Terms & Conditions of Sale
Ord Office Ltd is an online ordering where members of the public are welcome to use it. All prices exclude VAT unless clearly shown as including vat (inc vat). By using this site you agree to the terms and conditions below.
References to Next Day delivery means Next Working Day delivery that is Monday to Friday inclusive (but not including Bank Holidays and other Public Holidays) and does not apply to items that are out of stock. Deliveries to addresses outside of Mainland UK (Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Scottish Islands) or Scottish Highlands may take 1 to 5 working days. Bulky or irregular items such as firesafes, white goods, notice boards, storage boxes, water coolers, large shredders, filing cabinets etc will usually take 1-3 working days but furniture can take 1 to 5 working days and specialist or made to order furniture up can take up to 2-4 weeks. Goods are despatched on a Next Working Day service with established couriers DPD, Federal Express, Truline or United Parcel Services but Ord Office Ltd have no control over their drivers or operations and Ord Office Ltd will not be be held liable for any delays to your delivery. All delivery timescales quoted are given in good faith from the carriers but they are not an absolute guarantee.
Delivery is FREE for orders over £50 (excl vat) or higher to most addresses in mainland United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. However a charge of £8.99 (excl vat) is made for orders with Goods totalling under £50 (excl vat).
Occasionally a large or very heavy item will require a delivery surcharge to be made, for example large fire safes, or anything requiring a two person delivery. If this is the case, we will contact you and give you the opportunity to cancel your order if you do not wish to pay this additional charge.
If your order originally qualified for free delivery but is subsequently reduced below £50 (excl vat) because of the return for credit of an unwanted product from the order or the cancellation of an item remaining on backorder, then your order no longer qualifies for free delivery and the standard delivery charge according to destination and order value may, at our discretion, become due.
We do not deliver to any country other than the United Kingdom.
Delivery is made to the specified address only and will require a signature. Delivery cannot be made to any other location. If no one is available to sign for the delivery, a notification card will NOT be left but instead the parcel will be returned to the carrier's depot and a further delivery attempt will take place next working day. A third, final attempt at delivery will be made, but then the parcel will be returned to us. We will then cancel the order and refund you, less the cost of delivery.
When signing for the delivery you must count and match the number of parcels, boxes, packages and envelopes being delivered to the consignment count specified on the delivery note. You should not sign if there is a discrepancy, instead notify us immediately. We cannot be held liable for a subsequent lost or missing parcel after you have signed for the delivery.
You should also immediately examine the full contents of your delivery to ensure there are no shortages, damages or errors to the delivery. Notify us within 2 working days, in writing, by replying to the "Order Dispatched" email we will have sent you, if there are damages, shortages, missing items or errors with your order. Claims made by other means or made outside of this 2 working day period will not be entertained.
Damaged, faulty or wrongly described products
Goods arriving damaged, faulty or which are wrongly described will be collected free of charge for replacement or refund but you must contact us, in writing, within 2 working days by replying to the email on the website, with details of the damage or fault. Evidence or a report of the fault or damage may be required.
Faults discovered after 2 working days will be handled subject to the manufacturer's guarantee which is usually, but not limited to, between 3 months and 1 year - contact us with full details of the fault and we will advise the course of action to get the item repaired or if applicable, replaced or refunded.
Unwanted (cancelled) products
Food and drink products cannot be returned.
Copyrighted products like software, music, movies, CDs, DVDs and video products cannot be returned if they have been opened or their seal has been broken or tampered with.
Consumables products (for example but not limited to inkjet, ribbons, toner cartridges) cannot be returned if they have been opened or their outer seal has been broken or tampered with.
Most furniture and dated, customised or made to order products such as diaries, calendars, events, stamps, clothing and furniture cannot be returned.
Unwanted or ordered in error products can be returned for credit provided they pass the food and drink, copyrighted, consumables, dated and made to order criteria detailed above and you contact us in writing by replying to the "Order Dispatched" email we will have sent you within 14 days of the goods being delivered to your address and the product is returned unmarked, undamaged, unused and in a resaleable "as new" condition and includes all original packaging and accessories and instruction manuals.
We must collect the item from the address we delivered to and we will deduct from your refund the cost of the collection which is currently £10 (excl vat)+VAT. If your order originally qualified for free delivery but by returning the unwanted product brings the order back below the free delivery threshold, then the original delivery fee will be deducted from your order. If you originally paid for delivery that will not be refunded. We may also deduct up to 20% in restocking fee from your refund if our supplier of the item charges us restocking fee for the return of the unwanted items.
We are unable to accept any returned product or refund any purchase unless it has been arranged and agreed in advance with us.
