Delivery will be arranged within our normal delivery areas on designated days. Requests for specially timed deliveries may be possible but will be subject to an extra charge. The Product is your responsibility from the time we deliver the Product to: (i) the address you gave us; (ii) to your own third party carrier. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that access to their property will not inhibit delivery and that hazards and restrictions that could cause damage or harm be removed. If rescheduling of delivery has to be rearranged due to any restrictions or hazards presented to our delivery team, a rescheduling charge may be applicable. The customer is asked to examine the goods as soon as reasonably possible after delivery and notify the company of any fault or damage as soon as reasonably possible.

Lead Times
All dates quoted at the time of sale are made in good faith and are not legally binding and whilst we always make every effort to honor them, it must be recognised that they are estimates only and consequently we cannot accept liability or damage claims resulting from overdue deliveries.

Delivery Costs
Delivery costs are automatically calculated by Belgica Furniture at the time of check out when you are ordering.

Storage
If you are unable to take delivery of the goods when they become available, storage can be arranged for a maximum of 6 weeks, as long as payment of full balance has been received.

Additional Costs
There may be further costs incurred when a delivery date and time set between belgicafurniture.com and the customer and the customer fails to attend to accept the delivery of the goods. When the customer fails to highlight specific delivery details which may cause problems and delay the delivery of the goods to the customer, e.g. lack of notification to belgicafurniture.com delivery service that a door or window will have to be removed in order for goods to be placed inside the building. When the customer does not notify belgicafurniture.com delivery service that there are adverse circumstances, which could affect the delivery of a product. For example the lift in the building is not in operation. 

In any of these circumstance belgicafurniture .com reserve the right to charge an additional delivery charge in order to rectify the situation and ensure delivery. This also ensures that the goods, which the customer ordered, are in the best condition and have not been damaged in previous delivery attempts and so at the time of final delivery goods are in ideal condition.

7. Product Characteristics
As products, methods and materials continually improve we reserve the right to change specifications from time to time. We will not make any significant variations without your agreement following confirmation of your order.

Leather Products 
Age adds character and reflects how the leather furniture has been used during its lifetime. Over the years, leather adapts itself to the user and develops a personalised and individual look. With regular use, as the leather fibers relax, we expect that comfort creases may form in the areas that receive the most body contact, such as seat and back cushions. All these signs serve as more evidence of the leather's authenticity and should be no cause for concern. Dyes are absorbed differently throughout the hide and some colour variation is normal and expected. Colour variation ranges from slight in pigmented top-coat protected finishes, to distinct, in semi or full aniline finished leathers, with no colour pigments. Scars, wrinkles and folds all contribute to the natural beauty of top grain leathers and do not affect the performance or longevity of the leather. The appearance of these characteristics varies from minimal to prominent, depending on the hide selection and processing.

Care for Wooden Furniture 
It is very important to ensure that the house humidity is kept at a constant level between 40% and 60% as this will prevent your wooden furniture from cracking or warping as well as preventing any doors or drawers from sticking. A correct humidity is essential for maintaining your wooden furniture. House humidity can be measured with a hygrometer. The humidity can be kept constant by placing water trays on your radiators or through the use of a humidifier. Alongside humidity, a constant room temperature is equally as important. The ideal temperature during the day is 21 degrees Celsius and at night no less than 14 degrees Celsius. Care kits are available online at belgicafurniture.com.

Variation in product specification 
Due to the shortage of certain new raw materials some products supplied by the Company could differ slightly in actual construction from the goods shown in sample or pattern form. The Company state any changes that are made will result in a performance of an equally high or improved standard. The quality coding will remain the same and the quality guarantee will continue to apply.

Extended Care
Belgica Furniture offers extended care through Staingard and Guardsman. Please see www.staingard.co.uk www.guardsman.co.uk for full details. If you wish to purchase addition piece of mind for your furniture, you can do this at the time of purchase. Otherwise please contact us to arrange this: enquiries@belgicafurniture.com
Please note if you wish to have this cover this can only be added before you receive delivery of your products.
