Please email or call ahead to check exact sizes or potential changes as on occasions minor adjustments may have been made by our supplier.

1.5 We endeavor to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear in our showrooms, on our website and other promotional materials. However, we cannot guarantee the complete accuracy of the pictures or photographs that are shown. Many conditions such as monitor settings and batching can affect the colouring of items in a picture.

1.6 From time to time we have a specifically marked section of our website marked as clearance ranges when you purchase items from a clearance/discontinued range please note that this stock may not be new or boxed. The items are from a discontinued range and as such are being sold as seconds. These items may have been excessively handled so may have knocks, scratches or other defects due to being over-handled. The sale price takes this into consideration.

1.7 At Brooks Rattan Garden Furniture the majority of our products are designed with no home assembly needed, however on occasions to aid in delivery or to avoid damage, our designers have deemed it best that certain items will need minimal home assembly. Most dining tables and beds may need some minor assembly. Items needing minimal home assembly will be clearly identified in the individual item description. Brooks Rattan Garden Furniture designers have, to the best of their ability, ensured any assembly is as simple as possible and in no way detracts from the quality or structural integrity of the product. We do not unpack any of your items or assemble any of your furniture on delivery unless specifically agreed at point of sale. Our drivers operate to a strict timetable so it is important that all other deliveries that day are met on time. Please note that we cannot facilitate the removal of any of your packaging.

The date suggested on your order confirmation is our estimated delivery date. We will endeavor to deliver your furniture on or before this date.

5.3 Small orders may be dispatched by post or courier.

5.4 For all orders - any changes made to the content of your order will have an impact on your delivery date. We may, therefore, be unable to deliver your goods on your confirmed delivery date should change occur and if so, new delivery date will be given. If we are unable to deliver your entire order on the same day due to unforeseen circumstances, we will deliver your order in installments. We will not charge you for this; however, if this is at your request, we may charge you extra delivery costs. If we are late delivering one or more of the parts of your order that will not entitle you to cancel any subsequent installments which complete the order.

If we are unable to deliver the goods due to there being no safe means of access, we reserve the right to cancel your order and refund the payments subject to our refund policy.

5.16 For orders of multiple items, the estimated delivery date will be assigned according to the longest lead time. If multiple orders are placed for the same delivery address, these will be grouped and the estimated delivery date will again be chosen according to the longest lead time.

5.17 Where applicable, to ensure guaranteed Christmas delivery we will contact you beforehand to arrange a date to deliver your order. If you are unable to accept this delivery date we can arrange an alternate date, but due to the complex nature of re-arranging the route, we cannot guarantee this will be prior to the Christmas holidays.
