Terms and Conditions
'The Company' means Just Artificial Limited and 'the Customer' means the person, firm, company or corporation who orders, purchases and/or contracts to order or purchase goods off the Company.
These terms and conditions apply in preference to and supersede any terms and conditions referred to, offered to or relied on by the Company whether in negotiation or at any stage in the dealings between the Company and Customer with reference to the goods which this contract relates. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, the Company will not be bound by any document or printed term furnished by the Customer in any of its documents, unless the Customer specifically states in writing separately from such terms that it intends such terms to apply and the Company acknowledges such notifications in writing.
These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
The products/goods are and will remain the property of Just Artificial Limited until the goods have been paid for in full.
All prices are excluding planter(s), top dressings, props etc. unless specified in the item description.
Goods are not sold on a trial, hire or loan basis.
We get a lot of requests for samples, to make it fair for all and keep our costs down we recommend a sale or return basis.This is where you purchase one unit of an item and if not suitable return it within 3 days, at your cost for a full refund on the product (but not any P&P costs either way). Notwithstanding that a sample of the goods has been exhibited to and inspected by the buyer, it is hereby declared that such a sample was so exhibited and inspected solely to enable the buyer to judge for himself the quality.
The description of the goods has been given by the way of identification only and the use of such description shall not constitute sale by description.
All measurements are approximate, mainly due to the nature of some items using natural stems and depending on how the foliage and branches are shaped. In general most potted plants and trees are measured from the floor/bottom of the pot to the top branch. Unpotted items may include the stem in the measurement although we try to make it clear by stating the length from the stem or the length of the stem. Most stemmed flowers are measurements from the bottom of the stem to the top of the flower head. Typically most widths will be measured at the widest point. If overall dimensions are critical to your purchase please contact us first to help check suitability.
Whilst we endeavour to naturally reproduce the colours of the products accurately in the images shown on our website, we cannot guarantee that your computer and monitor's settings will display any colours/products exactly the same. The words we use to label colours on our products may be subjective to personal opinion - some definitions on colours (for example Lavender, Lilacs, Purples, Mauves etc.) are difficult to generally catergorise to match everyones opinion.
Neither the Customer nor the Company shall be bound by any variation, waiver of, or addition to these conditions except as agreed by both parties in writing and signed on their behalf.
Any dates and times quoted for delivery are to be treated as an estimate and the Company shall not be liable whatsoever for failure to deliver by such date or time.
The risk of goods will pass to the Customer at the time of despatch from the Companies premises so that they will be at the buyers risk during transit and thereafter. We take great care packing orders and use reputable couriers, however if it is not possible to check goods on delivery please sign the delivery note as ‘damaged’, so that in the unlikely event that any damages have occured during transport we can claim with the transport company.
VERY IMPORTANT - The driver will normally require a signature, if you leave a signed note for the courier to leave the goods in a safe location you do so entirely at your own risk as to the state and safe keeping of the product. Just Artificial Limited and our courier companies used can take no responsibility for goods that are not checked or signed for at the time of delivery.
If in the unlikely event that your goods arrive damaged please refuse delivery. Please note that damages to packaging do not necessarily mean that the contents will be damaged - please check!
It is your responsibility to provide an accurate and complete delivery address and for the delivery address to be accessible to our courier. Should any items be returned to us due to incorrect delivery addresses supplied or the courier not being able to complete the delivery due to inaccessibility or no one being in, we reserve the right to charge an additional delivery cost to re-deliver. In the instance of an initial failed delivery our couriers should leave a card with instructions and attempt a second delivery the next working day before returning items back to us. For Royal Mail deliveries they should leave a card and take it back to your local depot where they will hold it for a week before returning it to us. It is your responsibility to contact either us, the courier or Royal Mail before the goods get returned to us.
The product prices shown on the website exclude all delivery charges. Delivery charges are shown in your basket as your order progresses and are for UK mainland destinations (*see below). If the delivery address is not UK mainland you can still complete and make payment for your order, then on receipt of your order (if the delivery costs are higher than you have paid) we will either email or telephone you with the extra delivery cost payable. At this point we would ask you to tell us if you wish to proceed with the order on that basis or cancel it. We can deliver goods locally, Nationally, Internationally and WorldWide. With prior arrangement you can collect goods in person from our showroom. In this case it is essential you contact us first encase we don't have all your items etc.and to save a wasted journey.
Bespoke items, large trees and pre potted products (i.e. in GRP planters) may vary from our standard above amount and will be charged at cost. We strongly recommend that pre potted trees be delivered on pallets as this reduces the risk of damage. MDF Pots and very large items are also recommend to travel on a pallet (we can advise). European, International and WorldWide Deliveries will be charged at cost, which will be the best price we can find at the time, based on the packaging sizes and weights.
Goods will be despatched by the most convenient means unless otherwise agreed in writing/by e-mail.
