Right to cancel under Distance Selling Regulations
- If you are a consumer (i.e. acting for purposes outside a business), you have the right (ending 30 days following the day after delivery of goods) to cancel the contract by email to sales@TubChairs.Com or any of the other methods specified in Distance Selling Regulations, in which case we will refund the price paid for the goods plus delivery charges attributable to the cancelled item. You are required to take reasonable care of items. If you cancel, you must return the goods to our above trading address at your expense. We will charge you the direct costs of recovery if you do not comply or if you return them at our expense. (This paragraph does not apply to goods to which the right of cancellation under the Distance Selling Regulations does not apply including goods which are made to your specifications or are clearly personalised.) Should you wish to cancel your order whilst your order is in transit we can issue an RTS (Return to Sender) to our courier. Once the goods are back in our possession we shall refund you the value of the goods ex a flat fee of £25 by way of a failed delivery charge.
- Your above rights under the Distance Selling Regulations are not affected by any separate returns policy on our website.
- Bespoke and "personally made" products can only be returned if it is defective or incorrect in production.
Payment and price
- Payment is in advance by the means stated on our website. We will only process payments if we obtain authorisation from our payment partner.
- The price for the goods you order is as stated on our site at the time you send us your order. VAT or sales tax is included unless we say otherwise.
- If we have miss-priced any item by mistake, we are not obliged to supply the item at that price provided we notify you before we dispatch it. If we do notify you, then you can decide if you want to order the item at the correct price but, if you don’t, we will provide a full refund of any payments already made.
- Delivery costs are included in the advertised prices on the website. There are no hidden charges.
- Your order is an offer to buy from us. Please check your order very carefully to ensure it is correct.
Acceptance / unavailability
- The contract is accepted once payment is taken. In such case no changes to the order or any cancellation may be made except in accordance with your legal rights (e.g. if there is a fault).
- We will only arrange for delivery once we have received full payment in cleared funds. Delivery will be to the address which you specify when ordering.
- Saturday AM deliveries are available at checkout with a £19.99 surcharge. Saturday deliveries take place before midday and are usually executed by TNT, DPD or Tuffnells.
- We will do our best to arrange delivery on the day specified to us by you at checkout. We are not liable for late delivery to the extent that this is due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
- Should you potentially require additional assistance other than the ‘to the front of your property’ service then please let us know PRIOR TO ORDERING and we will accommodate where possible. Please note a time delay on the order and additional costs may be incurred.
- An extra delivery charge may become payable if no-one is present to accept delivery and either you haven’t provided alternative delivery instructions or else you fail to collect the item from a holding depot within 7 days.
- Please note that 90% of our deliveries take place via TNT, DPD or Tuffnells. ALL our couriers offer a ‘to the door service,’ and cannot for insurance purposes enter your premises. We recommend if ordering for an elderly friend or relative that you ensure assistance is on hand to help move the chair into their premises.
- Risk of damage or loss to the goods passes to you on delivery or if you wrongfully refuse delivery when delivery is attempted.
- In the unlikely event of your product being damaged by the carrier whilst in transit, it is very important that you take action immediately. If you suspect damage has occurred, whilst you have the driver/delivery person at your door, you should refuse delivery or ask the driver to wait whilst you unwrap your consignment to check it. If the driver cannot wait, you may sign for the delivery followed by the word UNCHECKED. Following the departure of the delivery driver, please unwrap your consignment at that time to check that it is in good order.
- If it is not in good order, please telephone us on 01283 576811 immediately as we must report any damage in transit on the same day as the delivery.
- Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in us being unable to uplift and replace your consignment as the time constraints for notification of damage to our carrier expire at the end of the day of that delivery.
Faulty or miss-described goods
- In the case of faulty or miss-described goods you must email with photographic evidence with 24hrs of receipt of the goods. If the goods are in fact faulty or miss-described we will make arrangements with you for goods to be replaced or returned for a full refund. If contact is made after the 24hr period we will assess each case individually.
- Measurements are all given in centimetres and are guidelines should you want a more accurate size please give us a ring prior to placing an order with us.

Contract/Commercial use of tub chairs
- For contract upholstery fabric in the UK your fabric needs to be treated to pass BS 5852 Part 2: 1990: Source 5 (Crib 5). All commercial properties in the UK have a “Duty of Care” obligation to ensure that the soft furnishings they have within their premises are treated with a fire retardant chemical to CRIB 5 level. Crib 5 is the certification required as confirmation that a fabric meets the stringent safety requirement to be able to be used in a public areas and must be adhered to comply legally.
- Sloane & Sons will provide you with a certificate as confirmation that your tub chairs have been treated to the required level. This is a fire regulation.
- Reformation Ltd trading as Sloane & Sons accepts no responsibility for supplying commercial premises with chairs where the purchaser has failed to order Contract Tub Chairs to meet the required regulations for their environment. Should you require chairs needed for commercial space, please call us in advance so that we may quote accordingly.

Dimensions/Measurements and Fabric
- All of our chairs are handmade and whereas the measurements we advertise are as accurate as possible, there may be a marginal tolerance either way. All our dimensions are in centimetres and our weights in Kilograms.
Due to fabric yields and the curved nature of many of our chairs we cannot guarantee pattern matching for our Tartans. This is reflective in the price of our chairs. We do try whenever possible to align the patterns but each chair is different.
