At thesolidoakshop.com we do our best to describe the products the best we can. We reserve the right to change the design of any product without prior notice. All items are hand made in our own UK based workshop and as such all sizes listed are for guidance only. Should you wish for an item to be a precise size you must enquire before placing any order. All our furniture is made from quality natural Oak and accordingly appearances may vary. Some woods will mellow with age and exposure to sunlight. When you are purchasing our furniture you are buying handmade furniture and as such can be slightly different from the items pictured on the website. Certain degrees of filler will be used on oak furniture this is common and very much part of the manufacturing process. Jointing of timber is very much common place and in most cases the end result is an item which is a lot more stable.
Orders must be paid for in full at time of ordering.
On standard items ordered from our website you can cancel the order at any point for a full refund. All refunds are made within 30 days [sooner in most cases] You must inform us via email if you wish to cancel.
Bespoke and made to measure orders can be canceled up to 7 days after placing the order without any charge. Should you wish to cancel the order between day 8 and up to the day before dispatch there will be a 25% charge of the total order value. The refund will be 75% of the funds paid and within 30 days [sooner in most cases] These orders cannot be canceled on or after the dispatch date
Paypal dipute/ chargebacks
As above if you wish to cancel just tell us. If you are wondering where your delivery is just ask. Any paypal disputes will result in you being refunded and the sale cancelled. If you do want to cancell it is a far easier and quicker just to tell us. Please do not use the paypal dispute system to ask how long your item will take to come as the sale will then need to be cancelled.
