  1. Price

3.1       All prices quoted are subject to alteration without notice up to the point at which an order is taken.  Thereafter the price will remain fixed save that Talbot Turf Supplies reserves the right, by giving notice to the customer before delivery, to increase the price of the goods to reflect any increases in the cost to Talbot Turf Supplies which is due to any factor beyond the control of Talbot Turf Supplies, any change in delivery dates, quantities or specification for the goods by the customer, or any delay caused by any instructions of the customer or failure of the customer to give Talbot Turf Supplies adequate information or instructions.

3.2       Value Added Tax is not included in the price and will be charged separately.

3.3       A separate charge is made for delivery and pallets out.  Customers will be refunded for pallets returned within 30 days.  Delivery charges quoted are to the address of the order unless otherwise agreed by a partner of Talbot Turf Supplies.

3.4        Delivery

            3.4.1    Talbot Turf Supplies will endeavour at all times to deliver goods ordered within a reasonable time but time of delivery will not be the essence of the contract.  Where, however, due to circumstances beyond their control, delivery is delayed, Talbot Turf Supplies will not be liable for any damages resulting.  If for any reason Talbot Turf Supplies is unable to make a delivery of the whole of any amount ordered, the terms and conditions here set out will still apply to part of the order completed as they would have applied to the whole.

            3.4.2 Leatherjackets found in the turf are not valid grounds for a refund or product replacement.  

            3.4.3 Delivery by the Company shall be conditional upon access free from encumbrances and good roads being available to the haulage Company’s vehicles to the place of delivery “Satisfactory Delivery Conditions”. The Company reserves the right to cancel or hold any orders that the Company deems may suffer from potential delivery problems and as a result, delivery dates may be delayed. The Customer will incur the cost of any requirement to re-attempt delivery due to delivery conditions not being satisfactory.

The Company will not accept any liability for damages to property caused during delivery. It is the Customers’ responsibility to plan for appropriate surfaces onto which our lorries can deliver turf and other palletised products.

Any additional charges incurred during delivery (i.e. parking charges, etc) will be at the liability of the Customer.

If the Company, or its agent cannot gain access to the delivery address then additional costs may be incurred. Deliveries are made using large vehicles, typically 18 tonne wagons, and it is the Customers responsibility to inform the Company if there may be an access problem. In such cases that delivery, in the opinion of the Company is not possible, then the Company reserves the right to cancel the order.

The Company must be informed of any possible “Access Challenges” as you place your order. Please contact us by email if you are in any doubt on “Access Challenges”.

Delivery vehicles use tail lift offloading, and it must be emphasised that the delivery vehicle must be able to safely park in the area where the delivery is to be made. A pallet truck is then used to manoeuvre the goods off the tail lift to the kerbside delivery point. The Customer, or somebody appointed by the Customer, should be at the delivery point to accept the delivery. The delivery drivers are only contracted to deliver the goods to the kerbside. The goods will be palletised.

Please email info@tabotturf.co.uk if a delivery problem does occur. The kerbside delivery point must be flat and hardstanding. We cannot deliver to hills, slopes, inclines or gravel. If you have any concerns over the delivery you must contact the Company before the goods have been dispatched.

Whilst every effort will be made to carry out any delivery instructions passed on, this is not always possible. Any instructions left for delivery are at the discretion of the driver and do not waive the standard kerbside terms and conditions.

The estimated time of delivery will be advised to you in advance determined by our delivery schedules on the day. Each delivery note must be signed for. Where a delivery is made without a signature no refund can be applied.  Orders of goods which are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly cannot be cancelled if they are still delivered on the selected delivery date. Deliveries are usually between 8am and 6pm. We are not responsible for delays outside our control.

Any shortfall in the quantity delivered, or damages to the product, must be written on the delivery note at the time of delivery. When signing for the goods you are agreeing they have been received in full and in good order. We cannot offer any refunds or replacements without this. It is at your own risk if you are not at the property to receive and check the goods.
