These terms and conditions will apply to all sales of products made and supplied by Bert & May to our customers.
1. Cancellation and order amendments
1. Where the goods are "made to order" you cannot:
- amend or cancel your order
- return the goods
- seek any refund of the price paid by you from us
This is because when we receive your order, the order is placed with our suppliers and the manufacturing process begins immediately.
The goods are manufactured to your exact specification, pursuant to The Consumer Contracts.
1.2 For stock orders, where the goods are held by Bert & May, immediately available and not created especially for you, you may amend your order with us 5 working days prior to the despatch date.
For orders placed through the Sales or Trade departments please contact them directly.
For orders placed via www.bertandmay.com contact Customer Services on 0203 744 0776 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Order amendments may delay the previously agreed delivery date and time. Any amendments that result in a subsequent “made to order” order being placed will be issued with a new delivery time.
1.3 “Made to order” products are all items ordered & manufactured specifically for the customer and include all paint orders, fabric, all bathroom fittings and any custom colours or bespoke tile designs.
1.4 Amendments to an order must be of equal or higher value. Any increase in the order value must be paid for at the time of the amendment.

3.1 The price of goods shall be the price in force at the time you confirm your order. We reserve the right to update our price list from time to time without providing specific notice to you.
3.2 The price includes VAT (unless otherwise stated). VAT will be charged at the rate applying at the time of delivery.

We will not charge you extra delivery costs for this. If you ask us to deliver the order in instalments, we may charge you extra delivery costs.
Each instalment shall constitute a separate contract. If we are late delivering an instalment or one instalment is faulty, that will not entitle you to cancel any other instalment.
4.4 We will take reasonable steps to meet the delivery estimate set out on the order (or as otherwise agreed between us in writing).
However, occasionally delivery may be affected by factors which we do not control and so cannot be guaranteed. We will let you know if we become aware of an unexpected delay and will arrange a new delivery with you.
We shall have no liability for late delivery except where time has been made the essence of the contract and agreed by both parties in writing at time of ordering.
