Carpets - All samples are provided to give a general impression and when fitted to larger areas the appearance could vary special with patterned carpet and striped carpet. Colour also changes from batch to batch and cannot no be guarded there sample should be taken as a guide, therefore no guarantee can be give between 4 and 5 meter widths.

Whilst every effort is made to manufacture to the correct size, variations are unavoidable. The British Standards Institute tolerance is + or - 1.25% either way. Clause 3 BS.3655. Any claim for tolerance in width or length outside 1.25% can only be considered after inspection of the carpet by a representative of the Company.

Shading cannot be prevented. It is not a manufacturer fault or defect. Similar different production batches may vary in shade, thus exact colour match cannot be guaranteed from batch to batch.

Flattening is important to note that all cut pile carpets of any fibre type will flatten to some extent in high traffic areas. This “Flattening” is a normal reaction to localised traffic in both domestic and contract locations, not a manufacturing fault.

Marshall’s recommends that all new carpet be professionally fitted on a smooth sub-floor using a good quality underlay and accessories. If the underlay is too worn or old this could seriously affect the life, performance and guarantee of the carpet.

 

Vinyl - Vinyl flooring should be directly laid to a smooth clean sub floor, and should not be laid on top of old vinyl or tiles. It is recommended areas over 15 square metres should be fully stuck down using a suitable adhesive.  All sizes are approximate and within a tolerance of plus or minus 1.25% in accordance with BS3655. If your room is close to the nominal width of the vinyl please allow extra material.

 

Laminate and Wood - Laminate and wooden flooring will be affected by moisture, to prevent moisture related problems follow the suppliers fitting and maintenance instructions carefully to prevent swelling of the joints or other moisture-related problems.

Wooden flooring is a natural product and our responsibly sourced products will vary from plank to plank as a result. Samples and images seen or borrowed from our store should be taken as a guide only. Most wooden flooring requires regular maintenance seek suppliers recommendations same applies to cleaning.

 

Beds - During use the fillings of a mattress will settle and flatten and may form hollows in the most used parts of the mattress. Most mattresses should be turned regular unless otherwise stated.  This is perfectly normal and is not a fault. Comfort is a very personal matter and we recommend that you test your chosen mattress/divan to satisfy yourself of its suitability for you at our store, as we do not offer a comfort guarantee. We recommend that you change your base when you change your mattress to ensure your new purchase gives you the best possible performance and longevity.

Your new mattress will support your body significantly better than an old mattress. For the first few weeks, this may feel uncomfortable but you will feel the benefit of better sleep once you’re used to the new support. Please be aware that our mattress spring count quotes are based on the number of springs found in a 5ft or 150cm mattress. We're applicable mattress must be either rotated or turned regularly.

 

Fitting - We can arrange for one of our fitters to deliver and/or fit your purchase under a separate agreement between you and them. We retain full responsibility for the products and services we supply and the deliverer/installer is responsible for the standard and quality of, and any liability arising from, delivery and/or installation.

Delivery and fitting is chargeable and where carpets are to be fitted to stairs and/or vinyl or laminate flooring is to be fitted to a hallway an additional charge is made to reflect the additional fitting work involved in these areas. These charges may be payable to the contractor. The charges quoted are for the goods shown on the order only. If you require additional fitting services these can be agreed with the fitter in advance and quoted for separately.

Fitting appointments are made in good faith but the exact arrival and duration times cannot be guaranteed due to the nature and unpredictability of the work involved. We cannot accept liability for delayed arrival, but you can be assured that the fitters will complete your work even if it exceeds the expected time allocation.

Fitters undertake to carry out their work with reasonable skill and care, but even with the greatest care home décor may be marked or scuffed during the fitting process. New paintwork and wallpaper is especially vulnerable and should be allowed to fully dry. A minimum of two weeks is recommended. Neither we nor any fitter undertake to carry out any redecoration, except where damage has been caused by that person’s negligence.

Doors may need to be trimmed to allow clearance. This is not part of the fitting work unless this has been specifically agreed. Fitters may remove doors to facilitate fitting and have them ready for you or your appointed carpenter to carry out the trimming and re-hanging.

The fitters do not disconnect washing machines, dishwashers or cookers.

Stretching is an inherent part in some types of carpet and is not a fault in either the carpet or the fitting and as such is not a valid reason for withholding payment due. We undertake to re-stretch free of charge within the period of 6 months from the date of fitting.

The position of hidden pipes and cables, which are known to the customer and have not been fitted by a qualified tradesman, should be notified to the fitter. If they are not a minimum of 1½ inches below the surface of the sub floor we cannot take any responsibility.
