Terms and Conditions
Delivery charges and timescales vary depending on the type of products ordered, the service you select and the delivery address. We will contact you to book a delivery date within 3 days of your placing an order. If you postpone your delivery within 5 days of the agreed date a re-arrangement charge of £50 may apply.
We will offer you the first available date and time for delivery in your area, if this is not convenient our delivery guide-times may not apply. If the item you have ordered is not in stock and has a lead-time, the delivery time scale is not included in this lead-time.
All delivery dates or times are estimated subject to stock availability and delivery location. We reserve the right to alter or amend estimated delivery dates or times in exceptional circumstances.
All goods must be signed for and should be inspected at the time of delivery. The packaging should be opened carefully and kept in case you need to return the goods. You are responsible for the goods once they have been delivered to the delivery address you gave, and you are liable for any loss or damage thereafter.
We cannot deliver furniture above second floor level unless there is a suitable lift. If you are not available to take delivery at the prearranged time, or the item(s) will not fit through the access points to your property, Rattan Direct Ltd reserves the right to charge you a restocking fee of £70.00. If this necessitates a repeat delivery, a repeat delivery charge must be paid prior to the redelivery even if the original delivery was free of charge. This charge will be calculated according to the number of items to be delivered, availability of a delivery vehicle, your location and complexity of the delivery. In these circumstances, delivery will not take place until the additional charges have been paid to Rattan Direct Ltd.
If your non-returnable goods remain with us for more than four weeks, during which time you fail to accept delivery/redelivery despite Rattan Direct Ltd having contacted you to do so, you will incur storage charges of up to £50 per week. We also reserve the right to cancel your order and retain up to 50% of your order value.
Cancellation and Returns Rights
Under The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, in most cases, you have the right to cancel your contract within 14 days from delivery and get a full refund without giving any reason. This right does not apply to any customised or personalised goods purchased through our website.
To exercise this right please contact us by calling 0800 088 3333 or clicking here to send us a message prior to the expiry of the cancellation rights period. The order must be returned to Rattan Direct within 14 days of contacting us and return postage must be covered by the purchaser.
If you cancel your contract, we will reimburse all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for any supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us).
We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than:
• 14 days after the day we received back from you any goods supplied; or
• (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the goods; or
• if there were no goods supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract.
We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
Rattan Direct reserve the right to cancel any orders where the price was found to be incorrect. An advertised price is not a contract of sale and therefore it is acceptable that Rattan Direct can refuse to complete the transaction if the price has changed.
Rattan Direct is a retailer, not a wholesaler. As such, we reserve the right to cancel excessive orders of individual products without notice.
If you receive an order and find the item just isn’t right for you, don’t worry, goods can be returned for a refund within 30 days from the date of purchase, as outlined in our Returns Policy here.

• up to 30 days: if your goods are faulty, then you can get a refund;
• up to 6 months: if they can't be repaired or replaced, then you're entitled to a full refund, in most cases;
• up to 6 years: if the goods do not last a reasonable length of time, and it can be proven that the fault existed at the time of purchase, you may be entitled to some money back proportionate to the level of use of the item.
This is a summary of some of your key rights. For detailed information from Citizens Advice, click here.
