Delivery & Returns
COVID-19 Delivery Notice
Order delivery schedule is operating as usual, however, Vinyl Flooring Direct is taking the necessary precautions to look after the health and safety of our customers, employees and suppliers.
Our drivers will not be able to help you with carrying in the goods. We are sorry for that, however, it is a necessary precaution.
We will alert you prior to our arrival and once at the address, knock on the door and/or ring your doorbell to advise your delivery has arrived. Our drivers will then take the right distancing measures and will offload your order to nearest curbside.
If you have been affected by COVID-19, you must let us know via our tel number 0203 869 0899, chat or email.
We will then arrange your delivery accordingly with the necessary precautions.

3. DELIVERY TIMES
Most orders are dispatched with a lead time of 2-4 working days.
To improve customer service, we give our customers the option to choose a convenient delivery date. We will do our best to accommodate this date and will confirm so with the customer via e-mail. However, if the date of choice is not available, we will arrange for an alternatively suitable date.
As deliveries are made by a large lorry or van, it is assumed that the delivery address will be accessible by lorry. If there is likely to be a problem e.g. the road is subject to a vehicle weight or width limit, please inform us at the time of your order.
Deliveries will be made between 8AM and 8PM. We are unable to give an estimate of your delivery time as all deliveries are at the couriers’ discretion. You may, however, ask for a specified AM delivery which will be at an extra cost of £45 + VAT. Saturday delivery can be provided as well, at an extra cost of £50 + VAT.
Due to insurance guidelines, all deliveries are made kerbside, to the nearest access point of the delivery address. You must arrange for adequate help to off-load your products and carry them into site.
If a courier arrives at your address and is unable to deliver on the arranged delivery date because there is no one on site or you are not able to carry the goods in, you will be liable for a re-delivery charge of £70 + VAT. If the original order had a delivery surcharge, then this will also apply in addition to the aforementioned re-delivery charge.
In case of a refused delivery, you will also be liable for any additional direct costs that we incur as a result.
As some circumstances cannot be foreseen and may affect deliveries, we advise not to book any traders for installation until products have been received. No liability can be accepted by us for costs caused by late deliveries, or for any other reason.
Deliveries cannot be left outside in porches, garages or any other location.
The terms herein do not affect your statutory rights.
4. WHEN YOUR ORDER ARRIVES
When your order arrives, you must ensure the quantities match what you have ordered. Please examine the product and count each item to make sure everything has been received.
Every effort is made to ensure that your products are delivered in perfect condition, and all the couriers are selected by stringent guidelines to guarantee the best possible service and quality control.
In the unlikely event that any of your products arrive damaged, please notify the delivery driver immediately and sign the Proof of Delivery document, stating the quantity of the boxes that have been damaged.

Failure to comply with any of the above will result in a void claim. Due to the insurance liability, we cannot accept responsibility for any damaged items signed for as "clear", "unchecked" or in "good condition".
