It is the customers' responsibility to check that the goods ordered fit into the required space/position, can fit into the premises they are to be located in, including that the goods can fit into lifts, up stairways, through doors and corridors etc. BT office furniture will not accept responsibility for goods ordered being returned for any of these reasons, unless we agree in writing. In some circumstances BT office furniture will alter/ replace goods to ensure they fit, but again, bespoke & made to order items cannot be returned, only altered or replaced, this can often incur extra cost to the client unless BT office furniture are at fault, then we would rectify the problem free of charge, but would not accept the goods being returned. It is the buyers' responsibility to check colours and finish's of products and not rely on computer images, if unsure please ask a representative for colour & finish swatch's, we can send you these by post. BT office furniture will not accept goods being returned if the buyer decides the colour or finish is not suitable.
All sizes and measurements are approximate, and the finished goods, once manufactured can often alter slightly in their dimensions, the buyer will need to account for this when checking sizes etc, or ask a representative for more accurate measurements.
