Sourcing (when additional to, or not included in a package)
Where the client requires Sally Allgood to specify an actual item and its supplier, but they themselves will purchase the item. There will be a sourcing fee of 5% of the price of the item (price at the time of specifying). Sally Allgood will endeavour to find the best price for the item concerned, but please bear in mind that internet prices can vary daily.
Sally Allgood will work with the client and endeavour to find an item acceptable (up to a maximum of 3 suggestions). N.B. this fee will be payable even if the client doesn’t proceed with any of the items specified.
The contract for all items purchased by the client in this manner will be between the client and the supplier. Sally Allgood will not be liable for any issues arising.
With Trade Discount-
Where the client requires Sally Allgood to source and purchase the items.
This will generally apply to suppliers where Sally Allgood has access to trade discounts. A percentage of the trade discount will be passed on to the client (generally between 5%-15% from the RRP*) and there will be no sourcing or procurement fee.
Where No Trade Discount Exists-
When a client requests Sally Allgood to purchase accessories to complete a project, there will be a procurement fee of 10% of the total cost of the items. A total budget will be given by the client, so the client is aware of the maximum procurement fee that will be payable. N.B. This fee will apply even if items are not kept.
The contract will be between Sally Allgood and the supplier. Any returns or product issues will be dealt with by Sally Allgood.
Any combination of the above terms can be used in a project, but the client must state clearly, in writing, which terms they would like to work at any given point in the project.
As stated above, items procured by Sally Allgood are returnable through Sally Allgood at Furniture and Interiors unless they fall into the categories below.
Unfortunately, due to our suppliers’ terms and conditions, paint, fabric, and wallpaper are not returnable (even if rolls are un-opened) unless faulty. We will endeavour to calculate the necessary quantity of wallpaper as accurately as possible but cannot be held responsible if decorators run short.
All bespoke items are non-returnable unless manufacturing faults are present.
Fabrics and Fabric Care
Advice on fabric suitability for washing / dry cleaning can be sought from the relevant fabric supplier. However, when a combination of fabrics has been used (for example where lined curtains have been made, or where trimmings have been applied) rates of shrinkage between fabrics may cause the item in question to be pulled out of shape and even dry cleaning may not be possible. It is recommended that cleaning is done by means of gentle vacuuming. We can take no responsibility for any damage occurring to items due to cleaning in the wrong manner.
We can take no responsibility for any fabric shrinkage due to high humidity, improper cleaning, or damage arising from mishandling, once the item is within its intended destination.
Fixtures and Fittings for Window Treatments
We may advise on, or supply fixtures and fittings. However, we can take no responsibility for any damage to property during or after the attachment of such fixtures or fittings by the customer or third-party fitter. Blinds will be supplied with all necessary safety features. Should you, refuse the fitting of safety features during installation, or remove safety features once fitters leave your premises, we take no responsibility for injury or death as a result.
Advice on wallpaper application and after care can be sought from the relevant supplier. We can take no responsibility for any damage occurring to wallpaper due to incorrect application or cleaning in the wrong manner.
While every effort will be made to ensure reasonable lead times, occasionally delays will be inevitable, due to circumstances beyond our control. When delays do occur, we will keep you informed of the current situation at regular intervals.
Delivery costs, where applicable, will be included on the quotation, unless otherwise stated.
