GUARANTEES

Antique and vintage items do not come with a guarantee and are sold as seen.

As wood is a natural product, it is subject to movement specially if exposed to extreme changes in temperature. When tables are placed directly on under-floor heating or in very brightly lit rooms (e.g. a conservatory) it has an adverse effect on the timber.


PRODUCT CARE

The customer is responsible for looking after his/her products and taking the necessary measures to maintain the look of the items. Tables in particular will experience wear and tear due to the extensive use they receive.

Wood-

We recommend that our wood tables be treated regularly with Briwax, depending on the finish, in order to preserve their appearance..

Real wood needs to be treated with care. Avoid direct sunlight as this can fade the wood. Wood has a moisture content relative to its surrounding environment. Avoid placing furniture directly in front of intense heat sources such as wood burners or radiators as this will dry out the wood and possibly cause it to shrink and/or warp.

Do not use any harsh abrasives, solvent or silicone based cleaning products on any part of our furniture.

To avoid damage to table tops we strongly advise the use of coasters and place mats. A table cloth may also be recommended if there is an increased risk of spillages.

Steel-

All of our furniture is constructed from industrial grade mild steel. Unlike Stainless steel or Galvanized steel mild steel can be hand polished to produce a more luxurious finish.

Mild steel if untreated is susceptible to corrosion if in contact with moisture. All of our steel furniture is waxed which provides a durable protective finish.

We recommend that any metal surfaces are kept clean by lightly dusting. For more stubborn marks a spray oil such as WD40 can be used with paper towel.  Do not use any harsh solvent or silicone based cleaning products or abrasives.

As with any mild steel item it is impossible to predict how long it will take for rust to develop. We do our best to ensure items are thoroughly protected though cannot guarantee that any rust will not appear at some point in the products life.


ELECTRICAL ITEMS

Electrical items are PAT tested but items should be installed by a qualified electrician.


RESERVING AN ITEM/COLLECTION/STORAGE

An item can be reserved if the item is payed for in full or a minimum 30% deposit is left.  Items will be stored and reserved for a maximum of 28 days in which time the item must be collected.  After this time a storage charge will apply of 20% of the item value per week.  All deposits are non-refundable.
