.

Your satisfaction is our priority, and we appreciate your understanding as we work diligently to address any issues that may arise. 
The acceptance of a quote/estimate means that the customer agrees to the Terms and Conditions of Milbank Carpets Ltd. 
All materials remain the property of Milbank Carpets until paid for in full. 
For installation to commence as agreed, there should be adequate parking (with permits provided if they are needed), good access, toilet facilities and provisions for water and electricity. All area(s) should be clear of any furniture, building materials and tools. 
The installation dates we commit to are given in good faith, these almost always go ahead as planned but in the event of a delay, one of the team at Milbank Carpets will be in touch as soon as possible to inform you and find a suitable solution. We do not accept responsibility for, nor can we compensate for when delays are beyond our control (such as a manufacturing setbacks or external delivery problems). 
It is the customers responsibility to inform the company of any illness (such as Covid 19) before attending an appointment in the showroom or before a scheduled measure/fitting appointment. This is to help protect our staff. 
If a carpet is fitted as a stair runner to open sided stairs (stair spindles) underlay may be visible in some cases and there will be a void between the carpet and stairs. This is normal and is not a fitting fault. 
If the Company has not been asked to quote for furniture removal in advance of installation but on the day of installation it is necessary for the Company, to move furniture then the Company reserve the right to make a fair charge to the Customer for the clearance of each room.
