Terms and conditions
While every effort is made to deliver and fit to the customer’s satisfaction, delivery promises are approximate only, and failure to deliver on the
stated date at a specific time shall not render us liable for damages, lost time, or any other consequential loss. As soon as carpets are available
we will contact the customer to arrange the earliest convenient date for sub-contract fitting.
Absolutely Fabulous Flooring cannot accept any responsibility for difficulties arising from incorrect measurements given by customers
PIPES AND CABLES
It is the customer’s responsibility to notify Absolutely Fabulous Flooring in writing of the location of any pipes or cables which might be damaged
during fitting. No responsibility can be accepted for damage to under floor pipes or cables or for consequential damage to property or fitting
unless written notification has been given as stated above.
While every effort is made to ensure satisfaction exact colour/design matching cannot be guaranteed between widths of carpet due to
manufacturing tolerances over which we have no control. Neither can exact matching be guaranteed between carpet supplied and the sample
displayed in the store.
Plain carpet is subject to shading with use, due to pile pressure. It is not a manufacturing fault and does not affect the durability of the carpet.
LOOP PILE CARPET
It is suggested that suction type cleaners only be used on this type of carpet.

of such clearance is not included in our quotation.
It is assumed that when work commences the sub-floor is sound, level and in a smooth condition. The estimate overleaf does not include any sub-floor preparation unless specifically stated.

facilities are available for THREE months only thereafter a monthly charge will be made.
