Customers who have purchased an adjustable base with their building need to be aware that it is their responsibility to ensure that the ground it will sit on is of a gradient no more than 65mm across the length or width of the base, the area should also be devoid of obstructions and not overly saturated with water. If the fitting team deem the ground is not suitable, the installation will be aborted.
Please be aware that our fitting team will not install the building onto a portable base not purchased from our website.
If you are unsure about anything to do with our recommended range of adjustable bases, please contact our customer service help line number before making your purchase, alternatively you can email us.
Our fitting team requires unobstructed access for product delivery and entry to the fitting site. Any failed, abortive or return delivery charges shall be recovered from the Buyer if the base is deemed unsuitable for assembly or assembly is not possible due to access restrictions. We only recommend concrete bases for Log Cabins and larger workshops and summerhouses.
The Seller will not bear any abortive costs arising from or due to a failed delivery / installation.
If the assembly team have to leave the site before completion for reasons beyond our control including the reasons stated above then the assembly charge will not be refundable.
If on arrival, the base does not fully comply with the above and installation is abandoned, the buyer will become liable for the installation service fee. This fee will be retained by the Seller to cover the initial incurred labour costs. The product can be left on site and the Buyer given the option of either self-assembly or preparing an appropriate base upon which a return visit can be arranged subject to payment of an additional erection service fee.
If the buyer decides to cancel the order once the fitting team have finished the installation, the fitting charge will not be refunded if the customer wishes to return the building within the 7 days.
If the buyer decides to cancel the assembly on the day of assembly there will be a cost to the customer. The assembly charge will not be refundable.
If the assembly team have to leave the site before completion for reasons beyond our control including the reasons stated above then we will retain the cost of the installation and either simply deliver the building to the site at the time to enable the customer to assemble the order themselves or return the product(s) to base and charge an additional 50% of the installation cost (with a £75 + VAT minimum charge) to cover a second visit to complete the installation.
