Free installation on ALL orders. Free delivery on all orders over £75.00 + VAT within the M25 area only. OUR NEXT DAY DELIVERY SERVICE IS ONLY APPLICABLE TO LONDON/M25 AREAS, IF ITEMS ARE ORDERED BEFORE 2PM (MON – THURS). AFTER 2PM THURSDAY, ITEMS WILL BE DELIVERED THE FOLLOWING MONDAY. FOR INFO ON DELIVERY TO ALL OTHER AREAS INCLUDING NORTHAMPTON PLEASE CALL 0800 559 3917. Deliveries outside of the aforementioned areas will incur an additional delivery charge.

1 - Orders
The Andrews Office Furniture website is an offer to treat only. Any contract shall consist of the buyer’s order and the seller’s acceptance thereof. Any order accepted by the seller shall be subject to the seller’s conditions of sale, and no other conditions shall apply, unless expressly agreed with in writing by the seller.
Please note, we check our website regularly for pricing errors, but mistakes can happen! We reserve the right to cancel any order before or after confirmation of your order. If any payment has been taken, this will be refunded back to you, via your method of original payment.
Delivery is FREE on all orders of over £75.00 + VAT, only within London & M25 areas. For next day delivery items, order by 2pm for next working day delivery to London/M25 areas.
Deliveries are carried out Monday - Friday between the hours of 8:30am and 5pm. Saturday deliveries are available at a premium, upon request. Excludes bank holidays. We are unable to give an exact timed delivery, but will endeavour to accommodate your requests.
For payment by cheque we operate the Transax system, which instantly checks your credit, and can provide a guarantee, if it is satisfied the payment will clear. Once we have received your cheque, and this has cleared, we can order and arrange delivery of your order.
Methods of payment accepted are by card online, through our secure payment system, with Sagepay.
If you require an exact delivery date, please call or email in the first instance and we'll do our best to accommodate.
2 - Pricing
Although every effort is made to ensure the prices stated on the website, in-store, or via email, are correct, should an error on price occur, and an order is placed, you will be informed, and given the option of continuing the order at the correct price, or cancelling the order. All prices are subject to VAT at 20%.
For orders less than £75.00 + VAT, we do have to charge £10.00 delivery per order. This is to cover the ever-increasing number of parking tickets we are receiving, along with the rising cost of diesel; but remember, we install your furniture for no extra cost. Please have the appropriate area ready to accept delivery. If the delivery is postponed or rescheduled, a charge may be made of 25% (£50.00 + vat minimum).
For deliveries outside of the M25 please call or email for costs. Please also advise of any parking restrictions on site, including red routes or yellow lines. Failure to inform us of any parking issues may delay delivery. Delivery costs include full installation of your furniture on site by our skilled delivery fitters, including removal of any packaging. Self assembly of furniture will invalidate manufacturer's guarantees and a charge will be made, should the company have to return to assemble or rectify. Please note that a signed delivery note or acceptance of furniture confirms delivery of goods.
We aim to deliver next working day (on orders from our next day range, when made before 2pm), but there will be times when we are unable to do this. For deliveries outside of the M25, or in outlying areas within the M25, it may take a little longer, as we don't normally have delivery vans in these areas every day. If this is the case, we will let you know when we are likely to have delivery vans in your area; if you have any queries, please call 020 7609 0737 or email [email protected]
We can also recycle your old furnishings - please ask for costs.
3 - Delivery Time
Deliveries are carried out Monday - Friday between the hours of 8:30am and 5pm. Saturday delivery is available at a premium, upon request. Excludes bank holidays.
We are unable to give an exact timed delivery, but will endeavour to accommodate your requests on the day of delivery.
For delivery in the Northampton area, and outside of London/M25 border areas, delivery may take 7 - 10 working days.
Orders made on a Saturday on Sunday would be delivered Tuesday onward.
Any shortages or queries discovered upon or after delivery must be reported within 24 hours, otherwise, unfortunately, we are unable to accept any claims.
4 - Payment Terms
Preferred method of payment is by credit/debit card, or cheque. A credit account can be opened, providing you have been trading for one year, and are registered for VAT, and can provide the necessary trade references. Any account opened will be after the first order is paid in full. Please email [email protected] for more details. All Government bodies, including Councils, Schools, Universities, NHS etc. qualify for instant credit facilities. Once an account has been opened, terms are net cash within 30 days of date on invoice. We accept VISA, Mastercard, Delta, and Switch in-store, and Amex, Sagepay and Paypal online.
* Invoice to be paid in 30 days and late payment surcharges will automatically be applied on all late payment received.
* Please note payment is due at the time of order (unless an account is held or a deposit has been agreed), and that goods remain the property of Andrews Office Furniture until paid for in full.
5 - Retention of Ownership
Property of the goods remains with the seller until full payment has been received by the seller. Until full payment is received, Andrews Office Furniture may, at any time, recover the goods, and may enter the buyer’s premises for this purpose. Nevertheless, the responsibility of the condition of goods passes to the buyer on delivery, and the buyer shall promptly effect and maintain in the joint names of the parties, insurance of the goods against loss or damage, in their full invoice price, until final payment.
6 - Guarantee
Except as herein expressly provided and as provided by law, the seller does not supply goods with the benefit of any term, warranty or condition, express or implied, as to the merchantability of the goods, or their suitability for any purpose whatsoever. As far as it is able, the seller will assign to the buyer all rights conferred on it, by any of its suppliers. Insofar as quality of materials used in goods manufactured for the seller is concerned, the seller shall have the option to repair, replace (or at its sole discretion, refund to the buyer the price of the goods, without any further liability), parts agreed by it as being defective, and which have been returned to it, carriage paid, within a minimum period of 1 year from the date of delivery to the buyer’s works.
Goods subjected to fair wear and tear, misuse, defective maintenance, alteration or modification, are excluded from this guarantee. Goods covered are subject to single shift working only (8 hour working day). In no case shall the liability of the seller hereunder exceed that of the actual manufacturer of the particular goods or parts thereof. Any liability on the part of the seller is subject to terms of payment being met.
Any faulty furniture should be reported as soon as a fault is identified and we would then visit your office to repair, or if this is not possible, we would return to the manufacturer for repair, which can take up to 2 weeks. This applies to under-warranty or guarantee products - for products not under guarantee or warranty a charge may be made.
7 - Technical Description & Data
Such descriptions whilst given as a guide, in good faith, are subject to alteration by the seller without notice. In particular all weights and dimensions are approximate only. All maximum load capacities stated are for evenly distributed loads only. It is the buyers responsibility to check dimensions at the time of ordering. In case of any size query, please call prior to ordering, as once orders are placed, and/or delivery is made, we are unable to return.
8 - Consequential Loss
Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by the seller’s negligence, or as herein provided, the seller shall not be liable to the buyer for any consequential loss or damage (whether for loss or profit or otherwise), costs or expenses, or their claims for consequential loss whatsoever, which arise out of, or in connection with, the supply of the goods, or their use or re-sale. Andrews Office Furniture may also cancel a delivery due to circumstances beyond our control, and would not be liable to the buyer for any costs.
9 - Claims
Notification of non-delivery must be made in writing immediately at the time of delivery, and for shortages or damage, within 1 day of receipt of goods. Failing this, no claims will therefore be entertained.
10 - Returned Goods
Goods will be accepted back for credit only, with the express permission of Andrews Office Furniture. Please contact us for instructions. Made-to-order or special order items cannot be accepted back in to stock. If you decided to cancel your made-to-order or special order product for any reason, it is unlikely that we could sell it to another customer at full selling price.
Made-to-order or special order is defined as not carried in stock in our warehouse or stores, and having to be ordered directly from one of our manufacturers.
Goods ordered via our website can be returned up to 14 calendar days after delivery. This is known as the cooling off period. This only applies to goods still in their original wrapping and not used or opened. Special order and made-to-order goods are non-returnable. Goods unwrapped, and/or opened and/or assembled are non-returnable. You can return the goods to our warehouse at your own expense, as long as they are still in their original wrapping. A charge will be made of 25% (minimum £50.00) for any recollection by our delivery team. We strongly recommend that, if in doubt, visit one of our showrooms to view and try the product first. We also advise that, if you are in doubt, do not accept the delivery, so as to avoid subsequent collection costs. Goods purchased from showrooms are non-returnable unless agreed in advance, and in any event a minimum charge would apply of 25%.
Our usual refund & return policy does not apply to made-to-order products, which cannot be returned or exchanged, unless faulty. The above conditions do not affect your statutory rights when goods are faulty, or not as described. Goods must be returned in their original packaging, unused, unassembled and in a sellable condition. Credit shall not be given for goods received damaged. The buyer shall, unless otherwise stated, be responsible for the cost of the return carriage of all goods returned, which shall be at the risk of the buyer, until actual receipt of the goods by Andrews Office Furniture. Proof of return delivery will remain with the buyer. We reserve the right to charge for incomplete returns, orders placed in error, or not wanted.
